[color kreyv]: Gray Kitchens

You know I'm a white girl when it comes to kitchens (and...really all the time since I am caucasian--just in case there was any confusion there). A-ny-who...every now and again, I come across a gray kitchen that is so swoon-worthy, that it ALMOST makes me want to change my ways. I mean, really, where do we even start with these beauts? Total. Swoon.

Ceiling Love

Oh hi.  Remember me? Yes, almost three months later and still trying to get my groove back. I'll find it, right? RIGHT? Please tell me I'll find it! (And don't tell me if I won't, mmmkay?!) Anyway, how absolutely stunning are these ceilings? I would so move into anyone of these houses without even seeing any other rooms, that's how beautiful these are. Ok. I wouldn't really do that, but let's be honest: To. Die. For.

[color kreyv]: Pink

According to Stella, yesterday was the best day ever. She started preschool (I cried, she didn't.); I bought her a kids' meal from Chick-Fil-A, and the toy was, apparently, the coolest thing ever; she got to visit Daddy at the clinic; and she got to go to the dentist, which she loves. I have to agree with Stella and say that yesterday was, indeed, pretty awesome. I had a cookies and cream shake to help drown my sorrows from the preschool drop-off, and I also got to take a nap. It wasn't a long one, but it was a nap. Best. Day. Ever.

TV's and Fireplaces. And Husbands with Opinions.

So, the hubs and I have been discussing TVs and fireplaces lately. It's actually not my first choice to have the TV over the fireplace, but that's kind of where a lot of floor plans make you put it, and I'm fine with that. The debate is all about the size. Obviously, the TV most definitely cannot be as wide as the fireplace. (Ummm, hello, right?) I am really insisting on at least 10-12 inches on each side. Of course, Hubs disagrees, because, well, apparently the size of your TV is directly associated with the level of manliness you possess. I mean, don't get me wrong. I want to see the real housewives on a big screen just as much as the next person, but I've never been one to put function in front of aesthetics. Sigh. Here I go having to compromise again...which means we're going to need a larger fireplace.

[color kreyv]: Emerald Green

How absolutely gorgeous is emerald green? I love it. It is so bold, refreshing, and sophisticated. I think I have pinned the first image at least three times. I want those chairs for my own dining room table. I'm pretty sure that if I had those chairs, all I'd need is a crown--and I'm really not opposed to that.
