Excuse me while I clear my virtual throat, for it has been some time since my last post.  It's funny but my last few posts have started somewhat like this. 

Well it has been nearly 3 months since ventured out in blogland and let me say that I've missed you all so much.  I miss our friendly banter, back and forth how do you do's and I've even missed some new friends whom I haven't even had the chance to become acquainted with.

So as you can see I've dusted my shelves, packed up the old, and now I'm in with the new (new blog look that is).  I figure I needed a fresh start.

So what's new you'll probably ask?  I've been a busy bee.  I've been working like crazy, bought a new car, went on a vacation to Disneyland, been to the beach a couple of times, and we just dropped the kids off at Grandma's house for 4 weeks (maybe that explains why I have the time to blog)!

As for my home decor...alas it remains the same except for a few nick-nacks and new bedding.  My cupboards are still a drab maple and I haven't bought any new furniture.  I can't help but post some pictures of the kitchens that inspire me.  Maybe I can make a weekend trip to Lowe's for paint.  I've already been searching Benjamin Moore's color choices.

I'm really liking this pale blue to lighten things up.

I'm also leaning towards the white subway tiles.

Wish me luck ladies...
It will take some time to get to these levels.



  1. Why hello there! Glad you're back.

  3. I have been so drawn to soft blues lately. In fact, we're going to be painting most of the main floor in our house a pale grey/blue. Good luck with your changes =)

  4. Welcome back :) It's looking very pretty around here. A fresh look always feels nice doesn't it :)

  5. Hello, I am glad to hear from you. I can't wait to see what you achieve with the kitchen. Be sure to check out blue and white tiles as well. Just a suggestion.
