Small Kitchen, Dark Cabinets

It's Tuesday?? 

Honestly, the days have been so full that my head is spinning. Today is not any less busy. There is cheer camp for the second grader after school, then curriculum night and an ice cream social at the fifth grader's school. We won't get home until after bedtime.

We made an offer on a house this weekend, but it has been countered. :(  Let's all keep our fingers crossed that this works out! It's not a perfect house, but it did seem perfect for us.

I forgot to mention in my post about Havahd House (don't you hear JFK's voice when you say that in your head? I do.) that I wanted to paint the cabinets in the very small kitchen a great greyish-green color. Then House Beautiful went and posted this room...

House Beautiful

I am planning to show you a design plan for at least one more of the houses that we DIDN'T buy later this week. Totes different than Havahd House... or our dream house. (My big deep thought for the week is that things happen the way they are supposed to happen.)

Check out this house I ran across this morning. It was originally designed for the grandson of auto manufacturer RE Olds (remember the Oldsmobile??). It's huge at nearly 4,500 square feet but will need A LOT of updating. I'm sure I can come up with a design plan if someone wants to come up with the $339,000 to buy it.

Here are some of the links I love this week:

The How-To Mom offers nine ideas for re-connecting with your kid(s).

Positively Present teaches us how to fall in love with ourselves.

The Reluctant Entertainer writes about letting our homes be good enough to share with others.

Round 4 (?) of the One Room Challenge begins next month as well as the Nester's 31-day series (this year with categories!). The Inspired Room has a series going already: Falling for Fall with link-up. 

And... I just posted a picture of my ring on Instagram and have un-secreted the weddings board on Pinterest. Go check it out!
