i need to remind myself that i am ultimately a mom so wiping my children's nose for 100th time is my duty, as well as cleaning spit up off the new rug, hanging out in the doctor's office sick room for 2 hrs, and wearing mix match pj's is just a fact of my life. even if, in my head, i have a totally different picture! maybe that is why this blog is such a good outlet :)
*on a side note: since i have been housebound for the last week w/ sick kiddos, i thought i would do something for myself...i got out the real simple i received in the mail yesterday and tried these faces while applying my makeup. it is suppose to make your makeup look better. for me, it provided a much needed laugh! happy weekend.

i had several questions and emails about painting my kitchen so i thought i would do one last post and then you don't have to hear about it anymore :)
my paint colors were Benjamin Moore from the Classic Color collection. the cabinets were oil base, which is not my favorite thing to use but the durability is a lot better.
cabinets: Vapor Trails 1556 (this is actually one shade lighter then Sally Wheat's kitchen)
and the walls: Northern Cliffs 1536
a lot of people also asked about my chair fabric....its one of my spare DR chairs and the stripe is lulu dk's catwalk light blue w/ brown.
thanks a million for all of your sweet comments! it was fun sharing the process and even more fun to get the "after" product!
and i can't end w/out saying happy valentine's day!! seriously, can this cake make its way into my kitchen so i can eat it?!! xoxox

it's taken me long enough but i think my kitchen is finally okay to show y'all. when we moved in the previous owners had a lot of green accents throughout the house so the kitchen color made sense with their design scheme (real estate listing pic).
