greetings. i am an apartment dweller yet.
we have not closed on the house, nor have i had the slightest thought about packing. things are at a standstill, and that is fine with me. i need some time to catch my breath and maybe bake. we're thinking things might start rolling once we hit november. but there is some news.. we've been doing some painting. you can see the color i chose for the new kitchen in the advertisement above. it's the buttery looking square. {sweet idea for a little girl's room, right? the pattern is called 'neapolitan delight'. too cute.} i knew that i wanted something light because it is such a small kitchen, and something warm because i like to feel cozy. so i aimed somewhere between classy creamy white and very mellow yellow. hopefully i got it right. we went with macaroni by martha stewart. thoughts?
and on today's agenda..
shortly.. preschool, pumpkin party today.
later.. meat market, pick up ground beef.
tonight.. off to the 'big city.' dinner + a movie.
have a merry day. i'm wearing orange and ready to party with my 4 year olds.

When you said a butter yellow I knew that I was going to like it.
