Once again with the tidbits

It may only be Tuesday, but this week has been crazy already. The reasons for this include:

1. Gabbie is starting in the toddler room in daycare this week. They move them up gradually, and she’s only on day two, so she’s spending two hours there this morning. I just can’t believe my itty bitty baby is big enough to be in the toddler room already. That said, it’s also amazing how big she looks next to the babies in the baby room. It’s definitely time for her to move on, but it’s a little hard on all of us, especially since she loves her baby room teachers so much. They’re sad she’s moving up too. (Of course, it doesn’t help that I have a horrible case of PMS in the middle of all of this sadness.)

2. This weekend we bought a new range and refrigerator for our kitchen, which I expected but not quite so soon. That’s totally fine with me, though. I’m really excited to get them in, but they won’t be delivered for another two weeks. They had to order them since we wanted black and apparently all anyone carries anymore is stainless steel. I just didn’t want to have to deal with that many fingerprints on my appliances. However, we do have to do some work on the kitchen in order to get the refrigerator to fit, so there will be some demolition this week/weekend, not to mention some plumbing since we will now have an icemaker/water dispenser. We did manage to buy one of the biggest refrigerators on the market, but we got it for a steal because they had it priced incorrectly in their system. Score one for us!

3. Speaking of house stuff, we’re painting this weekend. We’re starting with our bedroom, and I’m having trouble deciding on colors. I want something kind of like Tiffany Blue, or Martha Stewart’s Vintage Map color (it’s about halfway down the page), but I can’t decide how light or dark to go. Our furniture has a deep brown finish, and we’re doing white accents. I just can’t wait to get something painted, because our house is all various shades of beige leftover from the previous owners. Then we just have to decide what color to paint Gabbie’s room (yellow or purple), both upstairs bathrooms, the kitchen (I’m thinking a kind of avocado green), the dining room, and the family room (the most contentious room colorwise – we can’t seem to come to an agreement). There are plenty of other rooms to paint too, but the spare bedroom will be last and dependent on “future baby”, which is what we call the hypothetical second child right now.

I love the blue color for your bedroom, and with dark furniture and white accents I think it would be beautiful.

I'm trying to think if there was any contention with colors when we were painting our house, and I don't think there was. I think Joe just kind of went with what I decided. I guess that's one of the perks of having a husband who cares very little about decorating. (Plus, the colors in that house were so hideous before, ANYTHING was an improvement.)

I love our French door fridge! A word of warning: Andrew has this habit of grabbing onto the freezer bar and leaning backwards in a baby death drop, and I'm trying to stop him now before he gets strong enough to actually OPEN the freezer using this method and really hurts himself (he's almost there). Hopefully Gabbie is not quite so daring!

Our bedroom in Birmingham was that blue color, white accents, and cherry furniture. I loved it so much that when we moved to Arkansas, I painted the rent house bedrooms that color.

Your house is beautiful (you bet I clicked right on over to check it out!)!!

I think that vintage map color would be awesome for a bedroom! It sounds like you have a lot of work to do but it'll all be worth it in the end.

Best of luck!
