Flowers and paint

Good morning bloggers! My laptop isn't fixed yet but I thought I would post anyway, I miss it! It's taking me a little longer with this computer but it's working so that's a plus! I figured I would start off the post with some pretty. My hubby brought these flowers home for me last week and they were so pretty. I couldn't get a good picture to capture all the colors but they were beautiful.

The dining room has been bugging me for a while. I love the paint color in the living room but the lighting difference in the dining room made it much darker, and bluer. I've had a bunch of paint swatches on the walls for weeks trying to decide on something which leads to this......

A huge mess! I did finally decide on a color and it's coming along! I appreciated all your suggestions on painting my chairs! For now I'm going to leave them be and see how they are with the new wall color. My hesitation is that the dining room is our main eating area and the chairs would chip easily with kids who put their feet under them to eat and buttons and such on pants. I'm worried I'd be repainting them constantly.

I'll be back soon with the results. This will be the 3rd color this room has seen in 2 years. I told my husband if this color doesn't work out, we're moving.

Are your kids back to school? Are you happy or sad about the start of a new year? Mine start next week and yes, I'm one of those moms. You know, the ones putting the kids on the bus and then dancing on the sidewalk. I need the routine back, I need some time without kids arguing over the Wii and who gets which swing, and I need to clean! Heck with spring cleaning, I'm going to do fall cleaning while the kids are at school!

Watch out dust bunnies, I'm a coming for ya!!

Hey Remember Me?

It's been a long time! This summer has been so busy, it's flown by. How has your summer been? Good I hope!

I'll be back to blogging soon hopefully. My laptop decided it didn't feel like working anymore so all we have right now is an ancient desktop computer that is painfully slow. I won't dare upload any pictures or anything so I'm kind of stuck until the laptop is fixed or we get a replacement.

Just wanted to pop in and say hello! I miss all my blogging friends! I'm also longing for fall, I am an autumn girl through and through, hence the picture. That little boy will be 5 in a couple weeks, hard to believe. Time goes so fast.
