My Style Monday, April 26th, 2010
I love that our third bedroom is big enough to do double duty as a guest room & a home office. There is a big television & a couch, so My Prince can almost use the guest room area as a "man cave," when we aren't entertaining guests.
(Well, if he ignores the pink walls...they were from the previous owners! I just like them fine & haven't done anything to them yet. ;))
& the office really gets to act as my office since I am staying at home right now, & My Prince has his own fancy pants office that is quite a bit bigger. ;) I have
& we don't have enough shelves for them all. I also need a new desk.
But it is nice to have a place in the house that is ridiculously feminine & all "me" with no consideration to men or toddlers. There are legitimately file cabinets & that sort of boring thing, as well, so I can actually get away with calling it an office. ;)
But if I had my way...

Pretty Little Bare Feet & I are embarking on a project to get our kitchen as close to "dream kitchen" mode as we can get in this house.
(Well, without actually getting new appliances, cabinets, counters, flooring, etc.)
We've set ourselves a little goal of being done by the end of May. Y'all be sure & hound me about it, so I'll stay on top of it. My kitchen has a lot that I already love about it, so that's why I gave myself such an "easy" little project for right now - a room that's already on its way. With the cookbook shelf project underway, & the hunt for the memo board on; I just thought now would be the perfect time to "finish" the kitchen!
(As though anything is ever "finished" in our homes, right, ladies?!)
