Candice Olson, where are you?

Turns out, on this 3rd day of April and 15th day of Spring, we've got 6 inches of snow heading our way. Nevermind the 71 degrees we were teased with awhile back.  I was thinking flip flops and skirts were overrated anyway.

Not!

But we're ready for it. There's no point in rocking the boat while Mother Nature is trying to drive.  Right Norah?


And since I apparently left out a number of details in my last post about my mom's lost wedding ring, I tweeted answers back to your burning questions.  Did you find them?  Then I figured, I would be dying to know exactly what the two missing rings looked like, therefore I'm sure you all are the same way, so have at it:


We're not back in our house yet. However, Mr. Marvelous has assured me that the appliances are back in place and our new space is starting to look a little like a functional kitchen.  Luke and I will see for ourselves tonight.  We're headed back home for a few days to try and make a dent in the construction dust and pick a paint color for the walls.  Thanks for all your ideas.  And I'll have you know, after much deliberation, Mr. Marvelous and I have narrowed our color choices down to an undecided shade of gray and shade of aquamarine.  We'll look at the floors, cabinets, counters and natural lighting and decide tomorrow.  

If only I were an interior designer and had some sort of common knowledge of paints and walls, and such.  

For now, I'm off to click around in cyberland to find more inspiration kitchens.  Time is tickin'.  Candice Olson, where are you?

Norah does look as if she is ready for the arctic breeze that's coming your way.

Sorry, but I have to admit I was wearing flipflops and shorts just today. We're in full-on Spring mode down here in the Deep South! Hang on, your time is coming ;-)

paint color is so hard! but especially gray. I just bought 2 gallons of a certain gray color that was sooo light it looks white. many hours (12.5ft ceilings later) we have white looking walls - at least it's fresh I guess.

I had to go 2 shades darker, the darkest gray on the card! to get to a shade I liked for the last little space I had to paint.

*on your twitter* sorry your first choice paint didn't work out but you'll find something you love!!

She actually gave you the ring so that you could take pics of it? Your mom is a brave woman!
