...but all is well here. LOL I think everyone is just CRAZY with all the fun summer stuff going on, and we are no different. Let's see....what is new? Our main focus right now is house stuff. I think I mentioned before....but we are building a home. Well, WE are not actually building it (can you imagine me out there banging nails? LOL)....the house building people are building it for us. YAY for them! BUT, we designed the plan and are picking out every single thing. SO exciting, and SOOOOOOOOOO stressful at the same time. I'd heard that if a marriage can make it through building a home together...you can make it through anything. And at this point I am not doubting that for a second! It's ROUGH!!! The crazy thing is that DH and I have the exact same taste when we are actually looking at stuff. We either both love it or we hate it, and there have been VERY few instances where we disagree. BUT, on paper, we disagree about EVERYTHING! And then, after we have argued ourselves silly and we actually go LOOK at the stuff we are talking about, both of us agree on it and we realize that we had both been describing the same exact thing, just using different words. Ughhhhhhh. It's really draining.
So this is our latest disagreement~ and this time, we really DO butt heads (LOL No- not butt-heads!): The kitchen cabinetry. DH wants stained wood, and I want white. I LOVE wood, don't get me wrong....BUT we are doing wood floors and darker counter tops and I think it will look like a cave. I think white is timeless and it is inviting and cheerful. He thinks white is sterile and cold. I have no problem with wood anywhere else....just not in the kitchen. Am I crazy to want white? Is is possible to have a "warm" white kitchen? Here are some pics to show you kind of what I'm talking about:
And here is my idea of a compromise: We do white cabinets around the perimeter...and a stained wood island. Kinda like this:
but so far I'm not winning the argument. ACK! I will go nuts in a dark cave. What do I do? Another bit of logic for me is the fact that the kitchen is pretty much the girl's domain. So I should get to pick it out, right? DH has a FABULOUS office right off the front entrance that he gets to do whatever his little heart wants with...shouldn't the kitchen be like MY *office*? (Yes, I will have an office too...well more like a craft room...but it is in the basement for heck's sake! I need something on the main floor!) So tell me what you think and if I am totally loosing my mind.
In ending, I hereby solemnly vow to be better about blogging. I may even surprise ya with another little OliveJuice and Co. give-away soon...... ;) Peace out kids!
