[color kreyv]: Pink

According to Stella, yesterday was the best day ever. She started preschool (I cried, she didn't.); I bought her a kids' meal from Chick-Fil-A, and the toy was, apparently, the coolest thing ever; she got to visit Daddy at the clinic; and she got to go to the dentist, which she loves. I have to agree with Stella and say that yesterday was, indeed, pretty awesome. I had a cookies and cream shake to help drown my sorrows from the preschool drop-off, and I also got to take a nap. It wasn't a long one, but it was a nap. Best. Day. Ever.

TV's and Fireplaces. And Husbands with Opinions.

So, the hubs and I have been discussing TVs and fireplaces lately. It's actually not my first choice to have the TV over the fireplace, but that's kind of where a lot of floor plans make you put it, and I'm fine with that. The debate is all about the size. Obviously, the TV most definitely cannot be as wide as the fireplace. (Ummm, hello, right?) I am really insisting on at least 10-12 inches on each side. Of course, Hubs disagrees, because, well, apparently the size of your TV is directly associated with the level of manliness you possess. I mean, don't get me wrong. I want to see the real housewives on a big screen just as much as the next person, but I've never been one to put function in front of aesthetics. Sigh. Here I go having to compromise again...which means we're going to need a larger fireplace.

[color kreyv]: Emerald Green

How absolutely gorgeous is emerald green? I love it. It is so bold, refreshing, and sophisticated. I think I have pinned the first image at least three times. I want those chairs for my own dining room table. I'm pretty sure that if I had those chairs, all I'd need is a crown--and I'm really not opposed to that.

Bold Walls | Kids' Rooms

Okay, so how cute are these kids' rooms? I love the bold walls done with just paint and wall decals. This is a great way to go to make a big statement. And, the best part: it's cheaper than large art pieces. The other best part? It can be removed and/or painted over if you're like me and change your mind every other day you change your mind.
