My super wonderful husband started painting our kitchen cabinets white over the weekend! While I really miss our old kitchen's brand new white cabinets, I know this will be a huge improvement for our outdated space. We're also planning on butcher block counters and a farmhouse sink from IKEA, and some open shelving on either side of the window/sink.

Here are some images that are inspiring me for our renovation...

Love the green tile...


Love this island...

A girl can dream, right?

{every new beginning}

I had fun creating this digital page - haven't done any scrapbooking in awhile, so even doing a digital page felt really good.

And you can vote for me to win some fun stuff here! (It only takes a second and I'll love you forever! ;)

{squirrel love}

It is no secret that I love squirrels.

I love their bushy tails, their chubby cheeks, the way they chase each other up trees. I think you either love squirrels or hate them, and I'm definitely in the love camp.

And today is National Squirrel Appreciation Day!

So grab a salty snack, head outside, and find a squirrel to spoil! (from personal experience I know that they looove french fries). And maybe even pick yourself up a little something from lovesquirrels - in honor of my favorite furry critters.

{long weekend}

It was a three day weekend for me (woohoo!) and boy was it a good one!

Saturday I was honored to be invited to my friend Erin's baby shower, AND get to see her house, which is literally my dream home. I'm still drooling over her kitchen. Here we are in front of her newly finished fireplace - she and her husband refurbished an antique mantel and it is just beautiful.

Mandy and Erin by you.

She is such sweet and caring person, and is going to be such a wonderful mother. Check out her blog if you haven't before...it is lovely and she has quite a way with words. She never fails to inspire me.

On Sunday, we enjoyed a lazy day at home with the boys, and a nice family dinner with Dan's mom, sister and my favorite little man...

Its a rough life! by you.
(chilling in one of the boys' beanbag chairs...so cute!)

Since I had work off yesterday, and we have the nice gas-saving Prius, we decided to take another trip out of town to one of our favorite shopping areas. We hadn't been there since before I was pregnant, so it was fun to head back to one of our old haunts.

I snapped this pic of Benny and I before we left...his new sweater is one of my favorites...

Momma and Benny by you.

Nothing too special about this trip...just a nice mall, our favorite chinese from the food court, a Target trip that produced some awesome deals...

Target deals by you.

(All this for $19! - the hoodies were $1.75 each! And we snagged a matching shawl collar sweater for Landon for just $3.24.)

And the best part of the day for the boys was letting them run free (well, free but very well guarded) in DSW. I had no idea how entertaining those little shoe-trying-on-benches could be! The mirrors on the side are perfect for toddlers. :)

The boys behaved so well and we felt like "us" again, after vising our favorite shopping spots that we had missed.

When we got home, the boys continued to entertain us...

I know I say this a lot, but boy is this a fun age!

Hope everyone had an equally great weekend!
