Okay, okay....


No...I haven't forgotten about my little blog! (Although, I certainly have my moments!) Hopefully I can get something posted here within these next couple of weeks.

I do have some some piece of news to share, though. Our family is moving! We came across another rental located out in the country about 25 minutes from our current residence. We will not have actual possession until May 1st, but we have already begun the task of packing. (Fun-fun!)

The living room carpet has been somewhat singed, so the owner has agreed to replace that before we move in, as well as cleaning up the house.

One of the many nice features about our new home is that, even though it's a rental, we have been allowed to paint it any color we want! Nothing like personalizing your space, right? Right now I'm trying to figure out what color I will choose for my bedroom. It's a toss between brown or red! Any suggestions? The two main colors which I currently have in my room are reds & golds. But, I also have some black tables/decor and also dark, colored wood.

Stay tuned!!

WOW!
Sounds like it would be a very nice house!
I'd go with a red. (I don't really care for really dark rooms like black) But I would sggest maybe every other wall, like Red,Black,REd,Black... I don' know just a idea!

Ooh! Neat. If you like moving, that is! :) I`m sure it must be exciting. That`s pretty big news.
Your room sounds like it`s going to be so nice.
Black tables/decor and dark toned wood, brown and red= Italian style for me! (There is a purple/green/grapes/cheese style Italian style which I also love, but there`s also the red/brown/black look!) Where you considering brown or red for the walls? I would do brown...Perhaps like the Summers`living room! (Which I love! THe technique they used is neat too!)
Happy decorating and moving! (or moving, and decorating!)

Oh fun! I vote for mostly red...a deep, rich red! :) You could even do 3 walls red, and 1 wall brown. I've seen that before, and it's really neat! Just a thought! Will be prayin' the move goes well! Love and hugs to you!

Thank you girls for the suggestions!! I'm still deciding...I'll definitely let you know what I pick!

I'd pick red, too.

As far as the font on my blog. I got it from thecutestblogontheblock. Go to *blog secrets* --> *how to change the font on your blog* --> then pick a code and imbed under the html/java script screen on your blog's dashboard. There's full instructions at thecutestblogontheblock, too.

Hey Lacey!

I changed my blog address. Just wanted you to know so that you can stay up with me over at the new location.

AND I didn't answer your question about the birds' nests. It's actually chow mein noodles + peanut butter + chocolate chips. Very, very easy recipe.

I'm very excited about the colors for your new room, Lacey! If you need any help with anything - packing, moving, cleaning, painting, decorating - just let me know. I'd love to help! :)
