Kitchen paint

Ok, I have been wanting to have an accent wall in my kitchen and I want it to be burgundy to bring that color in from our living room into the kitchen and I cannot get Shawn to agree with it so I need everyones opinion.

When you walk in our house you go straight into the living room-

and then our kitchen is off to the right so the two rooms flow together.

We have a long bar area that divides the rooms. I painted the living room the color- burnt almond and right now the kitchen is just the plain light cream color that the whole house was when we moved in. My idea is to bring the burnt almond into the kitchen (the two side walls) and then have the main wall (the one with all the cabinets, stove, fridge) an accent color- burgundy and Shawn thinks it should stay just the same plain cream color. Please vote on the poll and I won't be upset if you vote for Shawn!

ode to 80's sitcoms (some 70s also)

As I was adding new songs onto my playlist I thought I would find theme songs to old TV sitcoms that I enjoyed. As a child I always would sing to them along with all the commercials too. It was so fun to listen to these old theme songs from tv shows I loved as a child, they bring back so many memories! It makes me so happy to hear songs I love. Somedays I just love to get out my karoake and sing until my throat hurts. I love to sing even though I am not very good.

Ok, here is my tribute to some of my favorite TV sitcoms back when I was a kid. Family Ties (alltime favorite!!!) I loved Alex P. Keaton in Family Ties and his sister Mallory too- in fact if I had two more kids my boy would be Keaton and my girl would be Mallory.


Growing Pains- I think I liked the show so much because of Kirk Cameron. Wasn't he the cutest! Everybody was in love with him back then and we all had our teeny bopper magazine pin ups hanging in our rooms.

And my last tribute to classic TV- Welcome Back Kotter. What a great show! I was to young to be in love with John Travolta but I thought Arnold Horshack was the funniest character on the show. He was the nerd who always snorted when he laughed. I would always call my brother horshack as an insult.
