The dreaded cold is here. Frozen flowers, snow, and sweaters. And for the next 9 months, I will be anticipating and longing for summer heat.
We decided to paint an accent wall in our kitchen a burnt orange color. As we started painting, Ryan talked me into painting the entire kitchen this color. I am still deciding if I like it...maybe once we hang pictures it won't look like a giant ripe pumpkin. At least we are festive right?
I also finally got a much needed haircut. The last one that I had was one week before Addison was born, in an attempt to make myself feel cute instead of round and uncomfortable. Seven months later, my hair was looking more than a little bit rough. I didn't take a "before" picture, but here is the after:To all of you Canadian readers, Happy Thanksgiving! We are headed up to the "Great White North" this Friday! My stomach is excited to be having two Thanksgivings this year. My hip/rear area isn't as excited.

I love both the kitchen and your hair! :) We have a wall that is that color and I could probably go for a few more of the same color! It is definitely one of my favorites. I love fall colors. You guys did a great job. Painting is a big job, but so worth it when it's done!

I love the paint color in you kitchen---we just painted our kitchen a burnt orange color & even without cabinets etc it looks awesome. I'm all over orange though---love the color.
Your hair looks hot too! YOU look great! Such a cute mom :-)
I love fall---too bad it doesn't last long enough. We may have skipped it here & hit winter up early instead ---grrr!
Have fun & give that little sweetheart a hug for me.
