No we didn't go anywhere, but...

...we did get some things DONE (around the house that is)!
I mentioned a couple posts ago that we've been weeding things out, in effort to simplify our house and hopefully, our lives too.
So we did just that.  This time we tackled pretty much every cabinet and drawer in our kitchen and cleaned off the counter tops.  It looks amazing and somewhat like we just moved in. I'm still not sure what to think of it (remember, I like a little clutter/decoration going on.)

We also decided to update and paint our spare room.  
It used to be a bright blue color, with clouds painted on the ceiling.
the only picture I could find to show you the colors...

Several people used to call it the nursery, which would be fine if we had a kid, or at least planned on it.
But we don't.
Six years after painting it and never really loving it, we decided it was time to make some changes.  
We painted three walls an awesome, calming green color and the other an almond/cream color. We also painted over the clouds on the ceiling with an off-white.
Then we bought a new light and installed it.
It looks 1,000 times better already!
No pictures have been taken because we aren't done with the room yet!
(I don't want to ruin the surprise!)
We also plan on laying down matching laminate flooring.
So when all of that is finished I'll let you know!
