They're on their way :)

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know that a few posts back, I showed my entire house in boxes...Twice as much as should have been crammed into our little town home.
We still don't have our things although they have been sending us updates as they move toward this end of the world.

Update, stop the presses: The movers are on their way-finally. I am ready and waiting here as I blog. Some things I can't wait to take out of the boxes and unpack-like ~ my bed, clothes and my sewing supplies, tho' at this point I'm not sure where it's all going to go :O
Some things I think I might keep packed for awhile. Unexpected issues have made us have to reconsider where we're going to be putting all of our things. We had great plans to put most of the kids toys, sewing room, holiday decor, 90% of the house~ into the basement's finished side. It won't be happening for awhile. Oh, the importance of a working sump pump. We never had one before and weren't even sure what one was-til now :(

We're going to be painting the family room this week too. I should try and remember to take before and after pictures. I am a great procrastinator when it comes to choosing paint colors. Maybe procrastinator isn't the word I'm looking for, I just want to make sure it's the right color, perfectionist? My husband wanted me to choose colors for rooms from more than 2,000 miles away. He didn't understand the importance (to me) of lighting and color. I studied interior decorating in France and wasn't going to choose paint that way.
Silver Sage from Restoration Hardware is one of my all-time fail proof faves and I think we're going with that (again) in the family room. I've loved the color since before they even offered paint for it. I used to take paint chips to the store trying to find one that matched. Now they have their own. Yippee.

Have a happy creative day. I'll be here unpacking :)

I LOVE Silver Sage! It's in our family room and if it were up to me I'd paint our entire downstairs this color!
