It took me a while to decide whether or not to move and August was the month. I've been looking online at houses for the last couple months dreaming of living on a quieter street and in a nicer house. I'm tired of living next to the hospital and I feel as though my house is just an extra parking space for them because there is always people parking on my boulevard. A couple of weeks ago, a really huge truck was parking on my boulevard because they were working at the hospital. They obviously didn't see the sign down the street (no parking for trucks) and I had to call and have them move their vehicle. That kind of stuff gives me anxiety and makes my blood pressure skyrocket and so does having to call the police for neighbors being loud or dogs being loose. I'd rather not have to deal with that anymore.
Last month I did some work in my kitchen. I updated the cabinets and put in brand new laminate flooring. That really helped brighten up my kitchen. The top is an offwhite color called Ship Lap. It's a color from Joanna Gaines paint collection. She has such beautiful paint colors. The bottom color is a light blueish grey called Dark Moon. I just loved how it turned out and hopefully remolding the kitchen helps me sell my house. My living room faces the kitchen and it's not an open concept home like everyone wants these days, but when I look into my kitchen now I just love the colors I chose and I'm obsessed with it.
Sorry about the messy kitchen, but this is what my kitchen looks like after lunch is made. 🙂 I actually used to hate the counter top because it didn't go with the current colors in the kitchen, but now that I've made these updates everything in the kitchen goes together.
The last weekend in August, I got to watch my Aunts 3 big dogs. It was a lot of work because I had my two dogs there and sometimes my Mom's dog Charlie was there. 6 dogs total. Yikes. I decided if I wasn't a food blogger, that I'd be a dog watcher. I just love dogs and I think going over to people's homes and letting their dogs out would be a really awesome job.
