All A(chalk)board

Given that my summer list didn’t get too far, I’m going to stop short of making a fall list because, in all honesty, my brain is still functioning in can’t-think-past-tomorrow-mode. And I know that once fall comes so do holidays, and in reality life doesn’t slow down but rather does the complete opposite. That being said, I’m still operating under the false pretense that after this weekend, which marks the end of wedding year season for us, life is going to slow down a bit. I’ll finally have time to catch up on laundry (ha!), paint the trim around our front door before the HOA decides to kick us out of the neighborhood, and do some fun DIY home and holiday projects (pinterest is life, the rest is just details) such as…dundadaDUNNNN (that’s my version of trumpets)…paint a chalkboard wall!

I kind of think chalkboard walls are the coolest and I’ve determined that our humble kitchen would be exponentially more fabulous with one. So mark my words – if I get nothing else accomplished by the end of 2011, our kitchen WILL get a chalkboard wall. Now about getting Joey on board with the idea…

  1. You always have great ideas. Hope you get to slow down a little from all you do. Made me think of the Simon and Garfunkel song “Move too Fast”. Yeh, I think it was from the 60’s.

    Slow down, you move too fast.
    You got to make the morning last.
    Just kicking down the cobble stones.
    Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy.

    Hello lamppost,
    What cha knowing?
    I’ve come to watch your flowers growing.
    Ain’t cha got no rhymes for me?
    Doot-in’ doo-doo,
    Feelin’ groovy.

    Got no deeds to do,
    No promises to keep.
    I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
    Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
    Life, I love you,
    All is groovy.

  2. Did you really put all the lyrics to the song in here? You’re too much, Mom. Thank you both for your support of the chalkboard wall! Joey wasn’t really feeling it, but I’ll find a way to make it happen 😉

  4. So… I just finished going through all our mail from being gone for 2 weeks AND guess what I came across and thought of you?! Check out the most recent Pottery Barn magazine. (which BTW has fabulous Holiday stuff) Since Joey isn’t completely on board with an entire chalkboard wall… maybe he will be up for a chalkboard wall thats under your stool breakfast bar area in your kitchen. (hopefully I explained that right and didn’t leave you going huh..??) 🙂 I’ll talk to you about it and show you a pic. hopefully when I see you soon! xo
