In true Monday fashion, things couldn't just go as planned and before I knew it the internet at our house was out (since yesterday morning, grrrr) and has just now been restored to it's glorious working order.


And of course this is one of the few days that I actually had something *IMPORTANT* to share!

And I figured I should post some of these pictures before the reveal because I think a few peeps thought that because I was posting all about green, that green has something to do with it.

And there you have it, something that makes me smile...with pink (c;



So what did you think?

I still can't decide if I want to switch out the knobs or not...

Happy Monday, pink lovin' peeps!
