I need your opinion!

Hello lovlies! Well my first week in my new job went really well and I think I'm going to end up liking it. It's a really big change from what I was doing before but like I said I think it'll be good for me in the long run!
Okay so on to the more important thing! Here are some pics of our new soon to be kitchen - mud /utility room - and half bath downstairs!!!
What I'd like your opinion on is paint colors!
As you can see from the pictures these people had a serious thing for PINK now I like pink but not enough to have almost every wall in my house pink!
Pink wall in the kithen and you can see the pink mud room and the pink bathroom in this piture too!
There's tile work under the cabinets which will stay (for now)
I love the working surface above! The laminate flooring is going to be replaced with laminate tile, it's really nice looking.
So I was thinking maybe like a brown or some kind of neutral color????
What do ya'll think?
We like the chandelier that's hanging and I was thinking that a brown would go with it, definitely more than pink.....and yes we get to keep the flat screen that hanging on the wall!!! I'll be watching Barefoot Contessa and Paula Deen all the time!! : )
Here are the pics of the utility / mud room, I was thinking if we do the kithen in some browns then I could do this little room in something fun like green or blue or something????

I'm at a total loss for what color the bathroom should be? Maybe a dark gray? Red? I don't know.

And yes even the living room has a pink wall! I'm telling you they are obsessed with PINK!

I was thinking some neutral colors in here too??

Here's the dining and look it's not pink!! I actually like the color that's in here, it's kind of a green/blue color.....

So there's a little mini tour of our soon to be home! We're closing in 4 weeks! aaaahhh!

So the immediate to do list is:

** clean out fridge

** clean out bathroom

**clean out Kitchen

Once I do that then I'll start packing up stuff that I know we won't use until after we get in the house.....

Does anyone have any good suggestions on packing and cleaning???

Hope ya'll are having a great weekend! :)

Bad Blogger, Lazy Sunday, and Some big news!

I've been a horrible blogger lately, but I promise I have good reasons! I don't think I've mentioned yet that I'm starting a new job in a week! It's a good thing, but work has been super crazy and I know once I start my new job it's going to be even crazier! But it's a step in the right direction, so bring on the craziness!
I've had a great lazy Sunday, I'm watching the Notebook on oxygen right now, I love it!!! I just watched the part with the swans! So pretty and it's such a good movie but I'll cry like a baby at the end!!!

I just did some laundry and went to the store yesterday and got the yummiest smelling Mulled Cider candle!!! It's smells so much like fall!
I hate that summer is ending but fall is my second favorite season and can't wait till it's here!
Hubby and I went to Baltimore a couple weekends ago and saw some European soccer teams play, it was a good time!

Then we went to the Baltimore Aquarium which was fun!
And finally the big news!!!
Well technically we're in the inspection stage, but it's going well and if everything keeps going well we'll be closing at the end of September!! I can't wait, I'm so so excited and the house is just fabulous!!! YAY!
So lots going on in this downtown southern household in the next couple of months!! But they are all great things!
Hope ya'll have a wonderfully lazy Sunday too!
I promise to update more : )
