Walking Tour

Wanna take a tour of my house? Click below.

There are rules associated with the tour:

1) no judging me for the lack of tidiness of my home. I have 2 small children. My house it what is is most of the time. I'd call today's tour an 80% day. My desk always needs help and I'm looking for a long term solution for that.

2) you must agree that my daughter is adorable.

3) you must now stop asking for picture of my house. Do you know how hard it is to get a decent picture of a whole room with nothing but a point and shoot digital camera?

Anyway... its longish... almost 7 minutes. So only watch if you care.

OH! And yes, the walls in the halls, stairwell, living and dining rooms are pink. We'll be painting this summer. I'm thinking a soft, buttery yellow would be much preferable to the pink without clashing with the carpet (which is wine colored... not my favorite, but its in good condition so we have not intention to repace it).

Ten Reasons I Love My House

10) Its 4 bedrooms. That means theres space for kids to be in their own rooms, space for my to have a sewing & crafty room...

9) Its in a great, friendly, low-traffic neighborhood where we can take walks, talk to the neighbors and play with the other kids.

8) A yard for my kids to play in. By themselves, if I want. That we don't have share with anyone else.

7) STORAGE!!! Not only does this place have an whole unfinished basement (with AWESOME food-storage shelving), but it has AWESOME, HUGE closets. With lots of space for clothes, and linens, and seasonal items... *sigh* =)

6) A fireplace. Sounds nice for our long, cold, VERY snowy winters.

5) Appliances that work the way they're supposed to (we have quite the history with not-so-great appliances in our past rentals)

4) Master bath. Granted... we're not exactly using it yet, but we will... once we get the shower doors moved out of the kids' bathroom. Cause who wants to bathe kids in a tub with doors on it?

3) Nice big kitchen with beautiful corian countertops. Good cabinet space, good counter space.

2) A playroom! Yes... a WHOLE ROOM just for the kids' toys for them to make what-so-ever messes they may, without making a mess of my whole house. Bliss!

1) Its mine... and if I decide that theres something I don't love about it, I can change it (or, at least tell Brian to change it).

Pictures to come soon(ish), I promise. Just let me find a few minutes (or a miracle) of neat and tidy rooms...
