Which makes me think... how much would I love to live in a world where I didn't feel the pull to blog about diabetes.... because D was not a part of our lives. A lot. But - that's not my world.
So.... I decided to give you all little tour of our house! I was so inspired by Reyna's Welcome to Mars post that I thought it would be fun! I loved seeing her digs so I thought you might like to see ours, too!
In honor of "keeping it real" (another idea inspired by Wendy's post: A REAL Deep Post About Perfection, which is something I struggle with a lot. The need to be perfect. Not keeping it real. If it got more real here.... well, I don't know what!) I'm posting real life pics. There's dust. There's mess. We're sick and I didn't feel like cleaning. It is what it is! Enjoy!
This is our family room.... and that fireplace is what sold me on the house!
Another view of the family room (even labeled in case you forget where you are). Lots of windows!
Love this sign. It's on the wall in our entryway.
The kitchen. You see the downstairs bath (home of previously mentioned water fight). Lots of junk of the counter. D bag on the table. Meds for illnesses out. Mail laying around....
The Dining Room. Or Command Central for our Walk T-shirt organization and our Dimes campaign. Still junky as it has not been cleaned up. Bugging me... but no time... will wait until weekend to clean it up.
The office. Where the blogging magic happens! I just recently decorated... can you see the cool cheetah print chairs to the right?? LOVE them!
The Playroom. A big 'ol mess. This is what happens when you say, "Please play nicely while Mommy lays down because she does not feel well." Every container in the room was dumped and loaded into bags and purses. *sigh* The artwork on the wall is a "Sweetpea Original" - painted by her. The words say, "Such a big miracle in such a little girl."
Sweetpea's room. I painted the fairies and the flowers on the wall. I think it's cool because the room has a vaulted ceiling so they are really tall! You can see some evidence of D living here... but since I'm not supposed to talk about it, I won't point it out.
LOVE this! This is on the wall at the top of the stairs.
This is looking down the hall upstairs. The bathroom is to the left. The room with the pink flowers is... Sweetpea's! You guessed it! The master is the other doorway you see. You can't see it but the playroom is to the right of the master. I was standing at the top of the stairs. There is another bedroom behind me and the it's also open to the family room below. Very handy for throwing things downstairs!
Hope you enjoyed the tour! There's a few things I left out but they're just boring. You're not missing anything!
We LOVE our house! It's just a house and we know that. But we really like it here! We moved in when Sweetpea was about 18 months. And we're really happy here! The pool is across the street. We like the neighborhood. We like the location. We like being close to work (well, my work anyway) and church.
Home is a great place to be! Thanks for stopping by!
