Take 2



I must apologize in advance for clogging your Google readers. I get so overwhelmed when I have 100s of new posts to read. Much like I do when my DVR has American Idol, Fringe, House, and LOST all just waiting to be watched.

Anyways, Kelly at Kelly's Korner is hosting a bloggy tour of homes, if you will. This week she's inviting us to share our living rooms. And since so many of you have never been to my house, I thought you might like to see where all the craziness goes down.

Although these pictures are somewhat misleading since the room is, you know, CLEAN and all. It's not usually like that.

That said, here's our living room.

And our lovely family photo from when Jayci was just born, courtesy of the talented
The view from our living room to the kitchen. (Please note that this picture betrays a little bit of the underlying mess which usually dominates my home. I like to think of it as "well-lived-in." That's important right? Just tell me it is, I dont care what you actually think. I mean, of course I do care . . . unless you think your house should be clean. Then I don't want to hear it.)

Happy house touring everyone! :-) thanks for stopping by - it's always so nice to have you! If I knew how to bake, I'd offer you a cookie or something. But I'm not a baker. And unfortunately, I already ate all the Samoas. But feel free to bring me more. I never turn down a Samoa.

  2. I love the colors! You are a good decorator. I would never participate on the tour of homes for I have nothing to look at other than carpet and walls.

    I think I need to accept that we live here and hang stuff on the walls.

  31. Becca? Your house is beautiful. And infinitely neater than mine and many others, so please stop fretting about that. But Becca? Your beautiful house cannot hold a candle to your beautiful heart, and that's saying a lot. Truly. Every time I come here? I cry. Mostly, it's selfish. I'm almost twice your age in years.. and yet I'm nowhere near you in wisdom. Not even close. So, I just want to say that while I love your lovely home, I love your heart forty two times as much. Maybe not exactly forty two.. .probably more like a hundred and three. But you get my drift....

  33. I love, love, love your living room rug. I am drooling over it! Oh my gosh! I want that. I want two new rugs for the living room and the dining room. And runners for the front door! Ummmmmmmmm, now I have to go ask Gary. Where did you get it? Oh, it is just so fantastic. I am bookmarking this page! : )

    And the rest of your house is lovely too. The kiss picture melts me. Absolutely melts me. Awwwwwwwww.
