Real Life Tag

I was tagged to take pictures of my home with no cleaning, clearing, wiping, changing etc. allowed... Here goes:
#1 Laundry Room. I actually love my laundry room. It's right off the kitchen, so it is great to have room for trash and recycling. I also love the shelf/bar above the machines. I can hang things to dry and my bags for recycling.#2 Favorite Room. Our living room is where it all happens: family prayer, dancing, wrestling, and cuddling. We can see groundhogs, bunnies, squirrels, blue birds, cardinals, and butterflies from the french doors.I LOVE my rocking chair and our couch is comfy (but not as great as our old couch we sold in CA). This is 1 of only 2 areas that we hung anything on the walls. I feel so temporary in this house even though we will live here for 2 years.#3 What are the kids doing? Lucy was sleeping when I was taking pictures. She likes to cover her face with blankets while she is trying to fall asleep. That's usually how I can tell she is really tired. Leland was helping me take the pictures.#4 Favorite pair of shoes. My Old Navy flip flops I have had longer than my husband, for about 5 or 6 years. I wear them almost every day, when I lived in CA it was every day (except Sunday). I already have my tan line back on my feet. #5 Toilet. While I was looking at the blog where I was tagged, Leland starts to giggle and says "Mommy, someone took a picture of a potty. That's so silly!" I replied "It is silly. Do you want to take a picture of your potty?" So, of course, we did. #6 The sink. I really like to have an empty sink. I have an awesome husband that helps load and unload the dishes a lot, so that makes it easier. On the window sill is my cilantro that I had to bring inside because it is so stinkin' hot. I hope I can keep it alive.#7 Fridge. I chose an inside picture. The white canister in the freezer.....homemade strawberry ice cream. Yum!#8 Self Protrait. Me and my picture taking helper Leland.#9 My closet. Our closet is very small. I also have Rubbermaid tubs in the corner of my room that act as part of my closet.#10 Dream Vacation: Ireland. I've actually gone twice before, but would love to go back with Chuck.
I tag...1st Daughter, Kira, and Shana.


  1. #1- Happy Birthday to Chuck!
    #2- We have the very same couch! I swear you have seen ours..but I guess it has been a long time so you wouldn't remember.Funny though
    #3 I lost the battery charger to my camera recently, so my camera is not ready and able to take pictures of my somewhat cluttered house. So even though I will get around to your tag, I can't promise that I won't do some quick straightening up first.
    #4 When I think of you I always picture you in that orange grand cayman shirt and the Old Navy flipflops. Adorable
    #5 I miss you guys!

  2. I love this idea! So cute! Well, as soon as I figure out how to upload the pictures from my camera onto our laptop I will get posting. So, check back in a couple of days. Thanks!

  3. Love it!! Glad Leland liked my silly potty.... It was fun to see a gilmpse into your home and life. Love you guys!
