My house is our home, and I love it and all it's imperfections. I hope this message isn't long over due but needless to say the majority of pictures you see here on the blog are rooms and projects that I've spent a lot of time perfecting. Why? Plain and simple… my passion is making things pretty and I truly enjoy styling a newly finished DIY project with things around the house. The result, a pretty picture to share and encourage and inspire my readers. The reality. It's usually destroyed by two energetic (nicest word I could think of) 4 year olds no more than 10 minutes after the jpeg is saved to my desktop.
Who? These angels??? Yup… those angels.
Case and point, the house was clean yesterday. Today is another story.
This photo of the kitchen… taken while the boys were at school. I'd love to tell you it looks like this all the time...
but it doesn't. The sink seems to always be full of dirty dishes and there are groceries still to be put away (I went shopping yesterday but apparently got side tracked).
and remember when I revealed the newly renovated laundry room?
Not so pretty today… is it? After a week straight of summer play dates someone needs to do some laundry.
You'll love this one. My craft closet was in perfect working order.
and 2 years later. Oh me, oh my! I know where everything is - I swear.
And the biggest dirty little secret of them all. I've never shared our "Playroom/Office" on this blog before. No matter how many times I clean this room it usually ends the day looking like this. Even Woody & Buzz are judging me… sometimes I'll walk into this room and Buzz will spontaneously say "This is an intergalactic emergency!!" Yeah, I get it buddy.
Here's another angle of this disaster. Sponge Bob, shut your face! I can feel your googly eyes burning into the back of my head as I type. Jokes on you, dude, I have plans for this room and they don't include you!
