Show & Tell

So I'm a little late to the game- obviously the was supposed to get posted on Monday. But you know what, Becky still has that link-up open so you bet I'm joining in ;) Plus I'm OBSESSED with houses. Like, weirdly obsessed. Like, as a child (I'm talking under the age of 9 here) I used to ask my mom to buy me home plan books whenever I saw them. I'd spend HOURS looking at blueprints. Crazy child!

We moved into our house in April 2011, and I really AM happy with it.... hubby, if you're reading this, I swear I mean it. I may gripe about a lot of things about it, but none of them are major things. It has been the perfect first house for us. It's just us two, so although I'd loooove to have a lot more space, it really isn't necessary just yet. But trust me, I've got a wish list going in my mind for that next house ;)

If you were searching for a home now, tell me what would be on your "MUST" list.
1. Big yard/not as close to the neighbors. I'd love to find that sweet spot of country, that isn't too far from the city.

2. Just bigger in general: A full basement (we have a crawspace in a tri-level), a large kitchen with lots of cabinet storage, and preferably 4 bedrooms (we have 3 little ones now). Oh, and MEGA-CLOSETS. Thanks ;)

Show me your favorite room in a home {either your home, or any home, i.e. kitchen}.

Dream kitchen & office (minus that wallpaper). I'd love a HUGE gourmet kitchen that was separate from the dining area and an office that invited me in to work and be creative :)

If you could have any room redone, tell me which one would it be and what would you like done?
I would probably say our kitchen. It's small, but definitely still could benefit from some upgrades. Refinish the wood floors, new granite counter tops, paint the cabinets (or get new ones!) and brand spankin' new appliances. Maybe some fun lighting to add interest to the small space. Not too much to ask, right?!

Tell me where your favorite stores are to shop for home decor.
I love Target and Garden Ridge, but find lots of great stuff on Amazon too!

Show me your dream home
I'll take any of these, currently for sale in my "dream neighborhood"


  1. Can I be your neighbor in your dream neighborhood?? I adore all those houses and that office! Oh, if only houses weren't so damn expensive...

  2. This looks like a fun link up!

    I love the porch in the third picture in your dream houses! :) Beautiful! And the windows in your dream office are amazing! I would love to have that many in a room - so much natural light !

  6. I want a big wrap around porch, floor to ceiling bookshelves, a spacious kitchen, a master bathroom with a full bath and all of this has to be within walking distance of a park and a library! Haha. Dream houses are always fun. Love your house picks!

  7. I used to buy house plan books to look at too! I also had a computer program that you designed houses on. I was a little obsessed as well. :)

  8. John's dad lives in my dream neighborhood. His house is amazing. I always pretend it's mine when we are visiting!
