So my friend Trisha had the idea today to do an old school blog hop where we all posted five things you would learn about each of us simply by walking through our homes. I decided to jump in and had fun taking pictures of the things that I get to see every day – but probably take for granted. Here is my list – hope you enjoy!
There is no way you are getting in or near my house without learning about Indi – the Resident Guard Dog – and my youngest “doghter.” Dont let her 3.8lbs size fool you – her bark in pretty intense. In fact, pair the barking with the hardwood floors and you see her own version of Moon Walking. Indi is very much my baby and has been through a lot with me in her short 6 years.
When you enter our home and the Guard Dog finally calms down, you will become blatantly aware who really is in charge here. Unless you have a bead or something they can bat around for hours on the 2300 square feet of hardwood floors… We rescued these babies back in March and they have brought more joy and laughter into our home than we ever thought possible.
Mike is totally obsessed with sports. I mean obsessed. He can rattle of statistics, tell you where most of the NFL grew up, and don’t even attempt to play the man in Fantasy Football. I love the head game of most sports so I have enjoyed learning a lot over the last three and a half years. Our home is a nice mix between elegant statues… and the NFL. We like it that way.
I easily match Mike’s sports obsession with my candle/warmer obsession. Mike claims I can smell the food on tv – so I constantly want something smelling fantastic going in the house at all times. Each warmer has its own scented stuff in it so I normally have only one or two going at once – but every time someone walks in they say how great it smells in my house. I think so too.
Honestly, nothing stresses me out more than clutter in my house. I dont know if I would call myself a “minimalist” but I am not an “I might need this some day” kind of gal. I love throwing things away. The girls know if they leave toys in the Living Room, they will be in the trash by morning. I just cant stand to not have everything put away. (Rollie’s tennis ball is on the list if he doesnt move it by morning…)
That’s pretty much it. Thanks for taking a “walk” around my house with me. What would I learn about you if I walked through your house?
