around the house

I know there are about 300 other things I should be doing. Instead, welcome to my home! Here are some of my favorite things and just some random shots of what goes on here on a day-to-day basis. Does anyone even care? Maybe not, but I enjoyed it! I don't know about you, but I love looking at other people's homes. I am always looking at the background in pics and stuff.

So without further ado...

A cup of coffee I had to warm up 3 times before I finished it. I was going to stop and get a Starbucks on the way home from my dentist appt., but realized I like mine better than Starbucks.

All the shoes Ellie has worn so far today. She is such a girl.

The m&m's we are bribing Ellie with to get her to potty on the potty. She hasn't gotten many and I have had my fair share.

My favorite nook in the house.

The teacups I recently brought home from Mom and Dads. Recognize these Paige?

Ellie and her animals. We do this every single day.

A pile of folded laundry that needs put away.

A sweet little angel that Linda Bean got me for Christmas. I smile every time I see her.

Wubbzy running down the street. It's so bright and cheery here today. Not.

Reading Francis. A current fave. Notice the panties!

A few more of Ellie's books. For some reason, I never feel guilty buying her another book, but oddly enough, most of these were gifts or mine when I was growing up.

The best pic Chris and I have ever taken together. I am 8+ months pregnant in this pic. Isn't he hot!

A picnic for puppy and Dora.

The wedding ring my husband forgot to put on today. In his defense, it is too big, especially when it is so freaking cold.

The shirt I am about 95% sure I am wearing to Mom's night out tonight. Chinese. YES!

My mom and dad at their prom. Chris and I at our prom.

Some of my mothers favorite books. I have only read "To Kill a Mockingbird" & "Jane Eyre." I have my work cut out for me. What you don't see is another whole shelf with lots more. Those are mostly the work of Gene Stratton Porter.

A sweet little bird I got at Target for $3. Score!

The world's best box of chocolates. I get a box every Christmas and try and make it last as long as possible.

A closet that desperately needs organized.

So there you have it. My house today. This was fun! I might do round 2 the next time blog fodder is scarce. Thanks for looking!

The top left teacup (left while looking at the picture) was always my fav. I think it has violets on it. And I think I might be famous...I've made the last two blogs. Do you miss me or are you seeing if I really read??? Happy pottying!
