very first home tour!

A couple days ago, AllisonO @ OMyFamily did the cutest little home tour! She invited all her little blog friends to join in on the fun. And I'm always up for fun blogging!

So here we are on a fun blog carnival - where I completed my very first vlog [that's a video blog!]. Mark was a tad busy during the video. We just bought a brand new grill, and he's trying to figure out how to hook up the gas can thingy. So we plan on grilling hamburgers tonight.. That is, if everything's hooked up!

I would've added photos. But.. you've seen pictures of my house before. But now you get my Kentucky accent and live footage of our humble abode! The neat (kind of) news is that we found out we'll be moving around March 2011 and getting a brand new house. A house without bugs. And a house that has a counter in the bathroom. So so so excited!

So - after watching the video, do you think we should use the empty room as a nursery or the storage room? Apparently, our neighbors are noisy at night, and the empty room is right next to them. Which is our only reasoning for making the storage room into the nursery. But I really like the openness and large window in the empty room! Thoughts? Suggestions? Would you paint a nursery knowing that in just a few months, you'd be moving out? Tips and thoughts, please! :)

Oh, and happy news - in the time it took for me to write this blog, Mark finished the grill! So hamburgers it is! With lotsa pickles. No - not a craving - I always love pickles! Now join in on the fun and let's see your home tour!

Once upon a time, @MomNom, @jennandtonica, @emmie_bee,
@heirtoblair, and @ColeEmmett
were talking about home decor on Twitter.
We thought it would be so great to be able to see each other's homes!
A *bunch* of other tweeps joined in, @Alena29 put together a terrific button,
and #twitterhometour (or #twitterhouseparty) was born!
Feel free to join us -
add a link to your home tour post (pictures, video, or both!) below.


  1. kinda scary knowing our stairs make creeky crunky sounds.. Reminds me of the horror movies where the killer is slowly walking up the stairs to come hack the victim up, who is hiding in one of their rooms. the lighting in our house doesnt do justice for the homey feeling that we have in our home.

  2. Cute space! Your little dog looks just like my sister's... Thanks for sharing!

  3. So cute! I love your house! Plus, you're just too cute showing everyone around! And, Piper is adorable! I'll bet she'd get along well with my Penelope! : )

  4. Cute! I loved it! Maybe I should do one once we get to Maryland and have a decent looking place ha! Your accent is cute too! I have the terrible "non-existant" midwest accent.. ew..

    Also, I think for the baby's room some noise might be good for the baby. My Mom always played a radio for us at night or when we napped so we were used to noise so the tiniest thing wouldn't wake us. But if it's a ridiculous bunch of noises like my neighbors seem to create every second then go for the storage room as the baby's room but I love the huge window in the empty room so it is a toughy!
