I thought I had this very cleverly worked out so that each post would align in a makes-sense sequence but I now have no idea what I'm doing and so, I'm sorry. Just make the best of it.
Blogger (YES, YOU BLOGGER) is also formatting my pictures crazzzzy so I'm sorry if things look super wonky on whatever device you are using to see this. Just imagine it all centered, etc. -_-
Ok, funny thing. Today I was in my bathroom standing in a sea of beads that Pete had spilled on the floor thinking to myself "Oh my goodness, I have to keep this clean for the blog tour!!!!" and then I realized I already took all the photos and NO ONE CAN SEE THIS. I almost lolled right at myself. Get a life, B.
Ok! Whereeeee where we? Oh yes! Kitchen-end of the house. Here we be. The lawn is to the left.
(Walking up the brick...) This is the door leading to the kitchen. It's not technically the "main" door but we use it as such... I mean, wreath... hello.
Directly across from the kitchen door is a super pretty little succulent patio. Here are various views, all of which are lovely, none of which I am responsible for (God bless you, previous owners) (Yes, that's a Moby Wrap in the tree. My kids use it as a swing. #blessed)
Ok, beyond those gates is the official front door... compound lyfe.
(for past and future reference- kitchen to the right, boy's room to the left beyond this gate)
***PLEASE LOOK AT NOTHING BUT THIS WEIRD LATEX GLOVE SITUATION***
Ok, this is the most special part. At the end of the driveway (sort of where Clem is facing in this ^ photo) is just hillside, but it's sort of the first thing you see when you come up the driveway. This statue of Our Lady was the first thing I saw when we first saw the house, over a year and a half ago, when I pregnant with Joe. The owners weren't Catholic but they loved her and said they felt like she was just supposed to be there so they never moved it. She is sunken into the ground pretty far and has been there for a long time, it seems. I just love it so much. When we weren't sure if we would get the house (which was months and months of back and forth) I always took consolation in the fact that my Mom was there already.
~it's a driveway~
Ok, now into the kitchen! This whole kitchen is basically a praise & worship song so let's just get into it.
ANNNNND the boys room and baby cave, which sit side by side. (made from the chopped up laundry space sort of behind the garage and just opposite the kitchen SEE MAP). Pete and John are in here now but eventually... you know, everyone will be.
I didn't even sweep the floors for these shots because at this point I was sweaaaaatttting taking 300 photos pics of a clean house. Ur wlcm. Bye! Tomorrow I'll finish and we can all move on.
