Welcome to My Crib

Kelly is hosting "Show us where you live Friday - Living Rooms!" I didn't do the Kitchen tour last week. But go check it out - what fun to see everyone's great homes and get decorating ideas.

Here is our main living room... I know I have animals on the walls. Remember, I'm married to Grizzly Adams. This is the view from the loft.

Our kitchen and living room is open together which was what we wanted when we were looking for a home. Yes, that is a fish on the far wall. I have 3 boys, cut me some slack.

This is the view when coming in the front door.

and looking from the corner of the living room - those stairs go up to the loft, my scrapbooking room. No boys allowed!

This is the living area in our basement, where the boys hang out. We were able to buy the pool table for a LOW price when we moved in. I think the owners didn't want to mess with moving it.

That's pretty much it - thanks for stopping by!!! Have a blessed weekend!

My Loves in April

1. Heath hit his first home run ever. I wasn't at the game. No mother of the year award for

2. Administrative Assistant's Day. Lunch at Olive Garden and some rockin' mixing bowls from
Williams Sonoma, AND a decadent brownie mix. Love. Love. Love.

3. Having my nephews over for a few hours. What's two more boys?

4. Creating. My nephews wedding shower invite.

5. Projects. Don't worry, I saved the picture of Jesus and will do something else with it. But for frame......
I'm obsessed with chalkboard paint. I painted the frame first with a cream color and then added little stain to it to give it some "aging". Then I just painted over the glass with chalkboard paint. I see more chalkboards in my future!!God is good, have a great May!!
