Home Tour Part One | The Living Room

So I know I've been MIA for basically the past year. I've popped in occasionally, here and there, but for the most part, I've been a craptastic blogger. Sorry about that.

Anyway. Over the past year, we've had lots of changes. One of those was a pretty big move. We left our home in Lincoln, NE and moved to the good old blogging headquarters of the world - Happy Valley (AKA Utah County), UT.

We lived in an apartment in Orem for about half a year while we looked for a place to call home. We ended up buying a home in southern Utah County. It has been quite the move, but I'll talk about all the crazy culture shock and adjusting and all that good stuff another time. Until then, I've decided to introduce you to a different room in our house each week. I, for one, really enjoy getting a peek into other bloggers' homes - it makes me feel like we are real life friends. :)

Week One: Our living room

Really, the thing I'm most proud of are my bookcases. I'm still looking for something to do with the 2nd to last shelf on each one, but I'll figure it out eventually.


I actually really love this room. When we first moved into the house, the walls and ceiling were brown and the doors and trim were a greenish tan. It looked so, so dark and I hated it. We ended up having the home painted about a week after we moved in. Totally worth it.

Someday we would like to put some wood floors in, but that might not happen for a couple of years, as there are other things we'd like to do first.

Have you done a home tour on your blog? I'd love to see it!!

Oh I'm going to love this weekly post!! I love home tours! I live in an apartment right now so there isn't much to see unfortunately, but once our house is built and we move in, I'm totally going to do a home tour! Love the idea of spreading it out into several posts!

You could totally do some thick, chunky throw blankets on those shelves... cute, and it won't break when the monsters pull them off to play with :)

Also, I love this! Mostly, because I feel like you and I are real life friends, and I'm bummed I haven't had a chance to see this house yet.

BROWN walls? Why would anyone do that?? It looks great! I'm really interested to read what you're going to write about Utah County. I commuted to Orem for about a year for work. Utah is it's own special kind of special. Utah County...even more special.

It is a very hard situation when playing the lottery and never won, or keep winning low fund not up to 100 bucks, i have been a victim of such a tough life, the biggest fund i have ever won was 100 bucks, and i have been playing lottery for almost 12 years now, things suddenly change the moment i came across a secret online, a testimony of a spell caster called dr emu, who help people in any type of lottery numbers, i was not easily convinced, but i decided to give try, now i am a proud lottery winner with the help of dr emu, i won $1,000.0000.00 and i am making this known to every one out there who have been trying all day to win the lottery, believe me this is the only way to win the lottery.
