Tour of Homes




Ok, I'll start by apologizing that it's 10:23 p.m. and I'm just getting this done. I ended up being gone all day!
The Tour of Homes is being sponsored by BooMama at:
www.boomama.blogspot.com
Go check out her site to see hundreds of other fabulous homes!

Welcome to my home!
This is my front door- we just redid the entry way so this is our new front door- I'm really happy with the color!


















This is where I'm getting addicted to being! My computer desk where I do all my blogging!













This is my bedroom- we did this room when we moved in 13 yrs ago and haven't done anything with it since. That is changing in the next weeks- it is getting fresh paint and all new accessories- bedspread, window accessories etc... I can't wait!











I think this is one of my favorite rooms in the house- it's my girls room. We just redid this last year in bright colors. It's a very cheery room to be in. Since we adopted our girls from Russia I had them paint on the wall in Russian. It says Sisters and Friends. Hopefully that will stay true!!














This is our kitchen- this is always busy with activity!













This is where I usually end my day- relaxing in the living room- trying to keep the kids in bed!



Thanks for stopping by!

I was a Russian major in college, but haven't done anything with it in the 16 years since I graduated. I read "Sisters and Friends" on the wall, before I read your comment explaining what it said. Hey, my monthly student loan payments aren't really for nothing after all! How exciting to have adopted children from Russia. We know a family who has 5 of their own children and 2 daughters adopted from there.

I love this idea - you should do a scrapbook page on it for your kids. I would love to have something like this from when I was a kid! Mari

Sisters and Friends, in Russian, on your girls' wall? That may be the sweetest thing I've heard in ages. Their room is adorable. You have a lovely home. Thank you for letting me drop in.

Thanks for inviting us in for a visit of your lovely home. I think your front door redo is great. Really like the color you chose for your door! Nice kitchen too-pretty color and I noticed your set of nesting dolls! Your girls room is bright and cheerful. Nice job on the stripes and how special that they could add a personal touch to it! I saw you post on your corn on the cob - your girls are beautiful.
