The Cutest House on the Block!

(You should be able to make the pics bigger now, if you'd like...)

Thank you, my friends, for being so patient...and let me assure you, it was totally worth the wait!  I finally have my house mostly set up the way I want and now you, too, can enjoy the darlingness that is my home sweet home.  Let me give you the tour...

First, the front and back yard, and the view of the house from the street (I'm not even kidding, there are no words for how much I love this tiny house.)

Moving inside to the front room:
And my little 'home office' area and the giant armoire that is my coat closet:
This here is the kitchen (by the way, I didn't have to paint or do was already this adorable.)
...and the so called 'dining room' which has yet to be dined in
The little restroom:
The smallest spare-room ever, which has become my exercise room:
And finally, my wonderful bedroom:



I have decided that I'm only making myself more miserable dwelling on things I can't control or change.  I'm letting go of those awful feelings of sadness and anger and being inadequate.  Welcome to my much more cheerful blogspace.  :)



I am...excited to see some old friends this weekend!
I house is the cutest EVER!
I know... how to sniff out a bargain on pretty much anything
I want... to go dancing this weekend
I have... around 25 handbags
I wish ...I didn't get irritated so easily
I hate... meatloaf, rude people, windy weather
I fear... losing people who are important to me
I feel... productive - I've already raked leaves AND done my workout for the day!
I hear... some good music coming from the back bedroom
I smell... apple cinnamon air freshener
I wonder... what I'll take to Pam's this weekend
I regret... letting myself be too vulnerable
I love... naps, ice cream, doggies, my family
I always... follow my instincts
I am not ... big on drama
I believe... in myself
I don't always... remember to take out the garbage on trash day
I win... because I have the raddest friends EVER
I lose... a lot of things because I'm too forgetful and easily distracted (if anyone finds my Banana Republic card...)
I never... am on time for anything!
I listen... to my own fears and insecurities more than I should
I am scared of... ghosts and spiders
I read... whatever I can get my hands on, whenever I have time
I am happy about... my independence and my ability to rely on myself

I wasn't planning on doing anything for Halloween this year, but at work people dressed up and there was a party and a costume contest so Kami convinced me to dress up as Sarah Palin.  Or, more accurately, Tina Fey as Sarah Palin.  (It was easy since I already had everything I needed in my closet.)  It turned out pretty fantastic - my hair was absolutely amazing, like a helmet of pouf.  And at work I won Scariest Costume.  After work I went to Kami's sister and brother-in-law's house for dinner and a movie, and Sarah got rave reviews there as well.  All in all it was a lovely night.  Happy halloween!
