Special : Show Us Where you Live

Kelly's Korner is hosting a linky party. Today we feature our living rooms. Take a look at Kelly's wow, that is the look I love! I want some zebra pillows like hers.

I am also realizing how much more I want to do in here... crown molding, rug, TV, entertainment center, built-in's. OK on with the tour. If you have any suggestions, please give me free advice!


Welcome to my living room, let me give you a tour. First is our huge custom leather couch. This was our first anniversary gift to each other (7years ago). Looking in to the kitchen. Read about my frugal kitchen redo.

Looking out from the kitchen. I am keeping it real, you notice the glass of wine, sippy cup and mail? Also we have our petting zoo (our pack n play) in the corner for our little 2 year old. My cross wall is very special to me. We do hope to get a flat screen TV and a new entertainment center sometime.


I absolutely love our family photo over the fireplace. Brandi from B4 photography took this incredible photo.

Lastly, this was taken when we first purchased the house. We were not big fans of the sunshine yellow. We calmed this room down with a nice neutral color.
We enjoy many relaxing days in our living room. Thank you for visiting!

I'm only half way through looking at the different linked blogs, and yours in the 3rd one I've seen with a cross collage and I LOVE it! I think I may have to start one of my own - so pretty!

Enjoyed my visit here for the first time at your blog. Wow on the couch! The fireplace is great. My old house doesn't have one, and there are so many nights I think it would be peaceful sitting in front of the fire and relaxing.

Way to keep it real - I tried to hide my Sonic drink, but eventually embraced it. I love your window treatments!
