I will be busy for the next week with company. Yes company again. It is my mother-in-law from Texas, my sister-in-law and her partner from Arizona. They will be here for six nights. So I won't be doing much blogging because we will be sitting around laughing, drinking and having a great time. We might even be going to a casino one day. (If you know me and know my sister-in-law you know that we are going to a casino for sure!) My kids will be coming over and it will be so much fun for all of them to see each other because it doesn't happen that often. So have a great week. If there is something that is of great importance and you know that I would want to know about it please send me an email at . I will try to do some blogging in the mornings and maybe I will just take my laptop out to the kitchen each day, visit and blog at the same time. This is long because of the photos but you can look at them quickly.

After I posted a few pictures last week with my view and my yard I had some requests to show the rest of the house. After living in a house almost half the size of this one for 17 years we decided to buy again. My husbands job had changed so we ended up moving closer to where he works. He has always wanted a bigger house. We sold when the market was high which means we also bought when the market was high. I want you to know that I am no longer the perfectionist I use to be. I unpacked, got kind of organized but haven't done a thing since then. Still have some unpacked boxes and we are going on 3 years here. I realized after doing these pictures that I need allot more stuff on my walls. I was bored on Sunday so I started taking pictures. If you look closely the carpets are a mess from Charlie and Skye running around. On any given day, if you stop over, this is what the house will look like. I didn't go around fixing anything or making these picture perfect. This is our home and we do live in it.

I'm going to take you to the right to the rooms at the front of the house first.

what a beautiful house. The view is totally stunning!! I hope it turned out to be all that you wanted. I just finished building my third new home (this one on a lot I inherited from my parents just a few minutes from the gulf of Mexico) and I hope it's the last. This time we had to hurricane proof the house and that was a totally new experience for me. BTW happy Saturday Sharefest from a SITSA. Drop by my blog if you get a chance. I appreciated your comments on the challenge of having lots of followers.
