In Our House

In Our House

M tends to clean the kitchen. I am so blessed.

You won't have to take off your shoes to come in.

There is a scattering of living (dare I say thriving) house plants, placed high enough so that *someone with 4 legs who shall remain nameless* doesn't mistake them for outside plants...and pees on them.

We have a whole shelf/cart of liquor and almost never drink it.

You won't find a coffeemaker. #sorrynotsorry

We hardly ever open windows because of my allergies. But you will also hardly ever see blinds or curtains closed during the day. LET THERE BE LIGHT!

You won't ever see overhead lighting...well in the areas that I govern at least. In the man cave, who knows?

The throw pillows will be set perfectly if no one is sitting on the couch.

There is a folded snuggie next to the couch if you need it.

Everything has a place.

There are bare walls...not because I like it, but because I'm picky about my art/wall decor.

Surfaces will be clear. A cluttered surface = anxiety for me.

You'll be hard pressed to find anything red. Or warm colors. #teamgraysandblues

We go sometimes weeks without touching the thermostat. Our house stays cool most of the time, which we both prefer. (And by cool I mean between 68 and 72 degrees.)

What about you? What about your house?

Inspired by Steph's post. 


  1. I loved when Steph did this--and now love that you did it too! I may have to jump on this train! :)

  2. Love this! I like my house at 65 degrees in the winter/fall and 68 in the summer.

  3. I am also anti-overhead lighting. the worst is overhead lighting with the fan on. It drives me crazy!

  4. We have alcohol in our fridge and cabinet that hasn't been touched in at least a year x). We are not drinkers and it's there for emergency purposes or was part of some leftovers from friends. Cluttered surface = anxiety for me, too. I have a little pile of papers, some coasters, and the remotes on my coffee table. Anything else and I must clear it.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
