Show and Tell: Home Edition

Today I'm participating in From Mrs. to Mama's "Show and Tell: Home Edition".

I thought it would be appropriate since we've been house searching. :)

Here are her questions:
  1. If you were searching for a home now, tell me what would be on your "MUST" list
  2. Show me your favorite room in a home {either your home, or any home, i.e. kitchen}.
  3. If you could have any room redone, tell me which one would it be and what would you like done?
  4. Tell me where your favorite stores are to shop for home decor.
  5. Show me your dream home {it can be your home, if you already have your dream home}

(1) Must List.

1. Counter space in the kitchen!
Right now I don't have much of that. (I alluded to that in one of my favorite past posts EVER)
This is a must for me because I want to be able to spread all of my ingredients out, to have multiple dishes going on at once, and to have a bar for people to sit and casually eat. 

2. Closet space.
Right now Jordan and I share one little closet. I don't need the best closets ever, just more space to keep things TIDY! And yes, I still haven't bought clothing in 2012. (I'll give you an update on that later.) So no, I am not continually stuffing more things in there. This closet just wasn't meant for 2 people.

3. At least three bedrooms, preferably four.
For lots of space now, and room for growth later. :)

4. A decently sized, private yard.
For cookouts and games and room to play.

5. Good living and dining areas to entertain. With a fireplace.
We LOVE to have people over for game nights and such, and we plan on having the youth group over a lot now that it's about to begin for fall. Along with this is the fact that we won't have someone living below us who hates any type of noise (including us simply walking). So that'll be nice.

(2) Favorite Room in a Home.

Any eating/gathering area. Centered around family and fellowship.

I love exposed brick and beams by the way.

(3) Renovated Room.

Well, when we have a house, the first room I'd want to "renovate" would be the living room.
Just some paint and our furniture and decorating touches will make it OURS. 

And it would have to be perfect for Christmas decorating!

With lots of WHITE and light colors. I love love love bright and white and airy.

(4) Favorite Decor Stores.

My #1 store is The Nest hands down. It's in downtown Burlington, NC. SUCH GREAT STUFF. Vintage, renovated, gorgeous pieces for good prices. Ahhh I love it. It's been too long since I've been. When people compliment anything at our place, it's usually from The Nest. And let's not even talk about their Christmas stuff or we'll be here all night.

I also love HomeGoods and TJMaxx. But we really haven't had to buy much because we were given so much furniture by wonderful people. What a blessing. :)

(5) Dream Home.

I have no idea what my dream home would really look like, because anywhere we move together will be a dream. Sounds cheesy but it's for real. I'll guess I'll have to choose the place that's been my dream home since the age of 5.

With this library of course!

Thank you to Becky for having this link-up! Let me know if you link up too so I can see your answers. :)



  1. Haha...I would love Belle's library also...great idea! :)

  2. SO fun! One thing I wished I would have looked at is other houses in the neighborhood... Are they well maintained? We found some of our neighbors do NOT like working outside! =/ xoxo

  3. A library...yes, I would love that too!

  4. I love white and light, too, but I'm the mom of a little boy and learned early that it was better to have colors that masked finger prints. LOL! And spills... and puddles... Sigh. I suppose the best space is the one that works for the whole family.

  5. I utterly attitude and revalue your bushel on each and every target.homebuyerhoustonhowwebuy
