Hey my favorite readers! I hope you all had an amazing weekend (from the looks of twitter, most of you did!) Our weekend was amazing, and Mathew’s birthday went off without a hitch! The best part of it all? He loved every single moment of it. I’ll be blogging about it tomorrow with a few pictures, but for now I am linking up with Becky from “From Mrs. To Mama” for Show and Tell Monday.

1. If you were searching for a home now, tell me what would be on your “MUST” list.

There are several things we’d want on our list such as hardwood floors (Pearl eats the carpet sometimes and has the occasional accident if she’s really gotta go). Plus, I love the fact that all we’d have to do is sweep and swiffer! I also would love a big kitchen because I love to cook and love fancy appliances (like my Kitchenaid mixer). And of course, a nice living room is essential. Mathew and I don’t have a t.v. in our bedroom (and I kind of like it that way), so I’d want a large room for a t.v., couches, and enough room to seat at least 8-10 people in case we had our small group over. 

Hardwood floors or tile since we have a puppy who likes to eat carpet. 
A nice, big kitchen with a nice stove, lots of counter space, and a wine rack.
A large, open living room so we could entertain our friends
    2. Show me your favorite room in a home {either your home, or any home, i.e. kitchen}

    Right now, my favorite room in our home is our bedroom. I’m kind of proud at how we decorated it. However, I think if we didn’t live in an apartment, my answer might be different. That’s why I decided to show you a picture of this awesome closet! It reminds me of Carrie from Sex and the City or Mia from The Princess Diaries.

    I think if I was rich & had a large home, and I had a closet like this, it’d be my favorite “room”. 

    3. If you could have any room redone, tell me which one would it be and what would you like done?

    Right now, I’d like to redo our living room. We live in an apartment, so we can’t paint walls and stuff, and our palette is tan, dark brown, and black. I’d love to add some splashes of color on the walls (a pretty teal or something) and to different elements in the room (lamp, pillows, etc). I have some paintings/artwork that I’ve pinned to Pinterest that I’d really like to buy to spruce up the off white walls in here.

    4. Tell me where your favorite stores are to shop for home decor.

    Anytime I go shopping, I head to Kohls, Hobby Lobby, and Pier One. Pier One mainly gives me inspiration (because it’s pretty pricey), so I rarely actually buy anything from there (the only thing I’ve bought are placemats lol). 

    Kohls always has a good selection and they give out Kohl’s cash, too!

    5. Show me your dream home {it can be your home, if you already have your dream home}

    Mathew and I love laying out at the pool on hot, summer days. This would be the perfect house with large windows and a stone outside. I like one story houses because I feel they’re a little more manageable. I’d like a wider house versus a tall house.

    Love this house!
