Welcome to Cookie-Cuttersville, or, what I like to call "Same House, Different Stuff!"
We live in the Midwest now. Can you say "4H Road?" I hope so. We live off of it! And, we live in Suburbia now--the exact kind of cookie-cutter neighborhood I've always despised. And guess what? It's not that bad. I secretly kinda like it. Weird, huh? So, no, I'm not living in a renovated Victorian or Georgian with hardwood floors and gorgeous crown molding, but I do have friendly neighbors, a safe neighborhood, and a playground nearby. Not to mention that there is a new establishment going in on the corner, the construction progress of which I watch daily with much interest.
So, here's the house.
It comes with a deck and a fenced-in backyard.
And here is the portion of our tour that I like to call "Same Stuff, Different House."
Kitchen (with our real table sprung from storage; no more card table)
Dining Room (hello, Schrank, now filled with serving-ware and not scrapping supplies)
Part of the Living Room (please note our stylish coffee table and the cute, obligatory TV-watcher hiding behind it)
The Truhebank comes in from the garage!
I'll have much more to show you later, but nowhere else in the house is vaguely presentable yet. I suppose if I went and dealt with it instead of blogging I'd have more to show you.
