Ready for a Home Wreck?

I don't share pictures of our home much. Mainly, because it's not anywhere near finished. But, it's the first place Boyfriend and I lived together and the first place we brought the Bambinos to spend the night; because of that it will forever have a special place in my heart.

I thought it would be fun to link up with From Mrs to Mama for her show and tell home link up.

  • If you were searching for a home now, tell me what would be on your "MUST" list

  • A dishwasher. We don't have one and it kills me. I hate dishes being in the sink so I do dishes at least 4-5 times per day on the weekends and twice on weeknights. 

  • A big backyard. I've been spoiled with one. I love that we have a huge deck and big (fenced) space where the boys can play. 

  • A playroom. The Bambinos' toys are all over the  living room/kitchen/dining room. I would love to have a designated space where we could hide toys if we have guests.

  • A walk-in closet. B built a walk in in the master bedroom but it's still pretty small. All my clothes are in the spare room's closet.

  • More space and more storage. Our house is only about 1200 sq feet. Although it's three bedrooms 1.5 bath, we have too much stuff to fit comfortably in here. And our house is seriously lacking storage space. We've had to create storage which takes up floorspace.

  • Show me your favorite room in a home {either your home, or any home, i.e. kitchen}. My favorite room is probably the Bambinos room because it's the most done. I never shared pictures of the finished nursery because I'm still not happy with it, but it's closer to being finished than any other room.
    I put these dots up the night before the Bambinos were born because I wanted something on the walls

  • If you could have any room redone, tell me which one would it be and what would you like done? The kitchen and our bedroom. Our bedroom kills me! It looks like a male college student lives there. Boyfriend won't let me paint the walls  or put anything on them because when he finally removes the popcorn ceiling it'll "make a mess." I don't care. I dream of having a serene, inviting bedroom that I love to spend time in.

  • There's a Michael Jordan poster over my bed...jealous?

  • Tell me where your favorite stores are to shop for home decor. I get the most stuff from Target. I'm jealous of all the people who have Home Goods. It looks like people get some really cool stuff there and we just now got one in Washington state. It's not super close to me though, and kind of in a bad city.

  • Show me your dream home {it can be your home as well} My dream home is this one. I love everything Layla and Kevin do. I love all the personal touches they've added to their home and I love that they do it themselves, jut like B has been. I would adapt what they do just a bit since I don't live in a cottage, but they could definitely teach me a thing or a million.

    I may complain about this house, but at the same time, I'm proud of it. B has done a lot of work and done it all himself. He's paying out of pocket for it rather than charging the work so he's not super in debt which is important to the both of us. Plus, B bought it when he was single. It's a good first home, I just don't feel like it's our forever home.

    Now go link up!


    1. I love that you posted a picture of your home, because like you said, it has so much meaning to you, and forever will. I have to say the same about mine. It will always be our first and so special to us.

      I so wish I had a walk in closet... I never knew how much until I didnt have one! I even had one in College... and this home? nope.

    2. I just love your boys room! Sooo adorable!

    3. Your boys room is soo cute. And girl, I def hope your next house has a dishwasher!! :)

    4. I LOVE your house!! Super cute! And we have a very similar wish list!
      You have a really cute blog! I love stories about multiples, can't wait to read more! :)

    5. Awwwwww this takes me right back to being at your house!! I was SO IMPRESSED with all that B has done himself. And E&E's room is pretty adorable.

      The most important thing for me in looking for a place to live is a washer and dryer. Matt and I were considering moving recently and I basically won't consider any place that doesn't have laundry.


    I'd love to hear what you have to say, I always ALWAYS write back so please make sure you have an email attached to your profile :)
