I really hope y'all appreciate how much work I do for you...

But you know I love it anyway!

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my honor to bring you the long-awaited and much-requested PICTURE POST of my BRAND NEW SPACE!

First, the street view:




And then, the living room:


Note the boxes.

And the kitchen, taken twice from the same angle (hey, I'm an engineer, not a photographer):






Hey, the pictures look SORT OF different, right? Did you note the blue covering on the microwave?

The adorable breakfast nook:




No bedroom pictures. Hey, I gotta respect my younger readers!

But we DO have a PARTY BATHROOM:


Note the shower curtain is not yet fully hung in this picture.

The Frighteningly Large Mudroom:





Again, taken twice, but from different ends. I promise.

And the backyard! Once from our "back porch":




And once from the alley:


Note the lack of curtains in that window by the shed, which is my bedroom window. I'm surprised I don't have teenagers camping outside that window at night.

And there it is, folks! My adorable house! Yes, my kitchen is turquoise, my mudroom is lavender, and my bathroom is red. And there are boxes everywhere. But this weekend will be different--oh yeah, I'm having a house party! Everyone is invited! If you read this blog, consider yourself invited! Comment to me and say you'd like an invite, and I'll send you one with the address. You can see my house in it's finished, fully occupied state--but assuming you can't make it, you know there will be pictures come Monday.

That is so cute! I love your house. I’m drooling over that yard, just as I’m sure Titan is, only in a more literal sense ;) I'm just jealous because something like that rents for about a bajillion dollars a month here in LA. I may be a 1br apt dweller for the rest of my life *sigh* Hope you have an awesome party! Looking forward to the pics.

I too am jealous. Oh sure, the bank & I own a lovely condo here, but there is no yard for drinks. There is no mud room. Though, my bathroom is ORANGE. (it looked like a lovely coral on the swatch...)

Little to far to drop by the party, but can't wait to see the pics!

That is the coolest house =) Your yard is beautiful. I am so envious

But really, having a yard is not all that it is cracked up to be. I have this HUGE back yard, no front yard.. but it is filled with weeds and stuff, no matter how hard I try to get rid of the weeds, it just keeps coming back. *cry*

Cute house.....I would love to come to your party but I have a feeling the drive to Tacoma, Washington from Philadelphia, PA would be a bit much.....oh well :(

I'll just have to wait until Monday.

Adorable. I want a place like that. I wish we lived closer!

Kelly said...

Your place is TOO CUTE! It looks like it will be very homey, once you unpack that is. Party hard!

Thank you guys! Y'all are TOO CUTE! I hope the house will look a lot cuter once we have furniture n' stuff. And Shananigans...you don't want to know how little I'm paying for it. Tacoma is in a special housing bubble because investors are driving the price up. So it's very hard to buy a house, but the rents here have TANKED. :)

Oh man! I can't believe I missed it! I live in Puyallup and totally could have come :(
