I was just "tagged" by my good friend, Jill (Porter) Harkness! I'll have you know I took these pictures yesterday after she tagged me and today my house is MUCH cleaner!! Anyway, presenting the Nelson abode, right here, right now! Enjoy! :-)...PS-For those of you who don't know, you are supposed to take pictures of certain rooms/objects around the house exactly how they are at that moment, UNTOUCHED!...uh oh!
Voila! The Living Room/Family Room!

Thanks to Jenna for the awesome pumpkin canvas paintings! Charly spends half her day playing with this "Chichen"(kitchen)!

*Thank you Shkapich's!*

...And the kitchen! Notice my dining table doubles as a handy
gathering place for laundry!

My least favorite feature of our home...the laundry "room" is IN the kitchen

Is it weird for me to say this would be my favorite room? This room is my quiet sanctuary away from my noisy world! I go in here to pray, to meditate and to catch up on my pile of archived "Good Housekeeping" magazines that go unread for weeks before I'm finally able to catch a minute to endulge myself!

Okay, so we're on an all time LOW as far as groceries go! Do you see that tupperware in there with the blue lid? Those are leftover Spaghettios I randomly bought, just to see if Charly liked them. Well, she loved them, but I will not buy them again because sadly I think they taste and smell like vomit!

This just seemed like a fitting look for this post...I look like I have a bruise over my right eye.

Here she is, folks! the way, any tips on how to keep those naps rollin'? She's down to 30 minutes a day instead of 2 hours and I don't know what to do!!

I love it! That picture of Charly at the end is priceless! So I don't think it is weird at all that the potty is your favorite room in the house. You are more like Mom than you think!! HAHA! But really, I am jealous because every single one of my kids follow me into the bathroom and WON'T LEAVE!!! I have nowhere to go!! HELP!!

All I have to say is that if your house is usually cleaner than that....then I feel really bad about my housekeeping skills! It was fun to see some of where you live.

You have a beautiful home, I'm jealous! Good luck with the napping, hopefully it's just a stage!!!

So, I'm not the only one who thinks spaghettios look and taste like vomit! I love what you've done with the kitchen! I never got to see the finished project! Nap? What nap? Charly is too busy to take a nap! That is so funny because Mom Nelson said we never took naps.

I love how everyone I have seen so far with this tag has almost a perfectly clean house!!! Cute post!

Ashley Rae said...

Aw, I love all the pictures. You have a really cute house! And Charly is so adorable- even when she's bawling. :)

Time really does fly, doesn't it??
