SUYL Home Tour

I have been wanting to post pictures of my house, but have not been able to find the time...I feel like our house has been looking crazy lately because we have been out of town a lot lately. I would love to give you a "tour" of my home....let me start at the beginning....we had a house fire in December of 2009, 5 days before Christmas. It was a very tragic event that really changed our lives. It is hard to explain the feelings/emotions we felt while going through that experience. It brought us closer together as a family and we can now say that it was a blessing in a big disguise...because now, after rebuilding from the frame up, we have a very beautiful home!

Here are a few pictures from the fire....It was in our attic so the whole top of our house was completely burnt...a firetruck just happened to be driving by and saw the smoke (we were not home) and drove down our street! They said that if it would have been just 3 more minutes the house would have literally exploded...which could have been really bad for our neighbors! One of our neighbors did call 911 and they though we were home and were really freaking out. She was also really worried about our dog, which she told the firemen about right away when they go pictures...ha, sorry about that rant...I have never really blogged about the fire.

Here is my new home!!!!
Living Room

(our "foyer"...or lack there of LOL)

Boy's room

Benjamin's room....which you will not see. His big boy bed is being delivered today!!!

Guest/boy's bathroom

It is small...and I am sick of the decor....I think I am going to change it soon...Keep the blue color but add more grey...

Master Bedroom

My husband is very handy. That mirror you see is hinged to the wall and you can swing it out so I can check my outfit! Seriously best idea ever!!!

That door on the left goes into our small bathroom...and then there is a door across from it that goes into our LARGE

We have an eat it dining room....and yes my husband also sets up his computer for his video gaming...lame I KNOW! lol

The cutest part of my kitchen :)

Family Room

And...because we are real...the toys hidden by the couch :)

So.. that is my house...minus our backyard...which maybe I will post pictures about later! I know it was home overload, but I hope you enjoyed!!!


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your house fire. That is so tragic. I can't even imagine. But at least you were all safe and nobody was hurt. Your new home is goregous! I love your decorating style! =)

  2. I'm stopping by for a visit from Kelly's Korner today.
    I'm so sorry about the fire, in your home. Especially so close to Christmas.
    Your 'after' results look amazing. I just had to comment on how clean and spotless your home is. That can be difficult when one has a family.
    It would be so nice to have ceiling fans in our current apartment. Especially with these hot Las Vegas temps!
    I hope you have a wonderful week.

    1. It is hard to keep and at times it feels pointless....5 minutes after I clean it is a mess again...but I am a teacher and am off right now for summer break, so the house is cleaner now than it normally is since I have more free time! :) Las Vegas! Wow!! How fun! It gets hot here too...but not that hot! Stay Cool!
