day dreaming vs. reality



this blog serves as a place to store beautiful images.....
but it's not my real world. my real world is quite different, especially w/ two kiddos in the mix.  being home with them, trying to work, and preparing for a party we are having here on sat. is almost impossible...why, b/c i have to chase this kiddo around.  and he is into everything:

right after this pic was taken, he leaned in and did a handstand into the bath tub, no water was in there.  and i was right behind him to recuse him.
i start my day w/ a plan, a list of things i have to get done....
today i thought would be the day to paint this mirror that i got when i was in charleston....
luckily my sweet neighbor invited tay to the zoo....walker just went down for his nap and i am off to "try" and get a coat of paint on this....and answer my backed up email list....and try and shower....and clean up all of the toys that have taken over my LR/ DR......

so when y'all email me and say i don't know how you do it w/ two kids...well, i am by no means a "master" as you can definitely tell.....

Been trying to paint interior doors for seven days now . . . Only two are done!! The little people in my life (and their toys) have migrated with me, each room in this sweet house shows evidence of their existence!

Good luck to you! I'm told someday we'll miss having a stairway laced with toys!

Love your blog . . . Amanda

Thank you so much for keeping your blog real. This is what a well lived life looks like.

I've been trying to get a few house projects done for weeks and my kids are in College not babies.
Ugh!

Love your blog. You are doing a great job! :)

Wow! So amazing home I like it so much. It’s looking natural. I like to have my own home just like this. There is no bar of neutrality.
