Day 16: Dream Home
Some people dream of building their own home. I'm not one of those people. My dream is to do a "fixer upper". (You know, where you buy an older house and fix it up). There are several homes downtown in the city I live in that I like.
|Real house in my town. It's actually the house where Big Fish was filmed, |
if you're familiar with that movie.
And after I got this dream house, I would have to decorate it, of course. I actually have a book that I where I cut things out of magazines and catalogs and all and paste them in there. So, I do have a plan for it and all. :)

I really like the whole modern-but-not-too-modern thing. I like color- and I like it bright. And monograms. I love some monograms. But, I think the biggest thing that I would want to remember with my dream house is that I want it to be lived in. I want there to be toys strewn all over the floor. I want the beds to not always be made. I want to show that fun things are happening and memories are being made and that family is what really matters. I really don't want to live in one of those crazy immaculate houses that you're scared to touch anything in.
And- now I'm off to continue making messes. I'm currently in the middle of making a pie crust for this apple pie that I'm making. So, dancing to Taylor Swift's new CD is definitely a part of that one! I'll post pictures and such of the experience later.
