Our House, in the Middle of the Street

It's about time I blogged about my house. After living in a basement and then a little brick cottage, Todd and I decided to buy our own little piece of heaven...right here in Provo, thinking we'd be here for 3 years or so...
front angle
We found this cute, quasi New England-style house in west Provo. It was brand new (we were so naive). But we have LOVED our neighborhood and our friends here, and the views, and the horses, and ducks, and chickens, and goats, and big grassy yard, and all the different configurations of furniture, etc. We decided to take some nice pictures of the house we love, and I wanted to share it with you!

This is the front room. Our TV is in the corner, you just can't see it (thank goodness). This is where we watch "The Office" and "30 Rock" and on Wednesdays I watch "America's Next Top Model". It should be called the Dining Room, because this is where we eat almost every meal.

This is the sitting room part of the "great room". The red sofa isn't really supposed to be in there, but the room started out one way and ended another, so for the time being, the red sofa lives here.

Here is where the food gets made, and if you are a guest we'll eat at the table unless one of the aforementioned shows is on. The kitchen is very white. And that's the way (uh-huh uh-huh) I like it (uh-huh uh-huh).

mud room
This is the mud room/butler's pantry. This used to be all shelves, but I de-junked and now everything fits into the two HUGE closets on the right (which you can't see but they're there!).

bonus room
This WAS my funky, 60's inspired family room, and we loved having it upstairs. But it was more logical to have this be the bonus room it was always meant to be. So now this is where I sew and think about exercising. I can see the river trail from my huge window.

master bedroom
This is my sanctuary. This is where I sleep and read and blog and e-mail and shop on-line. I love our bedroom.

Maybe later I will add the other bedrooms, but for now this is us. Come and visit!
