Show Us Where You Live Friday - Living Room Edition




Welcome back for another week of the home tour, created by Kelly! This week we're touring living rooms!

Kevin and I have two living areas, so I decided to post about them both today. We only really use the TV room, but occasionally we will sit in the other room with company. Our decorations are a little bare, since I like to add a little at a time and we've only been here a year. I am looking forward to getting some good ideas from others participating today!

Here is the view of our TV room from the kitchen.


Here you can see our Guitar Hero supplies - one of our new favorite activities, haha.


I love my new cross that I got at Canton last week!


The rooms are connected with a see-through fireplace. I love it, but am sad to admit that we have actually only used it twice in the year that we have lived here.


These are on the mantle on the TV room side of the fireplace. They're my favorite, simple decorations because I love the message.


If you walk around the fireplace you enter the family room.

So that's our living room situation! You may have noticed quite a few candles - I am obsessed! I usually have at least 4 going around the house at any given time!

Check back tomorrow because I plan to blog about the week's happenings - fits, funny comments, teacher appreciation week, and arms stuck in chairs. It should be fun - just like this week.
