I am participating in another fill in the blanks Friday because honestly I needed some prompting for what to blog about today. Plus, I love dreaming about redoing my house!

1. My favorite room in my home is- Our living room....because it so comfy and the biggest room of the house so we can all fit and we seem to spend the majority of our time there.

2. My current decor style is- modern with elements of country chic ??  . but I wish it were more- colorful, I am slowly trying to infuse more and faze out some of our older pieces.

3. I wish I could redecorate- the kitchen!! It is a nightmare and so outdated To make it more- updated. Our refrigerator leaks, our counters are so porous that they soak everything up the minute it spills and don't even get me started on the cupboards!

4. My dream house absolutely has to have a-another bathroom! We only have one and for now that is fine but when I have two teenagers I am not going to want to fight with them for the bathroom!

5. One house item I am willing to splurge-  Hmm.... I would say furniture but while the kiddos are still young I don't think that is the wisest idea so I am going to go with is appliances. Our new HE washing machine is great!

6. A decor trend that I just don't "get" is-  All white. Well, I get looks pretty but it isn't very practical. I would always be worried about spilling and I want to feel comfortable in my home. :)

7.  Plenty of family photos and kid's artwork is -a little touch that makes my house feel like home


  1. All white with pops of color looks so beautiful, but I would have that stained up in 2.5 seconds.

    Happy Friday girl!

  2. i couldn't agree with you more on the all white decor. it is so crisp and clean and pretty. but yes, i agree, it wouldn't last long. hahaha
    i don't even have kids yet, but steve and i are clumsy (ok, maybe just me) enough and i just see the white turning to stain central in no time!!
    i think we have very similar tastes...i love the country chic look too! :)

    i hope you and your family have an awesome weekend, ashley!!
    xoxo <3

  3. We used to have white carpet in our house when we moved in. We also had a very close relationship with the carpet cleaner. The best home renovation we ever did was replace it with travertine floors that I can never tell if they are dirty or clean.

  4. I love the white decor, but there is NO WAY I would EVER put it in my house. I love color too much, and we are kind of messy sometimes (a lot). We spill a lot of stuff. : )

  5. I'm a new GFC follower from Mom2MemphisandRuby blog today. I'd love a follow back! Your site is too cute!

  6. I love country chic too, that is what I aim for when I'm decorating! Your home sounds inviting!!

  7. You have read my mind today, I have been looking at new living room decor lately and I keep being drawn to the white, white, white, but MAN, I hae a 4 year old and a 2 year old. Seems CRAZY!!!!

    I absolutely agree to splurge on the appliances!
