Here is the It's Real Life badge and the code to copy to put it on your post. The badge will appear on your page and will link back here to the fest.
Curb Appeal: Here's our house from the road. Pay no attention to the five gallon bucket holding the front door closed, or the crab grass landscaping. Our house is old (built in 1850, kitchen addition in 1901) and has its issues, but it's filled with love.
This is my junk drawer. I prefer to call it "the drawer next to the refrigerator". Do you need tape? Here ya go. Pretty much any variety of marker? Got that too. Motivational sticker? Check. Calculator? Clip? Tape measure? Sticky note? Recipe card? Paper punch? You'll find it all right here!
My absolute favorite jewelry. Notice where it isn't. My finger. Which is so swollen right now, I couldn't even get my bigger sized jewelry off tonight.
From whence I blog: We can close this armoire which is handy for company, and small children. Notice all the sticky notes--lists of funny things Aviana has said recently (a future post), verses, prayers, quotes, a letter to Dear Annie about how a wife's office is her home and both parents should clock out at the same time, the babies don't keep poem that Mrs Hub talked about in this awesome post, books I need to add to my list...Also you may see DVD's, a slipper, a stuffed animal, Baby C's ultrasound picture, a magazine or two, plus miscellaneous items...need a bobby pin or a screw?
I need to say--I love that picture of the girls in the wagon (which hides a lot more junk and Kevin's printer he uses exclusively for check writing --and I use it when mine runs out of color ink --shh, don't tell)
My best feature: I thought long and hard about this; is it my hair (Clairol Light Auburn), my shapely ankles, my outie belly button, the peach fuzz on my chin?
Finally, I decided my best feature is my laugh. That presents another problem...how in the world can you hear my laugh, naturally? I had my mom tape me watching this absolutely hilarious video; it makes me laugh every single ding dong time I watch it. The girls' antics didn't hurt either. (If you decide to watch the video at the youtube link, know that it isn't exactly appropriate for children, but it went over the heads of my children.)
Click on Mr Linky to add your link. I'm sure he'll be well behaved. If you would be so kind, please post your name and blog name and then link directly to your post, instead of to your whole blog.
For example I would put:
Your name: Jessica at Farm Fresh
Your url: http://farmfreshiowa.blogspot.com/2008/06/its-real-life.html
Now, I'm comin' to your house, I'm comin' to your house, I'm comin' to your house...Ready or not, Here I come! Can't wait!
It's Real Life
