5 Things you would learn about me if you walked through my house.

So here is a cute little carnival some friends of mine are participating in. The point is to take 5 pictures and share them showing what someone would learn about you if they walked through your house. This was hard as my house is a state of everything is everywhere and I am NOT sharing a picture of that.

1) We LOVE coffee

2) We have kids and their stuff is all over my house. There is no designated playroom.

3)We don’t have a dining room table. We have a desk that looks like a table. Winking smile This is where you can find Tobei, Me and Big Brother a LOT.

4) Tobei uses the living room as a dressing room to not wake his wonderful wife in the mornings. Hangars sometimes make it upstairs.

5) We like to decorate surface areas with stuff.
lots of clutter zones

So this was fun yet embarrassing. Logging off to go clean my house. Feel free to join in and link up over at MomDot.

  1. I LOVE coffee too! I have about 5 different coffee makers. Sounds excessive when I type it but I swear it’s not. πŸ˜‰

  2. Those hangers would drive me NUTS!!!!


    • Oh you would go crazy in my house. Those hangars are actually put away compared to normal. They gather on our table or hanging on kitchen door. I need an organizing committee to deal with my house so everything has a home. Then maybe hangars would land back in the closet.

  3. Hah. Awesome job, Nolie. My favorite is the hangars! I do that myself all over the house. Drives my wife nuts.

  4. My first photo was coffee too!! πŸ™‚ Love it and loved learning more about you πŸ™‚

  5. LOL, my kitchen table looks very similar to yours. Its used as a desk most days as well.

  6. We are currently shopping for the perfect desk and our kitchen table looks just like yours!

  7. It sounds like your house looks like mine. I love that your hubs gets dressed downstairs so he doesn’t wake you!! πŸ™‚

  8. I’m guilty of the hangers too. I drive myself nuts when I do it too.

  9. Yeah, you’ll notice on my blog I didn’t take any pictures of surfaces, just things. Because we also like to ‘decorate’ our surfaces with stuff, aka junk. πŸ™‚ I loved your very honest pictures. Families create a busy house with lots of stuff going on. Loved the hangers, too. I can relate to so much! Thanks for sharing.

  10. I really like the desk/table!!

  11. OMG, EVERY surface in our home has STUFF on it, It drives me crazy. Jim also dresses in the living room so he doesn’t wake me in the mornings.

  12. I, too, decorate all the surface areas in my home with “stuff”. It comes with the territory!

  13. I’m a really good surface area decorator too!

  14. Fun! I’ve got a designated play room, but that doesn’t seem to stop my kids from leaving their stuff all over the house!

  15. Count me in with the other ‘stuff decorators’ – I don’t know where it all comes from. I clean and a day later it’s all back. I blame it on ghosts.

  16. I’m a coffee lover and not the perfect house cleaner. I know you feel better now! LOL
    Enjoyed learning about you.

  17. Hey we decorate with stuff too πŸ™‚ I love coffee as well.

  18. You had me at coffee! Cheers, you house looks like mine in a lot of ways!

  19. I love that so many of us have coffee in our lists! My photos are pretty embarrassing with all of the STUFF we have everywhere, much worse than yours so don’t feel bad! I like your desk/table!

  20. Bahaha I love #5- definitely sounds like my house. πŸ™‚

  21. I have a #5 too!!! Guess I should get on this bandwagon. What a fun meme.

  22. Looks like a lived in house! I always have “stuff” everywhere.

  23. If you walked into my family room you could totally tell kids live here too…I don’t have colorful mats, but I have parts of my furniture turned different ways and made into forts!

  24. my bedroom furntuture is covered in stuff too, I hate it!

  25. Toys are always around my house too…. none of keep our toys where they belong πŸ™‚

  26. Nolie,
    I LOVE this idea! Who thought of this? I think I will do this with my “organized” followers. But I want to give someone credit.
    Thanks for sharing your secrets.

    • Trisha from momdot came up with this idea. At the bottom of the post I have linked to her post that includes a linky of all of us who participated.

  27. fun post! nice getting to know you a bit more through πŸ˜‰

    love the hanger thing! lol seems like something my hubby would do!
