Place to Relax

When you say Living Room, you can kind of think of this big section where you can put couches, coffee tables, Television, and so on and so forth. I chose to not have TV in our living room, due to the fact that I know if we did, the whole place would be trashed by the time my kids are done watching. The carpet would be stained and the couches would have juice, or soda spill. At least now, although we seldom sit in the living room, there is no possibility of adding more stain to the ones that’s already there.

Sometimes, it’s so hard to tell the kids that they are off limits to the living room,because it’s there before their very eyes. Most of the time, I can find toys all over the place, grrr..


With this kind of living room, I don’t even know if I want to sit down and relax, I am afraid that it’s going to get dirty, hahaha!



This one above is cozy one too, with all these windows that surround the living room area, ahhhh!!


Ohhh, we have a fireplace, maybe I can set it up like this.


What a view!! I am afraid of heights, so I guess, I won’t hang around in this area of the house if this was my house. Great place to relax though.

All the pictures were from GOOGLE


Well, these are the thoughts that I have in my mind when it comes to my home. I know that I cannot have this kind of stuff, since these furniture cost a lot of money, and since I have kids that would run around the house, I don’t think that I would have the chance to keep my house as clean as the ones on the pictures. So, I will have to wait until they are done with drawing on the walls, staining the couch, leaving toys on the floor. How may more years? I have no clue. I will jsut have to be patient.

Have a great day to all..

Dream Garden

Like what I keep telling everybody, I don’t have a green thumb, and I have never had a a flower garden in my entire life. The plants that I  had last year all died, expect the palm plants that I kept inside our house. I forgot most of my plants outside and when I realized that they’re there, it’s too late. It’s all dead.

imageI love these flowers, whatever it is, I am not familiar with different kinds of flowers, so I will just depend on the pictures and hopefully when I plant them, whatever was the picture on the outside of the packet would be the exact flowers that will come out.

Wow! I had been wanting to have a garden this gorgeous, but I know it would take a professional gardener to have a great looking garden like the picture above.


Gosh!, a gazebo.. Whew! I wonder when can my husband  build me a gazebo. I will probably be there almost everyday during summer time, and just sit and read my books. Very relaxing and so therapeutic.



I mentioned to my husband that I want one of these arch looking thingy and plant something so it can look like the picture above.  I don’t have the yard for all this, but sometimes, by looking at the pictures, it can give me ideas on what to do. I may not be a gardener, but sometimes , when you put your mind into something, it can happen.

Have a great day to all.

Majority of the pictures were from Southern Living you can check it out too.

My Upcoming Garden

As soon as the weather gets better I will start working in my garden. It’s just too cold at this time to stay outside. I might get sick. My allergies would kill me if I stay outside for too long.

I already have plans for my upcoming project. I call my project, First Flower Garden Top Secret, hehehe.



I was planning on taking these plants down and plant something else. They just look dull.



There’s a spot for plants next to the pathway and I want to plant some wild flowers that way our front yard will have colors.



I wanted to dig these out and toss them, but Rodney said, I need to keep this, it’s a low maintenance plants and even if it dies on winter, it will grow back during spring time.


This is our back entrance. I might put couple of roses here.

The problem in our yards is, it cannot get enough sunlight, so I am not sure how my plants will do. I cannot plant any veggies, since there’s really no place that can get enough sun. I might plant some in pots that way I can move it from time to time.

So far, these are my plans, that hopefully, even if I don’t have a green thumb, I can still make my dream Flower Garden come true.
