My Living Room

So I haven't been blogging's been super busy around here. 
 I have been on a mission to get every area of my home/life organized. 

 I organized the entire house last year when my pregnancy nesting instincts kicked in, but I am ready to tackle it again!  

I plan on updating some systems that aren't working for me and reorganizing the places that have become cluttered.  

I've already started in the kitchen and hope to share pictures soon.

Anyway, until then I thought I would link up at Kelly's Korner for her "Show Us Your Life" home tour.  I thought it would be fun to document what my living room looks like right now, so I can look back on it in a few years.  

(The pictures are a little fuzzy because they were taken on my phone.)  

The living room is a pretty big room and opens up into the kitchen.  Donnie bought our leather couches before we got married.  I love how durable they are and so easy to clean up.  They are the best for kids!  (Though my greatest fear is one of the boys taking a sharpie to it!)  

Donnie and I made our coffee tables while we were dating.  A good friend of ours is a woodworker and he helped us put them together.  It was so much fun and such a great memory!

The picture on the wall is a canvas print of a lighthouse in northern California that we visited on our honeymoon.  My mom made the super cute number pillows on my couch.

Drew made sure he was in at least one of the pictures.

I try to change the mantel decorations seasonally.  It is such a small space to decorate but is a focal point for the entire room.

We listen to our favorite Pandora stations when we are hanging out in the living room.

My new favorite living room decoration is my thrift store frame that I turned into a magnetic chalkboard.  

Well that's a little snapshot of my living room.  

Thanks for stopping by!
