1. Girl I love it.

    You could call it Reality Realty.

    And you know, if everyone could just train themselves to see through the normal everyday life, it would be a lot easier and more people could find a house. It's amazing how unvisionary people can be!

    heart you!

  2. Don't you hate the thought of selling a house? GAG!!!! However, I love your blog, and it looks like my house, but alas, I'm not trying to sell. Praise God!

  3. I love it – looks like a home with kids . .. who get to be kids. It shouldn't be any other way!

    With 3 kids 2 and under, my house pretty much always looks like that (especially since our oldest is just starting to more occasionally pick up after herself). : )

  4. Too funny! By the way, I haven't gotten around to saying it yet, but it was really fun to meet you at SheSpeaks a few weeks ago! Hope you are doing well!

  5. Your post made me laugh! I think that this is the reality for most of us. Last year I caught my daughter writing on the wall. When I asked her what in the world she was doing, she said,"Helping you make a grocery list, mommy!" It said: 3 PAKS OF COCES
    BIY 1 GAT 1 FRE. This means 3 packs of cookies, buy 1 get one free. It is still there.

  6. WOW! I'm not really qualified to comment on what I've just seen/read. But I'm reminded of a TV show–"Hoarders." Just Joshing ya. Anyway, I was miraculously able to view and read your blog today. I don't know exactly what happened, but I clicked on what I thought was a post and it routed me to the Nester's site, and then I hit the back button and I saw God speak–not literally. P.S. Can you put a spell/grammar check in the comment section for those of us who don't have good grammar or spell well?

  7. Hey Sandy! I've been out of blogging commission for a week or so, but am getting caught up today. This post is hilarious! I'm sure you'll have lines of cars down the street full of people just waiting to get into your house for a look-see. 🙂

  8. Sandy, I can't believe you met The Nester! I love her blog and follow it too. How cool! Not the part about the stalking but meeting her. LOL.

    As someone who has been trying to sell her home, I know what you mean. I kind of like your idea best but …it's hard enough in this market. I find keeping a 3,700 square foot house clean and sparkling even without kids is a big job. We've actually taken ours off the market for now and I was so glad to leave a few crumbs and dust around.

    Sarah was able to sell her house so hopefully yours will sell too. I enjoyed your dose of reality. Maybe I'll use a few parts in my "let's get real" series that I started and haven't reinitiated because I'm too tired from cleaning. I'll email you about that if I do.

    Love you,

  9. that was hilarious….i'll have to check out the Nester (she does look quite scared). LOL!

    we sold our house last year…lots of work. i try (key word) to keep my house "staged" now….working on hospitality and that frees me up to be okay when people drop in….although i also think it puts them at ease to see my piles!

    have fun!

  10. My favorite thing I've read today! Our basement flooded this spring and we are still in the process of remodeling it. So everything is now in our upstairs. If you'd like a good laugh let me know and I'll take a picture of our master bathroom. You won't be able to tell its a bathroom-you can't even walk into it because its stuffed with so much stuff. It missed its calling as a walk in closet!

    You are so brave to show your house the way it really looks. The tour of my house would be just as comical.

  11. Sandy !
    Just don't move. Who will take care of Oreo and the fish while you guys are on vacation???? Not to mention you have such great neighbors 🙂 Good luck ! Lori

  12. I can't show you a picture of it, but my cupboard door looks eerily similar to yours. It's where I tape notes to myself, shopping lists, and of course, the priceless works of art my kids make. I say make good use of the space in front of your face!

    House looks lovely to me. Looks like a happy family lives there. Bless you!

  13. "Enough with the fake house already." I love that!

    I stopped in to invite you to become a follower at my blog – I'm hosting a contest in a few weeks for all my followers, it will be fun!

  14. Sandy..nice idea you have got on staging works. Some people join a series of training for gaining certification on home staging. It might be a sign of enthusiasm today in the industry.
