Oh, if I could, I would...

Have you forgotten me yet? I hope not! I know it's redundant to say...but it's just been so darned busy around here! End of year parties...my year as president of our medical alliance ending...BabyBoy's birthday coming up...redecorating rooms in the house...swim team...gymnastics...are you exhausted yet? 'Cause I definitely am! We've had a great several weeks. Last weekend we had the honor and priveledge of attending the Virginia Republican Convention and got to hear Sean Hannity speak. It was awesome! He gave such a great speech. We would have loved to have heard Mitt Romney speak at the Gala the evening prior, but we just couldn't get there in time!

I've had so many new ideas for blog posts...Etsy is my new obsession! I will be posting a lot about that soon.

I know I also promised to post pix of our "complete" master bedroom. However...it just isn't perfect yet. Soon...soon! We're renovating BabyBoy's bathroom right now and I can't WAIT to post pix. It should be a great transformation.

Today, however...I want to escape from reality. I want to do an I SO would if I could post.

I have always wanted a beach house. Unfortunately, Dr. Daddy is very much a glass half empty kind of folk and is terrified of hurricanes!!!

SOOOO, I'm going to do a post about my dream beach house. If I could I would have this house



with this kitchen





and how about this entry?





Imagine the blogging I could do from this master suite...






BabyBoy would LOVE this bedroom...don't you love the Hermes blanket? (atleast...I think it's Hermes!)





And BabyGirl's room...





And if the friends or cousins come to visit? We'll definitely need both of these rooms!






Of course...Mimi will need a room as well...and every girl needs some LV!





And since we all need a place to hang out and watch our back episodes of Weeds and The Real Housewives...





There are certainly a zillion more rooms I would love to post...but for now...this is my dream beach house!!!

Gorgeous! Glad you are back! Not sure if you have time for a tag- but I tagged you for 5 favs of summer... Hope all is well in the land of sippies...

I dream of having a beach house one day too and that one is to die for!! The interiors are amazing, but more what I would want for my everyday home. I've always pictured my beach house interior with lots of white washed and bleached woods, natural fabrics, etc. Very casual and beachy.

I can spend hours on etsy! Love your dream beach house. My husband is obsessed with finding a residency near a beach.

Wow! What a beautiful house!!

I think you would have lots of use for the spare guest rooms! You would have tons of company if you bought this house! It is great! My husband is the same about beach houses/hurricanes, too. We didn't leave the NC Coast for Arizona for no reason. :)

Great that you got to see Sean Hannity. I love listening to him.

That kitchen! I could live there no problem!!!

How cool are those beds hanging from the ceiling? Wow!

Sara said...

I would love to live in any of these rooms. Well, maybe not the kids room with twin beds. LOL!

The Clearys said...

Oh, I just love Hannity! So jealous you got to hear him speak. Seriously, I wish we lived closer to Richmond...

Love the house!

glad you love the pink and brown room! i'm redoing my bedroom in an almost identical color scheme and i just bought a mirror that looks exactly like that to go over my bed. great minds think alike :)

Little Dickens Designs said...

WOW! Gorgeous! Can I come live with you? I'm sure in a house that big there's enough room for your family and my family of four, no? I hear ya on hectic. End of school feels like a race!

LOVE the house, especially the lining room and bunk beds.

Leslie said...

Does this beach house really exist or is it a bunch of pics from several different places? It is awesome! I love it! And must find it!

Came across your blog and saw the wonderful window treatments you've made. I'm in the process of making bedding and such for my 2nd baby due in September and wondered if you would let me know what patterns you used to make the relaxed London shades in your master bedroom (I think) and the beautiful treatments in your daughter's room. I look forward to adding you to my blog "list" and keeping up with your future sewing projects!

Mine, too! My gf has a room of bunk beds in her second home in the keys. That room is my favorite! I would love that beach house, too, but would take any sensible shack by the beach.

Love, love, love these photos!!! I too have always said that the first thing I would buy if I won the lottery is a beach house!
