10 Pictures

Mother of the Wild Boys tagged me for this. And all I have to say is: Thanks. A. Lot. Okay, just kidding, because it's kind of fun! Kind of being the operative words. However, the humiliation might actually make me clean something! We'll see.

Here's the Tag: Take a picture of the following 10 things (immediately! No cleaning first!), and then tag 5 people to do the same on their blog. I actually took these pictures yesterday (Tuesday), so maybe my home looks better now. Maybe.

#1. Your Kitchen Sink

(It's kind of blurry --sorry! I'm not sure if that is from the photo or the grime...)

#2. The inside of your fridge:

(If you look closely to the bottom left, you can see #4's head as he races quickly over to the open fridge in excitement!)

#3.Your favorite shoes:

(I bought these shoes on sale at Old Navy after Christmas. They are my favorite because they are comfy, cute, and versatile!)

#4.Your closet

(I had to post three pictures because this is what we are living in. Remember all those Master Bedroom renovations we talked about doing? Yeah, well, obviously we haven't started yet. So, our clothes are kind of here and there and in boxes and the closet and...well...you get the idea. Notice the hanger formation hanging from the closet? That was #3's creation. He is an artist, dear reader!)

#5.Your laundry pile:

(No explanation needed. I hate laundry.)

#6. What your kids are doing right now:

(#1 was at school, #2 was at a friend's house, #3 was close to sleep whilst-a-watchin' Sesame Street, and #4 was laughing and following me around the house while I took pictures.)

#7. Your favorite room in the house:

(My favorite room is the kitchen/living room/dining room. This is my kitchen desk where I spend most of my time. It's full of books, papers, and the laptop. I love it because I can be doing important things (ahem, blogging) and still be at the center of everything; my kids always know where I can be found!)

#8. Your Toilet:

(Maybe I should empty the garbage can??)

#9. Fantasy Vacation:

(Honestly, I want to travel the entire world. There are so many places I want to visit; Peru, Italy, Thailand, Australia, India, Uganda, Turkey, Norway, etc. But England is #1 on my list, and has been since I was a little girl. I'll get there one day! And hopefully spend many, many blissful weeks romping about the country.)

#10. Your Self-Portrait

("I wonder if anyone will stop reading now that they've seen how I live in squalor...Hmmm....")

Five People I Tag:
Amanda, Jamie J, Julie, Bythelbs (yep, you read that right!), and Janelle. If you would like to participate, you are more than welcome to do it! Just let me know so I can see your pictures...

This is a fun one but I am not sure that it will be fun when I take my photos...

Thanks, Cheryl. Really.

Grandma Rozla said...

What a happy home you have! not to mention how totally CUTE #4 is!!!!!!

Kelly A. said...

That's not squalor. That's just living. I love the hanger formation. That kid's and artist! I'm glad you pointed it out, love stuff like that. See living your life!

And the baby scooting for the open fridge, they have some kind of radar don't they?

Jamie J said...

Ah, thanks! Hey your hose doesn't look too bad! Stinks about living your closet out of boxes still though.

Susan M said...

I'm so glad you didn't tag me for this! You're so cute Cheryl.

Janelle said...

I did it! Messes = People live there. Thanks, my goal today just happened to be for loads of people to view my laundry pile. Now I can check that one off the list.

Check!

Lizzie said...

Cheryl, I see the solution to your laundry problem: your hamper is too small! I've got one of those big carts that has three compartments, and I can easily fit that many clothes in there, and then some, and have it looking neat and organized and as if I'm totally on track with my laundry. It's all about perspective... go get a bigger hamper! You'll feel better!

bythelbs said...

Is there a deadline for this? Do I have time to clean my sink, closet, fridge, toilet, kids, self? Ah gees.

Becky said...

This, this is why I don't blog. Hahaha, kidding! At least you can blame the messes on kids and moving. Some of us live in clutter with no excuses. ;)

Cheryl said...

Ah, but Becky, you have a cat! Blame the cat. :)

Mother of the Wild Boys said...

Oh Cheryl, now you are even more dear to my heart. Thanks for being a good sport, you're the best!

Amber said...

So glad I wasn't tagged. I would especially hate to broadcast the current state of my closet. I think there are clothes burried somewhere in there....

FluffyChicky said...

I'm glad that I am not the only one who lives up to their eyeballs in filth. :)

Love the self-portrait. :)

Janelle said...

Cheryl, I posted some more realistic photos on my blog. You just happened to ask for photos of clean places. I think you'll enjoy these photos much more....

Leslie said...

Phew...aside from all the craziness of the party planning/executing...I just don't think I could have handled this tag...I loved...loved...loved seeing your house...no not squalor...this is what we call, life with children and husbands...or just life.

P.S. Love your self-portrait...you are one hot mama!

Julie said...

I did it. And I really like Lizzie's idea for the laundry baskets. And the cleaning fairy came yesterday, so life is looking more decent around here than usual...
