OK, OK, house photos just for Misfit

Here's a link to the house photos my sister (professional photographer) took last weekend:

http://gallery.me.com/jfariel#100273

And if you like her style, you can visit her website (where you'll get to see more of me!) at: www.jfarielphoto.com


Hire her to do your maternity shots and/or newborn shots! (Or if you're still infertile, like me, buy a new house so she can take pictures of it!)

My favorite part of these pictures is how my dog, Cooper, is giving the tour! He's hysterical!


And I'll leave you with this lovely image of what an almost-5 year infertile woman has to resort to:

I love it! Those hardwood floors are amazing!! I'm just green with jealousy over that chair lift! ;)

I'm so happy for you, you have some work ahead of you, but it will be just beautiful and it's YOURS!!!!!

I also love the tour guides!

Wow, the house is gorgeous! How many rooms is that?! It looks huge - and WOW it's got a lot of stairs and lot's of personality.
I love the bathroom tile. And the fireplaces are so cool. Are there hardwoods under all that carpet?
I can't wait to see pics as you guys work on it!

Sunshine said...

Someday, TCIE, your little ones will be dreaming out that attic window! I don't know what my favorite part is: the front door (awesome), the staircase, the attic, the floors, the fireplaces: can't decide :). I am so happy for you. 2011- a new beginning for you and your DH.

Have you taken a ride on the chair stair thing yet?

Ann - Building a Nest said...

That picture is too much! Cracking up!

I love the house. Those fireplaces are beautiful and that chair lift ride looks fun. You could charge admission. Is that pink room with the fireplace a living room? It's beautiful.

Complicated Life said...

that house is huge, awesome, gorgeous! The staircase is amazing (and complete with the motorized chair!!) Seriously though, rip up that pink carpet, and the staircase will be to die for. You are going to have so much fun. How many square feet is that house? It seems gigantic.

Erin said...

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! I SO love it!!!!!!!
Build it and they will come. :) Your house is HUGE!!!
And you have a husband that is handy, how wonderful!!! The floors are amazing!! I am SO happy for you both!!
Your sister is a great photographer, BTW!!!

God Alone Suffices said...

Okay, I am IN LOVE with your house! The fireplaces and hardwood floors are GORGEOUS! Wow!

I'm also in love with your dogs! :) So cute!

Leila @ Little Catholic Bubble said...

It's a dream house!! Oh, all the special nooks and crannies that your children will one day have so much fun in!!

That pic of you and the cat is so funny!

Nicole C said...

Wow, BEAUTIFUL house! Can't wait to see more pics as it progresses!

simone said...

Love the photos. The chair lift does win a prize. Instead of riding it, can you send stuff up on it? Love the dogs they are so cute. The house looks huge and cozy at the same time. Look forward to the updates.

Your house is gorgeous! LOVE the fireplaces and banister. Was that wallpaper on the bathroom ceiling? Awesome. The home is amazing and I can see why you wanted it. I can imagine it all decked out for Christmas! Nice.

Awaiting a Child of God:) said...

1) I am so jealous that you have such a big kitchen with a FIREPLACE!!!
2) Those hardwood floors are awesome. Those are what people pay bouko for these days.
3) CHAIR is HILARIOUS!!! KEEP IT! And I love how your dog is looking at you like you are crazy!
4) Love the little room upstairs with the tiny window:) Makes me happy.
5) Basements freek me out!
6) YOUR YARD IS AWESOME!
7) I showed my husband a pic of the outside and he said, wow...that is so nice! We love it!!

Ooooo, I would turn that *adorable* attic into a quiet retreat for you and hubby, a little reading room. I can just see myself there in a big armchair with a book and a cup of something hot...Oops! Not my house, is it? ;)

But I wish!!!!! I seriously love that attic. I love attics anyway, but this one in particular. And the whole house just makes me dream.

The master bedroom (the one with blue walls--I'm assuming it's the master?) is just stunning. I can't get over the windows. And the fireplaces and all the cozy little corners....I'm in love with it, and it's not even mine!

Really, this is truly my dream home. I agree with the other lady above me who said it is spacious, yet cozy all at once. We once lived (rented) in an old home that had quite a bit of character, but nothing like this.

I hope you have a blast decorating and doing it up and that you'll make many, many wonderful memories here together! I'm truly happy for you!

Oh, and is it okay if I laughed at that picture of you and your cat? I felt sad for you, but also greatly amused, all at once. It's pretty funny; so is the caption.

JellyBelly said...

Gorgeous!!!!

Can't wait to see how it changes!!!!

Congrats buddy!!!

FOR ME?!?!?

I love the built-ins, the hardware, the windows, the beautiful casements, the floors, the gorgeous finished attic, the breathtaking view of all the other pretty antique houses, the fireplaces (!!!), the arched shutters, the porch, the trim, and, of course, the stair-climber. HA!

You are a very blessed individual. It's beautiful :).

Mary said...

oh lovely!!!! love it!!! you deserve it! Enjoy :) Congrats to you and your hubby and the dogs :)

doctorgianna said...

Awesome! What character! I'm so happy for you!

allyouwhohope said...

Wow!! It's absolutely GORGEOUS! Congratulations!

Faith makes things possible said...

Looove your house! It's so cute!

Megan said...

Amazing!!!!! And I love the cat in the high chair. :) You are hilarious, lady!

Sissy said...

I cannot wait. Cannot wait. To see what you do with this house. OMG. It is fabulous! All those fireplaces and lovely floors, well, not the carpet in the bathroom. That one made me laugh. It is going to be A-mazing. And if you keep the chair lift it will be a wonderful house even as you grow old. LOL.

I am so jealous. That house is going to be great! Four floors of fabulous.

Angela said...

I will literally fall over and die if that is the only way your cat will eat ;) He looks like he's giving you the, "Mom, seriously?" face! LOL!

sweet jane said...

Your God-daughter keeps saying "I know it's not my room, but I want to put ____ in that attic room and use it for _____", and stuff like that. She's claimed the top floor for her bedroom, dressing room and play room, and seems to be genuinely worried about determining which will be which in a timely manner.

You better come up with some good plans for those attic rooms quickly, or she may claim them right out from under you. I think she's drawing the layout plans as I type this.

St. Rita's Roses said...

Great photos!! I love your staircase. Congrats and God Bless in your new house!
Your photo of your cat is hilarious!

Joy Beyond the Cross said...

The cat picture - awesome, the house pics - super cool! I echo some of the other commenters - the staircase is so neat.

Tridentine Wife said...

You're absolutely hysterical!

mrsblondies said...

Great photos and a great looking house! Congrats on the house and I can't wait to see it after you put your own touches on it.

Little JoAnn said...

Darn, my old computer will not load the slide show! I am just gonna HAVE TO buy a new one cause I must see these pics!!!

Fertile Thoughts said...

Your house is beautiful and HUGE! I love your pic.s

I laughed when I saw you feeding the cat. That's a cute picture :)

Amber

Suzie-Q T-Pie said...

LifeHopes said...

Sew said...

I want to see MORE PICS!

C. said...

Your house is gorgeous!!

Thank you SO much for your prayers, friend. Please forgive me for taking so long to say so...

the misfit said...

I want to stress my appreciation of the housing pictures. But I'm afraid that now, you are going to have to post at least one of the following:

(1) MORE PICTURES.
(2) Before-and-after pictures.
(3) An update.
(4) All of the above.

The Comeaus said...

I hope the only reason you haven't posted for a while is that you're way too busy with that beautiful new house! Really, I hope everything is okay and that you're enjoying yourselves.
