House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

A Brick Colonial House Tour!

We all have fantasies...of our dream houses. My dream house fantasy usually includes the Father of the Bride house (colonial style rocks my socks) or the Something's Gotta Give House (white kitchens with black countertops make me swoon). 
You can imagine how my heart sang when I was asked if I wanted to tour this 4 bedroom, 5 bathroom brick colonial beauty! 

I usually stalk tour houses of my friends and neighbors. I admire all the ways that they have made their houses into homes specific to their families. 
I had never been in this home nor did I know the homeowners. I had no filter to see this house through other than my own. The homeowners had already moved out which allowed me to see each room with fresh eyes. 
Seven seconds into the tour, I was mentally arranging my own furniture and life into this house! 
Here is a lookiloo at 4757 square feet of pure awesomesauce...

This is where I would yell at my second born for sliding down the banister...again!


This is where I would listen to my mister grunt and curse me under his breath while putting up the Christmas tree.
This is the dining room where I would tell inappropriate jokes to our friends and family.




 This is the sink that I would stand at while fretting that our children are going to hell in a hand basket growing up too fast.

 This is where my gal pals and I would sit with booze coffee and make each other laugh until we shouted "STOP! I'm going to wet my pants!"

 This is where I would my husband would make very healthy dinners.
This is where I would watch my children fight play outside.
 This is where I would finally have space for my book collection. You know what won't be here? 50 Shades of Smut!
This is where I will forget to shave my legs wind down each night.
This is where my kiddos will sneak out as teenagers leave their baseball cleats in an orderly fashion.
This is the part where you buy this house for me?

  6. This is gorgeous! We're in the southwest and its all stucco and red tile roofs. Blech. My dear friend is moving back east and they bought a colonial, so jealous. Not an inch of stucco in sight for her now! Thanks for the tour!

    1. While the stucco and red tile look is beautiful, it never lights a fire in my belly. Did you grow up in the southwest?
