Last night was girls night.
First we went to the Block and Brayer event and Scout for the Home. I love all the new patterns and definitely picked up a few Christmas presents... sorry to ruin the surprise! Scout for the Home still has a lot of the Bags and Poufs and Pillows, so be sure to run by and check them out before Christmas.
Then we headed over to the Botanical Gardens Nights of lights :) It was really fun and magical. Ginny especially loved it and kept saying, "I really don't want to to be over!"
We had a wonderful time (highlighted by some apple cider with hot buttered rum), and I definitely suggest it for getting into the holiday spirit :)
Up next I wanted to show you some photos I took for Glennis Beacham's listing at 1038 Swathmore Drive. We've had a ton of activity on this house because it's laid out so well and in a price point that's really moving right now. If you are looking for a home in this price range I suggest you make an appointment to see it ASAP.
I love getting a pet picture!
Graceful arched foyer.
Living room with view to dining room and kitchen.
New kitchen with skylights and walk-in pantry.
My favorite part of this house is that you can stand at the kitchen sink and look out to the back yard...
... and it's a pretty amazing backyard!
While I was shooting the house the homeowner was using a handheld leaf blower that was really cool and very helpful for a photoshoot. When I asked her where she got it she said Home Depot and suggested I register there. Needless to say I've been spending a lot of time on the Home Depot website!
I've been a Home Depot girl since the age of 3.
My uncle Rod was building my parent's house at the time. Since I wasn't in school yet, I had tons of time to ride back and forth to Home Depot every day with him to pick up supplies.
Whenever he needed to go to Home Depot, he would come find me and tell me to go climb in the truck.
I would run through the house looking for Ya yelling, "Ya.... Ya... I'm goin' to Home Pepo (I was 3)!!!" Then I'd go climb in the truck and get ready to go.
And that's why, for the rest of my life, I'll never shop anywhere else!
Today we are giving away a $100 Gift Certificate to Home Depot.
Contest ends 12/12/12 at 12pm EST. (btw, that's the very last consecutive date ever... mind blowing!)
Gave a great weekend everybody!
