1. Find five things around your house that say something about the person you are and snap a picture of them.
2. Tell us about them.
3. Link back to me in your post so I can be all nosy.
4. Tag five (or more...or less...I'm easy) folks via their comments and tell us who you tagged.

Okay, I saw this on HolleAnn's blog & thought it was fun! I am hoping each of you will play & let me know when you've posted YOUR STUFF on your blog.

These are two magnetic boards(I love IKEA) that hang in my scrapbook room. It is a place where I can hang favorite photos, quotes, inspiration & some of the letter R's that I collect.

We have a closet that is off of the kitchen. This is where the boys display their works of art. It usually has a seasonal theme. I love looking @ all of their masterpieces.

Just a cute little plant stand that I purchased from Southern Living. I love green plants. I have to work really hard to keep them alive. Ya know, remembering to water them sure helps. The pots are painted in some of my favorite colors & of course I love the polka dots.

A glimpse into our bedroom. It is finally coming together. It was one of the last rooms I worked on after moving in (almost 5 years ago-next week). I love the little open frame/window that greets you as you enter our room. I saw this in a shop in Utah & left w/out buying it. Once I returned home, I was wishing I had purchased it. A few months later my Mom was headed to Utah & asked if I needed/wanted anything. She brought it back for me! SCORE!

One of my favorite walls in our home. I look @ this several times a day whether it is when I wake the boys up in the morning, or as I put laundry away in the boys rooms, or as I tuck them into bed each night. It represents all that I love. The pictures change each year.
This was a Christmas gift from my friend Steph & her Family. It is a magnet that is on our fridge. I love all of the cute little peas that represent our family members! So cute & fun! It makes me smile. Thanks Steph!

I have been walking on this bad boy almost every day for the last couple of weeks (min. of 45 minutes). I am trying so hard to get back into the routine of exercising on a regular basis. I am beginning to look forward to my time on the tread mill each day. I hoping that it becomes a habit.
I had a H-A-R-D time narrowing it down to 5, so you got 7. This was really fun to do. I am thinking I want to create a mini HOME album using this same concept. It will be fun to look back on as the years pass. We will be able to see how our home has changed.
Ready, set, post. I can't wait to see your photos :).

I love your house Raimi. Jealous of your treadmill. I want one but it would never fit in my house anywhere. That magnet....i need one. WOuld you really find out where your friend got it and e-mail me? I love things like that.

I LOVE this idea. I'll get to work on my 5 or 7. Hmmm ... I'm SO glad you like the magnet. It just encompasses everything "FAMILY". That's what drew me to it to begin with. I got the magnet at Apple Hill, but you're in luck, Katie. They have a website:

CUTE idea! I'll see what I can do. I love my treadmill too. If anything, it is theraputic. I just feel better when I move!
