House Envy

We live in an apartment. I feel apologetic when I tell people (who have homes) this… like I did something wrong. I am tempted to add “but we were homeowners a few months ago… I swear. Do you want to see pictures?”

But that would be tacky.

Shoot, maybe I say it once and a while.

After our abrupt promotion to Dallas, we decided to rent this year. I thought it would be a relief to not have to worry about weeding, fire ants, and broken dishwashers.

I miss fire ants.

I watch HGTV. I am usually eating ice cream out of the carton at the same time.

I visit the Lowes website sometimes… just to see how much it costs to add crown molding to a room that doesn’t exist.

I check out Justlisted.com weekly.

I miss my house.

We use to have a house. Want to see pictures?

You were quite the homeowner. You are very good at making our places look so nice. I love it.

You are lucky that you've at least HAD a house...we've been renters since we got married...

Your personality goes with you where ever you live. But I must admit those before and after pictures were awesome.

Love,
Cindy

At least you have furniture. We're not even there yet. And we're renters. So sad...

You did an amazing job!!! We just got our first house a couple of months ago and it feels so vacant. Seriously, we had 60 women over here for the RS Progressive dinner and I can't tell you how many of them asked me where I'd put all of my furniture for this shin-dig to happen. I pointed to my lone couch in the front room...furniture...someday!
