This month we moved to a new house, same neighborhood, because we like our hood, just a different house. I wanted to do a little post on our first house in San Diego. I like looking back at the one I did for the Raleigh house, it’s a nice little memento. Plus I love when people give us a little peek inside their houses 🙂 I really can’t believe we have been in San Diego for a year! It does not feel like a year to me AT ALL. Crazy! You know what else is crazy? How bad these pictures are, sorry peeps! This is why you should probably not shoot with no plan, download them, and not take a look until you want to do the post. However, I will not be deterred from posting to the internet, must solider forward 🙂 Avert your eyes if you must.
So, we are total rent-oholics and can’t stay in one place for too long. This house was almost perfect, and was very nicely and newly refinished. BUT, it wasn’t quite right. The major downsides were: It did not have a fenced in yard, and it was on a shared lot (which you can’t tell from the picture, but people lived below us, however they were nice neighbors). Basically, P decided he wanted to take a look at what was out there, next thing you know we have viewing appointments, and boom we are moving.
Here is a little look at the place we lived our first year in San Diego:
So you walk into a long open room. Living room to the left, dining area/kitchen to the right. I staged NOTHING, I just walked around snapping pictures willy-nilly, not even bothering to straighten or fluff, nor turn off the tv, or move Sam’s bed 🙂
Also, Sam followed me around as I snapped the pictures. He wanted his two-minutes 🙂
Messy office to the left of the living room.
Guest room and second bath to the left of the tv. Also, I’m treating this tour like 1950’s sitcom and no bathroom pics 🙂
I loved how open the layout out was of the kitchen/dining/living room. Lots of light too.
Almost too much light in the bedroom! A little note on the tv, it resided in the office until one sick day and P moved it to the bedroom for me, and it never made it’s way back. We rarely watch tv in the bedroom. Once in a year it was turned on.
Not pictured the bathroom and closet in our bedroom.
I loved our palm tree out front. And below is Pagie, the neighborhood cat, that always hung out on our porch and everyone assumed it was our non-taken care of cat. She was just old, she was literally feed by the whole neighborhood. Very very sweet kitty. But Eddie’s an only child kind of cat, he tolerates the dog. We did not mind the extra company though.
Well, thanks for suffering through the terrible picture taking!! At least I included some animals pictures, right 🙂
