I'm sure y'all enjoyed the tour of my *spotless* home yesterday ;) Now that it's just back to my regular readers, I must confess that I get so nervous posting my house on a blog tour! Some of the ladies out there are a-ma-zing. I know this is terribly shallow, but I'll look at some of the houses and think that my house (which was perfectly acceptable 5 minutes ago) looks like a "before" picture.
Does anyone else out there go through that feeling? Sometimes I think blog tours (and maybe even blogs) seem like high school all over again. Don't get me wrong - I love blogging, and I love participating in tours. But there's an agonizing moment or two before I click on Mr. Linky to submit my contribution.
Not that any of you were intimidated by my photos ;), but I thought I'd share a few funny behind-the-scenes glimpses of my house before and during my attempt to stage it for the home tour. Just so you don't think my house is always that clean!
When I was setting up my Christmas village in the front hallway, I could not convince BB that the road was for the villagers and not his racecars. I fear that some of the village people had horrible accidents with no medical attention. Thankfully, BB stopped mowing down the villagers after I put the marching band on the road. Now BB just rearranges them so that they look like they're drunk ;)One drawback to being an only child is that you grow up with everything being about you. Sure, your parents may try to place the emphasis elsewhere, but you're not fooled. In true only-child fashion, I was asked to take several pictures of race cars during my home photo shoot. Why would I want to take a picture of anything else?
Most of my pictures had to be taken on the sly, lest BB come running into the picture.
The photo shoot extended into naptime, which led to a rather irrational arguement about whether or not I could take a picture of this bookshelf. Why didn't I just put him down for his nap?
Since so many people show delectable goodies as part of their home tour, I decided to make something. Unfortunately, what I had on hand was the making of Rice Krispy Treats. I tried to Christmastize them with red and green decorating gel, but I wasn't too successful.
