battle of the one-armed bandit; Dwell magazine house tour; TGIF everyone!

Firstly, let me just apologize for being a bit M.I.A. this week. We are trying to wean Adelaide off of her swaddle blanket, therefore sleep has become a bit of a sacred thing around here. Unfortunately I caved at 3am last night, and put her back to bed with both arms swaddled, HUGE no-no since she's been sleeping with one arm out of her blanket all week, but dammit I wanted to sleep for longer than 90 minutes in a row for a change! I will try again tonight, and will keep trying until she gets the hang of it and doesn't claw the right side of her face a la Freddy Kruger. Man do her nails ever grow fast.

Now as she is taking her morning nap, with one arm out of course, I can bloggy blog to my hearts content!

Ok, back to the reason and real purpose of this post....this super-fabulous-awesome-original house tour I spotted on the Dwell Magazine site this week. Oh my goodness oh my goodness, I just had to show all of you this place for those that don't frequent the Dwell site. It's absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!! Makes me want to take a drive out to my local farm kick out the locals and convert baby, CONVERT!!!!

Dwell has the best house tours from an architecture perspective, at least in my own personal opinion. I visit them often to add to my dream of one day building my own home. That, along with the millions of house plan sites out there.

I can remember when I was a kid, waiting for the Saturday paper so I could grab the New In Homes section; they always features a new house that included a floor plan. I would always dream of how the house would look in real life, decorated an all! I think I still have a rendering I did of my bedroom when I was in the 8th grade. From what I can remember, my room was coral and turquoise. Eesh. How 1985 of me. Posters of Corey Haim and Ricky Schroeder included.

Peace out and TGIF everyone. WORD.

Oh my goodness, she looks like she's getting sucked into the sofa! I hope you can solve her sleeping problems soon, poor thing.

That house is incredible! It would even be incredible with posters of Ricky & Corey on the walls ;P

I just stumbled on your blog via the IDS site. Another Toronto blogger - yay!

That house tour is lovely. That baby, even more so :) I have a 7 month old myself. Kudos to you for managing to keep up the blogging. I could do a better job too - if my little one ever napped!! Ugh.

I'll be back again. Listing you on my blog roll too :)
