By far my favorite project, the one that had me perched on the edge of the couch every day, was this house in Minneapolis:
Yes, I took this picture. Cause yes I went there.
The whole way up to Minnesota I was hoping to be able to find this place. Then one day while we were in Minneapolis, a guy who will go to church with us was driving us around so we could get to know the city better, and all of a sudden we came around a corner and I saw it. I started shrieking from the back seat "That's the house!!! Holy crap, that's IT!!!!" I made my husband find our way back to it the next day so I could get out of the car and take pictures.
And oh, is it glorious.
No one is living here, by the way, which is why I was able to run all around the outside, taking pictures and peering into the windows like a psyco. I kept hoping the neighbors wouldn't come out and yell at me.
This is my attempt to get a picture of the living room through the front window. Not a very good picture, but you can kind of see inside...
The house has been staged to try to help it sell, so it's decorated a little and looks pretty. It was killing me that I couldn't go in.
I love all the pretty window boxes on this house.
This one is above the front porch:
I'm pretty sure these are the original light fixtures. I remember an episode where Nicole was trying to clean them up. I love that she keeps as much of the existing fixtures as she can.
A pretty side door
And of course I had to get MY picture with it, just to prove I was there.
It's probably so lame, but I seriously felt like I was meeting a celebrity by being at this house! I almost felt like I should go up to it all shy and be like, "Hi gorgeous house, I'm such a fan! I watched you every day..."
I don't care if you think I'm weird. That house is seriously pretty and I'm thrilled I got to have my 15 minutes with it!
