Last year's Advent Conspiracy video was shared all over the web. If you didn't see it, click here. This year they have a new one. Enjoy.

When we first moved in, there was nothing in the living room until we dragged down a pink sofa that was hiding upstairs in a bedroom.

For a few months, our living room stayed that way - toys in the corner and a big, pink sofa. Then my mom came to visit and my aunt donated fabric and the big, pink sofa turned into a child-friendly, eye-friendly brown.

Finally, as we approach our one year anniversary of living here, the living room is complete (in furniture.. not decorations).

A bookshelf... a couple of chairs... a toy shelf...

... some end tables... lots of plants... a few pictures... candles...

... and it is starting to feel homey and 'ours'.

There is still a bit to do. More books for the bookshelf (most of ours are upstairs), a few more pictures on the wall, a few more plants, perhaps. But, at least I feel like we have a warm, welcoming living room to enjoy for ourselves and to share with others.

Remember this room.

It has changed.

My very make-shift desk....

... has become a wonderful workspace.

After nearly a year of living here, our house is finally starting to feel "put together." Thanks to IKEA, Ebay, Freecycle and friends for making our house feel homey. Hopefully I can post pictures of our living room in the not-too-distant future.
