The Urge to "Nest"

southern style home

If you didn't already know, or haven't already realized, Aaron and I have been living with my parents since we got home about a month ago... and I know, we're a newlywed couple and everything but I promise, it's really really fun!

However, every time I come home for the off season (which has only been twice, but still) I get this overwhelming "itch" to have our own little home. You might be thinking, "Well you could rent a little house while you're here..." But you see, renting a little home in Fairhope, Alabama is not exactly the most affordable option when it's only for a few months in the middle of the year... not to mention the thought of moving two times in five months makes me want to hurl.

Oh wait, I just did that!

So we are living it up with Mom and Dad and I have NO reason to complain! They are so generous to let us live with them, eat all their food (Don't worry I cook!), hog two spots on the couch, hang our huntin' boots dry on Mom's decorative home lanterns, etc. Gosh, we are so thankful for them.

FYI: these are not pictures of my parents' home... Theirs is beautiful though!

Buying/building a house will be in the near future I think... {I hope!} and Mom and Julie and I toured the "Parade of Homes" in Fairhope today and boy did those model homes get my wheels a turnin'!!

These are some random home photographs I have saved off of various home websites that I am obsessed with... None of these gorgeous rooms {mostly kitchens :) } are anywhere near our budget but a girl can dream can't she?? KEYWORD: DREAM

And mind you I have been thinking of my husband too...

In his WILDEST dreams would our home ever look like this... It is beautiful though.

In my WILDEST dreams would our huntin' camp ever be this luxurious.

So anyways, I just thought I would show you some "eye candy" today... I drool looking at these homes do you?

I am content where we are with our crazy, roller coaster life and all {really and truly, I WOULD NOT HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY} but I do believe I have a God-given desire to make a home with my husband and one day, raise my little chicks in our nest, but until that glorious day comes, I will be content in my current circumstances AND adore looking at other people's dream homes.

Am I weird???  Please tell me I'm not!

I will be back soon people with some "real life" photos next time... Until then folks!
