Keeping it real

OK, next week down here on our little acre I'm gonna 'keep it real'! I'm encouraging everyone to 'keep it real'. What do I mean by keeping it real?

Well, much as I would LIKE for my house to always look like it's ready for the President to walk in, it doesn't. This is a 'working house'.
We are in and out every day, tracking in dirt, leaves and what not. The dogs and cats are in and out tracking in whatever sticks to them.
We cook, we clean and we create, we put aside, we build..well, to put it mildly, we WORK around here. We don't live in a magazine picture.

I visit a lot of blogs that show the house all nicely decorated up and in pristine condition and that's great if that's what you want to spend your time doing, but honestly, we have much more going on then making sure the books are on the shelf straight!
Sooo I put out the challenge to all the bloggers out there who like 'life', especially 'farm' life and the dirt that goes with it. Show us the REAL stuff! (I may start as early as tomorrow..who knows!)

By no means am I saying that if your house is pristine that you have nothing better to do. Maybe that IS what you do, maybe it isn't. Great. Either way, around here, we get dirty. By no means am I saying my house is a mess. It isn't. I clean every day, but I SURELY don't do it every minute.

OK So you talking about my pristine house huh? What you want to make of it? Huh? Huh? Bring it on!!

HAHAHAHA!!!!! You posted too late. I coulda took a picture of my pig pen bedroom this morning before I cleaned all day long on it!!!!!! Let me just tell you it woulda won the "keeping it real" prize too. It was ready to get the "Condemed award"....seriously. I have a long time friend coming to visit Sat and she hadn't seen my bedroom that was added on 2 years ago. OMG I had to get it done!!!!

Seriously you don't want the real stuff from around this little farm!!!

OH yes I do!! I SERIOUSLY don't believe people live in a magazine picture..we all have our 'real' stuff. (boy let me tell ya, if we are constantly trying to live in a magazine picture we are just setting ourselves up for disappointment! I'll be posting my first 'keep it real' picture tonight! Soon as I get it off the camera!
