Welcome to our Humble Abode

Since we moved back in the mainland, I haven't been to our home yet. So I asked my husband to take us there, the day before Christmas. So bracet out folks, I'll give you a little tour to our humble abode. We might not have beautiful and Modern Furniture but we certainly love our home. Our household goods won't arrive until the second week of January so our house is still naked hehehe.

Let's start with our doormat. I bought this online.

The foyer/entrance door.

My sister-in-law left her present for us here and we just had now the time to open and see it. Thanks Chris, we love it!

Our Master's bedroom.
The kids' room.
They only stayed there for minutes but look at the mess they already made lol.
Our living room.
The heart of our home.. the kitchen.

This is originally a bedroom but the former owner of the house converted it into a dining room. We will be converting it back into a bedroom since our kids are getting big.
My sister in law made these working bench and table for the kids.
My not-so-in-the-mood son..
The big painting was given to us by the former owner and the small one was given by Dad.

The birthday gift that Tita Chris gave EJ last year, we opened it and Rylie was so thrilled more than EJ.

Ahhhhh I miss my comfy sofa.

Our basement..
Alrighty guys, that's it for now. Thanks for dropping by.

  26. Nice to see you peeped in at my site. Am happy for that.

    No matter what naman what's inside your house, although your furnitures worth millions but the residee´are "kwago" naman? di bale nalang na bahay kubo as long you can call your own. That's important.

    I been leaving in Europe for almost half of my life, with 2 kids (24 & 17) I never looked the material things. Of course, some are well ??? alam mo na, hirap bitawan ang words, so basta ýon na.

    Your house will be a wonderful home when everything will be in place. I sense that naman. Pinay pa? sus me...

    Hope you have a wonderful day and a bountiful NY to come.

    Chicka2x again soon.

    xoxo to all...

    greetings from the freezen´ Stockholm

    have a good start of the year Rose...
    with hugs...

  28. I always motivated by you, your thoughts and way of thinking, again, thanks for this nice post.
