I bought it soon after it came out and I wasn't even a follower of her blog (but I am now)! I love it!

Wow your house is beautiful! I especially love the rainbow of dishes on top of the kitchen cabinets!

Quick question about your daughter's bunk beds, does that convert to two twins if you don't want to bunk? Where'd you get them? Our daughters share a room and they want bunk beds but I don't think they're quite old enough, so I'm looking for beds that can convert to a bunk. Every bunk bed/two twin bed combo I've found looks terrible but I like yours!

I live in the other Capitol Hill and I'm so jealous! They don't make houses like this on the East Coast! Beautiful! I love the top floor, what fun!

We do a combo of both, I strive not to stock the fridge. There's a couple weekend farmers markets in walking distance and a really awesome farmers market that we have to drive to, which we do occasionally. We also have a grocery store about a block away, so we walk there about every other day. Confession though, we're costco members. The deals on cheese there are ridiculous!

@engineergirl, I'm pretty sure you live in my 'hood!

I love that Rose. Also Epicuro's red (the one with the blue label) is great too, came in second place at our wine tasteing party and it's $5.99 too!

We have girls two years apart and just like eleach, we have them nap in separate rooms but they sleep well together at night. In our case, the older one sleeps in our bed for her nap, she thinks it's special and is more inclined to sleep so it works out pretty well for us. Although we usually have to wait in the room to make sure she doesn't get up and play. I work from home in the afternoon though so I just set my laptop up in our room and we're set. They both go to bed at the same time, usually between 7 and 8.

Occasionally the older one will wake the younger up in the morning but usually we're good. Our older daughter is a heavy sleeper which helps.

I like that they share a room. I shared a room when I was young (I had a brother so only until I was about 5) and my husband shared until he went to college. I think we both had lots of great conversations with our brothers after we were sent to bed.

This is near and dear to me right now.... our neighbor gutted his house INTO the alley.. he had a dumpster but apparently the alley is a better place for his stuff. City says they're going to send someone out but we're still waiting.
