Almost Game Time - A House Meme

Paula has this on her blog and I thought I'd share it. It's almost game time so I'm off to watch it. I'll be back later.

My House Meme

What kind of soap is in your shower: Coast shower gel and NutraOil shower gel for extra dry skin.

Do you have any watermelon in your refrigerator? Nope. I don’t care for watermelon.

What would you change about your living room? In our new condo we are going to finish off the basement into our living room/media room, so I guess we’ll be changing a lot.

Are the dishes in your dishwasher clean or dirty? Dirty right now, but it will get run before the end of the night.

What is on top of your refrigerator? There’s a cabinet above the fridge. In the cabinet are light bulbs, a punch bowl and all the paperwork for the appliances in the kitchen.

What color or design is on your shower curtain? Our shower curtain is Ralph Lauren teddy bears on a blue and white striped background.

How many plants are in your home? None right now. When we move I want to have a windowsill herb garden.

Is you bed made right now? Nope, but it is covered with clean laundry waiting to be folded.

Comet or Soft Scrub? Soft Scrub

Is your closet organized? Yes. I can’t imagine having a closet with an organizer in it. Putting organizers in the closets in our new condo is a top priority.

Can you describe your flashlight? Big, sturdy and blue.

Do you drink out of glass or plastic most of the time at home? Glass for breakfast and plastic for dinner. I can’t explain why, I just do it that way.

Do you have iced tea made in a pitcher right now? Nope. I seldom drink iced tea, even in the middle of summer.

If you have a garage, is it cluttered? We don’t have a garage and won’t have one in the new condo.

Curtains or blinds? We have custom blinds in our living room, sheers in the dining room and bedroom. In our new condo we will have custom window treatments in the dining room, kitchen, living room and master bedroom.

How many pillows do you sleep with? There’s three on my side of the bed, but I generally only use one.

Do you sleep with any lights on at night? No lights, but I can’t fall asleep without the radio on, preferably sports talk radio.

How often do you vacuum? DH vacuums about once a month, not nearly enough for me.

Standard toothbrush or electric? Standard toothbrush, although the dentist keeps telling me to use an electric.

What color is your toothbrush? White and purple.

Do you have a welcome mat on your front porch? We currently use three. One right in front of the door and two next to the door for shoes.

What is in your oven right now? I just finished making chicken wings and will start taquitos in a few minutes (Can you tell it’s Super Bowl Sunday?)

Is there anything under your bed? Yes, DH’s overnight luggage and my exercise step.

Chore you hate doing most? Dusting the wood blinds.

What retro items are in your home? I have a doll quilt my grandma made and a set of silver teaspoons from my mom.

Do you have a separate room that you use as on office? Does my studio count? There is an office corner in it.

How many mirrors are in your home? Three

What color are your walls? In this condo the living room is mocha, the dining room and kitchen are pumpkin, the hallway and entry way are a lighter shade of pumpkin, our bedroom is blueberry yogurt, the bathroom is sky blue and my sewing room is manila folder. I have no clue what we will be doing in our new condo.

What does your house smell like right now? BBQ Chicken Wings

Favorite candle scent? Lavender, a wonderful scent to relax by.

What kind of pickles (if any) are in your refrigerator? Dill pickle spears. DH can’t have a sandwich without one.

What color is your favorite bible? Maroon

Ever been on your roof? Nope.

Do you own a stereo? Yes. We have a small stereo.

How many TVs do you have? Two now, but we will have four in the new condo. The new condo is three floors. We have a 50 inch HDTV for the media room and a 27 inch TV in the bedroom. We will be adding a 19 inch TV in my studio and one for kitchen area in the new condo.

How many house phones? No land lines, only two cell phones. No telemarketing calls that way.

Do you have a housekeeper? No, but I think it would like one since we work 60 – 65 hours a week. Sometimes we are too zapped from work to think about cleaning. Luckily with only two of us there is never a big mess, so we do try to keep up with the daily chores.

What style do you decorate in? Comfortable and eclectic with bold colors and dark wood.

Do you like solid colors or prints in furniture? I prefer tone-on-tone prints. We do have a sleeper loveseat with matching ottoman that has a golf design.

Is there a smoke detector in your house? Yes, one in every room. With new construction you can’t get through the inspection without one in every room. The new condo is the same way.

In case of fire, what are the items in your house which you’d grab if you could only make one quick trip? My DH and my laptop.

This meme is so fun to read and get to know everybody's homes better. Love that quilt you pictured. Does it hang on your wall?
