I'm showing Dad pictures of our house because he hasn't seen it since the week we moved in and I want to show him my interior design skills. Unfortunately he says our house looks like a spec home. I'm not sure if that's a compliment or not. I mean, I do love walking into spec homes, but the thing about a spec home is that they're not supposed to look like anyone lives there. That's not what I want our home to be. I want someone to know that they are in "Todd and Tara's" home and to feel comfortable and welcome. So I got to thinking. Todd and I don't have many pictures of ourselves or our families anywhere, and since we're swinging by the Pottery Barn outlet on our way home, I'm giving myself a little project. To find (inexpensive) frames and get more pictures on the wall of the people we love. No more spec home for this girl!
