fess up friday - freckles chick

Today's Fess Up Friday guest is a girl after my own heart. Nya, of Freckles Chick, is hilarious and we like to share many sarcastic and inappropriate comments and jokes. Anyone who can serve up large doses of witty banter and laughs is aces in my book. And she just so happens to live in one of my favorite parts of the country. What is not to love?! So Nya, Fess Up and do me proud!



Hello Little Black Door readers!  

I'm such a fan of Elizabeth & her Fess Up Friday series; refreshingly real & funny are right up my alley.  I'm stoked to be here!  On my blog, I share our renovating/decorating adventures & snippets of life with our glorious 2 year-old daughter.  I like sarcasm (even I don't know if I'm joking anymore).  I like red wine.



Hurry & scroll down to read my exciting post, just to escape that GIF!  ;-)

There are a bunch of things I will readily fess up to: I cringe at selfies on Instagram that are just digging for compliments (& have been guilty of it myself).  I think Justin Bieber might be Miley Cyrus (has anyone ever seen them in a room at the same time?).  I have read Get Off My Internets because when my blog stats show me that some of my blog traffic was coming from there, how could I not (hello heart palpitations).  I eat an entire wheel of brie in one sitting.  I sometimes check Instagram whilst playing with my daughter.  Some days, my "happy hour" starts at 5:00 pm 4:30 pm 3:00 pm.  I'm the first to laugh at most inappropriate jokes.  I curse too much & am working on curbing it for my kid's sake.  I love being active but can't commit to a regular workout regimen.  I don't understand spending tons of money on a haircut.  I'm not on FaceBook (or is it BookFace?).

But I couldn't construct a real post out of those confessions, so today I'm fessing up to the day-to-day state of our home (as others have done here).  If bloggers are honest, I think most of us can agree that if you were to rotate the camera a few degrees to the side on some of our blog-worthy photos, you would see chaos.  "Messy" is subjective to varying degrees but I think we can all agree that no one lives in a perfectly styled vignette every day, right?  If you do live like that, I'm so jealous (& also let's be friends).  My home is far from perfectly styled nor is it teetering on "hey squatters might live here".  It just looks lived in!

Look at me.....

Don't look at me!


The day I snapped pics of our clean living room,
 I just threw everything over the back of the sofa:


Awww......


Crap!


We're not hoarders.  We just like for each space to tell a story.
This space says: we might be hoarders.



Well, as long as we're clean, fed, happy, healthy & kind......I'm fine not living in a world of fresh flowers, brass/gold objects of curiosity, Domino-book-used-as-decor, fiddle leaf figs, karate-chopped throw pillows & such.  
Unless you totally have some & are willing to share :-)

Thanks so much for reading!
Thanks for having me, Elizabeth!

  3. Haha I love her, she always cracks me up, it's pretty much a guarantee and I'm glad to see that her house isn't always picture perfect - nothing like keeping it real!

  4. I can totally relate. Don't we all rake the toys behind us? I once prettied up and evacuated all toys from our TV room and took pictures. I uploaded them and noticed Pinkie Pie snuck into the picture. She kind of matches my pillows. Darn Ponies!

  9. I love when we get to see how bloggers' homes ACTUALLY look on a regular basis. Sometimes the perfection online is just too much to live up to. I love how real this post is. Thanks for sharing! :)

    1. I totally get how it is to live in a tornado zone, I mean house. Also, who knew these kids are also parrots?! ;-)

  11. You are too funny Nya! I love this Fess Up Friday - I think we can all relate!! I can't even blame my kiddos or dog for the majority of mess around my house - it's those dang projects I start and stop like it's my job! I think we all need one big virtual cocktail hour where we have a glass of wine (or G&T perhaps?) and Instagram photos of our disasters! (and selfies of course!)

  12. Anyone who has little tornadoes in the house and says they have a perfectly neat home like in the pictures is either lying or has a full-time nanny! I really want to eat cheese, drink wine, and drop F bombs with FC!

  13. we have 6 kids from 13-23 and two dogs and live in a little suburban split level (similar to a monolopy board) need I say more? Welcome to my world!!

  14. How is this the first time I realized your name is Nya and not... Freckles Chick?? I feel a little betrayed and last one to the party!
    Ok I'm over it. 😘 Love you and your wit and normal, lived in home! Also- seriously cringe and hide behind my pillow at those Insta Selfies!

  15. Oh she's one of my favorites for sure! Oh and my house looks way worse! With laundry piles, miss L's toys scattered in every room and now all things baby. It's a disaster zone. Love seeing the real, everyday messy life!!!!

  16. Loooove Nya! Another great feature Elizabeth. When my house isn't being seen through my Nikon lens its a hot ass mess! But in reality...home is meant for messes and laughter. Perfection is waaaay overrated.

  17. I am so late to the party. But LOVE this. I throw stuff constantly when snapping photos. Love FC and her wit and real style. Great great feature. Love you both.
