I do it every so often, you know. Ratings are completely arbitrary gauges of my interest.2221 Louisiana Street.
Historical house: built in 1909! <3! Their taste in decor is...not mine, but the house itself is awesome. Four bedroom, which is precisely what we need. 8/10.1916 Stagecoach Village.
Hardwood floors! Big open spaces! If there's anything that can trump a truly old house for me, it's those 2 things. Old houses tended to have well-defined rooms and I really do prefer open spaces. Check out the walk-in shower and that awesome bathtub too. Loses one point because it's quite far from my favorite parts of Little Rock (closer to where I-430 & I-630 meet). 9/10.2704 S. Arch.
It loses a little for being kinda ugly on the outside front, but again it's an old house. Build in 1910, it's actually very large & open on the inside. Hardwood floors throughout, a great bathroom, and OMG LOOK AT THE BALCONY. The major problem here is neighborhood. I don't think this is a very good one. 8/10.3014 Valley Park.
Now, the house looks boring on the outside but the neighborhood info indicates this is where we'd fit. This is off of Hinson, up past where we always go for the Greek Food Festival. It's very near some of my favorite parts of Little Rock (like my favorite grocery stores). Furnishings in this house indicate someone with taste very like mine; there is extremely colorful abstract art on the wall, a crazy rug in the living room (again, wood floors!) and leather furniture. I love the ceiling in the dining room. Four bedrooms, too. This one interests me enough that I want to drive down & take a tour of it. 10/10.12412 Coleen
. Most of the 12 photos are of the kitchen. Boring. But the neighborhood is, again, one of my favorites. There are 4 bedrooms and bonus points for a few walls in the house being painted RED. 9/10.3 Ludington Cove.
The photos leave me thinking I might suffocate in the tiny, closed off rooms, but I'd have to look at it to know whether that's just my impression from the photos or not. I like this neighborhood; again, we fit the demographics and it's geographically right in the spot I like (i.e. 10 minutes to the Whole Foods, about 5 minutes to Kavanaugh Heights).
I'm looking at condominiums too, but I'm finding problems with that. I have yet to see a 4 bedroom condo, and that's what we're going to want: Master bedroom, Ganon's room, Office, and Room-for-kid-not-yet-established. The other problem is that most condo locations are billing themselves as "luxury condo communities" and WHOA that means expensive. Sucks, too, because a couple of the downtown ones would be perfect for the place I want to work.
Orowheat Sandwich Thins.
Picked some of these buggers up at Kroger, thinking they looked like flatbread & maybe they'd be good. OMG THESE ARE MADE FOR HUMMUS. According to the company info you're supposed to use them to make sandwiches or whatever, but I don't know why you'd do that when they are so beyond perfect for hummus. Right now I'm eating one spread with Spicy 3 Pepper hummus for breakfast and I can hardly explain how awesome it is. BUT I'm thinking these would also be awesome for cucumber sandwiches (probably with hummus), and I could see making a turkey pastrami on one, or a million other things. Peanut butter & banana or apple. Nutella would be straight up good on these. I'm thinking I could eat them toasted with stew. On their own, they taste really "hearty," so whatever you associate with that sort of thing, they'd probably go great with.
I slept last night, but I'm about to go BACK to bed & get a sleep overdose so I can stay up tonight for work. Maybe I'll take a sandwich on one of these little round things for midnight lunch. I think if I go to sleep now I'll wake up early & do some laundry & things before I go in tonight.
What wouldn't I give to find a temporary hair dye that made my hair the color it is in this icon again?
