Glimpse of our office.




This is "OFFICE" week over @ Kelly's Korner home tour. I missed the last 2 weeks so I am glad to be back at home to be able to show you our office. I am sad that I missed the Dining room week because of my brother's wedding. I may have to blog about my dining room on my own because it has such sentimental value to me and I would love for you all to see it. Our office is also very sentimental because when we moved into this house, Matt's mom was also moving out of her own house. She was downsizing and needed to get rid of some things. She decided to give us his dad's desk and chair. Matt's father passed in 2005 so we really cherish anything we can remember him by.

View as you walk into the office- This couch has been with me for a long time. It started out in my family's basement, then went to my college apartment and now to this house. It's a sofabed and so I had it at our first house that doubled as a guest room. It's big and heavy so I am not sure it make the move when we move again but it is comfortable for our guest!

This is my father-in-law's desk and chair. He spent many precious hours studying the word of God at this desk. It's a great piece of furniture that we will keep in our family!
Funny story about this chair... We brought this desk and chair up to Fayetteville on a open-air trailer. We parked it in our garage for a couple of days until we moved. After we set up the office the next day Matt saw a mouse in the office! I was so freaked out thinking that this new house had mice! Ends up that Matt's mom had been trying to catch a mouse in their basement where this chair and desk were. That mouse rode in the inside of that chair on a trailer all the way from Arkadelphia to Fayetteville, then stayed in our garage for a few days and finally came out once in the house!!! Is that not so crazy!?! The mouse is in mouse heaven now!

This was one of my birthday presents last year! It's a mouse pad with Romeo's picture on it and its one of my favorite things in the Office.

The bookshelf with lots of books and some sports nicknacks of Matt's that he has collected over the years!

On a work trip to the Arkansas vs USC game, Matt ran into Nick Lachey and knew that I would be mad if he didn't get a picture with him! I love it!! And I love my make up and hair books. These books have really cool make up tricks in them.

Hope you enjoyed seeing a glimpse of our home office. I have a busy weekend and will be going down south where I will helping my MIL move to another house, attend another wedding this weekend along with a baby shower for one of my very best friends from OBU! Whoo.. I am tired just thinking about it! Have a great weekend!!

Your mouse pad makes me feel like a bad mom because I don't have a mouse pad w/ B's pic!! Haha! And I had forgotten about the Nick and Matt pic! That's too funny!
