Saturday Date with DH!


Tomorrow my DH and I are going on a date! We are going to go tour one of the Southern Living Idea homes. This particular Idea Home is located in Dahlonega, GA in a gorgeous neighborhood called Achasta. http://www.southernliving.com/marketplace/achasta-newsroom-00400000045162/
I love walking through and seeing all the current trends in design and construction (remember, I used to be an Interior Designer in a previous life!). When we tour homes like this I get inspired to improve our home and that is why I like to go. It took a long time for my DH to understand this, as he felt looking meant I wanted newer, bigger, better (translated in man speak to mean more $$$). Thankfully, he can now go and appreciate that these are fantastic platforms for improving and updating our own living space even if that living space isn't a Southern Living Idea House. If you are in the vicinity of North Georgia this would make a great road trip! Here is a link to some photos: http://www.achasta.com/media_room/photos/southernliving

P.S., my little surprise is almost ready to announce!

Oh! I know you will have a wonderful time touring this house with your DH. It's great he will go and be excited about it. Mine would not "get it!" ;)

That sounds like such fun! When I was younger, my mother took us on a home tour of a neighborhood in Detroit called Indian Village. Its one of the only nice neighborhoods left in the actual city of Detroit, and the homes were beautiful! Ill never forget that! I WISH I lived in Georgia! I'd certainly want to check this out. Have a fab time with your hubby! :)

Have fun on your date. Touring the house should be interesting to see what new ideas are out there. It certainly is a pretty design! Take some pictures to share if you can!

Still waiting for that surprise announcement...

My very favorite thing to do! I hope you had a good time. My hubby is starting to come around, as he has never understood the joy and fun I get out of looking at homes. The mere mention of "home tour" makes him sweat.
