Here is something I have been dreaming of doing for a long time now.
Shall I explain what “it” is?
I am going to do a post that stays LIVE right here, featuring the living rooms of women from anywhere on planet earth.
Well, I had this idea, because every time a blogger posted a picture of their living room on the web somewhere– it always made me feel like I knew them a little better, like I`d love to sit there and soak up their peaceful space. I started brain-storming about how FUN it would be to gather them all up, and enjoy them together.
I thought it would also be REALLY fun to have each woman share what food she would share with you (imagine) if she were to serve you refreshments. Plus, if you are like me, you can always use new ideas of what to serve friends when hosting.
I`d love to have a picture of Y.O.U.R living room. I`d love for YOU to share it with us. No matter how humble or how grand. THIS IS NOT A FASHION SHOW. It`s not.
I want to capture the aura of you as a woman, not a show-off session.
Just send your: name, city and state along with 3 items that you would serve a guest. Also, a photo of your living room— clean or messy. 🙂
Send to: Ilovegk@gmail.com
with “LIVING ROOM” as your subject.
Now, if you read this:
Remember it means YOU! I`d love to get a 100 or so pictures to display. Keep checking back for more photos/entries. I will be adding them as they come in.
And heeeeeeere are the lovely spaces we have so far. Thanks ladies!!

This time of year I would serve chai latte and/or hot apple cider, with a cinnamon stick and whipped cream. Does that count as three? ha.. Maybe the new pulled pork recipe I have been wanting to try, and some Davy Crockett bars.
For food I might serve pretzels and warm apple crisp with milk.
we don’t eat a lot in the the living room because we prefer eating around our dining room table. but when my brother & his wife come for game night (usually Rook!), it’s something sweet, something salty & often ice cream, served with water! 🙂
I’d like to serve warm apple pie with ice cream, maybe a good ranch
pretzel mix, and your choice of hot, spiced apple cider or coffee, and
if you brought the kids I’ll serve some milk.
Food? tonight it is pan fried pork chops, southwest veggies and rice, and a salad. if you surprise me and we need a meal? I will make chili. There is almost always ice cream. 🙂
three foods i would serve….
this time of the year, and in my major ‘i’m in love with all things fall’
mentality that kicks into high gear, it would definitely be:
pumpkin cheesecake, pretzels, and hot spiced cider or hot coffee.
3 foods i would serve are coffee cake, fruit & dip and coffee w/ french vanilla creamer
Food: COFFEE, chocolate chip cookies or apple-crisp with vanilla ice cream. Crackers and dips.
I would serve cold mint tea and a cookie or fruit and veggies with dip
Three foods I would serve to my guests in my living room:
1) Veggie Pizza (I’m dealing with an addiction at the moment!)
2) Chocolate fudge brownies w/ ice cream and coffee of course!
3) Havarti dill chesse w/ crackers (another addiction)
…if it’s favorite food items then::
potatoes fixed any way
chocolate cake w/ white butter frosting
cheese – any and all kinds

“my simple living room has a rip in the free recliner, yes, a baby sleeping on a boppy pillow (illegal, i know), and a free iron burn on the carpet, compliments of my 2 year old’s explorations. but i guess my living room is the way it is because it’s hard for me to spend money on my decor and i want it to be relaxing to anyone from michelle obama to the little kids from wilmington who come from such sad homes… you can spill lemonade on my carpet and know it wouldn’t be a really big deal. 🙂
my very normal food is hot brewed coffee, lemonade, and peach delight… :)”
For food…..vinegar marinated chicken and wings
lettuce salad with strawberries
custard or pecan pie
Food: Jeremy would make his FABULOUS chicken on the grill, I would make my special home-made baked beans that everyone raves about, and we would probably have brownies and ice cream or something to go with it.
Guys Mills, PA
Food: She says:
“Now for the three food items … how can I ever keep it to 3? but right now it would be yogurt berry smoothies, FRESH salsa & chips, or maybe warm chocolate chip cookies w/milk & coffee. I am so funny but I enjoy making food that I think suits my guests … like the other night when we had homemade pizza at 10:00 w/our company :))) (Shel thought I could have served apple slices but I told him apple slices don’t always make the best memories)”
New Holland, PA
Food? She says:
“So, here in South Georgia, a beverage that I keep on hand literally all summer long is fresh-squeezed lemonade. This is a place where the heat index is over 120 degrees for weeks on end (no joke), and a cold drink like this is sooo refreshing! And, because it’s so hot, a big meal doesn’t happen very often. A light lunch for us often consists of a grilled sandwich and a yogurt parfait with fresh fruit that’s in season. Light but filling, and I don’t have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. :)”
Probably… warm box brownies and ice cream
flavored coffee, liquid creamer
Now. We are waiting to add YOU.
