Show us where you live Friday -- Living Room edition!

I thought it would be fun to participate in Kelly's home tour this week. I must admit, I didn't show my kitchen last week. As much as I love my house, for some reason, the thought of putting it on display is a little intimidating. But it was so fun to see all of your kitchens that I decided to play along this week. Besides, I need to work on having more confidence, right!? :o) (It didn't hurt that I already had pictures of my living room either!) So without further ado, here is my living room! This is the view from the entryway when you walk into the front door:
These are both looking into the living room from the kitchen. I really like my chandelier. When we bought the house it had a ceiling fan, but I've slowly replaced all of the fans with chandeliers. :o)
Here you can see my leopard chair, which I love. Every room needs a little animal print, right? :o) You can also see my ladder bookshelf from Target. I LOVE Target!
This is standing in the hallway looking into the living room. You can see the fireplace. We got gas logs last winter, and we're really looking forward to using them on those (rare!) cold nights this winter.
Here is a close up view of our little writing desk. I especially love the pictures of my sweet baby, although they need to be updated. These are from her newborn, session and she's almost 8 months old now!

Thanks for touring my living room! I can't wait to see your living room! If this was your first time to stop by my blog, I'm glad you did. I love "meeting" new people, and I would love for you to come back! :o) I'm off to tour living rooms now...

I love, love your white trim. I wish one day to have white trim. It give you the chance to use color on your walls that really pop.
Very nice!
