welcome to Mildenhood, the home of Sandy & Angela, with special
guest Barbara. We live in the near west side of Chicago and love
it. We moved here in July. Let me start by explaining where we
got the name Mildenhood from: Its a combination of our last
names plus hood. My boyfriend Z thought it would be cool if we
had a unique name for our pad. We rent this place from Bob. This
building was erected in 1908 and our apartment was renovated in
2000, so everything is pretty nice & new. This is our bulldog,
hes our watch dog, ruff.
is our living room & kitchen. Heres one of my Z &
Ang original art works, we have 4 additional pieces. Everyone
loves our kitchen, the marble counters and wood cabinets are the
highlight. We dont have room for a kitchen table so we either
eat at the island or at the coffee table in front of the tv.
heres our pet, her name is Ruby. She enjoying swimming and
eating. The newest addition to our place is the karaoke machine.
Its Sans pride and joy, were just not sure if
our neighbor likes it.
wine drinkers and enjoy collecting bottles of wine from different
areas around the world. These are some from our collection, this
bottles from Spain, as well as one from Italy and Andrew
Firestone signed this other one. This wall decoration is a map
of the area we live in. San had this made and has marked all of
our close friends homes, so we can easily figure out the
best route to visit them.
is my bedroom. Its just big enough for my bed, dresser,
and all my clothes in the closet. It acts as a place to sleep,
as well as grade papers from time-to-time. This is a pillow my
mom and I made, it has patches of all the bands I love. Pretty
the hall is where I go to the bathroom and shower in the mornings.
I really like my bathroom, although I do my least favorite thing
here, blow dry my hair. I just hate it! My sister Barb also hates
the blow drying process.
is Sans bedroom, she has two closets and a bathroom in her
room, its definitely the larger of the two bedrooms. The
decorations in her room really reflect her creativity and her
favorite colors, orange & green.
in her room, San had her favorite 45 framed. Her all-time favorite
song is Gypsy by Fleetwood Mac.
the back door we have an enclosed storage area. We have decorated
it with our concert posters, weve got some great stories
behind these posters. I think my favorite poster is of Simple
Plan, we had it signed by all the band members last time we were
on their tour bus. We were going to use this area as a sitting
area, but it has become storage for our excess toilet paper, paper
towels, water, etc.
this is our garbage boy, he helps out sometimes, thanks Z. (Sorry
about the smell.)
is our backyard. We share this space with our neighbors. Its
really nice in the summer, but youve got to watch above
for the squirrels, theyre really nasty around here. This
is my car. Its a 2001 Volkswagon Jetta. I really love my
German-made car, its the 1st really nice car that Ive
ever owned. And as a bonus its also fast.
thats Mildenhood. Thanks so much for visiting our crib.
We love it and hope you did too. Sorry you tripped on the stairs.
Now get the rock out of here.
