Three bedroom house
and welcome to La Casa de Regan in Geneva. It is about 45 minutes
from Chicago on a good traffic day. Me, Mike, Fletcher (the dog)
and Jose (the rabbit) have lived here for 4 years and really love
it. Kelsey joined us early last year. Our house has 3 levels,
3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a 2 car garage for our pimped out rides,
and if we do say so ourselves a kick ass basement. But you will
see for yourselves. So please come on in! Fletcher may stick his
nose up your pooper so be careful!
As you enter you will see on your left the office area. This is
where Mike works from home once in a while and where I check a-mail
and visit Dr. Odd's website. It has French doors that can close
people off which is nice when you like a quiet space to work.
On the right we have the dining room. We rarely use this room
but the paint is beautiful and bright. Fletcher sleeps here most
of the day. You will also see many of Kelsey's toys here and throughout
the entire house so please watch your step.
Down the hallway we have our small bathroom on the right. It is
painted a really cool red but it was being used so we could not
get a picture. Then you enter the family room and kitchen. We
just got new couches for the family room. This is where we hang
out and watch TV, play games, and read books. We spend the majority
of our time in this room. It is a comfortable room and we have
a great view of a wetland area from our back window.
The kitchen is where I cook fabulous gourmet meals on a regular
basis since I am staying home. Hardly, but Mike can dream. We
actually do cook a lot but nothing too fancy. It is a good sized
kitchen although I would like to put a back splash in and paint
the walls a different color. Maybe Dr. Odd could do a new series
called Renovations and then he could help do the work?!?!?
Off of the "breakfast nook" (that is what the builder
called it anyway) there is a large deck that overlooks our fenced
backyard and a huge wetland area. We love our backyard and spend
as much time as we can out there. We have a lookout basement so
under our deck there is a large patio area where we keep Kelsey's
plastic toys. Kelsey loves to run through the sprinkler and go
swimming down there. The fence keeps Fletch in our yard. The view
from our backyard is awesome and we see animals like coyote, rabbit,
deer, muskrat, and all kinds of birds.
Off of the family room are the stairs to the bedrooms. We have
3 bedrooms. The first is Kelseys. Her room is decorated in a jungle
theme and we have monkeys and butterflies hanging from the ceiling.
She loves her room. Across the hall is the spare room which is
undecorated and boring! But that will change. There is a daybed
in there with a trundle bed so we can overnight guests.
master bedroom is very large and comfortable. We have a great
view of the wetands and not to sound like a Snow White movie but
we can hear the birds in the morning. It is a very relaxing room.
The master bath is nice. There is a soaker tub, a shower, 2 sinks
and of course the toilet and a walk in closet. Mike does a wonderful
job cleaning this room. Wait, now I am dreaming.
Now the best part of our home is the basement. This is where we
have parties and get as crazy as we can while Kelsey is sleeping
3 floors up. We have a 65 inch TV with surround sound so we can
watch movies at home and of course the Bears and the White Sox.
I AM ONLY JOKING! GO CUBS! Behind the couch that sits in front
of the TV is the wet bar. We keep cold beers in the fridge at
all times and do our best to keep the bar stocked. There is a
full bath down here as well. On the other side is Kelsey's play
area and my workout room. It is actually a storage closet that
we put the elliptical machine in but oh well. It works! Then we
have access to the patio from here as well.
We hope that you city folk enjoyed taking a peek at life in the
burbs. Please stop by any time you like. We always can use a babysitter!
Or someone to cook and clean for us. Now get outta here!!!
