Where in the World is..


Uh, make that Mrs. Red House!  My poor blog has been sitting in cyberspace being neglected for so long.  What have I been up to?  Well, we moved into our new not-so-red house and immediately started preparing to host a couple events leading up to my Sister-in-law's wedding, including the bridal shower.  (When we agreed to host said events, we had thought we would be moving into the house a month earlier.)  

Our poor new house still had just an open field of bare dirt for the front yard, nothing like this!
It was a whirlwind preparation which included us scrambling to buy some extra furniture, me baking at all hours of the night, and boxes of dirty dishes being hidden in the basement (shh.. don't tell my Mother-in-law!)  But in the end our house was ready(ish) and a great time was had by all.

Okay, time for a vacation now!
After the wedding was over a different kind of preparation started.  Suitcases were packed and vaccines were brought up to date - we were traveling to another country.   The honeymooning couple were meeting us in the country where Mr. Red House's grandparents live.   His grandparents had been unable to travel to Boston for the wedding, as it would have been too strenuous on them, and they really wanted to see our kids, who they still had not met.  So we brought the party to them!

Over the river and through the woods, to the Grandparents' house we go!
So where were we?  Any guesses?  All of the photos in this blog post were pictures I took in that country (most of them from a previous visit).  
Where in the world was Mrs. Red House?  The winner is entitled to 100 free Brownie points*!


* Brownie points may not be redeemed for actual brownies, about which Mr. Red House is very sad.

  1. I need 3 things....1. A basement in which to hide dirty dishes...2. Chocolate brownies....3. To know where exactly on the planet you have been. It looks fab- the jigsaw garden is amazing.

    1. The basement has turned out to be quite the handy place! We have been storing all sorts of stuff there. As for where I've been... well, there shall be several posts about it!

  4. I would have guessed India as well. Lucky you - Indian food is one of my absolute favorites!

    1. I think I gained several pounds over there, the food was so good! I am very lucky, my mother-in-law makes delicious Indian food that I get to enjoy quite frequently here in the States as well :)

  5. Darn, I was hoping for brownies! Just as well because I probably would have guessed wrong. What an exciting adventure you must have had! My sister-in-law used to hide dirty dishes in the oven, which works great unless you forget when you decide to bake:)

    1. Ha, that is exactly why I don't put anything in the stove. I am way too absentminded and would cause some sort of fire or something, most likely! :)

  6. So you are all settled, and it sounds like the wedding went well...India is my guess? Or China.

  8. I see my guess of India was correct! Wow! You have been in a whirlwind! I hope you enjoyed your vacation and made many good memories. Now you can relax and paint your new house red - just kidding!

    1. Ha, I wish I could paint my house red - I do miss my cute red house! But I am enjoying starting my new garden. I've been anxious to get it going!
