Take it outside

I'd like to proclaim a loud "Ahh Balls!" to this past weekend.  In the wee hours of Saturday morning, I woke up itching and scratching all over.  My neck, back, ankles were crawling with the sensation and I felt like I had to scratch everywhere at once.  I turned on the lights and found out I was covered in hives.  ::Shudder::  I've been dosing myself with Benadryl for the past two days and at this point, they've subsided, only covering parts of my arms and lower back.  I haven't eaten anything out of  the ordinary in the past few days so I'm not quite sure to what it's a reaction.  Meanwhile, I'll just try and distract myself with virtual house hunting.

The pale blue home below caught my eye because it looks like it came straight out of a movie set.  Picture perfect landscaping complete with white picket fence.  I mean, who actually cares what the inside of the house looks like when you've got a porch like this?  And if you fancy a bit of gardening, check out the side yard.  Or if grilling or cooking outside is your cup 'o tea, then feel free to gather near the outside kitchen complete with fireplace.  When it gets too hot, relax with an iced tea in the shaded side porch or plop into the tiny wading pool with a frozen margarita.  ::Stress fades::
PS - I must be in a blue period because the last home I posted about was a bright blue

  4. Oh, no!! I hope the hives are gone now! And oh my gosh, that porch. I'm in love. Seriously. That's my dream porch.

  5. Oh wow, that must have been maddening. I'm so sorry you were afflicted with that. Between bouts of drowsiness, I think I would have been in a foul mood from the itching...you get a pass (and much sympathy) if you experienced that.

    That's a great porch and patio.

  11. It might be caused by stress. I got an itchy rash on my body once during a really stressful period in my life, and the doctor said it was stress-related. Poor you, I hope you feel better soon!

  14. Eek! Hives? What in the world?! I hope they've taken their wretched selves and left you--never to return! That way you can house hunt with nary a scratch . . .

  17. You and I sound so much alike -- "Ah, balls." That's my favorite expression right now. Everything is balls.
    I hope you feel better soon, dear!

  20. That. Porch! And that outdoor kitchen is nicer than the one I have indoors. Might be the Ms. Meyers soap for decoration.

  23. Yikes! That is a bummer about the hives. Have you changed any of your grooming products, laundry detergent, soaps or anything like that? In high school my mom switched laundry detergents and my brother broke out from head to toe in hives. SO awful!

  25. This blue house looks incredible. I hope you feel better! Benadryl always helps when I'm itchy myself.

  26. Oh man, hope you're a bit less itchy now! I've only broken out into hives once from a Halloween candy bar years ago, and it was terrible!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh No! I hope you've gotten to feeling better! That happened to me once in college. The "doctors" at what we liked to call the College "Quack Shak" thought I had Scarlet Fever???? I decided it was best to also take Benadryl and sleep it off!

  28. Wow- I can just imagine many afternoons on the porch or having a BBQ and lounging by the pool *le sigh* :)

  29. What a truly stunning colonial house. What I'd give to live in a house like that. Hope you've recovered from your hives. My mom and brother frequently get an attack like yours and they have no idea the cause.

    ReplyDelete
  30. So frustrating! I got heat rash a few days ago (what a nerd) and have loved using this weird spray Cortizone Quick Shot. I know I sound like a schill saying this, but you know me (sort of!) and I reach out in itchiness :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  31. I hope you feel better soon! Never a good feeling to be feeling itchy and stuck in hot weather :(

    On the other hand, I love the house you've featured! The rooms are so spacious and friendly!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Fabulous house, a place of dream ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I want, no... I NEED a home like that. Mainly because of that drool-worthy backyard. But hope you recover fully from the hives!

    ReplyDelete
  34. rep to your comment: it's totally normal! i don't like bananas either unless they are in smoothies or muffins orr well you get what i mean.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yikes, I hope you fee; better SOON Rooth! I love the outdoor kitchen .. fireplace, grills, and pool area ... oooh boy .. I a ready to move it :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. That backyard is divine! The brick looks so Southern. And I love the blue paint color and the dark brown front door together, really classy but different. The only thing I'd change is the garden - I'm not a huge fan of roses. I know some people adore and take care of rose gardens like others take care of pets, but I'd rather have something a little more lush.

    ReplyDelete
  37. And most importantly - that hives story is Scary!!! I do hope you figure out what it is and feel better soon. Feeling itchy is absolute torture!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ahh Balls! I hope by now you are feeling MUCH better! :( Healthy (anti-itch) vibes to you.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Such a beautiful home. They really don't make homes likes this anymore - full of character and master craftsmanship.
    Ugh, the hives?! I hope the breakout is getting better by now.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Are you feeling better, dear? Do you know what causes those gnarly hives? This might be my favorite house that you've posted. I love so much about it. The yard and pool of course. But the blue and clean lines and that porch! Love! Thank you! Made my morning!
