Carla Like It Is

Are You a "Gladys Kravitz"? I Think I Am.

Just call me Carla Kravitz
That's what Alex calls me when I peek out our blinds to see what's going on in the neighborhood.  Does anyone else out there have "Gladys Kravitz" tendancies too?

Now I hope most of you out there are familiar with the Gladys Kravitz character from the show "Bewitched" but here's some background just in case...  Gladys Kravitz was the extremely nosey neighbor to Darrin and Samantha Stephens.  Gladys would often peek through her curtains catching Samantha using her witchcraft to which she would yell "ABNER!" (referring to her husband), and could never quite prove her assertions to him... aka her hubby thought she was super caaaaa-razy!!!!
My "Carla Kravitz" moments are a bit different since I don't suspect any neighbors of witchcraft... although yelling "ALEXANDER" sounds kind of like yelling "ABNER" (haha, that might be the only part that is similar).  But I can't seem to help being curious about the house happenings around here!

I think it is pretty clear to anyone that reads our blog that I love home decor and homes, especially old homes!  So my "Kravitz-ing" isn't really about being nosey with neighbors, but being nosey with the houses!  Most of my recent window snooping has been because so many homes are getting nice updates like new fences, paint jobs, stucco work, concrete, roofing, and landscaping.  I know some might be leftover work from last year's tornado damage, but it's so wonderful to see all these fresh updates! Kind of gives us ideas and inspiration for our own future updates (when timing and budget allows of course).

Aside from home ideas & inspiration, I also think keeping an eye on my surroundings is always a good thing.  I guess I am a protective person when it comes to my family, home, and neighborhood. Thankfully, I'm pretty sure my neighbors feel the same :).  At least if anyone spots me Kravitz-ing I wouldn't have this awful hair-do...
You knew there would be a silly Photoshop job in this post right?!?!

Anyway, who's with me???
Are you guilty of Gladys Kravitz moments too?
Are you always in the know about home projects in your neighborhood?
Have you ever been caught "Kravitz-ing"
Does anyone actually have a husband named ABNER?!?!

I'm dying to get the answers to these questions and many more!!!  Well, maybe not more but you get the idea.  Let me know what you think! I'm going to go see what's going on outside now, LOL!
