1. How many mirrors do you have in your home? -- I dunno.  At least 6. One in each bathroom (3), plus a full length in my room and The Girl's room, and a small one in The Girl's room. I'd have to search to see if there are more.

2. Anything you are looking forward to this week? -- Getting some relief from this stupid ear infection. Oh, and meeting my BFF and her dh for shopping and dinner on Sat.

3. Grass in your yard, real or sod? - sod isn't real?  Huh. Didn't realize that.   We have mix of about 340 different kinds of grass and 2345 kinds of weeds. It's a very green yard - but not particularly grassy.

Six

2. Anything you are looking forward to this week?

Hair appointment tomorrow, doing some hard core cleaning, decluttering & organizing now that the kiddos are in school again.

3. Grass in your yard, real or sod?

Uh, sod is real grass--it just comes in strips. In any case, I have no idea if this yard was seeded or sodded as it was here when we bought the house...

I had to count by bathrooms, too. One in each (four) and then one full length in my closet and one in DD's room. Just remembered the one over my dresser. So 7, not six. My bad. Oh, and one over the guest room dresser. So 8. None in DS's room though...

ACK! Forgot the antique mirror over my buffet in the dining room. So we're up to nine. But clearly I don't spend much time looking at or in them...

Good question, I really don't know.  One in each bathroom, one in DD1's bedroom.  A large decorative one in the living area.  Not really, a baby shower my girls and I are going to this weekend will probably be the highlight, Lol.  Real?  A lot of Houston grass is sod which feels more artificial than the grass on the other side of the country.  When our property got damaged by Ike we filled a lot of the spots with sod, it's different than laying straw and letting real grass grow back.

Not sure how it feels artificial - since it is REAL grass.    Turf? That's artificial. Sod? Nope.

1. 6

2.  Not really.

3.  Sod is real grass so do not really understand the question. 

   Most of the grass was here when we moved in so do not know how is started.  We seeded in the back yard  when we took our pool down, we also seeded when we got dirt added to our front yard to raise the level.   When the city tore up our yard to replace the water lines, they put sod down on where they damaged the yard.

Yes, sod IS real grass but it is not something you grow yourself and it is usually quite obvious the look of sod (to the poster/s who are unsure what they have). At least where I live, you can definately tell the difference.

1. How many mirrors do you have in your home?

Oh, I don't know.  Let's see...2 in bathroom, my dresser, an antique one that belonged to my great-grandmother and still hasn't found it's rightful spot at the new place...I am fairly sure I'm missing something, but I can account for 4.

2. Anything you are looking forward to this week?

Getting this proposal done and out of my face.  

3. Grass in your yard, real or sod?

I don't know...it was there long before I was.
