It Happened!

Well, if you know anything about blogging, then you know about Kim over at Today's Creative Blog! I know! That one! I just got home from a school clothes shopping spree with my kids and found that I. have. been. featured. Have you SEEN some of the blogs she features? They're like the Oprah (Hi, Melissa) and Madonna of blogging! I so don't belong on there, but do not tell her that.

You're not going to believe this (actually, you probably will), but I was most excited to be featured today because I was in a panic about what to blog about when I got home! How desperate is that? All joking aside, check Kim out--which will in turn have you checking me out--at TCB. I can call it that now 'cause, you know, I'm famous. Be glad you don't live with me, 'cause this girl is gonna milk this for all it's worth.

Thank you, Kim, and thank you to my inspiring blog friends. I just love this obsession/hobby.

Oh wow, let me just say that I saw your blog featured...oh...a few hours ago...and skipped myself right on over here. And, I'm in love!!! Girl, you've got the style that I love love love down to an art and you are so thrifty about it. Needless to say, I'm having a loooonley Friday night and I'm just going to dive right into your archives. Does that sound goofy? Please take it as a compliment bc it so is!!

Congrats! I found your blog on TCB and have read back through the WHOLE THING. And have loved every minute of it.

Love the pear with the bow. You really had some great ideas. When my kitchen/dining room/living room gets done and I can take my stuff out of storage, I am going to put a bow on my pear...at least I think I had a pear...been 8 months of remodeling so I'm not sure what I packed away lol. You have a fun blog.

I know! I saw that on TCB and I was like - I totally know that girl. Okay, fine. I just lurk on her blog and love her decorating style. But still. I was very excited for you. You deserve it. You've got such a great blog.

Tamara said...

I just started reading or is it stalking your blog the last 2 weeks. We live close enough (a state away, I'm Indiana) you could come over and decorate my house oh, I mean help me decorate. I love you great finds and style, how can I get you to come over and be my new best friend

Kris said...

No WAY!!! NOOOO WAYYY!!! I am SO excited for you! How cool are you NOW Miss "no one will ever comment on my blog!" I love it. If you are Oprah, do I get to be Gayle?

You had me at your first post. Not at hello though - because I don't think you wrote that. :) Getting loopy, off to bed. Yay for you!

The Rose Room said...

Hello!!! Congratulations, which is how I found you, just today, so I am not a lurker but could become a stalker!!! Have just read from your first post to your most recent post and let out many snorts of laughter on the way through!!! Love your sense of humour. Love how quickly your blog fan base went from like, 4 to 42 or something like that almost overnight! Love the 'J' on your son's wall whose name does not start with 'J' but it was cheap, but really does start with 'J'!!!!! Enough, I guess you get the general idea that I enjoyed your blog!! Rachael

Ok, I just came from Today's Creative Blog, and I'm so glad that I did! I love your blog, and after all the wonderful fluffy bunny foo foo web blogs that I visit, I though it was WICKED AWESOME that your husband kicks people's butts regularly and you take pictures for your blog. I've always thought of myself as the "Rose is Rose" type o' gal, and you now have a special place in my heart...off to read more of your blog. Janeen
