I don’t normally post on Sundays, but I had a few things I am excited about over the weekend so I had to share:

1. I can’t wait to have this on a wall somewhere in my house. You know, once I change the font. And the background color. And make it into actual art.

2. I’m nominated for a Homie (is that what they’re called in singular form? It’s Apartment Therapy’s The Homies so I figured if I got one it would be a Homie. And I just like saying the word. Homie.). I’ve never been nominated before and my mouth literally did The Scream when I saw my link on there. Pinching myself. Anyway, I would appreciate your vote. So, so much!

3. I’m going to be cooking tonight. Yes, cooking. I know, I’m surprised too. I’m making them for The Big Plate party over at my sister’s house.

Tomorrow, I’ll announce a winner for last month’s giveaway too! And then, of course, more work on the stairs! Yaaaaaaaay.

Did that sound enthusiastic? Hmm. Shouldn’t. Have a great weekend!

  1. I voted for you to win a Homie since I'm using your blog as a basic “Bible” for my own DIY renovations. Seems like the right thing to do…. :) Best of luck!

  2. Very sweet of you, thank you! I am sure I won't be in the top 10 (which is what it takes to get to the next round) but I'm happy just to have a nomination anyway. It's a validation kind of thing. Just a good feeling, so I appreciate it very much! :)

  3. Duly voted for, I hope you win there is noone who looks cuter with paint on your face than you do! Good luck x

  4. I love that quote. Totally made me laugh out loud. Congrats on the nomination. I'm a new reader (via DIY Diva), and I can see it's totally deserved.
