Spring greetings all, it’s going to be a sunny weekend according to the weatherman and I can’t wait to soak up some sun. Today it’s time for another round of ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ and Amanda and I have gathered up our favorites! First a few stunning kitchen makeovers from the week…

Ugh, you guys I’ve spent the past 48 hours fighting off another cyber attack to the site, this is never fun. So many of you wrote to me, thank you for your concern. Long story short, there are sophisticated evil hackers out there, and it takes A LOT of work to defend yourself. Thanks so much for your patience!

It’s time again for another round of ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ with many inspiring ideas to share! My thanks as always to Amanda who helps me scour the web for all the talented projects, enjoy the roundup:

What are your plans for St. Patrick’s Day weekend? With an Irish heritage, we will be cooking a full corned beef with veges and pints of beer traditional feast. It’s one of my most favorite meals of the year! The weather here is absolutely divine, so we are off to spend some time outdoors this weekend too. It’s ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ day again, and Amanda and I rounded up our favorites to feature, enjoy these inspiring projects and spaces!
