Homie Time

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

Well my friends I awoke this morning to very nice surprise, this ol’ blog has made it to the final round of The Homies as a nominee in not one but two categories, Best DIY Blog and Best Home Design blog.  Wow, I’m still trying to wrap my head around that!

It’s funny, I look in the mirror and see just a regular mom working on stuff in her garage or kitchen and writing about her love of home improvement and great design (it’s a pretty cool gig) and then this happens so I’d like to say thank you to each and every person who voted for me in both categories, it’s pretty thrilling.

For those of you visiting for the first time, you’ll learn a little more about me and what I’ve been writing about for three years in the About page.  My hub and I have been doing a lot of home improvement over the years – we both have that “we can figure this out and get ‘er done” attitude which has brought us this far and we’re gonna keep on going!

If you’d like to browse around, you’ll find all of the projects in the Project Gallery and various articles on decorating and design are stored in the Style Files.

You have the entire week to vote (until March 9th) so hop over and check out all the finalists, there are some really great blogs to read and discover. Cast your vote for the Best DIY Blog right here, and Best Home Design Blog here. Vote today or anytime before March 9th at 3 p.m. EST.  Sign in to Apartment Therapy here first!

Stay tuned for a BIG announcement tomorrow – something I’m so excited  to share with you all, meanwhile, we’re getting out the plumbing tools and a sledgehammer to start on the hall bathroom remodel today (woot!) I hope to have more to share next week. 

Thanks again for all your support and have a fab weekend!
