Hi there! My question is: I believe at one point you said that in your kitchen you used peel n stick tile. I recently used this in my Gmas Bathroom Remodel. The kind that you grout and seal. I was wondering how yours has held up?
It’s held up wonderfully! Besides the fact that there’s one tile that I cut into a tad when I was using the saw.. Totally my fault obviously, but the normal wear and tear is holding up great! We even have them in our bathroom and I was worried with water and moisture but they’re doing good in there too! I love them, cheap and easy.
Tell me more about date nights! I have been working on ideas. Need some. LOL I’ve found it really doesn’t matter too much, as long as it is time together. Simple, fun works for me.
Ohhhhh and WHERE did you get the cake??? It is adorable.
Oh, girl. Believe me, our date nights aren’t the most exciting! But we’re together and that’s what matters, you’re 100% right on that. We both really like Carrabbas and don’t go there much unless we’re childless so a lot of times we go there, and then to a movie, we love movies! Once we took a nap, mostly unintended but we laid down before we went out and both fell asleep! Whoops! Our most fun date was when I bought tickets for his birthday to see Mr. Dane Cook.. and got to meet him Love that guy! Too funny.
Or, every once in a while we’ll go to a quick dinner (Qdoba..YUM!) and then browse Home Depot and talk about all the future projects we want to do, where we want to go, day dream together. Go to a grill type restaurant with a bar and spend a dollar or two on Keno.. and never win. Then cuss out the other people who are winning. Speaking of gambling, we got a hotel room at a casino a few hours away once. Lost all the money in around…15 minutes and said forget it. We ate cheesecake in the hotel room the rest of the night.
The cake is from a small bakery in our town, it’s a mini version of our wedding cake. I surprised him with it for our recent anniversary (Aug 18th) it was delicious, yellow cake with raspberry & cream filling plus butter cream frosting. Heaven.
I also want to know how you do it all and what inspires your crafting and decorating style. I just love it!
I don’t do it all, hardly. My style has changed so much in recent years I barely know what it really is. I used to love bright colors, animal prints, glittery things, contemporary. But once we bought our house I simmered down a bit and I like light, neutral colors.
Kind of cottage meets traditional I think? It might always change too, I like the saying I heard once, I think it was from Nester? Put things in your house that you love, and it will be beautiful.
Some inspiration homes that I love? Layla, Nester, Aura, Shelly.. Probably more too that I can’t think of at the moment, I’ll keep adding to the list as I remember.
Love the idea! I have a couple questions:
-What annoys you sometimes in other blogs? (or said another way… what would you suggest new bloggers NOT do)
-What other advice would you give a new blogger?
-You’ve made a few comments about possibly having a third?!? Is this a true possibility in the future?
Great questions! Not much annoys me, I’ve heard the music thing bugs a lot of bloggers but personally, mine is always on mute so even if it does come up I don’t hear it. Don’t jump into it assuming you’re going to get sponsors, giveaways, and a million hits right away. It doesn’t really annoy me just makes me giggle. Blogging for some sort of revenue is a lot of work! I’ve been doing it for almost 3 years and I’m hardly an expert so when someone just starts out and expects to be raking in the dough, I just want to say “Slow down! Do it to enjoy it first!”
A third? Whew.. Well.. Um.. It depends on the day you ask me I guess. Last winter I went through some serious baby craze and all I wanted was another. My husband was finally on board then we went to Disney and realized how hard it would be to have a third. So we chickened out. But now, it’s starting to linger in my mind again, and although husband says he’s 99.9% sure he’s done, I’m not sure. Two is easy, would three push me over the edge? Will they just fit right in? Go with the flow? Eeek. I see pictures of when they’re little and realize how big they are, then I do want one.
But then I remember how freakishly big I get and I change my mind again.
