Business in the Front and Party in the Back

It’s true!  This is going to be the mullet of blog posts.  What can I say?  When you’ve rocked a bad fashion, sometimes you have flashbacks.

Up front: The Business

The votes are in and I have lots to share.

Let me say thank you to everyone that voted in my very first poll.  Tyson and I are still trying to decide on the room arrangement and we thoroughly appreciate all of your input.

Options for Living Room Furniture

The poll was split straight down the middle, but you all left some great comments of things to consider.

We are living with the T-ed out arrangement for now, but we are already brainstorming ideas of what we want to do next because of you.  You guys are awesome!

I also wanted to thank everyone that voted in the Apartment Therapy Bedroom Retreat Contest.

Purple Palace - After 1

Although I didn’t make it into the finals, it was still so fun to get to be a part of something like this.  If you haven’t already, I would seriously encourage you to check out the remaining four finalists.  The bedrooms are STUNNING!  Some of them are in the tiniest of spaces, but they are packed with style.

And now on to The Party.

That’s right!  Who doesn’t love a good party?!  And I’m throwing one.  My very first Link Party.  I’m partnering up with Victoria from Victoria Elizabeth Barnes and a few of my blogging friends to encourage you to share your favorite finds with us.

Next Tuesday, April 9th, we are asking you to bring your favorite find and share it.  Simple, right?  You get to define what makes it your favorite find and it doesn’t necessarily have to be crafty or home related.  Just share a discovery that has brightened your day.  Tell your story.

If you’re a blogger, link up with one or all of us.  You know the drill.  If you’re a reader, shoot me an email ( and I’ll get you included in the party.  We want everyone who wants to, to join in.  Tweet it, Pin it, share it, invite your friends.  This is gonna be the party of the year!  Or a complete disaster… which always makes for a memorable party too.

Then, next Tuesday, be sure to check out the other creative finds.  This is a time to mix and mingle and be inspired. Leave comments if you’re social.  Ask questions if you’re curious. But most important to any good party… have fun!

So who’s in?  Have you recently come across a favorite find? Have you ever hosted a party just to get friends together to hang out? What’s the worst fashion statement that you’ve sported loud and proud?  Let’s be honest… I’m not the only one with photo evidence of some serious 80’s hair, right?

      YES! I’m a firm believer that if a naked person goes running by, everyone pretty much forgets they were having a bad time… especially if that naked person is Will Ferrell I have Frank the Tank on speed-dial, ready to go if we need him Tuesday.

    If you look closely at the first picture, you will see I was wearing my favorite shirt of my child-hood, the aqua Michael Jackson.

    I was a huge fan and would have done anything to meet him in person.

    Sometimes, its good that wishes don’t come true. Guess I dodged a bullet on that one.

      Bwhaha!! I forgot that you were such a fan. I feel like I missed out on a whole season of teasing you about that. Good thing there is no statute of limitations on sibling “love”. On the plus side, please know I exercised GREAT restraint in not using the photo of you in your midriff baring tee that you wore on that trip. Britney Spears has nothing on you!

    I’ll be there!

    And I just wanted to say that you are so lucky! Your brother reads your blog?! I have to call all of my family members regularly. “Did you see the new living room? Did you check your email? Did you read the blog post? Did you? Did you see?” Even then, I don’t think a single male family member has ever visited. 🙂

    • admin says:

      Shhhh… he’ll totally hear you! And then he’s going to start moonwalking and saying things like “In you face” to me. It’s not going to be pretty for anyone.

      In all seriousness, he is incredibly supportive and I feel incredibly blessed. You are sweet to notice. Thanks for stopping by and again for the shout out on the quirky link. I got it working and I hope you’ll still be able to join the party. Looking forward to seeing what you found.
