totally. awesome. weekend.

Why does this weekend qualify as totally awesome? Well, because…

Road trip with the TBBs I can’t begin to tell you how much fun these ladies are. I’m so lucky to have them as my friends (along with the four TBBs who couldn’t make the trip to Toronto). Thanks Sonya & Maureen & Donna for the laughs, show tunes, tap dancing, Billy Jpel, and helping me find my inner Sherlock Holmes.

BlogPodium I thought the inaugural BlogPodium back in January was great – BlogPodium #2 exceeded all expectations! The wealth of information, meeting the awesome vendors & sponsors, chatting with blog friends, and the overall energy in the room were just amazing. A huge THANK YOU to everyone who made the afternoon such a huge success, especially Jen at Rambling Renovators and Lindsay at Little House Blog for organizing this great event. I’ll share what I learned about the business of blogging soon – too tired tonight to do much typing!

I’m on the Crew! I’m one of five bloggers selected to be on the PARA Paints Blog Crew! WOOT!


I cannot tell you how excited I am! Well, if you’d seen me jumping up & down when my name was announced, you might have a small idea ;-) This is such an amazing opportunity to work with a great Canadian company to imagine, design, and create some serious room makeovers. Starting with the BAZINGA workout area in the basement that I posted about here using this bright & fun colour palette…
