Parker’s Third Birthday in New Orleans

It's been a whirlwind time lately of traveling and doing all sorts of fun things and at the top of the list was a couple of weekends ago when my family (my sister and brother-in-law) and I headed down to New Orleans to celebrate Parker's 3rd birthday.  She is finally getting to the age that she is understanding birthdays and all the festiveness that goes with that event in  life and she had a … [Read more...]

Spending a Morning with Chip and Joanna Gaines

It's not every day that I get to do something as exciting as what happened last week, namely spending a few hours with HGTV celebrities, Chip and Joanna Gaines of Magnolia Market and the Silos.  What a surreal moment in time and an absolutely fascinating time getting to see them up close and personal.  Definitely a bloggy highlight for me! I was invited by Kilz to a media event and one in which … [Read more...]

It's always fun browsing to see what … [Read more...]

A Day of Inspiration at ADAC Atlanta

The Shaw Floors Convention in Orlando

As a Shaw Floors Style Board blogger (there are 8 of us), I have so enjoyed working with Shaw over the years and now things are ramping up even more. We were all invited to their huge Shaw Floors convention held in Orlando, FL every 2 years and it was a pleasure to get to see it all up close and personal.  It's huge and … [Read more...]

Update on House for Hope Project Nashville

I'm heading down to Orlando, FL today for a convention with Shaw Floors. They invited all of us on the Style Board to come to their huge convention that they hold for the dealers.  I'm really excited to be part of this and I'll be speaking in a session to the dealers about blogging and how they can work with bloggers in a greater capacity and share my experience with getting my flooring installed … [Read more...]
