I woke up this morning to an email from my mother asking me if I had forgotten to update my blog.

It made me smile. To answer her question, which might very well be the question many of you have:

No, I haven't forgotten to update my blog.

You might think that I am busy making those Pottery Barn grapevine chargers.


The grapevines still sit in a garbage can outside. However, I won a virtual Easter Egg scavenger hunt over at The Fairfield House and was thrilled to see the prize arrive by mail yesterday -- a $25 gift card to Pottery Barn!

At the time of the scavenger hunt, I didn't even know what the prize was, but I was frantically searching for the egg in Deborah's photos. I would have been thrilled to have won whatever the prize was -- even if it was a leg lamp, or a secret decoder that told me to "Drink More Ovaltine."

What can I say?  I'm very competitive.

But a gift card to Pottery Barn was such an awesome prize, so thanks Deborah!

You might think I have been busy decorating my new office nook.


Jason moved the computer in, but the walls remain bare.

Maybe I've been busy working on designing Lori's foyer?

Nope.  (Although we have made some progress)

I've been absent because Jason and I have been searching for a new house.  It's an exhausting endeavor, but hopefully soon I'll have good news!



  1. Ooh, how exciting for you! There's nothing like the hunt for a new home. I love it but my husband - not so much, in fact not at all. Good luck with the search, and thanks for popping in to my blog. No wonder you won the competition, you are obviously one super sleuth!!

    Thanks for the update on your blog(giggling).
    Now all you are hunting for another house, hopefully you will have some blogs if you find one.
    I am waiting to see the closet office finished.
    I just can't see how you will make it a office when it is so small, but knowing you, I know you will have the office in no time at all.

  3. Competitive! I like that in a person cause I am, too! Glad that you won, you obviously deserved it. Love your new office so far and hope you find a house worthy of your decorating talents. Love, Aunt El

  4. Stephenie,

    I'm glad your mother emailed you so I didn't have to! You are quite welcome for the PB Gift Card. I hope you use it towards those chargers you wanted (maybe they will be on clearance soon!) or something else equally as nice for your NEW home! Can't wait to hear about the 'golden egg' you found on this hunt!

    Your Friend,
