It’s SUNDAY and it’s a very special post coming at you! It is super rare for me to do a weekend post but this was THAT important.
Two big things….first being the show Open Concept. It’s a pilot on HGTV airing Sunday September 20 (that’s today!) and it is featuring two of the sweetest and funniest and down-to-earth sisters that I have ever met. Whitney and Ashley are the power-blogging-duo behind the amazing site Shanty-2-Chic and now they are tackling a home and building furniture to fill it! I am so excited to watch that I might rent a jumbo-tron, send all the kiddos to Nana’s house and slip into an adult diaper so I don’t have to take a bathroom break! I couldn’t be more proud of these girls if I had birthed them myself. Seriously…not only do I feel personally invested because they are fellow bloggers and KILLING it…but also feel like these two girls are just good entertainment and so good at what they do (because I know them personally as friends and they make me laugh and teach me something new every time I see them). Their show could be turned into a series by HGTV if the ratings are good…soo that means it depends on you! Tune in. I know I will.
Second thing. Also super duper important…..John & Sherry’s book signing! My dearest gal pal has officially finished her second book (click here to preorder Lovable Livable Home) and is going on tour to meet and greet all of us super-fans! That would be me….the original super fan 🙂 On Wednesday the 30th, I get to see my Sherry for a second time in one month and I couldn’t be more excited.
I found out that you have to do an RSVP for the signings so if you are interested in seeing them, go to their site and sign up now! Jeremy & I are going to the Atlanta one at West Elm and couldn’t be more excited to buy a few more copies to give as signed-by-the-author gifts 🙂
Speaking of gifts….Maxie made his official arrival in June and I almost forgot that we had a baby pool going on! It was so fun to play along with you and I am so honored that so many virtual friends wanted to celebrate our newest little arrival! A big congratulations to Rachel Bolender who won! She correctly guessed the birth weight, length, eye color and hair color and was only off by 1 day! Baby whisperer, I think yes. Rachel, please email me at [email protected] so that I can send you your prize pack!
Happy weekend everyone!
