This should be fun.
First – watch this video with the volume all the way up in a quiet room…like a bathroom…or a storage closet….perhaps a cave that also has wi-fi. Sorry about the volume…we are quiet talkers…
ARE YOU AS EXCITED AS ME AT THIS?!
Seriously…this has been gestating for a long time now. Is gestating the right word? I hope so or this might get awkward. Anyhoo…Jeremy and I have constantly been debating how to do things, constantly thinking that we both have the BEST idea and that usually inhibits us from getting anything done because we are just debating for hours on end. So instead of us spending that time debating, let’s get to doing!
For those of you that couldn’t watch the video, basically we are gonna have our first ever Bower Build Off!
It’s a contest between Jer and I to see who has the best creation. He gets to set one parameter and I get to set one parameter and we must stay within those limits. When I first suggested a build off, he was like OH I am gonna build a half-pipe. I was all like z-snapping and no-you-will-not…so there is an unspoken rule (that we totally talked about) that is, it has to be useful to our lives (sorry honey – no warped walls until the boys are bigger). This time, my rule is that you have to use a giant thread spool that I scored at a local antique mall for $4 each. Jeremy decided that we had to get each project done in under an hour (which is totally unfair because he knows my weakness and time management is it).
Next week, I will come back and blog about our creations and then you get to rock the vote. That’s right. You decide who wins and who is the big fat Bower loser. I’m already practicing my victory dance 🙂
Super cute – your video had me smiling the whole way through 😀 Good luck!!!
How fun! Should be interesting to see the final project 🙂
LOVE this!!! Can I be team LJ!? Cant wait to see what you both create.. x
YES! I am so excited for this! Go team Katie GO!!!!

Oh my goodness you two are freaking ADORABLE!!!! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
This is such an awesome idea! I can’t wait to see what you each come up with! (Parameter!)
My parameter is that we get an LJ video everyday! Too cute for words!!!!
I can’t imagine Jeremy ever coming up with something better than you!! Go Katie…love it!
I missed the entire premise of the video because I was watching LJ and his milestones/face/trying to get your attention. #NoMoreBabiesMakesMyUterusHurt
It’s the hair. That’s the cutest dang baby… and it’s like he has a toupée. I can’t get enough.
Omg not only do u look like brit brit but u sound like her too! Luv it
Can I just say that this video was the cutest thing ever! You and Jeremy are hilarious and adorable together and LJ laughing at you was just the best 🙂 Can’t wait to see more.
lj is the cutest little thing i have ever seen. good job, bowers!
I predict that your effort will be very creative, and that Jeremy’s will be built to withstand an earthquake 😉
This sounds fun! 🙂
Speaking of challenges, when’s the next Pinterest challenge?
I don’t know! I will have to ask Sherry if she is up for one. I know she is up to her eyeballs in book planning.

Love this idea! And you guys are the cutest little family ever! You should totally do a vlog just walking around, talking about your life!
Jessica Isaacs says
You said parameter once when you weren’t on camera and didn’t count it. I figured if you were actually counting, you better count that one!!
I can’t wait to see what y’all come up with!!!
I counted that one…but there was one where Jeremy said it partly and I didn’t count that one because I thought that was cheating since he didn’t finish it. Maybe my timer was off and that made it look like we are thinking of that same one.

Y’all are ridiculously cute 🙂
Can’t wait to see what y’all create!
I watched the video but don’t know what you guys were actually talking about. I was just all the while watching your little cutie patootie trying to catch his mama’s attention. You know the saying – a mother is god in the eyes of a a child? It came to mind when I watched little LJ.
As for your contest – I’m team Jeremy, because he’s hot and now I better back off…
So cute. Looking forward to the reveal. I think you migh’ve missed a “parameter”, though. 🙂
Be still my heart! LJ smiling at his Momma while you talked was beyond adorable! Team LJ all the way!
Allison Cooley says
That video was amazing! I watched it while my little was eating breakfast and she had to stop and dance every time the music came on! Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!
Love this! You guys are so cute. My favorite parts are when Jeremy gives LJ kisses 🙂 What sweet parents you are!
Love this! You two are so cute! I’m always surprised when I hear you talk. I guess I just picture a much louder Jersey girl voice. 🙂

That video is phenomenal! LJ is the sweetest little thing- such a smiley boy – and I love seeing Jeremy love on him – SO Sweet!! I can’t wait to see who wins this! Maybe you will figure out a way to incorporate the Kreg Jig 🙂
You guys are adorable and I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Alastair Harvey says
Wow!!! lovely video thanks for sharing this, really i liked it.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with but…oh my ovaries! I want a baby boy, never mind I have a 9th month old at home. LJ is just so cute and smiley!!!
You should definitely NOT tell us who made what until the vote is in!
THIS IS AWESOME! And just like my husband and I! We both like to be in charge : )
Y’all are too cute!! I think this will be a fun project/competition to bring back again and again! Here’s an idea – put a bunch of ‘parameters’ on pieces of paper and put in a jar. Then pick an item to use, and you each have to pull a ‘parameter’ out of the jar. Can’t wait to see how these turn out!
YES!! This is going to be amazing :). Can’t wait to see what you create! I also think it would be cute to ask the boys what they would make, maybe do a future tiny bower build off?!
Ps, LJ is so squishy and cute!! Love watching his face light up when you walked back in the room Katie
You guys are adorable! I can’t wait to see what comes out of this! 🙂
I’m not sure which I’m more excited about: the Bower Build Off OR hearing Jeremy speak! It’s fun when we get to know your other half.
I believe in you!
This sounds like such a fun idea! Can’t wait to vote. If you what you make is half as great as that barn door you just made, you win!
This must have been the first time I heard your voice, even though I have been reading your blog for a very long time, because I instantly thought “oh that isn’t what I thought she sounded like”. I realize I had a voice in my head for you that read your articles to me and your real voice didn’t match the voice I had given you. Not disappointed – just different; I thought you would enjoy hearing this for some reason. 🙂
Yes! Photograph them both beautifully so we can’t tell!
Loved seeing you three on camera together. Oh LJ..!
