It’s time for the monthly visit.
Not that monthly visit. I would never talk about such a thing. This is a blog for mature and refined people. Not people that find their minds inadvertantly doing the breaststroke in the gutter. And stop giggling at the word breaststroke.
This monthly visit is the one where we review all the stuff we revealed in the last month. Sortof like Bower Power cliff notes…
- Kitchen light & bench before & after
- Getting my Ana White on with bench-building
- Our shell sconces get the boot
- Updating that weirdly labeled back door entry area
- Dreaming up an orange living room
- The Basement is ALIVE! err…A-LIT!
- Beware of our creepy candy table
- Gluing rocks together has never been so fun
- Our porch got Halloweenie-fied
- Webster the pumkin and his rug
FAMILY & FRIENDS POSTS:
- He’s Bringin’ Puffy Back
- Watch out Tiger Woods
- Playing with the new neighbors
- Celebrating four years of marriage (here’s how we partied!)
- Our new family fun list for fall
- Will’s ghostly holiday cards
- My wanting-to-be-pregnant letter
- Will gets a sweet taste of fame (and a sweet taste of pumpkin bread)
- BFF memories

PHOTOGRAPHY & DESIGN POSTS:

- Fun Military Family photoshoot
- My little sister’s engagement shoot
- Tips for photography props
I like to shoutout to my sponsors each month…after all, they are the muscle behind this here operation (well, besides my boytoy’s raging biceps). And I am proud to say that I would purchase stuff from any one of these stores – check them out by clicking on the photos…after all, Christmas is right around the corner and nothing says love like an email to your hubster with a link to one of these products and a title line of “WANT FOR CHRISTMAS!”
First up – P.C. Fallon Co. – they have these bags…Spartina…amazing. Functional and stylish. They totally would look rockin’ with a pair of boots. And they offer a ton of other brand name bath & body products, home fragrance, bedding, kitchen, and gifts. Oh and p.s. – their newest line is Archipelago Botanicals. Here is the link for Archipelago Bath & Body and here is the link for Archipelago Botanicals Home Fragrance ….so fancy it would impress my mother…and she is not easily wooed.
Evgie Nev is one amazing decal shop. Perfect for those soon-to-be moms who want to have their nurseries look special without a ton of work – slap one of these gorg decals on the wall and welcome your little one home in style. So cute it’s ridiculous. Oh and if they ever outgrow it, well, it’s a decal…just peel it off! Plus, you get 10% off with the code ‘bpblog’ so all the more reason to shop 🙂
I have a serious love affair with my Scentsy burners and bricks. It’s a borderline problem. Well, it would be if Jeremy wasn’t equally infatuated with them. They make my home smell, well, like I want it to…not like the funk that was left here for us. And they have their Christmas scents out. CAH-RAZZZY. And don’t forget to get a Scentsy Buddy while you are at it – you know, for the little people in your life that tend to make a room smelly 🙂 I want Ollie the Elephant so bad it hurts.

My own brother – yup, he’s a master plumber supporting my hopes and dreams of being a blogger with more than ten readers 🙂 This link is to his facebook page which has his number and if you are in the greater Birmingham area, he’s honest, affordable and hilarious…more so than me. He’s actually funny in person. Plumbers crack optional 🙂
