Great things are happening around here lately… First, Lindsey from Better After stopped by and left a comment on the chair I re-upholstered. Well, a little confession is necessary here: I did send her the link to it because I was hoping she would use it for her blog, but she didn’t. But, she was kind enough to leave a comment though, which I thought was frickin’ amazing! I did a little happy dance – it was like blogland royalty stopping by to have tea, err.. or something equally exciting.
Then today, Kate from Centsational Girl pinned my chair on Pinterest… you know, this one, the one that brought many of you to my blog 🙂
Well, that just about sent me to the moon! I know that a bazillion pins get pinned all the time, but they don’t get pinned by your blog idol! I woke up the husband to tell him. I was so excited, it couldn’t wait til morning! He managed a “that’s really great, honey” before he rolled over and fell back to sleep immediately. Kate’s blog is the first one I found when I started to read blogs, and it’s still my favorite. That girl has me addicted to spray paint – and she seems like she’s a genuinely nice person too. I know that she probably has no idea who I am, but it doesn’t matter. I am still psyched that she liked it!
But then, after I posted a quick update to Facebook about that, I logged into Pinterest and found out that EMILY HENDERSON from Secrets of a Stylist on HGTV pinned it too!! Holy cannoli!! She wasn’t so blown away by the concept/idea, I’m assuming it’s because she doesn’t have to be as thrifty as I am, but she commented that she’d try it if she was desperate. Ha! It still made me smile – and wake up my husband – again – to tell him.
I’m as giddy as a school girl… it’s the little things that make me happy 🙂
Hope you had something awesome happen to you today!
