Weird being on the other side of the coin-

It's been an event filled week around here.  After our awesome shout-out from the Washington Post Express I got the news that an interview I did a little while back with Karen Merrill Berg got published yesterday on her blog, Redoux Interiors.  As a former recruiter it is quite odd to be on the receiving end of the questions but Karen made it lots of fun.  Turns out we have lots in common (tall moms with more ideas than time) so it was actually hard to stay on point.  but we managed it, somehow!

Karen is an inspired DIY'er and is generous enough to share her tips and techniques like rebuilding this farm table and painting out cute buckets (with CeCe Caldwells paint, naturally!) to transform them into Christmas ready decor.
After basking in all of the nice comments on Karen's blog and Facebook, I got the good news that a health screen I had been sweating came back clear and THEN I found out I won a contest naming one of Cece's newest products. I was advised at this point to go buy a lottery ticket, but I feel like I have already won.

This morning brought me concrete examples of Stifel Excess. Back to piles of paperwork, piles of dishes and amusingly enough PILES of ornaments.  Mae West said "Too much of a good thing can be wonderful." 

Better get cracking before I go grocery shopping for our FIRSTfriday reception tonight.  5 to 8- stop by if you are in the neighborhood!
