HGTV Room

Living_Room_Inspiration_10

Kev and I took a little road trip to Atlanta this past weekend, and boy did it feel good to get out and do something different for a couple of days! We stayed in Buckhead on Thursday and Friday night, but we drove out to Suwanee, GA on Friday afternoon to visit our friends, Alex […]

Design TV Update – HGTV

Room_Inspiration_After_3

Well, the good news is I didn’t have to spend Valentine’s Day sitting in a jury box. The bad news is, it’s the day we found out that HGTV decided not to go to series with our design TV project. And even though we’re bummed our pilot episode didn’t turn out to be what they were […]

Design TV Update – Focus Group

Blogger_Cartoon

Just wanted to share a quick, design TV-related update here since we finally heard a little bit about what’s going on with that right now. Apparently, somewhere in Atlanta, a group of randomly-selected folks (called a “focus group”) will be viewing/critiquing our pilot episode today. We have no idea how the whole thing works, but […]

Design TV Show Update

We spent yesterday shooting “pick ups” (little bits and pieces of footage and audio that didn’t get recorded the first time around) for our pilot episode for HGTV. And even though it was significantly chillier here at our house yesterday than it was when we shot the initial footage in Suwanee in September, we managed to […]

Design TV – Pilot Episode

Flea_Market

We’re back from Suwanee, Georgia- and the room we re-did for our pilot episode for HGTV is done! It was an exciting/fast-paced five days, and we’re thrilled with how the Morrison’s living room turned out! (More importantly- so were they! Yay!) Our adventure started on Thursday, September 8th. We borrowed our neighbors Suburban because we had […]

Design TV Eve

Secret_Camoflauge

The team is all here in Suwanee… …the iPads are all functional and connected… …my secret weapon is ready to go if I wake up to dark circles tomorrow morning… …and there’s a sweet, young (newly-married) couple with an outdated living room in their newly-purchased (foreclosure) home…just down the road from our hotel. Tomorrow is […]

How To Stretch Shoes

Rocket_Dogs_4

Remember when I blogged about the (cute) shoes that were killing my feet? Well, I’m happy to report that my Rocket Dogs aren’t barkin’ anymore! A whole bunch of friendly folks left comments on that post about using frozen bags of water to stretch them, and it totally worked! Woo hoo! A sweet gal named […]

Fancy Footwear

Skechers_Thumb

Holy cow did I get schooled yesterday! LOL! I had never even heard of most of the shoes that were recommended, but I’m so glad to have Merrell, Rocket Dog, Sperry, Keen, Tom’s, Clark and Simple (among others) on my radar now! Thank you! Now I just have to narrow down my top 10 favs… […]

Sneakers For DIY’ers

Navy_Shoes

Confession: I spend more time thinking about these… …than these: Those are the shoes I wear every day, all day, and will continue to until those faux leather straps are no longer attached to the sole. Or it gets too cold outside to wear them. Whichever comes first. (Considering the amount of money I paid […]

Design TV Casting Call # 3

antique tv

As with most design-related projects, the concept of our design TV project continues to twist and turn. The good news is, it seems to be shaping up into exactly the kind of show we’d love to have the opportunity to be a part of! And as an….uh….anxious gal, I can’t even begin to tell you how grateful […]

To Denver And Back

We’re baaaaack and whooo-wee! what a whirlwind of a trip that was! We pulled back into Prattville just after midnight on Friday night, and I had fun putting together this video full of snippets from the trip yesterday afternoon… (I apologize for the occasional herky jerkiness- all we had with us was a Flip cam!)
