Celebrity x 2~

So a couple of days ago I get a little package from Meredith publishing.


I say to myself, "Self, what do you suppose this is?"


I open it up and inside is a copy of BHG's latest issue of 100 decorating ideas under $100 with a card that says "This issue comes to you with our compliments...The Editors."


I think to myself, "Self, hmmmmm, I wonder..."


I flipped it open, and there on page 8 is my mini-mudroom with a great little write-up (and they got it right this time....beadboard not wallpaper!)


I exclaimed to myself, "Self, this is so exciting!!! More magazine-love for my little mudroom!"


And for your viewing pleasure...I scanned the article...you can enlarge the pics to read it!! (Just being a proud stage-mom again!)







And, I will post about some home staging tomorrow for sure! Anybody ever seen that episode of Spongebob where Patrick and Spongebob "adopt" a baby scallop? And Spongebob keeps asking Patrick to give him a break, and Patrick says "Tomorrow for Sure!" Yeah, well I really will post about it tomorrow for sure...unlike Patrick who never does get around to giving Spongebob a break. (Okay, yeah, it's pretty scary that I have almost every Spongebob episode memorized...I think I let my kids watch it too much...okay I know I do. sigh.)


Tomorrow for sure~

Congratulations!

That's one of my favorites, too. I love the equation from the fish couple at the beginning:
*sponge* + *starfish* = *scallop*?

As you can see I've watch my fair share, too. lol

AWESOME... I have always loved your mudroom, and I would LOVE to creat one, I have 2 closets side by side in our entry, surely I can empty one and create a mudroom, right... hahahaha considering you can't open either one without things FALLING on you...
That is my favorite SPONGEBOB episode ever!!

Shannon said...

Yay! You should definitely be a proud stage mom!! :) You deserve it!

I love spongebob - how sad is that statement.
Congrats on the magazine entry!!

mary said...

Oh, I love that magazine! That is so cool! What a clever idea! And it looks so finished, like that is just what the space was made for!

Bridget said...

That is awesome...congratulations! :)

becca said...

ha ha, I have every sponge bob episode memorized too. But I actually like the show. I don't love watching the same episode the 50th time like my kids do, but they are always humorous the first time around.
My favorite is the "Winner Takes All" episode where Squidward forms a band that is awful, but pulls it together in the end :)

Glitter and Bliss said...

You're a rock start. That is so awesome!!!

PaperCourt said...

Congratulations...that is exciting!

Pam said...

Congratulations, Wendy! What an honor! Definitely worthy of two pulications! I have all the SpongeBob episodes memorized, too. My husband loves him just as much as my 8 year old. They even have matching SpongeBob jammies. I guess boys will be boys!

Kudos, once again,
Pam

Holly said...

Heidi said...

I'm a brand new blogger (also with 4 kids) and I'm so glad I 'stumbled upon' you. Congratulations on your 'little mudroom that could'! My mom doesn't own a computer and just can't seem to grasp the concept of a blog, but she gets that magazine (she's an antiques dealer). I can't wait to share it with her.

ALVN of WhisperWood Cottage and Junkologie said...

LuLu said...

I am so excited for you! I would be on the floor in total shock! :) yea for your mudroom and you know that is totally going to sell your house! You should have a sign in your yard that says this mudroom is featured in BHG!!! do you know how many women will be pulling over their car telling their husbands they have to have a house that has a mudroom featured in BHG!!! :) I think this will totally sell your house! :)
hugs,
LuLu
