Hahah!!!! Did you like my little rap!!!

I just have to start by saying THANK you to everyone who watched the show today!! SO thankful for you all and so happy to have you share this adventure with me! To the newcomers I just want to say WELCOME! So happy that you stopped by and said HI!!

If your new here you can read all about me and my little old blog by clicking the about me tab at the top. There you’ll find some photos of my hubby and my three babies:0) You’ll also find out why I blog and what this whole thing is all about! At A Place for Us I’m super laid back so you wont find me spamming your inbox or tweeting you all day about a painted wall…ok maybe sometimes:0) But for the most part you will see me just sharing my biggest passion and that is making a home for my family! Tons of DIY projects( just call me the project chick..ha!) ..occasionally I will make a craft, otherwise I’ll just be talking to you about my crazy life:0) I’m so glad you’re here!

If you would like to hear about my FIRST trip to the BIG apple and about my entire Nate Berkus Show experience you can read about it here.

Oh and if your looking for those projects I shared with that cutie pie Nate, no need to worry…..

 

My brown paper flowers were a Pinterest sensation!!! I don’t know the exact number but its been pinned over 8,000 times. If it looks like something you would LOVE to try check it out!

  28. Hi, I too just saw you on the Nate Show. I loved your house tour and the things you showed us on Nate, so decided to find your blog. You’ll probably get a LOT of subs from doing the show. Maybe he’ll have you on again, like he did/does with Mr.Goodwill Hunting. You did an amazing job. I’m glad I’ve found your blog.

  29. I’m so bummed, I missed the show; but I know I can watch the episode probably next week on the internet. I just love your enthusiasm & spunk, so I know you did a wonderful job on the show. Kudos to you!

    I saw you on the show, and I just love your blog and projects. I’m a diyer, myself, and while I’m pretty good at the actual construction, I am terrible with the design/color selection aspect of it, so I love reading through all your ideas! :)
