That was the first word I said out loud this morning.

After reading this message from one of my readers…

Sherry Smyth has left a new comment on your post “Paula Deen Table {A Closer Look} and my new friend…”:

“Love your style!!! Found you as the featured blogger/design maven at Today’s Creative Blog! Glad I did!”

WHAT!!? (at this point my hands were shaking and I thought I was going to throw up…this is normal when I’m excited…lol.)

HUH!?..me? Wait, What?

Yes, that’s right! Kim from Today’s Creative Blog made her way to my blog and decided to do a surprise feature!!! I was completely shocked to go to her page and find the sweetest most flattering post about my blog A Place for US! Please go and check it OUT!!!

I did get a small chance to CHAT with her at Creative Estates, she called me aside and complimented me on my,face….lol…it makes me giggle! She was a big celebrity at the conference so I was happy to get  THAT one moment with her! You kinda just freeze up and forget any questions you might have, haha. I think I just smiled a lot and said thank you!         Oh gosh!


You know how you feel when you get unexpected company at your door…you clean up real fast, throw everything in the closets, and put some decent clothes on? HA! That’s how I felt when I found out she came to my blog!!  I was thinking, oh no, everything isn’t organized,my pages aren’t correctly labeled, oh and my navigation bar isn’t updated…YIKES! lol! Did she find what she was looking for?Oh gosh! OH GOSH! I’m pretty sure I had a mini panic attack among my complete bliss!  I guess my point is, YES, all those things might need to be fixed(and they will) BUT it is sooo incredibly comforting to know that even if your blog might be a little…uhhh “unorganized ” wonderful people like KIM can still find you and STILL like YOU and offer you some wonderful advice and feedback!  I ‘m just so happy that I can be apart of a COMMUNITY of bloggers that support you like a sister and offer advice to you like a best friend! As Kim would say..YEP!! “THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!!”  THANKS KIM!!!
