corners of my home

so i've been thinking about blogging and why i blog and the apologies that people always put on their blogs about lack of updating and blogging and how boring their blogging is and blah blah blah. (no apologies people!) i decided that the reason i blog and have always blogged is to keep in touch with my family and friends. this is why i started. specifically, i started to keep up to date with my family and friends that live out of town… most specifically, my parents, sister, cousins, aunts, uncles and extended family (both karl and my own). blogging just makes me feel closer to all of our friends and family - knowing that they know what is going on in crazy Arkansas even if it is some silly post about a crappy day at work. And it has put me in touch/kept me in touch with many people I probably wouldn’t otherwise interact and I adore that. I don’t mind if strangers or lurkers read the text as long as they don’t expect something revolutionary or INCENDIARY to be said. (not sure I am using that term correctly; I mean firey/controversial – is that right? I stole it from the movie Almost Famous when William Miller tells Russell Hammond Stillwater’s music is INCENDIARY)

ANYWAY, my point IS I am starting (attempting) a new tradition on my blog. Feel free to join me if you like. On Fridays. I will be posting a “corners of my home” post with little snippets (and pictures of course) of one little thing or area in our home that makes me happy. It can be as small as an apron or a cute teapot in your kitchen or as large as a wall (with new paint or a new picture perhaps) or something you created (like this). I am choosing to start with my fun Target bed spread in my green guest room. It makes me happy and is this week’s corner.

Also the CRAZY BRIDE story (see below video) made the Today Show, Jay Leno, and GMA. Almost 3 MILION hits on YouTube – probably over that now. It was staged by some girls in Canada! But the hair cutting was real. Click HERE to see the interview.

I think the corners of your home idea. Very fun. And I like the green-ness, too!

I just saw the parts of the GMA interview and it made me think of you! I KNEW it was fake. I mean, who tries to comfort their friend by telling them they look like Shirley Temple?!?

Oh, I love the green walls. Awesome color. Can't wait to see more of your house. What a great idea! I'll be looking forward to Fridays!!!
