Blogher '12, Social Anxiety, and Being Pregnant

I am sure the title of this post has you clenching and grinding your teeth already. I need to follow up with a post “Butterflies, cupcakes, and winning the lottery” and equalize the less than positive feelings. See, I have “added-ticket-to-cart” for BlogHer about 4 times in my life, and then chickened out. I have actually done this with a bunch of¬†conferences. Maybe it stems from the not-planned trip to the Nate Berkus show a few years back which resulted me in a room with 90 bloggers asking for “blog cards” and stepping on one another for their 3 minutes

So Many Changes!

Happy Monday! I thought today may be a good day to address the changes going on around MAHAH! We had a site done a few years ago, and thought it was cute – it was never really “us”. It was a bit too shabby chic-frilly. It was a long annoying process to get done, so I kinda just went with it for a bit and am kinda mad at myself for it. Also, I use to work for Squarespace as their Marketing Director and was super loyal to their blogging platform because it was made for people like me. People

BIG News! Long Story…

Hello Friends! We hope all is well and Spring was super productive! We have not been so productive! Funny thing about life, you plan, and then BOOM, life gets in the way. I was very excited to have the Lake House Project be complete so I can get back to my world, my home, and my blog. Remember that thing I just said about life getting in the way of plans?….Well, here’s the story. The last bit of the Lake House I started feeling not so well and was pumping myself with caffeine pills just to get through the days.

Dreaming of a Simple Life

Hi! Happy weekend! I haven’t showered or eaten a full meal in three days. I literally ran home and jumped in a shower to wash away the chaos today. Let’s say life has reached a level of insane I never thought possible. Count down to lake-house-complete has begun! With Emily and Orlando here to help with the final touches of the renovation and begin installation, I am beginning to see that light at the end of the tunnel more clearly. For the past four months, my life has been dedicated to a full renovation including (but not limited to!) three

Almost back on track

Hey guys! The project Emily and I have been working on is weeks away from being complete! It’s been a four month renovation upstate New York and has knocked the wind out of me! When the reno is complete I have Brimfield, London, Houston, and FLA to attend to, but the good news it – a lot of fun blogging will happen from that and the reveal of the design and reno on this lake house. I miss my house so much and am excited to get back to her.

Blogging, or Lack There Of…

Happy Friday! As you may have noticed, we have gone MIA, again. I have been struggling for a while about how to balance blogging, with clients, and a huge renovation I am working on with Emily Henderson. At the same time Joey’s business has been booming and home projects have been on hold for the most part. We have some big plans and ideas we are dying to execute, but it’s been hard to pick a start date. It took us about two and a half weeks to hang this painting above. Yep. I am sure as you read this you

10 Questions with Orlando Soria

Oh, happy day lovies! I am so excited about today’s “10 Questions With…”! You probably recognize this handsome fella from Secrets from a Stylist! What you probably don’t know is that Orlando is way more entertaining than HGTV will allow for. Over the past six months this man has made me laugh so much, I thought it only fair you get in on the giggles and start reading his blog too. HommeMaker.com is packed with both pretty pictures and humorous chatter. Before you pop over there, get a taste below! 1. What’s Your Name and URL: Orlando Soria, Hommemaker.com   2.

So this is the new year…

Whoa. Has it really been over two weeks since we last posted? Did life really get in the way that long? As I sat down to write this post, I decided to catch up on my usual blog reads, and read a freakishly similar post from Emily as to what was in my mind. We have a design business which is keeping us over the moon busy, and I have clients, and the holidays but I felt kind of shameful because after reading her post and personally knowing her schedule, I felt my “excuses” for not blogging have been dwarfed.

Morning Puppy Porn

So, it’s not reallllly porn. Yes, Joey is a little shirtless. And yes, this video takes place in our bed, however – it mostly has to do with one of our pups, porkchop. This is how he wakes us up every morning. I’ll let the video tell the rest of the story. Enjoy!

Thanksgiving Recap!

Hello Lovelies! How was your Thanksgiving?! We had a great time with some great friends! We played hours of catchphrase, and cooked for hours! None of us knew how to carve a turkey, and we drank a ton of spiked cider. It was wonderful! We went a little woodsland with our table setting, which was perfect for a casual bird fest. Joey was stoked! He got a bunch of his favorite food, all in one day. Sadly, it didn’t involve Track Meat. Place settings were simple too. I really need that matte gold flatware from Horne. This photo proves it.
