2015 Blog Stats

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 55,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 20 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Mini B is Famous!

That’s right–she’s a star!  Er, well, if you define fame as being featured on a pretty popular blog.  What–did you think I was going to say she was in a movie or something?  Puh-leeze.  That’s for next year ;).

Mini B’s nursery was featured in the Before & After section on Apartment Therapy Friday!  Check it out here.  I was so excited that I actually took a picture of the site on my phone (I know–I’m a full on geek) . . .


I have no idea how it happened–I didn’t submit it or anything.  Total happy surprise to me.  🙂  So thank you Apartment Therapy for stumbling across Mini B’s humble little nursery–she is really quite touched by the praise.


Oh, and if you want to see the actual post about Mini B’s nursery, just click here.  If you want to see an even amazinger nursery (yep, just making words up today), check out her cousin’s digs here.

Jack Attack

Union Jack that is.  Just found this while I was blog-trolling, and I’m totally going to make copy it!  Isn’t it stunning?!?!

It was made by the Southern Eclectic aka Sheridan French.  I’m totally in love.  Now I just need to find a suitable dresser . . . Mr.–you up for some yard sailing this weekend?!

Pin, Pin Away

So most of you already know about Pinterest, but for those of you who live in a cave (or alternately aren’t obsessed with shelter blogs like me), then you may not have seen the light (yet).  So allow me to introduce you to one of the best time sucks ever . . . Pinterest!  Pinterest lets you catalog all those images on the Internet that you want to keep track of along with little notes to remind you of what you liked about them.  It’s kind of like having a huge pinboard where you can tack up anything you see, and Pinterest keeps track of where you found it.  You can also look at everyone else’s pinboards and steal repin what they’ve found.

I started my account a couple months ago, so if you’d like to check out all my pins, just click here.  Right now, they’re a little kitchen-heavy since the Mr. wants any kitchen renovation to be done immediately upon buying our new house (teaser alert: we’re getting closer and may even be putting in an offer on one tomorrow!  Keep your fingers crossed for us).
