Aaaaand we’re back to our regularly scheduled program after a computer glitch that ate my first draft of this week’s party whole with one snap of its nasty, “unexpected error” message-powered jaws.


Oh well.

Okay, so you guys were definitely tracking with me on the whole “Who does my husband look like?” question:

The unanimous consensus?: Ryan Gosling (which is what I’ve always said too).

I think he might be a bit horrified to know that I’m holding polls about which celebrity he looks like (but maybe he’d just be secretly pleased).

Now, for him to just get his wonderful, horrified, secretly pleased self home from Houston so I can tease him! : )

Oh, and, just in case you missed it, I did a little free sprucing (otherwise known as wandering around my house saying, “Oooh, that’ll work!”) and came up with this Spring Sofa-Scape.

It’s amazing what some Goodwill knick-knacks and some fantastic pillow covers (that I WON!) can do to brighten your mood!

Okay, so enough about me, let’s talk about the really good stuff.

And that would be all the fantastically awesome projects shared by YOU:

I pretty much think these DIY Drink Coasters from Mom 4 Real are the cutest ever!

And I am in love (truly, madly, deeply) with this over-the-top amazing Vintage Sewing Room Reveal from Shop Ruby Jean (you have to click over to see the entire post…it’s incredible).

I think that this What Not to Buy at the Dollar Store series from Holy Craft is so clever. Some really useful, fun tips there!

And just in case that last shot gave your stomach a bit of a lurch, you can revive your appetite with these delectable-looking Ice Cream Cupcakes from A Pumpkin and a Princess.

I am kind of obsessed with colored accent doors, and, while I don’t usually use the phrase, “SHUT THE FRONT DOOR,” I might use it every day if I had this pink door from Meredith and Gwyneth in my house.

Meet Audrey, the fabulous desk makeover from A Girl and a Brush. Um..hello? A gorgeous shade of red AND she names inanimate objects? I like this girl and her brush!

I honestly cannot begin to fathom how long it would take to do an entire wall with this DIY faux wallpaper technique shared by Meeha Meeha, but for a punch of graphic fun, it’s absolutely fantastic!

And last but not least, I think that this St. Paddy’s Day ensemble from My Greatest Hits is so cute, feminine, and fun! (I think I need that cargo vest!)

  3. I just made #117. Figured since I was looking around at stuff it said no bake, I could make it, and eat it while I continue looking.
