Better Homes & Gardens



So the other day, I climb on a plane to Houston. Reading material in hand? The March issue of Better Homes & Gardens. Which I proceeded to devour. But there was a significant pause in reading when I hit the Fresh Section. Because there, on page 20, I found my own face staring back at me.

After reading my lovely little mention, there was some grinning and giggling. And then I channeled all my willpower so that I didn't wake the large man in the seat next to me to tell him about it. (I really don't think he would have found it as exciting as I did.)




Thank you Better Homes & Gardens! I'm blushing.

Also. Thank you for writing the article about the tea cup flower arrangements. Such pretty photos! Exactly what I'm craving to get through another month of snow.

So cool--when I saw you in my issue, *I* actually got excited because I know you! (Well, sort of. You know, as one of the umpteen million people who reads your blog.) Congrats!

Congrats on being in there. I would have woken the guy next to me up, you showed great restraint.

Alas, I was not here before the article. It's what led me here. But I am very happy to be here! Love your blog.

We are so proud of you! :) That is totally exciting. Now I need to go out and buy a copy of the mag!

That would freak me out. They didn't tell you before they included you in their mag?

It is absolutely fabulous! I read the whole thing! There is also a blurb about you in February's issue of Parents as one of "The Power Moms". That's exciting but I'm sure shocking when you're not expecting it!! Congrats.

Whoo mama!

I just wish it were called Better Homes, Gardens, and Hair.

Because they you would totally be in it every month.

That's awesome! Thanks for the reminder I need to go read mine asap. How funny that no one thought to mention to you that you were going to be in there though!

Thanks for the sweet comments!

And to clarify: Better Homes & Gardens had reached out about featuring me and asked for a photo. So I knew a mention was coming. I just didn't know when. I'm guessing we discussed the date/issue of the feature, and then it was promptly forgotten by me.

I was so thrilled when I got my latest issue and saw you featured. It was like walking through a crowd and unexpectedly seeing an old friend (although we've really never met). Congrats!

I caught a glimpse of your photo when I was thumbing through my copy of BHG and went "hey.. I know her!" [Except of course I don't really KNOW you... just a faithful blog reader here] But I was still super excited to see you in there! Congrats!
