Made my day

Y'all the past few days I thought I was on my death bed. Yes I was sick again. Sick right after Thanksgiving and sick again. More on this later but Jon was gone Friday-Tuesday visiting family in Cleveland and so being sick and alone... the worst. Anyway, I am on the up today but was seriously bummed to miss the YoungHouseLove book signing last night here in Austin. If you've never read their blog, you haven't lived. Their blog was the first I ever started reading 3 years ago and to this day is my favorite blog on the face of the earth.  My dreams were crushed but there was no way I could drive myself downtown in traffic in a thunderstorm when I basically couldn't lift my arms up.


But then this happened....

same video, but YouTube

I was supposed to go with my girlfriend Amanda who seriously made my day/entire life. I screamed out loud and had to wipe away some tears of shock and excitement as I hacked up a lung on the couch. Now if you have no clue who the Petersiks are, you will think I am 100% nuts. But if you are down with John and Sherry, you understand my pure joy.

Coolest thing ever!

I would die if I got to meet John and Sherry! They're such an inspiration. I just got their book in the mail - best happy mail. Can't wait to start on some projects around our house. (For whatever reason I can't watch the video you posted, but I assume it's an awesome, personalized message from them!)

I just got over the flu! Horrible... Feel better soon! I only follow two blogs, yours and the Pioneer Woman. I've been looking for a new one, and Young House Love looks perfect. I never know how to find new blogs, search engines just bring up a bunch of nonsense! Thanks!
