Our Home in BH&G Refresh!

Wowza, that weekend went fast! I guess the extra fun ones always do. We had a little staycation at one of our favorite local hotels this weekend to celebrate my son's birthday, and I'm having a hard time facing reality after 24-hours of room service and housekeeping. Seriously, I am so good at being a lady-of-leisure...anyone have tips on how to make that my full-time gig?! #agirlcandream

But talk about a dream come true...the full house feature of our last home is finally out!! It's the Fall 2015 issue of Refresh, a Better Homes & Gardens special publication. I knew it would be a lot of pictures since they sent me a ton for sourcing...but I had no idea it would be a whopping TEN PAGES!?

And I'm thrilled they included the whole family! Many times I'm the one who gets singled out, but the truth is, I couldn't complete projects, room makeovers, or blog posts without the support, encouragement, and help from these people! #youremyboyblue

Hi Sugarplum | Refresh Fall 2015

Sara Egge wrote a great article, focusing on the sentimentality of my blog's origin and name (read my post about it here). It makes me miss my grandfather so much, but I know he would be bursting with pride over this whole experience! After all, it's their things I inherited that make my home so interesting.

Sidenote: There were a few little errors in the article, but the funniest one was referring to my grandmother as 'grandma.' She would box my ears if I ever called her that! ;)

Hi Sugarplum | BHG Refresh Magazine Feature

We are so grateful to the amazingly-talented photographers, stylists, and editors who made this happen, and made our home look magazine-worthy! This home holds 10 years of precious memories for our little family, and we'll always treasure this tribute and keep it as a reminder of our kid's early years.

And thanks to you...kind, supportive, enthusiastic, engaged readers! Without you, none of this would have happened!! #truth I appreciate every one of you, and the time you take to stop by here more than I can express.

To see the full story and feature, you can order an issue here, or find it at your local bookstore, Target, Home Depot and Lowes. If I get approval, I'd love to write a behind-the-scenes post for you! Feel free to leave any questions you have about the whole experience in the comments, and I'll add them to the post. And just curious, what do you call your grandparents? Mine went by Nance and Poppoo.

  8. I just luv how gorgeous and magazine worthy ur home is - yet I still feel like I could totally walk in the door and plop on the couch and share a glass of wine with you! that's what I'm working on myself. AND it's affordable ideas! my grandparents were Meme, Papa (sounds like pawpaw) and grandma Norris. my daddy's dad died when I was 7 so I don't have many memories of him.

  25. Is your grandmother British? Mine is, and same thing goes for the "grandma" reference. Even when I buy cards for her, I have to be sure they read "grandmother." And I've had my ears boxed a time or two.

  34. I just finished looking at that magazine today. Had to keep going back to see what you did with inherited pieces. What a fabulous home you have, comfy and welcoming. Great photos of you all and your home. How exciting. Did you clean house for week before they came to do spread on your home? i would have been so nervous. What an honor. Love all those special zines BH&G do for decorating. Refuse to get rid of them. When in a stalemate, can't think of anything new to do to house I get those zines out to pore over for inspiration. Happy for you and your family. Happy week

  39. We found your blog after touring your house during your Open House. We were actively looking for our new home in Plano at that time. Your house was a serious temptation, but we needed a tad more space for our family of five. We wound up in a 1970's house off of Park and are slowly making it our own. Your blogs about your house projects are a true inspiration to me, particularly to go with what I love and not be so bound to all neutrals. I like to DIY and being organized is an ongoing battle with 3 girls! I hope to meet you in person sometime! If up you ever decide to do design consulting, put me on your list of first clients!!

    1. Thank you so much! Such a small world, right?! That was a crazy weekend, we couldn't believe how many people saw the house. I'm thrilled you found the right home for your family, and you find inspiration here! I'm actually hosting an event at the Container Store next weekend...I'll give details on the blog later this week. I'd love to meet!

  48. Congrats! Can't wait to get an issue! My grandmothers were both Grandma but my kids' grandmothers are Nana (pronounced Ney Ney) and Mimi. I don't think any of my kids' friends have a "grandma".
