    PLEASE carry on! Your blog is one of two I read. I am enamored with your way of teetering on the brink of insanity in your high heels, dragging an enormously impractical mirror behind you. Most importantly, you make me snort laugh, and that’s hard to do to me with mere words. Carry on, please!

    We love you! We really love you! I know that your blog is destined for greatness and I hope you take the time to revel in how far you’ve come already! The pictures alone in this post are some of the most fab things I’ve ever seen 🙂

    I don’t like blogs, as a rule. But I like this one. No, I love it. Keep writing it.

    And yet here you are, looking all pretty and saying and doing all of the things I wish I was doing. You are enchanting. Don’t ever stop. I need you to continue for so many reasons. But the main one is that I just enjoy the hell out of you!
    Nothing is worth selling your soul. Perhaps sharing it is enough. 🙂

    I completely and totally still love you and the fact that you are ripping out your soul to entertain us. AND I would be in the water with you, waiting for a yummy (young! I mean young! Hell, I’ll take old, too) marine!

    I saw a really big mirror with gold at estate sale and thought of you. Wanted to send you a photo just in case you were still looking but California is a long way and I had no camera.
    See, we are watching, listening and I love the outfit, the peplum and the pearls. Keep it up.

    Two comments:
    1) Did you actually have a sign with words, or just a white card and photoshopped words later? If the answer is the previous, that’s awesome. If the latter, I wonder what people (ie. wedding party) were thinking you were doing?!
    2)You are now blogging about blogging a lot lately and not really about the house – and yet you garner enormous readership – which of course comes from your enormous enthusiasm – and that you’ve maintained the crazed followers that we are, means you have MADE it. In my world anyways 🙂
    Don’t ever stop writing. Even if you just write about Marines under 30. I would’ve appreciated some photos of that though.

      A real sign– no photoshop.
      If there comes a time when I have access to Marines under 30 (or any age)… I will NOT be here for a while. I know you all will understand.

    You are fantabulous. And while I lack a certain amount of your enthusiasm, I sympathize completely. Blogging is crazypants. Crazypants and emotional and threatens to throw you off the edge at any moment. But worth it 🙂

    Please do not stop writing!!! I love your blog. Seriously love your blog. You are crazy. You are uplifting. You make me smile and giggle out loud. You have attention to detail that I will never have. You go on wilder goose chases than I do to find interesting pieces. You are as addicted to craigslist as I am to kijiji. Please realize we love it when you entertain us. Please do not stop!!!!

    Love, Love, Love your blog. I get an excitement when I see a message from you in my Inbox that makes me hurry up and click the link because if I wait too long, I might miss my chance! (Which is clearly not happening, but for some reason I get this panicky feeling that it will.) And God forbid I miss it, I might as well chew on glass for the rest of the day. Keep it up, we are reading, laughing and loving it all!

    I think this is the first time I’ve ever commented here, but I just wanted to tell you that you’re hilarious and I love you. I also want to know if that sign is Photoshopped or if you were legit peddling your blog to the masses. (FYI: I’m down with either one, but I think it’s funnier if you have zero shame. Also, I think it means we could be friends.)

      REAL SIGN. (although I cannot claim to have no shame, as I definitely felt umm… idiotic)

    I love, love, love reading your blog. I follow a lot of blogs but only check out the recipes or the pictures. Yours is the only one I actually read and get excited to see in my “in box”. That last sentence sounds like I live a lonely, pathetic life, which is untrue. But I do look forward to your emails. Thanks for sharing your talented wit and writing style with the billions of fans that you are accruing.
