My people, I am here to dissapoint you– I have to phone it in this week.
I’m hoping you’ll forgive me when you see the face-meltingly-embarrassing thing I did this weekend… SOLELY in the name of entertaining you.
It has been a LONG time since I made a spectacle of myself and the whole time I thought I was going to pass out from humiliation.
What was it? I can’t tell you, duh. But I promise it served NO PURPOSE at all.
I will post a photo of me on the way to do the face-meltingly-embarrassing thing on Facebook… so that if you’re interested in such things, you can see that I wore my necklace-of-invincibility. Putting it here might alarm new readers.
Also, the reason THIS post is nonexistent is because I wrote a post for Houzz about surviving DIY with your significant-other. It’s all I have to offer—go read it here.

Great article, Victoria! Entertaining, but with lots and lots of truth.

Oh, V.E.B., you delight us so much! I can not wait to see what awesome thing you did. I have a separate blog where I used to blog some of my embarrassing stories. But then I stopped.
Please, never stop.

Good one, Victoria! (your article, that is 🙂

I read the Houzz article. Here is my favorite part: “My husband likes to point out that if I had been on the Titanic, it would not have sunk. The ship would have been kept afloat by my sheer aversion to diverting from the plan.” And I TOTALLY believe him!! Love the article, am so exciteddd for more updates!

But, but, but…you said you would be both Dog AND Pony. It’s going to get real ugly if I’m left to my own devices. Can’t wait to hear what you did. Anyone, anyone? Guilt vs gilt… anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Victoria, you are my guide and inspiration. And no, you are not the slowest blogger in the world. I firmly hold that distinction. Since I am a newby blogger, I thought the process would get easier, but now I realize that it won’t. You have also crushed my dream that that the house remodel I’m am about to embark on will be a fun romp toward perfection. Plus, I’m soooooo envious of your Houzz gig. And then there’s Huffington Post. How do you do it?

Such a tease!! I’m dying to hear what you’ve been up to…. it’s sure to be an epic tale. Love the necklace and can’t wait for a post on where you purchase your superhero wardrobe.

You know you have to tell us, your loyal and sparkle loving followers, what exactly you’ve been up to! Just read the Houzz piece. It was fabulous, as usual! 🙂

Great post. I loved the Houzz post. It was truly solid info for those about to take a leap.

Nice article on Houzz.
I just found you recently so thought I should give a shout out and say I enjoy reading your adventures. I just got caught up on your bathroom and I think you did a really awesome job.

You tease! Loved the Houzz article though 🙂 Can’t wait to see your embarrassing moment…which might be delayed by a trip to the chiropractor for your necklace neck!

Whatever it is that you humiliated yourself over, I’m sure you will make extremely entertaining. Your courage in writing about your highs and lows inspires me! BIG HUGS!!!!!!

Woohoo! I saw the Houzz! I can literally scroll through that app for hours. I am in love with you. Is that okay? Only, in an I’m married with 2 kids and would really just love to live near you and stalk your every amazing move in a non threatening manner and then share a fizzy pink cocktail on your disco porch kind of way. “Hello. My name is Osh and I am addicted to Victoria-ness.” Your humiliation, I’m quite sure, would make all of us very proud. If any of us could be even a smidge as entertaining as you while we face melt, we would all be more content with ourselves.

Your necklaces make me drool in a most unladylike fashion. They are wonderful!
July 30, 2013 @ 6:45 pm
Edited to add: Pretty sure I was on crack when we walked through our house the first time, during a quick showing. I missed everything that was wrong with it and only saw the things I loved. Sigh.
July 30, 2013 @ 8:47 pm
Uh oh you did it. Many more hundreds er thousands to lock in your basement. I don’t mind that it’s getting crowded!
July 30, 2013 @ 10:38 pm
Excellent! As always! My husband and I are a year into restoring out 1912 victorian, alone. Your posts make us laugh in the darkest days of paint chip selection!

Congratulations on your Houzz story–great job (and an honest assessment)! Also beautiful photos. I am suddenly aware that not one square inch of my house is clean. Not one. And I wouldn’t be able to get it clean even if Houzz was coming for a photo shoot. And we are about to rip out the kitchen sink. That should help!! Can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeve for your kitchen remodel!

I did! I followed you over from Houzz! Thank you for the wonderful article. I’m thrilled to find your blog. It’s the perfect find for me now that my husband and I have purchased his childhood home. It’s a 50-year old ranch stable farmhouse in south Texas. We won’t be living there during renovation, but our youngest daughter will. My late father-in-law built the house himself, from house plans that he drew up. (Insert here… He was a farmer/rancher not a carpenter/architect). Now that we own it, I’ve realized there is way more renno than I ever imagined… Your blog may save my sanity! I’m a new follower and new avid fan. I’m looking forward to reading from the beginning as we start our own journey and labor of love. Blessings. Dixie
