It's my party...

I’ve been trying to think of how to explain what this weekend was like for me.  We all have those times that we know we will remember always.  This was one of those times for me.  I watched the show with my friends and family on Friday.  Saturday was the party and it was wonderful.  Here are a few pictures and the play by play.

I gave play by play of my episode and everyone had an opportunity to ask questions.



Giving the behind the scenes details of the show.  That’s Jim Greenwood in the hat.  His artwork was featured in the show.

My biggest fan of all, my sweet husband, Eric.

I’m putting together a post for Wednesday with behind the scenes photos of the show.   For those of you, who have commented on the blog, Facebook and twitter, I am trying so hard to respond to all of you.  If I miss one of you, please know that I have read each and every one and they mean the world to me.  You are the best and like I said on Saturday night, if this ended for me today, I would feel completely blessed and happy.

Thank you.



It's finally here: My big day!

Well, it’s finally here.  My HGTV Design Wars show premieres today.  Today I’ll watch the show with my family and then again with all my girlfriends tonight.

I’m feeling both excited and nervous at the same time.  You’re overwhelming support and kind words have meant the world to me.  I feel like you will all be sitting here watching with me.  I hope you enjoy it, thanks again for your amazing support and I’ll be back on Monday with pics from the party on Saturday night and more details from the show.

Set your DVR for 1pm eastern/noon central!
