Stylish blogger award


I’m so excited because earlier this week Heather from Satisfying Spaces awarded me with the Stylish Blogger Award!  I’ve seen this little award floating around the blogosphere and was hoping that someone out there would pass it on to me.  So, a big thank you to Heather from me!!

Now for the fun part.  When you get awarded the Stylish Blogger Award you are required to share 7 things about yourself.  Some of these facts may be new to you and some you may have heard before.  Here it goes…

[I thought I would throw some pretty pics in so you wouldn’t get bored reading]

1.  I have the most amazing husband in the world, and I’m so fortunate that he “gets” blogging.  He’s actually the person who introduced me to blogs in the first place.  He had one before me.


{Love this office by the way}

2.  I’m pregnant with my first child.  William Chase Holcombe will be his name, and I can’t wait until he gets here in June.

6.  I’m extremely indecisive when it comes to designing my own home.  I don’t have a problem coming up with a design for someone else’s though.


7.  I don’t think a meal is complete without a piece of bread, but I could care less about dessert.

I’m passing the Stylish Blogger Award onto these 3 lovely blogs that I’ve been digging lately.  Check ‘em out!

  1. Congrats. So if you aren't going to eat that dessert could you pass it this way? I'll trade you my bread.

  2. OMG, that thing about not eating the small piece of sandwich is hilarious...I also had no idea that you grew up on a small farm. Just when you think you know someone ;-)

  3. I enjoyed reading your fun seven things about you and I aways enjoy your blog!

    I want the bread and the dessert with every meal. Is that wrong?

    Have a great weekend,

  4. Congratulations!! I love reading your blog!

    In the first picture...are those Ikea shelves turned upright and painted? them!!

    I grew up in Anniston, Alabama. I know exactly where Slapout is located! Such a fun name for a town!

  5. Love these 7 things....I do the same thing with the sandwich, unless I'm starving and then the whole thing is gone!
    Great images too...I love the office in the 1st picture. Have a great weekend Cristi!

  6. Congratulations Cristi you are definitely very stylish, so this award is well deserved!

    And thank you so very much for forwarding it to me, I'm honored!

    I'm so happy I have found your amazing blog and your spectacular designs, you know I'm a fan!

    AND I had to laugh about the last bite thing. I used to do the same thing. Before I got married I lived with my parents and their dog Molly. I always gave the last bite of my meal to the dog, so when I moved out I never ate the very last bite. DH called it the Molly bite haha!

    And also, congratulations on carrying a son, I love the name (my best friend's son is also called William, fantastic name). Can't wait till it's my turn =)
