Good Morning! I can’t believe it’s the last Monday before Christmas! Where oh where did this month go? Are you all done shopping? I am, I can’t believe it but we are done with our Christmas shopping, this is early for us, we are usually out on Christmas Eve getting some last minute things. Ok, who am I kidding, I’ll probably still end up doing that, never fails.
Today’s Blooming Blogger is Michelle from Decor and the Dog. I’m not even sure how I found Michelle’s blog but I’m glad I did. She’s funny, has a super cute dog, a beautiful home and is a fellow mid-westerner. What’s not to love, right? Take it away Michelle!
How did you chose the name of your blog and does it have any special meaning?
Picking a name for my blog was extremely hard. I wanted something unique…but not too unique. I also wanted it to be easy to remember. After much struggle, it came to me! It should named after two of my favorite things…Décor and the Dog!
How long have you been blogging?
My blog celebrated it’s first birthday last week. They grow up so fast…
Favorite website for shopping?
I’m a sucker for West Elm and Crate and Barrel for my home. I like JCrew sale items for me! (I don’t look at anything other than the sale section. I’m not fancy enough for non-sale items.)
Share your favorite room or project that you’ve completed recently?
My most favorite recent project would be our farmhouse table…
I love that we now have a piece of furniture built by my husband and finished by the two of us. I love furniture that has a story!
How do you balance blogging and home life? Any tips?
I work 40+ hours a week. I don’t have access to my blog or others during the work day. To balance, I write most of my posts on Sundays. This allows me time during the week to read other blogs (at night) and live my life! It’s easy to get sucked into all things blogging. It took awhile for me to find the balance.
If you could vacation anywhere, where would you go and why?
Fiji. It looks warm and beautiful. Did I mention warm? Bring me my sunscreen and floatie mat!
One gift you wouldn’t mind finding under your tree this year?
I think this post is about dreaming big so I am going to go with the Fossil Vintage Re-Issue Weekender. Isn’t it pretty?…
Thanks to Ange for letting me take over her blog today!!
Thanks Michelle for stopping by and sharing with us! I’m loving that bag by the way, in case anyone hasn’t purchased my Christmas gift yet. Make sure to stop over and say Hi to Michelle and also Ike, who occasionally wears some cute outfits.
On a quick side note, The Blooming Blogger series will be on vacation for the holidays but will return again on January 9th.
