I know the Blooming Blogger posts happen on Mondays but this week is a special Friday edition because Kelly was busy delivering the newest member of their family on Tuesday night and also finishing up her nursery. (Who looks this cute when they are pregnant? For real! I always looked like I escaped a circus and had clowns selling cotton candy from under my
tent dress.) For real, isn’t she gorgeous?
Check out the sweetest nursery that little Mila Jane will get to sleep in. So gorgeous!
Read on to learn more about Kelly and why you must read her blog! She is so funny and cute, plus add in her wonderful talent in decorating and DIY and she is a MUST read!
How did you come up with your blog name?
My blog name – View Along the Way – is a beautiful example of how not to name a blog. I started it as a way to document our lives for family and friends, and after we bought our house, it evolved into a DIY blog, but it forgot to evolve its name. Maybe at that time if I’d known what I’d actually be blogging about, I could have snagged an amazing name, like Apartment Therapy or Blooming Hydrangea.
Favorite thing about blogging?
The fame and fortune? Oh wait, you said blogging, not being a famous rock star. I get those two confused. My favorite thing is the friendships I’ve made with sweet ladies like Ange, and having a creative outlet to spew my thoughts and ideas – unchecked – all over the interwebs. And no one can stop me! MUAHAHAHA!
How did you meet your husband?
We first met under the romantic fluorescent lights of the dining hall during my freshman year in college: a surefire environment for life-long love. We met through a mutual friend, who I thought he was interested in. I spent our initial time together trying to decide if he was good enough for her. He would tell you that he was obviously interested in me the whole time. (All lies!)
Favorite item in your home?
My family? (Total cop-out answer.) And the Chinese Chippendale chairs I found on craigslist. Which rank slightly below my family, because I’m a loving mom and wife.
I’m kinda loving scallops as the next chevron.
Andy and I honeymooned in Anguilla, which is this tiny island off St. Martin. We got a tiny cottage which sat RIGHT on the sand, and had the resort and the whole bay almost completely to ourselves. It was BLISS. As soon as we got home, we started saving for our next trip, but soon after, they tore down the resort and are now building some multi-bazillion dollar condos there or something. (The nerve!) So I’d go back to Anguilla, and back in time. Any travel agents able to pull that off?
Ange, this was so fun! Thank you for letting me hang out on your blog today!
Kelly, thank you for taking time out of snuggling your sweet baby to hang out here today! You are a rockstar! Head over and check out Kelly’s blog, View Along the Way!
