The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Let's start with the bad and the ugly.

I got a flat tire last night on my way home from dinner with a friend. Boo. So that meant a late night and a morning of hopping around (on a spare tire!) from tire shop to tire shop, pricing tires. You know I won't settle for anything but a good deal.

But, sadly, that means I didn't get to finish my post for the third week of the 30 Day Photo Challenge (yes, I am a last-minute blog post kind of gal, shame on me!). Of course I'll take a raincheck!

For those of you participating in the photo challenge link up, here's the new schedule:

Friday, Oct. 28th: days 15-19
Friday, Nov. 4th: days 20-24
Friday, Nov. 11th: days 25-30

I thought it might be easier to break the rest of the challenge up into smaller chunks.
What do you think- will that work for everyone?

Now onto the good...

and by good...

I mean realllly good.

Two of my favorite bloggers deserve a huge hands in the air, raise the roof kind of celebration. And they both happen to be Bay Area folks that I met last July when I was in San Francisco!

(my sis, me, Michaela)

Michaela of Michaela Noelle Designs recently refinished the dining room of an apartment in Seattle and made the space into her very own gorgeous bedroom! And if that weren't enough, the makeover was recently featured on the ginormo blog, Made By Girl. What an honor!
Check out the highlights from her fabulous new room.

She hit it out of the ballpark, didn't she?! Great job, M.

(Kate, Courtney, me)

In other fun news, my friend Courtney from Courtney Out Loud was recently featured on... wait for it... the Nate Berkus show! I'm happy to report that Nate apparently agrees with the rest of the blogging world that Courtney's fabulous home deserves a whole lot of love. It's gorgeous!

Want to see more? Check out Courtney's Nate show appearance here.

Congrats to Courtney and Michaela for being fabulous! And here's to hoping my Wednesday afternoon is a little bit smoother than my Wednesday morning.... : )
