It’s so true! This is the one from Funny People. Others that this article from Vulture mentions: the Beverly Hills mansion in Jack and Jill; the one he inherits from a rich uncle in Mr. Deeds; and his dad’s megamansion in Billy Madison.
I loved seeing how Laura, who blogs at Finding Home, created a playful pool house for her teens. I’d say they’re pretty lucky kids to have a hang-out like this! (I gave you a tour of Laura’s beautiful house last year.)
A reader named Candie asked me if I had Gizoogled my blog yet. She warned me that the language is a bit colorful on the site, as you can see (I censored some of the words in this screenshot). Gizoogle calls itself “a parody site of Google lets you translate pretty much anything on the internet into gangsta slang,” so I had to give it a try. Then I spent a little too much time Gizoogling everyone else I could think of, too…
Have you ever sold something at a yard sale or on Craigslist and then seen it being sold again somewhere else–with a much higher price tag? I loved this story on Nesting Place about the insight she had when it happened to her. (The vintage suitcase she sold is in that photo of her bedroom–can you find it?)
Emily wrote a beautiful post on Simple Mom about moving across the country with her family: “I thought leaving home would be much harder on all of us than it has been since we said goodbye to our house of seven years. I realize now that it’s because home came with us. Home is us.”
This post on BuzzFeed had me nodding and laughing along to all 32 signs of HGTV addiction, including the one above–“You can predict the things house hunters will mention.” (I also appreciated all the link love they gave me for various posts I’d written on the topic! :-))
Can you believe it’s August? Only a few weeks of summer left until school starts for my kids (boo!). I was on vacation with my family this week and had a great time, but it’s always good to be home again–I posted a few pics on Instagram if you wanna see ’em. Happy weekend!
