YHL Effect

I am drowning in my best laid plans right now while I get ready for a book club tonight and a birthday party on Saturday (the party is only about 10% planned so shoot me some good party karma in your spare time today, okay?). But while I was out getting a last minute tub o' spinach dip (shh, it's homemade) I noticed that my boys' room posts were getting some action in the form of comments.

Color me surprised when I came home, threw open my laptop and saw that my room had been featured on Young House Love today! Since I was secretly born in 1930 I'm going to throw the 'tickled' word out there again: I. was. tickled. Pink, in fact. I'm a big fan of John and Sherry so this was a very fun surprise.

Then I checked my stats, and that's when I noticed it... the YHL effect:


Heehee. If you're not familiar with Young House Love, let me first welcome you to the internet, and then second let me send you on over there to check things out. I'll see you in 4 days.

  3. I found you blog via YHL and I had to laugh at the last paragraph of this post. I think I did spend a good four days pouring over their site when I first found it. I will even dig into some of their archives if I need a DIY pick me up (kind of like DIY caffeine). They make everything look so darn doable! Congrats on your feature and I look forward to poking around at TTSS.

  6. Hello Anna. Love love loved your little boy's room. So, unfortunately for me, did my little boy. He's been comparing me to you for the last few hours ..... "Man, THAT boys mom probably really loves him a lot hey mom." I am seeing a boy bedroom makeover in my future.

  8. Congratulations! I was excited to recognize your boys' room on YHL today. I had to laugh, because I had JUST been studying your RAST hack yesterday... I'm in the process of my own hack. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

  12. I just found you yesterday and what I'm DYING TO SEE is the Kid's Clubhouse inside and if you fixed it up. We have a similar clubhouse (not in a tree either) and I'm not sure what to do with the inside...we have 3 little boys.

  13. Congrats on the boost! I love checking my stats, and it's always great to see a spike and figure out where it came from. BTW, your boys room is totally worthy of a YHL feature. Well done!

  14. That's awesome! I linked up to their pinterest challenge earlier this week and couldn't believe how high my stats went. And they weren't even featuring me! I was so happy for you when I opened my browser and saw your boys' room on their feature post!

  15. You're lucky your blog didn't crash. That usually happens anytime they link up to one. LOL

    I've been reading your blog for some time now and love. Congrats on the feature and hopefully getting lots of new readers.
