If you love houses and decorating, Hooked on Houses is not to be missed. Julia regularly showcases celebrity houses, readers’ houses, and — my favorite — movie houses.
For instance does this statement from the quiz sound familiar?
I think the best time to take a walk is at dusk–after people have started turning on their lights, but before they have closed their blinds!
I’m (only a little) embarrassed to say that I know exactly what she’s talking about. I’m also relieved to know that I’m not the only one.
Anyway, thanks so much to Julia for including the Family CEO kitchen remodel on her blog. It’s a special thrill for me because I’ve been a reader of Hooked on Houses for a long, long time. I highly recommend you check it out — but I warn you — it’s addictive!
Here is some other weekend reading you may enjoy:
- Emily A. Clark writes about Preserved Boxwood. I’ll be honest, I didn’t know that this was a thing. But now that I do, I think I may even have a wreath made out of it. I’ll be on the lookout for more because my goal is to have more living plants in my home. Preserved boxwood may not be completely living, but it’s close enough for me. Plus I love the way it looks.
- Kimberly Kesterke writes How I Paid Cash for an MBA Program in a guest post at Budgeting in the Fun Stuff. This girl thought way outside the box and got very creative. I was inspired by her dedication.
- Speaking of college, my daughter, Lindsey, and I have been blogging at the U.S. News education site about how to Avoid 4 Common Pitfalls While Searching for Colleges and 5 Ways to Improve Your ACT Score.
- And Jeff Rose at Good Financial Cents has a helpful list of 70 Super Easy and Practical Ways to Save Money. The list is broken down into categories like food, housing, transportation, and healthcare, so it’s easy to find some that will work for you.
So tell me, are you hooked on houses? Do you try to peek in houses when you walk (in a completely non-stalkerish way of course.) Do you have a favorite movie house?Note: I'm no longer adding new posts to The Family CEO. I am, however, writing at Creating This Life, where we talk about home, books, travel, and other life stuff.
