Follow Friday

Its my turn this week to pick someone for our Follow Friday and I choose Lizmarieblog.com.  I love her style and everything she does I want to do.  Which is what leads me to this post.  She recently did a post about naming her house and it inspired me to want to do the same thing.

Here is the picture she posted about her sign she had made for her house, isn’t it lovely? I love her living room and how light and bright it is. You should also read about why she named her house here.  I love how sweet she is and how it just bubbles out in her writing.

After reading her blog that evening when my family was all sitting around the dinning room table after dinner.  I mentioned that I wanted to name our house and I needed some ideas.  I told them the name had to do with something about the house.  Some ideas I gave them were we live in the pacific north-west, its green all around us, our house is green ect.  When they were done rolling their eyes at me and telling me I was crazy they actually started coming up with some good ideas.  My Hubby ended up with the winner, Cottonwood Creek.  Which is perfect because our backyard is filled with cottonwood trees and we have a creek that runs along the border of our property.

I took a chalk board sign we already had and put our new name on it.  We built our house in 2007 so that had to be on my sign also.

It’s funny how the little thing like naming my house gets me so excited.  Heidi came over and saw my sign and she gooshed all over it!  The two of us are two peas in a pod!  I’m so happy I have her to get so excited over the little things with me.  Please tell me we are not the only ones who do this?  I think, I must feel this way because I live in a house full of boys.

Happy Follow Friday,

P.S. I just got paper work in the mail about my house and it is actually built in 2006, lol!  Good thing I used a chalk marker.  I’ll get around to changing it one of these days :).

Follow Friday

There are so many bloggers out there, or so Ang and I are finding out!  I have been following this blogger for quite awhile now.  When my husband and I started out on our paleo quest a few years ago we found her wonderful cookbook that has the VERY BEST paleo chocolate chip cookies I have ever had.  I’ve been a follower ever since.  She has a crazy story about her health and how finding the right foods healed her body.  She gave me hope that as a food allergy sufferer I could eat things that tasted amazing and were in my “healthy zone”.  My husband and I followed her posts as she sadly lost a baby last year as well.  She’s an amazing woman who continues to be an inspiration in so many ways.   She came out with another book last year and I use it just as much as the first.  Go check her out and be inspired to eat and and cook healthier for you and your family.  Thanks Danielle Walker, keep on doing what you do! You can also find her on Instagram ! @againstallgrain
