Don't Blink...You Might Miss It!

It's clean. It is actually clean.

I am going to take a shower.

Looks fantastic! I just love your kitchen!

You go girl!!! I was wanting to do this little meme too, but I just couldn't bear to clean THAT much (I didn't have the time either... the due date was too close)! Having all those things clean at the same time is a pure miracle at my house.

Woot! Go you! We have very similar cabinets. Cute house!

This is a meme?

You have a gorgeous home Steph! I'm coming over!

Kristen said...

No kiddin' it's clean! I'm impressed. Good job@

Stephanie said...

I didn't plan on it becoming a meme, but I looked up the definition of a meme and it says

"an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture"

So if you want to use this to get things done and you have to be accountable to the world, then go for it!

Everything looks great!! I love your family room. I love the changes you have made since I have been there. Hope you have a fun party tonight!

Nettie said...

Now I see one of the reasons you and Itybty are such good friends. You both totally have the decorating skills! I LOVE the red plaid couches!

abc momma said...

I so need to get my house clean like that. If my house is ever that clean, it is for a very brief and shining moment. Your house looks wonderful!:)

brandi ginn said...

because I have to tease you Utahans....Ahh yes, and just look at that shinny white paint glisten from the ceiling of her family room. that's right folks the CEILING of the FAMILY ROOM. Not the bathroom where moisture builds therefore needs to be repelled by the gloss; not in the kitchen where spills may occur but in the family room, the bedroom, the hall and every other room in the house. On the walls and yes, the ceiling. It is...the Utah signature.

love ya! :o)

Tori :) said...

WOW! I am impressed!! Looks great!

Pattie said...

You have a beautiful home, Stephanie!

Kara Elmore said...

oooooo LOVE IT! And, of course, I too love your home!! And I'll defend the Utah home, Brandi! :0) Love the glistening walls - it's better than my old apartment flat paint. :0)

Stephanie said...

Hey Brandi, the word Kara use used "glistening", is the word I LOVE!!!! I LOVE that I can scrub the HECK out of my paint and it won't come off like that FLAT (ugghh...hate shivers) gunk that goes on walls and feels like a CHALKBOARD!!! LOL...All in good fun Brandi, all in good fun. ;)

I'm with Kara on this one. *Note the big cheesey smile on my face. :)

brandi ginn said...

NOT FLAT PAINT!!! Yes, yes, FLAT PAINT is CR@P.

SATIN PAINT PEOPLE! I know you live in Utah, I know you think there's nothing outside the walls of the Valley but guess what...there IS! They even have stuff called "Duration paint" from Sherwin Williams. You can get MARKER off even the Matte finish of this paint. Even with this paint though I wouldn't do matte I would still go satin.

OK Nate just walked in and asked "where's the trim in that room? Oh, it's camaflauged by the beams of light" He wants to know when the last time you had to SCRUB something off the CEILING?

I dare you to find ONE professionally decorated house OUTSIDE of the state of UTAH that uses so much shinny paint. You know that extreme makeover house they did in Bountiful last year? Let's go see what designers outside of Utah used to paint that house!

all in fun girl...you know I love ya! :o)

This is why I thought it was a meme...

Stephanie said...

Hey Brandi! Those are fighting words! :) Do you really want to know when I had to scrub something off my ceiling? About two weeks ago my DH had put a fountain drink, root beer to be exact, in the fridge...on the edge. I opened the door and the cup went EVERYWHERE!!! I had to scrub the stinking ceiling. At my house you prevent trouble, because it inevitably FINDS you!!! I can't take any chances. HA HA!!!

brandi ginn said...

YES...but that's the KITCHEN.

I agree shinny paint goes in the KITCHEN. I HAVE shinny paint in my kitchen...big red walls..nice and shinny....

they really need an italizedd button for writing text. All capitals looks like I'm shouting...I'm just emphasizing not shouting... ;)

Stephanie said...

Hey Brandi, I use caps for emphasis, not shouting. I think we may have to agree to disagree. It's a fun debate though. ;)
