The Back Page

March 5th, 2011

I was told the other day by my neighbor friend {thanks Heidi!} that b&t.com was featured in a local magazine called Richmond Magazine R*Home.

Sure enough, when I got my hands on a copy, I flipped to the last page {or as they call it- The Back Page} to find my website listed as one to “check out”…

Here it is, up close and personal…

Yeah!  Whoo-Hoo!  How awesome is that?!

Thanks R*Home for the shout out!!

Is it April already??

April 5th, 2010

Another week flown by… And it was quite the busy one!  I was traveling for work in Philly, when I got an email from Mr.vB that Young House Love had featured our Kitchen Redesign.  HOORAH!  We had been expecting the post, as Sherry had told us it would be coming, BUT our Web Hosting company wasn’t.  With several hundred people pouring to our site it did the worst thing possible.  IT CRASHED!!!  FOR HOURS!!! My IT guy (Mr. vB) immediatley jumped on the issue, but it still took 5 hours to get it back up and running.

So welcome to all the new readers over here at Bootsandtotty.com.  Mr. vB and I hope you have enjoyed reading about our renovations… We got some more up our sleeve!

Cover Girl…

February 11th, 2010

I’ve been keeping a secret from you guys.  About 2 months ago I was interviewed for an article in a local magazine called V Magazine for Women.  I didn’t want to say anything until I was for sure if was going to be published.

Well guess what?! IT’S BEEN PUBLISHED! {insert high-five here}

As soon as I heard this, I ran out and picked up the first copy I saw . As I was knocking people over grabbing for my copy, I thought the girl on the cover looked awfully familiar.

For those readers I have never met in person- THAT IS ME ON THE COVER!!

How crazy is that??  Now I knew there was going to be an article about bootsandtotty.com in the magazine, but I had NO CLUE that I was going to be the cover girl!!  I was so excited!

Click here to see the online article.  It is really good if I do say so myself!  It was written by a great writer {and family friend} named Terri Jones.  When she’s not writing about awesome blogs {oops, did I say that??}, she is a freelance marketing and editorial writer for her company called WordPlay.  {If anyone is looking for a freelance writer drop me an email and I can pass along Terri’s info to you! She’s great!}

I tried to get Boots and Bailey to pose for the photo-shoot picture, but they weren’t so keen on the photographer.  Instead they were sent outside and Milo shared the limelight with me!

I’m just kicking myself that the kitchen wasn’t {one} finished, nor {two} staged for a photo shoot!  We didn’t have a lot of options to choose from though, considering there was no furniture in the living room or dining room {due to the floor refinishing}. I was envisioning thinking that I could be sitting on the stairs with Boots and Bailey lying at my feet- yeah right.  Who was I kidding??

It’s been a very exciting week.  First we were nominated for the Best New Blog in RVA and now our first article in a magazine.  Maybe next week Martha Stewart or Nate Berkus will call and ask me for design advice. {ha-ha}

Seriously though, Mr. vB and I really appreciate all of your support!  We hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as we enjoy telling our story!  xoxo totty

We’re FAMOUS!!!

November 9th, 2009

Bootsandtotty.com was featured this past Friday on a very popular blog and Mr. vB and I couldn’t be more excited!!!!

I had submitted the before and after photos of our bathroom renovation to Young House Love in hopes of being considered for one of their “reader redesign” posts.  After what felt like years, but was probably actual only minutes, I received an email back from Sheri saying she loved our bathroom and was excited to showcase us on her blog.

Since our 5 minutes of fame, we have had over 2,800 people visit our blog!  We have also covered all 50 States and almost every continent! IT’s INSANE!!

Thank you to all the new readers who have linked to us from YHL.  We hoped you checked out the full bathroom renovation as well as stayed and poked around the other various postings.
