I'm doing the "Happy Dance"

Pin It Now!

I'm so excited! One of my dear blog readers just emailed me to let me know that my dining room is on the MAIN PAGE of HGTV's Rate My Space "Today's Most Viewed Rooms"! I can hardly believe it! YAY...I'm doing the happy dance! I'm so excited I may not be able to sleep tonight! Who would think that a 1960's rental fourplex decorated with thrift store and flea market things could compete with all the beautiful homes on there! Click here to see it (although it may not be on the front page for long) If it's not on the main page, click here for the link to all my rooms. I hope this post does not come across as bragging....I'm just so excited (and shocked beyond belief) that I just had to share!

Updated: If this wasn't enough excitment for one day... I just hit my all time high visits to my blog too! 600 people have visited my blog today and I want to thank all of you! 600 visits in one day! WOW!

We all know you're not bragging but you certainly have every right to! And I bet none of your faithful readers are one bit surprised that your home has made the top viewed list on RMS. You should give yourself a big pat on the back because you deserve it! You have a natural talent that surpasses many "pros." Congratulations again, Cindy.

WhooHoo! Congratulations. You deserve to be on the first page.
And, you're listed as one of the most viewed pics. I can't wait to see you home in a magazine. It's going to get there.
