    Trying New Summer Looks

    Wasn’t it just a few weeks ago that I was complaining that it wasn’t hot enough?

    And now… it’s went from too cold to too hot. Sometimes I wonder if I can ever be pleased. Ha! Don’t consult my husband on that question.

    I recently did a photo shoot in the streets of my hometown with my friend Lauren and her adorable boutique called Eccentrics that I posted about HERE. This is the second set of pictures (with the other 2 outfit choices I went with).




    Inspire Me Please #67

    Welcome to the Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop.

    This week is our church’s summer conference and we are hosting some amazing young women! The boys are in awe of the fact that this house just went from an all boys house to a girls rule house. Ha.

    Take that.


    I might be kinda digging it too. Just a little.

    When I told Parker that we would be hosting EIGHT girls for the next few days…you know what he said?

    “Why not TEN?”

    And so it begins.

    How is he already girl crazy at age 6? I think I probably need prayer about this.

    Why Blog Readers Want To See Your Imperfect Life

    I met Abby last year when I went to Pittsburgh to visit my friend Natalie. She had been someone who I had been connecting with online so when she reached out to me, I suggested we meet up! I will let Abby tell the rest of the story.

    She just recently released her very first e-book about how she grew her blog in the first year! I love the way she writes and her honesty and transparency so I asked her if she would share with you guys a little sneak peek of what’s inside her book!


    Hey, House of Rose readers!! I’m Abby of Just a Girl and Her Blog, and I’m so thrilled that my sweet friend Mandy invited me to come hang out with you today!

    We recently had a pretty big event at my house. A few weeks ago {on my 30th birthday– eeek!} I released my very first eBook! After receiving a steady stream of emails asking me about how I run my blog, I recognized a need for a comprehensive blogging resource, and the idea for my book, Building a Framework: Everything I Learned My First Year of Blogging, was born. Though I feel like I still have a ton to learn about blogging, I also saw my little blog grow from one reader (my husband :) ) to over 200,000 pageviews each month, and since I love to write, I decided to put everything I had learned into book format and share it with bloggers and bloggers-to-be!



    My Fear of Speaking

    We were in Cozumel, Mexico back in January of this year. I was laying on the beach and Jeff had ran up to the room to grab me some more sunscreen. You know, at age 33 you gotta be worried about wrinkles.


    I thought I’d check my email from my phone since I was all alone on the beach. And when I went to refresh my inbox there was a message from J.D. Roth – who used to be the site owner of

    For those of you who have never heard of Get Rich Slowly…I’ll tell you this, my hubs was star struck by J.D. when we went to our FIRST ever FINCON over 3 years ago. Ha! He’s kind of a big deal in the personal finance space. Not to mention he sold his site for LOTS of money.


    The email said that he was wondering if Jeff and I would like to be keynote speakers at an upcoming conference in San Diego called Digital Co-Lab.

    I literally thought he accidentally included my name in there because, really, why would they want ME to speak? I’ve never spoke at any conference before let-alone given a keynote speech.

    I, of course, thought I’d just tell Jeff to go ahead and tell him that he’d do it, but that I wasn’t qualified enough. But before my husband even returned from his sunscreen run…I got another email, this time from my husband, saying, “Sure, we’d LOVE to!” 

    Sure, we’d love to??????
