Yay thats exciting! I cant wait to see the shower ideas!

Brunch at Saks said...

Kelly- I LOVE your home tour Friday's. I have a fashion+design blog: and I want to do something similar for the design blogs, but I am not quite sure yet how to incorporate it! Anyway, have a nice day :) XO

MG said...

What a great idea! I love it!

Melissa said...

I can't wait to do all the wedding ones because I will be married by then! :D

Sarah said...

I love the home tours! I think you should have Surprise Days sprinkled in there. Then, that day you say "inside of your refrigerator, bathtub, etc." No quick cleaning it out or anything. Then, we'd all get to be real with each other instead of primping for an hour before we take a photo. ha! It would be fun! Anyway, just a thought!

The Whitakers said...

Love all the new ideas! I can't wait for Fridays to get here because of your blog. How bout Birthday party ideas???

G & H said...

Oh I love all those ideas and am so excited to participate !!!

Jennifer said...

I LOVE all the tour ideas! This will be so much fun!
And your new profile pic is really cute!

Imjustagirl said...

I love all your ideas and although I am not that technologically advanced I am going to try and participate:) Can't wait to see all the ideas!

Jessica said...

Great Ideas.......would love to see Birthday Party Ideas too!

Jess :) said...

Can't wait for the recipe weeks!! I always love reading your new ones, so having TONS to read through will be fabulous!!

It's hot here, as well and as I got your text about H liking to be outside...I was sitting in the Sonic drive through, just waiting for the clock to turn to 2:00. Of course, I got a kick out of it being as though all I wanted to do was call you and see if you wanted something!! :) Wish we lived closer to each other!

Love you lots, friend!

Natalie said...

you are so creative, Kelly!

Amanda said...

oooo! I like your line up of "show us" ideas. Thanks for hosting the Friday links Kelly. This is really fun! Have a great weekend :-)

Grecia said...

Kelly, I love your new background!!....but I'm having a very difficult time reading the text :( Is anyone else having this problem, or is it just my poor eyesight? Please don't change anything if I'm the only one having this problem. I'll make it through somehow!

Dina said...

Love all your ideas! I accidentally posted my playroom post on another on of your posts. Sorry!

The Stain Family said...

Fun, fun Kelly! I've been absent for a few weeks...busy, busy...hope to get back in the groove of things in time for the "show us your yard" post. It happens to be the part of our house that I'm proudest of! ha. Maybe it's because of its humble beginning.

Hoping to get a lot of good ideas for Raegen's playroom from this weeks post. Thanks again!

Gretchen and Jimmy said...

I love that you are doing this!! Soo exciting and fun!

Molly said...

Hey Kelly I know you're super busy and have a million people commenting to you. Just wanted to tell you I tagged you in a fun little blog quiz!

Love the picture of Harper you added on twitter, she is too stinkin cute even if she is upset! Have a great day!

Becky said...

oh boy! What fun...I will be working on my stuff to enter :)

Steph H. said...

I love touring everyones homes, so the weddings and such will be so much fun!

Julia said...

Awesome! I can't wait to participate. One day I'm going to go add every single room to your posts :)

Idea: what about show us your place of worship, or favorite Christian book/study?

Jenglamgirl said...

This will be so fun! thanks KELLY!!! ;)

Jessica said...

I love all of these ideas! I didn't participate in any of the house posts, but am excited to join in on some of the wedding ones! This is such a great idea, thanks for "hosting" it all :-)

Holly said...

Neat schedule coming up! I haven't participated yet but I'd like to start this week. :)

Heather said...

I love your ideas!! This is so much fun!!

harmonysong said...

Great ideas!! I can't WAIT for the dessert one in September!

How about Show us your favorite outfit in your closet? Show us your favorite pet- current or from the past. :)

Traci said...

Yea! I am glad that you are doing some fun stuff besides houses. I really didn't want to put up pics of the house we are renting at the moment..bleh!

purejoy said...

ohhhhh i have home envy. if only you would have your nightmare of a room day. perhaps the room we'd like to amputate from our home!! (i'd have a hard time choosing)
hope you're feeling better!

Claire said...

Woo! I can't do the house / wedding / baby ones, but I'm super excited to spy a couple I can do!


Mrs.Olson said...

I just wanted to let you know that I accidently added myself twice on your Where you Live friday sign up. Please feel free to take off my extra.


Cody Jean said...

So glad it hasn't gotten too hot here in Michigan yet!

Hope you're feeling better. We'll be praying for you.

EKM said...

i have TWO wedding dresses that were used as debutante dresses....i can share those... OR my graduation dress (also used for sorority initiation)-it is french handsewn. i am not married, nor engaged and have no cute house. but i love this idea!! and oh, i am without child, too. but i feel like i know harper. i loveeeee that name. she is adorable.

Snarky Mom said...

You should do a Birthday party carnival so we can show pictures and get ideas for future kids birthday parties. I love to get new ideas for parties!

Elizabeth said...

Kelly - I just wanted to thank you for posting all of the future sharing posts. I truly look forward to them! What a wonderful, positive and creative way to "meet" new people and gain new ideas! :)

Jennifer said...

Great ideas!

Another great addition starting in late September/early October, would be gift giving ideas, holiday decorating (fall, Thanksgiving, etc.), etc. I could always use gift giving ideas! :)

2slippers said...

How about a show us your pets?

Lana said...

I am so excited to see the line up of ideas! My wedding is July 11th and the wedding ideas are right afterwards...yay! What perfect timing!

Jen said...

That sounds like lots of fun. I have loved your home tour. I haven't participated because after my husband died I moved in with my parents. However, I will for sure participate in this one. Sounds like lots of fun.

An idea:
Show me your favorite purse?

Erin said...

Just wanted to share with you...we're having a girl!!!!!

The Doane Home said...

Hi Kelly! My first time doing Show Us Where You Live and I am so excited. I so enjoy your blogs. Keep up the great job.

The Doane Home said...

Ok so I told you I was new to this....sorry for the double link to my blog...I'm still learning how it all works:)

Carla said...

Loving the line up. Can't wait to join in on the party fun!

Amanda said...

Love the schedule! How about doing Holiday/Seasonal Tours too. Like how you decorate for Fall or Halloween or Thanksgiving... Thanks for hosting such a fun activity!

Team Alix said...

oohhh!! All the wedding ones look like fun! I can't wait to play!

To The Moon and Back said...

I look forward to this every week. Love to see what all your creative ladies come up with.

The Guess Family said...

Good luck with your diet changes. I pray that it makes a huge difference in Harper's world. My sweet little one screamed and screamed every waking minute, until I cut dairy, soy and nuts. 2 weeks later, I could harly believe she was the same child. She smiles all day, plays contentedly and sleeps well! It's a tough diet, but sooooo worth it.

Laura Beth said...

I love Fridays at Kelly's Korner! :)

Ashley said...

I love this every week and am so excited to go home and actually decorate our first real house at our next duty station when we leave Japan!

Val, Mike and Brax said...

love the idea of showing birthday party ideas for kids.
also, i have a hard time seeing your text against the background as well.... i have to highlight it to read it!
i love love love your show us carnivals!

Val, Mike and Brax said...

one more thing... could you post a link/button that would lead us to ALL your "show us" posts at once? i still haven't gotten thru all the mr. linky's!!!!

xinex said...

Great line up of sched., Kelly!...Christine

Heather Horton said...

I have a question...I am in the process of moving so I haven't been doing the home tours but I got married a year ago and would love to participate in the wedding ones! But...I don't know how! Can someone tell me how?!?

Crystal said...

I love the schedule! I am so looking forward to the wedding and shower tours since I am getting married in October!

Maya said...

I'm here for the first time, what a lively site this is. I'm happy to participate although my orange room might be a slight stretch..., it's a bonus room to us, but really it's a bedroom that we don't use as a bedroom. So I hope that you don't mind. Thanks!

Our Family said...

I love it! I am excited to post on the wedding ones...Everyones house looked so nice through the other..So I left off our small apartment pictures! :)

Southern Fried Gal said...

Wow! Over 100 posts already! I posted about the man cave. Hope I don't get in trouble - ha ha!

Kristen said...

Love all the new ideas! Looking forward to this continuing!

chickadee@afamiliarpath said...

oh kelly, i have no idea why i decided to join for the first time on this one. my laundry room is horrifying.

Grits414 said...

Love the tours! I thought today was room of our choice so feel free to delete mine if you's updated pics of dining and breakfast room tablescapes, redone. Sorry!

jaime said...

I love the topics of weddings - can't wait to share (and check other blogs out!)

Ruth said...

I love the home tours on Friday. It gives me some ideas for decorating, which I am terrible with doing.
Thanks to all who share their homes.

Sandy said...

LOVE all the ideas Kelly! Such fun!

Sarah said...

Yay! Love your ideas for the rest of the summer..can't wait to see what everyone has to offer. Thanks so much for all your hard work, I look forward to Fridays even more now than usual!!

Bethany and crew said...

Great ideas!! Thanks for taking the time to get the blogging community connected!!

And I want to say that your new profile pic is so pretty!! :)

Heather W said...

How about favorite children's outfit? Love your website. Thanks!

BOWquet said...

We're very excited to participate! Can't wait!

taralynn819 said...

This has probably already been suggested, but it would be nice to have a html button that links to all the "Show Us Your" posts.

I occasionally go back to them for inspiration, especially since we are just starting out in our new home. It would be great to be able to access all the posts together.

morethanthestarsinthesky said...

Thanks for hosting this Kelly! I hope your spirits have been lifted and you are feeling better.

Diana...aka...MeMe said...

Kelly, you are so clever!! Very fun ideas! Thanks so much!

KK said...

Hope you have a great weekend and pray you are feeling MUCH better.
Blessings today and always,
Matthew 21:22

hibnerfamily said...

I can't believe Harper is already 5 months old! She is so precious. I just love that little grin she has. Avery is now almost 14 months and I feel like it just gets more and more rewarding everyday.

Sue said...

Hi Kelly,

I've been a regular reader of your blog since January and have absolutely fallen in love with Harper. After going through hell with multiple miscarriages over the past few years, I am currently 5 months pregnant, due in October. Can you please do "Show us your baby gear - what you recommend and what you wouldn't buy if you had to do it all over again" earlier than Sept 18th - maybe sometime in August, so that I can learn from it? Thank you and God bless you and your family

Kari said...

Thanks for the opportunity to show our homes to world every week. Can't wait for the new stuff coming up. Fun. Fun.

Marcie said...

Thanks again for hosting this week. I can't bear to show my laundry room (doesn't help that we just returned from vacation and had piles and piles of laundry!!)but I shared my family room/playroom. Can't wait to see the rest of the rooms!

Dina said...

All the new "show us" ideas sound great!

Hey, how is your friend Katie doing? I keep thinking about her.

Missy @ It's Almost Naptime said...

Kelly, I have a great idea for you after September. I have been thinking this lately as I took ANOTHER big ole box of toys to Goodwill, because you know toys breed at night.

"Show us your kids' favorite toys." The ones they *actually play with* on a regular basis.

As opposed to the one you spent a lot of money on that is collecting dust, but you won't get rid of it because dang it, you spent a lot of money on it!

This would be perfect to do before Christmas.

Linda said...

Hi Kelly,
I have read where another commenter said she couldn't read your blog because of the background. Sometimes it appears white behind the words that you type and Harper's pictures. Other times, the blue background and brown flowers cover the screen and keep me from reading the blog. Today it happened again, and I'm not able to view the rooms that everyone has sent in. Not sure what is causing this, but it is frustrating as I feel like I'm missing out on what you have to say. Hopefully, you can figure it out. Thanks in advance!!!

Keely said...

Great ideas!

Mrs. Biscuit said...

Wait! Don't stop in September. How about a series of

what's in your handbag?
What's in your makeup bag?
What's in your travel bag?
(see the theme here?)

I love those kinds of posts!

meganbhulsey said...

I am so excited for the wedding and honeymoon pictures! I can't wait!

3boysmom said...

Yay, I cannot wait to see everyone's birthday party ideas. The home tours have been so much fun and I have gotten so many great ideas from them. Thanks for doing this, Kelly.

Sarah said...

Hey Kelly - how about a "Show us your pets" tour? I love hearing stories about how people end up with their pets and some of the quirky habits they all have.

Stephanie said...

Oh how I love a good stroll through folks homes while never leaving my own!! Thanks sooo much for doing this! I had a few ideas for future posts--
~What you despise most in your home (hopefully eliciting helpful solutions)
~Amazing before/afters
~Favorite splurge/bargain purchases
~Party themes and decorations (childrens' or dinner parties showing decor and food displays)
~Most useful items/organizational set up
~Do-it-yourself successes
Thanks again!!

Megan said...

Kelly you didnt post your room this week!!

Jen said...

Hi Kelly!

Just wanted to let you know that I added myself to the show me your Friday stuff. Where do I get the little icon to put on my blog for the next Friday?

Beth Haley said...

hey kelly - I love your friday thing so I'm joining the ranks :-) Looks like alot of fun

Amanda Faye said...
