It’s Blogiversary Time Again! GIVEAWAY ALERT!

By | November 20, 2014

Winner has been chosen! Congrats, Lauren!

Blogiversary winner 14

This week marks two years of this little blog and we are super excited to celebrate with all of you!

I’ve been wanting to do some updates to our design, so be on the lookout for those coming up in the next few weeks. Life’s been crazy around here and that doesn’t leave much time for blog updates. But hey, remember when our site used to look like this?

Home Page View

Just for fun, here’s some stats for you about our little community here, in case you’re curious.

If you’re reading this, you’re one of about 282 visitors that comes to our site each day. That’s over 8,000 views each month. Over the last two years, you and 158,000 other peeps have stopped by our little corner of blog world. We’re amazed every day that you guys are here and that you’re still reading about out kitchen about all our adventures.

We currently have 718 posts on our site. Wowza. And, there have been 4,338 comments so far. That blows my mind.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for following along on our journey! Seriously, you guys are the best. 

For those of you that are new, last year we tried a fun blogiversary tradition from our “wish-we-knew-them-in-real-life-bloggers” John and Sherry at Young House Love.

Sadly, they are no longer blogging, but we had so much with our video last year, we decided to do it again! So, that means it’s your turn to ask us a question!

Here’s last year’s video, for a refresher. The outtakes at the end are my favorite part. Maybe this year, we’ll do the whole thing outtake style.

Also, you know what else blogiversary means—it’s time for a giveaway!

Here’s what is up for grabs:

  • $25 giftcard to Walmart
  • $10 giftcard to HomeGoods
  • $5 giftcard to McDonalds

That’s $40 worth of prizes, guys, so one of you is going to have an extra happy holiday! I wish you could all win, but someone will, so be sure and enter so you don’t miss out.

Blogiversary Giveaway

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post, either asking a question for our blogiversary Q&A video or just saying hi, and we’ll pick a winner at random. Super easy, right?


Plus, you get the added fun bonus of asking us a crazy/personal/silly/super-duper-serious question. It will be tons of fun, I’m sure. What’s more fun than free stuff and fun?

    Love reading about all your adventures, from vacations to remodeling. You two are so talented & I’m proud to be part of your family! Love you two so much!!

  2. Jillian

    Hiiiiiiiiiiiii 🙂

    My question is: When do I get to see you guys? I miss you!

  3. mrsecarver

    My question is: cats vs. dogs and why? I already know who prefers which, but I’d like to hear your reasons and so might other readers. At school, we are doing a supply drive for the animal shelter and there are some pretty funny posters the students made since it is cat v. dog themed. My fav. is: “4 out of 5 scientists prefer cats. The other one is Mr. Jones.” Mr. Jones is one of our science teachers and he loves dogs and hates cats.

    My question is……when you run out of diy & remodeling to do on your own house, can you work on mine?

  5. Ashley K

    I second Jill’s question! 🙂 Hope to see you two soon. Hmmm a question…. I’m excited to see your eventual basement remodel. Are you thinking a living room space? Man cave? Guests quarters? Playroom? Any solid ideas? And I’m excited to see what you guys come up with for your basement railing in the living room!

  6. Katie

    Hey, guys! We miss you so much, but I feel like I’m in touch with you since I read your blog. One, your kitchen is going to be out of this world! Two, what has been your favorite DIY that you could do in one afternoon (short and sweet)?

  7. Erin!

    If you weren’t blogging about home remodeling/DIY what would you write about?

  8. donita

    I love getting to see all the little steps you show. I love that you both contribute to the blog. My question is what is the one thing you would rather hire out than do yourself?

  9. laurenbtrain

    I just want to know how yall have the patience for the remodeling!! Having the vision and the ability to do it is super impressive already and then the patience really blows my mind!!! Clearly I am all about some instant gratification! haha.

    Hi! I can’t wait to see the floors!! Hopefully, you’re already just looking at them done! 🙂 How upset/disappointed do you get when you don’t get something finished within your “timeline”? How do you deal with that? I started work on my fixer upper on Wednesday, and I already feel like I had a lofty timeline in my head… just curious how you guys handle it!

    When your kitchen is done, any thought on blogging about some awesome recipes you might whip up? I love finding recipes for new sweet treats!
