Finally Friday: The Yostie Goes To………

March 16, 2012

This is a week or so late, but I knew who I wanted to award right away. Ashley at First Home Dreams was sweet enough to award me the Yostie, which is a new blogging award started by Lisha at One House One Couple. I really love this award because I feel there is some kind of Ann Arbor connection…even though there really isn’t. If you’ve been to Ann Arbor then maybe you drove by Yost Ice Arena, formally Yost Field House. The building was built in 1923 and is named after a famous University of Michigan football coach and athletic director Fielding H. Yost. If you know anything about me, I LOVE college football and I am Maize and Blue through and through. Go Blue! So, even though the Yostie has nothing to do with Ann Arbor or hockey – I just love the name. Thank you Lisha at One House One Couple – your last name rocks!

This blogger makes me laugh with her satirical writing, sassy attitude, and real life problems. It’s so good to read a blog where the writer is accounting real life, not some perfect image of what they want their life to be, because let’s be real – not all projects go as planned, and life gets in the way of most of the time.  So with no further ado, the Yostie goes to………

Money Pit Love

April talks about the type of snags a lot of us run into when we working on a project, like when she bleached the dining room chairs covers only to find out they had shrunk and no longer fit! Or when you think you’ve invented the next best idea to find out  a few other people invented it first…::sigh::

April, you make me laugh and the fact that you post almost every day keeps me in stitches! While I may not always be able to comment, I am reading. The rest of you should check out here blog because it’s fantastic 🙂 If you don’t have time to stop by the blog follow her on twitter for updates all day long.
