What's Your Bridal Style?

My new book, What's Your Bridal Style, is coming out in just a few months - helping you define your wedding style as the NEW first step in planning before you even talk to your experts -- so it was very fun for me to find this defining-your-style for the *home* quiz (,,HGTV_22056_33320,00.html).

We're almost at the point where we can start thinking about style and decor with the new house...right now it's all about unraveling the history of the home...and I have a few choice words for whomever wired this place for electricity. We're almost through the puzzle of it, and things are starting to take shape because Joe is so amazing at forming plans and bringing it all together. Joe and I really needed his cousins' birthday and graduation party the other night...Polish family parties are outstanding, from the great food to the warm company, and on the drive home, we saw so many 4th of July weekend fireworks in the distance along the highway. At one point, it looked like we were driving right into them, like special effects from a movie. Quite pretty.

We're "In Process", but at least I'm starting to remember where I saw the box with the dental floss and where the flathead screwdriver is, and I got my first "oh, you look *so* much better" after a week of hearing how exhausted I look. We're so entering the Better Homes and Gardens home redecorating contest, with before and after shots of each room and full details of what we did to the place...I may throw in a 'before and after' of me so that the esteemed judges of said contest can consider a prize for best recovery from dark circles under the eyes ;)
