Best of the Nest 2009 Edition :: And a LINKY

Don’t you all want to read all about what I think my best posts were for 2009?  Sometimes I feel like all I do is talk about me and my big self and my big fat opinions and {insert Charlie Brown’s teacher’s sounds} my big imperfect lived in, house.  I’m like Nellie Olsen as a grown up with a house and a blog.  Thanks for sticking around in 2009.

Is Your Rental In Foreclosure? We had to move because the owners of our rental didn’t pay their mortgage.  I never found out why and I cried when I knew we had to move.  Guess what, we ended up in a MUCH nicer home for just a tiny bit more per month.

10 Ways to Avoid Having a Home You’ll Love

Ok, this is totally off the cuff, as I’m sitting here writing all about me and my big blog and my big self and my big favorite posts, I started wondering what your favorite posts are from your own blog in 2009.  So, I’m adding a MckLinky.   What was your favorite post of 2009 on YOUR BLOG?  It doesn’t have to be housey {even though housey stuff is my favorite to stuff to read about online} maybe it’s a post where you were particularly funny or something hard that you went through.  Link to whatever you want.  As long as it’s not an ad.  Or p@rn or a mean post about the Nester and Nellie Olsen.  Happy 2010~I love you all dearly!

  1. LOL!!!!!!!! ha ha ha ha ha

  2. This may be my first, delurking comment?
    But this wallflower just really needed to whisper:

    You are all that’s good of Ma and Pa and Laura and don’t have an ounce of Nellie in you, sweet Nester!

    You do grand Nellie-stye things — with all Laura-heart.

    And so you are loved!

    Inspired by you, again and again…
    All’s grace,

  3. I love all your posts, Nester. I couldn’t pick just a few. The 31 days to a better dressed nest series was fantabulous! Maybe in 2010 you can tell us ladies with open floor plans how to chose fabric for mistreatments and paint for the walls? My hubby and I are looking at a new house with a kitchen that opens into a living room and I’m lost!

    Can’t wait to see what you have for us in the new year!

  4. Oh and where to hang curtain rods when you have decorative trim around your windows! :)

  5. Nellie Olson – that made me laugh. I am quite sure you are not anything like her. And that last video – oh my goodness, that is just too much!
    Happy 2010!

  6. I’ve been lurking on your blog all year long, but the Nellie Olson has got me out of lurk mode. Now I love you even more : )

  7. Happy New Year! Wanted to drop by & say thank you for all the wonderful decorating ideas this past year & wish you a very blessed 2010! I love your blog! Your Christmas decorations were beautiful! Your blog has been such an inspiration! That last “baby” dancing video was too funny! Patti

  8. I am pretty new to blogging and have been “hanging out” on your site for a while. I always find inspiration and can’t wait for more. Today I even made a monogram wreath that you inspired me with. Thanks again and can’t wait for more new things in 2010.

  9. New to your blog – I’m not sure what my fave post for my own blog would be – maybe next year – enjoying your blog and planning to continue visiting now that I’ve found you! Still looking through a lot of your older posts and finding a lot of gems!

    The “rental in foreclosure” caught my eye – we thought for sure this was happening to us recently, but thankfully it turned out the owner was having problems w/the mortgage company that bought his mortgage and changed some things up – he got things worked out and all is well. I was worried someone was going to show up on the doorstep any day and tell us we had 10 days to get our or some such – ugh! With 5 small children, I was pretty concerned! As it turns out, we were remotivated in our home buying search and are now under contract on a new home that will be built and ready, Lord willing, in April! Yay! I’m glad things worked out for you too!! Happy New Year!

  10. Just stumbled on your blog from another blog. Love your post, pics and ideas. I have a house in progress. Hope to gain lots of inspiration from you.
