HGTV Responds to the House Hunters “Scandal”

Blackened Chicken and Cilantro Lime Quinoa @ Sarcastic Cooking (I found this recipe on Pinterest and is SO good, we just used Grilled Chicken from Earth Fare, planning on making it again next week)

I’m slightly obsessed with this pallet daybed from Prudent Baby


Lastly, I can’t get this Wood Bead Chandelier out of my head since I saw it a few weeks ago at Tatertots & Jello.

I hope you have a creative weekend!


  1. Ok, so I have to ask… Did you see the ‘Nest’ pillow on PB.com?? Do you have it or do you get nest overload at times? I thought of you right away when I saw it :)

  2. Thanks for including my post :) Unfortunately, I’m not actually making it to many yard sales myself these days thanks to sleep deprivation. . .

  3. Hi there, Nester,
    Saw you at Haven, but didn’t want to stalk one of its stars, so I let you be! It was a great event! Maybe a little too “close for comfort”, but good, all the same. I was surprised by all the people there who didn’t have blogs yet, but we’re planning to start one. On the plane now and looking forward to being back home!

    • Barbara, you should have said hello!!!

      But I know exactly how you feel, I wanted to say hi to some people and could hardly bring myself too. Why do we do that to ourselves?

  4. Sweet of you to link to my “House Hunters” posts–now your readers can hate me, too. ;-)

    It was great seeing you in Atlanta! Lost track of you the second day but wanted to thank you for the ebook advice. Hope to see you again next year!

    • OH my word, seriously, please tell me no one has declared hate for you, that totally makes me laugh! I’m so glad we got to talk for a little while at Haven, I really enjoy your company and insight!

    Read ’em all Nester…very interesting. Thanks for introducing me to Emily Clark!
    Happy rest of the weekend!

  6. Great links. Checked em out.

    Interesting what a difference a month can make…
    I took a month off media while I listened to two great audio books. Somehow I missed the whole “House Hunters” thing. (I started reading the blog posts to my husband who already new all about it because of the news stories. Irony? LOL

    All the best,

    • I missed it too!!! I only knew because I was hanging out with Julia this weekend and she mentioned it, I thought I was the only one on Earth who missed it!

  7. I’m liking your weekend links. Found little nuggets each time. Have great week!

  8. Pallet daybed looks like a great idea for your playroom turned boys’ bedroom.

  9. I love your site so happy to be featured. I am so happy you loved the blackened chicken recipe.

  10. I will make sure to bookmark it and come back to learn extra of your helpful info. Thank you for the post. I will definitely comeback.
