This was absolutely fascinating to read! Thank you for being so honest about your experiences. I wish I was more handy so I could make some of the bigger projects like the dining room table! Cat
Aww, these are so adorable! Now I won't need to pick between apple and pecan pie either, hehe. If only we could fit pumpkin in there as well :) Cat

This would be the perfect sort of basket to put by the front door to collect keys, gloves, the dog leash, etc. So chic! Cat

Thanks so much for this tip, Michelle! I find the taste to be a little difficult (unless it's ground up in a smoothie, haha), so I'm willing to try anything!

Haha, I was actually just googling kale recipes last night! It's delicious in smoothies, but I find the taste to be a little bitter on its own. I love the idea of adding some sweetness with an apple. I'll definitely be giving this a try! Cat

I love all the awesome sculpting projects you guys have done lately. 3D art was never really my thing (I was always more a photographer and painter), but my mom has been getting super into sculpting and pottery, so I'll pass this along. It's totally her style, too! Cat
Ooooo, I bet other candy might work as well, like jelly beans or Starbursts! The colors on these Jolly Rancher infusions turned out beautifully. I've experimented with fruit and herb infusions before too, with great success. Honestly a strawberry infusion tastes an awful lot like candy, too! Cat
I've been playing around with the Party Party app and love the idea of using the photos for a physical project! This would absolutely match my decor at home. Cat
I'm so happy it's finally time to break out the fall fashion! Three cheers for boots and blazers! You guys look adorable :) Cat

I'm one of those lucky girls with curls, or at least waves, so I'm pretty excited to give this a try! It's so chic, and I'll bet it would work even better on hair that hasn't been washed in a day or two. Cat

Paired with the recipe I posted on my blog today, bacon caramel popcorn, we have the start to a pretty excellent Halloween party! These are so incredibly adorable, and I'm super impressed by how perfectly you matched the jello colors to the real candy colors. Cat

Oh man, what beautiful treats! Those "sausage" rolls sound incredible. I'll have to give it a try! Cat

Oooo, cute! I love the distressed look as well. That picture of Audrey Hepburn inside is adorable too, hehe. Cat

I noticed this in your fire pit DIY and remember thinking how cute it looked! This is a bit out of my experience level, but it's gorgeous. Cat
What a fantastic idea for a theme! It looks like you guys found and made so much adorable star and moon decorations. Cat

Oooo, congrats on the new KitchenAid! That is so incredibly exciting. I actually just shared this whipped body butter DIY on my blog that required 10 minutes of beating. It would have been exhausting with a hand blender, but I literally just flipped my KitchenAid on and walked away. Amazing! Cat
Haha, these look so very much like the sort of aesthetic I've come to expect on ABM. I'm not sure they're for me, but I love how they look in your space! Cat
As someone who can't eat tomato sauce without a serious stomach ache, this sounds amazing! I love what a bright, colorful look this dish has, too. Cat

How cute are the patterns on these dresses! They're gorgeous cuts as well. I love how one of you styled them with short boots, the other with tall, so we can get an idea of what they both look like. Cat

Squee!! This is so exciting! Absolutely thrilled for this next step for you guys and your team. I've been needing a new planner too, so maybe I'll hold off on getting one - I can't wait to get a peak ;) Cat
Hahaha, I kid you not, I was literally just looking at cronut recipes yesterday, before deciding they looked too difficult to make. There just aren't that many places around here that make them! Definitely getting pinned to my "must make and consume" Pinterest board :) Cat
Haha, no need for a kids' room, I can only imagine how much fun my adult friends would have with this during a party. They already spend hours creating poems out of the word magnets on my refrigerator... Love the adorable photo you chose as well, Rachel :) Cat
Yay, another ABM video!! You guys should 100% do more of these. I think it's sweet you're having Holly teach us crocheting just in time for us to get some projects done for the holidays. I have to learn how to crochet in more than just a straight line! Cat
I love cooking, but using things from the box is also a-okay with me! This look so easy. Perfect for a small party! Cat

I'm wracking my brain to try and think of one, Dani, and I honestly can't (and I'm a voracious reader!). I think that speaks to the significance of Middlesex. On a separate note, my stepmom grew up in a conservative ranching community and never understood homosexuality. She moved to the Bay Area when she married my dad, and her view on the topic was totally transformed when she watched Brokeback Mountain. How incredible is that, when a book or movie can profoundly change the way you look at a group of people? Cat
