Nine times out of ten, you’ll find me working in the midst of chaos. It’s so bad, I actually have an incredibly difficult time working in a completely quiet studio.

I like to have the television on in the background and have a thing for reality shows. HGTV Design Star, Food Network Star, CELEBrations + a crazy little show called Dance Moms all make it into my DVR.

The fan-girl in my is pretty excited about our speakers this year (hint = more to come) + today I get to introduce you to one of my favorite television personalities…
