  1. OMG!!! I went to see Kendra’s past flip house and she did a fabulous job! To be able to see a vision and actually make it come true is quite a talent. Her finishes are beautiful. The exterior went from a tired, run down and sad look to a bright, cheerful look. I really think she cold have her own TV show. We have 2 episodes of the last season of Shetland to watch. Like you, I’m sad to seem them go and I hope they’re able to have a new season. The characters are so endearing it makes me want to see where everything goes. The best part of the show is that it’s believable…… I have a hard time watching shows where the story lines seem far-fetched.

  2. I love Kendra’s vision! What a treat for new homeowners to walk into such a beautiful space and just start making their own memories!

  3. 100% agree with you on “Big Summer”.
    I have loved all her books and was very disappointed in this one.

  4. I think your daughter did a marvelous job on the flip house you linked to!! I looks nice on the outside, but it is a huge surprise to see how the inside is very spacious feeling and with the light color…so smart making another bathroom and closet …and as one ages, that walkin shower will become even more important. The deck out back is just wonderful too!! GREAT IDEAS!! Years ago when we built a house (with help from friends and kin) the outside looked fairly plain. We wanted it to appear less fancy as that is one way to hopefully not get broken into (so far as I know, it never has)…and the inside was very open and spacious and pretty…people never expected to see how it was inside from the outside view!! Sadly we only lived in that house a couple years. All that entailed our moving away led to us not ever feeling the same nor trying to build another. And now we are old. What became important was just having a place that was comfortable. And that is still our goal…and now we live in a 55+ apt bldg with the issues that can come with that. For the most part it is fine.

  5. I chuckled when I read your comments about Kendra, and thought, “that Kendra 🍎 didn’t fall far from the Brenda 🌳. It’s lovely that you have your daughters close by, and Kendra shares your passion. I’m thinking it makes for interesting, and fun, conversations.😊

  6. Oh I enjoyed looking at the flip house your daughter previously completed. She is a very talented builder! Love the kitchen and big island. Sounds like you went to Southwood Nursery…I live in OKC and it’s a real treat to visit Tulsa and go there. Will be making our fall trip there soon to get my pansies and mums. Are there any other nurseries you like in Tulsa?

  7. I’ve never read any of Jennifer Weiner’s books – is there one you recommend. Sorry this last one was a bit of a bust.
    Can’t wait to see pics of the flip house – your daughter does beautiful work. You can tell she cares.

    1. I’ve liked every other Jennifer Weiner book I’ve read. I guess I tend to read crime/mysteries so chick lit sometimes bores me.
