Kate is having a very fun linky party that I just had to join! While waiting and waiting for construction to start in my craft room, I have continued to blog in my usual spots. In the kitchen on the “wrong side” of the bar is usually where I blog. The kids sit across from me working on an art project, or eating a snack, or what have you while I share some inspiration. But THIS atrocity is what my computer is currently sitting in. Yeah. I know. Embarrassing. Notice I have a cucumber, a chisel, a phone, a glue gun, and an empty water glass all to the left of me. We won’t even get into what is on the right of me. Ugh. How’s this for an inspiring disaster area?
So, I usually take my MacBook upstairs where it is much more serene and no one bothers me in my Master Suite. Oh, how I am soooooo going to miss having an entire level of the house to myself when/if we move :(. My bed is a great place to blog, but I always have the same problem…
…trying to get comfy while holding a laptop!
By the way, today I am 36 so feel free to wish me a happy b-day :)! How’s that for subtle?
Happy Belated Birthday! (Sorry, now that Superman is back overseas, I am catching up on all my blogs…)
Let's see, where do I blog. Normally on my desk, but that is because I finally figured out I am ADD and that my OCD tendencies help me be productive!) Superman also bought me a laptop when he left (computer geeks believe you can never have too many computers), so I typing this at the dining room table, but it feels weird.
I love the idea of blogging in bed-which I really only do while in a hotel, because it's just not as comfy as you want it to be!
Carmen @ Life with Sprinkles on Top says
Happy Belated Birthday! I only have desktop computer, *gasp*. I know, right. But if I had a laptop, I'd totally be blogging laying in bed. Why would you be moving? I must have missed that.
Ha ha I am typing this on my bed as we speak!
Am I too late to wish you a happy birthday! Happy birthday my friend!! I hope you had a wonderful day and celebrated the fact that the world got to be a better place because you are in it.
Popcorn Served Daily says
Love your blogging spot. If I blogged in my bed I would totally rack out. I'm lazy like that!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I love you sweet photos…they are so cute! That chandy ROCKS! THANKS for the sweet comment on my blog!
Happy Happy Birthday to you! I am the same way with blogging. It is anywhere that there is a seat.
Amy Jo @ The Little Moments says
Happy Birthday Beth! Hope you have a great day

We share the same birthday! Happy BD to you. I wish I could say I was still in my 30's but this is my last year in my 40's. I just keep plugging along!
Happy Birthday!! Your bedroom looks so pretty and serene. Now that my youngest is off to the big Kindergarten I'm tackling the master bedroom! You've given me inspiration. 🙂
Happy Belated Birthday!! a day late and a dollar short I guess!! 🙂 I can only post in one place because I have a desktop…so right in the middle of my living room is where I blog…but yes I remember how uncomfortable using a laptop in bed was when I was in college! You need a desk girl!

Mom Taxi Julie says
Happy Birthday! You've caught up to me for a few months!
Kim @ Starshine Chic says
Happy, happy birthday. It is technically still your birthday here in California. All the fabulous people have August birthdays. Ask me how I know. lol.
I just love how real you are. And I'm glad to see that I am not the only one who doesn't have an office in which to blog. I put my laptop on my lap as I'm sitting in a recliner in my family room. But I was too chicken to blog about it.
Happy birthday again.
Happy, happy birthday! My birthday is next weekend. . . so I am almost exactly 11 years older than you. Hope you're not feeling old, because that would make me ancient! 🙂
many birthday wishes!!! i just turned 40, it stinks, but i am not complaining! you need a lap desk or a chair pillow!
Happy Happy Birthday Beth! May all your dreams come true!
Cheers! Jennifer aka Gigi
Happy birthday! Something that might help you to be a bit more comfy while typing in your bed is what I call a "husband," but is really nothing more than a large pillow to be used as a backrest. They have decently priced, stylish ones at Anna's Linens!
The mad woman behind the blog says
Happy birthday my fellow Virgo! You don't look a day over 25! And neither do I!
Now where did I put my glasses?
Happy Birthday!! I love that your countertop looks like mine. 🙂
a happy, happy birthday to you!
lol, i have the same problem with getting comfortable with the laptop on my bed.
Happy Birthday Beth! I love your bedroom and I'm glad all the little bugaboos are gone. Have a great one!
Wishing you a very happy birthday! I hope you have a beautiful celebration of YOU!
Happy Birthday! Love the bedroom…it looks so nice. I blog at my desk on my PC., in the craftroom/paintingroom/office! lol
Debra from Bungalow says
Happy Birthday Young'un!
I'd love to be 36 again!
Seriously, hope you have a great day!
Happy birthday! Found your blog through Kate's link party and I love your bed room – so pretty!
Hope you have a great birthday. From a fellow 36-year-old. 1974 must have been a good year! Blessings!
Happy Birthday! I really enjoy your blog.
Happy Birthday!!!!! I hope you have a wonderful day!
Cherry Chick says
LOL…I love your subtle announcement…Happy, Happy "B" Day to you!
I'm either in my bed blogging (on a little "bed table" or sitting on the couch. Never in the office. I agree it's sometimes hard to get comfortable in the bed. I suggest lots of pillows to support your back.
Happy Birthday. May you have a wonderful day!
Oh,to be 36 again! Happy Birthday!
Blogging in bed sounds pretty good to me. Happy Birthday!
Being subtle isd over rated…HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Happy birthday!! I love your bedroom!
Julia @ Hooked on Houses says
Hope you have a beautiful birthday, Beth, and best wishes for a wonderful year ahead! xo
Happy Birthday Beth!! Hope it's a great day for you!
Happy Birthday 🙂
Shel at Dreamy Nest says
Happy birthday sweet Beth!!!!! 🙂
Gah – I'm still older than you… *sigh*
LOL – I love that you shared your space, in all it's wonderful glory.
Seeing all these bloggers with laptops is making me want one, but I just can't do anything on laptops fast enough.
So, what are your fabulous birthday plans??? xoxoxoxo
Happy Bday Beth! hope you enjoy your day!
LUCKY 7 DESIGN says
Hey Beth, glad we were at the same party. I took a tour of your home and love your style. The brick in your dining room is to die for..lol. I plan of coming back to click around later, just wanted to send you a little message and say hi.
Pam @ diy Design Fanatic says
I think my bed is a great place to blog… I just pile up a bunch of pillows for my back and sink in. I love having my feet up. My bed is a memory foam, though and my behind leaves a huge (hopefully not permanent) hole until it springs up again!
Amie Bleu~♥ says
Happy Happy Birthday!!!!!
I LOVE your blog….and your house! lol
Maryann @ Domestically-Speaking says
LOVE your chandie & Happy Birthday!
Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions says
Well, Happy Birthday, Beth! : ) I agree, a bed is a difficult place to sit and use the laptop, unless you've got some good back support. I am constantly moving around when I'm on mine ~ from the desk to the couch mainly. Plus it depends on whether I'm typing a post or reading a post.
Patty B. says
A happy birthday to you !

the cape on the corner says
happy birthday! hope you have a great day. i don't want you to move, lol, i love that you live in the city and have a "different" house/neighborhood, and that is what i like reading about!
Happy Birthday! What project do you have going on in the kitchen?! It's nice to be able to get away sometimes. When I sit on our bed I use one of those bed trays over my lap. It helps me stay comfortable and keeps the hot laptop from burning my legs!
Melissa Miller says
Beth you are just so adorable in your blogging spots.
Happy Birthday! ~Enjoy!!! 🙂
Kendra@My Insanity says
Happy birthday! I'm a little too embarrassed to show my extremely messy work area, but thanks for showing your kitchen. It makes me feel a little better about my desk, and reminds me that creativity is messy.
Your bedroom is gorgeous, however! (Mine is another disaster area in my house–ugh! I need to make it a retreat, like yours!)
Hope your day is great!
Jen~ Lipstick and Laundry says
Happy Birthday, I shall join the 36 club in Nov….
I can't get comfy in bed with the laptop either!
Happy happy b'day!
Happy Birthday!! Love your bedroom! 🙂
Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday dear Beth….. Happy birthday to you!
Now can I go have cake?
Have a WONDERFUL day!
Happy Birthday Beth! Your blog is awesome and I just wanted to say hello…I have a link on mine under the heading SERIOUSLY COOL 🙂
Happy happy day!!! Love the pics beth:)
Amanda @ Serenity Now says
Hope you have a wonderful and special birthday!! 🙂
I think that both of your blogging spaces are great. I also blog mostly from my kitchen. I have a great view of stacked up newspapers from my table. 😉
Visiting from Kate's today!
Nina Patricia @ The Adventures of Nina Patricia says
A vErY HaPpY BiRtHdAy!!
May God grant you many more full of love, laughter, hapiness, health and wealth. And may you find a confy chair to sit your tush in your brand new room 😉
Happy Birthday Beth! You don't look a day over 30 🙂
Empty Nest Full Life says
Happy Birthday to YOU! Jackie
LOL happy birthday Beth!!
Well, happy birthday!! =D Love that bed cover and the chandelier!
If you're not doing anything with that cucumber…I'd be happy to take it off your hands. I LOVE cucumbers!!;P
the BLAH BLAH BLAHger says
First, happy birthday.
Second, I love the real shot of the kitchen. I usually shove the mess to the corner when I take a blog pic…and then it sits there for a while until I FINALLY decide to organize. ; )
Brooke Trogdon says
Happy Birthday! Absolutely LOVE the chandelier above your bed!
Happy birthday Beth!! Enjoy your day!!
Bee's Place says
Happy birthday. If you ever figure out how to use a laptop comfortably on a bed let me know. I have a home office and mostly work there. Once in a while I move mine to the kitchen table.
Centsational Girl says
Ha, you are too cute !!! Happy Birthday friend ! Love your new linens in your room, so pretty. Thanks so much for linking up !
Happy Birthday!! It's always inspiring no matter where you blog! 😀
Happy Birthday Beth!!! 🙂
Happy 26th Birthday:)
I love the stone backsplash in the kitchen…did you do it yourself & if so do you have a post about it?
HaPpY bIrThDaY!!!!!!! And I <3 your room… it's purty!
