Rachael Ray Roundup

I've got some big news to report! If you have the DIY network, you can see me on TV! My husband, Darcy, and I were ambushed in a hardware store and spent three days of madness getting our family room renovated. The show is called House Crashers and there's a show description for our episode and air times here. The host and the whole crew were professional and hilarious all at the same time. We are so glad we went through the experience and ended up with a great (and very lime green) room.

I have to give a special shout out to the designer, Johnny Kessler of Johnny K Designs, who did an absolutely outstanding job. He inspired us with his talent and creativity (and his ability and excitement about working on a tight budget). If you like his design and live in Northern California, let me know so I can refer you!

Back to Rachael Ray! Here are some Rachael Ray posts from around the blogosphere this week. If you see a post that you think would be good for the Roundup, or you write one yourself, e-mail me (everythingrachaelray at gmail dot com) so I can be sure to include it.


  1. Hey Madeline. Finally got to see your DIY episode. I don't have digital cable so it took me a while to hook up with my Dad who does. So cool! How is the setup now that you've lived with it for a while? Darcy of course looked cute and it was nice to see you & the hubby. Didn't notice any RR books in the background anywhere :)

  2. Thanks, Dave! It is still lime green. ;) We are still trying to decide whether we like it or not. I love the green in the morning and afternoon, but it's tough at night time because it is so darn bright.

    The RR books are all in the kitchen!
