The Latest & Greatest

I am so sorry I've been MIA again but as I mentioned here, there are lots of big changes going on in my household.  First, we've relocated from NYC, where I've lived for the last 15 years, to Rhode Island, where I grew up and my parents live.  I'm so excited about decorating our first house and having a yard for the girls but it's taking a little adjusting to get used to life outside the city.  We're doing work on the place we bought so we're in a rental until everything is done.  We're still living out of suitcases which makes things a little challenging but I know it will all be worth it in the end.  Here's a peek at the house recently:

We've already re-seeded that nasty dirt patch in the front yard so just ignore that and the trees have been trimmed back so you can actually see the house.  It's amazing how much it's already changed.  I'll post more before and after pictures as the work gets done!

On top of the physical move, I've also made a big move career-wise.  I don't talk much about my "real" job here but I'm a television producer and left my staff job at a network that starts with M and ends with V (got that?) to join a production company that my husband started a few years ago called Mad Fusion.

After being at one network for a very long time, I'm really looking forward to working on projects for a variety of channels.  So if you start seeing casting calls or other TV-related posts here every so often, that's why!  If you want to stay up-to-date on what's going on with us at Mad Fusion, you can follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

So with all of the new things going on with me, I've decided to streamline AFOMFT a bit.  I don't want to continue this blog if it's going to be an afterthought so in order to make things more simple, I'll be posting on a specific topic each day and only doing one giveaway a week.  I know a lot of you love the giveaways, but they're a lot of work and I'd rather do one big one each week than a few smaller ones.

Here's what the new weekly schedule on AFOMFT will look like:

FUNDAY MONDAY - The new slot for our weekly great giveaway.

TEN THINGS TUESDAY - Ten things I'm loving that week.

PARTY PEEKS WEDNESDAY - A round up of my favorite parties and ideas for celebrating all sorts of events.

ANYTHING GOES THURSDAYS - Some weeks will have a guest post, others a DIY post and others a fashion post.  It's kind of like blog pot luck.

FREEBIE FRIDAY - Sharing a fun and fabulous new freebie.

PINSPIRATION SATURDAY - I find so many inspiring things on Pinterest so on Saturdays, I'll share the pins that are inspiring me most.

LINKS I LOVED THIS WEEK SUNDAY - My picks for the best of the blogosphere that week.

You may have noticed the mention of guest posters above.  If you're interested in doing a guest post on AFOMFT, e-mail me at with GUEST POST in the subject line.  You don't have to have a blog to guest post and you can share anything from a recipe or craft project to a decorating idea or party how-to.  I'd love to have you!

I've got a waiting list started for our weekly giveaways so if you have a product that you'd like considered for a giveaway on AFOMFT, fill out the form HERE and I'll get back to you ASAP.

So that's the latest and greatest from here.  I hope you'll enjoy this new incarnation of the blog and don't be too surprised if some decor-related posts start showing up here - my brain is in total house mode right now.  Oh, and our first FUNDAY MONDAY giveaway will go up shortly and trust me - you won't want to miss it!
