Happy Holidays From GOMI

happy holidays from loliver and alice, who intends to beat this picture into the ground

Season’s Greetings, sad basement hams! This year I’ve sort of locked myself into a Fortress of Solitude while I navigate my first dry holiday season. I feel sort of meh and bored and just couldn’t get it up to post lately, so I thought ‘how about a GOMIBLOG roundup post of all the crap I’ve been too blah to deal with?’ So here you go, some random stuff I didn’t feel like posting the past couple of weeks! I know, I really make it sound exciting.

Pioneer Woman, that orange haired lady who sells Wal-Mart plates, is publishing a magazine next year.

The Pioneer Woman magazine will feature a strong emphasis on food, showcasing Drummond’s accessible style for cooking, meal planning and casual entertaining. Additional stories will cover fashion, lifestyle, family and culture/fun, along withpersonal anecdotes and photographs of her life on the ranch.

So I guess if you want to pay for her blog in paper form, your wish just came true.

Young House Love bought another house to ruin. This time it’s a vacation home.

Obviously, the ability to share another reno project with you guys is a nice perk, but when we couldn’t shake the idea of getting a second property even after stepping back from daily blogging two years ago, it helped confirm that our motives weren’t just hinged on creating “more content.” Also, there are probably easier ways to find content than buying a 96 year old house that’s 2.5 hours away and needs this much work. Ha!

I want to slap that ‘Ha!’ Anyway, they are also still doing that podcast I guess. So. There’s also that if you really miss Shurry Beff and Human Selfie Stick.

How long has it been since you got riled up about Freckled Fox? Well that’s too long. Get in there.

And finally here’s a thread where we can Scrooge it up while we try to figure out why Christmas has all the brilliance of grey flannel this year. Join me, won’t you?

Hope you all have a wonderful season whether you observe anything or not, and if you’re facing travel I hope you stay safe and have easy journies.
