• Tell Your Friends

Happy Friday, everyone! I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t be happier that this week is drawing to an end. Before we all take off for the weekend, I have some end-of-the-week cuteness to share.

When Cara, a fellow HGTV.com co-worker and working mom, shared with me this adorable wish-list that her 10-year-old daughter wrote for her, I knew I had to share it with all of you.

You see, Emmaline is starting middle school in the fall and Cara told her that they needed to spruce up her bedroom a bit — she’s getting older and her room needs to reflect that. Mom was thinking a new comforter and perhaps organizing Emmaline’s bookshelves. But as you can tell, Emmaline has other ideas.

All of us in the office are backing Emmaline 100%. Her requests seem very reasonable to this design-oriented crew. Cara, this is what you get for taking your work home!

Kids have great style, too (especially the kids of HGTV.com employees).
