How is your summer going? Have you been able to take any trips? Grow a garden? Go swimming? Grill?
We hope you’ve enjoyed yourselves this summer. Our summer has been packed. We found a house and moved and became landlords! The day we moved our kids started swim lessons. I’m happy to say they only missed one day of lessons in the those two weeks but we were exhausted. Moving is not for the birds. 🙂 However, we are happy we found something in this market as our family grows.
Our small trips got pushed back as we weren’t planning on finding a house. So very soon we will pack in three weekend trips all while continuing to serve our clients during the weekdays. It’s just how the entrepreneur lives. 🙂 All our fellow business owners can relate, I’m sure.
As today is August 1st, I’m sending out our “please vote” reminder for all you wonderful people. Our company is again in the voting for Best of Omaha- Tile Installer.

Would you please vote for Phillips Tile & Stone LLC? Winning a business grant like this would only help us hire more talent and serve our customers better! Which is what we strive to do daily.
Let me tell you something, I stumbled across this pretty sweet small business grant and decided to push fear aside and GO FOR IT! Haven’t you ever heard, “Try something everyday that scares you?” If you haven’t, there is a slight possibility I made it up, but I’m positive I’ve heard it somewhere.
Well, a month ago I ran across this FedEx Small Business Grant Contest and decided to go for it! Here’s a little bit about Phillips Tile & Stone LLC. We exist because of YOU. Since 2010 we’ve been in business because our customers have referred us to their family and friends. That’s pretty much how we ran for a couple years. It was by the seat of our pants and learning as we go how to operate a business. Fast forward to now. 2020. We’ve learned a little bit in the past 9 years. We’re looking to hire more craftsman and marketing talent to expand and earning this small business grant would literally help us serve our customers and employees better! Which is what we strive for daily.
This contest voting runs through March 8th and you can vote for us EVERY DAY if you want! My due date is March 1st. I would be so grateful for your vote. We all would here at Phillips Tile & Stone. Thank you for letting us serve Nebraska (and Iowa) since 2010 with the best craftsmanship and customer service. It’s a true honor.
As Thanksgiving Day gets closer, I think it fills the heart to stop and consider all the people, things and circumstances we have to be grateful for. I’ve learned in my own life, when we stop and take time to be grateful, our mindset changes. One way I started purposefully putting gratefulness into practice is actually quite simple. I use the notes part of my iPhone and everyday (or everyday I remember!) I enter three NEW things I’m thankful for. This is something I’ve been doing for a few months so my list is long and only continues to grow. As I come up with three new things daily I’m thankful for, my mindset shifts to being grateful for everything that is in my life. A few items on my list look like this….
– A reliable, paid off vehicle
-fresh vegetables to eat
-freedom to worship God
You get the idea. The crazy part is, everyday, your thankful list will look a little bit different. It will reflect how a portion of your day has already gone. For example, say you went to the DMV that morning, and the lines were low. I would be thankful for just that, “Short lines at the DMV!” It’s not rocket science, but there really IS something to be thankful for in everyday. Once we unlock our eyes to see this simple truth, our mind does a shift and realizes we really do have so much to be thankful for and it was right in front of us all along.
We hope you and yours have a very Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving Day!
June is packed full of good dates to remember. At our place, June is a monumental month for Trevor. First, we have Father’s Day, then it’s Phillips Tile & Stone’s birthday then we celebrate Trevor’s birthday! This month was spent celebrating the man who steers this ship. Thank you to all our past and present clients, and a shout out to all the future clients we’ve yet to work with. Happy birthday Phillips Tile & Stone and Happy birthday to our favorite, Trevor Phillips!!
9 years as a company and 35 years young.
To celebrate, I made this easy no bake pie. In which I’m calling Life by Chocolate
It’s the easiest pie you’ll ever make and everyone loves it!
1 ready-to-use Oreo pie crust
1 large box chocolate instant pudding
3 cups whole milk
1 package Oreo cookies
1 tub of Cool Whip
additional Oreo cookies for garnish
Combine the large box of pudding mix and 3 cups whole milk. Stir together with a whisk until it is combined and thick. This will take about 5 minutes to thicken up.
Add the chopped Oreo cookies and stir together to combine.
Pour 1 1/2 cups of the pudding mixture into the bottom of the pie crust.
Drizzle with hot fudge.
Beat together the cool whip with the remaining pudding mixture and add this as a third layer to the pie.
Spread the remaining whipped cream on top.
Cover with the enclosed lid and let refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Refrigerating overnight is best.
When ready to serve, garnish the top with additional Oreo cookies and hot fudge.
