“It’s the best time of the year,” that’s what our 8 year old likes to say! Merry Christmas from the Phillips family. We hope you are enjoying all the coziness this season brings. Is anyone else in disbelief we are already in December? January will usher in a New Year. To us, it felt like 2021 went incredibly fast. Every year we realize how fast a year can pass. We hope you conquered personal goals and made 2021 the most successful it could possibly be despite everything going on. If we have learned anything, we’ve learned grit and determination and prayer go a long way during difficult times. If 2021 was a difficult year for you, we’d be honored to pray for you.
2021 brought some highlights for us as a family/company and those highlights are…
-Finding out about baby #6, we are due in March of 2022! We are excited and praying for a healthy baby.
-Moving. We are so thankful we found a house with the market as crazy as it was. Is? Who is keeping track. 🙂
-Squeezing in a few family trips before summer ended. It was crazy, especially after moving trying to make all the trips happen that had previously been scheduled, but so glad that we made that effort.
-Winning Best of Omaha for Phillips Tile & Stone, THANK YOU to all who voted!! It’s not lost on us that YOUR votes are what made it happen. We will continue to provide and install exceptional craftsmanship and value to YOU, our clients.
-We are thankful for the connections we’ve made here in Omaha. We are finding so much joy in deepening our roots in this wonderful city we’ve been planted.
Thank you for being our family friend or a friend of the company. We appreciate you all so incredibly much. Merry Christmas!

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. When we won last year, we actually didn’t even know we won until we checked the company P.O. box. It was a wonderful and special surprise that we attribute to ALL OF YOU because of your votes.
Guess what, we back! We need your help!
We would absolutely love to have your votes again. This small, family owned business is grateful to be in our 11th year of business and we strive daily to push out amazing projects for our clients.
Happy May Day, to all you beautiful people. The sun is shining and it’s a glorious day in Omaha, Nebraska. We’ve got three boys in baseball with Trevor coaching one team. I’m not sure who needs to hear this, but go enjoy this season of life! Plant the garden. Book the vacation. Sign up for the class. Order the swimsuit! Give it a whirl.
I hope you decide life is exciting and choose to make the steps to go for it!
On the business side of life, we are working hard at getting all the projects installed. Our team is out there doing what they do best. Installing spaces you (our client) adore. On the family side of life, out family is growing up and we are trying to cherish all the moments.

If it’s alright with you, I’d like to share 10 things we are thankful for that happened in 2020 for our family and Phillips Tile & Stone. As a small, family business, we have felt all the feels this year. Growth, stretching, momentum, tiredness and lots of hard work are some words I would use to describe this year. Here are 10 things we are thankful for this year.
Our rainbow baby boy was born! He came fast and furiously on February 26th, right before the world was paused. We are so thankful for him!
We were able to still participate in Awana at our church. The older four kids enjoy it and Trevor enjoys being a Sparks Leader.
We created a co-op! It has been such a blessing as we homeschool and we weren’t sure how the school year would look. Creating this group has been such a good outlet for both fun and educational.
Phillips Tile & Stone won Best of Omaha Tile Installer! Thank YOU to all who voted. We work hard to make our clients happy!
We made a few more of our own home improvements.
Our family was able take a couple short vacations. One was glamping in a beautiful cabin by a lake with wonderful friends and the other was to The Elms. It was so refreshing to have these short getaways!
Phillips Tile & Stone turned 10 years old and we celebrated with local giveaways on our FB and IG accounts!
Trevor and Michelle celebrated 11 years of marriage.
Trevor coached baseball while our older two played. The boys also were able to play soccer and continue piano lessons.
Through everything that happened this year, we were still able to work and provide service to our clients while providing for our family, our employees and their families! We are grateful. So grateful. Thank you to all our clients this year!!
This year we saw God provide again and again. No matter how your Christmas looks this year, remember that the Savior of the world was born in a lowly stable. He was born to die for my sin and yours. You are loved by Him. Jesus is worthy to be praised!
I sat here for a few minutes wondering exactly how to start this blog post. I’ve already started and deleted many sentences because this topic is so near and dear to my heart. So here is what I WILL say. We love our Omaha and we want our city to succeed and thrive! So how can we help our city thrive? How can we help Omaha thrive?
We can support local!
How do we do that? Why would we do that?
Local businesses are essential for our economy. Local businesses create employment, growth and innovation! Local businesses are what make OUR city unique!
It’s also fun to support local. If you want something unique, support local! Here are some of my favorite local Omaha spots. Have you been to a spot you love? Tell me. Trevor and I would love to try it out on one of our date nights.
The hour at which I’m writing this blog post is silly because my stomach is aching for some of these delicious foods. Let’s turn up the noise on supporting local! Tell me your best local Omaha spot, I’d love to hear!
The construction business is alive and well and we need to add to our already gifted team! We are looking to hire a Skilled Tile Setter. When we say skilled, we mean it. A minimum of two years tile setting experience is needed to apply. We will pay generously and offer PTO. This career will allow you to show off your craftsmanship while leaving the headache of business to us to handle.
