A Thankful, Small Business Saturday

We hope you are finding many reasons to be thankful for this year. Thursday, we celebrated Thanksgiving. As much as I tried, I couldn’t slip away to write a Thanksgiving blog post. We have so much to be thankful for this year. So with a grateful heart, I will still write because a thankful heart is good year-round.

This year our sixth baby was born. Birth is a miracle and we thank God for the blessing of children. We celebrated our third consecutive Best of Omaha Tile Installer win! We are so grateful for the clients, family and friends who take the time to vote for Phillips Tile & Stone! We thank God for renewed health, provision and another year of memories.

Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday. We strive to give our clients the best installation price, while also installing quality. We don’t play a number game, so there won’t be any glitzy sales or promos. We’d rather spend our time installing amazing spaces for our clients. So even though we aren’t having a discount day, please continue to show support to local, small businesses. Your referrals, likes, comments, and continued support help provide a purposeful living for several local families. Thank you for trusting Phillips Tile & Stone with your construction needs!

Best of Summer

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. πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ™‚ 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.

Here is our quick vote code link to vote in Best of Omaha. Please vote for your other favorite Omaha businesses as well. Small businesses need an encouraging boost, and this is just the ticket to do so!

New Growth

As we move into spring, I’m encouraged. I’m encouraged by new growth. As I watch my tulips grow and begin to blossom, I see a beautiful miracle. To those of you who have caught the garden growing bug, like myself, it’s addicting to watch new life burst through the ground from those tiny seeds or bulbs you planted. It’s addicting to watch grass gain color and fullness. It’s sometimes a pain to cut said grass, but that’s not my point.

We love to watch nature grow, but how have YOU grown as a person? Have you ever taken the time to write out your dreams? Do you know how to make those dreams into small goals to accomplish everyday so you CAN reach those dreams you’ve got?

Here at Phillips Tile & Stone, we like to dream. We like to plan. We like to accomplish.

I’m here to challenge you to dream and to plan. Do you want to remodel a room in your home? Do you want to take a trip? Do you want to get healthy? Do you want to change careers? Do you want to finish that degree?

No matter your dream, big or small. We’d like to encourage you to take that next step, beyond the dream and move into the planning part to make that goal a reality.

We believe you’ve got what it takes to accomplish that dream! Let’s start this new spring season filled with HOPE and gusto. Happy spring, friends!

Merry Christmas from the Phillips!

What a year 2020 has been.

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.

  1. 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!
  2. We were able to still participate in Awana at our church. The older four kids enjoy it and Trevor enjoys being a Sparks Leader.
  3. 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.
  4. Phillips Tile & Stone won Best of Omaha Tile Installer! Thank YOU to all who voted. We work hard to make our clients happy!
  5. We made a few more of our own home improvements.
  6. 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!
  7. Phillips Tile & Stone turned 10 years old and we celebrated with local giveaways on our FB and IG accounts!
  8. Trevor and Michelle celebrated 11 years of marriage.
  9. Trevor coached baseball while our older two played. The boys also were able to play soccer and continue piano lessons.
  10. 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!

Merry Christmas from The Phillips and Phillips Tile & Stone!

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?

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.
