Make-Over/Under

I fell asleep last night at my normal time (too late) and when I woke this morning, the elves had done their work on this here blog. Hallelujah! Cat is a saint, and she also happens to be incredibly intuitive and savvy. Thanks, Friend!

I wanted to write a quick post welcoming all of you to my new home and thought I'd use a picture of moi so you could tell right away that it's still your long-limbed FPFG at the keys. Incidentally, this is the most recent photo of myself and it was taken on Saturday as Cory and I headed out on the ill-fated double date. That's a bag of homemade caramel popcorn in my hand. (Naturally!)

There are still a few small things we'll be tweaking, but the big work is finished and I'm reveling in the fresh and clean of my new digs. It almost makes me want to clean my real digs!

Today's agenda includes:
Pajama day at Siley's pre-school (you can't imagine the cuteness)
A top-secret project for me while he's gone
Brown sugar pork chops for dinner
Gymnastics for Ruby after dinner
And maybe cleaning the toy room. Though I'm reluctant to ruin the fun with that one.

What are you up to today?

  24. I love it - so clean & pretty! Although I can be a bit of a hanger-on to things...wishing I'd had time to say goodbye to what was ;) Enjoy the chops & don't let the toy room slow your flow!

    ReplyDelete
  25. LOVE the simplicity of the new site!!!! The only draw back is that the default size for the font and the color is difficult for me to read. I know I have "old" eye, so that may very well be the prob! :-)

    LOVE the shirt and am wondering where you got it! I NEED....no, I WANT one!

  29. T-Shirt Info:

    For those of you who have asked, I ADORE my Live With Less t-shirt! It is super soft and long enough, not to mention its message. :)

    I originally tried an X-Small but it was a bit too snug... The Small is a tad boxier than I would prefer, but the better fit of the two.

    Here's the link: http://www.livewithlesstoday.org/product/live-with-less-anchor-tee

  30. Love the T-shirt and the new look for your blog. Very springy and fresh, uncluttered! That is a fantastic photo of you - your new life suits you :) Today I am a little under the weather with sinus-induced dizziness. Therefore happy to be distracted by new blog looks and fun T-shirts!

  41. Looks good!
    Sounds like a sweet day, too.
    Pajama day is so fun. Jolie loves it, but is always nervous she will be the only one in pj's. She won't hardly get out of the car until she sees someone else in their's.

    Have a good night.
