Look at the baby.

Wednesday, February 6, 2013



Let's pretend that I am in the hospital and you just came to visit me...

BECAUSE I JUST GAVE BIRTH TO A BLOG.

Here, take the baby.  Snuggle it. Kiss it. Take pics with it. Whatever.
Just pass me the pain killers.

I got this crazy idea in my head back at the beginning of January that I wanted a new layout for this blog.
Wouldn't that be fun?
A fresh start for 2013!
A new look for the new year!
Someone open the windows and let some fresh air into this place!
Someone call the Real Housewives because we are going to botox it up around here!
We are going to DO THIS!  

My goal was simple:  I wanted something lighter. Something new. Something modern. Something blue.
Or wait....maybe yellow.
Possibly grey.
I do love that coral-y orange too.

Ok, ok...here's what I do know: I know I DEFINITELY want a simple font.
With....um.....scripty-ness.  
Hmmm.
On second thought....

Forget fonts.  Let's put those circle-y things with pics inside!
What are they called?  Buttons?
Definitely yellow buttons....
Blue diamonds?
Or purple squares.
Now I'm hungry for a bowl of Lucky Charms.

Needless to say, I could not do this blog re-design alone.  A big thank you goes out to several people who have the patience of a saint to put up with me and all my indecisiveness.  "Do you like the yellow or the blue better? This one or this one? Better 1 or 2?"
I was more annoying than an eye doctor.

Speaking of doctors, I need to say a HUGE thank you to the main one....the big blog plastic surgeon.  He is a friend I have known for seven years via the blog world. He actually used to blog.  Now he is writing books. Show-off! And somehow he made the time to help me with all the techy, code-y stuff on the side, while simultaneously battling the stomach flu.

And I was all: DO NOT GET STOMACH VIRUS GERMS ON MY NEW BABY!!!

(Only in a very sweet voice.  After I thanked him profusely for making this blog so pretty.)

So here it is.....McMommy 2013.
Lighter. More organized. More modern.
Still using blogger (yellow walkman style) but embracing the social media frontier.
Although I still have no idea what Google Plus is.

p.s.  If you are viewing this on a mobile phone, you are actually seeing a different version. You can click "web version" at the bottom of the screen to see the real one.

p.p.s. I'm still not done...still have tweaks around here to make. So you may notice things adjusted and new profile pic, etc in the days ahead. 

p.p.p.s.  Is there a such thing as a p.p.p.s?
