Notice anything?

Thanks to the lovely and wonderful team of Lizzie and Isaiah of Love Your Way and ctrl-p, my blog now KICKASSTASTIC!  A post about the process will soon follow, but let’s just say that there were Gorgonzola burgers, puppy kisses, amazing (and quick) design involved, along with much awe on my part.  There will be more changes as we go, so please email me and let me know if there is anything wonkadoodle going on.  (and if there is, it’s more than likely because I jacked with something Lizzie and Isaiah did.)

I’d like to thank all you lovely little moppets for your patience.  While I didn’t intend the hiatus to be this long, it’s been worth it.

ALSO!  If you haven’t sent out your pen pal letter, SEND ‘EM!  If you haven’t received anything, let me know.  And if you HAVE, then send me an email about it!  Give a synopsis of what you and your pal would be doing, and send photos if the letter or envelope was especially fun or pretty.  I got mine and it is AWESOME and I can’t wait to share.

SO!  What’s new?  Tell me things…

    UGH now I have ugly blog shame, THANKS A LOT.

    Sorry, that was the Monday talking.

    I really do love it. And you! And Lizzie and Isaiah! And blogging in general, and puppies!

    Sorry, that was the Vodka talking.

      Vodka at 8am makes me love you even more.

      And whatever, I saw your fancy blog AND new hair. Color me JEALOUS. (And not redheaded, which makes me sad.)

    Ooooo, MUCH liking here. Love the new design, and so glad you’re back!
    The only thing I have to report is that I made a kick-asstastic lemon meringue pie for a family party this weekend and cemented my reputation with the in-laws. This is exciting because it means I never have to endure another crummy supermarket excuse for pie again. CHEERS!

      You’ve mastered the lemon meringue?? I bow down to your superior baking abilities….

    Ohh pretty pretty! I like the new design a lot. Not that the old layout was bad or anything, just different, and it was nice, but this one is nice and new, which is nice in a different sort of way….I need more sleep.

      YES. More sleep needed here too. Let’s go take naps….

    I’m glad the hiatus was worth it. You definitely deserved a break!

    I sent and received my letters…and will tell you all about it later.

    PapaMonkey and I had a fabulous weekend with the kids, and now we both feel as if we’d been run over by trucks. I hope that’s just the Monday talking.

    Very nice! Well done, Lizzie & Isaiah!

    (I’m jealous of your Lili’s Bistro burgers. The only burgers near me now are Dairy Queen and Sonic, and it’s NOT THE SAME.)

    Love the new layout! I thought the old one was pretty, but this one is easier to navigate.

    I did finally send and receive my pen pal letters. I got a very pretty card from New England. I’ll send you a photo.

    I missed you! My news is that I am loving my last semester of my degree. And my favourite film clip this year is still Jon Hamm and the blue yeti for Herman Dune’s ‘Tell Me Something I Don’t Know’.
