Check out the new look.....

OK.. so I just have to ask... Have any of you (my fellow blogger friends) attempted to change your blog totally to make it better ;-) and then thought about 2 hours into the mess... OMG, why did I start this????
LOL... that would be me... I decided I wanted something way more cute... I knew I wanted something cuter from the beginning of my blog, but didn't know how you other more experienced bloggers got all that adorable cute stuff on there... LOL! I finally asked... (Thanks Heather).... and found out that you guys haven't paid for it... that some backgrounds are free!!! yippee...
So, I was very excited and embarked on a little blogger journey of my own... OUCH! What a mess... I ended up in a HUGE mess... and then things all of a sudden were in the wrong places... man o man... What started out as a fun adventure ended up as a nightmare... and now I'm not so sure I even like the newer look.... I have to admit that it so hard for me not to pick one of those ADORABLE backgrounds that screams girls!!!! Those are so much cuter!!!! I struggled with which one to pick.... and I would love every ones HONEST opinion... do you like it??? It was hard getting the colors just right... and I still don't think I have them exactly like I want them.... maybe I'll quit for tonight and come back later....
please, tell me I'm not the only one who this has happened to... LOL!

We are so excited around here that it's Fall Break!!! YIPPEE!!!!

LOL! I love it! Seriously. I think it's great, and I love the colors. But if you're not happy with it, that's what really matters. I do like it a lot though.

And yes- you are not the only one. I can't go into more details now, but remember this question in a month. :-)

I feel so much better now that I am not the only one who was having a challenge with changing the the blog look!There are so many backgrounds to choose from and I really wanted to stick with a neutal boy/girl coloring.I had to call my more experienced blogger friend to help me with a couple things as well with placement and I kept deleting things!You did a great job! It looks really great and the colors go well.

It really is cute...I have been thinking about redoing our bedroom in this color scheme!!! It is adorable!

I laughed at your comments to me!! I was SOO mad because I have NEVER thought the day would come when I would have to allow technology to claim victory? Well, maybe it hasn't claimed the full war, but there have been a few battles I've lost!!!

Love it- very cute and creative! Great job! Oh I wouldn't pay for the cute backgrounds either- glad there are some freebies out there! I'm about to convert my blog to a book soon and then maybe I'll step up to your level of blog know how! Enjoy fall break- we are in Tennessee! You still need to do facebook!

I absolutely LOVE the new look! I am obsessed with polka dots and the brown looks perfect with it! I'm glad things worked out and I'll be asking you for tips soon b/c it all looks fantastic!

I think your new blog colors look great!!! I am all into blue & brown right now. Everything I buy seems to be brown. It is amazing the stages we go thru. One year everything I loved was a lilac color.

This adoption journey really is a test of faith & sometimes I am afraid that I am going to flunk but then God & his absolute wisdom gives me a sign & I know he has it all figured out for me. No worries!!!
