Pink pink pink!

The girl likes pink.  So in honor of her favorite color, it is Christmas in Pink!

I still need to adjust the EC widget, but otherwise I think this one is set.  Oops, need to correct the links in the nav bar, but otherwise I think everything is working OK on this.  I still need to look at the comments though and make sure that looks OK.

If you see anything broken just leave a comment here and let me know.

Overdue award thanks
Posted on November 20th, 2008 @ 12:49 pm

I have not been ignoring the awards that have been left for me.  I’ve just been busy at work, which is usually when I do my blogging, so… Anyway, I’m taking a few minutes to do some thanks for the following rewards:

From Judi @ Where the Road Takes Us, and Emily @ Mama & Hustler???, comes the Butterfly Award:

The way it works: save this image to add to your blog. Then you get to award 5 of your favorite blogs to share in the fun! Remember to link back to my blog and the ones you award. Then leave them a comment to let them know how to retrieve their award!


The next award is from Julie & Jacqueline (see this post for my original thanks and their links) for the “I Love Your Blog” award:


Next are two tags.  First, from Judi @ Where the Road Takes Us:

Ok, I will at least try to participate as much as providing the seven things about me…


  1. I love onion rings, but hate raw onions.
  2. I have a strange fear of pointy/sharp things being anywhere near my eyes.  Even indirectly pointed in my general direction, and I have to close my eyes and turn my head.  It makes knitting socks very tricky. LOL
  3. Ironically, I can put eye drops and, contacts, when I used to wear them – into my eyes with no problems.
  4. I hate spiders (may have mentioned this before), but I don’t mind snakes.  I find them fascinating.
  5. Peanut butter and pickle sandwiches are yummy.  No I did not pick up the taste for them while I was pregnant, I tried it long before that and liked it.
  6. I lose enough hair when I wash it (every other day) that I could probably have enough hair to make a wig for a small doll in less than a month’s time.  I am surprised I am not bald by now. But my hair IS thin.
  7. I sometimes only shower once over the weekend, usually on Sunday.  And yes I still go out in public on Saturday.


And the other tag is an 8 Things tag, from Cinnamon @ My Name is Not Mom :

  1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
  3. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog


So here is my list…


  • I forget things easily, so when I go shopping, I always have to have a list. And sometimes I still manage to forget something, even WITH the list.
  • I remember faces before I remember names.  So if someone from way back were to approach me, I would probably recognize their face, but I would most likely not remember their name. How embarassing is that?
  • I used to be pretty good with watercolors in high school.  I haven’t painted in years, though.
  • One of my paintings was selected by one of my state’s Senators to go hang in the halls under the Capitol building for a year.  That painting now hangs on the wall of our living room.
  • I got to go to Washington D.C. with my mom & my art teacher to see my painting, along with several other students from across the country.
  • Repetitive sounds annoy me – think pen clicking, barking dogs, habitual throat clearing.
  • That is why I am glad I can wear headphones at work.
  • The best part of my job is that I rarely, if ever, have to talk to any customers.
  • The worst part is the 1+ hour one-way commute.


Ok, so that was nine things.  You get a freebie!


I am going to be really lame due to how busy I am, and neglect to hand pick other blogs to pass these on to.  Yeah, I know it’s not really in the spririt of having received them, but Ijust don’t have a lot of spare time while I’m at work ya know.  😉  So if you come across this post, and haven’t received one of these awards already – award it to yourself! 🙂  I won’t mind – just leave a comment if you do so I know you picked it up from my blog. :wink2:

Award time

Wow, I got an award from two gals this weekend!  Neat!

Thank you to Julie at Moma’s Life and Jacqueline at Mom to Three Sisters for the award.

I’ll have to do the “pass the torch” part of the award later tonight or this week.  In the meantime I need to get some stuff done at work lest the bosses think I am a slacker! 😉

New template
Posted on September 16th, 2008 @ 11:16 am

I wanted to add a header – well, add text to the header – but the template I was using before didn’t have a header for starters, and second, I couldn’t find any good alphabets to match up with the colors.

So I switched to a different template and added text to the header.  I kind of like it, at least when someone visits it will be clear what the name of my blog is. LOL

Anyway, I got the images for the letters from Lettering Delights, using their free title maker.  It also lists any fonts or alphabets that you’ve already purchased, but the best one that fit with this template was a freebie alphabet.

Now to find one that matches up with my other blog.
