New Look-Cheerful

Hello Hello Hello! Sorry for the lack of posting yesterday. I planned to do it when Bree went to bed, but due to a late nap she had, she ended up being up until 11, and by then I was to darn tired to type.

As you can see, my blog has gotten a new look. I farted around with a few different things, and finally decided on this look...for now. Its nice and cheerful, and kinda says bring on spring, don'tcha think? I did have to change the layout to fit things properly, and when doing that, I noticed my pics that have already been put up, got chopped off some. Dang it. I can't win. So, from now on my pics either need to be smaller, or they'll be cut off a bit...bah. Not sure how long I'll keep this look...time will tell. Sometime I'd like to convert to a 3 column blog, but I don't know how...I've read things on how to do it, but I'm instruction dyslexic I think, its all like a foreign language to me! I need someone to DO IT FOR ME. :) Speaking of people doing things for me...Thanks to my friends Chrissy for making my blog button, and Kami for helping me put my picture strip onto my banner! Oh, and if you'd like to snag my button, please do, except, I disabled right click in order to protect my pictures and stuff, so that part doesn't work. You'll have to highlight the code, hit control & C to copy it, and to paste it to your blog you'll have to do control & V. Sorry its a pain, just trying to protect my pics from nutcases that steal pics of other peoples kids.

In other news...Kels had a decent birthday. We didn't do anything big, for several reasons, such as...
1. Can't afford it.
2. She was at her dads most of the weekend.
3. Our house doesn't hold big parties well. To small of a house, and to much stuff IN IT.
4. Her recent behaviour does not warrent a party.
5. A house full of teens scares the heebie jeebies out of me!
6. Did I mention we can't afford it? No money sucks big...
That being said, for her birthday it was just us here at home. I gave her the gag gifts that I blogged about a few days ago. She was NOT AMUSED. LOL. She didn't find it funny...party pooper. Her main present will be delivered sometime in the near future. We enjoyed some jello cake, which is what she wanted. Instead of just boring white cool whip on top, I decided to take a few minutes to decorate it a bit. Cool Whip is a pain in the rear for rose making by the way. It turned out ok though. After all that Kelsey went to spend time with her friend Autumn.


This weekend coming up, Kelsey will be having a few friends over to celebrate her birthday. They'll watch movies, snack, have a fancier cake, and just have some good old fun time hanging out. I hope the cake she wants turns out, it will be covered in fondant...I'm not good at fondant!

Yesterday, Kels was sick, she was getting ready for school, we were about ready to leave...and she ralphed. Bah. Today she went to school....but a bit ago, I got a call to come get her. Thankfully my mother in law picked her up for me, since I was blocked in. The city is cutting down the tree next to my driveway in the neighbors yard, and there is tree mess all over.

Anyone watch Dancing with the Stars? What do you think of the Stars picked for this season? I'm not a huge fan of any of them...but I'll still watch. I just don't know who to cheer on! I guess I'll just have to watch and see, make my mind up after that.

I think thats all for now...Toodles!

i said something about your new look on twitter the other day. Don't know if you saw it or not. I LOVE it, though! Very cute! Very Spring-y! I love your new header too.

How do you disable right clicking?

Christine Ann said...

The new background looks great, its very spring-y :)

Disabling right clicking sounds good, I'll have to figure out how to do that!

I love the new look to your blog. It is very happy and makes me smile.

Happy Birthday, Kelsey! You did a great job on the cake, Renee. I love the purple tips on the roses.

I'm happy the tree is down but I'm sorry they scared you when the big branch nearly crushed your house.
