Updates to the Blog

Good Morning!

I woke up the morning around 3:30 and couldn't fall back to sleep, so around 4:00 I finally rolled out of bed, made a cup of coffee, got the dishwasher running, and sat down to play around with my blog.

On Monday, I purchased and semi-installed a beautiful new blog template I found on Etsy from Bella Lulu Ink.  I only needed the designer to create my header and profile picture to be somewhat ready to roll with my new design.  I received those files yesterday and couldn't wait to get them uploaded!  I think it turned out really beautiful--I cannot say enough good things about this designer!  The file was easy to install on my blog and she was so quick to design my header and profile picture--go check her out!

I updated my "Bookshelf" page with most of my recently read books since 2012 {plus a few others snuck on there to "complete" the series that I was still in the process of reading}.  Please go check that out and let me know of any wonderful books that y'all have read lately!  I am always looking for a new book/series to check-out!

So now, all I need to work on is getting a quick blurb about me written to go under my profile picture and write my entire "About Me" page {why does that seem so daunting?!}.  I really want to try to get working on those this weekend, but we will see!

Alright, now on to jump in the shower and get ready for the day!  Have a great Saturday!

Weekend Recap

On Friday, Tom and I got back home from a week at the beach with my family.  It was just what we needed--some rest and relaxation!  We did miss Elli terribly, so we were so excited to pick her up from my in-laws when we got back to town.  Tom and I picked up some pizzas and had dinner with his parents and then it was back home to get unpacked from our trip.

We slept in a little bit on Saturday morning {you know, all the way until 8:00 AM} and we got up and got ready to run some errands.  We had run into Sam's Club Friday night to pickup some groceries for the week and saw that a laptop that I had had my eye on for a while was on serious sale.  Tom told me to sleep on it and see if it was what I really wanted, so I decided Saturday morning that I definitely wanted to pick it up!  After running some other errands and picking up Chipotle for lunch, we quickly bought the laptop and headed home.  We spent the rest of the evening watching Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol that we rented from Amazon Instant View and then Tom watched the Met's game.

Sunday morning, we headed to the movie theater to see Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.  It was really good!  We recently watched the other four Mission Impossible movies to get ready for the new one and I think that this one might be the best of the bunch!

I took a nap Sunday afternoon after having a terrible migraine and we just hung out and watched the Met's game.

I spent today trying to get things in order around the house, preparing some meals for lunches this week, and attempting to get my blog in working order!

I promise in my next post, to have some pictures!  I am trying to get back into the swing of blogging and remembering to take lots of pictures along the way!!

Have a great week!
