Recovering from a facelift and time with the children

Do you like my new face lift? Do you?

I love it.

Credit goes to Jo Lynne at DCR Designs. She's just begun her new bloggy design business and you should really go check out some of her work. On top of her very funny, well-written everyday blog, she has a beauty product review blog, Chic Critique, and now this. As you can see, girlfriend knows how to work the html so it has nice, pretty shapes to it. I am so excited about my new look. I just love it. And I just love her.

In other news, we just got home from a little spring break vacay with the kids. Pictures and details coming [hopefully] soon.

Providing I do not get lost in the gorging of the Easter candy tomorrow.

Which is entirely possible since the Easter Bunny always brings Cryptonite Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs.

I'm just saying.

Neat new look! Our spring break isn't for another week, & we are counting down. My poison at Easter is the Cadbury Creme Eggs...pure evil I tell you! I can't wait to see the vacation post & pics.

Lisa-Marie said...

oooh. It is pretty. It kinda reminds me of chocolate. Or maybe that is cause I am filling easter baskets at the moment. Or maybe cause I always think of chocolate. Or maybe cause I have a chocolate problem.

Anywho. It's cute. Glad you had a great time. Awaiting pictures!

I LOVE the facelift! Reese's (and anything with the chocolate/PB combo for that matter) is also my cryptonite. Oh well. Can't wait to see the spring break pics!

This face lift looks WAYYYYYYYY better than the one that was just posted on Paige's page! :) It looks great. I saw it a few days ago, and I love it. Happy Easter!

Lauren said...

I LOVE it! It looks fantastic!

Does she have a template that can make me look thinner?

But, enough about me...

I love the cryptonite crossed out. You are so funny!

Ages ago you sent me a detailed response to my e-mail question about how to do the strike out...I recently did it and I love it! So humorous! Thanks again for the response and explanation.

Love it. I love pink and brown together. Tres chic! Happy Easter!

crystal said...

Will she actually DO the work FOR you? Because I'm too lazy and un-smart to figure out html.

Good luck with the Reeses eggs. I'll think of you as I pop a few.

The Bunny brought stickers this year in lieu of candy. I'm the one that ends up eating the devilish stuff anyway...so why give it to them? :0) Thankfully, the stickers went over well. :0)

I love your new look...you can never go wrong with pink and brown!

Bridget said...

Love it. Trendy and cute. Like you.

I must turn my head at the site of Easter candy. I gained five pounds the past couple weeks being sick and not exercising. GRRRRRR....

katie said...

I LOVE the new design! I'm heading over to her sight now...

thanks!!

Annie said...

Oooo...nice. I likey.

Welcome back...we just pulled into town and what am I doing? Laundry & unpacking? no. Figuring out what to make for dinner later? oh, no. Catching up on my computer, of course.

Priorities, friend! :)

Holly said...

This was the perfect facelift-- without scalpels, long recovery, and inability to frown.

I like the pink and brown combo. It IS a rather nice brown, makes me think of chocolate mixed with peanut butter.

dcrmom said...

I have eaten myself SICK on Resees peanut butter eggs this weekend. SICK.

LOL about the CHOCOLATE brown. :-)

I love your cool-chic-hip looking blog. I'm a real beginner and am looking for tips to spice mine up. I may be knocking on your door with questions. Anna

Lori said...

I want a face-lift. I love yours!

andrea said...

i can't believe you know anna! i can't believe you are old enough to be lainey's YW leader!
i guess if i read your marriage post more closely, i could see that you are about 34, same as me. and i'm old enough to be a YW leader (a few more times than i've cared to be, actually).
hmm.
excellent. i love linkage. now i feel like we're linked through more than just cyberclicks.

melissa said...

I LOVE your face lift! I've been wanting to do one to mine... sometimes I get tired of the same old thing. I'll have to check out that website. Darling!!

Sparky said...

I am going to start a blog dedicated to changes of Christie's blog. I'll call it "A few of My Favorite Things" Things.

P.S. My halloween blog got a new post and a facelift... http://halloweeen-how-to.blogspot.com

Love the facelift. I thought you were anti-doodads so I'm glad to know you were just holding out for the right look.

Hollyween said...

Love your new layout. It seems to suit you. It's just happy. Plus I like brown and pink.
