Bloggy Makeover

Happy belated Thanksgiving!  Hope you all had a great one.

I got to cross TWO items off my 36 by 36 list:

2.  Cook Thanksgiving turkey:  DONE!

28.  Bake a pumpkin pie:  DONE!

The turkey turned out delish.  I didn't do anything fancy...just stuffed it with my family's secret stuffing recipe and baked it for forever.  I had a total of 13 people over, so I feel very pleased that everyone was fed and happy.  And nothing was burned.  Hooray!

In other news, I totally redid my blog look.  What do you all think?  (I'm quite pleased with myself.)  I even made a new button.  If you have my old one, please grab the new one when you get a minute (if you're into that sort of thing).

Here, I'll even put it right here for ease of access:


Tonight Scotty is grabbing some take-out for us and we are going to watch a movie.  I'm excited to just CHILL.  The last few days have been hectic, hectic, hectic.  I kinda feel like I need a vacation from my Thanksgiving vacation, if you know what I mean.

Hope you all have a lovely rest of the weekend!  :-)

I think everyone needs a vacation after their holidays. And after vacations. Rest.

I love the new blog graphics. I know it's no accident that the "baby" owls are missing ;-). I'll be interested to see which new directions you might go. Congrats on your decisiveness. I contemplate change forever and have a hard time committing to new direction. You just went for it! Impressive. Enjoy what's left of the weekend.

I have to say I'm very impressed. I don't have the foggiest idea how to add graphics to my blog. I haven't even figured out how to add an "about me" page.

The blog looks great and I didn't even notice the little owls missing til Salt's comment :)

Love the clean, minimalist look!

The new look is great! (Although I must admit I'll miss your insomniac owl!) :)

Good job on dinner! I didn't get stuffing this year, but I was super happy with mashed potatoes :)

Love it! I need a makeover, but I promise not to steal your owl idea (even though I'm totally obsessed with owls lately for no good reason).
