Well, Happy Memorial Weekend everyone... I hope it was a fabulous one for all!

I spent the weekend bouncing between 500 different things. I cleaned, organized, wasted time on the internet, helped my dad plant flowers in pots around the house, read Eclipse for the second time, organized my closet (omg, I am a clotheshorse), etc.

Needless to say, I am just scattered.

The first thing I have to ask of all the internets is this:
I need a blog facelift. The black is weighing me down.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to who might be able to give me a makeover? Who did your blog design? I am NOT going to spend a fortune because I just got my credit card bill (o holy crap) and that just can't happen again... but I would like something that looks nice.

Second, did anyone watch Jon & Kate Plus 8 last night? I am just feeling weighted down by the heaviness of it all. I have loved that show since their very first special on TLC and I am just saddened by their marital troubles. I am also feeling very sick about the way the paparazzi have played a role in destroying their families.

I'll be the first to say that I'm as guilty as anyone else - I read the tabloid websites and read the gossip sites, but Kate was right when she said nobody ever really stops and thinks about how the people in those magazines are PEOPLE. It's just sad and it sickens me - the way our society takes joy in destroying a family. I love their show and think they have a beautiful, adorable family... but last night's episode just made me sad sad sad.

I guess that's all I've really got today.. please please give me suggestions on who I should contact for a blog redesign... I need a facelift!!

Happy Monday Tuesday!

You nailed it. I was so depressed after watching Jon and Kate last night. It's like I don't even really feel like watching anymore. I was thinking they were going to say none of it is true and all hype, but that was so not the case. Divorce seemed imminent. yikes.

Makeove? Try Moxie Design Studio or Gisele Jaquenod. Not expensive at all but looking so professionally great!

Check out Krysytn. She did my blog. Fabulous. Quick. And inexpensive.

Love Eclipse. Just finished reading it again myself. I'm know reading Breaking Dawn for the second time :). I'm in love with Edward.

hi there! i used Hilary at Simply Yours Designs (see the bottom of my blog for a link to her page). She was so easy to work with, and even has some pre-made templates that are pretty inexpensive. Good luck and I can't wait to see your new look!

I didn't watch because I'm abroad, but I've been reading all the gossip. Honestly, I don't feel that bad. Come on, Kate is such a bitch...I'd probably be unhappy in the relationship too. A relationship is about compromise, and Jon hasn't been happy filming for awhile and Kate won't give it up because she likes the perks. I find the whole thing sort of disgusting. She does have a beautiful family, and she definitely isn't making good decisions for them right now..it's sad.
