My Little Blog Makeover

…An idea. Resilient, highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it’s almost impossible to eradicate.

100 bonus points to the first person who can guess that movie (without cheating).  I just watched it for the second time the other day and finally understood it.

When Ryan gets the idea to change my blog, or to do anything for that matter, you can usually expect it to happen quickly.  I say usually because sometimes it can go the opposite way, but not when it comes to my blog.  One day he’ll tell me he wants to change it, and the next day I’ll find him working on it, and soon after it is complete!  I’m certainly not complaining because it keeps getting better and better.  I am blessed to have such a talented and sweet boyfriend!!!

If you check out my new blog look (hint- click over if you’re in a reader), you will notice that the theme is the same (for now at least).  However, the layout is a little different.  We decided that this new layout, called Canvas from WooThemes, should work better for the type of audience and blog I have… so we’ll see how it goes!  As always, let me know what you think of my little blog makeover and if you have any suggestions!

Also, check out my blog button on my sidebar and feel free to post it on your blog.  It finally works if you’ve ever tried to spread the blog love and noticed it didn’t work before.


Ryan has been here for the past week (and just left today, aw man) and my Aunt and Cousin have been here for over a week now so it’s been crazy and fun around here.  I’ve been trying to keep up with homework at the least, so my blog has been a little neglected.  As I type this post, I can feel that I am a little out of practice just from a few weeks of not regularly blogging.  I hope to get back to a posting more…and not only that, but improving my content and writing as I go along!

Thanks for reading my little blog!

    The new layout is great, Mindy! Nice work Ryan. My only suggestion… add a little bit of color maybe? I really like the sidebars though, very nice.

      Thanks Kristy, I think when the winter theme melts off the blog we’ll see more color! Thanks for some good feedback. :)

      Thanks Kristy! Yeah, I agree with you about the color.. or just something else along with the snow on the header. I’m not sure what though!
