New Blog Design – Again!

Last night was the perfect bedtime. The girls were exhausted from our busy day.

I patted Aiyana’s back, then Chloe’s, walked out of their room and I was not called back – not once.

They were out.

I decided to write a few blog posts, but when I signed onto my blog, I changed my mind, it was ready for a change. Five months ago, I redesigned my blog wanting to add a bit of color, but keep the simplicity.

I get bored easily.

I was tired of the blue and really wanted to go back to white – a fresh clean design.

For some reason, I feel like after my last design, I really got wrapped up in a lot of reviews and giveaways and besides that, my blogging has been very hit and miss. My lack of blogging has more to do with my lack of time available, not so much with the design, but I want to get back to more personal blogging. What better than a more personal design?

Out with the old…

lollipop header

and in with the new.

I am not completely done, there are still some changes I want to make to my sidebar, but like I said, yesterday was a busy day and this mama was exhausted too! I will probably finish up sometime this week, but for now back to blogging.

Do you host a weekly meme? I really want to get back into a few memes a week, but first on my list is Kim’s at Mom Tried It. This is the week I will be jumping in on her Foto Friday with the theme “old”. Time to start brainstorming and snapping some photos!

I would love feedback on the design! What do you like, what would you change? Advice, comments…the good and bad…I am open to hear it all.

    Love it. I read a lot of blogs every day and it’s so nice to see simplicity everyone once in a while. I really do prefer a plain looking blog. I love your pictures in the header though. Perfect little touch to personalize your blog. Thanks for all you do! =)

    I love every design you do. I wish I could figure all that out, because like you I get bored easily and tired of paying people lol. Love the look, clean, fresh with a bit of added color looks amazing. Hope you are doing well!

    Love the new look,Michelle. It’s fresh and clean and the photos on the header are just perfect! Would love to see your Twitter feed on the sidebar — if that doesn’t clutter up the space. Otherwise, it’s all looking great. :)

    I ADORE the new look! You know that I love when you have the family photos on your header… especially now that you have the fur-baby there, too. It is just perfect!
    You do such amazing work… next time I need a makeover, I’m calling you. =)

    Your blog looks wonderful. I like to change mine up about 4 times a year.
