A Little Bit of Nothing

First off, whatcha think about my new bloggy makeover? My bestie bloggy designer, Jackie, over at Memories by Design and Our Moments, Our Memories, is a rock star. I tend to have Adult Onset ADD issues, and I get bored fairly easily (don't tell my children.....because "bored" is a bad word at our house), and though my old blog design was beautiful, I was ready for a change. Plus, I just adore Jackie to pieces, and wanted her to put her crafty goodness all over my blog. And I think she totally nailed it.

Great Job, Jackie!! You rocked it.

Oh...and, yes. That's me. In the header picture. With red hair. One of my besties, Jen, is begging me to go back to the land of red, but I'm so leery of doing it again. I loved the way it looked, but didn't love the way it cost. Because I don't do red out of the WalMart aisle. Brown...maybe. Blonde...possibly. Red...um...no. Because it just looks like I'm wearing an Oompaloompa on my head. And I don't do Oompaloompa. So, then I'm left with salon prices...and my family would rather eat than see me with red hair. Just sayin'.

In other news, I watched the Hannah Montana movie the other night. Tiffers had been bugging the snot out of me to watch it implying gently that I needed to see it, so to oblige my sistuh from anothuh mothuh, I RedBoxed it.

Oh...that glorious RedBox. Who ever invented that piece of movie vending marvel is a rockin' genius.

See....ADD....what did I tell ya?

Back to Hannah Montana. Oh.My.Goodness. Tiff was right. It was amazing. I laughed. I cried. And I danced like a 12 year old girl all around my living room. Because I roll like that. It is also possible that I know all of the dance routines to all 3 of High School Musical movies, too, but I digress.

So...Hannah Montana the Movie. Yes. See it. So.Good.

After pretending that I was a preteen adolescent, I put back on my grown-up shoes and went to the Homeschool meeting of the local co-op in our area. I knew a lot of these ladies just from the community, but I was surprised to see so many "normal" people there that are also homeschooling their children. I say "normal" in the nicest way possible, because I just need some folks that I can relate to. We will not be the family that builds teepees in our backyard, or that has pet snakes just to see 'em shed, or that will make our own candles out of the wax from our bees that we keep in hives in the back pasture. That's just not us. So "normal" people work for me. And "normal" are plenty. Thank You, Jesus.

Last night we headed over to Steph and Eric's house to hang out with our favorite "normal" besties. Jen and Danny were there, and Lisa and Wes. And we had a great time just being together. I'm not sure it is possible to laugh any harder or louder than when I'm with these guys, and I'm just so thankful that the Lord has blessed our family with such amazing friends.

Alright...more ADD...I'm bored with this post already.

Oh...and if you get a chance. Watch Hannah Montana.

So that you can "polka dot it" with me.

I love that.

Happy Sunday.

LOVE the new look!

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Yay, so glad you like it. :) You're a blast to work with!

Gotta see that movie, but I have to make sure it's when my hubby's away on a business trip or I'll never hear the end of it.

you actually read my blog, and left me a comment. God love you and bless you for making my lonely blog's day! if you were local i'd give you some kind of sugary goodness for the love.

i saw the lizzie mcguire movie years ago in the theater and clapped like a teeny bopper at the end. the whole theater consisted of about 5 twenty somethings. i think we all clapped. glad you enjoyed your movie.

Tiffani said...

That's my BeBe up there that commented on this post and YOU went to hers too?! Trust me, the girl's YEAR is made!! I love her!

KNEW just KNEW (of course) that you'd love the movie...I love Grandma Ruby and she made me cry and I love it when she sings with her Daddy..made me cry, AGAIN!! Let's just hope Miley doesn't go all Britney on us...

LOVE the look..I love yellow anyway, to kudos to Jackie!!

What do you mean you don't make your own candles??!!!! ;)

Mich said...

Your right, it wasn't horrible...it was jus tthe first day of school!!! Plus the outfits she wore Thursady and Friday were the cutest. Kev's fav ended up being the Gap outfit. You would be proud...she wore the scarf and everything.

Still working on getting use to the contacts. Somedays she has trouble getting them in and wears the glasses.

Hannah Montana was cute. The song will be stuck in my head FOREVER!

Love ya!

Mich said...

I so need to start spell checking before posting comments...

Alison said...

So - did your boys watch the movie with you?

Redbox rocks, and so does your new blog makeover!

Cathy said...

I'll even "pop it and lock it" before I "polka dot it" with you.:)

...hopefully soon...

And the almighty RedBox and DVDPlay (another $1 movie thing in Safeway) often call my name, cause REALLY who wants to pay $3.99 or MORE at Blockbuster or Hollywood? My kids would like to eat as well.

Kendra said...

Love the girlie look. You deserve it, after being surrounded by fish-shooting, baseball-playing rascaly boys (including their smiley daddy) all day.

I'll never watch Hannah Montana movie. Never. Can't stand Miley Cyrus, the Hannah industry, and Billy Ray, who totally sold out. But, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I am a HSM fan, though, so that should balance it all out.

Kellie said...

LOVE the red hair. Then again i think you could wear a paper bag for hair and still be beautiful! You are so photogenic....

Anyway, I watched Hannah Montana this weekend as well. The Girl and I had seen it in the theater so we went ahead and bought it. I am determined to learn the moves to the Ho-down-Throw-down...

boom-clap-boom-de-clap-de-clap.

mimi said...

LOVE the new look!! I totally have blog ADD too.....I'm already for another change ;)

Lookin' good....red, brown, blonde whatever. You could wear any color well!

Gretchen said...

I suppose I'll have to go over to Jackie's and watch HM with her, since I"m clearly the only woman alive who hasn't seen this movie yet. ANd I have an 11 year old. What's up with that?

Nina Diane said...

love your blog make over....

New Every Morning said...

Jessica said...

Love the new blog makeover! and it was great to finally meet you too!

Musings of a Homeschooling Mom said...

Put the hawk in the sky... move it side to side... LOVE that movie! I need to go buy it just for me! I think I'll be nice and share it with my 8 year old. :) I took her to see it in the theater with my 1 year old and it was not the most fun. I refused to take my 1 year old out of the theater and just paced the side with her so she'd be quiet and I was out of the way and could watch the movie! What a run on sentence!

I'm glad you found a local homeschool group that has a co-op! Are you going to do the co-op? We started homeschooling last year and that co-op was a lifesaver to me. I was so afraid to jump in because I knew no one. A major scary thing for this wallflower! It was absolutely the best thing I could have done, though. We all made great friends and they reassured me in person that I was doing the right thing when I was worried that I wasn't doing enough with my kids. Plus, I got some adult interaction! Win, win, win in my book!

I love the new makeover! It looks great.

Your hair looks fabulous red, too! You could wear it any color, though. You're a beauty!

Jennifer said...

I really think I want you to color your hair red so I can live vicariously through you!! I could never pull the red head off!! But you my dear, are adorable!!

I LOVE your bloggy makeover, as I've already told you a million times, and if I ever get back to blogging, I will get Jackie to do mine!! She did an awesome job!!

Have a great week of homeschooling!!

Love ya!!!
