it's a thursday so that means i have a collection of randomness to share

i feel the need for a major blog overhaul.
i mean, i have learned so very much about it in the last 7 months but now i only know enough to recognize that i am NOT where i want to be....
i need a new look and some fresh ideas-
i want to be a tad more organized and on the ball about posting-
i am mulling around the concept of adding ads-
hmmmm. what to do- what to do??
any of you awesome veteran blogger extraordinaires have thoughts on the matter?

in other news. it was disgusting outside today- the humidity was about 600% and i am not joking. i met some of my besties from college in the park and we would have spontaneously combusted in the heat had the air been a little less moist wet. (side note: i know i am not the only one who hates the word moist)
but balminess aside- what a great day- how i miss those ladies. it is much harder to recount our awesome college stories in the presence of the sponges we call children, but my heart feels a little lighter after my day with them. it seems IMPOSSIBLE that we graduated almost ten years ago. eeeeeek!

and that brings me to other other news-- today N asked me why i had roads on my forehead..... yep- ROADS. apparently i carry that worried raised eyebrow appearance around a little too often. if i didn't regularly teach college students about the horror of bacterial toxins, i might be tempted to botox those roads into oblivion......
no probably not even then-- i'd just be worried about paying for it and they would come right back. but seriously- botox is botulism toxin that parlayzes your facial muscles- what what??!?!

i guess i am gonna need to invest in more college throwback days like today to keep me young!

oh, MOIST is one of the worst words in English vocabulary. Sure, there are a few things that moist could positively describe. Like brownies. But by and large, moist = bacteria haven = gross hygiene. Just plain EWWWW!

First of all, I LOVE that you posted that pic of your N and my L! Soo cute:) Sorry I can't help with the blogging- I'd like to do it, but I can not imagine ever being able to find enough time. Seriously, I don't know how you do such an amazing job of it. You should not be hard on yourself because you already ARE on the ball and organized about posting, as far as I'm concerned!
I am soo happy that we got together at the park to have the kids mingle, play and see the animals. Hope to do it lots more once we're living closer. Good times :) Ever since, I've been reminiscing about some of our college days (usually while I'm nursing A and have a little time to think and daydream). It is always great to see you and anyone in our gang, children in tow or not, but someday we have to have a girls night on the town just to relax and relive those crazy days ;) Although I'm sure we won't get as crazy. <3 ya

Thank you for joining us on I ♥ Blogging Hop, I am your newest follower.

About your blog overhaul question. Have you considered switching over to Wordpress. Us "veterans" have learned that if you want to be considered a "Pro" Wordpress is the way to go. It's best to make the switch when your blog is young or the potential for loosing posts and comments during the move is greater. offers a great package with one year of free hosting. That might be the solution you are looking for. Best of luck and have a great week!
