My New Summer Look

You may have noticed that things look a little different around here. Remember how I was hunting for a designer to spruce up my blog? Well, I found one - the fabulous Jeri Lyn. She hooked me up with a new header, a coordinating background and the cutest button ever. If you want to freshen up your blog, I highly recommend her. She posted instructions on how to grab my button - so please do! It's too adorable to keep to myself.

Now that I've got my fun summer look, I've got some other surprises coming up. Remember the reading challenge I mentioned? Yep, I'll be announcing that soon. I also have giveaways, interviews and, of course, reviews. So, definitely stay tuned!

Summer's been in full swing around here for a few weeks. The kids are bored out of their minds, and I'm feeling tired and lazy - something about having all my children home all day just makes me want to nap all day! Anyway, I hope you all are having a great summer filled with lots of great books. Happy reading!


  1. This is sooooo cute! I'll add your button to my blog when we get back from camping. (I'm supposed to be packing, but so hard to leave the computer.)

    I hear we're all getting together in Utah this summer... sounds fun.

  2. Your new look is very cute! You should also be proud of me because I was able to do the button thing ;)

  3. I love the new look! It's so sweet and friendly.

  4. Glad you mentioned the new look, since I only read your blog in Reader. Looks good.

  5. It looks so clean and tidy - just the way I wished my house would look!! What a fun way to start your summer reading and blogging!

  6. Love the new look!! I'll add the button now.

  7. Love the new look! It's just turning into winter down here in Australia so anything with a summer focus is great right now!


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
