miscellany monday ~ 6/27/11

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

ok, first of all,
how is it nearly the end of June already?!
seriously?!

secondly, as much as I’ve always said I hate hanging laundry outside,
I’ve been doing it more lately.
I have lines in the basement, but it’s been SO DAMP lately that it takes awhile for the clothes to get dry.
Outside, in the heat, not so much!

third -
I had a seriously PROUD MAMA MOMENT today.
Gracie tried out for the Central Pennsylvania Homeschool Orchestra today -
and she made it!
Basically, I wanted her to try out for the experience of the audition -
I honestly wasn’t expecting her to get in on her first try.
Yep, I’m proud!

four – we visited my brother and sister-in-law yesterday.
Their estimated travel to Korea to pick up their son has been pushed back
to later in the fall (Oct./Nov.)
I feel for them – I’m so excited to meet my new nephew, Grant.
And his bedroom is just gorgeous!

fifth on the miscellany list today -
did you see my post this morning about the Where’s Edna scavenger hunt?
You should SO play along (especially if you homeschool or need a good planner!)

number six -
calling all Disney bloggers!  I’m updating my Recommended Disney Resources page
to include links to my Disney friends’  blogs.
E-mail me with your button and a link to your blog and I’ll include you.

and last . . .
what do you think of my blog?  look better?
Getting my own domain last week kinda created a spiral effect -
with the new name, I decided I wanted a few changes.
Then,  couldn’t figure out how to do them (or I didn’t have the patience).
Thankfully, I have some sweet friends that stood by me and helped me accomplish it.
Betty @ Peace Creek on the Prairie made my cute social media buttons
and helped me move everything around where I wanted it.
Shannon @ Moutaineer Country gave me a great idea for resizing things that I NEVER would have thought of – she saved me a TON of time and stress.
I’m pleased with how it all turned out.

Love the changes you've made and I'm guessing those pictures in your header of from this year's Disney trip. Too cute! Isn't it great to have friends who actually know what they are doing when it comes to blog design?

And I just had to add...last summer we actually bought a dryer because our clothes weren't drying on the line here in the hot, humid South. :( Either this year is not nearly as humid as it has been in the past or I'm getting used to the heat. We're heading north next month and I'm sure that I'll be freezing in the 80 degree temps. I kid you not, I have my jean jacket packed. lol

Congrats to Gracie! That is such a great accomplishment! And love the header, stars, and font change (at least it looks diff to me) on your blog
