A New Header and Other Business

We had a packed weekend.  Whew!  It was so nice to have time with family, though.  I hope you all had a great Easter.  Thank you for your helpful comments on Saturday's post.  You got the wheels turning for me.

I don't have a Mommy School project to share today, but I did squeeze in a little time to make a new header.  I wanted to switch it up a little for spring.  Plus, I got my boys to wear their bow ties to church yesterday and since they were all dressed up I figured it would be great to get a fun picture.

Here's a bigger picture of the one I used in the header.


Since Google Reader is going to die in July I just made the switch to Bloglovin.  I've heard people say they love it, so I'm trying it out.  I also added a button (just after the followers button) that allows you to subscribe easily to my blog through bloglovin.  Since anyone in the reader will have to make a switch I thought it might make it a little easier.  It also imports all your google reader blogs for you when you sign up, which made me super happy because I sure didn't want to have to try and type them all in.


I have some fun t-shirts the boys and I made to show you tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Cute! Feel free to delete this, but I was curious if you meant to switch to "here" instead of "hear" in your header.

    1. Oh, you're right! I think I put the finishing touches on the header when I was half asleep :) Whoops! I'll definitely have to fix that. Thanks for the heads up!

  7. That picture is soooo cute! You and your little men. And you little girlie to be! Eee!

    I switched over to feedly because it was the one that was recommended to me. I'm on it right now, I just discovered a 'preview' button on it that opens a little window like a pop up of the blog including the header and comment section, and on the top of it there's still the 'save for later' 'open in new tab' 'close' buttons. I think I'm in love with it, the iphone app is nice too. Kind of glad google reader is going down b/c the feedly is much faster to navigate than the google and google next while still managing to easily pull up the blog page.

    1. I tested both Bloglovin and Feedly - ended up choosing Feedly as the transition was minimal. I found with BlogLovin I have to go to the blog to even read part of the post versus Feedly I can read most in the ready except truncated content. Plus, Bloglovin wouldn't pick up content if my company's firewall blocked the site but feedly does.

  11. Super cute! I love the matching springy colors (and I remember you did a watermelon pic when you were expecting Baden, no?) I love how you're carrying on the tradition through photos. The boys are adorable as always and I love your dress! :)

    1. I got the dress at Target a few weeks ago. I'm pretty sure it's still there. Good luck!
