This & That

I seem to notice a pattern of rambling on Tuesdays.  Not sure what it is, but I sort of like it.
So to continue with my tradition, here we go.

**Anyone remember this post where I mentioned my blog having a new look, and new logo?
Well, you may have noticed that the new look was up for about 6 hours before I pulled it back down in a panic.
I had rushed into having  my blog revamped and published it too soon.  I wanted it to look fresh and new for the giveaway I was hosting over at Blessed Little Nest, and in the end, I wasn't loving it.

I wanted new visitors coming to my blog to see me; fun loving, flighty me that loves fashion but doesn't take myself too seriously.
What I was afraid my new blog design said was "Hi, I'm Andrea and I take myself seriously...look at me try to be a model on Fridays."  So the new design had to be re-worked.

I have now put off making revisions and such for a couple of weeks because well, I just don't have the energy.
So for now my blog looks a little wonky, my header is outdated, my old sidebar menu links are gone, and well, that's that.  Live with it.  I am :)

**Did you notice I'm on Twitter?  Still not sure how I feel about it.  I can see its purpose if you have a mega blog and or business.  But with my paltry 35 followers, a lot of the time I feel like I'm just talking to myself haha!  Well that's not true, Mandy, Kimmie and Jules usually @ me :)  If you have a twitter account, let me know.  You can click on the sidebar link to follow my tweets if you want to.  I can follow you too because I think it's fun to actually follow people I "sort of know", as opposed to random strangers.

**Have I mentioned that I am hosting a child's yoga class in my backyard Monday mornings?  It's really sweet actually and is led by my friend Wendy, a certified Bikram and Child's Yoga Instructor.  Here are a few pictures of the kids doing double down dog.
Look at Skylar's form - you can tell her mom is a yoga instructor 

**Finally, my sister and nephew/Godson need your help!  My nephew's school submitted a grant application to help Rose Drive Go Green through Pepsi's Refresh Grant Program, and it was accepted.  If the school wins, they would receive $250,000 in grant money to help the school go "green" to help save some green!  The contest is 100% voter driven however, so they need your help!  You can vote everyday through July 31st!  Please visit the site http://www.refresheverything.com/rosedrive and enter your vote today!  All you need is an email account and you're good to go!  Please if you have the time, go in and vote!  It just takes about 30 seconds.

Okay peeps, time to head off to bed.  How did it get to be eleven already?


  1. kids yoga. what a splendid idea!

    i have a twitter! @kimberwidmer

    enjoying (and following) your blog.
    i love your header. but then again, i'm new here.

    your giveaway looked so fun. sorry i missed it.

    where do you get your fabric?

  2. Good Morning,
    I think your blog looks great! Dont fret. :)

    Oh, and I voted for the school too.


  3. I've been gone and lost track of things here in cyberspace.
    Just my two cents--twitter is not for me. I spend enough time on the computer. That's all I need is another obsession!

  4. How cute! Looks like the kids really enjoy yoga. I love it!

  5. Twitter is fine. You don't have 500 followers talking @ you all day long. You and I are doing it right. Follow less than 100 people. @ the people you like. Sign off when you're over it. :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read and appreciate every single one. If you enable your email address I'd love to respond :)
