Extreme Makeover: Blog Edition

When I hear the word 'makeover', whether it is a home makeover, a body makeover, or even a blog makeover, I am instantly captivated and almost entranced. I can just about get goosebumps!

What woman doesn't enjoy watching something remodeled, renovated or restored?

There are quite a few things in my home that could use some kitchen (can't stand the white tile and dirty grout), my bathroom shower (the white tile and dirty grout again..and don't try to tell me to clean it, it is way past that my friend!) , my front yard (cats have decided to use my drip lines as chew toys)...the list is long.

Don't even get me started on the body makeover right now. A plastic surgeon could make a boat load of cash off of the nip and tuck job he could do on this body that has been pregnant a total of three years, (longer than a single birth of an African pachyderm) and has carried and given birth to a grand total of thirty six pounds - six ounces of baby!

Unfortunately, with those big jobs comes big money and that isn't an option right now.

There is one possibility for a remodel that won't break my piggy bank....


I have been so grateful to find Elisa with 'Designs by Elisa' . I fell in love with her own personal blog design and was eager to have her just give me the exact same design as hers! I did talk her into a Gerber daisy of my very own, though she was sweet enough to encourage me in a different direction.

So with all of that said...very soon you will come to my tiny little space in the world of the Internet and find that my 'Blessed...' blog has a new face, a new body style and a fresh look.

I pray that you will be 'Blessed...'

Going for the gold are you?

Can't wait to see it.

I'm so excited for you - can't wait to see it!

I, too, used to have the white Blogger background. Tried to convince myself that it was sleek, stylish and wouldn't detract from my witty writing. Ha! I finally got rid of it!

Can't wait to see the new blog!

I have tried two other blog designers but they either kept putting me off or were too expensive. I am going over right now to check her out.

Cant wait to see your new look

go to to register for a partial scholarship to SHE SPEAKS!!! I'm not sure if you got the email from Samantha or not, but I wanted to make sure you got the info. I am trying to raise funds to go also. Maybe I will see you there :)

Oh how you are inspiring us. I may have to give you a call and get the inside scoop before I take the leap. I CANNOT wait to see and yes, we will be blessed. You alone do that for us.

Hugs friend.
