Happy Hump day!!  Wow that definitely got here sooner than I thought, who loves starting the week on Tuesday right?  Let’s begin with some housekeeping things.

First, I hope you have noticed my beautiful new blog design!  Natalie is an amazing designer and so easy going to deal with my type A self.  I definitely recommend her!


Second, with this beautiful new design I also wanted to announce I am going to start taking on sponsors.  Before you start with the groans, I am only taking a few so that in turn I can use those extra funds to sponsor other peeps so therefore more exposure for all!  Yeah total win win.  So if you are interested in sponsoring this crazy ole space of mine please feel free to send me an email so we can discuss blog stats, prices etc at  

Spots will be limited so please email me as soon as you can if you are interested!  

Third, I sponsored Erin over at Living in Yellow and she put together a sweet giveaway (see that sponsorship is already hard at work!)  I mean who doesn’t love cash money right? Hint my two links are following me on Bloglovin and Instagram.

Finally!  I was asked to co-host the Hump Day Blog Hop with Liz.  Have you checked her out yet?  She is so amazing!  Her weight loss journey, discipline and detailed posts outlining her amazing journey is completely inspiring.  Her midweek linkup is all about meeting new bloggers.  Just add your link and make sure to stop by all the fabulous bloggers!

Okay I told you there was a lot of housekeeping things going on today!  Don’t forget about my link up on Friday.  Also what do you think of the new design?  Finally please tell me who you have sponsored and have had a positive experience with.  Oh and what did you like about them?  I want to be a good sponsor because you know I’m crazy and Type A like that!  Hope you have a fabulous day thanks for hanging in there for all of that!  xoxoxoxo

    I am OBSESSED with your new design! As soon as I clicked on this post I was like WOAH! It looks awesome! Making it to the beach is on top of my bucket list for the summer!

  20. May 28, 2014 / 2:14 PM

    Love the new design. Very clean and easy to navigate through.
    Summer is going to be spent very relaxed and chill. I am trying to teach my toddler to swim, so there’s that on my bucket list. Also I’d like to take up sewing.

  21. May 28, 2014 / 2:21 PM

    Love the new design!

    Getting a nice tan and as many beach trips as possible!

  22. May 28, 2014 / 2:21 PM

    I don’t really understand all the sponsorship hype but then again I’m not really into the whole blog world too deeply. I like the redesign as it was nothing too drastic from your older, great one. :)

  23. May 28, 2014 / 3:00 PM

    Love the new layout! I switched over to WP in February and have changed my design so many times…I get bored, easily. The problem is that WP seems to be way more expensive I guess b/c of all the coding (which I do not understand! ha)…love the clean look though!

  24. May 28, 2014 / 3:35 PM

    Loving your new look. I really have been ,earning to so the same!

  25. May 28, 2014 / 3:42 PM

  26. May 28, 2014 / 4:07 PM

  27. May 28, 2014 / 4:43 PM

  30. May 28, 2014 / 6:45 PM

    Great new design! And new motto, too? Well done, friend. I think you need a little wine glass icon pouring onto the title for the grand finale of the new look hah.

  31. May 28, 2014 / 8:03 PM

    Hopefully we can scratch off moving! We’ve been trying to move for almost a year now… it has to work out eventually, right?? Thanks so much for the giveaway! :D

    Love love love the new design! It looks fabulous! I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing but didn’t know who to use so thank you for a recommendation!

  39. May 29, 2014 / 4:38 AM

    Id *maybe* like to go skydiving one day..unfortunately im DEALTHY afraid of heights, I couldnt imaging jumping out of an airplane but I feel like it would be a great thing to do. maybe after some drinks and anxiety pills for me…haha!

  40. May 29, 2014 / 11:11 AM

    I love changing designs, sometimes I think I made a blog just because it´s so much fun to think of cool headers and fonts and sigh….
    Your new look is def much classier and elegant, suits you well :) congrats.
    Oh and you´ve reached the sponsoring stage! I´m so jealous! lots of luck on that, I would help you out but I have no clue about that stuff.

  41. May 29, 2014 / 5:46 PM

    LOVE the new design! I love Natalie, she has such a great blog and her style is amazing.

    PS I’ve been the worst blog friend ever this week. Planning a vacation the week before your best friends wedding + adding a day trip to Alabama and back for work makes for one stressful week!!

    Hopefully I’ll be back to posting, and COMMENTING :), next week!

    xoxo, Jen

  42. May 30, 2014 / 1:12 PM

    I LOVE the blog design, it looks so pretty and clean. I think it’s great you are doing sponsors, I will certainly be signing up!

  43. May 30, 2014 / 2:05 PM

    The one thing I want to cross off my summer bucket list is going to a water park! Love those places but not soo much when they get to crazy busy.

    p.s. Love the new design!

  44. May 30, 2014 / 5:54 PM

    I plan to take a hiking trip this summer!

  45. June 3, 2014 / 4:55 PM

    I can’t wait to go have frozen custard and sit outside as it gets dark this summer – one of my favorite things to do!

  46. June 3, 2014 / 7:25 PM

    Obviously I’m behind but I love your new design! Looks fabulous, doll! The reason I’m behind was because I was crossing off a Summer bucket list item…take a beach trip!

  47. June 9, 2014 / 2:45 PM

    Love your layout!! Would like to talk sponsorship with you too :)
