Hi, all – Happy Monday! Notice anything different around here? Miss in the Midwest got a face lift during the weekend!

I had been feeling pretty uninspired with this space the last few months – I was tired of the colors, text, and my sad attempts at changing some of the coding myself on a template that I dished out quite a bit of money for at the beginning of last year. So, I took to Etsy and started researching premade templates, and I’m happy that I stumbled upon Eclair Design.

 This shop has some of the most chic and sophisticated premade templates that I have yet to come across and at a ridiculously affordable price. The shop owner designs for both WordPress and Blogger, so there’s something for everyone. I ultimately decided on the Lola & Co template for Blogger (I also was this close to choosing this template). I love how clean and straightforward the design is, and I think it’s easier to navigate than ever before. This template also came with coding for a full width header photo slider, but until I get better at my photography skills, that’s going to stay out of the mix for now.

Besides working on getting the new template installed and formatted practically half the weekend, I also managed to squeeze in a couple workouts, a Saturday night dinner date with our neighbors, and binge-ing on the last season of Parenthood on Netflix. Is anybody else finishing up this show? I think I’ve cried at every single episode, regardless if I’m happy or sad. Have any new show recommendations?

How was your weekend?

  1. Love the new look! Martin and I are currently making our way through Parentood on Netflix and I've been crying every episode lately – I don't know what took me so long to get started on it, but I love it!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
