Random Fun Stuff

First of all...

I won a free design from Delicious Designs by Trista! What do you think?

In my opinion, she NAILED what I asked for!! I told her I wanted to go with a general theme of "ruling" and I wanted to simplify the look of my blog. I suggested the picture of the little prince and asked for a crooked crown in the signature. I let her do the rest! I love the color scheme and the simplicity! She even came up with the tag line ( is too clean), which I LOVE!!!

Trista was very professional, timely, and is obviously quite talented! I recommend her if you are looking for a new design for your blog. Tell her I sent ya! :)

Now, for the random fun stuff...

April is my birthday month! Jeff turned 37 this year; I'm 3 years younger, so that makes me 28.

In celebration of my birthday month, I want to get to know YOU better!! I got this idea from MissElaine and I thought is was a fabulous way to get to know my readers. I was shocked to see this blog has 31 public readers! WOW! I started this blog just as a way to keep my family and friends up-to-date with our family. I had no idea the friends I would make out in the blog-o-sphere!

So, here's what I want from you for my birthday:

If you have been blogging for at least one year, go back to April 2008, pick a post you want me to read and put it in Mr. Linky below. This will give me an opportunity to visit each of you and learn something that you want me to know about you.

If you haven't been blogging for a year, go back to the first month you started blogging and pick a post to insert.

If you aren't a blogger, please leave me a comment about yourself!

Now for the really fun stuff!

I plan to do small giveaways the last three weeks in April to celebrate, but you'll need to participate in order to be entered!

This week there is no giveaway because you're giving me a gift by introducing yourself!

Looking forward to knowing you better!

While looking through last April's posts, I discovered that I have been blogging (on a regular basis) now for exactly one year and one day.

Since I'd been blogging (very) sporadically for years before that, I'd never paid attention to the date of my (sorta) one year anniversary.

So, thanks for reminding me! ;-)
