Like clean laundry on a summer day..



Now!!!




As you may have noticed (if you haven't..then...um.. lol!) I now have a new blog design! Yippie! In the above pictures you can see my past designs. Yeah... I agree.. and to answer a few of you, I have no idea what I was thinking before. I just completely love my new one! My wonderful sisters (Sarah and Bree) created it - all - by - themselves. Aren't they amazing?! So, I was showing them some of the bloggers recommended by you lovely people (a HUGE thank you!!!) when suddenly Bree grabbed the computer and uploaded my blog. She practically made the whole thing in less than an hour! Then Sarah came and did all of the crazy coding stuff... I kinda stood there in shock. lol! They've got some sort of six-sense when it comes to computers. I've got blogging down - now let's NOT talk about CSS. What is that anyways?! ;) 


Writing for His Glory
And look at my new button!!! YES! Sarah made it.. sigh, I feel so spoiled!! Hmm..speaking of Sarah.. Okay, I'll tell you. She challenged me. I guess she read over my last post (was I was bragging a bit too much for you, Sarah?? ;)) and she challenged me to post my exact amount of summer reading time thus far (using her words here! lol!). Soo *scramble up to my bedroom to get my summer reading sheet* Sarah, because I am the loving sister that I am, I challenge you back. You must post weekly (every Wednesday) until summer reading ends, your amount of time. Yup. You had better do it too. ;) 

72 hours (On June 6th) 
And noowww...
102 hours and 30 minutes
exactly. 

I sure hope you are enjoying these little competitive sister contests, folks. :D And, as she said, we are also in a little competition over blog followers. Somehow, she just got 1 over me! (and that someone, yes Amanda, knows who she is. lol!!) So, if you are a new reader, give me a follow and I'll do the same for you. ;)
 Also, just to let you know, this is all in sisterly love! :D So, thank you so much all for helping me with my new design! I sure hope you love it! 

What do you think of my new design?
Who do you think will win our summer reading competition?
What do you do for fun with your sisters?? :)

  6. You have such a wonderful new blog design!! ;) Wow! You have to do a lot of reading for your summer reading program! I have to read only 8 books--we draw a piece of paper out of a bag that have different things the book needs to have/be. Some of the things I choose were: read a book with a blue cover, a librarian recommended book, and a nonfiction book!
