Just think PRETTY. As a blogger, I am always searching for ways to improve my website design to attract new visitors and keep it visually appealing for the ones that visit on a consistent basis! Let's face it, Blogging is a shallow business. A lot of it is based around looks and first impressions. If you don't have a well designed website, you may as well retire it. If your following is not increasing, than consider this: your website design may be to blame! It's unfortunate because I'm sure you are putting a lot of time and effort into researching topics, creating, and writing fresh content for your site and even still it is not making a difference. It can get quite frustrating! With that said, I'd like to help!

We went to a local carnival this past weekend and wouldn’t you know they had a bull ride! It didn’t take long for it to get the ol’ hubby’s attention and before I knew it, he was holding on for dear life! I’m so happy I had my camera with me (can’t believe I was actually debating on whether to bring it)! The expressions I caught on camera were priceless! While I was snapping away, his sister was timing him to see how long he could stay on! It was a freaking riot! Alivia watched with what could only have been confusion ! I don’t think she knew what to make of it! Bull Ride? None for me thanks! I sure had a heck of a time watching my husband on it though! I even busted his chops a little when he fell off. Accused him of having (how can I say this nicely) girl parts if you know what I’m saying! Of course, who am I to talk? I didn’t even have the courage to try! It’s amazing how much of a wimp I’ve become in my old age! If it were 1o years ago, I would have been riding that thing like there was no tomorrow! Okay, okay, I have to give the hubby props! Go baby!

Over the last month I've noticed my little one, Alivia, stuttering quite a bit. At first I didn't think anything of it, but as it started to worsen and become more frequent I grew concerned. In order to establish whether she had control over it, I would remind her to take her time and think about what she wanted to say before she said it. This seemed to help. When I reminded her, she would pause for a good 5 - 10 seconds and then out her statement would come stutter free! This eased my mind a bit. Of course, being a first time parent, over protective, and a worry wart of sorts, I put a call into her Pediatrician anyway.

Do you have a shopping addiction? I sure do! Before I had my first child, Alivia, it was a handbag and shoe addiction. Now that I have Alivia, it's an addiction to little girl's clothing! The beautiful colors, enticing trims, fun prints, and soft fabrics always seem to call my name when I walk by. And because Alivia loves clothing, shoes, and accessories just as much as me if not more makes it almost impossible to fight the urge to buy her pretty things! Let me tell you how bad it's gotten.

It's been awhile since I blogged about Alivia's Intermittent Exotropia. If you missed my last update, Back to Patching, feel free to catch up. Additionally, I have a page dedicated to all of our Intermittent Exotropia updates (including resources) so if you haven't checked it out already, have at it!

Before I get into my post, I just wanted to turn your attention over to the poll I have displayed in my sidebar to the right. I am trying to establish which topics readers find interesting. I hope you'll take the few seconds to vote. I would appreciate it very much and thanks in advance if you do!

Are you new to Photoshop or does Photoshop frighten you? C'mon, you can tell me. It frightened me terribly when I first opened it so trust me when I say I understand completely! Can I tell you a little secret though? It’s not as scary as it looks. That’s right. In fact, with a little workspace organization, you will be up and running in no time! Promise!
