Well, ladies and gentlemen, the day has finally come.....the blog redesign is complete (mostly)! While there are still a few small things to be fixed or adjusted, this is IT and I'm so excited to unveil it to you all. I think it suites us well.
HUGE thank you to Jaclyn Tubre for this much needed blog-lift. It was my birthday present from her all the way back in JANUARY. Yes, I said (typed, really) January. I'm sure you are all fully aware of my procrastination problem by now, but I'm making every effort to change my ways. I'm even considering starting up a Procrastinators Anonymous group......but I'll get to that later ;) Procrastinators....UNITE (tomorrow)!!!
The masterpiece you see here was all made possible by Leelou Blogs. She took my ideas and RAN with them. I don't know how she did it, but it's like she pulled the vision directly from my scatter-brain. Then she washed it, trimmed it, embellished it, rotated it and developed it into the perfect blog for my family. I'm sure it would have been easier trying to herd a bunch of Mountain Dew-laden squirrels, but Leelou worked her booty off to get everything just right. If you're a little confused about the theme, think way back to circa 1989 and the movie Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Party on, dudes!
I do believe this makeover will get me motivated to post more often. I just can't stop looking at it! I'm especially fond of how she was able to get the Choo Choo Wagon in there and then all the little characters. Each one of the "kids" is holding something so dear to them personally. Pius LOVES his sports balls and claims each one in our house as his own. He's even getting really good at playing catch right now (and actually catching the ball from a good distance away)! Forrest and his green blankie are pretty much inseparable. You'd think it was glued to his left hand and left shoulder by the way he carries it around with him all day and night. Danna Lynn is perfectly content sitting amongst a pile of books and reading to herself in the sweetest voice you've ever heard. The Lainerzinski is gonna be our little race car driver, for sure. He sees a steering wheel and that's the only thing in the world that's important to him at that time. I swear he says, "Cah! Cah! Cah!" at least 50 times a day on average.
And then, of course, you've gotta admire all the clothing the characters are wearing. Denver Broncos for all the boys and Alabama Crimson Tide for Danna and me. The Grafs are representin'! We're looking forward for football season to f-i-n-a-l-l-y start back up again.
Besides the new blog design, I've decided to shake things up a bit in other venues as well. You may have noticed the Avon button on the left side of the screen. I am proud to say I am an official Avon Representative......again. I originally started selling it several years ago before the quads were even a twinkle in their daddy's eye. I continued being an Avon rep even while up in Phoenix during the pregnancy. However, I just didn't have the time to devote to it once the chitlins were born. Now that the babies aren't such demanding "babies" like they used to be (they're more demanding "toddlers" now), I wanted to try my hand at it another time.
I've always loved Avon because they are so much more than just makeup (but I really like their make up, too....especially the new mineral line that works just like Bare Escentuals but is MUCH less expensive). There's a little bit of everything available to cater to every member of the family, and the prices just can't be beat. So, if anyone is in the market for some great products and want to help support the Graf Quads while they're at it, I'd love to be your "lady"! You can browse the brochure at my Online Store and purchase some goodies for yourself, your kids, the spouse, parents and anybody else on your list (it's not too early to start thinking about Christmas....eeeeek!). When you order online, the items will be shipped directly to your house, whether you live near by or far away from me. And right now, you can even take advantage of FREE SHIPPING! Score! So please check out my store and look around. I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have about Avon. Just shoot me an email (nursemoni at gmail dot com) or give me a call. And thank you for even considering making me your own, personal Avon Lady!
Hope you're liking the new Graf blog as much as I do! Let me know what you think!
