Testing, Testing, 1-2, 1-2, 1-2-3

Hello Hello Hello my housewife lovers!!!!!!!! Let me first just say this isn't a full blown "real" post but it feels good to be "almost" back!

I have a whole new design layout thanks to the fabulous Miss Ashlyn over at Let it be Beautiful! This has been in the works for some time now, but I wasn't in a rush and Ashlyn was super busy studying her booty off in school! I knew it would get done when the time was right! Well now is that time!

I've missed the blogging world terribly and can't wait to dive back into it! I'm really looking forward to taking the blog in a whole new direction and to make this a productive and enjoyable hobby! The design was first and foremost! Now that it is complete, we've already moved on to the next step... making it more mobile! Meaning, either invest in a laptop or iPad! We bought a gorgeous iMac two Christmas's ago and while we love it, we obviously can't take it anywhere or use it throughout the house! I really enjoy spending time with my hubby in the evenings and considering he goes to bed at 9 pm our quality time is precious! I hated sitting in our office blogging away while he was in the living room watching TV! I also can't stand when we don't go to bed together, but going to bed at 9 really limits my productivity in the evenings, especially when I don't get home from work until 6! Needless to say an iPad or laptop was top on our "next to get" list! Well... low and behold we now have a Macbook courtesy of my in-laws! We can't thank them enough for this gift! Now I can blog on the couch with the hubby and "go to bed" with him yet still get things accomplished! So yes, as I write this, the hubs is sprawled out snoring and Baby Reef is keeping my feet warm! There are many more items on my blogging "to-do" list, but I think I am off to a roaring start!

I hope all of you have been doing fabulously these last few months and I can't wait to catch up with each and every one of you!

I'll leave you with our 2012 Christmas card! For the last 4 years I've used Vista Print for our Christmas cards as they are extremely inexpensive. This year I just couldn't find a design I really liked, so I checked out a few other websites like Minted and Shutterfly! I decided on Shutterfly as they were having a HUGE sale, a Free Shipping promo, and a ton of designs I loved! I saved HALF on our order! Can't go wrong with that! Now that the majority have been mailed out, I can share with all of you!
