Do you notice anything different about us?

Don't you hate that question?  When someone asks me that my heart starts beating rapidly and I start searching the person, hoping I'll find it.

If I don't automatically know the answer to what is different, I always start with a feel good question:  Have you lost weight?  Then I go to:  is it your hair?  your clothes? your makeup?  your shoes????  At that point...I give up.

So, now I'm putting you on the spot...Do you notice anything different about us?

Have we lost weight?  I'm not even gonna go there.

Is it our hair?  Nope.  Not the hair.

Is it our clothes?  Nope.  Try again.

Is it our makeup?  What makeup?!?  Do I need makeup?  (just kidding)

The shoes?  Nope.  

Is it the new blog design???  YES!!  YOU GOT IT!!  YOU ARE SO GOOD!!

Ok.  Have you seen Despicable Me?  I hadn't and then a friend said that we should see it with our kids and she showed us this clip. It's the fluffy unicorn clip. (We got it for our kids for Christmas and have since watched it 3 times.)   Now, if you haven't seen it, take a sec and watch it because what I'm gonna say next will not have the same effect unless you can imagine this little girl.  

Ok, so this was a shortened clip but you can see what I mean.  When I saw our new blog design, I thought this:

"It's so CUUUUUUUTE!  It's so cute I'm gonna DIE!!"

And I thought it in that little girl's voice!!  (ok, maybe we watched too many movies over the break!?!)

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU a million times to Megan from I Teach What's Your Super Power?  How on earth she has time to do everything she does I have no clue but we soooo appreciate her designing this for us!  She is the sweetest and wants to do anything she can to make your blog YOU and to make you happy!!  We loved working with her.

Here is her design blog.  You should check it out!!
