Welcome

Welcome

June 13, 2006

You are now at my new website.

“But I didn’t type in a different url today? How can I be here?” you ask.
Dude, I don’t know. But my fabulous designer Emily,swankwebstyle.com knows. She is the one who bonked you on the head, rendered you unconscious, and dropped you here.
Change your bookmarks so we don’t have to go through the whole duct tape, kidnapping, throwing you in my trunk again. It’s exhausting, frankly.
I feel like when I brought my first baby home from the hospital. And I stared at him because he was so beautiful, but I had no idea what to do other than to stare. I was afraid that I would break him. Yes I did just compare my blog to my firstborn son.

The header photo is one from my dear friend and wonderful photographer Stacy her blog and amazing photographs can be found at Jurgen Nation

Come back later. Hopefully I will have a real post up by then and I will have had my fill of the staring. Also I hope to find the spell check. Surely there is a spell check? Because God knows that I would never win any Spelling Bees and if I am left to my own creative spelling devices,well let’s just say that it won’t be pretty.

  8. rachel says:

    gorgeous! very cool, even for someone who doesn’t like pink. :)

    can you tell me, then, where I put the duct tape? I put it somewhere “safe”, and can’t find it.

  9. Beth says:

    Congrats on the redesign! I’m glad to see your archives present also. :-) (Might want to recheck your link to Jurgen Nation, as it currently includes your URL.)

  10. Meg says:

    Holy Schnitzel! I love it! PINK! PINK! PINK!

  11. Danielle Hunt says:

    This is a suprise!!! It’s pretty. I’ve updated my bookmarks so you can tell your henchman that’s one less to hit tomorrow.

  12. Jenn says:

    I love it! I love the boxed-in entries. How easy to read.

  13. Cheryl says:

    Chris - it’s just beautiful - Congrats on this new baby.

  14. Carola says:

    I loved the old picture of all your kids, but this page looks nice too. I am bad at making changes, but that of course is just me. Congratulations!

  15. amanda says:

    It looks awesome. I love the pink accents.
    :)

  16. lilly says:

    Change is good…… but for a while I’ll miss the yellow wallpaper.

  17. Darren says:

    HOORAY! Congratulations, Chris!

  18. peepnroosmom says:

    Chris, I love your new site. Love it, love it, love it!

  19. Lori says:

    You are a brave woman to change, but it looks fantastic! I love the pink.

  20. Katie says:

    Wow!

    And ouch, duct tape…

  21. Corey says:

    New site looks fabulous!

  22. Y says:

    Goodbye blogger! Hello, pretty new wordpress blog!

    I love it, woman! It really looks awesome.

  23. Jordana says:

    It looks great over here. And perhaps now that you’ve changed the address I’ll remember where you are. I’ve had your blog’s name changed on my page for ages, but because the address hadn’t changed half the time I couldn’t find you in my own blogroll. I’m dense like that sometimes.

  24. stacey says:

    Love the new layout! and the colors…………..((stare))

  25. InterstellarLass says:

    Love it! Very pretty!

  26. Jaybird says:

    **sniff** But yellow is my favorite color. What?? You don’t care? Couldn’t you just have another REAL baby?!? I hear that your hearing will still work. LOL!

    Nah—it’s very nice. Congrats!

  27. ben says:

    New diaper! New diaper!

    Woot!

  28. um skandar says:

    No, no, no!! Not pink! Not for the mother of six boys! I first found as the Big yellow house (yes, I know the house is really linen white) but I associate you with yellow, not this pinky stuff! YELLOW!! Please swap the pink for yellow.

  29. Motherhood Uncensored says:

    You got me there for a minute. I chalk it up to much needed sleep. However, I’m pretty sure here is not the place to be complaining about sleep, since I have WAY less kids than you.

    Love it. Gorgeous.

  30. Karen Rani says:

    Oooo Emily is a goddess…I love her and love the new look!!!! Beautiful!

  31. kate says:

    I love the new site! Beautiful!

  32. Amy says:

  33. nabbalicious says:

    It looks awesome! Congratulations!

  34. Jennifer says:

    I love it what a nice looking site!

  35. ragamuffin says:

    I’m just getting acquainted but you make me laugh, so I’m back every day. I am IMPRESSED! Big change and well done. Even comes up faster (makes a difference when you’re on dial-up!).

  36. Ashley says:

    New Bookmark…check. Congrats!

  37. Heather says:

    Love it, looks great. I am a little confused though, um skandar says its PINK??? Am I color blind or has my computer gone haywire?? Isnt it a lavender color? Anyways,looks awesome. bookmarked-check!

  38. Carola says:

    I thought I was the only one, but Heather pointed out what I was shy to say…I also see a very light purple color…no pink…

  39. jody says:

    I’ll say it again…totally gorgeous.

    Wordpress doesn’t have spell check, but you can download a plug-in for it.

    I spel wors then u.

  40. Dana says:

    Your blog looks great!

    I recently switched from blogger to WP and had the same fear of breaking it for at least a full day. :)

  41. Susan says:

    Oh, wow, two things I love - Wordpress and Chris, together at last. Oh, by the way, just in case you use Firefox for your browser you can download a kick-ass spell checker that works on every webpage you visit, even places like the comment box on other blogs. You can find it here. I don’t know what I’d do without it.
