back-to-school makeover (and a yard sale).

Wednesday, September 4, 2013

you know what I do when I'm super duper busy and can't even think straight? I pile more sh*t on my metaphorical plate. I know you do too so let's commiserate and procrastinate together.

apparently renovating a house and quitting my job wasn't stressful enough so I've also taken on the task of juggling 2 kids, 2 daycares, 2 blogs, 2 facebook/twitter/pinterest accounts, 3 email addresses, a new career, a distance ed course, a small business program, Trev's bookkeeping, a website design and a SaigeWisdom overhaul.

over the years I've tried - rather unsuccessfully - to hire different blog designers to update my "look", but I'm crazy crazy indecisive and end up setting them free long before any discussion on fonts can take place.

I was actually considering graphic/web design school before the wedding planning gig fell into my appreciative lap. I have SO many ideas, but no clue on how to execute them outside powerpoint and/or picmonkey. 

anyways Brittany from Gallery No. Eight accidentally responded to my blog design plea and the fact that I actually made it to install day with no tears and an intact computer is a testament to her patience and perseverance.

THANK YOU Miss Douglas! although I'm sure I've made you reconsider your
and will be switching "let's talk!" with "go away!"

she - being this blog - is still a work in progress (my menu bar links to no woman's land), but I think she's purdy and BlogPodium ready.

Like many o' bloggesses have said before me, September always feels like a new beginning (blame it on the 18 years I spent in school). This year feels especially fresh as I'm beyond excited - and borderline exhausted - by all the newness happening around here. Trev & I even hopped on a pair of waterskis this long weekend #firsttimers and I double dog dared Uncle Bobo he couldn't flip me off the tube (my 30 year old body was regretting all the smack talk the morning after as I drowned my aches and agony with 3 parts Bailey's : 1 part coffee).

that's what you call a "yard sale"

* I wrote this post in under 20 minutes which is a new record for me and also the reason it reads like Saige wrote it. mucho sorry.

it's perfect! It was worth the time to find someone to get your vision. I love the colours and the about image. It's perfect and totally worthy of blogpodium.

LOVE the new look. It is so "you!" - which please take as a HUGE compliment. September is always the "new year" for me. My husband and I are both teachers and so are my parents... January has NOTHING on the rejuvenating and reinvigorating power of crisp fresh Sep!

The design is so perfectly you. I love it!

It looks amazing!! Big congrats to you. I am soooo the same. A simple thing like a blog update could take me 10 years. ha.

Sara I LOOOOOVE it so much. It's fabulous! I keep staring at it, the picture, the font, the header. Also, I do so hope you are enjoying all of the crazy even though it gets overwhelming. You are on an exciting adventure!

Julie said...

Looking good!!!! I totally wish I had my #^%$ together and revamped my blog before blogpodium. Speaking of which, I'm so tracking you down once I arrive in Toronto!

Looks great! I have been contemplating a blog makeover and know I should just break down and pay someone else to do it for me.

So proud of you honey...you never cease to totally amaze me and wonder where all of 'that' came from!

I LOVE BRittany. She just made over my blog too! And you will get to meet her in Toronto. I met her last year, she is an absolute sweetheart! Love her :)

Your blog looks fabulous! I have a few links that don't work either.
