Blog-Over Update

A month or so back I decided my blog needed a big ole revamp. So I created a list, and started crossing things off (YES! I included things I completed already just to cross it off). Here's my new update: 
  • Find a color scheme, and apply it. (Still tweeking this here and there. Always a work in progress)
  • Change name of blog (don't forget on July 15, 2013 you can find me!)
  • Add social media buttons
  • Use new template
  • Make a header (Still debating on it, but anything's better than before!)
  • Write an about me page
  • Create a Facebook page  (Find it here!)
  • Add pages
  • Make an "about me" page
  • Change my profile picture to an actual picture
  • Clean up the side bar
And this wasn't on the list, but I just added it, so, now it is:
  • Add the Pin it Hover html code. 
I've been seeing this all over blog land, but thought it was way out of my league to try. I found this easy peasy tutorial from Sweet Haute on the Blissful and Domestic Friday linky party. I love the kindess of other bloggers who take the time to teach the newbs and scardy cats how to do this stuff. What are some of your favorite blogger help posts?

May the momnesia be ever in your favor,

I Need to Keep My Mouth Shut.

How y'all been? Hope you're good. Oh, me? Oh, you know, just... losing my mind! In addition to my three jobs, I also:

said "I'll do it" to being the weight/score keeper for a biggest loser challenge among some Facebook friends. I participated in the last one, but I couldn't afford to lose another $50, so I volunteered to keep score this time. In addition to just tallying up the percentenges, I am trying to be a motivational coach as well. I hope they realize it's 100% "Do as I say, not as I do." :)

said "Okay" to becoming one of the publicity steering members for our MOPS group. This includes a newsletter for each meeting, a directory, marketing and publicity materials...

...last night after the meeting with the other publicity leader and the coordinator, my marketing brain (I have a BBA with a concentration in marketing) started thinking, and before I know it, I am emailing the coordinator pronouncing, "I'll create a website." Seriously, Jenny?! A website? Ugh. It is needed, and it will be awesome for my resume when I have to find a "big girl" job, and I am hoping those skills will transfter to this good ole blog.

I sometimes volunteer to help "stuff" the bulletins at the church. I was once doing this every Friday, however it's the first thing on the back burner when I need a little more time.

I also maintain (very badly) a blog. You know, the one you're reading. I'm going to get the hang of this thing one day.

Oh yeah, there's the baby, dogs, cat, husband, house, and three turtles not to forget about either.

I really need to organize my entire life like Abby did, however, if you are connected with me on Facebook, you'll know why I cannot do this on paper yet. At least not in a pretty way.

I think it's absolutely perfect that this is the theme of MOPS this year:

At least I have mucho material for blogs posts!

Do you have a problem with volunteering? Do you volunteer to help with things? How do you stay organized, and keep your family happy and taken care of as well?

I Have 3 Jobs!

1. I still sew for modMomme.

2. I work two days a week at an afterschool program at a church.
3. I am now an Usborne Books and More consultant.

Plus, I plan on "homeschooling" Addy this year, I am a steering leader for MOPS this year, and I am committed to this blog!

Yeah, we'll see how long all this lasts :) I am sure this will be great for momnesia stories.

How's your week going?

May the momnesia be ever in your favor,
