Needed - YOUR thoughts/ideas - Gift card giveaway!!!

Hello my friends and wlecome to Friday and the weekend!  WOO HOO!!  So tell me - anything new and exciting on your weekend agenda's by chance?  We have a huge weekend planned starting with my son's school play that he is in - called...... Les Miserables - ever heard of it? LOL  Anyway, as long as they will let me, I WILL be taking pictures to show off on Monday - he has 3 big parts in it! :)  That is tonight and tomorrow night and then on Saturday and Sunday we will be doing our final shopping and packing for our trip for next week and I CAN'T WAIT!  We are so tired of the snow and cold and are MORE than ready for our Spring Break to Florida. 

Okay - soooo.... on to the question of the day - I need to (obviously) revamp my entire blog (as I no longer have but one or two people who comment anymore - and I love those people who do) and would love to know what you would like to see here on my "new and improved" blog in the bloggy world.  Do you want to see more family/vacation/daily normal pictures or maybe more restoration projects or maybe craft or recipes too?  Or.... maybe all of the above (you know - a page for each subject)?  I am also on the look out for a new blog makeover and I know pretty much what I am wanting and especially have the colors and design all figured out so if you have some ideas you can share with me on who I can go to for said makeover I would greatly appreciate your help. :)

I am thinking about changing the name of my blog as well and would like your input on that too.   I'm considering making this into a contest of some sort to help me come up with a new name for it.  The winner would receive a $25 gift card to someplace like Target, or Panera Bread, etc.  and possibly even there choice (depending on if we have that around here too and easily accessible) 

Sooo... give your thoughts, opinions, ideas, etc. and let's get this ball rolling.  I am not setting an end day to the contest as of yet, I just want your best and freshiest ideas.  And, in case you need a little help to get started (for the new name of the blog) - here are a few thoughts about me that come to mind currently to help:

1.    Southern Belle/Arkansas
2.    Sports Fan (i.e. Arkansas Razorbacks Football and Chicago Cubs baseball)
3.    Cooking/Baking
4.    Crafts/Restoration
5.    Sweet Tea
6.    Southern Drawl
7.    Hometown Girl
8.    Family/Friends
9.    Sun loving/Beach loving 
10.  Country Girl

Oh and one more thing - it needs to be something that the name will transfer with me easily in the event we ever move from the Northeast back to the South as well.  Because I actually LOVE the name that just popped in my head - BUT - it really is too "New York" and won't work for the South.  *rats*

Well..... have a great day and an even better weekend and be sure to look for pictures of my son's (with any luck) acting debut in his school play on Monday. 

Lots of love and hugs,


  1. I LOVE the names from 5, 6, and 7. They would all be perfect for you!!

    I love your blog and don't think you need to change what you are doing...but sometimes a revamp is good for the soul.

    I loved my blog designer, but there are many fantastic choices out there!


  2. I love #1, 5 and 6. I think if you are from the South, you can be a Southern Belle anywhere - same for your "southern drawl" and your love of sweet tea. The blog name should be a reflection of YOU, it will be great no matter WHERE you live.

    As far as blog design, I'm not sure. I like "cutest blog on the block" for free blog designs. I've never paid anybody before ('cause I'm poor). I built my header myself on Scrapblog and edited it on Photobucket. My html skills leaves something to be desired, which is why my background looks funny. I CANNOT figure out how to strech it. UGH!

    Tell your son to "Break a leg"! Can't wait to see the pictures. Which reminds me, as far as blog content, I vote for all the above.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. I have to say, I always love when bloggers post pics of their families and of themselves. I love putting a face to the names!

  4. I like Sweet Tea. It's cute, and can be read on multiple levels.
