Bloggerwhelmed!!!!!!!!!!

Hello there blogging beauties. Hope you're all well and had a fabulous weekend! Mine was basically pure crap but I won't bore you with the details. And it seems all I've been doing since yesterday is working on my blog, and look how NOT far I've come! I've lost all my cute widgets and I can't find the same counter I had, and I'm just getting overwhelmed. What are your opinions on the new 3-column format? Is the text too bright-white to read comfortably? This inquiring mind wants to know.

In other news, I just got done wrapping Madison's birthday presents (she's 7 tomorrow!... or today, depending on when you're reading this) and stupid me, I forgot to buy both tape and wrapping paper. I had a little bit of paper left over, but for tape I had to use the packing kind. Not fun to work with people! Then when I ran out of paper, I resorted to using the Murano tissue paper that Jimmy has thrown ALL OVER the family room. Hey, at least some of the mess got picked up in the process!

And alas, it is also my birthday. Thirty-eight tomorrow/today. Egads, how the time flies, eh? Ooh, I just turned Canadian for a moment.

Until next time, Justine :o )

    This is sooo cool Justine! What do you mean you haven't gotten far with it? It moves so fast and I like the 3 columns. I love the header. Oh, and the butterfly! Okay, I gotta go see what else you've done. Looking real good girl!
    Hugs,
    Penny

    Hey! Looks good. I don't see anything by the URL. Enjoy your special day tomorrow! Madison too. Yay! Take pics and blog!

  • Raxx - A day in the life

    Happy Birthday Madison and Justiney!!

  • aimee

    I love the froggie and the 3 column, but white text on a black (or dark) background makes my eyes hurt.

    Happy (early) birthday to you and Madison! I hope you both have a wonderful day!

  • onlymehere

    Happy birthday tomorrow! I guess it's just me but I have to move the bar to see the rest of your page. Maybe my settings are off from everyone elses, other than that it's really cute!

  • Bridget

    Happy birthday to you both! Maybe I should finish your present tomorrow!!! Hang in there, it will be in the mail soon!
    Love ya, Gigi

  • imjacobsmom

    This looks great! I like this 3 column design. I barely have mine figured out. I feel like such an amateur....Happy Birthday! ~ Robyn

  • Tismee2

    Happy Birthday Madison, hope you have a great day today(?).

    and a very Happy 38th to you too Justine. Gosh all these birthdays in just a few days, I'd be stressed to death planning all these in such a short time. Hope you all have a great day and lots of nice prezzies.

    I love the blog and can even read it. The text is still a teeny bit bright for me, but is a good size so I'm not squinting to read it. (But then I'm not your normal blog reader of white on black) If I start getting a migraine I'll let you know!

    Like your new weather forecast although I hope it changes to something other than storms in the next two weeks!

    Morning girl!!! Happy Birthday to you & Madison! I like the new header but you said 3 columns and i am sitting here only seeing 2 andI think ok what am I missing...so I scroll over to the right and then I find the 3rd...I must have a small screen! Girl, I know so little about computers and blogging that once I tried to change some things on mine and everything disappeared! You should hear me when I learn something new..I set here and squeal like a sissy girl to myself! Hope you have a fantastic day today girl!!!!

    HAPPY BIRHTDAY TO YOU
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY

  • mrsben

    EH......first things first. A little bird by the name of Tootsie told me that you are celebrating a Birthday so I scotted over here.

    So HAPPPPPPY BIRTHDAY JUSTINE. Wishing you a beautiful day and may your B/Day wish come true. NOW BLOW OUT THE DA*N CANDLES, EH. (9:22 am/July 28th. Hope I got the right day.)

    Hugs -Brenda-

  • mrsben

    Now...regarding your new format. LOOKING GOOD GIRL but.....

    It is probably just ME, but because of the continuous pop ups, I kind of find your guesbook a bit distracting while I am trying to read your post.
    Also, something I do like to do; is view the original post while making the comment, but for some reason a lot of Bloggers have dropped that feature. (Hey when you're my age, eye co-ordination isn't the same nor is the memory retention....ha! (You did ask.)

    Sorry to hear that your weekend was 'crap', so I shall bestow a weekend of sunshine upon you.....ZAP! Hugs -Brenda-

  • Lisa

    Happy B-Day to Madison.

    Happy B-Day to you Justine.

    I like the new look. Unfortunately, I am stuck on a 7-year-old laptop and I cannot see the entire blog. I have to scroll side to side to see the sidebars. But thats my bad. LOL

    I love the black and white look, very modern. And your header is awesome!

    Keep you the work I love the changes!

  • Nancy Jane

    I pop in and out here whenever I can and you are one funny woman! Hope you both have a wonderful birthday, and 38 is not old, trust me on this one! Nancy

  • Elizabeth

    Looks great; I no longer need to scroll left-right.
    1 small thing, at least on my monitor, the 2 sidebars are a tiny shade lighter than the middle column. Don't know if that was on purpose.
    You really learned a lot at Blogbuster! I love the sidebars being different widths, and the butterfly dividers!
    Tell me about the Bookmark icon. How is it helpful to you?

  • Life on Bonnie Lane

    Oh good, it's not midnight yet so I can still wish you a Happy Birthday! Woohoo! Hope you got lots of presents and cake and ice cream, and lots of love for your birthday!

    Happy Birthday also to Madison! My daughter and I have birthdays one week apart.

  • Shelia

    Justiney!! thanks for popping in. You know, since I am so wonderful, I asked the store keepers if I could take pictures. No problem, but one asked why? and I told her I had a blog and wanted to showcase her store. She said - what's a blog? Oh, well. I was nice and bot something from her. When you gonna share about your birthday? I hope you had a wonderful time.
    Be the sweetest sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  • mrsben

    Justine: Hope you had a wonderful B/Day yesterday. Re the Guestbook, ahhhh that's better. I kind of liked the contrast side bars as reminded of chocolaté, but the black is good. Love your Visitors animated frogs (which I didn't notice yesterday) and the butterfly.

    Have been wanting to ask; how is your little niece making out after her eye surgery? Its been how many days now? Such a sweet little girl and a brave little one.

  • The Scarlett Rose Garden

    Happy Birthday Justine!!
    I'm sorry you had a crappy weekend... I could say the same, but in a good way, *snort*!

    Your new page is cute! Only thing is, it's not fitting on my screen for some reason. Half of the third collumn on the right is missing.

    An no, I don't always hafta look like a beauty queen in pics. Beleive me, there is proof of that swimming around on the net. But those bike pics just made me think, "is that *really* what I look like??" So no way, lol...

  • French

    Ok so I thought about a present for you~~~there is a bow on top of it~~~(he's I mean--- it's kinda cute) LMAO~~~Hugs hope all went well! French;)
