Friends, you caught us with our pants down, so to speak. (Note: the doll in this photo technically has no clothes on whatsoever. She is not simply missing pants. Brian said this is a creepy photo but I’m using it anyway, because I feel that she has a very animated pose for a doll. Don’t you think? It’s like she’s practicing to be a hurdler. She likely heard that Boston is a contender to host the summer Olympics and wants to be ready so that she can make her hometown proud).
Anyway, as you may notice the blog looks different today. I had a big plan to totally makeover the blog, and then to do a dramatic “reveal” the way they always do on What Not To Wear. It would be a total transformation and it would be STUNNING. It would leave you breathless, probably. It would be like the “ugly” girl in all 80s movies who gets dolled up for the prom and descends down the stairs, shocking everyone at her magnificent transformation from ugly duckling to beautiful swan.
But that didn’t happen.
It didn’t happen because I don’t really know how to work things like “computers” and “code” and “the internet” and so I couldn’t find a way to keep my re-design under wraps until I was completely done. I could only figure out how to save changes as I go, making them immediately viewable to the public. This I didn’t want. It would be like watching the ugly duckling get her dental work done and then sit through hair and makeup and then shave her armpits before she walks down the stairs. No magic in that.
So, all of this is to say that while the blog is undergoing its transformation you will notice changes and tweaks and it may look like someone a bit mentally unstable or at LEAST very erratic is at the helm. Of course all of that is true, but please don’t judge. Just know that in the coming weeks this blog, much like my newly athletic family, will be getting hotter and hotter until we’re all ready to be queen of the prom. It will be STUNNING.
p.s. If you have any feedback for the redesign, let me know in the comments! As Michael Scott from The Office once said, “Please leave your constructive compliments.”
