It Was A Good Weekend

Some MORE big changes for my little blog.

After reading the SITS blog on Saturday and realizing how cheap it is to get your own web domain (only $10 a YEAR) I decided it was about time to own my domain. So welcome to! How exciting is that? It feels pretty darn amazing! Now, for those of you that already have my button proudly displayed on your blogs (and thank you, by the way!), please make sure to change the web address to my new one. And for those that DON'T have my button - well, why the heck not??

I now have FIVE sponsors, how exciting is that? So please look to the left and check out each of their stores. And look forward to some pretty fantastic giveaways (yes, PLURAL) in the near future.

This weekend was pretty great. We watched some amazing baseball (even though the Twins did lose yesterday it was still a good game), at candy (yay for Jelly Bellies and Werther's) and watched some movies (Transformers 2 and Zoolander). Oh AND I took my math quiz, which I was a little nervous about, and it was SO EASY. So far, so good. I am rockin' as far as school goes.

Right now I am just trying to take things one day at a time. And here is hoping this next week is great - one day at a time.

I've been thinking about going the .com route, too. And we're also baseball fans. Totally watched our Washington Nationals wipe the field with the Brewers on Friday and Saturday. But the Brew Crew came back big on Sunday, with 10 runs scored in the 1st!


Congrats! :) Buying your first domain is always exciting. You will find there are soo many more options for design and control as well!
