Extreme Makeover

I think I score 2 more points on Nancy's Bloggeritis Quiz because I just spent money to have my blog designed. Yep, hard-earned moolah that, if invested now for Little Guy's education might, in 20 years, have actually paid for two weeks of his college tuition. (Little Guy, will you ever forgive me?)

Thank you to Kelly at Nello Design who designed my new template. I wouldn't be surprised if Kelly has a dart board with my picture on it due to what a high maintenance client I was. However, she never let on, and is all-around awesome to work with. Kelly also just designed Stacy's new Lollipop site. I highly recommend a visit over there if you haven't checked it out yet.

*****
Oh, and on a totally random note, I have to say that I am somewhat disturbed by the fact that of all the pictures on my blog, this is the one that has gotten the most clicks in the past two days. So what's up with that? Come on, site meter doesn't lie, people.

Love your new page, it's great and it certainly seems to fit your personality.

As far as the picture...I wish I had an answer.

It looks great!

I think I might go the paid design route, too. At least I'm looking at options. I might have to revisit my own quiz and see if my score's gotten worse. ;-)

Love the new digs.

Um, yeah, that's a bit disturbing. But it is a trainwreck of a picture. Hard to look away until you realize just what it is she's doing.

What good taste you have. LOVE IT. the only thing I don't love is that it, or my dumb computer, won't let me scroll down or over. Other than that, LOVE IT. so pretty....I can barely remember what your old look was now. :) Kinda like when somebody gets their hair cut and you can barely remember what their old hair looked like? Oh, is that just a problem I have? Nevermind. Carry on. Loooooovvvveeee the new look.

Great design!

I think the hits on the pic are out of curiosity. Unless you've actually pumped, you may have no idea what it looks like.

a) that's hilarious.

b) I have officially fallen in love with you to the point that I would like to propose marriage.

well?

*stands there, flashing MotR with a diamond the size of a breast pump, wondering why she's hemming and hawing - I mean, look at the size a that thing*

oh. you heard that I'm already married. well, it's true, but -- I -- oh. okay, yes. I'll put the diamond there if you say I should. it sounds somewhat uncomfo- oh. you think that people who attempt polygamy suck? okay.

*skulks off screen*

Mothergoosemouse: that is a perfectly rationale (and non-creepy) reason why someone would click on that picture. OK, I'm feeling better about it now!

Lildb: I thought you would never ask!! YES!! I will marry you!! LOL.

Great new design. I love the color!

Those ads showing a smiling woman pumping both breasts while talking on the phone have always bothered me. Can't you imagine the convo? "Hey, what's that sound in the background?" "Oh, that! It's nothing, I'm just pumping my breasts while we speak. Isn't it wonderful?" Creepy....

I do love your new design. It seems alot of the blogs I visit have a new look, is there something everyone isn't telling me?

love the new look.
You probably have some perv trying to chek out the boobs on the "milking maid"

Blogger Mommy off the Record said...

Lisa: of course I don't mind, silly. I am flattered!

Les: I dunno. Maybe it's a summer thing. I was just ready for something different and I have no idea how to do the design or upload a template myself so I asked Kelly for help. Her web design services are really affordable, which helped.

I nearly sold some stuff on Ebay to excuse getting mine done, but I'm such a cheap a#$. And who'd take me seriously anyway? LOL!

Nice format!
