New Template

Okay, so lately I have not been too happy with my template on my mom blog.  It just did not look right to me, and I was not happy with the font choices, the design, etc.  I have been searching, searching and searching for a good free template that incorporates mom blog, children, and counselor in one. Sounds easy, right? Believe me, it was NOT easy and was super time consuming to find. And the choices? Wow, too many to go into but mostly it took deciding if I should go with a neutral color with or without a picture, a 1, 2 or 3 column layout, photographs at the top, adsense ready, etc.

Being a frugal mom, I also refused to pay anyone to customize my blog site (speaking of frugal, you have to check out a new blog I read at for great coupon stuff for moms).  So what you see on here today is what I have found so far.  I am still not 100% happy with this one, but I am going to try it out for a bit and see how it goes.

I also use a Wordpress blog so I can have the freedom to design it and add advertisements and all sorts of 'widgets' to my site, so as this is a plus, it does make things a bit more complicated. I am definitely not an HTML code girl, nor do I speak computer talk. My last computer science class was in high school, and things have come a long way since then.  Pascal anyone?

So please be honest and let me know what your thoughts are or if you have any suggestions on template sites that have cute blog designs.  I am still working on it and adding things to the sidebars and changing menus but hopefully it will be looking better soon.

Since all of my free time (while my baby naps) has been researching blog templates, I have not had time to blog lately, so I am leaving you with a cute picture of my little baby taking advantage of the beautiful Spring weather we have been having here!  Have a great weekend!


  1. I like this one! I think it looks good. Easy to read and see.

  2. Great, thanks!! I am still working on it but I hope it starts to look better. Thanks for the feedback!

  3. Thanks! Any feedback would be appreciated! I still have not gone the route of purchasing a design team for the site yet but maybe soon.
