Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Snow Day & Updates!

Snow Day & Updates!

I know I haven't been around much since Thursday. If you noticed, I decided to freshen up the blog over the weekend. We left for a little getaway on Friday, so I thought it would be a good time to make some changes during the down time. I've been wanting to fix the site up for a while, I just never found the time to make the changes myself. So, I enlisted the help of Lucia Barabas to help me achieve the look I was going for. If you are looking for a new blog design, or some cute blog icons, I highly recommend checking out what she has to offer!

Like many other areas, the snow decided it would be fun to dump all over us this weekend. We had the last laugh though, taking full advantage of the snow days for a little outdoor play. All of the local tubing hills were closed, but we had our own tubes on hand, so we hunted down a suitable hill and made a day of flying down the slopes at record speeds.

How was your weekend? Did you get any snow in your areas?

  2. What the what? You opt for this Lucia woman instead of the design mogul from DEZZY'S HOUSE OF DESIGN? I might never forgive you for this blashphemy! :) .... seriously.....

    Hope you're not under too much snow... we haven't seen it almost at all this winter... not that I complain....

    1. PS, I'd make the post background in light rose colour to make it different from all the whiteness and to give the layout some focus. It's too much white like this.

    2. Dezzy! I didn't know you did blog work too! Movie mogul, cake decorator and a blog designer. Is there anything you can't do? When I get an itching for a new design, I'll be sure to hit you up :)

    3. You mean you haven't seen NEED A BANNER button under my header which has been there for more than a year? Scandal I say, scandal.
      I'd work a bit on the new one that you have if me was you because it needs more of your personality.

    4. What do you expect when you post up half naked photos af all the yummiest celebrities? We aren't thinking about new blog banners then ;) I'll definitely switch it up later. I am kinda digging the plain Jane vibe after having all those busy and dark graphics for the last few years.

  4. I lead a group of 5-6 year old girl guides and I took them tubing last year, but it was an indoor snow dome. Great photos.

  5. I saw a little bit of your weekend adventure over on IG, so I can't wait to hear more about that. But back to the snow, we had a snow day yesterday and the kids have a 2 hour delay this morning. It was that sleety/yucky snow, so they didn't go out an play in it.

  8. I noticed the new look when I was here recently and love it. We haven't had much snow recently and I love it that way. Seems like the kids had a lot of fun though.

  9. Oh we definitely have snow and more is expected! I didn't even know there were places for tubing--sledding and tubing or whatever would get you to the bottom of a local hill (large piece of cardboard) was where I always was when I was a kid--me and all my friends and sometimes even some of our Dads.

  10. I love the new look of your blog. It came out really nice. We got another foot of snow dumped on us. The kids didn't have school yesterday. I've had enough of the snow quite frankly. ;)

  18. Your blog does look great!! We got lots of snow the last few days. Today all is calm, but tomorrow,... it all starts again.

  19. Love the fresh new look. Where I am in MI we've were fortunate this winter to not get dumped on much until the other day. Then we found ourselves trying to shovel our way out.

  20. I like the new look of your blog. I'm not a fan of show but like tubing or sledding in it once in a while. Looks like y'all took advantage and had lots of fun with the snow!

  24. the snow angels....it's lovely, isn't it...My kids love spending some times on the snow but I have to remind them all the time that its too cold after a while. The snow tubing is fuuun. Love the new look of your blog :)

  25. I am so jealous! While it has definitely been cold here, we haven't had any snow! Just ice and bitter coldness with a dusting of snow.

  26. Wow it's been almost a whole month since posting and the country is still getting pounded with snow. Just no end in sight. Hope my elderly folks are OK in the Midwest.
