Happy Spring! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
I know you are all wondering how the blog move is going. Well, it could be better. Imagine I came to your home and removed everything you own from every cabinet, every closet and every drawer. Every. Single. Thing. Even down to the toothpicks in the kitchen cupboard and the aspirin in the medicine cabinet.
Now imagine I threw it all out side on your lawn…all 40 eleven billion things. Now you have to put it all back where it goes except there’s one catch. You’re not putting it back in your house, instead it has to go in the house across the street that you’ve never been in before and know nothing about.
Okay, that’s probably a bit of an exaggeration but that’s how I feel. Word Press is seeing all the “labels” on my posts in Blogger as categories, so I now have 200+ categories on the new blog and about 185 of them are not really categories I want across the top of the new blog. It’s mind boggling and honestly, I’m still trying to figure out where I should begin to try and fix it all. I’ll spare you the details of what I’ve tried and isn’t working.
I know I will love WordPress. One day. Just not today.
Since it will take a few weeks/months to get my house blog in order again with posts underneath category headers where you can actually locate them, I’ll continue blogging right here at good old Blogger for a while longer. I hope it will only be for a few days or maybe one more week. Hopefully I can copy and paste these last posts over to the new blog when the time comes to move those.
Now let’s talk about something fun. :) Chip and Nancy are flying home today from the resort they’ve been staying in all week for their honeymoon. Today is Chip’s birthday and Nancy’s is only six days from now, so you know what that means…party time!
Shhhh, don’t tell them, but I found two cakes today in Whole Foods that are just perfect for their birthdays. I thought about baking one but with all the stress of the blog move I decided to head over to Whole Foods and see what they had in their bakery. Check these out!
I think I’ll let this one will be for Nancy…
Don’t you love the side! I think they used turbinado sugar for the sand.
And this one will be for Chip. Chip twisted his ankle badly while running for a shuttle a few days ago. It was so swollen he ended up having to go to the ER to have it x-rayed. Fortunately, it isn’t broken, just badly bruised. Last I heard the swelling had gone down a lot and he was doing better. So the little guy with the slight frowny face will represent that mishap while the guy on the left end is the new improved Chip with the wrapped up ankle. Yes, I know I’m sick. I’m blaming it on my current crazy state of mind, caused by BMSD: Blog Move Stress Disorder.
Here’s the side of Chip’s cake. Aren’t these the cutest cakes! They are only $12.99 each and are pretty big. One cake would easily make 8 huge or 10 normal servings…just right for a small gathering of friends or family.
I snapped a couple of pics with my cell phone while in the store so you could see some of the other cakes.
Okay, I’m off to wander aimlessly in WordPress land, wringing my hands once again. Pray for me.
Pssst: If you didn’t have a chance to read the “Wedding Tales” comments on the last post…go NOW! Oh my gosh! There are about 10 amazing books in those comments. The stuff that can happen at weddings! Wow! Read the comments HERE.
