Happy Monday, everyone. If you're reading this from some kind of a blog reader, click on over to the real thing so you can check out my new, improved site. It's got a lot of tabs, and most of them are still under construction (and are scheduled to be for the next five to seven years), but you'll get the idea.
I know it's a million times better than my old blog look, but to be super honest with you, I'm having a really hard time getting used to it. Aside from a few of the kinks that still need ironing-out (screw you link and title color!!!), it's just...well...different. And I don't do well with change. That's why I couldn't part with the very outdated Mardi Gras picture up in the corner. It's also the reason I've stayed with Jared for all these years.
But I like my new header--especially the baby hanging on the clothespin. And guess what? I made it myself. Actually, I made the whole new site myself--so if it crashes your computer, or blinds you with ugliness, or reaches out and slaps you, you have no one to blame but me.
In other exciting news, I unveiled my new [other] blog on Friday. If you haven't seen it yet, you can check it out here. It's called The Lawsons Eat Local, and it's all about our adventures as members of a CSA. If I had to sum it up in five words I'd say: Lots of pictures of vegetables.
It might seem seriously boring at the beginning, but hang with it, those food blogs are strangely addictive. Somehow, knowing the ins and outs of what someone eats is very private, very intimate. Actually, it's second only to having sex--and just to set the record straight, if I ever decide to do that, it'll be with my husband.
So check it out, and if you're feeling really wild, you can follow it. C'mon, everybody's doing it! Well that's not true, thirty people are doing it--but if you hurry you can be the thirty-first, and that's a huge deal.
I'll be back later today to tell you all about the chemical burn on my upper lip. Honestly, why aren't mustaches socially acceptable on ladies? If I'm ever elected to public office, I plan to make that my first order of business.
