Overload

First of all, I promise I do not suffer from schizophrenia. Truly. I am just having a lot of fun trying to figure out this blog stuff. And, although I still don't know what I'm doing, it has been a blast playing with different colors and designs. And also very time-consuming, which is the bad part. But anyway, this one is here to stay for...well, for awhile anyway.

This past week has been crazy, with babysitting and girls night out and a visit to the pumpkin patch and our garage door breaking and my doctor telling me he was going to send me to a natural fertility/nurtrition specialist. Yeah. My brain is on a bit of overload right now, so I'm reverting to something that is fun and easy and doesn't require much thinking....

A little bit about me, in pictures, no words. I'm cheating and changing it up a bit from the original.



My age...





Favorite food






Favorite thing to drink





Dream vacation spot







Favorite flowers...hard to narrow it down...






Shoes I covetFavorite colors









What I'm craving right now





Must-have for my hair




My favorite kind of day




If I could purchase anything right now




And what makes me happiest of all





I was going to include something to do with Christmas but I was finding boatloads of fun pictures, so I'm going to save that one for December and do another one of these with nothing but my Christmas faves.


Y'all have a great Monday!

Hi Jackie,

I was sad to see your last blog page go, but this one is good, too. Really nice job, I especially like the pictures you chose up top.

This post in pictures was so much fun!

So, when are you going to do a tutorial "blog pages for dummies"?? :) I could use your advice.

Smilingsal said...

I learned a good bit more about you, you purple thing, you. I like memes like this. I saw some BLUE, and of course thought of Blue Monday. Come see! You could play!

Casey said...

Okay, first of all, you are talented with this blog design stuff. Girl, it looks great!!

Second of all-- I cannot convey to you how much I love me some Bio Silk. It is truly yummy! :)

Tracey said...

Good luck on the fertility front! Been there...done that...God Bless!

sara said...

First of all, I need to know what the bio silk does for our hair!! I am always looking for good hair products for curly hair.

Great design! So do you change up your furniture in your house regularly too? :) I am one of those that finds it and keeps it that way forever!

Good luck with your doctors apt. I have been there too and will be praying for you.

Wendi @ Every Day Miracles said...

Ohhhh! Such a fun post! And seriously?! You did the blog design by yourself?? I seem to remember not so long ago hearing something about you thinking you were not creative and couldn't do it. :) This is amazing! I SO love the color choices!
I love to get a peak into your favorites too. Wasn't it a fun one to do?
Jackie, I was just thinkning about your desire for another baby and praying. For some reason God has really put that request on my heart alot. I wan't going to say any thing, but then you mentioned it, so I thought I would. :)
Have a beautiful day friend!

MoziEsmé said...

Great list - especially with the photos! They make me want them as my favorites, too!

Jenn said...

Jackie, what a beautiful job you did! I still am clueless on how you got the templates. I went to the sight you told me about and can't seem to get it to work for me. So, I just decided to work with the colors and such within the template I have. However, I would love to know how you got the brown polka-dot backgound?!

I will be praying for you and your husband about the desire for another baby. I know this must be hard on both of you. I will pray for God's peace and comfort for you during this time and that He would bless you with another little one to love and treasure.

Happy Fall!

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

Oh, I love this. Guess since I just did a similar one it would be kind of redundant to so this too.

Anyway, I left you a little award over at my blog. Come and see.

mamachristina said...

I love your new look, it is so relaxing. cute blog idea!

Aspiemom said...

Wow, you do such amazing blog looks all by yourself. You should set up a site and do "free templates and doodads" for the rest of us that aren't that talented. I know, more of your time! This one is great, too!

Loved the blog with the pictures! Very fun!

Jodie said...

The Christmas one sounds like fun - I can't wait to see it! Maybe I'll do a Christmas one too.

I loved reading yours. It's a fun way to get to know more about people.

Also, I applaud your bravery (and success) with changing your template. I would have a conniption just thinking about it. :)

Sarah@Life in the Parsonage said...

Great post, Jackie!

And your little girl...even cuter than the red shoes ;)

Sara@ Butterville said...

YEAH! PURPLE! I have to say though I'm loving your new blog colors. OOOH so pretty! DO they make those shoes in flats? I have bunions. And I hope you get a piano because some of us are waiting for that Christmas music CD from you!

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

I love your favorites--we would get along well :)
And those shoes oooohhhhh!

I cannot wait for Christmas favorites because I am all about Christmas :)

Growin' with it! said...

your new look is beeeautiful! love it. and what a fun way to get to know you thru photos. now i'm hungry for pie and ice cream though! sounds good for breakfast.

Colored With Memories said...

i'm totally digging the green and brown!

i used to use biosilk religiously...i loved that stuff...didn't realize they still made it! i'll be on a hunt for it now.

keep us posted about the fertility/nutriton specialist...sorry you are having to go through that...hopefully the lord will grant you the answer you need through this process!

Elena said...

Great idea with the pictures! I really like your new look. Have a great day! Elena

Darcie said...

First of all - I LOVE the new look. Tres chic!

Secondly, um, I knew we had some things in common, but I didn't know just how much. I didn't know mashed potatoes were ANYBODY elses favorite. And 8 days from now, I too, will be 31. And...

I gotta have biosilk.
I totally want to go to Greece.
And blustery days top my list too.

Very cute blogging idea btw!

Tracy's Porch said...

This was a fun post. Very cute. I like this blog layout a lot. How do you do the header so cute???

Genny said...

Lois Lane II said...

Oh, how cool! But now I'm craving apple pie, lol!!

Michelle@Life with Three said...

I love the new design -- the green and brown together looks great. Lilacs are one of my most favorite flowers too, but I never see lilacs down south. I wonder if it's just a northern thing...

Beachy Mimi said...

I loved this idea! Great post.

SarahHub said...

I love your new design. I have to learn how to do this kind of thing. You really impress me!

Gretchen said...

Darling page. Um...this pictorial list does it: you need to move to Seattle. If you like misty moisty mornings where cloudy is the weather: look.no.farther.! :)

Chel's Leaving a Legacy said...

WOW girl! I love this new page! Your last one was beautiful, too, and I almost want to say you didn't have it long enough...except that I love this one so much! Great job! I'm with Lisa...I would love a tutorial! I can't BEGIN to imagine how you do this! WOW!! :-)

I love the pictures you posted. And I love red, too.

And is your dream vacation somewhere in the Mediterranian? Cuz that would be something else we have in common! I want to spend some serious time there someday. I have an idea! Let's have like a blogging convention there some day!

Becky said...

This was fun too! Nice to know things about you.
Prayin as you seek where to go with growing your family!

mamajil said...

Rachel said...

I opened your page today and said, "oooh!" I love the new layout. I am a sucker for anything brown right now!
Your picture post was adorable! A great Meme! I may steal it from you in the week to come! :)

Amanda said...

jennifer@love,laughter,and lyrics said...

You are so good! Look at your fun design! I'm super-impressed. I love the pictures at the top. Precious.

Praying, praying, praying for you my sweet friend.

Wendy said...

I like the new look! (It feels like a while since I've been by...)

I like picture posts; I thought about doing one of these once. Yours was fun! I think you've inspired me to do one. Although I can spend way too much time browsing for them...

Sorry you've had such a crazy week!

Alana said...

Very fun post! And girl, you know I am with you on the mashed potatoes and gravy ;-)
