How Do You Like Me NOW?

When I was pregnant with Drew, like, REALLY pregnant and nearing the end, I had pretty much run out of things to wear.  One Sunday as I quickly eliminated one option after another, I finally ran across a pink number that I hadn't previously resorted to.  A stunt double for the county fair's canopy that draped over the pig exhibit, it was classed up with mother of pearl buttons and a label of "100% silk".  It wasn't pretty, but feeling frustrated and out of time, I exited the closet and asked Cory, "How does this look?"

His eyes darted left and right, no doubt in search of a machete to thrust his body upon to create a distraction, but finally met my gaze and shrugged.  "Seriously," I said, "tell me the truth.  I can take it."  "Well..." he stammered, "I mean...it looks BIG I guess."  I threw him out of the room and started to cry.  Poor guy never stood a chance. 

See, I didn't really want his opinion, I actually just wanted him to tell me I looked great, even if it was a lie.

Which brings me to my new blog header.  I would ask you what you think of it, but I don't really want to know.  All I really want to hear is, "Wow, I love that!  Who did it for you?"  And I would say, "Aly did!" and you'd ask, "How can I get me some of that?" and I'd say, "GO HERE."  Aly makes more food than she does blog headers, which is why I like her so much. It's one thing to be able to put fonts, colors and shapes together, but when you can also whip up a Peanut Butter Brownie Pie?  It's called, Are You Sure We Weren't Separated At Birth?

I thought it was cute even before you asked. So, therefore, ergo, by deduction I vote that you are stylin'.

Hey I like the headlights.

I love it more than peanut butter brownie pie...okay, that's a lie, but only because I think I would really, really, really, really, really, really, really like peanut butter brownie pie.

Otherwise I would totally like it better.

It looks AWESOMELY AMAZING.

Uh, you're awesome and so kind. Thanks! And just for the record, I like your header...if that counts for anything.

If I don't leave a comment, you'll think I don't like the new look, right? So, like, that means I have to comment, right?

For the record, I liked it even BEFORE you asked. So I guess I should have said something before you asked. So I'd be believable.

I love it! I think you should have a Halloween addition with the car running over the rabbit.

Way to rock it! BUT I do wish your head were sticking out the side window waving profusely at me- that would make the header epic, in my opinion. ;)
