A new look!

Hi everyone!  So sorry about the lack of posting this week!  Forget the face lift.  We went for the full body makeover!  :)  Which ended up being a bit time consuming.  You all know that I love to make my own blog headers.  And I love to switch them out with the seasons.  (You can see past headers and how I make them here.)  You also know that things are so busy for me right now that I don’t have much time for making my blog headers and switching them out with the seasons.  But I was getting tired of the Easter Eggs.  They just seemed so… Easter.  :)  So I called my darling friend Haylee who is an amazing graphic designer and enlisted some help.

This picture was taken this last 4th of July with Haylee and her cute sisters (and kids).  These girls feel like my sisters too.  Our families have been close friends forever and I love them!  They are all so beautiful and talented and FUN.  One of my favorite things about visiting my hometown is getting together with these girls.  I told Haylee my plan for the blog – yellow and blue and sunny and happy.  :)  Then I sent her the pictures and she went to work.  She did an amazing job putting it all together.  Then we spent the past few nights staying up way too late getting everything uploaded and working just right and now YEA!  A new look for Sunny Side Up!   

And a button!  Can you believe that I’ve been blogging for almost four years and have never had a button?  I’m dedicating this button to my blog friend Katrina who kept asking me over and over if I was going to make one and then finally gave up and made one herself to put on her blog.  HA!  Now that’s a loyal reader.  :)  Katrina – this button is for you!  And for anyone else who wants it.  :)  (code is on the sidebar)

I’ve also decided to join the party (albeit a bit late) and get a Facebook page for my blog.  I’ve told you all before that I don’t tweet and I’m never on my personal Facebook page.  I’m rarely on my computer during the day (aside from monitor/answering emails) and the blog takes up most of my computer time at night.  But I’ve had many requests for additional ways to follow this blog so I set up a Facebook page to make it easier for those of you who prefer to follow blogs this way.  I don’t know how often I’ll be posting on Facebook.  My plan isn’t to pop in every 20 minutes and bore you with what I’m eating for lunch.  Because if you’ve read this blog for 5 minutes you already know that I’m eating a turkey sandwich.  But I do promise to always update my Facebook page when I publish a new post.  And I may include an occasional picture of what I’m up to – kids, projects, shopping, new house stuff.  The everyday.  Ok.  Maybe I’ll be boring you with pics of my turkey sandwich after all.  :)

Didn’t Haylee do a great job with the Facebook header too!?  Love it.  And I would love for you to “like me.”  But only if you want to.  I asked Kenny if he would “like me” last night when the page was up and running and he said he’d have to think about it.  So you can think about it too.  But in the end I hope you do.  :)  You can find my new Facebook page here

Haylee – I can’t thank you enough for giving my blog a new look!  And we finished just in time for you to start working on my Christmas cards for this year!  ;)  (Haylee has designed my cards for the past two years.  Once Kole came along I was done making them myself.  No explanation needed.)  

2011 Christmas Card:

Kole was such a pill last year!  Cried the whole photoshoot.  Remember this post?  :)  
2010 Christmas Card:

Haylee is amazing and does such a beautiful job.  You can check out her fun website Hey Hay Designs if you are interested in having her make your holiday cards this year.   As soon as she is finished making mine.  :)

{Thanks again Haylee!}

SO happy to have a new permanent look for my blog!  Now I can focus on the posts.  And new house stuff.  I made lots of decisions this week!   Kenny called Tuesday afternoon to see how my morning had been and I informed him that we were upgrading our toilet seats.  Who thinks about toilet seats?? Someone who is purchasing multiple toilets, that’s who.  Always a good time around here.  :)  
Enjoy your weekend everyone!  

xoxo, Erin

  1. it looks great!! so fresh and clean :) And yay for toilet seats! ps I have been reading your post on sleeping through the night, it has helped me tremendously. Oh the things I wish I would’ve known at the newborn stage!!

  2. Thanks so much Kristina! I’m so glad my baby boot camp post is helping you! Makes such a difference when you get the sleep you need. Which I never do because I’m up on this blog too late! Might as well have a newborn. Ha! :)

  3. Pretty! I like it a lot. And YAY! for a Facebook page.

    Also, I love hearing the details of your house. You are right, never would occur to me that toilet seats should be upgraded :P

  4. It looks so great!! And I can see the words now. For some reason I couldn’t see the words on your previous one unless I was using Butch’s computer.

  5. BEautiful. Funny – Steve thinks of toilet seats as well! Our little place in St. George that was his request for upgrades – it was pretty funny. Now I can understand your mansion but our little condo!

  6. Looks awesome, exciting!! :) And I just read some of these comments and they made me laugh out loud – I don’t even think we have that kind of toilet seat here, but maybe I just haven’t looked deeply enough into toilet seat shopping yet?! :)

  7. Hi, Erin! I’ve been following your blog since your sweet Kole was born. I always look forward to a new post. LOVE your new look! I’ve never met you, but it just seems so YOU! Have a great week! :)
