42,000 hits. A Diny. And more.

First of all, y'all who make their beds every day...seriously. You make all us slackers look soooo bad!! (50 percent of you said you make your bed every day on my poll. Gag.) I only make fun because I am seriously jealous. I tried to do this for about three days straight...and was way too lazy to keep it going. I love how I feel when I walk in our bedroom and the bed is made though. You may have inspired me. (Not really, just saying that.)


Also, I have to give out a big Whoot Whoot to all you who have checked out my blog in the past month. I went from 2,000 hits to 44 thousand plus hits in just the month of October. I know, hits don't really tell you much about how many visits you really have, blah blah blah, but I'm happy, OK? I love hits and I love comments!! Yay!! I have to give a shout out to all my friends who got me to 2,000 -- Jenny, AnNicole, Cheryl, the BC girls, the Rocks ladies, and all my girlfriends who supported me from the start. Love you.


Beware if you see this tonight:



It's a ferocious Diny -- a Triceratops to be exact. Thing is, this Diny doesn't like to wear his head, which is the best part of the costume. Really. But we trick-or-treated around Daddy's school today and he at least wore most of it. And he won't take a nap today, which is going to make for a real fun night. Roar.



OK, my next poll is about the music thingys people put on their blogs. I have a love/hate relationship with these. Love them because I love to hear what music people listen to. Hate them because I'll forget to turn my sound down and will wake sleeping Hubby or scare the beejeebies out of the cats. You tell me if you want it on here. I don't care either way. Just so you know, I swear, promise, cross my heart, assure you that I won't play all NKOTB music on mine. (I'm totally lying.)



OH, and
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Have fun with your goblins!!



P.S. It's ON tomorrow ladies...get to the Christmasy crafting!!

P.S.S.S.S. I got my necklace from Glitter and Bliss yesterday and it is GORG! Go check her out!

  4. Congrats on the boost in readers (I'm still on 1 comment over at my new blog- lol).

    I think you -should- go ahead and add a music player. I'm one of those people who has it turned on automatically but with mine you pretty much have to scroll to the end of the page before it starts. There is an option to turn off the little auto-start feature though. You could try that.

    Looking forward to the x-mas fun. ^^- SR

  5. Hi! I'm pretty sure your hits are up because of me. I love your blog and am totally inspired. By the way, I HATE THE MUSIC! It scares me every time. Keep up the good work!

  6. One- SUCH cute costume! Two- wow, that's so many hits. Did mine get 40 (not thousand, 40) yet? Ever? Ha.

    As long as the "auto start" feature is turned off I think music is ok. I just hate being in the best part of a song I'm listening to and suddenly hearing a song and having to look through 10 tabs to see who has a player :)

  7. Happy Halloween! Cute little dinosaur!

    I personally don't care about the music because I keep my volume on mute all the time because I cannot read and listen to music at the same time. :)

  8. Oh, I like your dinosaur costume too! We had a dinosaur this year also. I really enjoy your website and all of your ideas - thanks for sharing!

  9. Your post made me laugh today, as usual. That Diny looks super ferocious. Ha Ha! Tell me how to get that many hits on my blog??? Way to go! Personally I don't like when people have music on their blogs, because a lot of the time I'm trying to nurse a baby to sleep and the music blasts the baby awake. I seriously want to curse, but don't. Plus, I can't read and listen to music at the same time. I'm not that talented.

  10. I make my bed everyday!

    I adore your little dinosaur. . .

    and I don't really like music on the blogs. I always scan blogs with my sound on mute because of this.

    Blessings,

    Sher

  14. I didn't grow up making my bed but my hubs did. When we first were married he made it every morning while I watched. :) After awhile it grew on me to walk into the room seeing the bed made. It just makes the whole room look neater! Now I make it up every day. Haven't taught my 3 year old too yet though because I am too lazy to make it up in the morning for her to just crawl back in for her nap!

    Just found your blog the other day and am enjoying it!

  15. Wow, that's wonderful! I just found you myself. What increased your blog traffic? Thanks!

  16. I voted no on the music. It's the autostart I find annoying. However, if It only played when clicked...that would be fine.

    You have a great blog and I really love your decorating ideas!

  17. So glad I found this blog, and happy your readership has increased!

    I never make my bed... ever. only if company is coming or I am changing the sheets. What's the point? LOL.

  18. Who says that misery is the only one that loves company? Laziness does too and I never make my bed. Eek. I said it out loud. Well, not out loud but you get it. And Diny was sooooooo precious. Hope he's doing better!

  22. The little diny is sooooo cute. What a doll!!! I enjoy listening to "elevator music" while I read blogs. Weird I know.. I actually have elevator music going now. I will definitely have some Christmas tunes going on my blog. You just have to. :) I'm so glad you like your necklace!!! Thanks for mentioning me on your blog.
