Welcome

Wow. Is it ever good to be back in the blogosphere!!
Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed the three month break hanging and spending my evenings watching the Bachelor (go emily!!!), but eventually that stuff gets a little old (the show ended) and a girl has to start writing again. :)
So here I am!!! Woo-hoo!
I have a lot to catch up on...Sonny's new calling, The Rockstar starting Primary, Lulu's special date night, Gigi's first steps, and me finishing all 6 blog books (you heard me right...6!!) from our previous family blog.
Find some blurb coupons here btw.
Life has been pretty darn busy and I will be sure to cram it all in thru the next week or so, but for starters let me just say...
Welcome to...

The Bubblegum Chronicles!!

Whatcha think?? a little corny, cheesy, weird,....darling!!!??
That's okay, because I'm pretty sure I could use all those words to describe this suuweet little family of mine.
Just for my own journaling purposes, I'll explain what lead to the new look...
Rewind. 6 months ago. I was battling with going private for our family blog and I discovered that a private blog is super easy to break into...kind of defeating the purpose of going private. right? I started wishing I had set up the blog without so much personal information (real names), so in my spare time (when I'm not cross stitching) I daydreamed about fun little new blog ideas and pressed forward with making the old one private.
I didn't think I would ever really change over, but then one day, I was at my computer and my kids started the daily begging for a gumball out of the jar that sits above my computer (we're all addicted to the little chews), and it hit me...What if we were each named after a different flavor of bubble gum?...What if I titled it The Bubblegum Chronicles?...What if my 15 month old actually started sleeping through the night if I called her something like Bubbles!!?? 
(Okay. I'm getting a little crazy.)
I don't know I just liked it.
So here we are.
I'm so excited to catch up with you all. I know I've missed out on so much!

I hope you enjoy reading about our lovely giggly tales...
and I'll be sure to include all the sticky ones too. Promise.
XOXO
Kit

I think it is super cute. I love it! I am going back and forth with the whole private blog thing, we'll see. BTW I am a total bachelor fan too. It is my guilty pleasure show :)

That weird I was just thinking about you guys this morning and that I haven't looked at your blog in a while. Glad you have this fun blog. Can't wait to catch up. Also, will you let me in on a secret. How do you make the blog go across the entire page. I've been trying to figure this out and have been unsuccessful. Anyway, glad you guys are doing well. I love bubblegum!

Erin said...

Jodi said...

Ahhhhhhh!!!! I love it!!!!! I am so excited you are back :)! I might be following suit {don't worry, I will come up with my own cheesy name ;)} because I LOVE blogging, but it does freak me out a little bit! By the way, what programs do you use to get such cute graphics/design on your blog? I need serious help with that. Glad you are back!

Just out of morbid curiousity, how does one break into a private blog? I tried on a friends to see if it was doable because I worried about mine and for the life of me, I certainly couldn't figure it out!! I tried googling it and everything. I hate being private and if I knew someone really could still hack it I'd go public and just change our names in a heartbeat!
