A change of scenery

After seeing my friend Sherri's new blog look, I decided to change mine as well. A while ago I attempted to switch over to wordpress but I couldn't figure that out at all. Thanks Sherri for sending me the directions of how to update the look of my blog. I couldn't have figured it out without you. I am very technologically challenged!

Our Mexican night was last night and we had a blast. We had tons of different mexican dishes including appetizers, main courses and off course desserts. The dessert was called a three milk cake. It was less than an inch thick and it was floating in a sea of milk. The guy who made it said that it was just lots of eggs, flour and milk, but it sure was good. It was definitely something you wouldn't see around here! I made chicken quesadillas but everyone else was way more adventerous and made things that were out of the ordinary so tasting everything was really fun. Sid tagged along with us and we didn't get home until 2 this morning. Sid is just getting out of bed now and it's just after lunch! He's a real sleepy head.

I bought a new swimsuit yesterday at Costco. They had Speedo swimsuits for just$20 so I just had to buy one. The worst thing about Costco is that there is nowhere to try on clothes so you have to bring it home. I tried on the suit at home and it wasn't very flattering so I may have to bring it back and try another style. Hopefully that will make a difference!

Sounds like your Mexican night was a blast.
Your blog looks great. Change is nice every now and then. If I learn any more new trick I'll be sure to pass them on.

Have a great week.

I like the new look!! I wish I could do more with Wordpress. Somedays I don't like it and am tempted to switch back to blogger. But I don't have the energy to do it :)

Glad your Mexican night was fun! It sounds delicious!!

Sounds like a fun night out, I don't think I could even stay away until 2am anymore. I'm getting old I guess. I like your new look.

I like the spiffy new look! I absolutely LOVE tres leches, the three milk cake. I managed to convince my husband to do pastel de tres leches dessert runs with me when we were in Mexico last, and have been known to buy slices every so often from the store down the street. a guilty guilty pleasure :-)

I check everyone's blogs from my phone on a daily basis, but it's not always easy to leave comments using my phone. Anyway, I'm finally using the laptop and wanted to drop by to say I love how your blog looks! That's one thing I miss about Blogger - being able to customize the theme.

I am sure your mexican themed night was fun! I love theme parties.

I think your new blog look is great! I have thought about updating ours as well, but like you mentioned, I am technically chanllenged. I am also trying to figure out how to scrapbook digitally so I really don't need another computer project.

I hate shopping for swimsuits. I bought one last year and I think I tried on at least 10 different ones before finding one that I liked. It is crazy how they all fit so different. I don't think that swimsuit designers really keep J-Lo in mind when desigining their suits. The bottoms sometimes are soooo teeny...or maybe I just have any extra large booty. :)
