1 Whole Week Clean From Facebook & Weekend Recap

It's been a week since I quit facebook, and I haven't even logged on to Kyle's page to check for updates.  I am totally glad I dropped it to throw myself into blogging.  Blogger has this neat feature now that lets you the countries of the people reading your blog(s.)  Much to my surprise, not only have I had hits from the U.S., but also Canada, Brazil, Germany, and Iran.  Very cool, but it makes me wonder who exactly is reading and why.  Anyway, I have so much more in my mind to put out here.  So, keep checking.  This is really just the beginning.

The weekend was lovely.  Friday, Kyle and I had our in-house date-night with home-baked hot wings, and frozen quesadillas.  Saturday was actually our "dating anniversary."  I know that most people don't still celebrate that once they are married.  We figure, why not have another reason to celebrate our relationship?  That day marks our 9th year as a couple.  Sunday night was our annual church pool party.  Lots of fun.  Pictures will be posted on my family pics page later.

I'm excited about the week ahead.  My folks are flying in from Cali.  It will be my Dad's first time meeting his only granddaughter.  The boys miss them, too.  Plus, it's always nice to have more babysitters around.  :-)

Max Headroom

I took a picture of an album from my favorite band and my favorite coffee cup to use as my new background for this blog.  The coffee cup shows Max Headroom, an 80s icon that gained notoriety from Coke commercials.  (There was also a music video, movie, and t.v. series for the character.)  He's one of his commercials:

Revamping Begins!

I am in the process of revamping this blog.  If you've been keeping up with this page, I am sure you have noticed the lack of activity for about 6 months.  Well, I am back!  I have dumped my facebook page (I sure did!), and decided to get back into blogging.  I just started 2 new pages as well.  But, this one was my first and will be the place that I can gather my scattered thoughts.  I don't know where this blog is headed, but for now, it has a new look and hopefully the randomness can ensue!  (I apologize for the use of the word "randomness."  I am aware of its overuse, but I couldn't think of anything else that fit.)

So what's the story on my other blogs?  Well one of them contains family pictures and hopefully more things related to my family.  The other one is going to be about my personal experiences as a Christian.  I hope that you guys will check that out with an open, non-judgmental mind, because I am basically pouring out my heart on the web for all to see.  That can be pretty tough.

Anyway, I hope you like the new look.  I took a picture of my favorite coffee mug and a cd from my favorite band (RADIOHEAD) to use as background.  I saw the coffee cup background blogger had, and it just didn't say "Misty."

Here are links to my other blogs:

I also added a spot on each of my blogs that allows you to enter your email address to follow my blogs via email. 

As always, I encourage you to comment, just keep the comments friendly please.  (I moderate all comments before they post.)

That's all for now!
