Change is GOOD

As you can see, I jazzed things up a bit here at TimeOutForMe. I usually do not like to do this because I want y'all to feel at home when you click on my blog-like I do at so many of yours. But, alas, I could not resist this new black and white getup. Thanks to L & T for inspiring me and pointing me in the right direction!

Which leads me to another wind of change. A great pal, and fellow blogger, announced plans to move. It makes me so sad as she is rock that I have come to take for granted. Now that she has announced this, I realize how different life will be without her and her family. BUT thank heavens for blogging! We will still be connected! I support you whole heartedly C family!

E went to her first school dance yesterday. I himmed and hawed about letting her go, but since I work at the school I was assured by my pals that she would be watched closely. AND, at this point in time, I trust her. She has a strong conviction of right and wrong and is a true leader. Okay, okay...it was adorable to drop off her friend and her (they ran screaming to the door = not yet worried about being cool, which I LOVE!) At the dance you could buy a polaroid for $1 so the girls gathered and then decided to ask their sixth grade crush to pose in the picture with them. He is adorable and said, "sure". She talked and talked and talked all night about what fun they had dancing for 1 hour and 50 minutes straight! Wow, I should try to work that in to my daily workout routine.

I guess change is inevitable, so I should learn to just roll with it.

Wow, love the new look. This look is really in right now and it only makes sense that your sporting it. Also, I love that you are reading "Something Blue". I love those books, Emily Giffin is great!
