Little Lucy Lu gets a (minor) makeover ...

Are things lookin' a little different around here today...?
Yep.  Sure enough.
I finally gave up broke down and enlisted some (professional) help.  I felt like I had taken this little beauty about as far as I could on my own ... without pulling out more of my hair while reading through tutorials on "how to install x, y, and z" on your blog.

Have I ever told you I am one of the most technologically-challenged people I know?
True story.
What am I doing with a blog?
I have no idea.
But let's just go with it, anyway, OK?

Meanwhile, back at the ranch ...
thanks to Jacquelinne at Smitten Blog Designs, my blog has some new stuff!
Most importantly -- those "stay connected" buttons up in the right-hand corner.
If you haven't already "liked me" (haha ... that just never stops sounding silly) on Facebook or "followed me" on Twitter, consider this an extra-special invitation to do so! :-)
Oh!  And she also helped me install the button that I made several weeks ago (but couldn't-for-the-life-of-me get installed correctly) on my blog.  So ... if you're just itchin' to have an I Love Little Lucy Lu button decorating your blog -- I wouldn't mind a bit.

And now ... I must admit, I am feeling totally blog-overwhelmed after this past weekend.
Overwhelmed in the BEST way possible, but still - overwhelmed.

That little ladder project o' mine got a bit more attention than I expected!  I feel terrible that I haven't replied to so many of the kind people who took the time to leave me comments -- or to the people who added themselves to my followers list.
It wasn't so scary getting to the first 100 followers because I felt like I could keep up, but now I feel like I don't even know who my readers are, and it makes me feel bad and very ungrateful.

Let me assure you though ... I am SO grateful.
By reading my blog every day (or even every once in a while!), you validate that I am writing something worth reading, and you have no idea how much I appreciate that.

Please keep leaving me comments so that I can come read your blogs and get to know you, too!

Thank you again, for coming along on this adventure with Little Lucy Lu!


  1. Adorable! I am looking for "outside" help with my blog this summer. I will have to check out your blog designer too...have some in mind already. There is just so much html I can understand before I just put my hands up and give in. :)

  2. Your blog makeover is adorable. Still has your original flair! I added a new post yesterday on my blog, you've inspired me to blog more! :)

  3. Oh I need to do this too!! I keep trying to figure out how to do this stuff on my own, but I think I need to go for professional help too!! It looks gorgeous by the way!! I am SO technically challenged I am embarrassed! Yay, I was just wondering if you had a button that I could put on my blog. I think it's nice to advertise for each other! ;) Oh and I'm NOT surprised even a tiny bit that you got that much attention to your ladder project!! That is the COOLEST!

  4. Thanks, gals! Glad you like it ... yep, I kept my header and background ... just had them help me with the navigation bar and sidebar labels. :-) Those two things were just too hard for me to figure out. My new goal is to learn html code -- someday! :)~

  5. Guess what I put your button on my blog. To be honest I am shocked I was able to figure it out!! Yeah, for your awesome blog.


  6. Your blog matches your daughter, both absolutely adorable. :)


Thank you for your comments!
I love EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. :-)
