It's so nice to have a real life friend who is a real life blogger.  Like, SO nice.  As Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman), one of my heroines, said at BlogHer '13:  "Your family [and friends] might support you blogging and they might be excited about your blogging, but they don't understand blogging."  They're not behind the scenes and all around it as I am.  Jenna and her family recently started coming to my parish, and it's been lovely knowing their existence outside of blogland.  We have been trying to meet for brunch after Mass, but our schedules haven't worked out so far.  Soon.
Speaking of P-Dub and other bloggers, I recently stumbled upon a hate blog against the Pioneer Woman, and I think a few spaces in my mind actually exploded.  I can understand one person not liking or disagreeing with another, but I simply cannot fathom how someone could devote so much time and effort into tearing another person apart.  Just.don't. get it.
I've been pondering having my blog re-designed by a professional, and since I'm... well... poor and in college, I have to put that off for a while.  I would, however, like to suggest a lovely woman to any of you out there who may be considering the same.  Her name is Lauren; she works with Santa Clara Design, and was very amicable in our discussions on the topic.  Go look her up.  (Actually, just click that.)
I've been considered switching up Simple Saturday a little bit, and maybe even taking a break for the school year.  Methinks I'll try it out for the month of September, and if it gets to be to much, thereby defeating the purpose, I might just keep it going on the Book of Face.

Just for kicks, I made a cover of Sweet Annie by the Zac Brown Band.  I sang over the track a few times to add a little harmony.  I know it's not perfect and my voice isn't that great, and I think I may have forgotten a verse... but I had fun.  Enjoy!

  1. You have a BEAUTIFUL voice!! Great cover.

  2. You could always trying finding a computer/graphic design student at your school. The could probably whip up a new web design for you for free or for very cheap. =)

    1. That is true! Thanks for the idea! I don't know if you're familiar with The Pioneer Woman, but I'm looking to model my site after hers, so I'm not sure if they could have me covered, but I'll definitely look into it! :)

  3. There... is a hate-blog... against Pioneer Woman? *brain implodes* It can't be!!! And you have a lovely voice. :)

  4. SERIOUSLY! She's fantastic!! But oh well.... their loss, eh?

    Thanks ;)

  5. Wow, you sound gorgeous! Your harmonies are just lovely. God bless you! ♥

  6. Oh, and P.S.!! I'd be cool with Simple Saturday going on FB. It's fine on the blog as well, of course, but sometimes my slow interest connection gets snooty and doesn't want to interact with Mister Linky. lol. It seems to get along well with FB, though.

    God bless! ♥


Comments from my readers are like my little dose of sunshine, and they make me feel like a kid on Christmas morning.... Beautiful & Exciting. But please remember that "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." ;)
