Not sure about this Template, and I don't get Wordpress

Posted by Liz on Tuesday, August 18, 2009 , under | comments (4)




I am kind of ready for a change on my blog, but not sure how it will work out.  I would really like to be able to do a better job as far as templates, and HTML, CSS etc.  But hey, I am slowly learning!

I will no longer be posting here, at least for now, I am trying to post everything here, on my review blog, including personal posts, reviews, and giveaways. THANKS!!

Finally completed my transition!

I finally exported all of my blog posts from here, and sent them to my "Review" blog, and became self-hosted. So head over to my site, where I will be posting not only reviews and giveaways, but also including photos, stories, and anecdotes as well. Hopefully it will be a well-rounded mix! Thanks for reading, and please make sure to head over to: http://www.lizzydearslife.com!

To Slang or not to Slang, that is the Question.

First of all, I hope to not offend anyone by this post, but this topic is on my mind, and I want to get it out! And a little disclaimer here-I am a Christian, and I am a Pastor's wife, but I am not perfect. So, here goes:


I guess you could call me a troublemaker, or a bad apple, or even a black sheep. I just seem to have this knack for stirring up some sort of conflict, (mostly just within my family, not necessarily out in public) wherever I go.


Well, yesterday I got into a bit of a disagreement discussion with my Mother-in-Law over a choice word that I seem to utilize quite regularly in my vocabulary. The key word is "freaking" or "freakin" i.e. "Are you freakin' kidding?" or "I am freaking mad" etc. So you basically get the point, I'm not exactly dropping the f-bomb here, but I can understand how the word could be a little offensive to some. I am not a prude to words, I can take 'em as they come, of course I don't like to expose my kids to profanity, and I definitely don't want to hear any of them cursing like a sailor, but dangit, I enjoy my slang talk!


I have come to the conclusion that I must refrain from using my "slang" vocabulary in public, and keep my potty mouth for behind closed doors only. I'm just curious if I'm the only naughty one who talks like this? And by the way, the word "fart" is used loosely in my daily vocab (I am the Mom of 3 boys, for crying out loud)!

Working on Winning a GPS

My husband and I are always arguing about directions, and finding places out of town. I think the answer to this problem, or at least a help a little! I have entered to win a Motorola GPS from Mom Central, and really hope to win! It would make an excellent Mother's Day Present.
