Happy Friday, February 21st!


Happy Friday!! I’m changing it up, yet again, for this Friday with a new graphic. I don’t know about you but I love any excuse to mess around on Photoshop & Picmonkey. I’m linking up with a few parties this week so welcome any new viewers! Here are five fun things that happen this week…

1. laugh eat

I decided to take everyone’s advice and buy my domain name. I know it’s early on for my blog but I enjoy it so much I didn’t want anyone else to steal my name away! If you are considering buying a website, it’s super easy and affordable. I got two whole years for only $12 through Go Daddy! I also found through some research Zoho Mail which gives you a free email for your website. I had support from my boyfriend for both because I’m not that good with tech language but it was relatively easy. Bottom line, just do it if you are on the fence!

2. New Blog Design!

Like I said above… any excuse to do graphic designs! With making Laugh Eat Learn official, I knew I needed to up my game with my design. Jon thankfully helped me with my header and photoshop. I spent the rest of the week working on all the coding (I knew it would help me!). I love working with HTML and CSS but it sure takes a long time. My eyes were killing by the end but I think it was worth it! 🙂

3. Three Year Celebration!

On Wednesday I celebrated my three year anniversary with Jonathan! A lot of cheesy things were said but regardless I’m so thankful for him. ♥ We went out to one of our favorite restaurants, Bizzarro Italian Cafe to celebrate and had some amazing food.

4. Food Avalanche!!!!

I’ve been meaning to “clean out” my pantry for a while now. Well I was finally forced to do it when I opened the pantry to grab something for dinner and a avalanche happen. I guess things happen for a reason, right? 🙂

5. Weekend Getaway!

I’m outta here as soon as I hit publish and heading up to the beach for the weekend with Jon. We always try to plan a trip to celebrate our birthdays or anniversary or just because! I love myself a road trip or any excuse to get away for a couple days. We have been to this beach before one other time and just love it because it’s such a small town with no one around!

    You have the cutest blog!!! You did an awesome job! I am thinking into getting a name too but I know nothing about the stuff. I also want to step up my html/css game. Did you use Dreamweaver to code?

    The Pantry Avalanche is hilarious. You have soooo much stuff.

    Glad I stopped by your blog.

    Happy Saturday 🙂

      Hi Emerald (I love your name!!)! Thank you for stopping by. 😀 You should totally buy a, it's so cheap and easy! All you have to do is just go to a domain register and register whatever you want, then you can easily change it in blogger. 🙂

      I do have a lot of crap in there, I'm so bad at throwing food out before going to the grocery store so it just piles up until I clean it again! 😛

      Thanks again for stopping by!!!

      Forgot to say! No on dreamweaver. I just use to play around with coding (weird I know) as a teenager on livejournal and it has always stuck. If I'm confused on anything I just google it until I figure it out! 😀
