Surprise!! | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Surprise!!

Because every blog post needs a picture.


Well well well, another blog change, Candace? Will you ever make up your mind?

NO. :) 

I just won't. I can't ever stop changing my blog design. I did like my other design but I never LOVED it. Like, I felt like it was soooo crowded and just so much info all smushed together and I kept wanting to change it to something simpler but I just didn't' know how I would do it! So I kept it and made little changes and was still not 100% satisfied. Finally I found one that I loved and I like how it's simple and I'm just so excited! Also, take note to that "random rant" tab on the side. I guess I used to write a lot of those because it links to a bunch of old random rant posts from like 2012 and older haha I was looking though them and I was so weird and would just say anything!!

Me: Jason look!! 
*points to blog*
J: ... it's different?
C: Yeah, like 100% different!
J: yeah like, there's more black up there now.

Safe to say he totally loves my new design.

This isn't sponsored and I wasn't given this template for free so you know I'm being like even more real than normal real (it's possible) Lauryn from Adoration Studios is literally amazing and you need to use her for your blog NOW!! She is the best ever and I had like a billion questions and apologized a billion times each time I asked one and she was so patient and kind and everything good about a person! She announced her templates were all on sale till January for $10 so I couldn't not get one any longer. I literally would visit her etsy shop weekly to look at her templates and drool and stuff and the sale was the hook and sink for me haha so you're welcome for that little heads up! :)

In other news, I have a boutique starting TOMORROW and set up is TONIGHT and what am I doing instead of preparing?! BLOGGING! Go me. So yeah I just needed a break for a sec and I wanted to blog (obviously) 

Thank you guys for watching my vlog on Monday and not laughing in my face about it haha I really liked doing it and want to do more on a normal basis (normal being like maybe once a month...or twice I dunno!) What do you think? I've been watching vlogs lately while I make signs and I really think they're really interesting and cool to learn about someone and see their personality, ya know? Plus I think it will be fun to just look back at these "home videos" and just remember the random things we did and how we interact and do things together :)

  Anyways though, happy Wednesday!!

  8. Love your new design!!!!! Boys are so observant, right??? Although, since my dude is all about IT/design/etc....he would notice a difference in my blog design over a new outfit or my hair hahaha.

  11. LOVE the look! it's very simplistic and elegant in a way. I got a new blog design in july, annnnnd then just got another new one last week. i felt the same was as you, as much as i liked my other design, i just felt like it wasn't completely "me" and that it was missing something. I was hesitant to change it because i just had changed it, but I'm so glad i did!! Also, i'm sure everyone else is looking at that adorable pic of you and your husband and i'm all like, "omg look at that amazing looking cake!" lol

  15. I'm totally into simple and uncluttered too. This is great! But all I could think of was that ginormous piece of cake you guys were sharing in the picture. NOM.

  16. You're going to laugh at me, but I totally thought this was a pregnancy announcement post when I saw the title. Clearly that's the life stage I live in because it seems like every other day someone is announcing they are pregnant. ;) However, this surprise is super great too! I love the simple layout! I need to update my blog again... it's just probably not going to happen until after busy season with photography slows down. Maybe in January! :)

    1. hahah no I actually got a text from someone who thought the same thing at first!! I realize the title and top picture totally made it seem like a baby announcement or something. But for reals, everyone is pregnant and so you never know who will be announcing next (you?!?!) haha

  17. Such a struggle to be a designer.. I don't think I'll ever be completely happy with my blog design but I can't justify spending a million hours tweaking it every day when I have a ton of websites I'm getting paid to work on ha. Love this though!

    1. Seriously, it is so hard to just stick with something cause design trends change every single day!! That's why I decided to just buy a template this time instead of make it myself. Much easier haha and such a good deal. That's awesome you're so busy designing!

  20. Very nice! Keep putting out this awesome content and I'll keep reading, no matter how many times you change the layout! I too am preparing to take the plunge into vlogging, finally! I'm glad you enjoyed it and hope that everything goes well with the boutique. Candace's rock!
