Your Creative Timeout Party {No.56}

Well…whatcha think???

These are my new digs and I’m starting to feel at home…finally!

There are a few small kinks that I am still working out but I am over-the-moon excited and happy to be on WordPress and I am discovering new features every day that are making my life easier.  I am totally behind on everything because this little move was spontaneous and although I am feeling the affects of  tending to nothing but my WordPress transfer I am still happy I made the plunge.

We leave on Sunday for Disneyland!

So excited to be there when it’s all decked out for Christmas!  I’m pretty sure Cars Land is going to be super awesome and my hubby {who is a hard-core Disney fan} has been researching all the cool decorations the geniuses at Disney have dreamed up for Cars Land.  I’ll be sharing lots of pics when I return!

So despite being neck deep in WordPress woes this past week, I did manage to share a few things :)

I also posted a giveaway for a brand spanking new company, Dot & Eva’s Oven.  They’re going to be giving one lucky reader a 3.5 lb Gourmet Cranberry Pecan Fruit Cake.  I can attest to that fact that this fruit cake is AMAZING!  I’d love for you to enter…and win!

  20. Love the new look! I know I need to switch to WP but I just hate the idea of having to learn something new. Have a wonderful time at Disney and a Happy Thanksgiving!

    • I can totally relate! When I first got in to WP I was like “What the…????” I had no idea what to do or anything. So different from Blogger! Dorothy held my hand and kept me off the ledge for the most part :) Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

  21. I love your new look, it looks great!

    Thanks so much for hosting!

  25. You are going to LOVE Cars Land. We were there Halloween week, and it was so, so cool! It’s like being in the movie. Be sure to check out Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree. We rode that one several times. So much fun!

    • We went in August and it was SOOOO crowded. We’re hoping that we’ll have a more enjoyable time with the cooler weather and I can’t wait to see it decorated for Christmas! I think I’m more excited than my boys!

  26. Love your new site, of course! And, so jealous of your DL trip coming up…I wish we were headed to WDW over the holidays. Enjoy, and have a magical time!
