Friday Fabulous! (2)

Exciting stuff that happened this past week:

1. Daniel finally designed a new header for my blog. What do you think about it? I also updated the color scheme, changed the font and added quick links so you can get to the good stuff faster. All in the name of blog improvement.

2. On Sunday, a professional ice skater Daniel met at yoga got us free tickets to Holiday on Ice. It was gloriously cheesy fun (the poor male skaters had to wear overalls decorated with white chicken feathers at one point). Afterwards, we took Mitch to a traditional appelwoi kneipe (Frankurt restaurant/bar) and drank a bembel. Very amusing!

3. I actually got a couple of books in my mailbox: Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen, Lipstick Apology by Jennifer Jabaley and Starfinder by John Marco.

4. LOST is back! And a new episode of BSG is on tonight.

5. The weather warmed up enough that we are able to venture outside again.

6. We've been invited to a wedding in Morocco. One of the guys in Daniel's stick fighting club is tying the knot in July. Apparently it will be a three day affair of feasting and dancing.

What's new with you?

I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of Along For The Ride. If it's Dessen, it's got to be good, right? :P

Your makeover totally threw me off because I came here from Google on a search for your review of Fly Girl (How on earth did I miss it the first time around? I think my Reader hiccupped) and I thought I was on the wrong blog! I like it, though!

I am a huge figure-skating fan, Lenore! You will have to tell me how Holiday on Ice is! Who is the professional skater that Daniel met?

I love your new header by the way, Daniel did good :)

So i do love the new header! I've been struggling with my entire layout, it just doesn't ever seem to look the way I want it.
