big sister/little sister and blog design news

So, as I posted last week, Krysten came up with the idea for a blogging Big Sister/Little Sister mentor program and I decided to be a part of the fun! I indicated--while signing up on her blog--that I wouldn't really consider myself a beginner blogger or an expert blogger... but somewhere in between. I have been reading blogs for over two years but I have only been blogging myself for a little over a year. I am not very knowledgeable in HTML or designing my own template but I am learning... and you may have noticed that the sidebar titles have changed a little bit. I did those all by lonesome and I am very proud. I have now decided to figure out how to create my own blog design and I downloaded free photo editing software (I cannot believe how expensive Adobe Photoshop is!)... so we will see how that goes.

Anyway, Krysten e-mailed me and--much to my surprise--said that after she viewed my blog that she thought I should be a mentor to a Little Sister. I was so flattered! And, of course, I accepted her offer and I am actually going to mentor TWO Little Sisters! I am very excited... she has sent me their names and addresses but it is up to me how and when to let them know that I am their mentor. So, I cannot reveal their names/blogs just yet because I purchased a few surprises for them that I am going to mail them to reveal the news. They are adorable and I will be sure to fill you guys in when they have received the gift! Side Note: they are not currently followers of my blog and so I hope they are as pleased as I am!

Lastly, I wanted to let you guys know that if you have a button and it is not yet posted on my page... just shoot me an e-mail and/or comment if you would like me to add it... and I will be more than happy to! I hope you ladies are having a great weekend!
