Blog stuff


Welcome to my new and improved blog today friends. Did you notice a theme?






Yep. Mustaches!!!!!


If you've been reading a while, you would know that my husband, Jon and I love mustaches. And no, we don't love them because they are "in" right now. We didn't jump on the mustache bandwagon...we STARTED the mustache fad. Ever since I met Jon a few years ago, he has been obsessed with mustaches. Jon can spot an awesome mustache in a crowd of a million people. Sunday night he was all about finding mustaches while watching football. I don't know what it is but we've always been mustache spotters/lovers. And this winter, Jon had the opportunity to sport his own set of mustaches..


I love that people will see mustache stuff out and about or on Pinterest and send it to me. Jon and I seem to be collecting stache items...we are thinking we need a mustache themed room in our new house. 


So I hope you like the new layout! I've been wanting to make things more simple and as much as I loved my chevron thing, I like how sleek my blog looks. I also kinda started freaking out that I wouldn't have access to Picnik in 3 months so I thought, what the heck, time for a change. Do y'all think this new Google+ picture editor will be as good as Picnik? Tear...

Do you guys have other awesome photo editing sites? I have Photoshop and I like it for some things but Picnik was just so darn easy!!!!!

So in other blog news...I have reached capacity on how many photos I can upload to my blog. I am really confused by this because I was able to upload photos to this post and I even did a test post yesterday (if you were wondering why I posted twice yesterday, I didn't really mean too). Where I found the issue was uploading to my blog design, specifically my header. Over the past couple of months I've been moving all of my blog content to HTML vs. uploaded pictures so that didn't really matter. Has anyone else run into this over capacity problem with Picasa? I never upload anything to Picasa but every picture on my blog is automatically stored there.

In other blog-ish news, if you haven't already, peeps, you need to make the French fried onion spaghetti bake I posted on Saturday. Allison from Austin Moms Blog posted this on my Facebook wall last night...



I realize my posts of late have been a mish mosh of random things...hope you are enjoying them :-)

I ran into the same problem with Picasa and now I upload all my blog pictures to photobucket first, then copy the URL onto my blog to get the pictures in my post, it's really easy plus you can make your pictures bigger and they show up more clear

Elle said...

Jon's mustaches crack me up!!! Lol. Love the new design!

Abbey said...

Love the new look! I am at a loss as far as what to do for photo editing come April. Boo! :(

Faith said...

Love the layout ... too cute! I like how you both like mustaches, hehe.

I hope that I don't run into the same problem ... all my photos get stored into Picassa too ...

Love the new blog design!! And that is so crazy that you reached max capacity of pictures. oh, blogger.

I ran into the same problem with Picasa. It took me 4 years to reach the 1G capacity, so I went ahead and paid the $5.00/yr for the extra 20G storage. I figure $5.00 to never have to worry about it again is not too bad a deal!

My sister sent me a link to a blog that listed 9 free alternatives to Picnik. I'm slowly working through them to figure out which one will work best for me.

Here's the link:

I am loving the mustache theme :) You are too cute!

Carolyn said...

Love the new look! I'm so confused as to why adding Google+ won't work for you!!! It worked for me instantly. :( I'm sorry!

As for the picture editing... I like pixlr.com. It's kind of like photoshop but it's pretty simple.

Well now I need to try this spaghetti, and I LOVE THE NEW LOOK! Awesome job friend!

Kelly-Marie said...

KRISTIN said...

So cute! I love the new look! You love mustaches like I love bees...people send me bee stuff all.the.time. and I love it!

Courtney said...

I'm lovin' the new look! I can't say I've had any over capacity problems yet but if you figure something out let me know cause I'm guessing it'll happen to me and probably others as our blogs grow...

Love you girl!

man you and john are so cute together!! my husband and i definitely have a long running mustache joke too. i think it started wen i bought a new purse and he noticed and i put the handles between my lips and nose to create a mustache and asked if i could keep the purse, hehe. love the new look ruthie!

Hollie Ann said...

i love the new blog style!! it is so you....and yeah your man is real serious about the mustache...i've taken notice!

amy said...

Love the mustaches!!!

I think Picasa is through Google/Gmail and so is Blogger. So I think they are automatically linked up.

Heather said...

i love the new layout!! looks awesome!!!!

i am going to make that spaghetti dish this week. we are obsessed with italian food, thank you!

and i had the same problem with picassa a few months ago. DO NOT delete photos in your "upload" folder in blogger OR in picassa it will DELETE them on your blog! I learned the hard way. It was a nightmare. I think I payed like $10 and it gave me more space for the whole year...

LOVE ya girl!!

Amira said...

I ADORE your new header!! Too cute :-)

Also, I feel like a complete moron but what do you mean your pictures are automatically sent to Picasa???

Meghan said...

Love your obsession with mustaches & your new adorable blog design!!

I am now off to stalk you on all your forms of social media lol.

& I've been loving your random mish mashy posts of late!

Erin said...

Love the new sleek look for sure! You trend setters you! :) I don't think I even knew mustaches were "in" UNTIL i came across you and Jon! ha ha....you guys are the cutest.

Amanda C. said...
