How Ya Like Me Now?

That's right, bee-yotches, check me out! I am spankin new and pretty damn hot, if I do say so myself. Many thanks to the oh-so-patient Mia at Ciao! My Bella for capturing my Jersey Girl essence in my new blog design. She rocks, no?

I took all of your suggestions to heart and I thank you for them. Some I couldn't use exactly (like the boardwalk - couldn't find a good image) but I think we captured the "feel" I was looking for - badass Jersey girl with attitude and a drink in her hand, the Jersey Shore, lots of Jersey sayings on the sidebar, and just a touch of "hurtful pink."

I hope you like it as much as I do! And an extra special thanks to Hub, who graciously gave me the redesign for my Mother's Day present, even though he totally doesn't "get it."

channelling lisa luder from the movie romy and michelle's high school reunion: "They [new design elements] have nice lines. A fun, frisky use of color. All and all, I'd have to say they're really... NOT BAD!"

Can you sense the heat of my jealousy across the continent? I'm seething green, dollin. This is gorgeous. This is quite the gift. This is better than a day at the spa.

...wait, whoa, maybe not.

Excellent, TJG. So beyond TypePad. I bow to you.
