The Life of Bon: Ahem... ANNOUNCING...

Ahem... ANNOUNCING...

I hereby present to you....

MY NEW BLOG DESIGN!

Didn't Deidre do an amazing job?  It is seriously just what I want.  So simple.  So clean.  So freaking legit!

Say goodbye to this bad boy.  We are officially parting ways forever.


Here's what happened.  I desperately needed a new blog design.  Desperate as in "I've had this same design for ten months and although I loved it at first I am now so sick of it that I could literally projectile vomit all over my computer screen every time I open my laptop" kind of desperate.  Yah.  It was bad.

So, I posted a frantic and desperate facebook message, "HELP PLEASE!  I need a blog designed cheap and fast!"  The fast part was important.  The cheap part even more important.

I got back a couple of offers of blog designers who were cheap.  I looked at a couple of sample blogs and was narrowing in on a decision.  Then Deidre told me she'd do it for free because she's just that gosh darn nice.

And hey.  Free is always better than cheap, am I right or am I right?  (Hubs once told me I'd walk away with a bag of used toilet paper if I thought it was free.  Hmmm....)

So I said, "Deidre!  You bet your sweet bippy that you've got yourself a deal!  In exchange for your free blog design I will... think you're real great!"  And yes, I admit someone got real screwed on this deal, but I'm not going to say who...

And so, Deidre did her amazing free work and by golly, you'd never know the blog design was free from the looking at it.  Deidre, my dear, you have out done yourself and I simply cannot thank you enough!

Does this lady deserve a round of applause or what?  Let's give her a round!

In other news, a student from last year saw me in the hallway for the first time this school year.  He yelled out to me as I scurried down the hall to retrieve my copies, "Teacher!  You went blonde?!? Huge mistake!  You were way hotter brunnette, just to let you know!"

Uh... thank you?  Kids these days!  Just where do they get their nerve?

P.S.  Do you notice those super professional looking social media buttons on the top right side bar?  Do those things look amazing or what?  Now you can follow me any way you want because it's that freaking easy!

  7. Love it - it looks awesome!

    Also, I love to hear your stories about your high school students. I taught high school math the last 2 years & some of the things those kids come up with should be compiled in a book somewhere!
