The Grand Tour + A Blog Giveaway!!

Many of you have noticed that our blog got a huge upgrade about a week ago. I mean, seriously, how could you not notice??

If you are new to the site, this is what it used to look like:
If you guessed that I designed it myself, you're right. Ugh.

Now that you are getting to visit with me and my family in this bright new spot, what do you think of it?? I absolutely love it! And if you would humor me, I'd like to give you the grand tour of our new space:

-It's now a cleaner, brighter site! My number one request was for a site that was lighter and easier to read.  Sarah, the designer, came up with this!

-There is a streamlined tab bar with drop down menus! Go ahead and look around up there! It’s easier to navigate!

-We have an awesome new header with customized figures to represent our family! I just have to brag on Sarah for a minute here. I found the bride and groom on the internet, but couldn’t find a mom and dad that matched them. She actually drew the mom and dad to look like us, changed the hairstyle on the groom to match the dad, and found the kids that she customized with their colors! I love that each of the kids so perfectly matches the personalities of their real life models! So much work and thoughtfulness was put into the header! I LOVE what she did with it!

-There are nifty little buttons to guide you to our Pinterest account (want to see what a mom of quads pins??), our twitter account (for fun up to date quips on the funny things they do), our new FaceBook page (give us a like!), our YouTube videos (in case you want to see Abby dancing on the coffee table again), and, of course, our RSS feed!

Sarah of Sarah Beth Digital Design is the mastermind behind our new little home in the blogging world and she went above and beyond with her redesign. She totally blew me away with how perfectly she captured exactly what I wanted! LOVE IT! I’m pretty blessed to have had my friend who is a professional website designer offer to redo my blog just because!

Actually, she didn’t just offer to redesign my blog! She asked if I would be willing to host a giveaway because she wants to give a blog/website design away to one of my readers too!

If you have done any research in how much it costs to design a blog or website, you know how big this is! 

Want to know exactly what you will get if you win the giveaway??

  1. Love the giveaway! Your blog does look fabulous and the header is adorable!!

  2. A design that is modern, simple and clean, but with an edge to it!

  3. Great giveaway! Would love a design that isn't boring (because I simply just can't choose a design that is exciting!)

  4. Love the give away (hope I win) and love the new blog too! So fun!

  5. Hmm...the giveaway thing isnt working for me? It wont load

    1. Sorry to hear that! It appears to be working for me. I'm using Google Chrome as my browser. Is it even letting you see the sign-in spot? It gives options for signing in using FB or just putting your email address (so I can contact you if you win!).

      Please let me know if it's still not working. We will definitely figure out a way to get you entered!

  6. I really need this giveaway for the KC Parents of Multiples site.

  7. I love the new look of your blog! She did a great job. I'm hoping that I subscribed to yours and hers correctly as I had a few issues. I started a blog when my girls were born but I'm soooo far behind. For some reason I had a hard time emotionally with their 6 month post and it got me really far behind. Having both of our families out of state they love reading about the things they're doing and seeing pics- it helps lessen the distance just a little. I'd love to win and give our boring blog a facelift and hopefully jump start our blog again as the girls are changing so much right now!

  8. if I won, I would love my blog to be completely redone. It's in desperate need of a makeover

  11. I'd like a total remake of my blog. Something clean, colorful, and not too busy.


  12. My blog is actually really sad looking and needs, oh, a complete redo and updated pictures (can she throw in some tips on getting a toddler to sleep so I can actually write on the blog too;) ).

  13. Love the design! I would love a redesign for my blog. My blog is called A Spectacled Owl so I would LOVE a design having to do with owls!

  14. I would like my Wordpress blog redesigned

  15. I have been wanting to get back to my blog for a while. Maybe a redesign by Sarah would help.

  16. I need something with good embedded galleries.

  17. I'd love a simple 2-column white design for blogger :)

  18. I want something you've got. Less color, more white, easier to see text.

  19. something for my business,something girly,glittery,cute!

  20. Clean and simple ... I like. :)

  21. I pretty much ignored my blogs (one blogger, one wp) since I got sick again and only have a partial redesign and have been too tired to finish- I'd love a crisp, clean, engaging design that is easier to navigate.

  22. oohhhhh!! i want to win! pick me, pick me! my blog desperately needs a makeover and i'm so poor! Rebecca, i love the new look of your's clean, it.

  23. I love the look of your new blog and thanks Rebecca for sharing all the funny little stories of your life with quads! You always make me laugh and smile!
