You Can Lead A Horse To Water.....

I don't like the look of my blog. I don't know if it's because I put green borders around the pictures (I tried to change it but it wouldn't let me) or if it just looks too boxy, I don't know. I haven't been writing much cause I just don't like it.

I found a new template yesterday that I love and it looked pretty simple to apply. "Copy and paste, it's that easy!" But when I right clicked, I didn't have the 'copy' option. There was a 'select all' so I tried that but it changed the format and wouldn't save. I spent 45 mintues on that thing, but nothing worked. So frustrating.

I thought maybe getting some new pictures of Beth would help. We've had gorgeous weather in Seattle this week, sunny skies and temps in the high 50s. I thought it would be a perfect time to take some pictures. I went downstairs and asked Beth if we could do another photo shoot. She said okay.

I came upstairs and grabbed my camera. Went out to the backyard and set up a couple of places to take pictures. Brought out a chair, cleaned off the bench in the garden.... no Beth. I went back downstairs and she was taking out her headband. Interesting. She always wears a headband. Oh well.

She finally gets to the back door and s.l.o.w.l.y comes down the steps. I asked her if she wants to stand next to the tree or sit on the bench.


She then s.l.o.w.l.y walks over to the bench.

"Okay Beth ready? One, two, three."

"Come on Beth, smile!"

"Beth, come on. Think of Dad's birthday coming up or something fun!"

"You really don't want to do this, do you?"

Sigh. I guess I'll try again another day.

Oh Beth - my kiddos do the same thing. I have to bribe with a trip to the toy store if I want a smile in an attempted photo shoot!
Good luck with getting your blog worked out. I have spent hours and hours testing different looks and styles on mine :)

The picture of Beth over on the right hand side is lovely :)

I love the picture on the right too! Beth certainly does communicate!!!!!! I too want to change the look of my blog, but can't quite find the time right now, and am glad, given your adventures, that I haven't! (tried that is).

Haha, these pictures crack me up, she sure has attitude!

As far as the blog goes just keep fiddling around with it and you'll figure it out. Once you get the hang of it changing it up is really quite easy...I always change my blog when I am bored :)

Is there something in particular you are wanting it to look like? Maybe I could help?

Hehehe - she cracks me up!!! Love the attitude. I get a lot of that at home, too. LOL :-) As for the blog...well, I have found that Blogger's new format is not terribly conducive to easy blog formatting. Maybe I just haven't given it a chance, but I thought the old way was easier. Good luck!

I think she's the kind of person that needs a crowd behind the photographer making funny faces at her and making her laugh.
