When It's time to change.....you know it's time to change

Do not adjust your monitor - you are on Kelly's Korner!


So Jennisa did an awesome job on my blog a few months ago and she also is the one who made the wonderful blog button for us while Harper was in the hospital. I loved the little cartoon picture of our family.
But I always have the itch to change.........so Kelly had talked to me before Harper was born about working on my blog sometime and I just took her up on it. Hope you like the change!

And because I hate posts without pictures:
Me and my sweetie pie

I'm off to get my hair done.
Pray Harper won't scream the whole time in church tomorrow. I'm soooooo nervous. I don't mind taking her out and keeping her in the nursing room but I would love to hear the service tomorrow!

Love the new look!
(I've been eyeing fabulouskcreative blog designs for awhile now! I'm so jealous! One day I'll be out of school and get one of my own, but for now, I have to be satisfied with the free ones and just idolize everyone else's!)
Happy Easter!!!

Great new look!

Our Family said...

I love the new banner!! Very nice. I was right where you were a couple weeks back. I took Emma to church for the first time. And she did scream...and they almost came to get me but then she fell asleep and slept for 40 minutes. Woo hoo. Just take all your baby gear and go for it she'll be fine:)

Hey, your blog looks awesome! It's fun and beautiful, too!
Happy Easter!!!

Lissa said...

Love the new layout! Happy Easter! He is risen! Hallelujah!

Wendy said...

Love the update! Now that I'm a mom, I like to think of babies' noises during church as their joyful noise to the Lord! My Taylor loves to blow raspberries during prayer and the priest swears he can't hear them but I do know that most of the people around us have a hard time holding in their laughs just as we do. How could Harper not love church when she comes from a Mama that has such a love for the Lord and church??

Love it! Harper is such a sweetie!

Becky said...

I like it! Harper may surprise you. There will be all kinds of new sights and sounds. Well, maybe she won't like sights and sounds....She should be able to go into the nursery soon I would think. RSV is over in some parts of the country now.

Christie C. said...

LOVE the new layout :)

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter tomorrow.

Julee said...

Love the blue and brown! I am about ready for a change on my blog too!! Hope you have a wonderful Easter!!

Living on the Spit said...

Our church has a nursing room with large screen monitors so you can watch and hear the services...and nice cushy rockers!!!

Love the new do and Harper looks a lot like your Mom to me...I'm just saying!!! She is just too precious...babies should really not be THAT cute!

Hope you and your new family have a fantastic FIRST Easter!

Jill said...

what a darling new look! i love it!!
i hope tomorrow's outing is a success!! i am sure it will be wonderful to have all of you together as a family at church.

Stafford Moments said...

All I can say is I LOVE IT! Let me know if you have time to have lunch next week. I can bring lunch to your house. Happy Easter and best of luck tomorrow. Melissa

~aj~ said...

I think your blog looks fantastic!

I hope Harper does really well tomorrow. Take a diaper bag full of distractions to keep her entertained. I've found the BEST distractions are things that they don't normally get to play with (like a spoon, make up brush, cosmetics mirror, etc).

And if your church is anything like mine, you've probably got lots of older women that would LOVE to rock Harper for you, so you can stay and worship.

Happy Easter!!!

Jen said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the new look!! Cute pics too!!

Kristin said...

I LOVE the new look. I just got a makeover on mine too, and it's so refreshing to have something new, isn't it?! Yours is adorable! I love the colors....they're similar to my new ones. :)

I will pray Harper doesn't cry. I'm in the same boat. I just started visiting churches and I'm planning to take my 2 year old for the first time tomorrow. She's in a phase where she won't let go of me, so I highly doubt she'll stay in the nursery and I don't want to miss the service either if she starts being loud or acting up. I'm so nervous too, especially since I don't really know anyone at this new church and it's really small, so any little noise will be heard! LOL

Good luck and have a wonderful Easter!!

Kristin

Macy and Lucy said...

Blue-Eyed Bride said...

i love the new header and overall look. very "kelly!"

our church doesn't even allow babies or children under age 3 in the big service, so they all go to the nursery. i know there will be times when the baby comes that i'll want him in the service with me. :(

KK said...

Your blog looks great as always! Cute pictures of your family!
You and Miss Harper, what a great picture.
Hope your day went well.
Happy Easter to you and your family,

Kelly,
Love the new look! I especially love the colors. They remind me so much of my friend Kristin's new blog design she just got this week! I just had to tell you that I went all over creation looking for Almond Bark yesterday and today, and wouldn't you know it, I ended up finding at Walmart this afternoon!!! I should of just checked there first knowing how much you shop at Walmart, LOL. Anyways, hope you guys have a great day tomorrow! I will be praying for you!!!

Oh I love the new page!!! So cute!
I will be thinking of you guys tomorrow, and praying of course ;)
I want to try and keep Charlotte AND Audrey in the service until Children's church dismisses. So, I feel your pain about being nervous. The last time I tried to keep Charlotte out in the sanctuary until then, did not fair so well. So, I will be praying for you!!

Jenn said...

Love the new look. Also, I am nervous about my little guy tomorrow in church too. I just know more kids will be there than usual so hopefully his "noises" will blend better :)

Dawn said...

Love the new look! But I just have to say I'm very surprised that Harper doesn't have one of her signature flower bows on. ha!

Are you watching the new drama Harper's Island? I DVR'd it but haven't had a chance to see it yet.

June said...

That post just reminded me of my first little girls first Sunday at church. I took her Easter Sunday for the first time and she was 6 weeks old. During the opening prayer she started grunting and had an explosive poop session and it shot all the way up to her neck. It was my first time with her out and about and hadn't learned the "take an extra outfit everywhere you go" trick. I had to go home and missed the whole service.

Angela said...

Love the new look!!

Vivit! He lives! Praying as always!
Job 19:25-27 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

1. I know that my Redeemer lives;
What comfort this sweet sentence gives!
He lives, He lives, who once was dead;
He lives, my ever-living Head.

2. He lives triumphant from the grave,
He lives eternally to save,
He lives all-glorious in the sky,
He lives exalted there on high.

3. He lives to bless me with His love,
He lives to plead for me above.
He lives my hungry soul to feed,
He lives to help in time of need.

4. He lives to grant me rich supply,
He lives to guide me with His eye,
He lives to comfort me when faint,
He lives to hear my soul's complaint.

5. He lives to silence all my fears,
He lives to wipe away my tears
He lives to calm my troubled heart,
He lives all blessings to impart.

6. He lives, my kind, wise, heavenly Friend,
He lives and loves me to the end;
He lives, and while He lives, I'll sing;
He lives, my Prophet, Priest, and King.

7. He lives and grants me daily breath;
He lives, and I shall conquer death:
He lives my mansion to prepare;
He Iives to bring me safely there.

8. He lives, all glory to His name!
He lives, my Jesus, still the same.
Oh, the sweet joy this sentence gives,
"I know that my Redeemer lives!"

Lynn said...

Happy Easter to you! Love the new look! =) Will pray for you that Harper doesn't cry so much in church. As a priest once told our congregation, "I think when babies cry, that's their way of praying." May you have a joyous 1st Easter with your precious Harper!

HE IS RISEN, Alleluiah, alleluiah!!

Love the new look! Happy Easter!

Jennifer said...

I love that there are pics on your header now! Cute!

Hope today went well in church! We just stopped hanging out in the nursing room 2 months ago during service. Thankfully, they have a live feed of the service on a tv in there, so I didn't feel like I missed out!

marla said...

Your layout looks great!

Courtney said...

Love the new blog look. I am writing this on Sunday afternoon, so I am hoping that your church experience went well. I spend a lot of time with my nephew in the side room at church because he can't make it through a whole service yet and he is over one year (sorry that wasn't very encouraging), but I have found it is not the worst thing in the world and it will pass!

Little Mama said...

Love the new look! i love that you put pictures on your blog. I makes us feel like we know you more.

harmonysong said...

Oh boy, do I LOVE the new look!! :)

The new blog design is great. I like to change mine, too. I get bored easily.
