First things first! The Lean Green Bean got a facelift!
Out with the old…
In with the new…
If you’re reading in a reader right now, be sure to click over to my homepage, check out the new look and let me know what you think! I’m completely and totally in love with it. I’ve been thinking about doing a redesign for a while now and finally took the plunge. I worked with Rita at Blog Genie who is nothing short of AMAZING. Seriously…if you’ve been thinking about redesigning your blog, getting a new header, switching from blogger to wordpress…pretty much anything blog related, I would HIGHLY recommend her. She has the patience of a saint. I had NO IDEA what I wanted my new header to look like and we went through about 10 drafts that were all drastically different before I was happy. She never complained, always answered my emails promptly and with smiley faces to boot 🙂
The only thing that isn’t done yet is drop down menus, which i’ll be working on for the new few days! So stay tuned for that 🙂
SO, just in case that wasn’t enough excitement for you for one day, I’ve got an amazing recipe to share with you also!
I’ve been on spring break this week, which means hubby and I have gotten to eat lunch together a few times! On Monday, I did a little sweet potato experiment that turned out WONDERFULLY!
Let’s take a look shall we?
What is that, you may ask?
Deliciousness in a sweet potato shell.
