Suggestions? Feedback? Anyone?

But first, did you notice my cute new header?  I did not plan that at all.  Let me tell you the story..

If you talk on twitter about how you don't have a blog button, Teri Lynne from Pleasing to You might notice.  If Teri Lynne realizes you don't have a blog button, she might tell you that you need one.  If she tells you that you need one, she might decide to make you a blog button.  If she makes you a blog button, she might start thinking that you really should have a matching header.  If Teri Lynne thinks you need a matching header, she might try to make one for you.  If she tries to make one for you, she might surprise you with the finished product.  If you get the finished product, you might start talking on twitter about your cute new header.  If you start talking about your cute new header, Teri Lynne might notice.   :)

Thank you Teri Lynne - so very sweet!!

I am having a hard time putting a good post together.  I have a couple of drafts of posts I want to do, but can't put all my thoughts together and I have other ideas but can't get the words out right.  I even have vlogs all worked out in my head, but haven't had time to film myself.  I'm hoping this will be the week that I get back to feeling somewhat organized - both at home and on my blog.  And maybe this will be the week that the repairman shows up to replace the brand new dishwasher's motor.  Maybe.

Around this time last year, I told you about things I wanted to do on my blog during the year, like theme weeks, blog celebrations, etc.  And now?  I got nothin.  Don't worry - that doesn't mean there won't be fun things!  I just haven't had a chance to really think about what I want to do.  Of course, we had Christmas vacation and then company so I haven't had much time to myself to think and plan.  Ack - and I don't even have a 2010 planner yet which is really messing me up - I MUST get one today.  Thanks for reminding me!  :)

Do you have any suggestions?  What would you like to see here in the next few months?  What did you like best on my blog last year?  While you're at it, feel free to share any feedback about what you like or don't like!  Hey, you can always comment as anonymous if you have negative feedback - it's not like I can track you down and take your chocolate away!  :)

Thank you all for sticking around and I hope you'll come back again and again!  I do enjoy your company!

Edited to Add:  Oh, and now my new button is up - feel free to grab it for your blog (just copy the code)!  I'm not saying that you have to of course, but you know it would be a cute addition to your sidebar!  ;)

Stop & Smell the Chocolates

Have a marvelous Monday!


  1. Good Morning, Lisa, I love your new header, it is so cute! That was a great surprise!

    I love your blog as is! I know what you mean, though. I've fretted over what to post in the coming month, but my mind is blank or either I can't get my thoughts organized. Of course, I am STILL taking down wonder my mind can't get past, and into the New Year! LOL!

    Hope you are staying warm! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

  2. LOL! You blog about nothing and gain people, I blog about nothing and lose people. That's really not that fair! LOL!
    You know I love all your stuff. Mostly your silly stuff of course about your home life.

    TERI LYNNE if you read this I could use a button too! LOL! *wink*

    Big I don't get offered anything for my blog I guess because it doesn't involve chocolate size hugs to you! LOL.

    Have a fabulous day my friend.


    No suggestions on the blog... I love it too.

  4. Thanks for the sweet words, Chocopalooza!! And from your friends too! I adore your blog. For us non-"foodies" your blog is just a lovely place to wish we were like you!

  5. And if you give a pig a pancake...
    Loved that reference. :)

    very cute header. Very cute indeed.

    I have a hard enough time with my own blog and what to write, girl. Thinking about writing about Going shopping for conference clothes today. What do you think?


  6. I love the new look and I love how you wrote that post!

    I have always loved the recipes you post on here. Of course I love the chocolate ones, but any dessert is fine too.

  7. Well, your new look is just adorable!! I'm fairly new to your blog, so I don't have any suggestions yet. Keep up the good work!

  8. I love the new header and the button. In fact, I loved it so much I grabbed it! (The button, that is).

    I really like the chocolate Fridays and dessert Fridays. I also like the week long recipe bonanzas; like the Fall Fruits Festival and such.
    Are you going to do something for Valentine's Day? Sweetheart goodies, perhaps?

  9. You should blog about chocolate. Definitely more chocolate.


  10. NICE button! :)

    I really enjoyed the fall fruits festival...that was FUN! :)

    One thing I would love to see is a chocolate showdown...comparing brands of cocoa powder, ready to eat chocolate, etc. for their taste and performance in various applications!! :)

  11. I absolutely love your new header. I showed it to Beth and she thinks is great, also.

    I like your recipes, but more when you make me a guinea pig or even just bring me your deliciousness.

    Love you and pray for wisdom and great success on blogging this year.

  12. I LOVE your new header & button. TOO cute. So appropriate! Terri Lynne is so cool!
