A New Blog?

As you can see, this isn’t the usual link! I’m thinking about slowly moving from my iWeb/.mac blog to this wordpress one. I decided that I want to be able to update my blog on my phone, or a computer besides my laptop and I can’t do that with iWeb. So this is just a test…I haven’t really played with the design much yet but it’s very customizable so that’ll change, I just want your opinion on switching. I believe that this will be considerably faster loading as well. 

Onto my life…Yesterday (Saturday) was a glorious day. It was very warm (above 80!), just the perfect day. I got up around noon and left the house at one. I love the weekend for that reason. Alyssa and I walked to Buddy’s to have some burgers then to Hallmark for a graduation card and The Black Cat for a gift certificate. After our walk we went back to Alyssa’s and kinda napped/lounged around, then got up and went for a little adventure to the Oredock to see if the giant metal door was open and..it was! I was so pumped, I climbed under the chain fence then walked down the oredock a bit and got the picture that I’ve been wanting for quite some time. I’m not if it’s exactly right, so I may try to go again but I’m just super excited that I was able to get inside of the Oredock. After that great little find, we met Bonnie, Alycia and Amy at Stacy’s grad party.

Around 6:30 we got ready to go to Jack’s Cabin. Alyssa, Bonnie, Alycia, Amy, Chelsea (Mutty) and I drove out to the Iron River cabin where we met Rissa and Ashleigh. It was a super fun time, we went out on the pontoon as soon as we got there then went up to one of the cabins to mac some Mac n Cheese. If you don’t know about Jack’s cabins…it goes like this. He has 4 cabins all right next to each other on a lake near Iron River. They own a whole bunch of beach and then a peninsula that juts out into the lake where there are horseshoes, sand volleyball and a fire ring. It’s just absolutely perfect, he’s super lucky. 

But anyways, we had a fire and then went back out on the pontoon at like 11:30 P.M. It was absolutely perfect. We just floated in the lake, watched the clear sky filled with stars and listened to Dashboard. We all realized how lucky of kids we really are. Not many people can just do that if they want, a lot of people will probably never even experience anything like that, it was so perfect.

I uploaded some pictures on Flickr from the cabin and one of the Ore dock pictures, so you should definitely check those out. Here’s the link. Other than that, I’m just super happy that it’s the weekend, too bad I have to work tomorrow 😦 

Q. What do you think of this whole blog moving thing?  Is it faster loading?
