It's day 2 of #bloggiesta, and I've been getting a lot done, surprisingly. I've got a spiffy new layout (well, header)... which I've went back and edited about 12 times. Let me know what you think in the comments!
Bloggiesta is hosted by There's A Book and It's All About Books, and runs from September 28-30.
I've updated my to-do list and will work on more mini-challenges today. I'm not sure how much time I'll have to update tomorrow, since it's a full day of working on my godson's birthday party again, and a product presentation at my favorite spa. Cheers to free samples.
