I would like to change the header name on my blog from Johnson, Johnson ... & Johnson to : ??
Your Choice(if I like it ).
It can't be too cheesy, too serious or sappy; just clever, free of my last name, a little funny, and better than all of your headers - you know, so I can surpass the Jones'. Okay, now GO! Tell me! What's my new title?
***Okay, so I'm going to add that I'm definitely enjoying my MapCluster I've added there at the bottom of my blog. It shows me how many hits I'm getting and where in the world they're coming from. But now my curiosity is getting the best of me. So this is the thing: Not to make my Saudi Arabia friend feel awkward, but would you like to show yourself? I am trying to think of who in Saudi Arabia would possibly find my blog (I have my blog so that it cannot be searched through google or blogspot). If you are someone I'd like to become pen pals with, leave me a comment! Suggest a new name for my blog! Pinch Taya's cheeks even! Or if you know me, leave me a comment! Suggest a new name ...... Okay, you get the point.
And I bet I speak for all bloggers when I invite anyone else who periodically takes a peek at my blog to poke their head in and say hi.***
I'm getting even more excited for Thanksgiving (my excitement began when October started - my entire family is having it together out here in Arizona). I'm helping to plan our Thanksgiving menu - I'm looking up fresh produce markets to buy our goods at, and I'm writing my posts in Thanksgiving colors, how excited are you?
Here is a bit of catch up on Halloween pictures of Taya. We had a blessing and baptism of our favorite niece & favorite nephew (don't worry all 26 of our other nieces & nephews - you're our favorites too -especially when you draw us pictures and give us candy) in Las Vegas that weekend, and we were able to leave at lunch time on Halloween to make it to Las Vegas just in time to trick or treat with all of Paul's family. We finished the night off with chili & cornbread and dug into Taya's candy :) (the only year we can do that)
(This is funny - these people weren't home & Taya just hopped on their tricycle sitting on the front porch - we snapped a pic before we took her off - should we leave a copy of the pic in their mailbox?)
You can now find me at www.redpoppyphoto.com & www.redpoppyphoto.com/blog/. I am snapping away in the photography world and loving it. Maybe one day I will come back and combine blogging more seriously, with my own chosen photography projects. For now though, I blog just a little, Instagram a lot, and I do many portrait and lifestyle photography projects ranging from weddings and events to fashion to documentary-style/story-telling. Come follow me at RedPoppyPhoto!
Dad by Design (aka Paul)
Welcome!! MomByDesign has a few meanings to me; I was created to a mom, I have chosen to accept that role & take it seriously ... and, I love design! I am married to a great man (Paul), & have a 3 year old socialite daughter named Taya & a sweetie pie baby girl named Dyllan. We enjoy our times living in the greater Phoenix area, spending time focused on family, church, camping, design, photography, house projects, cooking & good food, and meaningful friends! In the past I've worked in cabinetry design, vocational rehab, and social work (quite the mix huh?), but right now I am enjoying my time at home as a mom, with photography on the side, and rare hobby time spent on interior design, yoga, singing & occassionally (oh so occasionally) putting on some rusty dance shoes. Drop me a line & say hi!
Some of my favorite tunes! (Just hit pause if you don't like it)
