Closing Time meets Opening Day!

Well, today we sign a billion papers, fork over a lot of cash, and take on the biggest responsibility since the day we learned there is a payment called car insurance that we have to pay ourselves if we want to drive adopted lil Rocco... today we buy our first house!

So what does a blogger think about when a huge event like this happens?! This calls for a 2nd blog!

www.roccosmodernhome.com, your new fabulous source for everything renovation! Just kidding, basically I set this site up as a great tool for us to showcase all the before and after projects, so our friends and family can see just how crafty us cool cats can be. I decided to spice things up and try out a Wordpress layout, but not going to lie- its a helluva lot different than blogger and I have to go back to square one & figure out how to apply CSS to change a font color. (which after buying the upgrade and attempting 20 different codes so far, no luck)

As you can see on the new blog, I'm uber obsessive over everything design blogs. What are your favorites to peruze over the web? Do tell!

And if anyone feels like picking up a paint brush this weekend, you could just be my new BFF!
