My Blog Just Got Plastic Surgery

I've decided that three years is the age when a little bit of botox and facial injections become necessary. I know this may seem a little young to some of you, but when it comes to the appearance of a blog, three years is a very long time to keep something "as-is". Things start to sag, look a little mundane, and starts to take on the appearance of a woman who has been married for 5+ years. Because I didn't want my blog to go down that road, I figured it was time for a little bit of life brought back into it. Think of it as bringin' sexy back. I love the new fresh look and hope you do too. Mad props to my girl Melissa from Melissa Rose Design. Melissa is much like my hair stylist. I go to her, say "do whatever you want", she does it, and then blows my mind every freaking time. We call these people hero's. Thank you Melissa for making it look like I know what's going on around here when in reality, I have no idea. 

To celebrate the new design and feel around here, I figured it was a good time to give free shaz away. While you are busy entering, I will be busy backin my azz up getting prepared for the Grammys. To get us all in the proper mindset, here's some Miley for you. Who better than her when celebrating 2013 music. Gosh I miss the 90's.
