it's a hip-hop-heat-wave!!!!!!!






yeah, so it's a big ole heat wave here in the midwest. last week we had temps for about 4 days of 45 below zero (yes, shut up! it IS true!). we even had school canceled (loved that one). today it's supposed to get up into the mid 30's. that's hot! and so is unity!!!!


so please, let the hopping begin here: http://www.theunitystampco.blogspot.com/ .


after you leave my blog, head here: http://inmythoughts.typepad.com/in_my_stamp_room/ .


and, please answer me this: why is it, that when i hit return several times (to leave some spaces) in my blog posts, it looks great in the draft??? and THEN, when it posts, everything is all SQUISHY?!?! wth??

LOVE these layouts, Jen!!!

I always have issues with my spacing in my blogposts if I am using Explorer, but I never have any problem with Mozilla so I am thinking that it's an Explorer issue...

Too funny about getting carded. My husband and I just talked last weekend about how fun it would be to get carded at 37 and 41. lol

Your son's advice is spot on. ;-)

The spacing thing annoys me on my blog, too. I don't know why it does that. I go to the html tab now and put a space in there and it seems to work. Odd!
