New Look - for me and the blog!

I thought it was time for a change. My first real attempt at "blog design."  What do you think?

Also, Dan and I went to the optometrist Monday for our yearly eye exam.  We both checked out fine, and after spending a small fortune, we will both have new glasses in 5-7 days.  I usually wear contacts, but the doctor suggested I start wearing glasses a few days a week because my eyes are not getting enough oxygen. Who knew 15+hours/day of contact wearing for, oh, 16 years, might do some damage?   She also talked me into wearing sunglasses.  So I got a pair of those, too. They are super cute.  

What?  You're excited to see my new glasses?  So am I!  I'll post pictures when they come in!  

One other interesting note, the office has this new fancy device that takes a picture of your retina.  That way they can check for any abnormalities.  Anyway, mine turned out fine, but funny thing - Dan has a freckle on his retina.  I didn't even know you could have freckles on your retina.  It doesn't interfere with anything, so no cause for concern.  Interesting stuff.

love the blog design - nice job! Yeah, I got that retinal photo thingy - pretty cool! I had something on mine, but it doesn't impact my vision. Excited to see the photos...

love the new blog design!

btw, i just went to the dermatologist last week. he looked into my eyes with some light thingie to check for any moles or freckles. he said that you can get "skin" cancer in your eyes. something about your eyes have the more pigment than anywhere on your body. who knew? anyway, not meaning to freak you out, just sharing my new knowledge.

~can't wait to see the new specks! :)

Chrystal...so happy to see another blogger. This is Mindi Gifford (Angie's sister). I saw your blog from her blog site. It has been too long since we saw you last. We were sure sad when you moved! I hope things are going well for you in Texas.

Love the new design! Gotta learn how to do that! Mine is just boring, but I figure if I'm posting something, it's better than nothing! Can't wait to see the glasses!
