Growing Up Fancy Pants

My friend Julia recently updated her little corner of the internet, and I have been having some serious blog envy ever since! You should definitely check out her blog as she is totally fabulous. I would also like to welcome new readers who have ventured over from her blog! If you promise to come by once in awhile, I promise to drink cheap champagne and blog late into the night when I should be sleeping.

In a few days my little blog, which now gets as many page views daily as I used to get a month, will be turning TWO! Don't get me wrong, I by no means think I am a big potato. A fair number of my page views are probably my sister repeatedly refreshing the page to see if I have posted anything in the last five minutes. Hi Kate! But it is exciting to think my readership is growing alongside my family. 

To celebrate Growing Up's birthday I tricked my husband into hours and hours of tedious discussion about font color and CSS customization...whatever the hell that is. Luckily for me my husband learned a little something about computers at some fancy pants college back in the day. (Did I mention he hates it when I tell people he went to MIT. Don't worry Dingle, everyone still thinks you are cool and not at all dorky.) Also luckily for me, said husband owes me a few favors. 

I added a new tab about myself (here), changed the name of a few things, and added a signature to my posts. Matt updated and customized a few things here and there. And lo, we have a new look! Nothing major but I think it looks pretty sharp, as my dad would say. We are still working on adding a few features I have seen around and admired from afar. So definitely stayed tuned for more upgrades in the next few days. 

Take a look around and definitely let me know what you think! 


  1. looks great Ms. Apes. and tell Dingle no matter where he went to school he still is a geek, and i love him.

  2. Whoo hoo, looking great lady! Glad you can get some big time traffic in this webspace;) You will not disappoint the masses.

    Also? Ben's 7 mo post below is amazing. He is just SO CUTE and I found myself nodding my head in agreement with a lot of your points. Keep up the good work with that adorable boy of yours!
