Whew, this weekend flew by! I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving. We took an uneventful trip to Big Bear. There was rain but no snow and everything was closed. We did have a delish turkey dinner and we have tons to be grateful for.
Yesterday my friends Jes, Nic and I hosted a baby shower for Story & Chris. It was so much fun! Not everyone on our guest list could make it since it was a holiday weekend but all my favorite people came and we had a great time. Many hugs and thanks to Nic & Jes for helping me host and making Story so happy.

I know my last few posts have been me complaining. I’m definitely in the works of fixing that. I have been bummed since my laptop is always giving me trouble but I found a solution. It’s going to take a few weeks to get it all taken care of. I’m super happy because I am going to take an e-course this month at Pugly Pixel. I love blogging but it is quite frustrating that I know nothing about web coding or html junk. I can’t afford a fancy class like Blogshop *hopefully one day I will* This course will help me figure out how to size my photos, basic coding, add awesome fonts and use Photoshop. Once I get my computer running better, I can start using Photoshop more in my posts. I’m so excited!
My goal is to learn enough so by the new year I can redesign my blog. I want to fix all the wonky issues *Antz has let me know that my suggested posts are dead links* and have it running smoothly for 2014. I also hope to go back to having more monthly features *Mix Tape Fridays/Want/Need/Wear/Read* and post my holiday shopping/wishlist guides. I would love feedback from my lovely readers. I hope to grow Violently Happy into a place where folks visit and want to stay a while.
Today we are putting up the Christmas lights and maybe tonight we’ll pick up a little tree for Liv. I hope you all have a FABulous December!!
