I know, I know.. shame on me

I know a lot of bloggers out there frown on me for changing my background all the time.  Quite frankly, though, I don't mind.  I figure that there are so many cute backgrounds out there, I might as well use them... especially since the ones I use are free!

Lately, with the changing of the spring weather, I needed a different background that felt more 'spring-y'.  So, voila. Enter new background.  It comes from thecutestblogontheblock.com.  Although I don't like ALL of their templates, they do have several cute ones. :-)

And, since I happened to be in this new blog background spree, my mom and sis let me redo theirs as well!! *evil laugh* I'm taking over!!! Mwahahaha!  It's so nice that they allowed me to do that... now that I know their passwords, I can wreak havoc!!!!  Since they trusted me with their information, I'll use it very carefully..

Ok, just kidding.  However, I did redesign their blog backgrounds. Which basically means I just copied and pasted a new background onto it. But, I like to give myself credit. ;-)  I did edit the HTML a little bit, which was SUPER scary.. I was just hoping the whole time that I wouldn't totally ruin their blogs! haha!

Anyway, I thought their blogs turned out really cute.  You can visit them here and here.

As for a quick update, bull sale #1 is just around the corner.. literally!  I always enjoy bull sale season.. but I also don't mind when it's over!  Our life is pretty busy during this season. However, all the bull sales are like little mini vacations with the family, so it is nice in that sense.  This first sale is my favorite... Here's why: 1) there's a swimming pool in the hotel! 2) the day before the sale, while the guys are talking bull with the other ranchers, we ladies head over to a local antique store. 3) It's the longest one, so it means more family time away from home! It's nice. :-)

Ok, maybe I shouldn't say my 'favorite' because the second one is in my grandparent's town, so we get to stay with them... and they serve free donuts over there!! YUM! :-) and free lunch... so, yeah. ;-)  Good times. :-)

But, before I close.... how does everyone like this background??

In Christ's Service,

Yeah, Becs and I were looking at backgrounds and as soon as we came across this one, we both went 'ohh!'. ;) And yes, I probably have that switched... hehe!
Thanks for the prayers! We could definitely use them this year. Because of the bad rainless summer last year, lots of ranchers sold their cows... which means people won't need as many bulls... :\ Love you dear!!!
