Monday and a Makeover

Don't know if you noticed, but the blog has a new look! I am thrilled with the finish product: the chevron and lattice patterns, the color palette, and the fonts. Erin from Designer Blogs executed my vision to perfection!

She made sure I was completely happy with the design - even if it meant changing fonts three times. She responded to emails and my requests immediately, and the whole thing was completed in just under 5 days; it would have been less, but I held up the show because I wanted the design to marinate before I made any decisions. If you are ever considering a blog face lift, she is your gal!

As the blog makeover suggests, I am pretty serious about continuing Glam Granola as a space to share our successes - and pitfalls - as we embark on home ownership and attempt to update our first home. It allows me to share the ideas swirling around in my head, get feedback from you on whether I am heading in the right direction, as well as share recipes and fashion trends that keep my belly full and my heart a-flutter.

So (big deep breath as I put myself out there), if you are liking what you see over here at GG please leave me a comment, become a follower, or even spread the word. Because my favorite part of this blogging experience so far is hearing from all of you, and even meeting some virtual friends whose own blogs - and homes - I have been admiring for the better part of a year. I hope GG can be a space where these conversations continue! (Maybe even until we look like this?)

Thanks for reading and being a part of this adventure with me!


  1. Nicole,

    Your site looks great! I love loging onto Facebook and reading your posts about the new house and the upcoming projects. It brings me back to the days when Brian and I were in your shoes and trying to figure out where to start w/ our place. This is am amazing time and I am so excited for you guys! Brian and I look forward to following your progress through your blog and cannot wait to see your new casa next time we come home (hopefully August)!


  2. Hi Judy,

    So glad you like the blog and thanks for your sweet words about being first-time homeowners. I imagine it pales in comparison only to having a bambino. Glad you are forging that trail for us so we can learn from you and Brian! Can't wait to see all you - and meet Brooks - this summer!



  3. LOVE the new look, it's so perfect and so you! I too look forward to reading your blog. You do a lot of the research and leg work I'm too lazy to do, so you inspire me to keep on keeping on :)

  4. I absolutely love the design of your blog - I was on Designer Blogs website browsing around for inspiration (like I frequently do! I'm wanting them to design a blog for me but I'm doing a lot of looking at design before I embark on it because I'm a very indecisive person!) and your header caught my attention. Love the color combo, Erin did a fantastic job!

  5. Thanks, Holly! Erin did an amazing job and was a breeze to work with. I don't have experience working with anyone else, but their prices seem reasonable compared to others. I love the header and the color combo too!
