A New Name

I'd been thinking about changing my blog's name for a long time, but couldn't think of anything until today when I thought up "All Gussied Up"...which I think is funny and describes me quite well. Ever since I started wearing makeup (about 10 years old--and it was BAD), my dad would say (and still does), "What are you all gussied up for?!" So the phrase stuck with me and I thought it would be perfect for the blog.
Here's Urban Dictionary's definition:
Something gussied up has been made more attractive, but in a showy or gimmicky way, so it’s often not intended to be a compliment. It can also refer to dressing in one’s finery for some special occasion, when it is intended to be taken more straightforwardly. It is usually considered to be an American expression, dating from the late 1930s or thereabouts.

My blog header and design will shortly change as well...

  2. No, I just changed the web address back because I realized no one could find it! I'm working on a new blog design since it has a new name.
