The New Blog address

Bumps in the Road has now become Confessions of a Country Girl and can be found at for now. I haven't made it completely self-hosted yet due to budget constrants so for now I am at the mercy of wordpress. I've got my domain name purchased now all I have to do is find myself affordable web hosting. Hope to see you there!

P.S. You can still follow me in your blogger account you just need to change the url for my blog.


I got good mail!

I got some good mail in the mailbox on Monday! I participated in Kati's blog swap. My partner was Tammy from the blog Home in Virginia....I had a great time! Here's the goodies I got in my box! M

Self Hosted Blogging

The other day I mentioned in a post that I was considering moving my blog to a self hosted site. Which I have decided that I will for sure be doing...Complete with name change too. A self-hosted blog is a webpage in which I will have complete control over in pretty much every aspect (right now I'm just borrowing space on blogger's server...When I move I won't have to worry about that anymore)....I won't be at the mercy of or Blogger anymore. I won't have to worry about blogger deleting my blog for grins and giggle's again...I won't be at the mercy of anyone really design wise anymore. I will have my own little space of the internet to do my thing on. To be honest, I can hardly wait to get started. I've already decided what my new name is going to be and I'm in the process of trying to find a web designer and get the process rolling. I hope my little explanation was helpful.

I've been thinking about making this change for months now. I've been weighing the pro's and con's to making this big of a move and I think that it's time for me to take a leap of faith. As much as I've enjoyed everyone here that I've met on blogger I realize that when I make my big move that not everyone will make the move with me. For those who don't....It's been a pleasure. I hope to see you around the bloggy world.


Here is an example of a self-hosted blog - The Pioneer Woman

A very interesting Tasty Tuesday

As is a very "special" Tasty Tuesday. Don't you just want to eat her up?! Her name is Onyx and she's an 8 month old Shiz Tu/Poodle mix and she's absolutely "massive" at 7 pounds. We're hoping that she'll be coming to live with us soon. Laci and I went to meet her this afternoon and she's soooooo adorable and all she want to do is be held and loved on....Two things she'll get a LOT of here at our house.

A very interesting Tasty Tuesday post coming soon

You don't want to miss it that's for sure....Plus I'll also go into self hosted blogs also.

Somethings I've been thinking about doing....

For a little while now I've been thinking about doing my own swap. I'm going to do a little more studying on the subject and see what I can come up with. I'll keep everyone posted as to when/if the swap will be happening.

Another thing that I've been thinking about doing is maybe making my blog a self hosted blog. I've done a little bit of studying on the subject and some of the other self hosted blogs that I've visited are great. The only thing that really worries me is not having really anything to say on some days.

Tomorrow Tasty Tuesday will probably be a little bit late being posted....Getting my crown put on and determining if I'll actually need a root canal or not. I'm hoping not but right now I'll be honest....It's not looking good.
