New Look for Honey Pie - Coming Soon!

I've sprinkled around the rumor that I'll be getting a new, updated look soon, but I've been on pins & needles because the pic I wanted to use was all copyrighted-n-stuff.

I contacted the illustrator who gave her OK, but she needed to check with the publisher too. Fingers crossed. Penny in the fountain. Offer up a chicken to the publishing gods.

The Great Publishio was appeased by my offering of a stale McNugget found in the cushions of my backseat, so Pokemon Master Nick is hard at work on my vision as we speak.

Be prepared for a grand re-opening with wicked cool prizes. (I'm not really sure what you would do to prepare for this - perhaps relax with a gin & tonic and reflect?) I will be preparing by going outside to finish mowing the lawn and picking up the remains of a thousand water balloons.

Coming soonish.

The Teaser:

-----------------------

Do not click on Humor-Blogs. I'm only adding this to see if the new RSS feed thing is working.

Woo hoo! I wait with baited breath!

(So I won't be actually breathing on anyone until I get a Mento... bait breath, you know. Not attractive.)

Mary Witzl said...

I clicked Humor Blogs anyway! I couldn't help myself.

Wish I could bribe someone with a stale chicken McNugget or similar. I'd be in pretty good shape for getting things done around here.

Bobbi said...

Can't wait to see the new site! I have no clue what the teaser is!!

Alice said...

Jenn - LOL - I'm gonna use 'bait breath' more regularly now.

Mary - Thanks for clicking on HB, but they have a whole new smiley face system now, and you have to be a member to vote. Just nuts.

Bobbi - *mystery music here* ; )

Stacey @Real World Mom said...

How exciting! I recently renovated my blog too. Can't wait to see the new place! :-)

The Mom said...

OOh I can't wait!

Kelly said...

Can't wait...and who wouldn't take you up on the stale nugget offer? :)

Robyn said...

Stale nuggets are especially good with BBQ sauce. Spicy.

And my guess? AROOOOOooooooo.

That's a wolf howl. It's hard to spell that phonetically.

Bex said...

Oh, I'm gonna click it. And you're gonna LIKE it, missy!

Caroline said...

Ohhhhhh...the excitement!!! I love a face lift. I can't wait to see your new look.

Kelly said...

sent you some love, go pick it up at my blog!

The Coconut Diaries said...

Oh, so you're supposed to have a reason to drink gin and tonic? My bad.

My designer and I are up to about 40 or so emails on edits for my new header, so here's hoping yours goes smoothly!

Sparkliesunshine said...

Well the hint is lovely. I can't wait to see it!!! :)

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

Great! Now you've got me fighting the urge not to press the HumorBlogs button.

I wish you the best in final approval of your picture. I don't know what I would have done if I couldn't have mine. It...completes me!

HURRY!!!!!!!

Hey It's Di said...

Don't you know I'm impatient and can't wait? Although I do enjoy a good tease:)

And you should know me well enough to know that if you say "Do Not" I will.

I'll be back with your grand re-opening congratulatory flowers.

Ellie said...

Wow. How hanging we are left...

for a different kind of girl said...

Stale nuggets may very well be how I got my husband to marry me. Never underestimate the power of processed meat!

"I'll be anxious to see your new look," said the girl who has had the same old standard issue blog template for nearly two years...

JD at I Do Things said...

I'm so relieved the Great Publishio was appeased with just a chicken McNugget. I'm not sure how much I could enjoy the new header stained with the blood of an innocent chicken.

I love the mystery of the unveiling! And there will be prizes!

VE said...

What IS that in the teaser?

Is it Mr. Cleans head?

Is it the planet Uranus (get it, Uranus? Never mind...)

Is it one of Tiger Woods golf balls that he accidentally hit into space?

Is it the top of the end of the tunnel where the oncoming train is?

Is it a closeup of the tip of your fingertip?

Kelly said...

ok..go and checky your mail!

Bee said...

Moon rising? I hope it's a REAL moon! ;op

Alice said...

Coconut Diaries - You're scaring me. Won't it be perfect the first time?

And thanks to you all for all the comments. Robyn and Bee are by far the warmest!

Suze's Sass said...

Oh I hope I win a prize. Pick me - pick me. Did that sound too needy? Screw it - pick me pick me!!!

QueenofPlanetHotflash said...

I can't wait to see it! Is it almost ready? Can I see it now? How about now? Is it a moon? Are we becoming moonies? Gin and tonic, here I come!

Amy said...

I wait with bated breath~ can't wait to see the new header, but I like your current one. My 8 yr old was asking where you were when that pic was taken? Do share!

Gotta go pray to Squirtle and Picachu for ya~

Kylie in Warsaw said...

Hm, I'll just be sitting here trying to guess what that photo is of.

Sue said...

OOOhh I'm in for the G&T's. Tangueray?

Mrs4444 said...

I'm excited!!! Can't wait to see it!

sinisterdan said...

I must be the last person on the planet who doesn't even have a picture on their blog.

Looking forward to seeing your new look, now that it won't be theft.
