The New Site is LIVE!!! Follow me on over!

I am ELATED to announce that the new site, ACCORDINGTOAME.COM is now LIVE!  

Thanks to the amazing work of The Blog Salon, we have a fantastic new site set up. She took my ridiculous list of "requirements" and bullet points of inspiration, two (!) Pinterest boards of Inspiration, and my incessant harassment via email and made it work perfectly.  I was looking for a more polished vibe around here, and she captured it perfectly. Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!

Head on over and check it out!  For now, anyway, this site will remain active, for the archives, but new posts will be over there from now on.  Everything should be over there, but formatting might be an issue.  I am working on fresh posts and figuring out the ins and outs of Wordpress, but hopefully I'll be back at it like usual soon. I have a lot of drafts saved and waiting. 

Let me know what you think!

That doesn't look like it's "on plan" now does it?  How are we almost halfway through July already? Not that I am complaining, because in like 2 weeks I'll be on another GIRL'S WEEKEND chillin' out, maxxin' out (credit credit cards) and nommin' on Juicy Nookies. Sans bun (then it counts for the most part!!!) With Sweet Potato Fries (man, they have some AMAZING fries at this joint!)

Must Have ::: Nordstrom Anniversary 2014 ShortList

I don't know why I am such a madwoman about this sale every year...but I am.  I am already foaming at the mouth over a select few items in this year's pre-select catalog for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Wedding Wednesday ::: Lessons from a Wife of 9 Years

Somehow 9 years has managed to go by since my wedding day.  It's been an adventure, but at least I have a best friend to experience all the ups and downs of life with.

Tech Time ::: Google Voice Transcription Fail

Photo by {accordingtoame}

I am still pretty sold on Google Voice, after my intro review last year. It's been a great move for me to incorporate that into my businesses and really, in general, into my life. One of those reasons I still love it is the transcriptions of voicemail when I miss a call and a message is left. I said in the review, it's not always an accurate representation of the message that was left. And today's post is really just to share this HILARIOUSLY awful Google Voice transcription of a voicemail. 

I am in the process of fulfilling some orders and working on the Wordpress transition for the blog. But this transcription has been making me literally laugh out loud since I got it last week so I felt it had to be shared.
