New Website Design…

Perhaps some of you have noticed my drastic change on The Misty Mountain. I have completely changed my website look! I chose to use two complementary colors (orange and blue) because I am semi in love with that look. I am also attempting to adopt better structure. This is going to be a bit bumpy (especially since I’m not done designing my website yet) but I am glad for all y’all’s patience. Thank you, guys- for following my blog, and hopefully I can start being more accommodating to what y’all want to see.

Have y’all taken my survey yet?

If you haven’t, hop over to it and vote! At the end of two weeks I’ll use the biggest voted choice and do a post on the winning thing. Basically the survey is really just a poll asking what kind of posts you most want to see. If you’d like to more of something else (not listed) then please comment on the poll with what it is. And as a side note when I mentioned photography, it more refers to very basic things. I have a photography website (as you know) where the most of photography is mentioned.

My blog header

Now that y’all have seen my header- what do you think? Do you like it? I am working on some other blog-related design stuff, so if you have suggestions- please share them!

Thank you!

The Q & A Tag

Hello!

Something a teensy bit different for today. I was tagged by Natasha of Looking Through My Lens for the Q and A Tag. I am looking forward to doing this, Natasha, and thank you for tagging me!

The 10 Questions

1) What is one of your favorite blogs?
Since I am a dreadful cheater I will give more than one 😉 . So I hope that’s okay? I generally like blogs that are in my range of interest: 
a. I like Natasha Hannu’s blogs. (looking through my lens and Natasha Ann Photography)
c. And also Allison’s blog called A Farm Girl’s Life
2) A favorite kind of candy?
I love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Oh, they are SO good. Only thing is that they are sometimes way too sweet for me. I also like fudge as a close second. 
3) If you could have any animal as a pet, what would you choose? 
A PANDA BEAR!!!! Oh, they are so cute. Mom says they are really not very nice, but how could anyone resist this face?
panda
4) What is one of your most amazing memories?
Going to my grandparent’s house and playing on their lake (tubing, swimming, jet-ski-ing) has always been a memory that I treasure. 
5) What is your favorite board\card game?
Board game: Settlers of Catan. 
Card Game: Rummy 500. 
6) Do you have a dream car?
Mostly I joke about my dream cars, but I actually really like the ones I joke about 😀 . 
I would have to say a limousine (I like hot dog cars) or a punch bug. 
7) If there was one thing you would like to get better at, what would it be?
Being a better conversationalist and putting others before myself. I would also love to get better at photography.
8) What are three countries you would like to visit someday?
a. New Zealand
b. Ireland
c. Scotland
9) Which do you like better roses or lilacs?
Roses. Sorry to be cliche, but to me–they are the most beautiful ever. (My favorite flower is actually the hydrangea, funny thing.). 
10) How would you describe your style (with fashion)?
Strangely this is probably the hardest question for me to answer, the reason being that how I WANT to dress and how I ACTUALLY dress- are very different! I actually love clothing from the 1940’s (mostly the dresses) and also dresses from the Victorian period. And for some strange reason I love prairie clothing, too! The way I dress though, typically- is skirts and t-shirts. I also wear jeans and tunics.
