New Cellar

Ah. You found me amidst the wreckage.

I grasp your hand just before you slip beneath the freezing electronic waters, for you and I and Celine Dion and this cyber-slab of wall paneling shall sail towards a new, DiCaprio-free day!

Welcome to our new cellar, fellow refugees. We are all going to need some alcohol after the trauma of moving, but for the moment, I'm thrilled that you clicked over from the old site as it crumbled around us over the weekend. If you're looking for the original BlondeChampagne, behold.

Woot! Another Wordpress convert. Love the topside new logo.

Yay, MB! I'll miss the old, but I am so happy to have the new!

On a side note, sorry Jeff didn't finish the race today. I was actually rooting for him today since my guy is his teammate now. Maybe next week in CA will be better!

happy sitewarming, mb! i'd follow you anywhere, and clearly this raft is big enough for us all!

We'd follow you anywhere, Mary Beth! Sorry about the site crumbling on you... Get married, move to VA and you literally start all over again!

OOh, the new heading makes me feel like I just opened up a rapper's fridge on MTV Cribs! Where's the Cristal?

Hi MB!
Glad to know we all made it safely into the lifeboat. I deleted my old desktop icon with a bit of wistful sadness, but not to worry.....my new icon is safely in place!

Sorry to hear about that. What happened?

Well, you know us faithful readers; where you go we will follow :-)

Yay for new digs!

Wow, you don't look for one day and the whole site just up and moved.

Concidententally, my office moved this weekend too.

Trying to adjust is gonna be hard but at least here no one locked all my desk items in the closet with just 2 keys. (I put my stuff in the closet so was safe for the move and they locked the closet. Not bad except the keys are on vacation in FL till March 30.)

At least I can look out my new window, instead of starting at my empty desk.

Kell.

Hey MB! Just checking in to let you know I made it here safely! As long as you are here to entertain, the location in cyberspace isn't the important part. Glad you rescued the archives though - that is important!!

Kayla and I are here! We are newly aunting and uncling, so we'll be looking to you for advice, seeing as how you are The Best Aunt Ever. :)

as always, your faithful shall follow...

Good luck sorting out the website stuff...I don't envy you. But I have bookmarked your new site!!

See, I knew I always liked you. You will LOVE aunting and uncling!

Congrats on the new home. It's quite lovely. Love the header and looking forward to many, many awesome posts.

Hey, MB!
I've finally made the switch too! Welcome to your new site (I like that this one lets me comment). I'd send you something as a site-warming gift, but my recent cyber-sent files seem to be finding their way into cyber-black holes! So I won't risk it, and simply leave you a happy comment, smiley face and all. =) You're the best!

I made it too! YAY all shiny and new!
Now what do the non alcohol drinkers get in this celebration? Got any of that sparkling stuff?
