Best in Blog has a New Look

Have you noticed my new blog-look? It's a subtle change so you are excused if it slid right on by you.
Look closely and you will notice a new header. New fonts. New sidebar page-clickers. Oh yes and a new button for Best in Blog too. I really didn't like the other one much. This one fits in with the rest of my bloggy style so much better. What do you think? Better, right?
[Friday at the Park with a friend - always the best kind of Fun]
Would it help your week begin with a laugh to hear that a chair collapsed under my weight on Saturday?
So very Shallow Hal
We were at a birthday party at this kids indoor play-place and I was kneeling on a (very old flimsy pathetically weak) chair to get a good view of the kids on the giant slide, while chatting to my friend and her family. 
All of a sudden *WHUMP* 
Down I go.
The welds on the seat just gave out and there I am on the floor.
Not embarrassing at all really. Just another blog-worthy moment in my life.
Who am I kidding? I was mortified!

If this doesn't get me downloading the Couch-to-5-K challenge for my iPod, I don't know what will.
So there you have it. The latest in Embarrassing Moments brought to you by GreatFunTV.
(Really SO glad nobody was videoing the party right then).

Moving right along.

it was either "in goal" or on the sideline. Difficult for the usual goal-scoring soccer star.]

Now that you've heard my Worst Moment from the weekend, I should probably cheer myself up with this little snippet from Sunday morning, which was probably my Best.

I'm in the kitchen and Miss fab has just been ordered to wipe the makeup off her face (which she put on in honour of a visit with her Bestie). She skips into the kitchen and says with all the confidence of a gorgeous 8-year-old: "I don't even need makeup to look pretty, aye mum?"
"Absolutely! Not when you're young and beautiful like you, anyway," I say.
"Awww, you're beautiful too mum!" my darling girl replies. My heart starts melting...
Then the clincher:
"...And I know lots of mums who look older but they're younger than you!"

I can tell you I hugged that girl and squeezed her and thanked God for such a kind encouraging kid.
I may be feeling every inch of 42 but my daughter thinks I'm still young(looking) and pretty. Shucks.

Best of Me Last Week
In between updating my blog-look and creating new buttons I managed to squeeze out a few decent posts; most notably...
I also created a brand new Movie Theme Night Page... with all our Movie reviews and theme night ideas collected in one place....

Best of You Last Week
It's been a couple of weeks since listed my favourites, so here they are from the past two linkies...
Quite a mix in there, but those were my favourites. Will it be your turn next week? Well, No. Not unless you link up...

How to join in with my "Best in Blog" linky.
The "Best in Blog" Linky opens at 7am every Monday (NZ time*) and closes midnight Friday.
You don't have to write a special post, or take a photo on a theme or anything that requires extra work...
All you have to do is pick your favourite post from the past week (the one you are most proud of) and share it with us. I will feature my favourites on next week's Best in Blog.

Just one thing you need to do before you link up... Can you please dress your post with this (brand new)  pretty button I've made so your readers can find our linky too?

Best in Blog Linky

Thankyou kindly!

(Oh, and please leave us a comment telling us why you picked this one... even if it was because it was your only one, hahaha!)

*For some of you US readers, that will be sometime on Sunday!
