An All New HEAB

by HEAB on August 27, 2010

Time to get down and dirty with some almond butter lovin’ here at Heather Eats Almond Butter! Are you ready?!?


Many thanks to Cory at Zesty Blog Consulting for all the time he spent helping me transfer my blog to a self-hosting site…and by helping, I mean he did all the work! There are still some kinks to work out, and I would love to hear your feedback. Is the blog loading fast enough? Also, with my old blog, I could respond to your comments via email, and I’m still trying to figure out how to get my replies to your inbox. However, I’m not sure if that is possible or not.

I’m planning on devoting more time to the blog, especially when we get home from our Babymoon. Some days, I might even publish two posts. How would you feel about that? I ask as I don’t want to overwhelm any readers. Also, once the HEABlet arrives in November, I plan to be a stay-at-home mom. As much as I love my career as a massage therapist, I won’t be able to work nearly as often. I’m hoping to see a few clients a month, maybe on Saturdays when CD is at home to watch the baby, but I no longer plan to work evenings. So, hopefully, I will get to spend more time with all of you.

So, here’s to an all new HEAB and the many adventures that await us both. Thanks again for your continued support…because of you, I consider my blog the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. Love you guys. 🙂


Leanne September 1, 2010 at 9:17 pm

How cute are you in that picture? AND your hair looks amazing. I love your blog and your writing style, so the more HEAB posts the better in my opinion. 🙂

HEAB September 2, 2010 at 10:05 am

Thanks so much Leanne. 🙂

Sarah August 31, 2010 at 11:55 am

I would love to hear more from you and I agree, that is an adorable picture. I love your hair! 🙂

HEAB August 31, 2010 at 8:29 pm

Thanks Sarah. 🙂

Natalie (The Sweets Life) August 30, 2010 at 3:04 pm

could there be a more adorable picture of you?!? 🙂 love it!

HEAB August 30, 2010 at 8:14 pm

Thanks Natalie. 🙂

Jennie in Alabama August 29, 2010 at 1:08 pm

Hi Heather, I’d read the occasional two a day, you tend to keep them short and sweet, and always have good photos…very readable! So, bring it on!

HEAB August 29, 2010 at 3:50 pm

Thanks Jennie.

Amanda @ BakingWithoutABox August 29, 2010 at 12:42 pm

Love the new photo and the new digs!

HEAB August 29, 2010 at 3:54 pm

Thanks Amanda!

Annie August 29, 2010 at 9:55 am

Was OOT… but the blog loaded super fast… would consider it a gift if you wrote more often… your blog is uplifting, funny, educational and poignant…. and superfun!

HEAB August 29, 2010 at 10:53 am

Thanks so much! 🙂

Mimi (Damn the Freshman 15) August 28, 2010 at 2:14 am

Love the new design! And you are mighty foxy in that picture!

ida August 27, 2010 at 11:48 pm

love the new site- it’s not too commercial looking which is so nice. And more HEAB could never be a bad thing- esp with the little one to read all about.

Kristen @ Kristen, Sweetly August 27, 2010 at 11:08 pm

Yes, all-the-time HEAB, please. 😀 And I’m right there with fartygirl, your exercise philosophy (with so many others) is really getting into my head, in an awesome way. I’m fitting in getting moving in ways I really enjoy or appreciate, instead of falling out of bed way too early to do the same routine that I ended up not caring about anymore. A nighttime walk on the treadmill with a great book was my favorite way to unwind this week.

Emilia @ Namaste Gurl August 27, 2010 at 10:34 pm

Lookin’ *classy* in that pic– Even at your peak pregnany stages. WAY TO GO 🙂

And by the way, the new site makeover looks great. Didn’t notice much change, but definitely that it’s “fancier” 🙂

Pay a visit to my blog, I’ve got little or no viewers 🙂

Hope you’re doing GREAT :)!

monicanelsonfitness August 27, 2010 at 10:05 pm

HI Heather! Great site, I am new here but I think your blog and (you) are super fabulous! I also enjoy seeing the beauty where you live. I am a trainer in LA and there is not so much nature. I grew up in CO and OR so a lot of your pics of lakes, etc, make me happy!
I know how much work a website transfer is as I just got done transferring my meal blog into my website. UGH! but it will all come together for ya:) Congrats on your pregnancy too! Have a great weekend.
Long live the Healthy Fats, Great name-HEAB, I love it!

Kate August 27, 2010 at 9:34 pm

Gorgeous pic – very Brigitte Bardot! The work will still be there when the Heablet is older:) It’s funny, after a few years at home with my kids, I returned to teaching only to find it just wasn’t for me anymore. I start massage therapy school in two weeks! Sometimes the time at home to parent is a good time to be at home with yourself & see how YOU would like to grow and change too.

Jennie in Alabama August 27, 2010 at 9:10 pm

Great new site! Love the beautiful photo of you. I love your daily blog posts, can’t wait to read more. War Eagle! 🙂

Amber@momsgottheruns August 27, 2010 at 8:32 pm

Heather! Love the updated blog site! and that photo of you is gorgeous! So cute! : D

polly August 27, 2010 at 8:22 pm

hello pumpkin pie.
I adore the new blog but would love it no matter, cause it was yours. 😀 Love you.

Heablette will be so blessed to have her mommy with her. I will never regret or take for granted being able to be home with Abbi since the day she was born. So excited for you, honey!

Tonight we made a big blueberry crumble (you have made it!! :P) and the 3 of us ate the whole dang thing. mmm.

Have a happy weekend, my beautiful friend! D and I might finally get in a date night and see a movie or go hiking this weekend. I missed him so!

Big hugs from us guys to you guys. XOXO

Scott in Ohio August 27, 2010 at 8:17 pm

Such exciting news about all the changes in HEAB-land!

We wish the best for you as things unfold in the next few months.

Having tried the blog thing, 2 posts in one day feels like a load of bricks to carry.

Selfishly, I’d much prefer to see your responses to my comments show up in my email box. 🙂

Enjoy your last weekend at Fife Lake. Is that right? Your last weekend already?

Sarah August 27, 2010 at 7:44 pm

Hi Heather!

I honestly have no idea how I came about your blog, but I read every day! I try to comment every once in awhile. I want to let you know that you are one of the most personable bloggers that I follow. We have similar pasts and eating habits and I just really respect you and your lifestyle 🙂 That picture (above) I LOVE! haha..those nut butters, get me everytime 😉 Thanks for all you do to make our days a little brighter.

Abbey August 27, 2010 at 7:30 pm

Yay! It loaded very quickly and looks great! Love the idea of two posts a day. I am in my last semester of school and the reprieve I get by reading your blog is sweet, but so short-lived. Sounds divine to me! Maybe you’ll show us some pics of the baby’s nursery? Bet it’s so cute!

nicole August 27, 2010 at 6:42 pm

I LOVE reading your posts! I look forward to them daily. Two sounds great to me!!

Laura I. August 27, 2010 at 6:42 pm

I devour every post you write and even went back and read all the archives. I’ve gotten so many great food combo ideas from you!

kellyO August 27, 2010 at 6:34 pm

Love the new blog!

Lindsay August 27, 2010 at 6:32 pm

I love the new Heab. You are an amazing blogger and will be an amazing mom. I am sure that you are going to mold your little peanut into an amazing woman aswell. Good Luck with the rest of the pregnancy and I will be ready to ready all of the posts that you feel inclined to let us read!! 🙂

Emily August 27, 2010 at 6:27 pm

Site looks fine and that picture is too much fun. 🙂

Pure2raw twins August 27, 2010 at 5:50 pm

Love the site!!!! And love the picture of you ; )
We are excited to share your journey into motherhood.

alli August 27, 2010 at 5:43 pm

fabulous news!

that picture is so, so, so CUTE! I love it!

lindsay August 27, 2010 at 5:08 pm

Everything looks amazing. I must know where did you get your dress? Looks so good on you and I want one like it! and please, more HEAB posts would be great. You brighten my day and make a difference. 🙂

Amanda @ The Hungry Wanderers August 27, 2010 at 4:47 pm

Love the photo 🙂 You look adorable!

Kayla @ Let's Live Wholesome August 27, 2010 at 4:38 pm

Yay for you, stay at home mommy! How very exciting 🙂 I’d venture to say any and all of HEAB is wonderful, 1 or 2 posts a day, doesn’t matter.

Rachael August 27, 2010 at 4:23 pm

Such a beautiful photo! Looking forward to more HEAB, for sure.

Paula August 27, 2010 at 4:21 pm

Wonderful changes! The site seems great and I am so happy for all that is ahead of you!!

Mary @ Bites and Bliss August 27, 2010 at 4:18 pm

Love the new site look, Heather! And if you want to post twice a day, that’d be great! And if not that’s awesome as well. 🙂 We all know you’ll probably have your hands full with the HEABlet when she arrives so whatever works with your schedule of course!

Jill August 27, 2010 at 4:08 pm

Hi Heather!
The blog seems to be loading fine to me…and I don’t think two posts would be overwhelming. If people are too overwhelmed/busy at a particular time to read blogs, then no one is forcing them to do so 😉

BTW, Las Paletas sounds amazing! We will definitely have to go when you get back!

Lauren August 27, 2010 at 3:06 pm

Lookin’ beautiful as always, Heather! The site is great! So happy for you about being a stay at home mom, I hope to as well when we have little bambinos!

Maggie August 27, 2010 at 2:55 pm

I love that picture. And the blog looks great. I am probably in the minority, but I like blogs that post once a day (or less!). But I think I could do 2 a day from you HEAB! I can’t keep up with the ones that post any more than twice a day.

Ana August 27, 2010 at 2:54 pm

Love the new blog too!!
I hope you figure it out how to reply to the comments here and send it directly to the e-mail too, I always thought that was so cool!

Laura August 27, 2010 at 2:48 pm

That pic is amazing! It could be used for an advertisement!!!! xx

Ashlee August 27, 2010 at 2:46 pm

I love the site! It is so clean and organized! It just looks so fresh and it was super quick loading! I am jealous of your babymoon. Enjoy every minute of it!


anne August 27, 2010 at 2:27 pm

Love the new site and your cute photo! Yeah for stay at home moms too!

Nikki August 27, 2010 at 2:21 pm

Definitely loving the new website. It looks nice, you have a great picture to go with it, andddd you seem so excited by this fresh start. 2 posts would not be a problem with me at all, but do what you are able to do, expecially once the HEABlet is born.

Congrats on the new blog!

melissa @ the delicate place August 27, 2010 at 1:55 pm

wow, the design is much more streamlined. i love it! but my husband is a web designer so i have learned to geek out at this kind of stuff 😉

Caitlin August 27, 2010 at 1:50 pm

Looks lovely! I will read as many times as you post.

Congratulations on deciding to become a stay-at-home mom! That is going to be one fun adventure.

Kaz August 27, 2010 at 1:44 pm

The blog looks great! It’d be awesome if you felt like posting multiple times in the day. 😀

Okay, I have hair envy now. You are so gorgeous in that picture!

Brooke - One Healthy Cookie August 27, 2010 at 1:42 pm

Yay, this post showed up in my Google Reader! 🙂 I love the picture. That’s pretty much what I look like every time I’m in the kitchen…

Tina August 27, 2010 at 1:31 pm

First off, that pic rocks! And I’m loving the site. It loaded just fine for me. 🙂

Also, I switched to writing 2 shorter posts a day recently and feel it makes things much more manageable. I usually have one thing/topic to share and go in and get it typed and done. When I did one a day I would have so much to say by the end of the day that it would take a lot of time organizing the post, wondering if it was too long, etc.

Lastly, staying at home is fabulous! That’s what I do and it helps me work on my blog, spend time with the wee one, and still do some other things on the side (like tutoring a couple hours a week). Very doable and a great balance I’ve experienced. I love all your thoughts!

Annie@stronghealthyfit August 27, 2010 at 1:30 pm

I love the new blog! everything looks great.

Stephanie August 27, 2010 at 1:13 pm

You are beautiful 🙂 That’s all. Oh, and the blog loads nice and fast.

Dani August 27, 2010 at 12:56 pm

Wow, you look stunning! The new blog rocks too!

Chandra August 27, 2010 at 12:54 pm

Love the new design…it loads nicely for me.

Hangry Pants August 27, 2010 at 12:53 pm

I love new blog designs. 🙂 Fabulous and I love the picture of you with the jar. 🙂

Teri August 27, 2010 at 12:52 pm

The blog looks and is working great! I would love to see more posts from you! I look forward to reading it everyday, so the more the better!

You look absolutely stunning in the pic, LOVE IT! 🙂

Pearl Lee August 27, 2010 at 12:49 pm

love the new website and you are a gorgeous mama!

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) August 27, 2010 at 12:46 pm

Your new blog is gorgeous!! Loaded fast and just fine. It’s crisp, clear, and beautiful, but I always thought your old site was one of the nicest sites out there, too. Non cluttered, crisp, clean, sharp…totally what I would love my site to be like…ahhh, if only I had the balls to jump into Wordpress. But I dont. LOL.

You, being a SAHM with a newborn and 2x a day blogging…I think that’s a great goal. I think if you are able to blog 1x/day with a newborn THAT’s a great goal. I think whatever you can do with the blog without stressing out, is fabulous 🙂


Evan Thomas August 27, 2010 at 12:44 pm

I love it! Honestly, I’m always a little wary when people say they’re updating their blog. I just don’t love change that much. But I think you’ve kept all the good things and totally modernized what looked outdated and now it looks great!

I’ve experimented with posting 2x a day, even 3x a day sometimes, and I still go back to once a day. I think if you have something great to share twice a day, that’s great and go for it. But I hated feeling that pressure to post when I had nothing to post about.

Meghan August 27, 2010 at 12:34 pm

I love the new site-looks great. I actually am in the minority (it seems) but I really like one good post a day from the blogs I read. I feel like it allows people who cannot check blogs multiple times a day to feel like they are current, plus it allows more time for comments and conversations to start. Either way though, I will keep reading!

Ruth August 27, 2010 at 12:33 pm

The more HEAB, the merrier (although don’t feel obligated, I’m sure it’s a TON of work!). The site looks very nice.

Shanna, like Banana August 27, 2010 at 12:13 pm

The site looks incredible! And great pic!

Katie August 27, 2010 at 12:04 pm

I love the new site!!! Very classy. No problems with loading and it came to my reader without changing anything.

Taylor August 27, 2010 at 11:56 am

you’re so gorgeous! as is the new blog. muy muy bueno!

Sarah Jayne August 27, 2010 at 11:53 am

I love it!! Congrats!! Sounds liek the initial transfers are going superbly 🙂

Vanessa August 27, 2010 at 11:53 am

I look forward to reading you blog morning. I love to to read more. Bring them on!

janetha g. August 27, 2010 at 11:50 am

congrats on the move! i am sure things will all run smoothly, zesty is a genius. i would, of course, love to see more posts a la HEAB. that is so great that you are able to be a SAHM. i cannot WAIT to see that little nut butter lovin’ runt! hope you and CD and the pups have a great weekend. lots of love.

whit August 27, 2010 at 11:47 am

Lurve the new look! I also lurve that you will be a SAHM. My dream job. 😉

wendy @ ABCs and Garden Peas August 27, 2010 at 11:35 am

My baby was born in November, too. Such a nice time of year for a baby, but then, when isn’t?

I am in the process of transitioning back to full time work because my husband is in danger of losing his job, and I need to make sure we have health care. It is breaking my heart, and I am often in tears lately. I’m missing so much time with my boy, and it may mean I have to quit blogging. 🙁

I’m so happy for you that you will be able to stay home….enjoy every second of it. Everyone tells you how fast it goes, and you think you know, but it’s faster than you could ever imagine. Love on that little Heablet every chance you get!

Sorry, a bit emotional today…

lena August 27, 2010 at 11:24 am

the more post the merrier! any number you fancy! that is a great pic for a great nut butter!

Tabitha August 27, 2010 at 11:12 am

It looks great as does your amazing hair, what a fab photograph.

Kelly August 27, 2010 at 11:11 am

Love the pic of you! New site showed up in my reader, super happy!

BroccoliHut August 27, 2010 at 11:11 am

Oh, the magic of Zesty! He helped me out with my blog too. Just to reiterate what my fellow commenters have said…LOVE the picture! Perfect.
Looking forward to even more awesome HEAB posts.

Gloria August 27, 2010 at 11:09 am

That picture is AMAZING! I am all for 2 daily doses of Almond Butter lovin 🙂 I feel the same way about how I want to raise my children. I can’t imagine not being home with them all day when they are that young!

kyla August 27, 2010 at 11:08 am

The site looks great! I would love to read two posts from you a day. It’d be a real treat!

Pesia Lenczner August 27, 2010 at 11:07 am


I don’t usually write, but I check your blog daily! Nice new look, great picture of you!


Mama Pea August 27, 2010 at 11:07 am

Beautiful! And the site doesn’t look bad either. Thank the Lord I’m not a single guy, because I’d get no one with these cheesy lines.

I do have to disagree…I have a feeling something else coming is about to be the most rewarding thing you’ve ever done.

Have a great weekend, HEAB!

Kathi August 27, 2010 at 11:05 am

Love the new site and it loaded up just fine for me! I look forward to sharing all the wonderful adventures to come with you!

Jen Juliana August 27, 2010 at 10:55 am

Love the new look and the photo of you!

Shannon August 27, 2010 at 10:54 am

LOVE that photo 🙂 one day i’ll move to a self-hosted site… seems to be loading fast 🙂

eatmovelove August 27, 2010 at 10:48 am

Thanks HEAB. Seen your reply in my email – but not here? I agree with you – everyone should be able to do what they want and I think all the blogs are great no matter what anyhow!

Josie August 27, 2010 at 10:46 am


elise August 27, 2010 at 10:45 am

I’ve been pondering the switch to a self hosted site for a while now…plus cory seems to know his shiz. i take it you have only the best things to say? do you use a mac or pc to post? do you use live writer? i really think i could be ready to ditch the wordpress format. im just afraid i wouldnt know how to even maintain a new site without some tech guru on speed dial at all hours of the day. thoughts?

denise August 27, 2010 at 10:33 am

Yes! That picture is awesome! I <3 the baby belly!

sweetersalt August 27, 2010 at 10:30 am

Love it – looks great! Love that picture of you too, great print – retro and fun!


Monica August 27, 2010 at 10:28 am

Love the new Web site!

Your posts are always great, so two-a-days would be equally awesome! It will be fun to see your little one throughout your posts! 🙂

MarathonVal August 27, 2010 at 10:27 am

To be totally honest, most of the time I would say that I prefer just one post a day (or less) from bloggers since I get overwhelmed when my Reader gets really full, but you are one of the few exceptions.. 2 HEABs a day would be great by me! 🙂

Jessica R. August 27, 2010 at 10:26 am

Heather the website looks awesome!

MaryZ August 27, 2010 at 10:21 am

You look beautiful!
Site loads quickly for me…and the more HEAB the better:)

Sylvia August 27, 2010 at 10:21 am

I ran across this wonderful fruit yesterday at the market…

Do they have those in Nashville? Might be something to expect in your package next week;)

sonia August 27, 2010 at 10:17 am

heather you look so stinking adorable! I love your new blog! <3

julie August 27, 2010 at 10:12 am

the new site is awesome 🙂 and you look friggn gorgeous in that picture!!!

i think you should post 12 times a day haha but that’s just me..

Maren August 27, 2010 at 10:09 am

YAY! I would LOVE to hear from you twice a day! Also, the page loaded very quickly for me and loaded on Google Reader! It’s great that you’ve decided to be a stay-at-home mom so you and the HEABlet can spend all your time together!! But I also think it’s great that you are going to keep doing therapy on occasion because you never know when you’ll decide you want to go back full-time! 🙂

Kat @ August 27, 2010 at 10:07 am

The blog looks great! And I love, love, love your picture! 🙂 Best wishes to you with all the exciting changes going on in your life!

Claire C August 27, 2010 at 10:07 am

Yay!The blog looks great!I’m so excited for you and looking forward to more blog time from you:-)cc

Dorry August 27, 2010 at 10:06 am

Yay! This is such a great change and I’m so excited for you to be able to focus more on the blog. It looks great! I always expect your post in the morning but definitely wouldn’t be opposed to 2 a day. 🙂

Alyssa August 27, 2010 at 10:05 am

Heather! The blog looks great! I love your site and would thoroughly enjoy 2 posts a day 🙂 Love the pic too!


Melanie August 27, 2010 at 10:03 am

Twice-daily posting would be happiness and joy! And I think the stay-at-home mom decision is great. I think it’s one of the best things you can do:). I like the new site; it is streamlined and it loaded fine for me. And still showed up on Google Reader, so you should be good there!


ps…I am knitting:):):)

S @ August 27, 2010 at 10:03 am

New HEAB, no problem! And I *love* two posts a day–keep it coming! The anticipation is always so amazing as I go into the RSS feed…: “will she eat almond butter today? WILL SHE?” 😉

Liz @ Tip Top Shape August 27, 2010 at 9:58 am

The blog looks nice! It loaded at a normal speed and I would LOVE if you posted twice a day. Not overwhelming at all!

Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter August 27, 2010 at 9:57 am

Yay. I love the site. I received a reply to my comment in my inbox yesterday at 4:30 if that helps.

VeggieGirl August 27, 2010 at 9:56 am

Gorgeous blog look! So fresh and so clean, clean.

That photo of you “rocks my face off” 😛

Michelle (@ Housewife in the Raw) August 27, 2010 at 9:51 am

I’m thinking that the HEABlet will surpass your blog in the ‘most rewarding thing I’ve ever done,’ at least until she hits the pre-teen years. 🙂

I love your blog and look forward to each of your posts.

Nicole @ yuppie yogini August 27, 2010 at 9:51 am

The new bloggie looks great–very clean. As far as more posts..the more the better!

Lauren at KeepItSweet August 27, 2010 at 9:50 am

I like the site, not overcrowded or anything. I also love your dress in tha picture!

Jess @ Jessica is Getting Fit August 27, 2010 at 9:50 am

I love the new site lady! It looks so good and it loads faster for me than the old HEAB!

Sarah R August 27, 2010 at 9:50 am

It looks wonderful! So clean and neat. At the picture of you is gorgeous. Everything loaded for me just fine 🙂 How exciting that you get to stay home with the HEABlet. You’ll be a fantastic mother.

Heather (Heather's Dish) August 27, 2010 at 9:49 am

cheers to the new HEAB! i loved it before…even more now 🙂 i can’t wait to read about the mommy adventures!

Erica August 27, 2010 at 9:48 am

Is that not the cutest picture of you ever? Love it. The blog looks great. Zesty- you rock! Your work is AMAZINGGGGGGGG.

Christine August 27, 2010 at 9:48 am

That’s great–so exciting! I look forward to getting updates 1+ times a day!

Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday August 27, 2010 at 9:48 am

Love it!

As for multiple posts per day, I like that if the content is good and you have a couple of things that you really want to post. Otherwise, I get a bit bored reading blogs multiple times a day if the blogger seems to be stretching for content.

brandi August 27, 2010 at 9:47 am

I love it 😉 And I’m so happy that you’ll be able to stay at home with the HEABlette! That’s my dream one day – stay at home mom 🙂

Beth @ DiningAndDishing August 27, 2010 at 9:47 am

Sounds like a very exciting new chapter in your life! Best of luck to you Heather – looking forward to following along!

Jessica @ How Sweet August 27, 2010 at 9:45 am

LOVE the new look! 🙂

And your plans. 😉

caronae August 27, 2010 at 9:36 am

I love the new HEAB just as I loved the old HEAB. 🙂 Post whenever you want, I’ll be here (probably less commenting once school starts though!). I don’t think more HEAB could be a bad thing….

You look absolutely gorg in that pic, by the way!

Amber at Berlin's Whimsy August 27, 2010 at 9:24 am

What a cute photo of you! That color looks great on you. 🙂 The blog looks great, too!

I’m happy for you that you’ll be staying home with the HEABlet—I bet you’ll love spending so much time watching her grow. I look forward to hearing more from you here, too. Best wishes…

brianne August 27, 2010 at 9:21 am

so happy about you staying at home. even though we’re not pregnant yet – i go thru a train of thoughts on that issue all the time – excited to see how much you enjoy it!

Christina August 27, 2010 at 9:16 am

The site loaded super fast! Way to go Zesty 🙂

I think we would all love to hear from you twice/day!

Gracie August 27, 2010 at 9:13 am

Love it!! I just noticed you got the second foodbuzz ad…and I must say that it’s barely noticeable. For the most part it still *looks* like the original HEAB, which is a very good thing 🙂

allison @ livingoneday August 27, 2010 at 9:12 am

First off, love that pic. Adorable!

Second… LOVE the look of the blog!

I would love it if you posted more than once per day, I love reading your blog so I will surely read along 🙂

Of course, if it’s too busy with the Heablet, I understand 🙂


Michelle August 27, 2010 at 8:56 am

The blog loaded fine for me. I love your hair in the pic, very pretty.

Congrats on being a stay at home mom.

2 post per day would be awesome!

Sylvia August 27, 2010 at 8:48 am

Aww, that picture of you is so awesome! Wish I was that photogenic;)

I on the other hand, would LOVE to read two posts from you a day. Keep them coming, girl! And while mustard may have a mistress, it doesn’t know that I’ve also been lovin’ on Ebay, haha<3

Wow, that was quick! Looks great! You decided to stay with the same header – so the biggest change I see is really just the writing.

I think it is very special that you are able to say that this is the most rewarding and valuable experience to you. Well, y’know, barring the baby and all that “realllly important stuff” LOL. I’m still waiting for your book anyways….;)!

I was also curious – since your one of the “big” bloggers – what your take is/was on bloggers with ads/promotions/shops on their sites?? I know Jenna (ELR) took a stance before saying she would not longer be doing it and her blog was going in a different direction (for her own personal decision). Or promoting products/ doing give-aways for companies…
Some people felt that was a “backlash” against blogs thad DO do that and/or went to the Summit and free swag, etc.

Interested in your thoughts on that

Meg August 27, 2010 at 8:44 am

LOVE this, and that picture of you = beautiful and nutty 😀

Jackie August 27, 2010 at 8:44 am

I look forward to your new posts every time I check out your blog,
so personally – the more the better! Keep them all coming, but don’t forget to rest and have a fun time once your little baby arrives!

Carbzilla August 27, 2010 at 8:42 am

Site loaded super fast for me.

Personally, I wouldn’t need two posts a day. That seems like a lot of pressure to put on yourself. If I’m overlooking some behind-the-scenes blog success factors, then ignore me, but in the big picture I think one a day is fabulous!

That is one of my fave pictures of you!

Love the new blog and how cute are you in that picture. Only HEAB can make almond butter look sexy. Haha! So excited for you about the HEABlet…finally another blogger mommy! And I’m totally jealous you get to stay at home. I’ll just live vicariously through you, okay?! 🙂

Valerie @ City|Life|Eats August 27, 2010 at 8:35 am

The site looks great 🙂 And congrats on all the changes ahead 🙂

Felicia August 27, 2010 at 8:22 am

Love the new look! And I def would not mind two posts a day- your blog is at the top of my list that I love to read up on, so I would be so happy! And yay for being stay at home momma, I hope to be able to do that when the day comes. Enjoy the rest of your babymoon!

Heather August 27, 2010 at 8:21 am

Love the new site, love the photo, love the idea of two posts a day! And thank you for warning that we might need to resubscribe. Google Reader indeed did not show any new posts for you this morning, so I knew to come and resubscribe! 🙂

Stephanie August 27, 2010 at 8:10 am

Heather, The website looks awesome and so do you! Best of luck at home with your new boss 🙂

fartygirl August 27, 2010 at 8:05 am

Your blog – as well as many others – has changed my life! Just yesterday I took a really long walk and thought of you and your exercise philosophy. Today, man am I feeling it! Walking is amazing. So are you, Heabs. Thanks for your hard work.

Holly @ couchpotatoathlete August 27, 2010 at 7:59 am

Heather the new site looks great! It looks so polished and the font looks crisp and clear.

I am so happy to hear that you’ll be a stay at home mom — the HEABlet is one lucky kid!

Melanie August 27, 2010 at 7:55 am

You are too cute! I’m so excited for you.

Marina August 27, 2010 at 7:52 am

I love the new look!
And you look so cute on that picture 🙂
Can’t wait for more posts!

Marisa @ Loser for Life August 27, 2010 at 7:52 am

Looks great, Heather!

Exciting times await you come November! Being a stay-at-home mom has been a rewarding experience for me!

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) August 27, 2010 at 7:50 am

Love the new set up. It loaded instantly on my computer.

I’m all for stay at home mom if you can beat the system and do it! You are going to be busy!

More HEAB would be great. I for one would love to see more postings each day. You and the Heablet could both post about your day!

HEAB August 27, 2010 at 7:52 am

Thanks Carolyn. 🙂

Melissa R August 27, 2010 at 7:37 am

Love the new site and the blog is loading fine for me. I like the idea of sometimes having two posts a day as well.

Hope you have a great day! 🙂
