Happy Monday everyone!

The three of us are just back from a fabulous weekend at a top secret location (kidding) where we had a much needed “Blog Planning Weekend.”

So basically, Christy, Terry and I shopped some and talked, brainstormed and planned a lot about all that we hope for our little 11 Magnolia Lane corner of the web/blog world.

If you are new to 11 Magnolia Lane or haven’t read our ABOUT US page–the three of us are friends who blog here on the same site but live in different parts of the country. It’s a rare treat to be in the same place together. This blog is our fun place to share all our ideas and inspirations and we have a ball doing it.

So, I have to start with a small administrative detail before we move on to all the fun things we came up with that will soon be happening here. Thanks to Google discontinuing “Google Friend Connect” (which is just one way to stay in tune with all of the great blogs out there) we realized we are no longer showing up in the Blogger “Dashboard.” {ARGH!}

If you use Blogger Dashboard or Google Reader to read blogs, but want to continue to read Magnolia Lane, here is what you will need to do.

You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest, and subscribe by email or by Blog lovin’ on the right side of the blog.

We are also thrilled to announce we have been accepted into the BlogHer network, which should be obvious by the new look of our sidebar and top header. 🙂

We made lots of plans for upcoming series and projects this weekend. We plan to launch a DIY link party in April and have several new food/entertaining and DIY series in the works.

Of course, the whole weekend was not “all work”…Here are Christy & Terry jewelry shopping at Kate Spade.

We also spent Sunday in a photo session with Jessica Oatman of Jessica Oatman Photography. We had a total blast with Jessica and can’t wait to reveal some new pictures of the three of us.

Here is Terry blogging –or maybe “pinning”? 🙂 –while waiting for the photoshoot to begin

We can’t wait to post more about our weekend and photoshoot!


Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Hey girls!! Looks like you had a blast. You are still showing up in my Google reader if that helps. Have a good one!
