FACEBOOK? FOR REAL??

Hello!!

IF YOU ARE HERE FOR THE FABULOUS DEBBIE'S "NEWBIE" PARTY, YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!!

 Debbiedoo’s blogging and blabbing

SO, I'VE LINKED TO THIS POST, FIRST TO COMPLAIN ABOUT HOW HARD IT IS TO BE A NEWBIE!!  AND, BECAUSE I WANTED TO SHOW YOU ALL THAT I AM UNPACKING, AND TRYING TO DECORATE!!

THANKS FOR VISITING!  I HOPE YOU COME BACK!!  IF YOU FRIEND ME, I WILL DEFINATELY FRIEND YOU!  IF YOU "LIKE" MY FAN PAGE, I WILL LIKE YOU BACK ON FACEBOOK!!

SO......
Have you seen the "facebook" badge on the left side of my blog?  That is right!!  You aren't seeing things!!  I made a facebook page!!  BUT, as usual, nothing is easy, and it always turns into a fiasco!  Wanna hear about it??

OK.  So, my blog designer, the fabulous Karen, talked me through making my page.  It was supposed to be a facebook "fan" page only.  But, I am a facebook dork.  I started asking people to be my friend, instead of asking them to "like" my fan page!  And, I couldn't figure out 20 other things, so I talk to my pal Christi (who you can find at facebook "Christi Hubbart", and of course, IDK how to give you a link to her page).  She gives me some help, and I move on.  I talk to a pal from Scotland, Helen, and she helps me with getting my blog to my fan page. But, now I don't know how to get to my friend Alison's "network blogs" thing!!!  And, in the end, I have a facebook page, and FAN PAGE!!!  So, if you are interested, just click on that badge I told you about on the left, and "Like" me!!  Because I {heart} all of you!!!

SO, after spending the last 4 days working on something that literally took my 14 year old son 5 minutes to do, I also had to try to make my house look more like a home, rather than something a tornado hit.  I got a bunch accomplished, but it's far from done.  I took a picture of my foyer to show you all!! 
I know, there is a box in the picture.  That is just proof, that I am actively unpacking!!


Here is a picture of my sign above the front door.


This is my antique table, that I got a few years back.  I stripped off the old paint, sanded it, had my husband do the hard stuff (making everything sturdy and adding the shelf at the bottom) then I stained and painted it, and I peeled some of the paint while it was drying, to get that old look.  It was broken, and painted an odd shade of green when I got it. 

And, that's all for today.  Why am I always such a menace!!! 
Have any of you had this much trouble with facebook?
