So, I have finally decide to take the plunge. After lurking on other blogs for months, and in some cases years, I have dug up the courage to start my own. And so far things are not looking good. It took Matt (my husby) and I over twenty minutes just to come up with a title for the blog.
Some of our rejected titles include:

Tater Tot Tidings - Matt has called me a tater tot since we were dating. He calls me this because of my beautiful orange complexion. It was rejected because we didn't want to get sued by a tater tot company once this blog is famous.(Hee Hee)
Pennylane Princess - Pennylane is the name of the little community we live in. Matt came up with it and it struck me as cute at first but then I thought it sounded kind of bratty, to call myself a princess.
ExLax - because two minutes into the debate I was struck with the sudden urge.
Matt's Merry Maid - I vetoed that. No explaination needed.

The really sad thing is that's all we came up with in twenty minutes. But we finally decided on The Orange Oracle. Matt came up with it, I thought it was funny and dumb. So there you have it.
I know this entry is lame but it's late and taking the leap has scared the wit right out of me.
Rest assured I will be spending my days looking and thinking of things to share with the world.

I'm so excited and honored to be the first one to comment on your blog. I look forward to being on the receiving end of lots of wisdom handed down by the "Orange Oracle." (Good job on the title Matt, I always knew you were the smartest of the Johnson cousins (shh, don't tell Jeanna I said that :-) ) although I must say the Pennylane Princess has a nice ring too as all women should delight in our ROYALTY! I'm really looking forward to lurking on your site quite a bit and having the opportunity to get to know two of my favorite people better! Lots of love to all three of you.

When, Miss Julie, may I ask, where you going to let me in on your little secret?! Hmm?! :)
I love your blog and I can't wait to "hear" your beautiful voice more often since I hardly get to see you anymore.
