Formerly "Not Just A Hockey Mom"

"Not JUST a Hockey Mom" has changed her blog layout.  Don't worry, I am still a hockey mom.  One could say I am "pretty purplexing" hockey mom!


I hired a company called Sweet Simplicity Designs. Liz is the graphic designer and has been wonderfully patient with all the questions I have had.  She is so talented and I would recommend her to anyone who wants a fresh new look to their blog.


When I first decided to do a blog make over I had no idea what I was looking for. I wanted to change my blog title even though I have had it for years.  I wanted it to be more about me instead of a hockey mom.  Not that being a hockey mom is a bad thing.

Liz helped me pick out a color scheme. My BFF, Heather and I brainstormed over new titles until we found the perfect one.

How did I come up with the name??

  • The name is a play on the color purple (in case it wasn't obvious).  Purple is my favorite color (I'm sure THAT was obvious).  
  • My husband says I am one confusing woman!  My bipolar has me swinging up, down and every which way - so I would agree with him. (Shh! Don't tell him I said that)!

  6. I like the new name better than the old one. Nice look too. You look like you lost weight (how many points was that comment worth?).
    I'm not sure I have a favorite color. Purple Popsicles are great though. You're too young to remember purple people eaters. It was an obscure song.

  10. It looks great Tami. I read it via Goodreader so generally miss out on the 'pretties'. The new title is cool too.
