A plea for help

Okay, so plea may be too strong of a word. It makes me sound a little desperate. And I’m not. But I do need some help from you, my lovely friends.

For the first few years of it’s life, this wee ol’ blog was called “Lucy’s Life”. Plain, simple, and fitting. I am Lucy (well, no, I’m not … but if you’ve been around long enough you’ve probably figured that one out) and this blog is about my life. Makes sense, right?

Then, when Miss Evalyn came along I decided to change things up a bit and give this blog some new life. Thus, Me, E and Baby Makes Three was born.

But, uhh, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past five months you probably have figured out that this name no longer applies. It is no longer Me, and and Baby. We are no longer three.

But, for some reason, Me, E, Crazy Cakes Toddler and Baby Makes Four just doesn’t have the same ring to it. Know what I’m saying?

I need a new blog name. And so far I haven’t thought of any great ideas (blame the pregnancy brain) so I’m hoping you may be able to spark something for me. My criteria are that it shouldn’t include our names or the number of people in our family. Because, well, clearly we’ve determined that those things don’t stay the same for long around here.

Should I go back to my roots and resurrect Lucy’s Life? Something new? Something fresh?

IDEAS, PEOPLE! GIVE ME IDEAS!

*I haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about this but maybe, just maybe, there will be a wonderful prize if someone comments with a fantabulous idea that I either decide to use or inspires me in some way.

I know this is going to make me sound really dumb, and it is going to show that while I love your tweets, I rarely read yours or anyone's blog. It isn't just you! I really only have time for 140 words or less.

Buuuut...I thought that E was for Evalyn, so that the blog was you, her, and your second pregnancy/baby.

Allie said...

Aunt Shelley said...

(Blog) Writer's Cramp - penning the stories of us

I don't know...just trying to think of something that will last through a few years

Crystal Seed said...

I like the Me plus 3...that's got a good ring to it. Or....E and Me + 2 More?
Whatever you come up with will be fabulous!

Lindsey said...

Richard Cramp? Cutoffs, Camo, and C(r)amp?

Jackie said...

I was wondering when this was going to come around......I like Lucy's Life. But it sounds like you want something new, so I am not really of any help now am I? :)

abi said...

maybe something like "Me & E: stories about our life and family" ??? Or "I love my life {by Lucy}" ? Sorry - I can't think of much either....probably because I'm tired and need to head to bed.

I have just started reading your blog but here are my suggestions:
Lucy's Nest
The Nest
Me, E and our little family
Me, Myself and my family
They are just my suggestions :) hope that they help

Kelly said...

Your 'about you' says you enjoy the simple things in life and that is what your blog is about. What about the name....Lucy Living Simple.

Jen @ Canadian Rhapsody said...

What about Me, E & Our Growing Family?

Or Lucy's Legacy
Or Lucy, the Dude, & Our Brood (or Me & the Dude & Our Brood)


If you do go back to Lucy's Life, maybe you can have a tag underneath that keeps it current.

Gina said...

You got some good suggestions! Still looking or did you settle?

Tricia's Tellings said...

i like Jen @ Canadian Rhapsody with Lucy, the Dude and our brood :)

i do like the original lucy's life as well

Nicole said...

How about "Don't Cramp my Style" or "Cramping my Style". Although I love all the Evalyn posts, I miss some of the old Lucy ones, as well.

Ashley said...

I like Erin & Jen's suggestions. Something along the lines of:

Me, E, and Our Family
Lucy, the Dude, & Our Brood

Plenty of room to grow with both of those!
