(French phrase for “When Pig’s Fly”)
I wasn’t going to go there but I’m getting sucked in. Yes, That’s right – I’ve created a Flamingo Toes Facebook page!!!
What have I done?
Seriously – I have no idea. I have not had a personal page either before this – so there will be probably be all kinds of wacky things happening on there. It should be entertaining. Any advice you have is appreciated.
Here’s my reasoning. . .
We’ve finally agreed to let our daughter get one – and I’m cautious/nosy/loving enough to want to keep an eye on that.
And on the blog end of things, it seems like another great way to communicate. And have giveaways. ;)
So stop by. Say hi. “Like” Flamingo Toes if you want. (That’s doesn’t sound desperate at all does it? Sheesh) Anyway. I wanted you guys to know.
