What is this blog I used to read? Cute, crafty, feminine, featuring pretty things, well-designed goods, etc...written by a hip young Mormon woman in the Pacific Northwest whose husband had red hair and was a painter. They were expecting a baby, like, a year ago. It might have had the word "lovely" involved in the title. Anyone know what this blog was, or if it still exists?

Hip, young Mormon lady? Maybe dooce?
(I'm kind of rushing, hoping to be the first to get the answer right, sorry if it's wrong :x)

Best answer: Oh Happy Day?

Sounds like dooce, although I can't remember if he had red hair.

Dooce was my first thought too, but her kid is too old, and her husband is a dark-haired web designer, not a painter.
But I found you some links to other Mormon blogs- maybe browsing around through the blogrolls & contributors to the following sites might lead you down a path that would jog your memory. Here's a site networking LDS Mormon bloggers (ie, bloggers who are still approved by the LDS church, unlike Dooce, who's certainly not!), here's a list of Mormon Mommybloggers, here's a site called the Bloggernacle Times, and here's a list of Feminist Mormon Housewife Bloggers.

Was it Making It Lovely?

There's a pic on the front page of the (currently) pregnant blogger and her red-headed husband.

I would bet anything that it's Hola Isabel.

Dudes, Dooce is not a Mormon blog. Yer wan there was raised Mormon, but she's not a practising Mormon in any way, shape or form (despite having moved to Utah) and has not been for nearly a decade.

Was it Crazy Us?

I think it is Dooce. Yeah, her kid is too old, but she was pregnant last year with another (there was a miscarriage, she's pregnant again). She's an ex-Mormon, but talks enough about her Mormon history and family that the Mormon part might stick in a casual reader's head while the ex part slips through. She takes photos every day of artsy, feminine, cool designy stuff, so that fits too.

Response by poster: nice work guys! sorry i didn't get back to you to settle the discussion, but it is definitely Oh Happy Day! And now I have even more blogs to explore. Thanks!
