Design Help Needed. Inquire Within.

One of the many few birthday presents I will be gifting myself is a new blog design.  Thanks to A. Liz Adventures, I found a really great site that I want to work with - designerblogs.com - but, I have no idea which option to choose.

And since it's for my blog, may as well ask the people that read my blog, right?

So, tell me.....which of the three do you like best?

I'm leaning towards option #1, since I think I'm ready to veer away from the gray. Tell me what you think and hopefully you'll see a change here in the next week or so!
