Friday, I'm in ♥

Do you just love my new Friday button? I think it goes along nicely with the new design. Of course, the lovely and talented Kelly did it for me as well!

Oh, before I forget - early Happy Mothers Day to all my favorite mama's out there reading! I hope you get a day full of relaxation and pampering and love! Goodness knows you deserve it! I'm not sure what the rule is about step-moms celebrating Mothers Day. Last year I was only a month into this adventure. So we are going to celebrate by cooking out and having my folks over and just spending a nice day at home as a family!

So, on to the good stuff. A few of my favorites from the week!

  • If you haven't noticed, I love a good blog or post on family. I'm learning and growing every day with my new family and it feels good to read that I'm not alone. So, I enjoyed this post by Razing Mayhem on a fun little tradition her family has that brings them a little closer together.

  • Megan at Absolute Mommy had two posts this week that just made my jaw drop they were so good. You know what I love most about her blog? She is so honest and real and it makes me want to read more! I adore bloggers who let you know what their life is really like and don't pretend it's all rainbows and unicorns! If you're married or a Mom (or just want a refreshingly honest blog), then you have to check out this post and this post.

  • This 10 for 10 post over at Wattlebird. I'm still working on finding 'me' through my fashion and I'm truly inspired by people who are real people wearing real clothes. This post made me really re-think how I can use pieces in my closet and make them brand new. And while you're at it check out Jenelle's Style Remix this week.

  • I'm loving the self love extravaganza going on over at The Muffington Post. She's had some awesome interviews with simply amazing women. I found this blog through another blog I follow and was instantly smitten. Don't you just love it when that happens?

  • This book. I could not put it down. I read it in about 2 evenings and a one hour car ride. There is no better feeling in the world than getting lost in a book. I honestly have to say, it's been the most mesmerizing one I've read in a while!
Happy Mother's Day! To all my mama's out there (fur baby mama's included)! And have a fantastic weekend!


  1. I loved those style posts this week too! Have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day!

  2. So, I usually avoid mommy blogs because the only babies I have (or will have for another few years) are of the fur variety...but because of your little note up there I checked out Absolute Mommy. Those posts were awesome! Of course I didn't doubt you, just thought they wouldn't be for me since mommy blogs don't caterer to the furbaby momma.

    Thanks for broadening my blog reading just a bit more! ;)

  3. I just adore the whole redesign in general! It's absoultely adorable!
