Some favorite blogs

Today on Kelly's Show Us Your Life we are linking up our favorite blogs.

I have been blogging since 2007 and I have A LOT of favorite blogs. I have favorite food blogs, favorite decorating blogs, favorite friend blogs, favorite blogs of people I don't know and I'm too scared to comment cause I think they are so cool, favorite blogs that get on my nerves yet I still continue to read and so on and so on.

Today I decided to share a couple of my favorite blogs. This is BY NO MEANS all of my favorite blogs. I have way too many to name but these are a select few that I wanted to share today.

The first is a person that I have talked about before because I enjoy her blog so much.

Big Mama
People, if you aren't reading this blog you need to start ASAP. She is so, so, so funny. She has this way of taking a normal, everyday story and making it the funniest thing you have ever read. And somehow she manages to post every single day, which I guess is easy to do if you are able to take stories about PAINT DRYING and make it hilarious. (she didn't really write about paint drying but I bet she could and it would be funny). If I could be like any writer out there (in the blog world) it would be Big Mama, fo sho.

Blue Eyed Bride
I don't remember when I first started reading Erin's blog or how I even found it but I know that I have been reading her blog for awhile. She is someone who is in the same stage of life that I'm in, we've both been married for 3 years and have entered the world of mommyhood. I look forward to reading her posts everyday. Erin has this natural and smooth way of being able to blog about serious issues and then the next day move to something fun and lighthearted. This is because she is truly authentic and is just herself in every post. Throughout our years in blogging we have developed a friendship, so I can tell you who she is on her blog is who she really is. So sweet and FUN! You are probably already reading her blog, but if you aren't you need to start now!

The Stanley Clan

I recently linked Becca's blog asking you all to pray for her son Caden who was born with a heart defect. Thank you for praying and please continue to pray. He has made great progress and God has definitely done some miracles, but they still need our prayers. Becca's blog is one of my very favorite blogs to read because it isn't just fluffy, light reading. I leave her blog feeling challenged to grow every single time. Lately God has been working in my life about letting go of material things, finding complete and total contentment in Him alone. Becca and her husband live this out and are one of the best examples for the heart of Christ that I have ever seen. I am always reading her blog posts aloud to Luke because they live the kind of life that we only strive to live. I encourage you to check out her blog and read through all her posts!

Sunny Side Up
I found Erin's blog about a year and a half ago and it was one of those that hooked me instantly. Sometimes that just happens - some blogs just hook you and you start reading every single day. Erin has 3 kiddos and lives in California with her husband. She talks about going to the beach and Disney Land like I talk about going to Target. She is one of the most organized people I have ever seen in my entire life. Her blog posts range from posts on organization, stories about her family, and she started fashion posts lately. One of my very favorite posts of hers is a letter she wrote to herself before she had her youngest child. I absolutely love it. I've talked about this before but I don't feel like moms are always completely hoenst but those first few weeks after having a baby so I love to see authentic posts like this. Check her out!

I also thought I would link my top 10 referring blogs (meaning more people come to my blog from these blogs than any others) because I LOVE all these blogs and would also consider them my favorite blogs (amongst others):

1. Kelly's Korner
2. In This Wonderful Life
3. The Glamorous Life of a Housewife
4. Jimmy Choos and Tennis Shoes
5. Jenna's Journey
6. Blue Eyed Bride
7. First Comes Love
8. The Francis Family
9. Classy and Fabulous
10. Fruit Basket

I hope I was able to introduce you to a new blog (or several) today!

Hi Megan!

Oh my goodness! You are too sweet! I saw a lot of traffic heading my way on my blog and checked my stats and found you! I am so honored you included my blog in your list of favorites! And you wrote such kind things about me! Thank you. Really. I'm so happy you have enjoyed my blog and I'm so glad I've found yours! I'm looking forward to spending some time "meeting" you tonight after my kids are in bed. :) Thanks again - your kind words seriously made my day!

Pfft love your list, I read it thinking "love her, love her, love her"... you have excellent taste! :)

Although I dunno what it says about me that I read mommy/wife blogs and I am neither of the two... haha, well, it's probably just time cause I have excellent taste!
