Guess What?

This blog is officially fabulous!
I got this fabulous blogging award from Denise at Meandering Mommy Land!!!

So, to play along, here are ten blogs that I personally find fabulous (other than Denise's, of course):

1. Antique Mommy- Tina's a great writer and always reminds me to appreciate the times I have with my son.

2. Together for Good- Erin's a real-life friend from college, whose stories about her two boys are utterly hilarious, and even through a miscarriage and now- morning sickness- yay!- she continues to write delightful posts.

3. One Breath at a Time- Janine's blog never fails to remind me to cherish my time with my husband (she lost her husband a little over a year ago), and I appreciate her parenting insights- she's raised/raising 6 kids!

4. Erin's Corner of the World- Erin's another real-life friend, who always has an encouraging word- the sweetest girl you'll ever meet- her blog is sometimes funny, sometimes serious & always real!

5. FriedOkra- Megan's a great writer- I love seeing pictures of her preschooler & her 'new' baby boy & hearing all kinds of stories about her past and present. She's even sharing great tips about blogging for all of us amateurs this week!

6. Stretch Marks- Melissa's stories about her family, including a preschooler & another 'new' baby always have me laughing out loud.

7. Fiddledeedee- DeeDee's posts are absolutely hilarious, too. Her three kids do and say such funny things, and she writes about all of it! :)

8. Adventures in Babywearing- Okay, truly, I never knew what a phenomenon babywearing is until I read Steph's blog! I wear Z on my back in a frame backpack when I work at camp just because it's convenient, but Steph has opened up my eyes to so much more! I'm actually shopping for slings on ebay as we speak! :) Oh, yeah, you'll love the pictures of her 4 kids on her blog & all her great, thoughtful posts, too!

9. Owlhaven- Mary has 10 kids- 6 of them adopted from various countries around the world- her blog is such a blessing as she shares her joys & struggles in parenting & tips for the rest of us comparatively new moms!

10. Bring the Rain- I love Angie's transparent honesty and her thought-provoking posts. They always point me to worship and praise God and to cherish every moment with my little Z. When she shares her struggles with grief, she also helps me to know what a friend may be going through, which is so helpful in ministering to friends.
