TT # 15 - 13 Blogs I love and WHY I love them

Here they are-in NO particular order... I love reading all your blogs, but here are 13 that are on my sidebar that I visit daily (no, I don't always comment) and here are the reasons these blogs ROCK! It sure is hard coming up with different adjectives to describe so many FANTABULOUS women!!

OK. I KNEW I was going to forget someone. I had actually THOUGHT I put this one in and my stupid computer was taking so long to load, I must have erased it on accident. (Could it be because I am downloading season 1 of Grey's Anatomy while I am doing this??)
Anyway, because of this, I am starting my list of 13 from ZERO.

0. Pants Optional - I love this blog because Sheri is so sweet. She is so obviously in love with her children and her husband. Her kids are GORGEOUS, too. Go look. Check out her daughter's hair. To. Die. For. Seriously.

1.Love Conquers All - Jeannene is my "real life" friend. I have known her for a few years. She is passionate about life and has a unique eye for all things creative. I couldn't imagine never having gotten to know Jeannene. I love her and her children and she is a very special part of my life. In her family, it is truly apparent that Love DEs Conquer All.

2.My Chaos My Bliss - Cecily is hilarious. If you have read this blog, you know that. Sometimes when she writes, I feel like she is my soul sister. She could write my posts for me half the time. I have enjoyed getting to know her, even if she does use words like "costed." I will keep the red pen put away this one time. Her Chaos is Our Enjoyment!

3. Enjoying The Ride - Jenn is amazing. She is sweet and inspiring. In fact, she was my inspiration for this Thursday 13. I hope to get to know her better, since we are fairly new blog friends. Hop on, friends, you WILL enjoy this ride!

4. Sarcastic Mom - DUDE-Lotus is so funny! Just look at her blog name. Sometimes you just need a little sarcasm (or a lot, in this case) in your life. If for no other reason, read this blog for the pictures. She has the most hilarious pictures on here. Braden's poop picture makes me throw up in my mouth a little bit every time I see it, but that's ok. The pictures of herself in various poses is cute, too!

5. TheVasquez3 - Holleeann is an incredible woman. The way she adores her daughter is so admirable. She is so obviously Jordan's mother, even if not by blood. The photos she posts are filled with love and I think she deserves a ton of credit just for being the woman that she is. Plus, she's adorable, and her blog portrays that!

6. The World Through The Eyes of Me - Leeann's blog has me in tears 75% of the time I read it. The compassion this woman has in her heart is remarkable. I admire her greatly and I LOVE her blog. She is fun, yet serious at times, too. If only everyone could see life through these same eyes.

7. From the Mixed-Up Files of Crystal - Crystal cracks me up. Her witty intellect is awesome. Plus, she loves the Office, as I do. And anyone who loves the Office is too cool for school. And she is.

8. Truly Delightful in Every Way?? - Julia (aka Crazy Mama of 6. yes, SIX!) is fantastic. First, she's a mother of SIX and still not completely insane (notice I said 'completely'), second she is a cancer survivor. and third, she is RAD! She makes me laugh every time I read her blog. She really is TRULY delightful.

9. Eccentricities Studio - I am actually just getting to know Dana, but it is obvious just from her blog that she is a fabulous person and a creative being! I am glad I am getting to know her!!

10. Playgroups are No Place For Children - Jennifer aka Binky Bitch cracks me up! Seriously. I can get my daily dose of humor with one click. Can you all tell I love to laugh??

11. Queen of the Mayhem - The Queen is so flippin' funny, I laugh out loud and nearly wet my pants every time I read her blog. Her juvenile humor is awesome. Reminds me of Beavis and Butthead. I think I like it so much because I do it, too. She's funny and she's a teacher, which is what I am in school for. So she double rocks.

12. Full Plate - MamaLee's blog is very entertaining. Her three children say and do the sweetest and naughtiest things. I love reading about her daily adventures. I got to know a lot about her, and she really does Rock. Plus, she is a Starbucks fanatic, like me. Starbucks fanatics unite! Her plate is full, and after reading this blog, you will be full as well.

13. God's Greatest Gift to me - Another of my "real life" friends. She doesn't blog too often, but I can assure you that she is an AMAZING woman. She is an awesome wife, mother and friend. I know if I need to vent and get some sane advice, I can call Lisa. She puts things into perspective and is so incredibly humble. I love her to pieces. We really need to hang out more, though. She is one of God's amazing Gifts

All of these blogs inspire me in one way or another. I am not a "writer", so I don't have a way with words like many of these women. So many of these women are like professional writers and stuff and when you read their blogs you really feel as if you are experiencing it with them. That's one of my favorite parts of blogging. I do need to get better at commenting, though. I don't leave messages on machines, either.

lisa said...

Wow I am humbled by your comments on me. Thank you. To answer your question no She WAS not funny at all. In fact she had a little power and was trying to wield it. I miss you are you coming back to N's Bible study?

crystal said...

Hey, Julia! You can't heckle me on someone else's blog!

Crazymamaof6 said...

back ! dang. i didn't proofread. shoot.

Big Daddy said...

I will admit, I am not a regular reader of your blog. I am, however, the husband of one of the blog authors you wrote about. HolleeAnn (TheVasquez3) is my wonderful and beautiful wife. I trully appreciate everything she has done to be the best mom she can be for Jordan. She is always thinking about fun stuff for her to do and she goes way out of her way to make sure even a simple sleep over is a top notch party. She has been a wonderful wife and has sacrificed so much so our little family can flourish. I owe her a debt that I will never be able to repay. It makes her very happy for a little recognition here and on other blog sites, I think it is awesome that so many people out there "tune in" to see what is happening with us. HolleeAnn just does a great job of making life interesting, both here and in real life. Thanks for giving her a well deserved shout out.

You can heckle each other all you want on my blog-it makes it look like I have a lot of blog friends!! "Wow, 22 comments-SHE ROCKS!" Nothing like Cecily's 70 something, but whateva!

Crystal said...

I jumped over here from Jenn's blog! I love your blog and will be back more often! Have a good weekend;)

SuperCoolMom said...

Hey Kelly, You've got some of my favorite bloggers on your list! Crazymama is my sis (but I had to go underground because of a psycho stalker)

I'll be back. (I hope you read that like Arnold)

Nicholas said...

I know some of those, but others are new to me so I'll check them out.

Queen of the Mayhem said...

THANKS! I am such a "ho" for affirmation...you have NO idea!

I am glad to know another infantile person...as my "real-life" friends seem to sometimes tire of my humor!

I think your blog is awesome and I am so glad we found each other!

Have a great weekend!

Leeann said...

Wow! Thank you! Although, I need to re-evaluate if I am making you cry so much! :)

SuperCoolMom said...

hey Kelly, just saw your comment on the book blog. Email me at lotsostuff at hotmail dot com and I'll send you an invite to my private blog - it's so hard making new friends when you're private! Thanks!
