Friday Favorites No. 7

by Tina @ Life Without Pink on July 23, 2010

If you need more info about Friday Favorites, read THIS.

But it is pretty simple. Write a post with your favorite reads from the week, grab my button and link up!

If you didn’t get a chance to write your post, no worries just link up YOUR favorite post from your personal blog.

My blog reader never disappoints. I always find it hard to narrow down my favorite picks of the week but here are a few that I wanted to share.

1. I don’t know about you but this hot weather is really getting to me.  I recently came across this yummy Lemon Ice Sorbet recipe from The Idea Room and my mouth was watering!

2. Think back to when you first started blogging or maybe this has happened to you recently….where you fell in love with a blogger {not in a psycho, stalker-ish way} but just had a great admiration for them. You supported them in every way possible just hoping they would reciprocate once….and NADA!

If this has happened to you then you have to read Unrequited Love written by Kludgy Mom.

3. Are you in the summer funk yet? Kids are bored, you are tired? Well if so check out The Doldrums of Summer by A Beautiful Mess. She compiles a list of ideas to help you get through these last few weeks of summer.

4. I am totally in love with the blog Adventuroo – Melissa is so talented! She challenged herself to do a Week in the Life project last week where she documented every.single.day. You go girl!

5. Stacey from The Blessed Nest took a blogging break and realized it was good for her soul.  I think we can all relate to going through this at one point or another.

6. Layla from The Lettered Cottage received a random act of kindness in her mailbox. A sweet handwritten letter;

How cool is that? You have to not only check out her story but the video that she found from the company. Amazing and so inspirational!

The sweet Melissa from Diary of a New Mom gave me the Sunshine Award. Thank you so much!

I thought it would be fun to play along but I am going to cheat a bit. I’m just going to name 10 things about myself…..maybe you will learn something new about me :)

  1. I once had lunch with Mr. T {thinking of turning this into a blog story…what do you think}?
  2. My Grandfather played professional baseball
  3. My hubby and I have been together for 14 years
  4. I am the oldest out of three kids
  5. My hubby and I tried out for a reality show once
  6. I have a fear of the ocean
  7. I live on 3+ acres
  8. I love reality tv {seriously I have an addiction}
  9. I deep down wish I was a crafty person but I don’t have a “crafty” bone in my body
  10. My family is being faced with a hard decision and we will find out today what happens. Depending on which way it goes I may or may not blog about it. It could make some good blog material.

Remember today is the last day to vote for your favorite lady to win the title of “Not Mom of the Year”. We will be announcing our winner on Monday!

Oh this week I am going to participate in Friday Follow…I thought it would be nice change to find a few new blogs….you can join in too!

Have a safe weekend and happy blog reading!
