This is my 500th post.
500 times I have sat down (or stood up while Lydia pulled on my leg) to blog.
So, to honor 500 posts, I’ll begin with 500 things about me.
Actually, to honor my ability to write 500 different things, I’m going to NOT blog. That’s right. I’m going to link to five of my favorite bloggies that I’ve probably never shared with you (or at least not in a long time). And well, I might link to some of my friends, too.
Ready? Start your engines!
Ann Kroeker, author and mama is one of my favorite blog reads. I honestly can’t read and comment on hers everyday because she’s so wonderful, I have to take time to read and digest.
Inside a Black Apple is an etsy find. She’s from Athens, GA and was just featured on Martha Stewart. MARTHA. I love everything she does and have been wanting to share this after-Easter party post of hers. Is that the cutest thing ever?!
CakeSpy is one of my new favorites. It’s the funniest little blog about well…cake. Mostly cupcakes. Some of my favorite posts are when they walk through a city, find the cutest bakeries and then taste the yummiest cupcakes. Seriously, do they need a guest Atlanta blogger?! They also do great dessert experiments.
According to Kelly is one of the few blogs where I’m a lurker. Most mommy-type blogs I read I comment. But I’ve never commented on Kelly’s (that I remember). She’s just a fun, super creative mom. I love reading her short little posts. She’s like a little breath of fresh air!
Lifting Hands is one you need to blogline. Each week, they post a prayer to pray over your children. It’s a scripturally based prayer that covers anything from health, to school to spiritual growth. I love seeing that it’s updated so I can use the prayer to help me pray for my Lydia (and baby#2!)
I wanted to link to all the cool and creative posts my friends have–I love Damselfly‘s candor, Jo-Lynne making me feel in-with-the-in-crowd, Annie‘s faith and friendship, Amber‘s courage, Laura‘s insights, bee‘s humor, Jenny‘s transparency, Deanne‘s fun, Erin‘s quick wit, Candace‘s hospitality, MorningSong‘s parenting, Mr. Best Investments’ dry humor, Leigh‘s just-like-me-ness, Megan‘s purposefulness and Val‘s everything…but well, I have too many friends and I’m running out of adjectives. (If I just mentioned you, I hope you aren’t thinking, “What the heck did she mean by that?!” It’s how I feel when I read your blog–the highest compliments, I assure you.)
Thanks for making these 500 posts fun! Happy Bloggy Day to you!
