Five On Friday – Blog Happenings

Hi friends, just popping in to say hello!  Lots has been going on in the ol’ blogging world and I thought that I’d share a little bit with you. 


Last week, Jennifer over at Jenuine Happiness and Leslie over at This is for Keeps both nominated me for a Liebster Award.  The purpose of the Liebster Award is to find new bloggers and to let your readers know a little more about yourself.  You can read my Q&A and discover some random facts about me here.


Fellow blogger and friend, Jessica from Little Bits of Joy did a podcast the other day with Chrystie at Living for Naptime.  I have to say that I enjoyed every single second.  Jessica is so sweet, so funny, and most importantly, down-to-earth.  I swear, she’s my sister from another mister or my long lost twin because we have so much in common!  So what are you waiting for?  Go check her out and give her podcast a listen!  And thanks again, Jess, for making me famous the shout out on the podcast.  You rock my world! 


I recently joined a mommy blogger Facebook group and it has been a really great place for advice, networking, and inspiration.  Recently, Rebecca over at Caffeine is for Moms compiled heaps of great advice from other mommies in our group to pen her post What I Wasn’t Expecting When I Was Expecting.  If you’re expecting for the first time or hoping to have babies down the road, this post is for you… we are discussing all of the things that we wish that we had known before we became parents.  Ya know, the stuff that the books and the mommy websites never talk about.  Hop on over there if you want to read about the one thing that I wish I had known... it’s probably not anything that has ever even crossed your mind!


Chrystie over at Living for Naptime has started a fun Friday link-up where you can link to any of your posts that are applicable to moms and bloggers.  Last week, my post about Olivia's Bedroom made the Top 5 for the most clicked links!  I just had to share here because a) I’m slightly obsessed with Chrystie because she’s a total rock star in the blogger world and I might have a tiny girl crush on her, b) because her blog is one of my top daily reads so it was an honor to be recognized on there, and c) did I mention that she’s Ashley from the Bachelorette’s sister?!  Totally fan-girling over here.  If you want to join her link-up each week, check her out!  Warning… you’ll want to read every single post that she’s published.  Not even kidding.


Guess I should have called this Four on Friday because I’m totally out!  My brain is on spring break!!!!

Happy Easter to you and yours!  

*Linking up with A Liz Adventures and Carolina Charm for Five on Friday, A Little Bit of Everything for Friday Favorites, Living for Naptime for BFF Friday Link-up Party,  September Farm and The Farmer's Wife for Oh Hey, Friday, and Meet @ the Barre for Friday Favorites!
