My favorite bloggers.

Its almost my birthday, (yay?!) and I decided to do a little something on the blog to celebrate. I'm not up for a giveaway, so that's out.   I decided, while I was catching up on some  blog reading, to show my appreciation to some of the blogs that I frequent, and to introduce some of my favorite blogs to you all. So here goes: Thank you all, for making me smile, keeping me entertained, challenging me, informing me, inspiring me. Thank you for encouraging me (although some of you probably don't know I exist) and making me realize that my life is not as strange as I like to think sometimes.

Here are some of my favorite blogs:

 Favorite hair blogs:
Goldilocks N Me.....Mama Tav is a BEAST at styling, this blog is my number one source for inspiration when I am in a styling rut.
Girly and Curly........Star of the blog Dez and my Ally are about the same age, so I appreciate the many styles and hair care tips for tweens that I gain from this site. There is a feature that blog owner Michelle created called "stunning strangers'....I love it, and I encourage you all to check it out!
Beads, Braids and Beyond.....Another great blog for inspiration....and little "A"'s hair is just gorgeous!
Tweeny Hair....Rae and Syd are dealing with a LOT of hair over there, and it always looks amazing. This blog has been on my list of faves since I first heard of blogs, and I still can't figure out how to get my twists to come out anything like theirs. I will not quit, though!

Bloggers I would love to meet:
Charlotte of Charlotte's Avenue....If you haven't visited her blog, you are missing a lot. I love her energy, personality, and honesty. I feel like I know her, even though I have never met her outside of the blogging world. :)
Mz Sixx of Au Naturale by Mz Sixx....We are similar because we are both living with Lupus. We are different because she is outspoken about it and not embarrassed to admit her struggles. I am inspired by her.
Evin of Food Good, Laundry Bad...As if the name doesn't say enough. Her life with kids is so similar to mine, and I sometimes read her blog to put my life into perspective and laugh at myself.
Dominique-Alexis of Natural-Hair-Care-Info....I forget that she is still in high school sometimes, she is so mature. I love her love for family, and that Bunny is just too darn cute!
KandyLandKurls...Because we are neighbors...and because she is awesome.

Favorite Food Blogs:
Bentolunch.net...I was introduced to this blog by a DKOC reader, (Thanks, Trisha!) and I have picked up quite a few creative ideas for the kids' lunches from this blog.
French Whisk....I want to eat everything she makes. I'm not sure if its' the pictures, the detailed recipes, or what....but everything just looks so darn good!
Making Mama Happy...I'm not sure if this blog is meant to be a 'food' blog; but I try all of her recipes as soon as she posts them. Simple, easy, and most of the time, I have all of the ingredients on hand. Check her out!

Other favorite blogs:
Rants From Mommyland....Best mommy blog E.V.E.R. Period.
Living Rich With Coupons...I love saving money, and Cindy makes it so easy for me to do it. I don't even know how much money I have saved since I started reading her blog, but I know the number is in the thousands. Literally. :)
Diva Locks...There is hair, beauty, mothering, life. All things I love to read about.
People I Want to Punch in The Throat...I was declaring "That person needs a punch in the throat" long before I found this blog. We were made for each other.

I have, undoubtedly, left out a lot of people/blogs. But it is really late (for me, at least) and I am really tired. If you are not here, it does not mean I do not love you. It just means this is a short list (sort of?) and I am going to bed. Thanks for reading, and thanks for inspiring me!

I also want to thank everyone who reads my little blog. I appreciate the fact that you find me interesting enough to take the time to read what I have to say. That means a lot to me. :)



  1. What a great list of blogs, some I have not heard of, so thank you for the intro's, I will be checking out some blogs tonight. Hope you are feeling better.

  2. Several of those are my favorites too! And, I added a couple new ones that you suggested. :-)

    If you like RantsFromMommyLand, have you checked out ScaryMommy.com? It is awesome! I just pre-ordered her book.

  3. Love this list, I follow a lot of the same blogs. Thank you for the shout out. Love it!

  4. Aww, thank you so much for including us and for the kind words! We really need to have a hair blogger meet up one of these days =)

  5. Yeeeee, I made the list! And added some from yours... you're on my list too! I aspire to achieve your braiding skills, (and cooking skills). OAN, hope you are feeling a bit better :)
