These Are A Few,(well, maybe four), Of My Favorite Things, Monday

Sweet Baby Girl used my camera yesterday and left it in her friends car, so... I am left to my creative devices this morning to use my, I guess I finally got THE cold brain, and pictures I already have for my post this morning. (Don't worry if I don't make sense. I have a cold remember?).

So I started reading some of my favorite blogs this morning, and Ta, Ta, Ta, Da! Inspiration for my These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things Monday post. (Thank You Jesus)

I thought I would share with you a few (well maybe four), of my favorite blogs, each for their own reasons. So here we go,

My first favorite blog is a new one that I've stumbled upon and absolutely love. It is, whatever. Yeah, thats the name of her blog, whatever. Love that in and of itself right?! This mom is one of the most creative ladies I've seen. Just scroll down her blog and see her Craft Room. She sews, helps friends in need, takes care of her family, and has the most amazing house I absolutely want to move into. (I just don't know where she lives. good thing for her, right? ) And she's REAL. No really, REAL!!! Her house gets messy, her kids get cranky, and her 14 year old is well, 14. Need I say more. (And she loves and adores her). She is an inspiration to me, and you'll love her too.

My second favorite blog is one I've already shared with you, but soooo needs repeating, It is jayniemoon. Remember the video of her typical week I posted about a bit ago? Well I just watched it again for the, who knows how many times, and it put a smile on my face instantly. Her children are just beautiful, and SHE looks all of 12 years old. So adorable. She really reminds me of the girl next door, all grown up. Someone you would love to have in your neighborhood to stand at the school bus stop with, (but I think she home schools?),over a cup of hot coffee, on a beautiful spring morning.
My next favorite blog always inspires me to the core of who I am. It is NieNie. Stephanie and her family have been through so very much in the last months... Her life, story, and wisdom from it all helps this 44 year old to be grateful for all I have, and not take a moment of my day for granted. And when I do I slap myself silly. Thank you Nie for being so willing to share your life, heartaches, joys, story, & days with us. You are loved and prayed for blog friend.
And last but certainly not least the blog that really got me so fired up to start my own blog, Nester. This lady is frugal, humble, fun, and creative. Her blog is helpful and inspiring. She reminds us that "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful". Something I truly believe. Nester is a stay at home mom who home schools her boys in a lovely, sometimes messy, home. Hey, she has boys, messes just follow.
She is another REAL gal and I appreciate her willingness to share that with her readers. We can relate on all kinds of levels with this sweet blogger.

So there you have it girls. A few of my favorite things (plus one) Monday! Take the time to check each blog out (by clicking on their "names"), and enjoy!!!

I've got to get going this morning. The dogs are whining from the laundry room, and I'm on my third cup of coffee.

Hugs from Maine
