the mommyhood memos: shout outs!

shout outs!

What a week! I am taking the Problogger 31 Day Challenge to Build a Better Blog with the SITS girls (along with many of you) and am learning so much. I’m also discovering so many amazing and talented women that I want to give shout outs to this week!

:: First, if you have never been to my favorite blog, Enjoying the Small Things, please do. You will fall in love. Read Kelle’s post about the preciousness of bedtime with her girls or about her time doing what she was born to do during her weekend away in Orlando. The Orlando post brought tears to my eyes.

:: Next, go tell Kayla at My Bella Baby congratulations, because she just announced that she has a bun in the oven!

:: Asashia at A Practical Mom has a new Facebook fan page. She’s a great mama – go and show her some love!

:: Tamara at Eh! Good Looking Baby wrote a beautiful post about how her daughter Isla carried her through a difficult day. I think any mom could related to this sweet post.

:: And then visit Dean and Tori: Inn Love to see their Levi and her gorgeous photography. He is an absolute heart-melter. {Just like my Levi.}

:: The Mombshelter wrote about turning 32 – a woman after my own heart. Love this post (and love this year of my own life too).

:: And if you get hungry along the way, please check out Jaime’s post about raw baby food recipes at The Baby Who Lunches, and then Melissa at Another Lunch to see the most adorable frogtastic bento lunch you’ve ever laid eyes on. (She is so creative and talented!)

I also wanted to introduce two great blogs that I’ve found through #31DBBB:

:: Jennifer at Momma Made it Look Easy writes about how to raise your daughters with moxie (a must-read for mommies with girls… but us mommas of boys can learn from this one too!).

:: And then there is Lynda at Daily Window – one of my new heroes! This woman is smart and generous! She writes about photography and blogging among other things… Check out her post on free action resources if you’re like me and wanting to learn more about digital photo editing. And... a must see post that she has spent hours on so that you and I can subscribe to all the great 31DBBB blogs by niche with a simple click! (They are pre-sorted by topic: family, cooking, photography, crafts, blogging, health, humor, etc. etc!) Go there... and thank her while you're at it!!

This week on the Memos:
:: If you're new to the Mommyhood Memos, a couple of the best posts (judging by the most reader participation!) from this week were about the "mama badges" we earn doing ridiculous supermom feats, the "baby steps" we take to become better moms, and an ever-growing list of hilarious names we call our kids.

And lastly, it's not too late to enter to be featured on the Memos next week! {Get the details here.}

Dear mommy-friends, I hope you enjoy these great finds, and please tell them I sent you when you visit! If you're new here, thanks for stopping by the Memos! I look forward to connecting. And how about you? Do you have any favorite posts from this week that you'd like to pass along?

P.S. Thanks so much to Baby Boberg for the Versatile Blogger Award!
