My Finds Friday + A Giveaway

Happy Friday!

Oh man am I happy it’s Friday! I’ve missed being around here and am hoping to get some blogging done over the weekend. All week long, I’ve been reading some really great posts and wishing I had more than a moment to blog. Alas, I find time as I can and I have a few minutes now, so here I am.

It’s been a busy week, mostly because of packing and getting things done around the house. Work was busy, but it was good busy and made the week fly. Can you believe it – after this weekend, there is only 2 more weekends until we move!!! I cannot believe that!!!

Anyhow…. On with My Finds Friday.



Top Three Blog Articles I’m Lovin’

Top Video of the Week

I love Jimmy Fallon and I love Idina Menzel, so them singing the song from Frozen together made my heart go pitter patter.

Top Recipe of the Week

I’m pretty smitten with the idea of this Spinach & Kale Goat Cheese Pizza. The pictures of it look simply mouth water, but I know how much I love goat cheese, so there is no question on whether this would be yummy or not.

Top Workout of the Week

This week I’m sharing a post from one of my favorite bloggers, Janice from Fitness Cheerleader. Her post isn’t about a specific workout, but it is 5 REAL life tips for fitting fitness into your day. This is constantly one of my biggest challenges, her tips really gave me some insight, so I highly recommend you check them out.

And finally… That Giveaway!

Chelsea from the blog Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles is turning 24 today! Yahoo! Happy birthday, chica! To help herself celebrate, she is giving away a $110 gift card to Target, and I’m one of the lucky ladies participating in the giveaway. You can enter using the rafflecopter widget below. Good luck!

Blogs I Read – Mommy Blogs

I don’t know about anyone else, but I am constantly on the lookout for new, quality blogs to read. AND since word of mouth is the best way to share great blogs, I thought I’d dedicate this post entirely to some of my favorite Mommy Blogs. Enjoy!


My Favorite Mommy Blogs

A Healthy Slice of Life  – I think my favorite thing about Brittany and A Healthy Slice of life is her Munchkin Meals link-up. Every first Thursday of the month she shares what her daughter is eating and provides a link-up for other mommies to share what they’re feeding their children. She also shares so much about her daughter, meal prep, the foods she eats and the different products she likes.

Ain’t No Mom Jeans – One of my absolute favorites! Shana shares great fashion finds for the momma. Clothes that are flattering to the leftover baby pooch, bras for saggy boobs and so much more. Shana was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and is currently undergoing chemo. Stop in, read her blog and wish her well. She is an inspiration!

BuyModernBaby.com – A great site for all the new modern finds for babies and kids. Some of the room designs they feature, are items I’d love to buy and decorate my next child’s room with. They’re so beautiful!

Fitness Cheerleader – Janice’s blog is a new find to me, but I’m thrilled that I found it. She’s a working mom with three little girls who also manages to workout and stay in great shape. This blog is highly motivational for me because I’m always struggling with balancing work, exercise, being a wife and being a mom.

Healthy Tipping Point – A favorite and an old standby. I love Caitlin’s blog, always have, always will! She is currently training for a half Iron Man and seeing how much she works out and continues to be a great mom is so SO inspirational.

Kath Eats Real Food – Kath’s blog has so much food inspiration. She shares all the foods she feeds her family and since she is a Registered Dietitian everything is very healthy AND it looks so delicious.

The Alpha Parent – If you’re considering breastfeeding, bookmark this blog! It is pro-breastfeeding, and helps you believe in yourself and your ability as a mother to nurse your baby. There are weekly stories called Triumphant Tuesdays, where mothers share their birth stories and how outside forces tried to thwart their efforts to breastfeed. Reading this blog helped me to understand there is NO excuse not to breastfeed. Check it out!

The Art of Making a Baby – Another standby for me! I’ve been reading this blog since just after Emmett was born. Elena’s photos are stunning (and her daughter is so flippin’ adorable), her articles are always full of great information for new and old moms.

This Little Chickpea – A new find I found while reading A Healthy Slice of Life’s Munchkin Meals link-up. She’s also a working mom, with two kids and manages to keep things healthy in her house. There’s some great motivation to be found here!

There you have it, my current favorite Mommy Blogs.

Your turn!

What mommy blogs do you read that I haven’t mentioned?
