Monster Likes #16


Every Saturday, it’s Monster Likes time! I list my favorite selection of posts I found throughout bloggy land over the past week.

If one of your posts is listed below and you want the badge, just shoot me an email or leave me a comment and I’ll send you the badge to put on your post!

And now on to the good stuff….

Over at Modern Day Moms, they shared a super easy way to use bell pepper seeds from a purchased bell pepper to grow your own. It never even occurred to me to do this, but it makes perfect sense. I had mine drying out all week, and I am planting them this weekend!

Tonya from Letters for Lucas guest posted over at Four Plus an Angel. Her words, while full of emotion and grief, are beautiful. If you’ve ever experienced loss in your life, you must read this post.

And Tonya blew me away with another post on her own blog! It’s all about why being a mom is awesome, and I even bookmarked the page for when I need to remind myself how lucky I am to be a mom. So head over to Letters for Lucas and check it out!

Ilana over at Mommy Shorts wrote a post like a newspaper article. It’s titled Baby Kills iPhone; Mom Survives and it is HILARIOUS!

Another super funny post, and the #1 that I don’t vlog, is a vlog by Booyah’s Momma at According to Chip and Bobo. If I ever get the balls to do a vlog, I’m 100% sure it would come out exactly like this!

And here’s how a vlog should be done! Tracy is hilarious and her comedic timing is incredible. Please Tracy, PLEASE do more vlogging!! Check out how she got her blog’s title Sellabit Mum.

And I’m so excited for my friend Jessica from Four Plus an Angel because she has a piece that she wrote about her daughter’s journey through autism shared on! Congrats again, Jessica!

Last week, I wrote a post asking everybody: what’s your favorite post that you’ve ever written. I’m glad I did because I came across some posts that I hadn’t read before that I now love!

Shell from Things I Can’t Say recently shared a post with me that she wrote back in November 2009. It’s about a beautiful memory, and how she came to have the old nickname “Emmy” way back when.

MommaKiss wrote this beauty back in March 2008…it’s titled “Mommy Farted”…need I say more? If you’ve never read MommaKiss before, this is exactly why you should be!

And…in case you missed it yesterday, I had a special guest poster who announced my new feature: The Bidness. The twins will be taking over my blog once a week, and you’ll get to ask them any questions you want!

Psst! See that link over in my sidebar to Flirty Aprons? Wouldn’t that cute little apron make a fantastic Mother’s Day gift? I think so, too. You can get 40% off the Marilyn Style Aprons, while supplies last, by using Code Marilyn40 or 20% off all aprons with code 20M2011 through 5/10/2011!
