Monster Likes #23


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….

MomSpark has an awesome recipe for Lasagna Soup…yummy lasagna without all the work! I can’t wait to try this one out!

With blog conference season upon us, I was excited to stumble across Tina at Life Without Pink‘s post about tips and advice for attending conferences.

Need a laugh? Run…don’t walk…over to Lori’s place In Pursuit of It All! Honestly, when I started reading it I literally had wine coming out my nose from laughing!

Jill at Scary Mommy wrote a post about what motherhood really is…and it was touching and beautiful and honest.

Kelley over at Kelley’s Break Room does a post every week called Name that Job…come see if you can figure out what me and other bloggers used to do before kids!

If you’ve been seeing lots of pregnant belly shots lately, you probably already know all about Shell from Things I Can’t Say Rockin’ the Bump link-up. Nichole from In These Small Moments also blogs for Babble, and did a post about some of her favorite belly shots, so check it out!

One of my favoritist bloggers in the entire blogging world is Poppy over at Funny Or Snot. Just go over there and you’ll see why I wish we could live next door to each other…we would have so much fun! Also, she wants to be influential about kidneys on Klout, so please read her WTF Wednesday post if trying to figure out Klout’s K+ is driving you crazy!

If you haven’t seen the book “Go the F**K To Sleep” yet, head over to Mommy Shorts and listen to the book being read by Samuel L. Jackson…HILARIOUS people! Thanks to both @Letters4Lucas and @MommaKiss for emailing me a copy of the book for me to enjoy. And with Samuel L. Jackson reading it? It’s so much better!

Ashely (of My Front Porch Swing) is also blogging over at Business 2 Blogger and she wrote all about what you need to remember to bring with you if you are attending in Blog Conferences this summer.

I’m guest posting over at one of my favorite new blogs! At, I’m sharing my Italian Sausage Soup recipe…it’s super easy and super yummy!

Also please check it out my post about how you can support our troops overseas simply by clicking on a Taste of Home recipe! It won’t cost you anything but a few moments of time!
