Monster Likes #35


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….

My friend Jen over at Buried with Kids wrote a post about spending A Little One on One Time with one of her triplets.  I cried happy tears when I read it, and planned a date night with Ethan.

I’ve written about blog scraping before, but do you know what to do when someone steals your blog post? Head over to Blogging Basics 101 to find out.

Carri over at Mommy’s Little Monster Blake wrote a touching post called You. I think it’s a post we’ll all relate to on some level.

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes? Yes please! Head over to Lerner’s place Stay At Home Babe for the recipe.

If you’re a writer, you should really have a Facebook fan page…but do you? Head over to Write on Edge to see  Ashley’s (@porchswingmom) post about Why Writers Need Facebook.

Morgan over at The Little Hen House teaches us How To Make Graphics Without Using PhotoShop.

This seems like such a great cause that I had to mention it: Jennifer Garner has teamed up with Frigidaire in supporting Save the Children. Every time you explore their holiday cooking tips and ideas online, Frigidaire will donate $1 to Save the Children as part of its $500,000 commitment to helping children living in poverty in the U.S.

You might have seen my post this past week related to moms who drink alcohol. In the last couple of weeks, there were at least 5 posts written on various blogs on the topics of drinking and alcoholism, and each and every one of the posts was helpful to at least one person. But, the one thing that none of us thought to offer you are the resources where you can find help if you need it. Here is some information for those of you who need it:

• Alcoholics Anonymous –
• Al-Anon/Alateen –
• National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism –
• Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration –


  1. I definitely need to try the homemade pumpkin spice latte!
  2. Glad I found this post on a morning when the hubby is watching the babies and I have free time to catch up on blogging...heading off to check out some of your recommendations!
