Monster Likes #9


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….

If you don’t know Tim (@sogeshirts) on Twitter, you’re missing out…he is one of my favorite tweeps and I just want to give him a shout out for being such a great friend and re-tweeter. He also is one of the owners of – they’ve got some great t-shirts and you should go check them out!

Mommy Shorts wanted to use Lila’s picture of The Business for her caption contest – some of the captions people came up with were hilarious! If you missed it, go check it out – I promise you’ll laugh out loud at a few of them!

Scary Mommy just proves my point about why Twitter and social media in general are so damn important to bloggers! Go read her post about how she got a brand new Dyson for free…but that’s really not what the post is about at all.

Shell at Things I Can’t Say writes about her connection to water, the ocean, the waves and I read it several times. The mood and feel of her writing is calming and soothing – just like the ocean. It’s a beautiful piece – make sure to read it.

Cheryl at Mommypants wrote a post that will get you…just read it!

The Flying Chalupa has a permanent spot on my Monster Likes posts. I love everything she writes, and I swear that every time I read a post I think “This is my new favorite Chalupa post”. So if you don’t know The Flying Chalupa, go now! You won’t be disappointed.

My favorite comment of the week came from Ordinary Dad on my What’s Wrong With This Picture? post.

“what’s wrong with it is, the cover isn’t staying down, which means you actually opened and (gasp) started reading) this book. Throw the book away, and don’t let those cookies go to waste!”

I like your thinking, Ordinary Dad!

And a big fat thank you to Clare over at it’s all good in the motherhood for honoring me with the Stylish Blogger award! Much love to you my friend!

And so it goes…

    I read that Scary Mommy post too! Twitter is SO that way! My hubs complained on twitter about the campus bookstore not having the books he needed for his newest class. And BOOM. Email from the bookstore telling him his stuff was in and they were sorry about the delay. No one in his class believed him.

    Same thing when he crabs about one of our computers. Someone is on it like WHOA right away!

    Great list as usual, my friend!
