And now on to the good stuff….

Jamie over at Chosen Chaos wrote a must read laugh out loud post for all moms of multiples called What Is Your Favorite Brand of Tampons? If you are not a mom of multiples, still read it and watch the video clip and the title of her post will make sense.

Morgan at the little hen house wrote a post about How to Use Pinterest to Promote Your Blog and I can’t wait to take her advice! Spend more time on Pinterest AND drive more traffic to my site? Yes please!

Greta at Not Enough Patience and Never Enough Jewelry! linked up her favorite wedding picture in my Down the Aisle link up!  Why do I love her picture so much? I absolutely fell in love with her dress…and check out the shoes she is wearing! I wish I would’ve done something like that!

Nichole (In These Small Moments), also writes for Babble and wrote a post titled Selective Judgement: Moms Judging Other Moms. Go read it. And read the comments too.

My friends over at Modern Day Moms were nominated for Best Blog award by Parents.com! If you love them as much as I do, head over so you can read all about it and then click from there to go vote!

My friend Becky who writes Mommy Wants Vodka and who runs the A-MA-ZING Band Back Together site has been nominated for Babble’s Mom’s Who Are Changing The World. She deserves it. If you’ve ever been to Band Back Together you already know this, and I want to send you over to vote for Becky now!

The super hot Lerner AKA Stay at Home Babe wrote a post about turning 30 and what she’s learned about life and friendship. It’s a fantastic read, and I’m not just saying that because she included me in her post. She is really a beautiful person inside and out, and you’ll see why after reading the post.

Did you attend the Clever Girls Collective party at BlogHer? Over at The Bitchin’ Wives Club, Amy wrote a post titled Some Heartfelt Advice to Brands from a BlogHer Believer that is worth the read.

There were over 50 link ups for my Down The Aisle post where I asked everybody to share their favorite wedding photos…if you haven’t checked it out yet and LOVE wedding photos, you’ve gotta see this and then link up!

Many of you know I write over at SmartMomPicks.com (and SmartMomStyle.com too!), and sometimes I find really cool products worth sharing. When I find ones I think you HAVE TO check out, I will share them here. And this week, I had two cool products…Spunge blankets and Rockabye Baby! (lullabies to the music of your favorite songs: think AC/DC, Nine Inch Nails, Bob Marley and more)…so check them out!

What was your favorite post of the week? Leave a link in the comment section below!

Shell from Things I Can’t Say wrote a post about 5 ways to make new blog friends. If you’re a new blogger or just looking for a way to meet new people, then you’ll definitely want to read this post – it is spot on and awesome advice.

Jessica over at Four Plus an Angel wrote a post about Twitter twins…people on Twitter who like alike and confuse the heck out of everybody. I was lucky enough to be matched up with both Jessica and Nichole, making us a set of Twitter triplets! It’s as much fun to read all the comments as it is to read the post!

Tayarra over at 5 Sharp Lives wrote about struggling feelings of being far from perfect. It’s a brave post, and well worth the read. 

Chocolate Zuchinni Monster Muffins? Yes please! Naomi of Organic Motherhood with Cool Whip also writes over at She Knows and posted this recipe. Nom nom nom!

If you don’t already know Band Back Together, run over there now! It’s an amazing blog full of people dealing with the stuff of everyday life…sharing stories about everything from self improvement to the real dark stuff like rape. It’s a haven and a place to feel not so alone. I’m proud to help there behind the scenes, and want to give the site a MAJOR shout out because everybody can learn something there. 

Have you heard of the Great American Backyard Campout? It’s an annual event that takes place on June 25th and encourages family to spend time together and enjoy the great outdoors. I think we might even try sleeping in the backyard…Tater will love it! You can find info on both the website and their Facebook page.

And last but not least, a big fat thank you to Jho from Witchy Crazy Mommy for passing along the Versatile Blogger Award!
