Friday Favorites

Time to share some bloggy love.  This round I wanted to celebrate some of the great things people have done that I’ve read about on their blogs recently.

Without further ado, the Post-It winners are (click on their names to see their celebrated post):

Molly and Lara both made the same coolest Valentines card idea ever.  Next year, post it BEFORE Valentine’s day so that those of us with a vaccum in our brain in the place where creativity should be will have an option besides the cards we bought at the store that say things like “Valentine, I’m racing to wish you a speedy Valentine’s Day.”

Sue has the world’s best giveaway going on:  a netbook laptop!  But her blog’s always worth reading anyway.

Speaking of the best, DeNae went public this week to prove that she has the sexiest legs in the blogosphere.  And she does.  She also tried to prove she has the messiest house.  *snort*  She doesn’t.

There are places in my house that make me want to run away (like my entryway and my laundry room).  Some people look at places in their house and get creative and industrious.  Poppy took an empty corner and created a kids’ desk area.  Julie managed to make a roomy and sleek laundry area.  Oh the jealousy.

Ramona ran a half-marathon and looked like a rock star doing it.  Inspiring.

Mary survived the dreadful task of weaning her children from the family bed.  It’s a good thing too, since they were about to start high school and all.  (She’s hilarious.  You’ll love her.)

Stacy wrote a great poem that any of us who are winter weary can relate to.  And to think that I probably only have about 3 months of winter left around here . . .  (sob).

And Terresa wrote one of the best posts I’ve ever read that captures both the joy and trial of parenthood.

Oh, and I can’t forget to congratulate Kristina on her new hernia.  Nice work, KP.

Congrats to all of these ladies who make the blogworld a great place to be.  (The “rules” for winners are here.)

One more thing to share:

Some music is just POWERFUL.  And if you can watch this video without feeling a swell in your heart, then you are cold and dead inside:

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!  I’m having a JAM party (Jane Austen Marathon)— it will be awesome.  Of COURSE you’re invited.  🙂
