Who Do You Love to Read?

I'm always on the lookout for great blogs to add to the already huge list of fabulous blogs I read.

Because really? Is laundry that important?

I know there are hundreds I don't even know about.

Who are your favorites?

Amazing recipes. We just made the Sticky Coconut Chicken recently and it was SO good.

Emily said...

I meant for ME not my. :)

grannyann said...

My favorite is my son's blog.
http://www.curtistucker.com/
He is that "sneaker wearing entrepreneurial cartoonist internet guy" - he does the memoirs of a 70's sneaker wearing dad. He states "This is my goofy diary highlighting my memories of growing up in the 1970's, my observations of being a dad of two crumb crunchers, how I make money online drawing cartoons and the plans I have of being a millionaire Internet entrepreneur in the 2000's. Follow along and I'll try to make it all entertaining. "
He is very humorous and totally family friendly.

I haven't been blogging very long and somehow or another your blog was one of the first ones I stumbled onto. After I read the part about y'all meeting all of your medical deductables so early in the year, I was hooked (and I enjoy your writing). I can so relate to that! I think we've met this year's and next. It's a darn shame they don't carry over!

Mrsyellowhat.blogspot.com is one of my new favorites. I really enjoy her writing as well - funny gal.

Anonymous said...

I loooove this one. It's nothing like you or any of the links above, but it is so incredibly touching. You have to take the time to read ALL the way back. It's worth it.

Hi Kristen,

This is a great question and I'm gonna have to take some time to check out some of the sites mentioned above.

Like Julie above, I like The Homespun Heart. She makes everything she does pretty. I wish I had that gift.

And I just found Pleasing to Him which is more of a devotional blog and I am hooked. It is so good and really makes me think.

Have a great weekend.
