Here are the Featured posts from last week!

IPhone-photos-2.22.14-672

Victoria chose What Moms Are Really Thinking When You Want to Visit Their Newborn from Wirl Mamas. “I chose this post because it was entertaining and spoke the truth. There are some things that guests have to keep in mind when visiting a mom who has just had a baby. I especially agree that they should hold back on the lies about saying that you look good when obviously you do not after hours of being in labor.”

Katie also chose this post. “This article is hilarious … And SO TRUE!! Having recently just had our third child, I can totally relate! This should be sent as a public service announcement to all before anyone goes to see a newborn! Tell us we look good … And bring food (ha!).”

This post also received the most clicks.

01b

Cathy chose Lemon Sugar Scrub from Melanie Gets Married. “I love everything lemon … and I have wanted to try making my own scrub. I love the ingredients and simplicity of this scrub! Can’t wait to make some!”

Silvie also chose this post. “I chose this as my favorite post this week because I am a big believer that you must take care of your skin. When ever I find something that will allow me to pamper myself while taking care of my skin, then it’s an automatic win! I tried Melanie’s recipe and I absolutely love it, the results and the scent is amazing!”

How-to-Make-a-Giant-Water-Bed-for-just-a-few-dollars-you-can-make-a-giant-outdoor-water-bed-for-the-kids-to-play.-You-wont-believe-the-joy-this-will-bring-PERFECT-activity-for-parties-350x500

Cindy chose How to Make a Giant Outdoor Water Bed from My Frugal Adventures. “I chose this because it looks like it would be a lot of fun for kids of all ages. It is also a project that I think I could actually make!”

Christian-Pinterest-Boards

Katy chose Top 10 Christian Pinterest Boards from Satisfaction Through Christ. “I’m a big fan of roundups that help me focus my energies when I head into a time-sucking platform like Pinterest. Knowing these particular boards have the backing of a respected blogger makes me that much more excited to check out their content, knowing I am headed in the right direction and will find lots of inspiration. For as easy as it is to find just about anything on Pinterest, that sometimes makes it feel overwhelming and I like that I can use posts like this to streamline my searches.”

mom problems mom life

Rhonda chose I Got 99 Problems But Perky Boobs Ain’t One from Pig and Dac. “I found this post hilarious! We all know life changes after childbirth, but it also changes our bodies and not for the better. Accepting these changes requires a look back and a look forward, and that’s exactly what this blogger did as she tells her story.”

Natasha also chose this post. “This post is so hilariously funny! My boobs went poof too, and I only have 1 child. Our bodies definitely change after having a baby, and it is so important to accept our new bodies once they develop. Regardless, I enjoyed this post! Still laughing! Great post!”

magnoliaE1-1024x1018

Rachel chose Magnolia Leaf Wreath from Canary Street Crafts. “I chose this post because I love the elegant simplicity and personalization of this wreath. It is perfect any time of year and can the monogram really adds a special touch to any front door.”

14526464267_3e4ac63b1f

Ashley chose DIY Rice Bag from The Crafty Side of Sarcasm. “Rice bags are one of my favorite blogging tools. I use one to right my wrist on when working on the laptop and can’t wait to make one for my office desk!”

pictures1

Jillian chose The Only Picture I Regretted Taking // iMO from Logan Can… “I love this post because I feel the exact same way as Logan. I can’t help but take every single photo possible of my son, and I love how she shares how important it is to her and why.”

img_1189

Alycia chose Let’s Start A Revolution! from B Marie Photography. “I love the message in this post. Finding the beauty in ourselves will help us to teach our children that everyone is beautiful and to find things they love about themselves. I am guilty of this for sure, but after reading this, I am going to start making a conscious effort to see the beauty!”

Flickr-4-660

Jessica chose Unplugging From Technology For Healthier Family Living from Urban Naturale. “This is sooo true!! I also liked how she refers to 3 year old’s using some sort of technology today too. That totally hit me bacause I have a 3 year old who loves youtube videos! Since health has been my number one concern these tips are spot on to get the family involved and “unplug” for a couple hours. At the same time, it promotes family time which we all want and need :).”

Honey-Wheat-Bread-Recipe

Stacey chose Homemade Honey Wheat Bread Recipe! from Thrifty NW Mom. “I have really been giving strong consideration to starting to bake my families bread from scratch. My family can really go through 6 to 8 loaves during the two weeks between grocery store trips, of store bought bread and curious if it would be cheaper to make it fresh. This recipe looks wonderful and I am looking forward to giving it a try! Thank you so much for sharing!”

DIY-door-frame-chalkboard-latteeveryday.com_1.jpg1

Tara chose DIY Door Frame Chalkboard from Latte Everyday. “When I saw this I thought, “what a genius idea!” I would have never thought of that. So creative how Megan turned a door frame into a chalkboard sign, I just love it! Love the message that she wrote on it too!”

Stop by and show some love to our featured bloggers this week! I’m sure they’d all appreciate it!

Let’s Attend Blogalicious & #BeGreat Together!

Blogalicios 2014 Logo

After watching all the BlogHer excitement last week I feel renewed on a personal and professional level. Blogging conferences have a way of doing that to you in ways unimaginable. Although I did not get to attend BlogHer in person I followed the tweets nonstop from Thursday to Saturday and the advice, guidance and speakers were priceless. You should check out the tweets at #BlogHer14. In my nature of wanting to share long distance experience prompts this giveaway as part of my forty three days to #KimPossible43 celebration aka my birthday.

Blogalicious 2014 See You On The River Walk Badge

Blogalicious 2013 was my first blogging conference. Here is a little insight on Blogalicious. That is where I grew up as I interacted LIVE with bloggers and pretty good brands for the very first time. Many people who I met in person at the conference are now special colleagues of mine such as Alisha of Coily Locks, Bernetta of Bernetta Style, Brandy Butler of Brandy Butler Online, Pam of Dating My Spouse, Rhachelle of I Wear My Scars and Turkisha of Natural Baby Doll. We have really bloomed from Blogalicious. It was the first blogging conference for each of us except Pam. I have personally seen tremendous growth from each of us and I love it. The networking alone makes it priceless.

Her journey to this point inspired her book – Lost and Found: Finding Hope in the Detours of Life. This book is very candid about her struggle with Judas as her husband.

Here are the Featured posts from last week!

IMG_0084

Alycia chose Marriage After Baby: How To Keep The Spark from All of Life’s Little Adventures. “I love this post by Tawnya because as a fairly new wife (3.5 years) and a new mama, I sometimes struggle with remembering to equally balance the two. Remembering that you were partners first and parents second is important. Keeping the spark alive will foster the growth of your family. She shares some great tips and great insight!”

Floral Garland (Picture)-01

Karen chose Lovely Floral Garland from Designs by Miss Mandee. “Not only is this garland great, but you can make your own with the download option! Plus, the images can be used for so many other things, making it a versatile freebie.”

Chair-Compromise-Collage2

Ashley chose The Style Friendly Man Chair Compromise from Bless’er House. “Lauren from Bless’er House was on the hunt for a Style Friendly Man Chair that would be a compromise between her desire for clean lines and her hubby’s need for ultimate comfort. After tons of research, you won’t believe what she found!”

reasons-moms-lose-joy

Victoria chose 6 Reasons Mom Lose Their Joy from Fruitful Families. “I chose this blog post because I can actually relate to what this blogger talks about. When you become a mom, you do love your kids but there are times when you lose your joy. I loved how this blogger kept it real in her post.”

1b prisma decor

Katie chose Prisma Wall Decor : Knock Off from Delineate Your Dwelling. “I am a sucker for a good knock off, and this one is FABULOUS … And basically FREE! How’s that for a good combo?! Amy made this out of … Paper Straws and Bakers Twine (plus some gold spray paint)!! I just live the result!! Beautiful!”

Mean Girls

Katy chose How to Tell If Your Daughter is a “Mean Girl” from Barbie Bieber and Beyond – Raising Girls. “My daughter, Emily, writes on my blog about her experiences being bullied and admittedly, the resources available to those being bullied far outweigh the resources available to those doing the bullying. Encouraging parents to pay attention and consider whether or not their child is headed in the wrong direction and how to get them back on track is an important piece to the #stopbullying puzzle, and I appreciate her bringing it to light. It’s hard to admit as parents that our child might be a bully, but we have to be open to addressing these issues instead of ignoring them.”

img_5091-e1399222648815

Jillian chose Finding inspiration in the face of writers block from Operation Home. “I chose this blog because as writers we have all suffered with writer’s block at one point or another, having these tips handy can help you overcome that block.”

Natasha also chose this post. “These are some great tips to overcome writer’s block. Since I’ve had my fair share this year, it is great to have a way to get through it.”

TRIX-Krispie-Treats-533x800

Elie chose Trix Krispie Treats from MadeInADay.com. “These Trix Krispie Treats from Kim at Made In A Day look so delicious!! I wish I would’ve thought of these! Can’t wait to try them myself.”

Efficient Blogging

Tenns chose Efficient Blogging from Pastries, Pumps, and Pi. “Such a great rundown of how to blog more efficiently! I think any blogging can appreciate and benefit from Tameka’s post. Its will thought out and thorough, and most importantly resourceful.”

Stacey also chose this post. “What a wonderful post! I, too, have several things that I would like to bring into my blogging…such as having more guest posts as well as becoming more frequent with posting and scheduling, and adding a few more things that I have learned from more seasoned bloggers to make my site better for my readers. Thank you so much for sharing!”

MintCherry4

Silvie chose Cherry Mint Water and More Infused Water Recipes from Little House Living. “I chose this post as my favorite because ever since I started my weight loss journey I’ve been using infused water to get past that bland taste in plain water and be able to drink more of it. After trying it I found that Merissa’s Cherry Mint infused water recipe is easy, and delicious!”

Jessica also chose this post. “I’ve always been a fan of infused water recipes since working at a casino in Las Vegas. Our spas always had them on hand for the guests and I, of couse, always wanted to drink them because they were so good and healthy for you! Merissa’s post brought back those yummy memories and included some recipes I will actually use today. Thanks for sharing!”

Vintage-Wrought-Iron-Table-and-Chairs-Redo-p

Rhonda chose Vintage Wrought Iron Table and Chairs Redo from GrandParents Plus. “I love repurposing things. This blogger did a great with this make-over. The fabric selection makes the red and white pop, and it’s now a great spot to enjoy family and a beautiful view.”

IMG_5597-001_1

Rachel chose 8 Tips for better summer photos of your kids! Photos of Summer Friday, week 6 from Just A Touch of Crazy. “I chose this post because I feel like my son is growing up so fast and I want to capture all the fun and memories of childhood, especially summer.

The Highland Inn Is Atlanta’s BEST Kept Secret!

The-Highland-Inn-Porch

The Highland Inn, located in the Virginia Highlands, is truly Atlanta’s BEST kept secret among boutique hotels. I just LOVED my stay at the Highland Inn. It takes you back in time and gives you remember when vibes. The BEST comparison would be visiting your grandmother house. Nestled in the Poncey Highlands neighborhood the hotel is a distant memory of its days as Shady Rest which it was formally known as. Today it presents beautifully as a much sought after boutique hotel in the perfect neighborhood. It stays sold out most nights so be sure to book in advance. No walk in here.

Highland-Inn-Bedroom

Locally owned everything is handled with kid gloves and the guest are the most important thing. They have the BEST staff on hand and truly understand the art of customer service. They even know guest by name. This truly impressed me because that is not something you normally experience from all staff. Our stay was perfect from the suite room
to the quaint continental spread to the real room key! Yes, they still have actually keys to the rooms. No disposal key cards here. Wait it does not stop there. There are nice on site laundry facilities, a cute little court yard and Atlanta history throughout the hotel which truly shares the history of Atlanta through framed memorabilia since the 1920s.

Highland-Inn-Bathroom

The Highland Inn is very European and they have well maintained its original 1920’s design yet managed to add the perfect conveniences to satisfy us Americans. Those conveniences include a mini fridge, a flat screen TV, in room Wi-Fi and other little Highland Inn treats. Perfectly priced you could not ask for any better option. Whether you are booking through a travel site or directly with the hotel you are a winner. Plus your third night is half price. Check out their website and follow them on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and their blog.
