Shout Outs

Just a few things to draw your attention to tonight...

- My awesome sponsor Melissa was featured on our local news this evening because of the ways she is using her window treatment business to help families with special needs. (You can see the segment here.) I'm glad to see her getting the recognition she deserves for her incredible talent and heart for service.
- You've probably already heard about fellow blogger, Julee Turner, and the devastating loss of her husband on Sunday night. I didn't know Julee (or her blog) prior to this; but, her story has hit home and reminded me to hold those I love just a little closer this week.  I've also been SO proud of the way the blog community has rallied around her and jumped right into action to help she and her sweet baby girl, Preslee.  Next week, a couple of bloggers are hosting a silent auction with all proceeds going to the Turners.  You can get more details about donating and/or bidding here if you'd like to get involved.

- These two ladies are doing similar 31 Days series on their blogs, and I'm loving following them!  Here are a few of my favorite posts from AP (an old fave) & Marie (a new fave):





I couldn't have said it better myself... But, I wish I'd said it first! ;)  They are that good.

- And last, because I'm not above a shameless plug for myself, my Maternity Jeans post from last week is being spotlighted on Blogher.com tonight.  Go join the conversation and answer the question "How long did you wear your maternity jeans?" here. (Hilarious that this is the post I get recognized for. Ha! Not that I'm complaining...)

  1. I love reading AP's blog. I secretly pretend that maybe I could be her, super successful blogger with the same initials. I mean, it could happen. :)
