Blog Gems et al

Do you know the term 'et al'?  It is Latin and means "and others."  I mostly only use it when doing/teaching research papers and the dreaded MLA format; but, I have to show off my "English" skills over here once in a while. ;)

You want to know what I love about you all?  Yesterday's post on what I want to wear to Thanksgiving lunch got as much or more comments/feedback as Thursday's post about church.  I seriously LOVE that we can talk about heart stuff one day and shopping the next.  Y'all really are like an old friend.  I'm SO thankful for you!

Anyway, here are a few good reads from the blog world this week.  Go refill your coffee and settle in...

A live chat about blogging & her new book Blog Inc. at Oh Joy (with special guest Naomi from Rockstar Diaries).  Have any of you read this book? I'd love a review or two.

6 Tips for Editing Photos (without Photoshop, etc.) from my friend Bekuh of Secondhand Sundays.  I'm always so impressed with the photography on other blogs; but I don't have (nor can I afford in money or time) Photoshop, so I've just assumed I'll never take good pictures. This makes me want to dust off my"real" camera and stop whining. :)

You Learned WHAT from Your Kids from ILYMTC.  You know I'm a sucker for a good mom-lessons post, and this girl kills me! I love it.  P.S. She's hosting a series of guest posts on her blog this month on this topic, it's bound to be good.

Partner from Beth Anne at Okay BA!  This is really more of an "ode" to her husband, but it made me smile.  I can relate.  You might be able to too.

Fall Decorating with What You Have from, of course, The Nester.  Man, she's so good. #howmuchdoiwishiwasgoingtoherbigsaletomorrow?

When Gifts Are Big and the Gospel Is Small from cranny + b.  I love her heart in celebrating the Christmas season with her little one.  Many of these ideas are ones I'm hoping to incorporate into our own family traditions either this year or in years to come.  For example, I love her gift plan (below) and the three-gifts Glennon talked about over at Momastery also this week.

And, last but certainly not least, this very important post from Molly at A Day in Mollywood.  Read it. It might change your life. 

Ok, happy Saturday friends!  We're off to our neighborhood Christmas parade.  Love bundling Sam up in his wagon. Photos to come!
