Favorite Posts Friday {10.26.12}.

So who's up for a little Fave Post Friday??  It's been awhile, huh?  So since it's been FOREVER since I've done an FPF, you get some of my faves from that past few months.  Congrats.  :D

Mama Laughlin - I am a Runner -- I love this.  So inspiring.  It makes me want to go for a run.  A really good run.  I need to remind myself to read it next time I'm dreading my run.

Exploits of a Military Mama - Lessons in how to raise a boy -- This is beautiful and I agree with every part of it.  An experienced Mom of 3 boys once told me that her goal was to raise her boys to be excellent husbands one day.  I think that's a great goal.  Teaching love, respect, how to be a good man - all important in raising sons.

Brittany HerselfA hot bed of sexual insecurities -- Yes.  Just, yes. I have no other words.

Momastery A bicycle built for one --  "Find something just for you today.  Something with just one seat."  This.  This is what I have such a hard time with.  Especially lately.  I do things for myself and then I get behind on life and it all piles up and I get overwhelmed and depressed and anxious and then I stop doing things for myself because it doesn't feel worth it ... and then I spiral.  It has to stop.  It just has to.  Running has become a part of this, but there has to be more.  I have to make time for more.  It's not a luxury.  It's for survival.

Baby RabiesDays like this -- In this post, Jill describes exactly what I feel when I go through every once in awhile.  But it's also a reminder that it's temporary.  It's just a day.  Or 2.  And it will get better.

Momastery Here comes the sun -- Momastery is one of my favorite blogs.  Glennon is so honest, so real.  Sometimes I feel like her brain is inside my head.  But then again, I think a lot of people feel that way because that is the reason she has become so insanely popular.  Now, I don't know what it feels like to be an alcoholic or drug addict, but I do know depression.  And she says in this blog that Ashley Judd says that depression is anger turned inward.  I have to say, that is a very thought provoking statement.

Livin' the Good Life - Women aren't the only complicated ones -- Samantha is a new bloggy friend.  I mentioned her here .  Then she IG'd a photo of my blog title saying that she was famous.  This is why I like her. Her post is so funny, especially the part about men taking too long in the bathroom.  I mean, honestly, I've never understood why Brian gets to poop behind 2 locked doors and I find myself swearing to sacrifice things if I could just get 2 minutes alone to pee.  It must be good to be a man.

Sluiter Nation via Hormonal Imbalances - Accepting the unacceptable -- This is a beautiful post by Katie of Sluiter Nation.  Bottom line?  PPD does not get to win.

sKIDmarks - The Progressive Dinner -- This blog makes me laugh so.damn.hard.  Girl cracks my shit up every post.  Love it.

Okay, BA! (Formerly The Heir to Blair) via Babble 7 Reasons to Keep the Baby Weight On Into the Toddler Years7 -- ::snort::  Amen sister!  Oh, and my favorite part?  When she linked to this in her personal blog she said this - "If any of you take this seriously, I will punch you in the cooter."  ::double snort::

  1. Famous again! Thanks lady! Love being your new friend! :)


I write for me. 100%. BUT it definitely makes my day when someone tells me that they enjoy reading my blog. Or that they hate it. Whatev.

So don't spare me your words of wisdom, encouragement, or mindless babble. I enjoy it all :)
