Sharing is caring!

Happy Monday everyone! Since I love making new friends and Stacey invited me, I thought I’d join in another blog hop for the month of October. Watch for it here on Mondays! I hope you will join in the fun! Just a note, if you do follow me, please leave me a note so I know where to find you! I am always happy to follow back! All of my buttons are at the top of my blog! The same goes for comments on my blog posts…I’m looking forward to “meeting” some new people!

And now…

Welcome back party people…it is time to meander on in for another amazing edition of This Momma’s Meandering Mondays 14! As we enter the month of October, we have several new faces joining up with us this month, and some familiar faces, too.

Please help me welcome back Jessica from The Wondering Brain and Natasha from Epic Mommy Adventures my two amazing cohorts in fun, who have chosen to join me on a permanent basis for This Momma’s Meandering Mondays! I am also thrilled to welcome Ophelia from Latina Mama Rama back as one of our amazing co-hosts. Aaaannnndddd…our two new faces happen to be past giveaway winners Penny from The Real Housewife of Caroline County, Sara from Sweet Silly Sara, and Michelle from A Dish Of Daily Life! It is wonderful to have you all along for this months co-hosting adventure! Without further ado, please allow me to introduce everyone!

“I’m a Gen Xer and work full time as a Special Projects Person for a university. I am also a full time mommy to 2 boys, ages 19 and 2. To top it off, I am also a full time Doctoral Learner for the University of Phoenix. I started writing this blog in January 2013 because I was suffering from writer’s block in school. I like challenging myself in whatever I do. I figured if I held myself accountable for writing, why not display all my crazy thoughts out to the public? Thus, The Wondering Brain was born!”

“I am the author and editor of Epic Mommy Adventures, Natasha is a 30-year old single, working mommy and graduate student. She enjoys blogging about her entertaining adventures with her 2-year old son and all of the things that motherhood brings. She has an ongoing series on her blog, What’s For Lunch Mommy, focused on simple and healthy meal choices for toddlers. Visit Epic Mommy Adventures for good laughs, giveaways, recipes, and so much more!”

“Latina, wife, mama of 2 boys. Love food & coffee, clean freak. Always on the go jumping from one thing to another. LatinaMamaRama is a lifestyle blog where family, food and culture is discussed.”
The Real Housewife of Caroline County

“I’m a mom to 2 beautiful girls, one toddler and one infant, I’m married to their handsome daddy and so in love with my little family. I’m using this place to post about our lives, our loves and our adventures. This is a way for me to share all that’s important to me, my kids and my family and includes motherhood tips, beauty and all things that make my world go round and round in this crazy world we call LIFE!”

Green Living, Product Reviews, Giveaways, Toddlers

“She’s sweet, she’s silly, she’s Sara! The Sweet Silly Sara blog focuses on brutally honest moments in the life of a mommy and a wife and living the dream in hues of green.”


“I’m Michelle, the head writer and editor in chief at A Dish of Daily Life! A soccer mom with 3 kids, married to my college sweetheart for over 20 years. I work from home, offering my clients solutions to their social media marketing needs. Having also worked in the photo organizing industry for years and being an avid photographer, I have a passion for people and their stories. I often write about photo related topics on my blog. If I’m not taking pictures or driving kids to practice, you can often find me on Twitter!”

Now it is time to introduce our favorite This Momma’s Meanderer’s from last week, and boy oh boy it was a difficult choice! Don’t forget to grab your “I Was Featured” badge of honor!

Natasha’s favorite came from Baby for Scale with the post Ominious Test…She Got Into The Bathroom

“Who doesn’t like to party…… I thought all the ideas were fantastic! I will definitely be using those some of those this Fall!”
