Join me in welcoming back Jessica from The Wondering Brain and Natasha from Epic Mommy Adventures my two amazing cohorts in fun! As well as our amazing co-hosts for October…Ophelia from Latina Mama Rama, Penny from The Real Housewife of Caroline County, Sara from Sweet Silly Sara, and Michelle from A Dish Of Daily Life! Stop in and give each of these wonderful women a warm and happy hello!

“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 post came from Judy H-J’s Thoughts with the post Do You Know The Guinep?
Saying, “Judy took me way back into my childhood! I loved guineps as a child, growing up on St. Croix. We would pick them and eat them all afternoon. This is probably one of the only reasons I miss not being in St. Croix (other than family, of course). Great post!”


Ophelia’s favorite came from My Personal Accent with the post Dollar Craft Halloween Wreath.
Saying, “What a great idea and it is so adorable. Dollar store items vary from store to store and you can personalize it to your interest. Definitely will try it soon!”

One Tipsy Chick

Penny’s favorite came from One Tipsy Chick with the post Flatter Yourself Part 1 – Accessories.
Saying, “I’m starting to rock statement necklaces and it’s nice to know which one works best with the neckline of the sweater or shirt I’m wearing!!”

New Mama Diaries

Sara’s favorite came from New Mama Diaries with the post Cloth Diapering – Is It Worth It?
Saying, “I have 2 children in diapers and I use both cloth and disposable. I can relate to the blogger about the expenses and the wonder of if the extra work of cloth is really worth the savings in the long run but the reduction of your carbon footprint is definitely worth the upfront expense of using cloth.”

One Tipsy Chick

Michelle’s favorite also came from One Tipsy Chick with the post Flatter Yourself Part 1 – Accessories.
Saying, “Especially the section on choosing necklaces for different necklines! I love things that take the guesswork out of it! This was really helpful!”

Barbie Bieber and Beyond - Raising Girls

My favorite came from Barbie, Bieber and Beyond with the post Dating Your Daughter.
“I also truly didn’t really care whether I had a boy or a girl, but I absolutely dreamed of having at least A little girl and was thrilled when my dream came true. Not that I don’t love my boys just as much, but the special things that I share with lil miss are amazing…tea parties, beauty days, tucking her in and chatting just like school girls should, an absolute dream come true!”

What fun! I can't wait to read (and follow) some new friends!


Monday 21st of October 2013

So many great blogs to follow! I need a full time job where I get paid to read my favorite blogs (new and old)! :)

I have to say, was it Natasha that has the two children ages 19 and 2? I think she hit one of my "personal mom hero" buttons. :)

Have a great Monday! Karen

The neckline post from One Tipsy Chick was awesome!!! I used to use my little sister for accessories and neckline help but I'm glad I don't have to do that anymore. It was embarrassing how badly I needed help!
