Last night turned into a family dinner-prepping lunch-watching Lost-no computer kind of night :) Nick’s parents were passing through so we ended up having dinner with them on their way – impromptu dinners are fun!
Because the original plan was to make dinner, I didn’t have my camera with me, but I had a great veggie quesadilla with guacamole and black beans on the side. And I changed into pajamas as soon as we got home so I wouldn’t smell like the restaurant all night.
Since we got home later than normal, we just babied Maggie all night until Lost came on ;) And – I’m not happy how the end of that show is looking right now – anyone else?
Today I’m spreading the blog love!
If you’re anything like me, you read a ridiculous amount of blogs. I’m kind of surprised that reading blogs isn’t my job because I spend so much time doing exactly that.
I love finding new blogs to read from people that have different viewpoints, talents, and interests – it gives me the opportunity it hear about topics I would never research on my own time and really see what other people are thinking about on a daily basis.
Some of my newest favorites that just got added to my Google Reader this week:
While food is the common denominator in most of the blogs I read, the main reason I read is because there’s something about the person that I admire.
Want to know what I love about some of my favorite bloggers?
Mama Pea’s humor – I seriously laugh out loud, at least once, in almost every post. And I just hope my future kids are as cute as Gigi and Lulu.
Rose’s passion for storytelling. This lady is an artist in the true sense of the word and I look forward to each and every post.
Katie’s crazy creations, daily use of chopsticks, and all around blogger-love.
Christie’s ability to find the right words, no matter the topic. She’s incredibly open and honest, and that’s something that I appreciate in this blogging world.
Polly. I know I’ve said this before, but her posts really are like rays of sunshine in my day.
Sophia’s writing, period. And her insane recipes that make me want to lick the screen.
Joe & Betsy’s ability to truly capture moments on film – their pictures are always beautiful and can tell a story all their own.
Allison’s sense of humor…and love for her dogs :) I don’t feel so bad about being crazy dog (and cat) lady now!
Quinn – it seems like she just has such a great balance in her life, doesn’t it? Work, social life, family, friends, hobbies – she’s busy, but you can tell she’s enjoying life ;)
Holly – everything! She’s funny, she’s real, and she’s not afraid to show it.
I obviously read many more blogs than just those listed above, but I have quite a diverse group!
Maybe we all have some things in common, but I’m happy to have found people that share interests or ideas and have such different backgrounds and opinions and passions.
And I think we all need to be featured at some point – to share more about us, why we do what we do, and what we’re like behind the blog.
If YOU want to be featured on Behind the Blog, shoot me an email! I’ll send some questions you can answer and I’ll be posting them so everyone can “meet” you if they haven’t already :)
