Five Fabulous Bloggers




Thanks to Trop50 for sponsoring my writing about fabulous bloggers. This year Trop50 is granting 50 Fabulous Wishes. Click here to enter for a chance to win $1,000 to celebrate a friend with a refreshing attitude about looking and feeling fabulous!

I get the opportunity to pick five bloggers I find fabulous. Now, most of the time, when you read these lists, you read the same bloggers over and over again--the Pioneer Woman, Dooce, Kelle Hampton, etc. All of these are awesome blogs, and yes, I do read them, but there are so many fabulous blogs out there that don't have the big names behind them but are still absolutely awesome to read.

So, in no particular order, here are five of my favorite blogs that you need to read!

1. Do They Have Salsa in China? - I actually had the pleasure of meeting M3 and the amazing Ro & Ree in Chicago on a blogger McDonald's trip. M3 is as sweet as can be and the twins are as awesome and fun in person as they are on her blog. F&B love reading the blog with me to keep up with their little California friends and have decided that we need to go visit them someday.

2. C.R.A.F.T. - I swear this is one of the coolest blog names ever. CRAFT stands for Creating Really Awesome Free Things and is full of amazing inexpensive (or free) projects for the home and beyond. I have pages upon pages of this blog bookmarked as must tries, Jamie (the author) is incredibly talented and the projects she designs are unbelievable.

3. Happy Little Bento - As you probably know, I love all things bento and could probably populate this list with a plethora of bento blogs. I'm attempting to limit it to just one, so I'm going with Sheri at Happy Little Bento, since her kids are similar in age to mine. I get so many awesome ideas from her, and the food looks divine.

4. Notes from the Cookie Jar - I connected with Karen via Twitter, as she's the menu planning editor at EverythingMom. Notes from the Cookie Jar is her personal blog and amazingly well written, full of insight, and yummy recipes.

5. Muffin Tin Mom - Michelle is another fun food blogger I connected with via Twitter. Muffin Tin Meals are exactly what they sound like--meals served in a muffin tin. But don't underestimate the power of presentation when it comes to small children. F&B are quite sure that food tastes better when served in a muffin tin!

That's my five, for now, I could have easily come up with another 5, and another, and another, but those may have to wait for another post.

Don't forget to enter the 50 Fabulous Wishes contest for a chance to win $1,000 to celebrate a friend with a refreshing attitude about looking and feeling fabulous. I was selected for this Tropicana Trop50 sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do. I received compensation to use and facilitate my post.
