Tasty Tuesday

So maybe some of us aren't as hungry as we should be....thank you turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. But we still host a Tasty Tuesday every week and would love to see what your cooking up. You can link something you made for Thanksgiving, a recent baked good, a photo of something yummy and scrumptious or a recipe. Today we're making some good ol' chicken salad. It's light and fresh. Now, I'm going to just cook up the barbecue chicken we've had in the freezer and slap it on a really light salad. It's perfect for dinner especially since we've been so stuffed lately. { pic } <center><a href=""><img border="0" src="" /></a></center> Share what your Tasty Tuesday Meal or Treat is. We'd love to see. Have a great day!

Magical Monday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to a new week of blog hops and features. We're happy to be introducing fresh new blogs and making this community a place to share all your wonderful adventures. Mondays are Magical, so link up and start waving those wands at as many blogs as possible. If your new here and have not yet linked to a hop, we would encourage you to do so. It's a great way to find you first of all and secondly it's going to build your readership. And that's exactly what we encourage. We want you to stumble across blogs that interest you, blogs that you like. We do not encourage a follow for a follow. Do not feel pressured to do something you don't want to do. That's the exact reason we have no rules for our weekly link ups. We want you to feel at ease in making friends. We want you feel comfortable. This site is to help you get noticed and we want everyone to respect everyone. <center><a <SPAN style="BACKGROUND: yellow" class=<

If you'd like to be a full post feature, please read here .   For The Love of Blogs Introduces: Sweet Blessings Welcome!  My name is Jenifer and I am a blessed housewife and stay at home mom.  I home school my four precious children and love every second of it.  My husband and I work in outreach ministry at our church, I lead the woman's ministry, and I have a prayer group for moms.  Between the kiddos and church we stay very busy but we love it that way! I am not a writer by any means, I am simply a woman who wants to be used by God.  About a year ago I felt God leading my to write.  My first reaction was to laugh!  Yes, I actually laughed at God!  But I am learning to be a woman who says "yes" to God so it was time for me to say yes.  I realized God did not mean for me to write a book, He wanted me to blog.  So I started   Sweet Blessings  in August and I blog daily.  When you come to Sweet Blessings you will find encouragement through devotions.  I write abou

Featured Blog: Carrie With Children

If you'd like to get a featured post, click here for more details. For The Love of Blogs Introduces Carrie With Children My entire life I never thought I'd be a mom ...I'm about as tomboy as you can get.  I loved sports, I hated dresses, I hated shopping for clothes and I didn't even like the color pink. The day I became a mom to Maggie and Molly, all of that changed (except for the sports thing).  Yep...the tomboy ended up with two girls.  Now, I love for my girls to wear dresses, I don't mind clothes shopping (for them) and I'm finally coming around to liking the color pink.  Isn't it funny how everything you thought you knew changes once you are a mom.  Suddenly, what *you* want/like/dislike doesn't matter anymore - it's all about what your children wants/likes/dislikes!  Some moms may think that's the wrong thing to do, but for's exactly the right thing to do.  I've decided to suck it up and embrace the things my inner

The Faces Behind FTLOB!

Hi! I'm Vic. I began sharing my life on blogger back in 09'. We had just moved far from family and networking seemed to be the best outlet for me. It became my best friend if you will. I discovered more about myself. I began to realize who I wanted to be and what I wanted to share. My personal blog changed a lot over the years. The more you blog, the more you grow! I struggled fitting into communities. A lot seemed fake, like a whole lot of non-sense. My mission wasn't to go follow everyone just to get a follow, it was to connect with real people on a real level. I soon realized that it wasn't the place to share my space on the web and wanted to build something for every blogger to connect. Not just moms, not just 20 somethings but everyone! FTLOB was born out of a teeny idea. I wasn't sure how I was going to go into this, rather just went with the flow and before I knew it, bloggers were connecting, sharing same thoughts here and it felt great! I could share my o
