Featured Blog: The Mean Girl Diaries

Hey friends. Welcome to another fab feature. Kick back and relax...we're going for a ride.  Meet- The Mean Girl Diaries I used to dislike kids, I didn't want them in my life or even behind me in the grocery line. "Solipsistic creatures." I'd mutter while passing a whiney brat at the mall. Children weren't my cup of tea, nor did my future plans include them. Everything changed after I met my husband. Imagine that. I was destined to have a child, a daughter, as mean as myself. Except with curly hair. Hi! I'm the Mean Girl, Rachel. I love my husband, photography, reading, writing, crafting, fashion and most of all I love my two-year old daughter, the Mini Mean. My husband Mr. Mean Girl, or MMG, is away most of the time saving the world. He was gone two hundred and eighty eight days last year. Yeah, it's like that. It frees me up for writing and reading obsessively (100 books last year) and for taking pictures of the mini mean like a crazed lunatic. I am

Featured Blog: My Own Little Corner

Hello there, bloggy friends!  It is so nice to meet you.  My name is Erin, and I have a lovely little home at My Own Little Corner .  I'm a 21 year old college grad, who is excited to start teaching elementary school in the fall!  It's hard for me to define what my blog is about, but I think it's safe to say my blog centers around things I love.  And here are some things I just happen to love. I love cake.  I took some cake decorating classes a few years ago, and I was totally smitten.  I'm not a professional, by any means, but it is something I love to do. I love my pug, Maximus.  He just celebrated his 10th birthday.  (Happy Birthday Max!)  He is my little fur baby, and he makes me so very happy.  I love my family.  I have a small, very close family.  My family members are some of my best friends.  I don't have any kids of my own, but you will hear a lot of stories about my little nephew, Eli!  I love Jesus.  I am a follower of Jesus Christ, and I try to always ma

A Life So Lovely Hi! I'm Rachel  I am a soon-to-be-college-graduate navigating the world of Law school applications and sorority functions while still trying to find the time to hang out with friends and blog. I am a Nashville girl at heart but moved to the Bluegrass State for college. The Kentucky Derby, coal mines, and UK basketball might be what you think of when you think of Kentucky, but they have only played minor parts in my time as a resident Kentuckian. I am a sociology and anthropology major who specializes in the study of Nashville Songwriters. And yes, I do get course credit for going to writers’ nights and concerts! Right now I am making a movie about Nashville Songwriters. Right now I am also freaked out by the thought of editing film for hours. T

We're meeting some of the most fabulous blogs in history. Jump in and link up whenever possible. Grab a cup and relax, we have a blast of great features daily. FTLOB Introduces:  Shutter Mama Being a young mother at 21 was something I never imagined for myself, nor was getting pregnant out of marriage. Because of my background and current steadfast belief in God, I didn't expect to find myself in the situation that I did. But, as we all know, things happen...and for whatever reason, I got pregnant the first time. I was so scared to tell my family and friends but I was longing to talk to someone, anyone. So I decided to start a blog. Really, with no idea that I was going to gain any notice, it was just to write and expose my heart without judgment. And blogging had become therapy for me. As time had passed and my daughter

Featured Blog: A Day in the Life of a Hockey Wife

Welcome friends, to another great feature! We're super happy you're all here sharing with us! Meet..... A Day in the Life of a Hockey Wife My Story Truth be told, I am still figuring this one out. I am 25 years old. I am married to a man who plays hockey for a living. I am the mother to a wonderfully amazing little boy, Linden (after Trevor Linden of the Vancouver Canucks). I studied Political Science, History and Spanish in University and had hopes of going to law school. I shouldn’t say ‘had’ … I still ‘have’ hopes of going to law school.  Meeting my husband and having a child has drastically changed the five year plan I drafted after University. For now, my five year plan has been put on hold. The way I see it, these next few years are about supporting my husband, raising our son, and enjoying our adventures. In hockey, players have a shelf-life. There are only so many more years that my husband can continue to play the sport he loves. Law school may be on hold but
