Angie chose Gardening: How To Build A Bean Teepee from Mother 2 Mother. “My Bean Teepees never seem to last the summer so I resorted to putting up a bean fence but I think that the teepee is so much more pleasing to the eye (& so cool!). This Teepee looks like it would be very sturdy & last the entire summer!”

1 pom blanket

Karen chose Pom Pom Throw Blanket from Delineate Your Dwelling. “This is a great tutorial and the finished throw looks great with the pom pom detail. I have the same pom pom maker as Amy and like her, I love using it.”

Katie also chose this post. “I love this blanket for a number of reasons. First of all, it’s a Target clearance find … My favorite kind! Second of all … I had NO idea you could buy a Pim Pom Maker! This would have saved me SO much time when I made 80 Poms for a wreath last Christmas! I may need to acquire one ASAP. Plus the Poms add so much fun to the blanket!! Such a simple upgrade, but I love the result!!”

Rhonda chose Thrift Store Lamp Makeover from Budget Girl. “I fell in love with these lamp shades when I saw them months ago, but they didn’t fit into my décor. Imagine my surprise when I found them on these beautifully made over thrift store lamps. Love them!”

Carolyn chose The Best Italian Pasta Salad Ever! from Put A Bird On It. “This recipe is perfect for summer and it really does look like it would be the BEST pasta salad ever and I can’t wait to try it!”

Debbie chose Chicken Grapefruit Salad with Wasabi Dressing May CIC from Spatulas On Parade. “This recipe sounds so yummy I can’t wait to try it. The ingredients are original and I never would have thought to put them together. I also love that the recipe came to be as a crazy ingredient challenge.”

Jessica chose Am I Ready to Buy A Home On My Own? from Surviving and Thriving in the Second Year of My Divorce. “What she’s going through reminded me of buying my 1st home after my divorce with the ex. It signified my independence and new life with my son who was 8 at the time. I remembered when it felt soo good to be me again! I hope she enjoys her new found identity :-).”

feeling-fat-1024x1022

Gurvy chose In a rut – Feeling Fat, Frumpy, and Foolish from Failing Perfect. “I can relate, I feel fat, frumpy and foolish a lot! I thank her for reminding me it’s a choice & we have the power to change the way we feel! There is no ‘perfect’, we make ‘perfect’.”

Jillian chose Managing Emotions During Pregnancy from Snippets of Inspiration. “While I was pregnant I went through loads of emotions and having a post like this would have helped me understand my emotions much better.”

Toy to garden Robin

Rachel chose Upcycled Toy Horse into a Garden Sculpture from Redo It Yourself Inspiration. “I thought this was unique and amazingly well done. I would not even have known it was a toy horse had I not seen the tutorial!”

spring-cleaner

Stacey chose The Spring Cleaner Smoothie from Raia’s Recipes. “I have been blessed with a super picky eater for a child and I often worry that he doesn’t get enough of the important things that come from fruits and veggies and this is a smoothie that I think he might actually drink, I know that I sure would! Thank you for sharing!”

Starbucks Lemon Loaf by Yesterfood alt 2

Cathy chose Starbucks Lemon Loaf from Yesterfood. “My son worked for Starbucks for 3 years. My favorite sweet treat was their Lemon Cake! I can’t wait to try this recipe!”

Natasha chose The Blogging Blues from Momfever. “I have had my share of blogging blues in the past 1 1/2 years since I started blogging. It’s amazing the posts that go popular on my blog – they are mostly those posts that I write in 5 minutes, whereas the posts that I put time, love, and passion into only receives a minimal response. But I love how this post identifies those feelings and talks about how to get past it. Great post!”
