Friday Favories plus a Vlog!

I am the ultimate slacker. I don't think I participated in a single "blog everyday in July" prompt. OKAY... maybe slacker is a bad way to put it, even though it's true, but mostly after I started work I just got way too busy. Anyone else notice my posts going from 4 a week to two... maybe three? Yep. It happened.

HOWEVER! When Allie announced that the week would be finished with a bang (OK I lied she didn't really say that but that's what I read) I decided early in the week I'd participate today. Warning: I didn't edit anything, I'm pretty sure Zander asks me something in the middle, and I don't always look at the camera. So, translation: I'm not a professional "vlogger" LOL... also, SO sorry for all of the "um's" I'm laughing at myself so hard.

I'm so sorry for that embarrassing video, y'all. I can do nothing but laugh at myself.
Don't worry, we're not going to end this Friday with that. We're still linking up to share the blog love with Meagan!

+ Seriously, Sarah? Tells us about blogging friends.
I love this post because it's just the truth. Her advice is solid and you should listen to her. Or just be awesome and read her post, and then tell her how awesome she is!

+Lora lost a small child recently!!!
...and I say that in only the best way possible. Lora continues to amaze me with her postitive outlook and her continuous weight loss. It's really NOT easy to lose as much weight as she has, and I really admire how well she's done!

+ Ashley is That Southern Mama and her toddler says some funny stuff!
I laughed so hard reading this post. For two reasons: 1- my oldest has said all of these at some point and 2- her sweet little girl sounds so grown up! If you're around children for long periods of time, you will appreciate this post!

+ Rebekah at Living Lavender  tells us why this Famer's Market is the
The Dekalb Famer's Market. It's huge, it's cold, it's crowded... but it's SO worth it, y'all!

Cassie at Sage the Blog shares wedding pictures!
Who doesn't love wedding pictures? I know I love them, and I'm pretty sure I told Cassie that in my comments. This week she shared her pictures from getting ready for the wedding, and they're just stunning!

+ Bonus Round: all of the beautiful ladies that weren't "trying so hard" this week! You can find links to all of them at either Nicole's, Jade's, or Kate's pages.
