weekend reads

I know I’m late today, but I was a busy girl yesterday and didn’t get a chance to write anything!  So, instead of writing a long, meaningful post, I am going to send you to some other blogs to read their wonderful stuff!

Recently, I have had a couple of my IRL (in real life) friends start blogs, and I can’t even begin to tell you how happy that makes me!  The thing about being a blogger is that EVERYONE knows about your life, but you know about no one else’s.  So I get really excited when I have friends who start up blogs.

Here are 3 of my absolutely favorite reads lately, all written by my IRL friends:

In Our Own Little World

My friend Sarah is a new mom for the second time around!  I have so much enjoyed reading her journey into becoming a mom of 2 beautiful kids!  I am soaking in everything she says about mommy-hood as I prepare myself to become a first time mom.

Melissa’s blog is all about food, crafts/decorating, and teaching!  I’ve never gotten to observe Melissa teach before, but just from reading about her teaching experience, I know she is an incredible teacher.  And so passionate about her subject matter (science) and her students!  She is my teaching inspiration – I hope that when (fingers crossed) I land a teaching job in public school, I can have the same impact on my kids as I know she has on hers.

Kevin is actually my former boss and probably one of the most knowledgeable people I know.  He is so passionate about the things he loves:  his family, his career, and his hobbies.  And of course, he is a very talented writer.  He had me in tears reading about his personal experience with the Joplin tornado this year.  It is an absolute must read.
