Blog friend spotlight

Want a dose of retro cool with some great humor thrown in? Take a visit over to Amy's site today "I Love Retro Things."

I love her header. People who know me in person know I have a thing for plates. I've held back on showing you my full plate obsession on Vintage Thingies Thursdays, but suffice to say, I could name all the lines of plates in her header without the tags.

She is such a wonderful mom, she bakes goodies for her kids lunches. Go check out her recipe for banana chocolate cupcakes!

If I lived near Amy, I would want to flip through all of her vintage magazines and borrow her steamy novels. Go check out the covers! Great stuff.

But I don't live near Amy, because she's in New Zealand. But through the wonder of the internet, we can visit her as if she's next door.

Next you need to visit my blog friend Laura, of "Catholic Teacher Musings." I love her blog. Her avatar is a picture of Jan from The Brady Bunch. She's a big fan of the Brady Bunch, which proves we are long lost sisters. I never missed an episode of that show.

She's starting a trend with Bad Haiku Friday, but I think my favorite poem of hers is an anti-ode to Dana Torres. Go read it now. It needs to be published somewhere.

My only fear is that she prints out my blog and takes a red pen to it every day, since she admits to being a grammer dork. I'm sure I flunk!

I love Laura's writing, and she's also a a real-life pal of another of my favorites, Cheryl from Twinfatuation. Their broken playdate left *me* in tears.


So in honor of these two great bloggers, I am passing along this award I recently received:

I hope you enjoy it ladies, as much as I enjoy your blogs. And Laura, what's for dinner? Pork chops and applesauce?

5 people stopped folding laundry to write:

First: I love that your comments say that I am stopping folding laundry...because I HATE folding laundry so I try to leave it in an annoying place so my sweet adorable husband will fold it...he folds like a GAP employee. Major marriage perk.
Second: I am a grammar dork, but nearly every one of my posts has errors in it. I decided to stop freaking about it....be "chill" I'm actually surprised that on one has told me to stop acting like I don't split an infinitive or two.
Third: I am so very humbled by your kind words about, well, everything. I have sent that poem to a few places- we'll see.
I am sending the praise right back. I enjoy the wit and creativity of your blog (as well as the nick names of your kids).

What is the name for someone who comments on a blog as though it is HIS/HER own blog? That is what I am doing right now. Could this be any longer?
Seriously.
This is pretty long.

Pork chops and applesauce...I'll make that as soon as Cindy loses her lisp.

A thousand thank yous for your kindnesses. (And I am already loving this retro blog- automatic "favorite."

Oh, I love finding new blogs. Thanks for the tips. And I'd flunk if anyone came to check the grammar at my blog too - I'm dreadful at it. The typo's don't help either.
