Happy Saturday, SITS-tahs! How is January treating you so far? It seems many have been struck down by a particularly vicious flu season. I do hope you ladies look after yourselves and stay germ-free!
Last week’s first Sharefest of the year saw many sharing their resolutions, goals and one word aspirations. I hope you’re going strong with those.
Some highlights from last week
Frugal Foodie Mama makes some good points as to why mothers should NOT be keeping score sheets – yes, let’s just drop the working mom versus stay-at-home mom debate already, shall we?
Marie of Make Your Own Damn Dinner has a confession to make – maybe one that you can relate to? Hint: it has something to do with a British boy band. Ahem.
Are you allergic to exercise? Kimberly of Rubber Chicken Madness thinks she might be in this hilarious post!
Your turn to share!
Post a link to your favorite post of the week in the comments, then visit the commenter above you. Don’t stop at one, click on a few other links, you may meet a new friend! Let’s share the comment love.
And, don’t forget our #SITSSharefest Twitter Party happening at 10:00 AM EST / 7:00 AM PST on Saturday. It’s a great way to get one of your posts some extra love on Twitter!
Happy sharing, reading, tweeting and have a great weekend!
Why I love this community and why I believe mom bloggers (and women in general) should support other mom bloggers. Enjoy!

Happy Sharefest, SITStahs! I don’t have a post to share this week since I had guests on both my blogs, but I will be by to check out some posts, anyway! 🙂 Have an awesome weekend! 🙂
My favorite post this week was written after a tough day teaching – and thinking about the future effects of our over-testing culture on my own daughter. I’m Afraid of Kindergarten: http://toddlersummer.com/2013/01/07/im-afraid-of-kindergarten/
Can’t wait to read some of your posts!

Beth (OMG! Yummy) says
Happy Saturday everyone! This was my first full week back at blogging, driving, school, driving, working, and did I mention driving? Who’s glad it’s Saturday!!!!
Well, I posted twice this week – a big accomplishment for me. Can I brag just a little since I’ve known you guys so long? My friend and I were written up in the Ventura County Star about a new virtual cooking group we are starting called Tasting Jerusalem – they had us cook simultaneously while chatting on Skype since we live 300 miles apart. Lots of fun!
and if it’s a little chilly where you are, I posted a simple soup recipe. Have a great weekend!

Here are my thoughts about the truths about motherhood that everyone fails to tell new moms. http://wellroundedhome.com/2013/01/11/what-moms-to-be-dont-hear/
Happy Saturday! I am one of the many FINALLY getting better after the flu. Hope everyone stays healthy!
Just re-vamped my running playlist for 2013…here are a few of my new faves. Happy Saturday!
Kristen Daukas says
Happy Saturday!! My fav post this week was yesterday’s… when I discovered the crazy world of over the top moms to be… Fetus Festival!!
my favorite post was about my daughter’s sewing skills
I started a new series on my blog this week to chronicle how I meet my reading goal this year! Come check it out.
Laurie @ Pride in Photos says
It has been a full week again. Our college team went to the Nationals on Monday night…boo hoo lost. I did the cutest collage on it with our new grandson. We were forntunate enough to find some awesome shell art on the beach…a sea turtle with her baby!! Then to end the week, I shared the next part of our California trip to Sonoma…heavenly.
I hope you will come join the fun.
Most of all happy Saturday Sharefest to YOU!
I wrote about the Canadian Inuit artist Kenojuak Ashevak who died this week, aged 85. She was born in an igloo, but became a world-renowned artist and was awarded some of Canada’s highest honours. I learned a lot about her this week, and even found a 1963 film that shows her and her family at their igloo with the northern lights as a backdrop…. captivating. (the film is linked in the post.)
Hope everyone has a great weekend! I’m off to a WordPress conference today, yay!
Happy Saturday Y’all!
I tried leaving a comment on your site but for some reason I’m having technical difficulty. Didn’t want you to think I wasn’t doing my “sharefest” part! Lovely idea with your “first five” by the way, and it’s reminded me that I want to start sending small gifts to people as surprises 🙂
Happy Saturday, everyone!
This week I wrote a post a lot of us can relate to…..
Happy Sharefest! Here is my favorite from this week: There are opportunities for creativity all around us … http://www.melissaedwards.org/imported-20120430010433/2013/1/10/opportunities-for.html
This week I shared an amazing story about my son…
Emily Lynne @ The Best of this Life says
Good Morning + Happy Saturday!! Hope your weekend is off to a great start!! Today I’m sharing my toddler’s in-home photo shoot, and why aperture mode works best for me – as well as why capture kids in the their natural element is a better bet than at the portrait studio! For this shoot, I used the Canon 5d Mark III.
FULL POST HERE: http://www.bestofthislife.com/2013/01/toddler-photo-shoot-my-little-mister.html
Have a lovely weekend! xo
I wrote about some books I’m planning to read…and asked for suggestions!
Happy Saturday. In this post, I discuss how blogging sometimes can feel like staring at a blank white wall. I also discuss peanut butter and jelly. Read why and come get a giggle !
This is a tough one this week. While the post I wrote today definitely has a lot of poignant information and is more along the lines of how I generally write the one I wrote How You Know There’s A Teenager In Your Home got lots of great feedback and hits this week. So I guess I’ll go with that. Oddly enough I didn’t find it to be my best work, but others thought it was funny, which I wasn’t even going for. Small victory actually since I had a real hard time getting that one started. Maybe I need to try more posts like that. But if you feel like it also check out today’s post on my site, Does Having More Children Make You An Expert Parent?
Hi Monica. I just placed a comment on your site and I followed you on FB, Twitter and Pinterest. I can surely relate as I have 3 daughters myself – i have more tweens then teens but every single thing you wrote i can relate with. LOL, LOL, LOL
LOL thanks Melissa. And thanks for stopping by. My middle daughter hasn’t quite gotten to the status of her sister yet. She has her own tween ways though. Since so many liked this I’ll have to do a tween post I think ;).
Laurali Star says
My favorite post this week was on the Twilight: Breaking Dawn II Soundtrack. I had watched the movie the night before and of course did my research and discovered yet again, an amazing soundtrack! Plus, it was the perfect way to end the entire saga with style.
very interesting! and oh, how i love twilight! my sister, in fact, is a twilight addict. http://girliemom.com/all-things-twilight/
i will tell her to check out your site! 🙂
Laurali Star says
Lol, yes, I confess, I’m a Twilight Mom:-) Thanks for sending your sister my way! On my way to check out yours right now, Melissa:-)
Happy Saturday Everyone! I just got back from Holiday traveling & am sharing some of my adventure 🙂

Good morning and Happy Saturday!
Blogging can be HARD! But even on the hardest day, I still love it! I’ve been making a lot of changes I’m excited about, such as:
-Starting a forum where we can discuss home decor, beauty, career and lots more
-Opening up spots for guest posts
-Launching an ad page (ads start at just $3 during January)
This week’s post is about headboard wall decals…it’s a genius idea! Please show Glam-a-Peel some love and check out their page. Thank you!
Hi Pricilla, I just left you a comment on your blog and a question too! thanks for the decorating tip, really cool stuff!
I’d love to share how one small change can make a difference for your health and life.

Oh, yeah – we’ve had the flu or something like it. Just about all of us have had it by now. My husband seems to be the last one. He’s getting better but still feels miserable!
My favorite post this week was about how to get rid of paper clutter.
Happy Saturday!!! Looking forward to discovering some new great reads today! My fav post of the week is my 1st weekly recap of 2013. Enjoy 🙂
michelle @ this little light says
Happy Saturday! I think my favorite post this week was the “No More ‘More’” post, because it’s one of my 2013 philosophies … I’m sick of being surrounded by “stuff”!
[email protected] says
This week I wrote about 2 things I saved for my children from my childhood.
The flu hit us last week too. Hopefully, no one else gets it. I saw that post from Rubber Chicken Madness and thought is was so funny! Great pick! 🙂
Happy Saturday!! Just before we got sick I wrote about how well our week back to school was going. I was sort of waiting for it to all fall apart. http://www.themommymess.com/2013/01/were-accident-free.html
Good Morning ladies!! Hope everyone had a FANTABULOUS week!! My husband and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary this week…WHOOP WHOOP! My post consisted of a list of 24 things that we, as wives, should consider in order to keep our marriage flames a burnin’. Some are serious and challenging, others are humorous…but they’ll all give you something to think about. Have a wonderful weekend my sistahs…much love to you all!
Rediscovering Our Family says
This week I posted my Top 10 Mommy Confessions. I’m not proud, they are pretty, but they are what they are…
Today across local blogs we are holding an cyber vigil for Ka’Sandra Wade and other women who have been the victim of domestic violence/intimate partner abuse.
My favorite post of the week was the one where I shared about my recent identity theft experience.
Happy Saturday Ladies!
Chris Carter says
Oh Ladies…you are NOT gonna wanna miss this. Seriously. I asked my daddy blogger friend some serious questions about the ever elusive puzzling pieces of a man. It was a fun fun dialogue and I KNOW you will be amused and entertained!!

This is freaking hysterical
Arlene @FlourOnMyFace says
I seem to be in a funk so far in the new year. I can’t seem to get back to my work schedule. Only one post this week and I could use some comment love on it. Thanks! Have a great weekend!
