After finally clearing out my huge number of unread posts on bloglines, I realized quickly that the general concensus is that blogging is taking a back seat for many people.  I’ve said it before, facebook is just flat out easier than blogging.  Instant social gratification.  You can type one sentence and connect with fifty people you haven’t seen in fifteen years.  But, I still refuse to end the blog.  I like the way I can look back at what happened two years ago in April or what that recipe was that we liked… just by searching my posts.  I still love the blog. 

In honor of “blogging…”  I am gonna list my fave five things I read on other people’s blogs this week.

1.  My friend Dena “growing up girlie” way over in S.C. has an adorable children’s shop.  She has been dabbling in sewing clothes for her sweet little girl Annie (her last name is my maiden name!).  Cool huh?  Well she made this adorable little outfit and I am so on this!  If I ever get a free moment I am going to attempt this for Iz.


2.  I’ve really been intending to make this pizza I saw posted on BIGMAMA‘s blog!


3.  This was a great devo on Internet Cafe…

4.  Sandra posted a monkey bread recipe!  Matt made monkey bread when I saw it posted on Pioneer Woman a few weeks ago.  YUM.  Sandra’s reminder made me want to have some this weekend!  Sandra always posts delish recipes.


5.  OHAmanda’s top ten tuesday list!  Love her!

I realize that over half of this post was about food.  There were other interesting things I read on blogs… like some info on the Gosselins I almost wish I hadn’t read, Kat saying she was going to quit blogging, Gail making tents in her dining room with the grandkids which reminded me of the tents we used to make in the dining room, and lots of other fun stuff.  Amazon books rock.

Blogging is taking a backset for me as well. It makes me sad though because I have loved my blog for 3 years and I miss it. I hate Facebook, btw. I seriously DO NOT want to reconnect with people from high school. So I avoid Facebook like The Plague. LOL

I’m on my way out the door to the lab to get more bloodwork done. Pray for me.

Love you!

Was this a sign you were hungry when you posted?

I almost always have food on my fave fives, too!

I’m still loving blogging, but Facebook is fun, too.

My future daughter-in-law made some great monkey bread a while back. Good stuff!

Nothin in the world wrong with having 5 fav’s all about food! I just might do it sometime!! And that monkey bread is to die for with a cup of coffee!! LOL Now I love Facebook too but it will never take the place of blogging for me…..I know you feel the ease of self-expression in it also! LOL

I nearly always have food in my FFF, too ….

I’ve got the Pilsbury stuff to make monkey bread on my grocery list.

Blogging is more of a connection to me than Facebook. I actually really don’t get into facebook or Twitter.

I’m pretty sure I usually have some type of food in my fave five list. LOL.

Hi Annie! I am so sorry to be so late to thank you for changing my signature to match my crazy bright blog page! That was so sweet of you–and you know, blogging is hard to do on such a regular basis, but I am not all that enamoured with facebook. I feel that I can be more creative with my blog. I hope you have a great weekend, and again, thank you!

That Monkey bread looks delicious.

I’m trying to get back to the blogging on a more regular basis, but this week I haven’t done so good!
I’ve read stuff too a/b the Gosselins, sad sad; and for their families sake I think the show should end. Sometimes I think they air all that bad stuff trying to get ratings up and I don’t like that either!
