 MacDonald's Playland
macdonaldsplaylandbutton1_zps44d55767 
 "I'm Pamela Macdonald. Wife to Scott and mommy of Lilly & Everett. In this blog I share my life, creative outlets, and a smorgasbord of other topics I enjoy as I adventure through wifehood and motherhood (also, I can write words like "smorgasbord"). Perhaps my adventures, creative attempts, screw ups, lessons learned, or thoughts can be something you relate to? I know I'm not alone in this playland of life that has so much to offer...and neither are you." 



The More With Less Mom 

mwlmbadge 
 "I am a mom living in New Hampshire with a family of six (and five cats). I am the crazy neighbor with marker on her fingers, a cat in every window, and the Christmas tree up all year. I am a thrifty, crunchy, geeky, offbeat mother and housewife and spend a large amount of my time in an effort to spend less money while still enjoying the things we love the most. Here I will share any wisdom I come across." 


The Muddle-Headed Mamma

 "I am the (recently singled) mamma of two children, Ben (nine) and Annalisa (one). We live in a cottage under a hill by a river, where we play, read and cook together and plant pretty things in our garden...I'm a full-time mum turned high-school teacher turned full-time mum all over again...When left to my own devices, I like to read...I'm on a quest to become a better human being: a better mother, a better partner, a better daughter, a better sister, a better friend and a better stranger. I hope you join me on that journey." 


Prescriptions & Pearls

 "I'm Zoe!  I'm an 18 year old pharmacy student. I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend. I am a health and fitness fanatic, bookworm, and Pinterest addict. I like to blog about my life and the things that I love!" 


Oh My Heartsie Girl 

Karren Haller 
 "I am a mother of 4, have 5 grandchildren 2 great grandchildren and after working the last 18 years with my husband, I needed to reconnect with women and found that through blogging I have met some wonderful people. Some of my favorite things to do are cooking creating healthy meals and entertaining. I love to garden being outdoors, enjoy a good book and have a new love for Pinterest." 


Moving Mommy 

160e0a3510cd940933abb7f87628230e 
 "I am currently a stay-at-home-mom of two year old twins and a six year old who has lived in five states in six years (My husband’s job has required us to move… A LOT!). I am home preschooling the twins, Ella and Will, and Luke is in public kindergarten. I am passionate about clean eating and the environment. I am here to share moving tips, clean eating tips and recipes, preschool activities, sewing activities, and all the other fun stuff we do as a family! Enjoy!!!'

Diary of a Southern Shopper 

031DarcyWolfgang031514_ORDER_2 
 "Hey y’all, I’m Darci.  Yup, I’m from Texas, San Antonio to be exact. I was raised in a smaller town right outside of San Antonio and feel as if it was fate growing up in a place called Schertz (pronounced-shirts) and wanting to be a part of the ‘fashion world’. I created DOSS as an outlet for me to express my personal style outside of my Monday-Friday ‘corporate world’. I work in the criminal justice field so my style can range from chic and business casual to a weekend look that is a bit more laid back or edgy. I love shopping, and finding great deals, while being able to create outfits on a budget (my bank account thanks me). To say I’m obsessed with shoes is an understatement and my wardrobe screams with color and prints. I hope you join me on this stylish journey as I continue with my shopping habits and daily outfits."

Making It In The Mountains

20140216-140000 
"My name is Kristi. I am a wife, a mother & a teacher. We live in the most gorgeous little mountain town full of charm, friendly faces and SO many fun things to do! We just bought a new home that is beautiful, but boring & I can't wait to transform it and make it our own. I write about whatever interests me at the moment and, since I change my mind constantly and have far too many hobbies, you just never know what it might be." 


Ooh La Lovely Blog 

Aly edit crop 
"Welcome to Ooh La Lovely blog. I'm Aly, the writer of this blog I'm also the wife to the most handsome man I've ever seen and the mom to the most adorable little boy. This is a lifestyle blog where I will share my favorite recipes, DIY projects, things that I'm loving on and what life with my energetic, but totally rad, 3 yr old looks like I hope you stick around and follow along in this crazy adventure I call life." 


Penny's Vintage Home

PicMonkey Collage8 
"I have a passion for decorating! I love to use pastels to decorate our home...my style is a mix of Romantic, Country, and Cottage all rolled into one!" 


Pink Recipe Box

us1 
"I’m Nicky and I am completely, utterly, head-over-heels in love with food. I plan my days around it, I plan my vacations around it, I plan my entire life around it. You could say food has become a bit of an obsession with me. And I could reply that that is a bit of an understatement.  I have absolutely no culinary training and I’ve never been to a single cooking or baking class in my life. Everything I know I’ve learned through research, trial and error, and watching countless cookery programmes on TV. In case you’re wondering, Come Dine With Me is my favourite. Not really a cookery programme per say, but it’s still where my heart’s at." 


Make It Easy Crafts

Makeiteasycraftsbutton-1-1-1 
"As Shakespeare said, "A rose by any other name woud smell as sweet." So I'm thinking that it means if you call a rose a peony, it will still be the same. Not so, for surnames it sems. My name is Crystal. I started out as Crystal Harris, spent some time as Crystal Harris Ogle and ended up as Crystal Harris Donnelly. If you’re a woman don't you just hate the fact that you always end up changing your name when you marry or remarry. Anything you did pre-second marriage is erased. It’s just not fair." 


Taylor Made Ranch

taylormade 
I’ve heard the phrase “Bloom where you’re planted” and I’m so blessed to have been planted here!  On this blog I hope to share a wide range of posts. There is of course the joy of a new calf and the worry of droughts and floods, but I’ll also share a glimpse into daily life on the ranch. So sit back & enjoy the ride – we love it and so will you!”
