Blogger Love v.9

I'm one of those people who gets super weird whenever anyone in my real life brings up my blog. I know that most of the people who read it are my own friends and family, but I write with an honesty that just isn't really as prevalent in my real life, so I get squirmy whenever anyone mentions it. I like keeping my blogging life separate. I like that the friendships I've made here feel real, even if we've never met in real life. I like that I can talk to people in similar phases of life, that I may not have in real life. I like that I can be friends, without obligation.

All that is to say, I'm so thankful for this weird, little cyberspace of mine and I love sharing it with my fellow bloggers. Here are some that deserve a shout-out.

All the Joys - Blogger Love

The perfect summer reading for every Myers-Briggs personality type by Modern Mrs. Darcy | I swing somewhere between an INFP and an INFJ. Both books for those two categories are my TWO FAVORITE BOOKS. Seriously, her choices are uncannily accurate.

Why we aren't sharing our baby's name by The Florkens | Although, we didn't officially announce Charlie's name until he was born, his name was one of our frontrunners for most of my pregnancy. I really wanted to keep his name a secret, but Chuck and I are both blabber mouths. I don't know why people feel the need to share their opinions of your baby name choices, but if there's a next time for us, I don't want to tell a soul. If someone tells you they want to name their baby Moonshine Dungbeetle- just smile and nod! Seriously! That had little to do with Kate's post, but you should read it, regardless of my neverending rant.

Why Jurassic World's success is actually a bad thing by A Peek at Karen's World | No spoilers here, but both Chuck and I were kind of disappointed when we saw the highly anticipated movie last weekend. The plot just felt so uncreative and cliche. I heard they're continuing the franchise, so I hope they step up their game next time. I'm glad someone else agrees with me!

He Saw Us by The Lady Okie | If you love a good "God moment" story, this is a really, really good one.

What I Read in May by hellorigby! | Not only do I love Jenn's taste in books, but I love the format that she posts her book challenge statuses and reviews. Is bookophilia a thing? Because I totally have it.

The Truth About Labor by Jen+Eric Generation |  I don't want to spoil anything, but there is a Harry Potter reference in this post that is pure gold. I still think this is the best description of labor that I've ever read.


  1. The first blog post you shared with book recommendations according to Meyers Briggs personality - fascinating!

  2. Hey there! Just found your blog, love this space! Thanks for sharing these, I'm an INFJ so I'm pretty excited there are books based on MBTI types! :)

  3. I'm determined that when the time comes to have children I won't be finding out the sex of the baby, thus making it near impossible to share baby's name before he/she is born!

  4. Yay! So glad you found me! Thanks for stopping by :)

  5. I wanted to do that, but have zero self control. I really want to try if there's a next time, though! :)
