Friday Five: Favorite Blogs

friday favorites(1)

TGIF! Yep, I’m thrilled that another Friday is upon us. Any big fun things happening in your world this weekend or are you planning to be low-key? I don’t have a lot plans for anything spectacular. Hope to run on Saturday morning and then tackle my to-do list. There is always a to-do list!

Lately, I’ve been trying to branch out and “meet” new bloggers. I love not only finding new blogs but “meeting” people who can become like friends. You know what I mean, right? It’s inspiring to me to read new posts and observe how others write and organize their blogs. I thought I would share a few new blogs that I’m following lately. Hopefully, you will too! Secretly, I’d love to meet them in real life!


Our Pretty Little Girls is such a sweet blog. I am just adoring all that Beth does on her blog and in her life. From family to recipes to goals and link-ups, I am just smitten with this darling lady and her family. Hop over and check out her sweetness!



I “met” Crystal through a post link-up with The Blended Blog. I had to read her post because…well c’mon we’re from Texas. Lone Star State people have a thing, y’all! Crystal is a wife and mommy and writes about lots of topics. I appreciate her heart for the Lord. She is the one who has the Joy link-up each month. Her blog is Hall Around Texas. Please stop by and visit her blog.



I also found Beautifully Candid because she left a sweet comment on a post. This led me to venture to her blog and I immediately became a follower. She is lifestyle blogger and covers a variety of topics. Sierra is married and has two children. A beautiful family! I wanted to post a picture of her but ran out of time to write and as permission. Hop over and see her lovely self.


 I recently became a follower of Kellyann who blogs at This Blonde’s Shopping Bag. She is also participating in the Common Threads Challenge so I get to interact with her through the challenge too. She is a sweetheart! I already love her style and want to be her friend! We have a few things in common like exercise and healthy eating. Oh, and clothes…we love clothes. Hope you’ll stop by and visit this little darling from Florida.

Chic over 50. Who doesn’t want to be that? This blog is aptly named and I’m super inspired by this gorgeous lady and her style. I want to be her when I grow up and become 50. Haha, right?! I’m already there and she is reminding me to embrace it!

Chic Over 50 - Be Confident. Be Beautiful.

That’s a wrap on my top five Friday favorites. Hope this helps you to find some new blogs and maybe even some new friends.

Hope you have a beautiful weekend!
