Good stuff in Bloggityville

Violetlady is celebrating her 105th post with a giveaway! If you haven't visited her place, jump on over. She's got some awesome music playing and it's such a nice place to visit. I am a bit biased because I'm very fond of violets -- the flowers and the hue:) -- lavendar, Rockies purple, violet -- can you tell?
"If you are a daughter, have a daughter, love a daughter" -- head over to Kat's place and check out the video she's posted. Oh my gosh, it's a message we all need to hear. And, if you haven't been to Kat's (now, who hasn't been to Kat's?) -- you'll love it. She's one of the sweetest people in Bloggityville.
If you're into menu planning, and trying to lose a few pounds (who isn't?), check out the menu plan at Kim's. Every single meal sounds so yummy -- and she's made it incredibly easy by including the WW points with each one! How great is that? Now, if I can't stay OP this week, I have no one to blame but myself. Thanks, Kim!
Finally, is anyone familiar with the site for "500 prayers for Luke?" I cannot remember how I got there, but it's a wonderful cause and would love to put a link here for this awesome little boy.

I would be happy to help you know how to post videos if you'd like. I don't have your e-mail address though. You can e-mail me. My address in on my profile.

Thanks for linking to my blog. I hope we can get the word out so that things can change for all the little girls in the world.

Wow Karen--those Dove videos carry a strong message. Thanks for linking to them and how sweet of you to link to my blog. I hope my recipes inspire you even a little bit to be able to achieve your goals.

I left a little treat for you over at my spot.

Happy Friday---

Becky said you were a hoot...she was right. I have you on my small but meaningful blogline :) Great way to tell a story!

Midlife Cycler said...

ok...I am confused. I read your story about your daughter, commented on that story, and when I went to your blog, its not there because I read the story in the bloglines..what is that about? I thought my comment was a bit off compared to the others and I thought maybe I got blogs mixed up, but I didnt right? Ugh!

Midlife Cycler said... could knit this scarf. Its soo is the pattern.

Karen, look what I found! Free books you can read on-line...not a huge selection, but handy if you can't get to the library!

Hi Karen - I haven't been here in awhile - nice to see you again!

Thanks for the links - I know and love violetlady - but will check out Kat and Kim - I'm always looking for good recipes to try!!

Isn't it fun to have your home team in the show?? When the Twins won the series in 1987, we had tickets for Game 7 - we saw them win the whole thing - very sweet!! And how fun it was to be downtown and experience the partying afterwards. Enjoy!
