I have had some free time on my hands the past two days, while the little one naps, so what have I been doing? Finding new blogs to read. Confession: I am not a huge reader of other blogs. Yes, I know how horrible that is. I have a few that I follow and read all the time but other than that I'm just content to post on here and go about my day.
I am about to change that! Every week I will be posting (trying to post, cut me a little slack b/c I chase a 14 month old around all day) links to a few of my favorite new blogs.
I am really wanting to blog more frequently so I am trying to come up with fun ideas. Some new things to be looking for would be Meet me Monday and also my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days, and  Fill in the Blank Fridays. I will also be posting my favorite new recipes we have been/will be trying. If there is anything you guys would like to read about feel free to email me: Rachel21689@gmail.com. If anyone is ever interested in having a guest post slot let me know (via email). It's a good way to get new readers for your blog :)
Here is my first list of the three blogs I found this week that I think everyone should read:
Olivia is an amazing, strong, sweet, southern twenty-something. She is incredibly candid about her faith, love life, and battle with cancer. She paints a beautiful picture of her life no matter how flawed it may be. I feel like everyone should have the kind of courage she does. She is truly an inspiration.
I found Kelly's blog button while skimming pinterest. Right away I knew I had to read it. I mean if eat yourself skinny doesn't sound perfect I don't know what does. Kelly is a twenty-something foodie, with the cutest yorkie you will ever see. She is an extremely accomplished blogger. You know she's legit because the Doctor Oz show is asking her to be on a segment of their show. Pretty amazing. Three of the five meals I'll be cooking the next two weeks will be from her blog.
I found Lauren while reading some of Olivia's posts. She has some great reoccurring posts (which are always fun). She is married to her high school sweet heart and they recently had a precious little girl named Fern. I love that name! Her little family is precious and I really think everyone will enjoy the adventures she shares.

There are my first three. Everyone please check them out. The few sentences I have described them in can not do them justice. Keep an eye out for all my newness to come. I am excited about it, if you cant tell. First Fill in the Blank Friday coming in 2days...
