Who Wants to Share her Favorite Blogs

Kidding Kidding ... but this blog is about finding a happy balance right!?!

I started this blog because I love the healthy living blogging community - there are some amazing blogs out there that are so interesting and inspiring and some that I love because the blogger seems so real!

I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite blogs, because they are the reason I decided to take the plunge and start on my own blogging adventure. You can click on their name to take you to their fabulous blogs!
  •  Julie at PBFingers
    • I have been following Julie's blog for a few years now and I just LOVE it! She blogs twice a day and basically just shares about her life - but she writes in such a way that draws you in and is also very real and approachable. I kind of think of her as a celebrity ... I tweeted at her once and I got SO excited when she tweeted back at me (dork!). 
  • Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean
    • Lindsay is a Registered Dietitian, but she went back to school after working for a few years and realizing she was not in the right field. I will say that she was one of the biggest inspiration for me to take the leap and go back to school - seeing that she did it and was successful was really helpful! She is currently expecting her first baby! Check her blog out on Mondays when she does "Bean Bytes" - sharing interesting articles from all over the internet. 
  •  Kath at Kath Eats Real Food
    • Kath is another Registered Dietitian who went back to school and she shares some good recipes and shares about the daily musings of her life. Also, her husband owns a Great Harvest Bread Company, which is one of my favorite small business food chains!
  •  Nicole at Pumps & Iron
    • First - most creative name ever! Nicole is goofy and can make me laugh out loud. She shares some great workouts that you can do at home or in the park with very little equipment!
  •  Shay at Mix and Match Family (family blog) and Mix and Match Mama (foodie/recipe blog)
    • I am embarrassed to say that I found Shay's blog because of the the TV show The Bachelor! Her brother was Sean Lowe (who was the bachelor who "found love" with Catherine), and I think I googled him (sorry B =) and I ran a cross her blog and got hooked. On her family blog she talks about how to balance family life and gives some great tips on her weekly posts called "50 Shades of Shay." On her foodie blog she shares really easy recipes that make feeding a family and cooking on weeknights easier. 
  • Meredith at The Mitten Wife
    • Meredith is actually a good friend here in Ann Arbor. It is a long story, but I actually found her blog before I moved here and reached out ... and now we are friends! Her blog touches on many different aspects of her life - expected new baby! photography, home improvements, and the life of a doctor (resident) wife. Her husband is in his 3rd year of ENT residency.
I could go on because there are some wonderful blogs out there - but these are the ones I read the most often and have hooked me!  (and I do not want to list too many and have you think all I do is read blogs ...)

Let me know what you think and what other blogs do you read??
