Now to feature some of our amazing link-ups from last week! We had some yummy recipes, great tips and tricks, DIY, and some amazingly, beautiful and touching stories. I know I certainly had a hard time picking my without further ado...on to our featured link ups!

Jessica's favorite pick was from LadyBlogger about the night they spent in a Haunted Hotel...according to Jessica, "I am a stickler for ghost stories and old haunts. I also met a few "ghosts" in my lifetime. LOL!" Thank you LadyBlogger for sharing such a wonderful tale with us all, I can't wait to see what else you have in store for us! Love it! Now I have to say that it was an extremely difficult choice because we had some really great links last week, but all in all my favorite would have to come from Vicki over at Laugh Lines with her story A Wildly Premature Letter to my Granddaughter! Vicki's wit always elicits a chuckle and I really found it very much very fitting even when thinking about my own daughter dating...especially with two big brothers and a surrogate big brother, too...oh I shudder to think! LOL! Thank you Vicki for linking up and keep them coming!

Now for our featured "Marvelous Meanderers", grab the "I was featured at This Momma's Meandering Mondays" button and display it proudly! I can't wait to see what wonderful things come to us for This Momma's Meandering Mondays # 7!

Okay, are you ready to party?!? Well then, without further ado...I would like to welcome back my amazing co-host's for August!

~Jessica Dy @ The Wondering Brain – “I'm a Gen Xer and work full time as a Special Projects Person for a university. I am also a full time mommy to 2 boys, ages 19 and 2. To top it off, I am also a full time Doctoral Learner for the University of Phoenix. I started writing this blog in January 2013 because I was suffering from writer's block in school. I like challenging myself in whatever I do. I figured if I held myself accountable for writing, why not display all my crazy thoughts out to the public? Thus, The Wondering Brain was born!”

Ann Harrison @ Ann Again and Again – “I am the Owner and Writer of Ann Again... and again. I live in Portland, OR and have been blogging since 2008 with the prompting of my lovely mother who thought the silly stories of our family life should be shared with those who were ready for a good laugh. My blog title came from the fact that I don't seem to share all the information I intend with one phone call, so you'll probably receive a second call from me stating "It's Ann, again.”

Brittnei Washington @ Get Fit, Healthy Life - “Brittnei is a bubbly wife to Harroll Washington and mom Harroll, Jr. who loves homemaking, beauty, decor, crafts, football and healthy living. She and her husband Harroll have a home business helping people virtually and in person to lose weight and live healthier lifestyles. They sell a line of all natural products to help people tackle weight loss and obesity-related health conditions as well as a natural serum to help with wrinkles and stretch marks. If you are interested in learning about these products, you can go to her website by clicking here."

Feel free to "meander" by some fellow bloggers and find a new recipe to make for the family, a helpful blogging tip, a funny story to read, and best of all a new friend to make! There are really only a few rules that I would ask you to follow, pretty simple ones really... 1. Link up your favorite story, recipe, photo, or helpful tip; please keep it family friendly. 2. Please follow our Host and Co-host's 3. Please find some new friends to follow, remember the more you follow the more followers you will have. 4.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!) Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story: I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair , my hair style was a nightmare. My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogram

My Questions Answered By Chef Pati Jinich - Video

Rob and I have been focusing on finding foods and spices that will help us take some weight off.  I've been slightly obsessed with staying on my exercise track (on week 8 now :->) and hope to get rid of this jiggly belly that has become wa-a-a-ay too comfortable on my body.  The older you get the harder it is to lose weight.  What I would say to my 40 year old self - 'See that pouch starting?  Do your crunches and planks now!  7 years from now it's going to get ugly !' I've found that spices cumin, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and turmeric are noted to increase metabolism.  ( Yes please !)  After a good workout coconut water is more beneficial in regulating your electrolytes, and lower in calories, than sports drinks.  It also contains more potassium than other drinks which is an important component in helping to build muscle which, in turn, helps you burn more calories. And my most surprising discovery - eating avocados help burn belly fat! I&#
