So now on 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 fave...so without further ado...on to our featured link ups!

Jessica's favorite pick was from Emily at My Love For Words with her post Momopause - 7 Signs You Are Turning Into Your Mother...And How To Embrace The Change! Jessica says, "I can soo relate! I've been a mom for 19 years and I agree with every single word she wrote. Being a mom is hard work!!" I cannot disagree myself! LOL!

Ann's favorite pick was from Blair at Baby for Scale with her post Kids and Paint by Numbers Gardening. Ann says, "Blair consistently shares good information with nice photos in her posts as well. I hadn't heard of the Paint-by-Numbers Gardening kit and it sounds great!"

My favorite came from Molly at The Faithful & Frugal Fashionista with her post for Mommy Matters Monday: Maintaining Friendships. "Since becoming a SAHM, in some ways I have lost some contact from friends after leaving the job I had been at, but in other areas I have gained by not having the limitations of a job and being free now for lunch dates with old girlfriends or coworkers or thrift shopping days with my bestie from high school. I also feel like I have made new friends since getting into the blogging world, while many I may never meet, the link is still there as a mommy, wife, and woman."

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!”

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."

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.”

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 Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
