Jenn over at Loving Every Minute tagged me with this linkamadoo deal (or whatever it's technically called). As it turns out, Jenn and I spent some time GROWING UP ON THE SAME STREET. Seriously people, how random is THAT? Anyway, she writes about life with her family in some part of...Canada - check it out!

The link details are as follows:

Not Much More Than This.
I have randomly selected 5 of you below to be tagged and I hope that you will similarly publish this post in your blog. You will have to tag 5 other bloggers and just keep adding on to the list. (Do not replace, just keep on adding! Yes we hope it will be a long list!)

Now, add/tag 5 of your friends blogs…

The last five in italics are the ones I have tagged, and if you don't have five other bloggers to tag, or don't feel like it, I won't be offended....just enjoy the opportunity to check out some new blogs!

You may have noticed that I've done some editing of the list of Places I Visit (it's over there, on the right). I've removed some of the blogs that I don't really read anymore (for one reason or another) or ones that haven't been updated in MONTHS; I've added a few new gems I've found. The newbies on my list are:
  • Loving Every Minute, which I just told you about up top.
  • Beck's Recipes, which is an online collection of recipes courtesy of Beck from Frog & Toad Are Still Friends. (My personal favourites are this salad and this french toast. Oh yum!)
  • Confessions of a Pioneer Woman - Pioneer Woman regales you with tales of life on a ranch with her husband, Marlboro Man and their four kids. Oh yeah, and she's an amazing photographer! Also, she cooks; step-by-step photo instructions for some dang tasty looking food.
  • Du Wax Loolu = Funny stories from Jess, a soon-to-be-Bride living in D.C.
  • New England Mamas - Pretty much what the title implies.
  • No Mother Earth - Broadway-loving Mom of a two-year-old and a brand-new-year-old, living in Toronto.
  • On the Upside - Hah! Not that other blogs don't, but this one really makes me laugh. Kellan lives in Texas with her husband and four kids. Hilarity ensues.
  • Tasty Palettes - If you like Indian food (or if you're feeling experimental) check out this site. Beautiful pictures of some splendid dishes!
So there you have it. Go! Go (leave a comment first, sheesh!) and check them out!

Thanks for the compliment! I will definitely check out some of the blogs you mentioned, though I don't think I'll add that linkamadoo thing. Also, I've been meaning to update my blogroll for ages... someday I'll get there.

I've been so wanting to do one of these sorts of post - point out some of the new sites that I have found that I really like - thanks so much for mentioning mine - you are very sweet!! Take care and see you soon. Kellan

You may also want to add this blog to your list -- I find it to be quite cultured and intellectually stimulating. http://mustachesofthenineteenthcentury.blogspot.com/
