Happy Valentines Day 2014



Today I want to take the time to say Happy Valentines Day to all my loyal readers. You know who you are! I bet you're wondering what does a toddler know about Valentines Day? Well to be honest I know absolutely nothing about the day. What I do know is that I love you all and Valentines Day is everyday for me. 


Yesterday I was invited by my good friend Jennifer from The Deliberate Mom to take a look at her blog. I would have visited but with an invite like that I couldn't wait, I just had to go. What I read when I got there really bought a smile to my face. She shared some blogging love and introduced me to some new bloggers that I would never have met before. A few of them I already knew but it really meant a lot to me to see that someone really enjoys reading what I have to say. If you have never been to Jennifer's blog I would suggest going there. She is a former educator and the mom to 2 very beautiful girls and by the way she also home-schools. She lives in Canada (where I want to live one day) and if you're looking for activities and advice for your little one, look no further than Jennifer. 



Today I also want to share some blogging love with a few of my fellow bloggers. It's a day of love and what's better than to share the love around. Now they are in no particular order but mommy and I just love to visit their blogs and say "hi" every once in a while. We are hoping that you will say "hi" too. I have already introduced you to Jennifer so let the list begin. 

Tammy of Our Neck of the Woods: - Now if you have never visited Tammy's blog before you should leave my blog now and head over there! I have been living on the farm through Tammy's photos for quite some time and I still miss Sylvester her cat. From the time mommy opens Tammy's site I know it by heart. I may not know how to say "Our Neck of the Woods" but I do know how to say, "meow" and "kitty" and that is how her blog is known to me. Tammy shares her life with her many chickens, dog and cats with you, and includes some really delicious recipes to boot. When you visit tell her Madison said "hi". 

Tamara of Tamara Camera Blog: - Oh I think everyone knows by now that I am destined to marry Tamara's son Des. If you didn't then I'm telling you now. Tamara is such an awesome storyteller, and I don't mean fibs. Tamara draws you in like no other and she is an amazing friend as well. If you're looking for awesome photography, amazing writing and interaction, Tamara has it all. Mommy and I have really been bad when it comes to interacting with our readers. Mommy blames it on her job but I blame mommy for being lazy. She promises to do a whole lot better. From what I heard (through the grapevine), I may be meeting Des very soon. Fingers crossed. 

Janine of Janine's Confession of a Mommyholic: - Janine is the mom of two beautiful girls, Lily and Emma. I aspire to be like Lily when I grow up, sassy and fierce with a mind of my own. If you've never read the adventures of Lily you need to take a trip to Janine's blog. Mommy says that she cannot keep up with Janine, it seems like you will miss something if you ever leave her blog, so you should probably make her page your home page. :) 




Ann of Foodie in WV: - Ann is a food blogger as you may have noticed from the name of her blog. She is a mommy of two rambunctious boys. Ann loves to share her stories of her past and sometimes present in her posts and mommy can almost relate to them all. Now besides her stories, Ann makes the most delicious dishes and her photos just makes you want to gobble them up through the screen. You should definitely check out Ann's blog. 

Kristine ofMommy Kristine's Corner: - Kristine lives in the Philippines and is an educator as well. Two educators on my list, how awesome is that. She is the mom to a little girl who just turned 7. She shares her stories with us and mommy enjoys reading them. As a matter of fact we just celebrated Zay's birthday party with her virtually, just as Kristine celebrated mine. Maybe one day I can take a trip to the Philippines and pay her a visit. 

Amber of Fit Mom Boss: - Amber has been with us from day one. Amber is the mom of 2 boys. We recently did an Ask Away Friday with Amber where she asked us these amazing questions. Of course we also got to ask her a few questions of our own. Amber recently became a certified personal trainer and an online health and fitness coach. She shares some of her tips of getting into shape with you on her blog. She can certainly whip you into shape.




Brittnei of Homemaking With Style: - Brittnei is such a great person all together. She is currently pregnant with baby number 2 and has decided to start a fit pregnancy series. If you are pregnant and you're wondering if it's ok to work out, let Brittnei guide you with her series. She makes it look so easy to do as well. 

Melanie of Mommy Mentionables: - Melanie is also a mommy of two beautiful little girls. She has the most amazing do-it-yourselves that you can find. Her whimsy reading nook was absolutely beautiful and mommy is planning on taking her idea. Now who wouldn't like a reading nook, especially one so cute?

Kelly of Coastal Kel: - Kelly is a great blogger and the mom to two beautiful kids. A toddler and the other just getting into the teething stage. Kelly lives in sunny Florida where I wish I was right now and she brings to you reviews/giveaways and a little bit of everything under the Florida sun. She is down to earth and we just love her!



Now there are lots more but mommy just wanted to highlight a few of them. We want to share our love and hopefully you can share a bit of your own love to them as well. 

It's Valentines Day, what are your plans?

  15. We didn't really do anything extraordinary for Valetine's Day. Actually, we just did the norm, but today I made some new yummy meals that we've never had before. Both of my loves (my son and S.O.) enjoyed them both very much. I'm bookmarking this page and I will come back to visit the blog's you've linked up to. Then again, I might just keep this page open until I'm done with a project I'm working on so I don't forget.

    Madison - You look absolutely adorable today! You've got a great sense of style and you're rocking the hearts! I especially love your Uggs!

  16. Thank you so much for the wonderful words! I am ridiculously excited to have met your mommy and I promise to take her to a Monster Jam if the opportunity ever arises. =) You look adorable today and it was incredibly nice of you to take today to share some blogger love. =) My 2 year old decided to steal sister's candy in honor of Valentine's Day... I like what you did much better lol. I'm excited to go take a look at a few blogs I'm not familiar with and I'm excited to see a few blogs that I already love! Blogging friends are pretty awesome! =)
