To be a total copy cat, I'm stealing -- imitation is a form of flattery, right? -- Anyways, I'm stealing MY ULTIMATE SPONSOR Jelli's idea by showcasing my favorite posts from the week, written by my wonderful sponsors!

Why is it that sponsor posts are the least read, least commented on?  Ya got me.  I'm guilty of it as well.  I mean, we all love having our sponsors, right?  And the whole point of sponsoring is gaining exposure! So, read the posts. Do it! I'll be your best friend!  And let them know I sent ya ;)
Now, onto my fav posts of the week from my lovely sponsors.

1. Blogger Book Club {by Amy at Sweet Home Santa Barbara}
I'm so so so excited to be a part of my first book club! And the fact that it is with Amy and a bunch of bloggers I've never met is even more fun.  Also, I will be encountering my FIRST group Skype and my first stranger-skype all at once.  Fun times ahead.  Want to join in?

2. I've been a terrible blogger but I have an idea! {by Morgan at Momma to Binks & Bubble}
It seems like so many of my favorite bloggers have been MIA lately (myself included last month). So when Morgan came back, I was so happy :)  I love her new idea to  start a link up where she features her favorite hand-made shops, and I was overly delighted that someone linked up Missionary Kerrie's as a fav!! Make my day, why don't ya?

3. Blog Tips No. 1 {by Britt at The Magnolia Pair}
Ok, so technically this post is from last week, but it's my blog and I do what I want (toddler tantrum over).  This is an EXCELLENT article on blogging. I took a lot away from it and it actually encouraged me to simplify my blog space. I'm so happy I did. Does anyone else just stare at their blog for way too long to be normal?  no? just me??
