Fabulocity in Blogging

I feel like I've been more than fortunate with the connections that I've made via blogging. I've had tons of great opportunities, gotten lots of awesome information, expanded my recipe collection, got a glimpse into peoples lives and thoughts, and I've made friends that I know that I'll hold close for the rest of my life. I want to make a list of five fabulous bloggers, but can I narrow it down to five? I have so many that I read, so many that I'm close to, and they are all fabulous in their own amazingly awesome ways. I'm wondering if I'm going to be able to do these off the charts ladies any justice... Fabulous is fabulous, but these ladies are uniquely fabulous. Each one different, each one amazing in their own way.

First and foremost, Sarah from All Hail Queen Mommy... She may not post a hell of a lot, but when someone is willing to discuss openly what happens when you have mommy bladder combined with a dance off, with her own snarky little attitude, it makes for fun reading. This is the same chick who put me in tears with her "The Giving Tree" post, who puts her snark aside for compassion that simply amazes me.

Of course, there's Jenny, The Blogess. If you've never read her, I need to know what rock you've been hiding under so that I can break that thing up into a million pebbles. The girl's got talent. She's a lean, mean, raw and open writing machine. The humor that is incorporated into her writing makes me look at myself and tell myself that I'm not that funny. If there is a level of success that I would like to achieve through my blogging, I look at The Blogess and I wish that I could be as awesome and successful as she is.

There's one lady that I've turned to quite a bit for help, though I'm sure she never even knew it. Through the OrgJunkie site, I read Laura's organizing tips and menu planning, which made me focus on menu planning for a while, getting myself organized, and in the long run, over 2009, I saved about $2500 at the grocery store just by paying attention to what I was cooking each week. It may not sound like much, but someone who can kick my tush into some sort of gear at the grocery store sure is fabulous to me.

Stephanie at A Year of Slow Cooking has saved my ass from time to time, when I didn't know what to toss into the crockpot when the sitter is here, I've turned to her site. The dedication to using the crockpot every. single. day. for a year is awesome. Not just that, but to be able to put a book together?!?! Ridic. I wish I had that dedication!!

And last, but most certainly not least, I have to include my darling Liz from Lizzy Dear's Life. I love her dearly and I love her honesty. She posts lots of great info, but the gems that I find on her site, like her post about "Sometimes Blogging Makes Me Sick" is refreshing since she isn't scared to tell everyone how she feels about the bullshit.

I hope we all know that this isn't my "end-all, be-all" list of fabulous bloggers, but simply five that I adore. No offenses here. No hurt feelings. None of that crap.
