Stealing Sevens On a Saturday

Julie at Dutch Being Me had this great idea last week to link up to seven posts she has read during the week (she even put one of mine in there!) She calls it Saturday Sevens, and I love it so much that I am now stealing it....I mean....borrowing it?.....Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?.....It's not stealing if you don't get caught? Pick whichever of those explanations that makes you feel the best about me, and then go tell Julie what a fabulous idea she had!

Here are some of my blogging friends.  Go visit them and let them know that I sent you! (I'm just full of theft and bossiness today, aren't I?)

1. One Cluttered Brain
Photobucket She has some thoughts on super powers. In fact she even invented one that I think sounds pretty promising.  I'm sure one of my talented, intelligent readers could figure out how to make the Power of Snap a reality, so just let me know when you've got that radioactive spider ready to go, 'k?

2. The Mother Load
I have written about it. I've tweeted about it. I've discussed it until my husband has wanted to cover his ears and run away. The Oil Spill.  Seriously people, it is ridiculous! Erin has got some practical advice for you and a great idea for a new hair style - we all need a little change every once in a while, why not look cute for a good cause? We love the Gulf Coast and we just want to see it cleaned up.  No matter what it takes.

3.Aging Mommy
Aging Mommy She has got a soundtrack for the first three years of her life as a mother. Very creative and a great chance to get to know more about her. (and a great opportunity for me to sing a little Hello Goodbye, which is always fun)

4. Nicole Wick - I've Been Robbed
This was such a convicting post for me this week. Is there something that is robbing your family from a piece of you? For me, it is stress.  When I get stressed, I shut down and don't want to interact with anyone.  I don't want to play games or act out silly stories with puppets. I realize that I need to learn how to set that stress aside and give my full self to my daughter. This week, I'm committed to not letting my stress, my problems and issues, rob her of time - REAL FUN TIME - with her mom.

5. Who Says 8 Is Enough?
Debi's family just returned from a fabulous cross-country trip! They had great experiences like visiting the Grand Canyon, meeting up with old friends and family, and all the fun that can fit inside a van full of kids.....but the most exciting thing happened when they went to Colorado Wyoming Colorado.  Is it wrong that I laughed slightly at Debi's terror?

6. Adventures in Extreme Parenthood
Have you ever had a possible health issue hit you and you find yourself too scared to make that appointment? Sometimes it takes a lot of courage to make that call (and then a some more courage to show up!) Sunday gathered together that courage and she has got an appointment coming up this week.  Go show her some love and then say some prayers for her this week!

7. Half-Past Kissin' Time
Half-Past Kissin' Time Mrs.4444 has a video....really, I can't explain it. You just have to go watch it for yourself. You won't be sorry!

What blog posts have you read or written this week that made you think or kept you laughing? Share them with me so I can find some new blogging friends too.....and I promise that is the last thing I will order you to do today!  Happy Saturday!
