Top 5 - blog candy

We all have our blogs that we just could stare at forever and wonder how anyone could ever be so creative/savvy/awesome. I also like blogs that aren't ...um... self-indulgent. Ooh, and I like blogs that I don't have to really sit and decipher what the heck they are saying. Here is a list of 5 (in no particular order, love abounds) of blogs that I find fascinating.

1. One Pretty Thing - the go to for all diy handmade goodness. How she combs the deep of the blog world and finds such great projects amazes me. You don't even have to be crafty.

2. Snippet and Ink - daily wedding inspiration. I have been married now for 10 years and I thought my wedding was pretty and wonderful. Weddings have since become this amazing world of fanciful, photo-worthy goodness down to the smallest bit of stitchery. Fascinating.

3. Mama Manifesto - relevant to me.

4. the rockstar diaries - new to me but apparently not to gazillions of others. I especially like the happy lists workin' right now.

5. elsa mora - aka elsita. I just want 1/100 of her talent. Is that too much to ask? Beautiful creations, beautiful blog.

Now that I feel like a total voyeur, I have a couple of questions. What makes you read certain blogs and what ones are you diggin'? We could all use more to add to our reader, in between loads of laundry.

I'm all over the place: From mom blogs to design to food to fashion. Oh, and I read theskinnywebsite.com, which is humiliating to write in public, since all it is is a site about celebs and their bodies and people either being really mean about them or really nice. Mostly I go for the Kelly Ripa pics, because I want to eat her with a side of honey mustard.

Oh I love Amanda's comment - hysterical!

I read mom, design and food blogs mostly. I hadn't heard of any of your favorite five - and am in love with Mama Manifesto. I'm trying out her ginger chicken recipe tomorrow night - so thank you very much for turning me on to that site! Love it!

P.S. I have the best word verification ever: WINENEST
