And The Award Goes To… (Part 2)

As part of the “Over the Top” Blog Award that Tonya honored me with, I am passing the award on to six blogs that I feel are “Over the Top”.  I posted the first three yesterday, so it’s time now to reveal the next three.

And frankly this was a hard one, because there are so many wonderful blogs out there. But here are three more that I repeatedly come back to to learn, to get refreshed, and to just make my life at home easier. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do:

money-saving-mom-blogFirst goes to work-at-home, homeschooling mom (of 2) Crystal Paine over at Money Saving Mom. Crystal generously shares her insights and tips on saving money at home, grocery deals, how to coupon shop, you name it.

She also shares insights into homeschooling, working-from-home, and my favorite – her baking/freezer cooking days. If you are at all interested in saving money, Crystal’s blog is a great one to follow.

nancy-blogNext up is another fellow work-at-home, homeschooling mom (to 3), Nancy Carter at Lesson from the Farm.

You may have read Nancy column in The Homeschool Minute, but her blog shows her heart even more. She blogs about homeschooling her 3 boys, life on their farm, and God’s blessings through her battle with fibromyalgia. 

For a little dose of country, a lot of inspiration as a mom, a dose of perspective when you are feeling down or tired, I recommend heading over to Nancy’s blog.

Lori-Seaborg-blogAnd lastly, but definitely not least, is yet another work-at-home, homeschooling mom (to 4), Lori Seaborg at Just Pure

Lori shares her beautiful photography, reflections, little bits of her life, and other thoughts on striving to mediate on those things that are Just, Pure, and Lovely.

I can sit and and get absorbed in the pictures and thoughts on Lori’s blog, losing track of time, and come away feeling soft, and centered, thinking about the beautiful parts of life that sometimes I overlook in my busy-ness. And for that I thank you Lori!

Also, Lori’s other blog is a great place to find free homeschooling resources, if you are on a tight homeschooling budget.

So, that’s my 6 picks for the “Over the Top” blog award. I now pass it on to these ladies, and can’t wait to see who they pick.



Crystal, Nancy, and Lori: If you are up to it, please share your answers to the 35 questions on your blog and pass the award on to 6  blogs you feel are “Over the Top”.  Here’s the example of how Tonya did it, and here’s my post of my answers to the questions.
