I got some shout outs from some gals in the blogging community.... cuz we tight like that, yo :)
Thanks to Margo over at Along the Way and Becky over at Two Moms with a Plan (affectionately known in my world as: 2MW/AP)
Margo has an amazingly honest blog.. she shares so much about her life with her beautiful family in priceless way... and Becky and her partner, Holly are well on their way to starting a family- she is a super positive voice and, apparently, she throws some great parties... strangely enough, both Margo and Becky are from Florida!
