I recently was given the opportunity to write about five fabulous bloggers and I of course jumped at the chance because there is nothing I love more than my blog buddies!  I think bloggers and blog readers alike are a special breed (if I do say so myself) and these five I have formed such a great friendship with and am so glad to have them in my life.


I have known Jill for several years now-forming a mutual friendship through blogging and getting the great opportunity to finally meet her in Vegas last October.  Jill is such a kindred spirit, and her blog never ceases to inspire me on the fashion front.  She is adorable, smart and filled with great wardrobe inspiration.  But beyond that she inspires me in all apsects of life.  I look forward to our frequent skype dates and we are scheming another meet up in the fall!  Check out her blog The Good Life For Less and I'm sure you will love her as much as I do!

Maggie of Maggie Rose

Maggie is my Ethel.  (As in Lucy & Ethel-but that it is a bit of a long story).  She has amazing interior design skills and has recently been able to take the leap of quitting her day job to pursue her passion!  I am so proud of her accomplishments.  Her home has recently been featured on many major blogs such as Apartment Therapy and Desire To Inspire.  Check out Maggie's blog for loads of interior design and lifestyle inspiration and guess what-you can hire her too! 

Kellie of Nest of Posies

 

Kellie perhaps has the sweetest heart of anyone I have ever met.  I am constantly in awe of her parenting, crafting and homemaking skills.  She is mommy to three sweet kids (including twins!) and has the most adorable shop selling fun things like market bags and pillows.  If you are in need of some good ol' Southern hospitality, then head on over to Kellie's blog!


Shannon of Shannanigans


Shannon. Shannon, Shannon, Shannon.  This girl is hilarious.  She cracks me up on a daily basis with her posts on motherhood, crafting and lifestyle.  I really, really want to meet her in person because I know I will be belly laughing the whole time I am with her.  And I love laughing.  It's my fave.  Not to mention she has the cutest little boy eva, named Gabe.  Have you seen her month-by-month pics of him?  They are genius!  If you live in the Philly area be sure to check her out-she is having a blog get-together soon.  It's called "It's Always Bloggy in Philadelphia."  Enough said.


I ran across Holly's blog a few years ago while blog surfing.  Something about it pulled me in, and I was excited to learn she lived only a few hours away from me in Cali.  Of course I didn't get up the nerve to ask her to get together until about a year later. (Stalker much?) But I am so glad we did, because we hit it off right away. (Check out one of our meet-ups here) I like to think of Holly as my hipper younger sister.  She keeps me updated on what's cool with the young kids these days.  And she is getting married in a few months and I couldn't be happier for her!  So make sure to stop by her blog to see all the fun things she's been up to!

So tell me, who are your top 5 fab bloggers??
