Posts That Made Me Go BOOM! {2}

Welcome to the weekend.

If the view out your window today is anything like ours, I hope you have a snuggly blanket, a hot cup of coffee, and endless time to read, nap, and enjoy your Saturday.

By the way, the view out my window is 18 degrees and snow-filled.

Michigan gets cold this time of year.

Anyway, hopefully you have some time to read some great posts because I have a great line up for you!

You really need to start with a birth story because, well, come on.  Birth stories are so fun to read!  My wonderful friend, Emily of DesignHer Momma, gave birth to her fourth child, Paul Richard, on Friday and shared his birth story this week: Paul, you were born on a cold and windy night… Her strength and will completely amaze me. This post made me sad and totally glad at the same time that I would not ever go through this again.

Speaking of miracles, as irreverent (and AWESOME) Aunt Becky can be she never takes for granted how precious life is.  This week she reminded readers of this in a cafemom post: My Daughter Makes Me Believe in Miracles.  Nuf’ said.

Another one ’bout sweet Aunt Becky, but not written by her is this rap on Band Back Together Mimi’s Rap. For the simple facts that it is awesome, The Band is awesome, and I said so.

One of my new favorite weekly reads is Tonya’s (of Letters for Lucas) Letters For You series.  This week she had Liz (of a Belle, a Bean, and a Chicago Dog) to her blog writing a letter to “that” mom…I think we have all been around this woman, and it feels good to have Liz tell her off via this letter:  Blah, Blah, Blah.

And the BIGGEST Boom I uttered this week was after reading Ryan’s letter to H & M, H&M, I Quit You. The Woven Moments is a new blog to me, but I will definitely be back.  If for nothing else than to follow this journey and hope something great comes of it (ps, as a bonus you should read her reply to an email she got from H&M after the incident), but more likely because her writing jumps out at me as being fricking great.

BOOM!

Yup, that’s the sound of greatness.
