I have to sit and remember that it’s been 21 years since he was born – hard to believe – considering how much of it I remember. =)  He is with his (serious) girlfriend, Kendra, attending a Dierks Bentley concert!

Here are some great posts I’ve read this week – stuff to laugh at, stuff to think about, and stuff to chew on – Enjoy!

Melissa, at Schweet ‘N Savory, is a high school student and chef extraordinaire.  She posted this recipe for Coconut Caramel Frosted Cookies (think Girl Scout Samoas!) and I was really wowed!!!

If you have been blogging for awhile, I think you’ll enjoy Lisa’s take on Blog Conference Speaker Titles.  Of course, HER blog title, Stop & Smell the Chocolates has made me a loyal follower!!!

If you are curious about Twitter, or want to know more about Twitter, Heather at Girly Blog Designz has this post on how to use Twitter for blog traffic, this post for business Twittering and this post to help you understand hashtags!  I love Twitter – it’s like blogging on a 4-shot espresso – but there is so much to learn and I appreciate the tips she’s offered!  Heather will be doing my new blog design and web hosting, so SHE ROCKS!

At the Well offers posts from a group of writers.  They write to women about all aspects of life.  This post about marriage gave me a lot to chew on.  I’m still chewing on it…  This post about children (from Sarah Mae my favorite blogger) just speaks directly to me and really blessed me.

Oh – and if you’re looking for goodies to fix for father’s day – check out my post at Moms In A Blog for some hor’douvre suggestions!
