Blogs To Brag About: Read Them While I’m Gone

by farrah on July 19, 2013 · 6 comments

Todays is turning out to be rough. I have a billion things to do include take a water sample of our backyard ‘water feature’ — called ‘the pond’ to the garden store to find out how to stop it from turning green next week. I have to pack for 5 people, clean the house and get the laundry completed. Oh yes- I was going to get B’s hair cut today too.. whelp.

So since I am completely brain friend and physically beat (yesterday was a marathon 9 hour outing at the Rotterdam Zoo) even after 9 hours of sleep- I must press on. I realize that I am insanely late this month with my post which pimps other blogs and friends alike- but it doesn’t mean they aren’t worth a click. I have quite a variety this week, hope you enjoy and check them out!

Banana Wheels– I clicked over after reading Leigh Ann (another twin+mom–with 3 GIRLS!) talk about Amy and her blog. She is SO FUNNY. I imagine that I hang out with her in her backyard and drink Coors Light while joking about blue balls. Don’t know what I’m talking about, do you? Read this and you’ll see. I think she’s the next big thing, personally.

Selena The Places– I met Selena at the TBU conference in Rotterdam. She’s from Texas and living in London. I like her quite a bit and her blog (and Instagram feed) take you all over the places. If you’re looking for a travel blogger that takes fantastic photos and isn’t the least bit pretentious- check her out!

Best Dad I Can Be– I also met the UK’s Mark at TBU – he was our keynote speaker (what? a dad blogger as a keynote for a travel blogger conference? Yes. It was brilliant) and honestly a really cool guy. He’s very funny and additionally has a terrific book as well.

 Mikes Travel Guide– TBU sure was good to me! I met this husband and wife team as well during the conference and they’re native Louisiana expats living in the south of the Netherlands. I love the set up of their site and the photos are to die for. If you aren’t already packing your bags- their site will give you some travel inspiration!

That’s it! I hope you have a wonderful week. I’m going to test out blogging from my phone while we’re away- don’t expect anything fancy. I am not allowing myself the lap top and will probably only have wifi at the hotels, so keep expectations low. I will share what cool pics I can of France under the #Francypants tag- so follow me @Momofthreeunder while I’m away!

Farrah, you completely just made my day! Thank you so much for including me. I hope you get through that to do list quickly today and even have time for a relaxing tea or glass of wine.
xoxo
Selena

Have an awesome time! I have been reading Selena for a while now (I think we found each other through the whole London expat thing, through my personal blog!), but I will check out the others. Can’t wait to hear about your trip!
