Leah's Five Friday Fav's
Posted By: Leah
I started this post last week, just because there were sooo many amazing posts that you all may or may not have seen. I saw five more this week that I had to share! They are from blogs of all sizes and I got super happy reading these posts... and wanted you to know about them too! Nope, none are sponsored. Just genuinely good posts and I think you will like them :)
5. Goodbye Yellowbrick Road's "...in the summertime; a picnic for one."
Dottie is SUCH an effortlessly cool girl. And on Wednesday evening she packed herself only the most adorable dinner and went on a picnic by herself. She brought strawberry mojitos and sat alone in her town's square and listened to a band play bob marley covers. Her photography and writing are exquisite and I felt like I was right there next to her, having my own picnic of one.
4. Pamplemousse1983's "Thursday's Things: Funny HaHa Edition"
3. The Poop Whisperer's "Chocolate Delight...by Hailey"
The Diamond. They serve this exact dessert and also call it Chocolate Delight. I LOVE it!!! I wanted banana pudding one day when I was there, but the server said they were out and promised I'd love this. OMG HECK YES I DID! This is one of my top favorite desserts OF ALL TIME! I order it every time I'm there. I just figured the recipe was a magical secret that never could be duplicated. But my girl Hailey spilled the secret... and it looks e.a.s.y. oooh dangerous knowledge :)
2. restlessRISA's "Clothespin Doll"
1. Hundreds of Hundreds' "Grand"
Jill is a blogger living in Portland and received a large inheritance after her mother's death a couple of years ago. Jill wanted to use the funds to make a difference. Her blog is about the experiences she has had handing out $100 bills to strangers. I truly get chills reading this blog, Jill is amazing and meets the most deserving people. In October 2010, she gave a $100 bill to a stranger every single day of that month. Every time Jill surprises a stranger with $$, she says she receives even more back. She looks them in the eye and truly feels she is helping them with their own burden. Jill is amazing; a wonderful writer, and I am sooo happy to have learned about her amazing giving project via The Paper Mama's blog. It's not even a project, this is Jill's life. It is a truly wonderful thing she is doing and I'm so happy she shares it through her blog. A true example of 'paying it forward.'
