There’s a good chance your mom is on Facebook, Twitter or most definitely Pinterest. My Granny recently purchased an iPad because she was tired of missing out on all the family instagrams (of course if she comments on someone pics more than others we call her out on it). Our moms and grandmothers are web savvy now and they love a good blog just as much as we do. I’ve gathered a few that may be worth sharing to a mom you know:
Sometimes a girl just needs to bake. Sally’s Baking Addition provides a creative catalog of “I think even I can do this” recipes. She posted a S’mores Brownie Pie this week, that sounds evil and fabulous.
Although this family is made up of young children I think a mom of any age and stage of her motherhood would appreciate Rage Against the Minivan. Kristen is real, honest and funny – she’s not trying to be perfect which is what makes her so relatable.
If you know a mom who is celebrity obsessed and appreciates affordable style Frugal Fashionista is for her. Each day a celebrity look is featured with links to similar items at way more accessible prices. And don’t worry, it’s not just the 20 something looks – 40+ starlets are featured as well.
Garden Rant is the blog for all those green thumbs out there (or so I hear considering my garden is where plants come to die). This is the place for anyone who talks about their tomatoes with the same admiration as their children.
Recently discovering Little Green Notebook I have become hooked to Jenny’s impeccable taste and best of all – her fabulous DIY projects. Her creations look like they were purchased from a high end home boutique yet were simply made (at least she makes it look that they were).
While pregnant I stumbled across Pregnant Chicken and felt so thankful that I did. First and foremost Amy is funny – she puts a spin on pregnancy and that first year of baby like no other. This is a must read for any expecting mothers out there (be sure to visit the Best Of section).
Small Fry is a collaboration of 3 mother’s who wanted to create a lifestyle blog for children. This is not just about the kids though – from great reads to learning about other mothers Small Fry has a little bit of everything. A great link to send along to your friend or daughter who has young children.
Last but certainly not least is Grandma’s Briefs. Lisa gives an honest account of motherhood and grandmother-hood. She writes often about the difficulty of living far from her grandchildren and ways to remain present in their lives. There are also enjoyable musings and a recipe from time to time – we wouldn’t expect anything less from a fun grandma.
