Thankful Thursday

I wanted to do something that I haven't done in a while (okay, I've only done it once), and give a nod to some of the blogs that I'm thankful for.  One of my coworkers used to laugh at the way I read blogs.  I would go to my homepage, where I had linked all of my favorite blogs, and click one-by-one to see if any of them had posted something new.  One day when he was laughing, I asked him he had a better idea.  He said he did and that it would in fact "change my life!"

I admit I was still skeptical but if it was that revolutionary, I had to give it a try.  He proceeded to introduce me to Google Reader and I've been a believer ever since.  It did change my life, at least in the computer realm.  I've saved a lot of time and it's so much easier to organize and save posts that I want to bookmark.  It's been wonderful for my recipe addiction!

All that to say, these are some blogs that I almost always 'read'.  I use that term loosely because I'm more of a look-at-the-pictures kind of girl but I do occasionally 'read' the content (:

1)  Sandra Bludau Photography - Oh my word, this gal has some serious talent!  Her newly launched blog is packed with drool-worthy photos.  Too bad she lives in San Antonio because I sure would love to have her photograph my little family.  She is amazing and she's apparently just getting started!

2)  What Katie Ate - In keeping with the photography idea, this blogger is incredibly talented as well.  Not only does she have an amazing eye, she's a chef to boot!  I find myself just getting lost in her pictures, they are that amazing.  She's won all kinds of awards and it's easy to see why.  She's an Aussie so she probably has an awesome accent on top of all her other greatness.  Perhaps I have a wee crush on her (:

3)  Peas and Thank You - I just stumbled on this blog a couple of weeks ago when a fellow blogger, Carly, linked to her recent cookbook.  I was hooked from the first post I read.  She's a young, fairly new mother who loves to cook healthy meals for her family.  Sound familiar?  I felt like we were instant friends (:  I seriously bookmarked 9 out of the first 10 recipes I read from her site.  Love.

All of these sites provide so much inspiration for me.  I get lots of great ideas from all of them, I just utilize some of the inspiration more than others!  What about you, what blogs are you thankful for or which ones inspire you?  Feel free to link up to Black Tag Diaries.


  1. I love Google Reader. I can't imagine reading blogs any other way now! oh and I'm in San Antonio. I'll have to check that site out!

  3. i should probably jump on the google reader band wagon... i'm a little behind. looking forward to checking out these blogs:)

  4. I need to head over and read all of those. I love Thankful Thursdays
