Good Friday, hope your weekend is starting off on a good note today! My favorite time of the week has come, time for some Friday Blog Hoppin'! There are so many wonderful blog hops out there on everyday, but Friday for me is always the biggest. If you haven't had the opportunity to try a blog hop yet, what are you waiting for? I have found so many wonderful blogs that offer some great posts, delicious recipes, fun giveaways and so much more and I have also had the opportunity to find new bloggy friends. Blog Hopping seems to be all of the rage nowadays and I am so proud to be a apart of it.
What are your plans this weekend? My hubby and I get to dress up tonight and actually go out on a date to his 20 year class reunion. I am a little nervous because I don't know anyone as we went to totally different schools, but it should be fun nonetheless. Tomorrow is his class reunion family picnic and then hubby is off to a bachelor party. Finally Sunday is for church and grocery shopping. Hope you have a wonderful weekend whatever you do as well. Now onto blog hoppin'!

Spotlight on Friendly Friday Followers!
We love your participation and want to show it! In addition to gaining followers, each week we'll select three blogs at random and will feature links and a write-up for those blogs in the content of next week's Friendly Friday post. There are so many seriously wonderful blogs out there, and this will be a great way to highlight some of those each week. Say hello to the lucky chosen 3 for this week (and feel free to stop by and give them a little extra love):
Do you ever wonder if something is just too good to be true? Amy at We're In For It... has the cutest, most well-behaved baby boy named Gage, so she isn't sure how the future live up to how wonderful life presently is. With a son this adorable and a laid-back, conversational writing style, reading Amy's blog is like having a chat with a good friend. From swim lessons to blog design (currently decked out as a birthday present to her husband!) to questions and topics all moms wonder, We're In For It... is always a fun read.
A real-life, real mom looking for ways to make ends meet, Debby at Deal-icious Debby writes about great store deals and coupons that she has found as well as products she enjoys and tips for money-saving crafts and fun projects to keep on budget. Being frugal isn't always easy, but Debby shows that through her deals, garden and cute kids that it can still be possible. Head over to start saving some money today!
A Christian mom and grandmother, Teresa at Too Many Heartbeats writes an extremely moving and informative blog about dealing with her rare and serious illness, Dysautonomia/POTS. A disease of the autonomic nervous system, Teresa's body cannot make the necessary adjustments to counteract gravity when standing up and has therefore left her 100% disabled, homebound and bedridden due to losing consciousness almost every time she stands or sits up for too long. With such an incredible story and positive outlook, Teresa's words will touch your heart through each post.
Now that you know about these 3 wonderful blogs, it's time for you to join in! Add your link below and we'll see you back here every Friday! And don't forget, you can grab the code to share the link list on your blog, too.
All three hostesses appreciate followers through Google Friend Connect AND Twitter and we'll follow you back - just leave a comment with your URL and/or Twitter username. Have a great weekend, everyone!
Simply Stacie and My Wee View. The goal of this hop is to get new Google Friend Connect Followers for your blog and be introduced to new blogs to follow!
