Welcome to Friendly Friday!
Remember, YOU can host the link list on your blog, too! Just click "Get the code here..." at the bottom of the list. The code is different every week, so be sure to get the new code when hosting Friendly Friday on your blog.

Thanks for joining the Friendly Friday celebration hosted by Xenia at Thanks, Mail Carrier, Christi at Frugal Novice and Charla at Healthy Home Blog! We invite you to join us every Friday to make more friends in blogville, get more blog followers and follow other great blogs out there.
To join in the Friendly Friday celebration, include your link in our list, follow the hostesses in the first 3 spots and then start blog hopping! Visit other blogs on the list and comment to give them some blog love. Then take a minute to follow them through Google Friend Connect - this is a good way to keep up with other blogs, but also lets us show support to each other! Please DO NOT list your giveaways here, links must be to either your homepage or your Friday posting with your blog title. All others will be deleted.
When people comment on your blog and let you know they're a part of Friendly Friday, return the favor and follow them back. This way everyone gets traffic and followers out of participating, and it's a win-win situation. We would love for you to also grab our Friendly Friday button and post it on your blog and/or in a post - the more bloggers that find out about Friendly Friday and participate, the better!
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):
Sara at Our Breezy Beach Life lives in Florida with her husband and young daughter, who they consider the most precious gift they've ever been given. Sara works full time but is able to work two of those days from home. She shares personal stories in her blog as well as pictures of her family and recipes such as Monkey Bread and a frozen strawberry dessert that looks so yummy!
Alexandra at Ma, what's for dinner? lives in Connecticut with her husband and three young sons. Alex enjoys cooking with her children and hopes that her site and cookbooks will be a catalyst for other families to cook and bond together in the kitchen. Her cookbooks, Ma, what's for dinner?, has kid-friendly recipes and 15% of all proceeds benefit Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), the number one genetic cause of infant death.
Karen at Crazy Mama Karen has three children, ages four, three and one. She and her husband work opposite shifts, so her days are long and crazy but she wouldn't have it any other way! Karen loves to spend time with her family, bake, try new things, read and write on her blog. She enjoys writing about life stories, lessons learned, tips, crafts and product reviews and giveaways as well.
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!
