Things to Read - DC-Based Blogs that I'm Thankful For

october5 (92 of 114)

Last year for Thanksgiving I posted on some of my favorite mom blogs. One year later and that list still contains my daily reads. So this year I thought I'd post on my favorite local blogs. Here goes:

1. KidFriendly DC - the absolutely best resource for things to do in DC with kids. I especially love the Friday lists, full of so many great activities that it often necessitates a change in plans. Plus I love reading the funny headlines and well-written reviews.

2. Go Out and Play! - very similar to Kidfriendly DC, except that Melissa, the blog's author, tends to concentrate on events in the Northern Virginia/Arlington area. She's especially good at finding nature center classes and storytimes, a must read.

3. Not-So-SAHM - This relatively-new blog has tons of great crafts and places to go. Plus the writing is funny. I love that the author always "keeps it real" by demonstrating how messy (and fun) kids can be, especially when it comes to crafts.

4. But I Do Have a Law Degree - I don't actually read many blogs, I usually just skim them and look at the pictures. But I do read this blog. As a former big-firm lawyer turned stay-at-home mom I can relate to Shannon's stories about leaving a high-pressure work environment. But most of all I love her funny sketches of daily life.

5. Snoburbia - Funny. Snarky. And true.

6. The Natural Capital - A great resource for days spent outside. I especially love the posts on "things to look for" by month, which make "nature exploring" all the more fun.

7. The Meanest Momma - Playground reviews. Menu plans. Crossfit. Lost of fun places to go with kids. And info about daily life.

8. This is Marzipan - Tons of creative inspiration, making me wish I knew how to sew. Plus beautiful pictures. Lots of beautiful pictures.



  1. Wow. I can't tell you how honored - and thankful - I am for the props from one of MY favorite blogs. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your beautiful family!
