Blog Vacation 2009

I am in charge around here and I am taking the week off.

I have been so busy with life and blogging that I haven’t been able to do one of my favorite things as much as I would like…




I am devoting this week to visiting other blogs, commenting, twittering and stumbling.

Please tell me where to go!

Leave me a comment shamelessly self promoting your own stuff and suggesting stuff you know I will like.

Plan my vacation.

I am just glad I don’t have to pack – because I would have to un-pack first…

If you would like to join my vacation, grab a button:


  1. Have a blast!!! Get some sun…I mean blog for me too.

  2. the mama bird diaries says:

    A vacation without packing or unpacking is brilliant.

  3. ?georgie? says:

    ahhhh a vacation sounds divine…a week without posting and only visiting awesome!

    If you need to unburden your soul the confessional is still open at my place

  5. Well, we’ve got tons of rain and parental angst here in Southern California.

    Brilliant idea.

    Can I ride along in your suitcase?

  6. there’s always room at my place. come on over ….i have coffee. =D

  7. jill jill bo bill says:

    You know the place. Come on by. I swear I won’t cook and make you eat it.

    This is a brilliant idea.

  8. Threeboys1mommy says:

    Oh Holly you are one blog big idea after another. Enjoy.

  9. Enjoy your blogcation! I have been there, it’s nice to get around and check out other stuff!

  10. Kalynne Pudner says:

    I’m coming, too! Even though it looks to all practical purposes that I’ve been enjoying a blog vacation for ALL of 2009 so far…

    By the way, I ADORE the new design!

  11. You can visit me! But, I don’t have anything amazing. Too little sleep, too much bad news. So, maybe you want to avoid me.

  12. It is nice and sunny here in Florida. (Hint Hint) Have a great week!

  13. WeaselMomma says:

    You already know about World of Weasels and I love when you stop by, but check out my entire blogroll for some funny reads. Especially and and heck all of them because they are that good.

  14. Angie Ledbetter says:

    Oooo, what a good idea —
    blogcation! Stop by my place for a big arse heaping bowl of virtual gumbo today if you’re in the area. πŸ™‚ Friends are contributing ingredients to the pot, so it’s gonna be yummers.

  15. Humm- well swing by and play a little while at my humble spot in the blogosphere. I’m liking the vacation idea. Maybe I’ll take next week off.

  16. Elaine A. says:

    You mean I can tell you where to go? Oh, you didn’t mean like that did you? ; ) Just teasin’ I would never do that anyway! Have fun visiting. I have a good nose pickin’ picture from Friday if you want to come see…

  17. Lee of MWOB says:

    Well I’m pretty new to your scene so not sure my lil’ stop will make the cut on your blog vacation but I would love for you to check out what’s going on at Moms without Blogs at

    We’ve had a great blogkind community project going on the last couple of days so head over if you can.

    I LOVE this blog vacation idea/button and I’m gonna do it soon like next week. That’ll gimme some time to buy some new shoes and get a pedicure.

    See ya!!


  18. Jennifer H says:

    What a great idea! Is that badge usable anytime? I might have to schedule a vacay.

  19. You can come visit anytime, but there’s a lot of freaking snow up here in New Hampshire. πŸ˜‰

  20. What a great idea. I just take a few days and then blog about how guilty I feel for not posting for a few days. You, however, just declare it, make a button and it feels like a party! I knew there was a very good reason for hanging out here! BG

  21. This is a good idea. I like it a lot and just might have to do it maybe.

  22. franticallysimple says:

    You are always welcome at my place!
    I hear from guests that our pull out couch is not excruciating painful. In fact, I’d bet nearly as comfy as your orange couch.
    Doesn’t that sound like an awesome vacation?

  23. Jenni Jiggety says:

    Oooh enjoy your vacation! If you want to stumble my post about my boobs, please feel free!

  24. The Glamorous Life says:

    You actually asked me to tell you where to go? Um, that is a bit dangerous no?


    Visit me!
    I will serve you coffee!
    If you stumble something I mine I will give you lots and lots of cocktails too. Hey maybe I should start with the cocktails then you will Stumble more. Get it? Like Drunk stumbling?

    Thank you. I will be here all week.

  25. Mrs Lemon says:

    Sure, come on over. You might have to clear off a spot on the couch to sit, but I’ll have fresh graham crackers and juice ready for you.

  26. says:

    The first in my thriller series, The Fey, was released last week – it’s at It will be serialized on the web over the course of the year. It is also available in paperback.

    If you like thrillers, it’s a wild ride.

    Of course, if you’re more into romance, relationships and intrigue, there’s Denver Cereal at

    Lot’s to choose from – the reviews have been fabulous.

  27. thank you so much for coming over to say hello, it’s fabulous to meet you

  28. MoziEsmé says:

    I am so jealous – I always wanted to go there! Don’t get lost…

  29. Feel free to come visit my handmade soap store and blog. Let me know if you want to review any of my products – I can send you a fun package!!

  30. Trannyhead says:

    You should visit MY blog. Because I’m HAWT, biotch! HAWT!

  31. Burgh Baby says:

    Enjoy your vacation! I’m sure you will encounter lots of good and bad weather, many sleepless nights, and lots of cute kids.

  32. What a great idea! I’m glad you stopped by my blog.

  33. kelliebean says:

    Yeah, I’m doing the same this week (trying to find some time to finish the book I won here!). But I sure do wish I’d had the stroke of genius to call it a blog vacation and make a fancy button for everyone, though. Flippin’ genius!

    But you can still come by The Zoo and see what we’ve been up to. It’s sunny and warm…kids are funny…I only have one request: please bring chocolate.

  34. Reluctant Housewife says:

    Hi Holly! Happy vacation. Stop on by my blog – we can hang out, do each other’s hair and watch chick flicks while eating chocolate – and I have an enormous list of lovely blogs I love to read on my left hand sidebar, all of them worth a look and they provide hours of lovely blog reading.

  35. yeah, come see me. just cuz we have history i got nothing good going on over there, just posted for the first time in two weeks….

  36. Threeundertwo says:

    You are a genius. Can I take this vacation any time? What a brilliant idea.

    I’ve had a really rough week. Bring kleenex if you’re coming to catch up on my posts.

  37. Come by for a visit, ask me some questions. I love to meet new people…

  38. Hey Hon, come by and see me! You’ve been tagged, btw, so you’ve got a new post topic when you return πŸ˜€ Got your button in my marquee (it’s about time you got one, I’ve been waiting!)

  39. Hi Holly! Thanks for stopping by earlier! πŸ™‚

  40. Lisa@verybusymomwith4 says:

  41. Jyl @ MommyGossip says:

  44. Auds at Barking Mad says:

    I am sooooo joining up just as soon as I figure out how much I’m going to need to pack for my blog vacation and what kind of shoes I’ll need!

    BTW…come and say hi! You haven’t been over in ever so long. Plus…get this, I’m having a FABULOUS and I mean FABULOUS giveaway. All you have to do to enter for a chance to win a $250 Target gift card is create a post with YOUR top 5-10 favourite posts of YOUR OWN…and enter that post in the Mr. Linky thingy over at Barking Mad and voila! That’s it! Linky love and a chance to grab a $250 Target gift card. Fun stuff.

    Yes, I am lame. I don’t know the HTML to make that a proper link. Hope you don’t hold it against me! πŸ™‚

  45. My favorite stuff is my own blog! (I may have a bit of an ego-maniac problem.)

    But you’ll probably like it too. Check it out at

  46. I like the no rules part.

    And I forgot to mention on the last post that watching poop go down the toilet can be pretty interesting in this house–really, it can. But reading your blog is slightly more interesting than that. Or more than slightly. Or an lot more than slightly.

  47. Making sure!
