I loved how Lisa added a little bio for every blog on her blogroll. I realized how I like each blog for its individual charm, and figured I’d let you know what you’re getting into before you go all clickity-click on my favorites. I read a LOT of blogs, and I love so many of you out there. Since a long blogroll gets a little daunting, I’ve been trying to just keep my “most-read” blogs on here.

The Almost RunnerSteph is so good at making me chuckle with her never-ending sarcasm and ability to laugh at herself. I’m a pretty big fan of her adventures in attempting to tackle a dedicated running schedule and newlywed life.

And sometimes I help her out with some shin splint stretches via Skype.

Cupcake Dynamite – Jamie, my neighbor and fellow-Jersey girl (we played on the same field hockey field at our respective rival high schools!), has a joint blog with her best friend who lives in New York. And both of their friends are named Danny. I could say the best part of their blog is my cameo appearances, but I won’t.

Fitting It All In – You may notice a trend here… I tend to love bloggers with whom I have a lot in common. Clare is no exception to this rule. I love her style, her balanced, well-rounded writing, and her pretty face. šŸ™‚

she’s my “vbbff.”

Haughty by Nature – THIS GIRL will crack you up when you read all about her champagne tastes on a Natty Ice budget, her online dating catastrophes, and life right near my parents in N.C.Ā  šŸ˜‰ She’s even blogged about some crazy things I’ve been though. Ensley = haughty and fabulous.

Hungry Runner Girl – Janae’s blog is one my favorites of all the running blogs I follow. She never ceases to entertain me with her goofball pictures, her lack of shame, and her ability to get through a serious running injury. She was awesome enough to provide me with her first marathon training schedule, which I followed for my first full marathon training!

How Sweet It Is – Jessica’s blog is not only a haven of sweet treat recipes.. she just makes them look SO GOSHDARN GOOD. Just try and visit her blog without drooling all over your keyboard. It’s impossible. Plus, her writing will make you giggle. Great recipes, pretty food, AND laughs? Win-win!

I’m an Oakie – I’ve always loved Lisa’s blog because she is so admirably honest. Go check her out.

Julie Go Lean – Homegirl will crack you up. Go see her for a healthy dose of New Yawk single girl life. With lots of workouts and oatmeal. šŸ˜‰

Katy Widrick – Katy’s blog has got to be the most well-rounded one I’ve ever stumbled upon. She has helpful blogging tips, interesting topics, and I’m never bored checking out her little space of the Internet.

The Lunchbox Diaries – Colleen is a close friend I’ve made through the blogging world. My day wouldn’t be complete without our g-chat sessions, and we had a pretty fantastic weekend together when she came to visit for WineFest. Go read about her adventures as a newlwedy grad student.. you’ll feel right at home reading her blog. šŸ™‚

Once Upon a (L)ime – I mean, really… could there be a blog name out there that’s more right up my alley? I love Sarah. I love her blog. She makes me laugh, and that automatically puts her blog right at the top of my reader. We’re planning our next marathon together. Booze may or may not make an appearance (that’s a funny joke).

Peanut Butter Fingers – Julie’s blog was the first to introduce me to the healthy living blog world. She chronicles her eats, workouts, homedog Sadie, and newlywed life from sunny Florida. Chloe and I want to run a doggy race with her and Sadie. I hope you two are ready.

Running off the Reeses – Cely is probably the funniest blogger on the face of the earth. Her blog captured my heart the first time I stumbled upon it, and I can’t get enough of her hysterical antics.

SnackFace– Kailey is my long lost twin. No, but really. We’re two blondes who know good music, how to correct other people’s grammar, and have no shame of our big feet.

Yes, I Want Cake – Katie has an adorable brand new baby girl and she’s an awesome photographer of all the delicious things she bakes. Her Better Than Boxed brownie project stole my heart.
