SMB Flashback | My Favorite 2010 posts from Joy


I loved seeing what Joy picked as her favorite posts of mine last year.  So I just had to respond.  Here are 8 posts from Joy that are worth re-reading.

Take a Hike…on a Scottsdale Trail. Hiking is one of the hugest blessings to living in the Phoenix area (at least we think).  Joy gives a informative (and comical) mom approach to hiking around the Valley.  You gotta follow the link just to see what Joy considers the “Scottsdale Moms Trophy”  ๐Ÿ™‚

Pregnancy + Chiropractor = Wonderful. For those who know Joy well you’d have to agree that this girl is a wealth of knowledge.  She’s constantly reading and talking to other momma’s about their experiences with _____ and ________.  Because of this she has a ton of great information to share.  This post about her experience with her chiropractor during her pregnancy with Reagan is just one little tidbit of info that you must read.

Volunteering with the Elderly.  One of the things I love about Joy is that she is constantly wanting to serve other people.  In this post she talks about her experience with taking Reagan to a local retirement home in an effort to create a culture of service in her home.

And last… but certainly not least… drum roll please…

Babysitting in Scottsdale Part 1 – How much do you pay your sitter? ,  Babysitting in Scottsdale Part II – Do you refer your babysitter to friends? AND Babysitting in Scottsdale Part III – Start a babysitting Co-Op. Alright ladies – this three part series took Joy more hours than you would want to know to put together.  Between collecting all of the research and writing the posts these posts were a beast to put together.  BUT they were well worth it!  What great information.  Please do re-read them.

Joy – Thanks for having babies around the same time and for being such a sweet blogging partner!  What a wonderful journey it’s been!
