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):

JR Frugal Mom @ The Aldi Spot is the go to site for the scoop on Aldi shopping tips, Aldi product reviews, the latest Aldi ad, and just about anything you would like to know about Aldi.   There are frequent Price Comparison posts which compare prices with Target, Walmart, and Winn Dixie.   You can see for yourself how much you can save.  Frugal Mom also has simple recipes using Aldi products, and one recipe caught my eye instantly:  Grilled Salmon with Raspberry Vinaigrette and Spinach Salad.  Sounds yummy!

Mommy of 1 and Counting is where Heather, who is a SAHM, writes about her four year old daughter, lots of frugal ideas, and giveaways.  She dearly loves her fiance and has his picture on her site along with her daughter and herself.  Heather makes her own laundry soap and bars of soap, her daughter’s clothing and hairbows,  and calls herself a “Kinda Crunchy mom.”    She’ll do just about anything so she can save pennies and uses coupons all the time.

Shawnee State University is where Hannah is majoring in photography. She shares some of her photos at Living Life: Hannah Style! as well as at her Etsy Shop where she sells her photographs.  She has some great photos with a mix of styles and effects, and it’s enjoyable looking through her work.  Hannah has giveaways on her blog as well, loves to laugh and have a good time, believes in God with all her heart, and loves life.  Oh, and she loves to center her text, all of it.  She’s a creative gal!

Now that you know about these 3 wonderful blogs, it’s time for you to join in! Add your family-friendly link below and we’ll see you back here every Friday! And don’t forget, you can get the InLinkz code to share Friendly Friday on your blog!

All three hostesses appreciate followers through GFC and Twitter, and we’ll follow you back – be sure to leave a comment with your URL and/or Twitter username. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
