The Secret is in the Sauce Blogathon Tuesday!

HOWDY to all my SITStahs and to all the readers who are wondering what the heck SITS (The Secret Is In The Sauce) is. I received a few emails and a comment asking what all this SITS business is about. Well, let me just tell you about these lovely ladies...

The Secret Is In The Sauce ladies, Tiffany & Heather, have set up this oh-so-fabulous bloggy world filled with lady bloggers who love to visit blogs. They find you by you finding them. Every morning there is 'roll call' where you check in with your SITStahs. From there you can click away and log on to new blogs, leave a comment and then they will come to your blog to check you out. I've found a ton of amazing blogs this way. Here are a few of my faves...

-Betty at Keeper of the Skies Wife - She totally looks WAY too young to have two kids in college! She insanely crafty also!
-Judy at Feathers in my Nest - The blog fillllllled with amazing craft and home decor ideas!
-Anissa at Queen Bee - Who doesn't want to be the Queen Bee? She does it well. She always has a fun post...tons of cute crafts and a laugh comes with most of her posts.
-Tabitha at Fresh Mommy - Oh my goodness....she posts some AMAZINGLY gorgeous photos! She's witty and is always able to draw a tear or two with her pictures.
-Beautifully Imperfect - She's the person that I wished lived next door. Her blog is filled with everyday life. You feel connected instantly.


There are SOOO many more of my regular SITStahs that I would like to list, but I've been on this computer ALL day responding to my 3984938439 comments from being featured as SITS Friday Favorite. So many gals said such sweet things about my blog there...now THAT made for a fabulous self-esteem day! ;-) I was also featured last week as a Saucy Blog.

The exposure on the site has brought me 100s of new readers whether it be directly though SITS or through my button that my SITStahs have placed on their blog!!

So, if you're wanting to find some FABULOUS blogs and you'd like to be noticed in the blogsphere....run on over to The Secret Is In The Sauce and introduce yourself. You know you're saucy, so go do it! ;-)

---

Now for some DEALS -- I know I said I was going to get to some of your deal requests that you listed on Friday, and I am, but I am still swamped with catching up from being out of town. So, here is what I have for now...

WheresMyAngels said...

Happy Contest winning to you!! lol

My favorite blog I can't post a link to or name, since I don't have permission. It is about a family whom adopted a child with special needs (down syndrome) from the Ukraine. She had been bed ridden for her first 4 years of her life. Was said to never be able to do anything, like walk, talk or anything. They brought her home less than a year ago. She is now Thriving thru the love of her parents and new brothers and sisters. They were afraid at first to adopt her, but took that leap of faith. They saved her from an early death, and she has taught them a whole new meaning to life.

Mornin' lady!

Thepioneerwoman.com is my fave blog, ever. I love her life in the country, her gorgeous family (mainly husband), and her food is sooooo good. Love love love everything about her site.

Heather said...

Oh, I can't pick just ONE favorite blog! I have so many I visit regularly, I don't think I have a most favorite of all!

Happy Blogathon day! I was here last week but will be back again once I've made my way through the ever-expanding Mr. Linky list over at SITS today! (Yep, I'm getting nothing else productive done today, I know!)

Cheers!

Happy Blogathon Day!

My favorite blog is one of my original blogging pals. She's not even a SITS girl! I love her blog cause she can always find the silver lining in pretty much everything and she did something pretty awesome this summer and donated one of her kidney's to her dad. Here's the link to her blog:

Love your blog and I linked to you in my blog-a-thon post. This is way too much fun!! Oh and my favorite blog is MckMama's. She's not a SITS participant, but she's one amazing mama who is awaiting the birth of her baby boy who has a few heart problems. I highly recommend checking her out at www.mycharmingkids.net.

Judy @ In His Grip said...

I love your blog and actually have a link to yours on my site for the SITS blogathon.

T said...

My Fave blog is also not SITS (though I'm sure she'd fit right in!) and of course I don't have the link handy.... just click on my profile she's the Alaska gal I follow religiously.

Also, while wishing you a happy blogathon day I suppose I have to apologize for referencing you in my post as P.I.M.P. - :)

gingela5 said...

Woo hoo for SITS! Hope you have a great blogathon day! And my favorite blog is The Pioneer Woman--but I don't think she needs any help in the readership department.

This whole SITS thing is making me wish I had a blog! Sounds like so much fun!

Tabitha Blue said...

Yeah, maybe we should move closer... and our little peanuts would be BFF's too!! Oh, and I'd definitely take tons of pictures, and they'd be so cute that we'd sell the photos for lots of $$ and then move to the Bahamas!! So, when should we do this?

Susie said...

Good luck on your SITStah day:-)

Kally said...

Happy Blogathon Day! Named you in my fave five cuz you ROCK!!!

* TONYA * said...

I have a couple of favorites that I religiously check every day. Lulaville, In the Trenches, SITS and you, of course.

I heart blogs. And swaps. (Just received mine from South Africa today, and it is awesome!).

Jennie said...

this is an amazing day for SITSta bloggers.. I have way too many faves to list, but I read / follow yours everyday (is that stalkerish?)... I hope we win something!!

Yaya said...

Hey Hey Hey!
Happy Blogging! :)

SuZ said...

Happy Blogathon Day!!

imbeingheldhostage said...

My answer of the day: Noble Pig, hands down, no question. Terrific recipes with gorgeous photos, or her views on what's happening around the world, or she posts about her family and occasionally blindsides us with off the wall, roll you off your computer chair funny posts. Love her blog.

Happy Sits day to you!

Mommyhood is Thankless said...

Great post--this has been so much fun! I just found SITS today and am enjoying finally getting to sit down and do some visiting!

TMI said...

Holla from a fellow SITS-ta! I recognize some of your top 5, and will definitely check out the others! You've got me intrigued!

To answer your 'question of the day' if I had to pick just one blog I love it would be 'little momma & co.' First of all, just the way she does her posts is fun and interesting. But also, she has cute craft and cooking ideas, particularly things that children would love to help with! I'm always capitvated by her ideas and anxious for the next post!

Anonymous said...

Hi Friend! Thanks for the great deal on restaurant certificates! I thought I'd missed my chance on a deal, but this time procrastination (and being gone) got me an even better one on Christmas gifts (HAHA). You are FABULOUS!!!

Hugs,
Wen
