::Weekend Bloggy Reading and an Announcement::

Before I launch into the awesome links I have to share for this week's edition of Weekend Bloggy Reading, I wanted to remind you that next Wednesday is the Decorating Dilemmas party! The party will go live on Tuesday night around 10 pm (ET)
If you're new here, this is a super-fun party where bloggers can link up any Decorating Dilemma they have in or around their homes and receive feedback from other party participants. Think organizing, landscaping, new picture frames, slipcovered couches, or new coffee tables from Salvation Army! If you don't have a Dilemma to share, then you can link up with a Solution you've found.

I do ask that you come willing to participate. A party at Serenity Now is not a party unless bloggers are willing to mingle. This party has been so much fun because the friends who link up here are willing to offer thoughtful, kind, genuine feedback to their fellow bloggers. I hope you'll join us!

If you need any more incentive, anyone who links up with a (valid!) post will receive an entry to win:

Now, on to the fabulous links I have to share with you this week!

~It's Spring Spruce Up time! Kate had a fabulous post with some Curb Appeal Tips to make your home look its best.

~Wendy made a 6 Scoop T-shirt for her daughter's birthday. Precious!

~Now I want BBQ. Thanks, Tanya.

~Sarah created a Big Boy Room for her Bub. Makes me want a boy to decorate for!

~Tausha shared some great tips and some fab Before and After shots in a Spray Painting 101 post.

~Drab to Fab Storage Crate.

~A "duh" moment for those of us who need to organize our DVDs. Thanks, Sarah!

Any special plans for this weekend?

I need to go shopping for the uber fancy frou frou wedding I'm going to next month so I don't look like a homely cousin from Iowa. I hope to at least attain the status of "stylishly adorable cousin on a budget from Virginia." Natalie has been invited to a gymnastics birthday party on Saturday afternoon...this could go one of two ways. She might fall in love with flipping around on the mat and want to take lessons, or she'll get mad because the instructor won't let her attempt a standing back tuck off of the balance beam. Either way, I hope she channels some Mary Lou Retton.

{Have a wonderful weekend, my wonderful readers!}

  1. That ice cream scoop tshirt is adorable! Have fun at the birthday party...a gymnastics party sounds like a ton of fun!

  2. "Stylishly adorable on a budget." You will ROCK that look, girl.

    I just told my friend Kristi, who has a new blog, that she should join your party next week. Your parties are always so much fun. I appreciate the way you stand pat on good etiquette for parties. It really ISN'T a party without mingling!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

  3. HEY! I'm an Iowan! If you're going to insult a Midwestern state, go for Nebraska or Missouri (there's reason why people call it Misery). :)


  4. that ice cream T is sooooooo darling!

  5. What a fun shirt - and what fun reading! Thanks

  6. thanks for sharing the ice cream shirt-3 of my girls have June bdays and we're celebrating next Sunday-this is perfect!!! My middle daughter wanted me to make her a skirt but I know this week is going to be crazy and she will be so happy with this!!!

  7. I hope that you find something super cute for the wedding that you get to attend. I love weddings!

    Great links this week! I have two plastic chairs with a matching side table (circa 1993) that could use a spray paint refresher. I think I'll try it!


I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
