::Weekend Bloggy Reading::

Happy Friday, y'all! Hope you enjoy this week's reading...leave me some comment love and let me know which ones are your fave!

Before I launch into this week's list of amazing links, I wanted to remind you that the next Show Me the Progress party is coming up next Wednesday, July 28.
If you're new to the blog, this party is all about celebrating the little steps we're all making on projects, whether it's an update to a Decorating Dilemma, a Before and After Makeover, a personal weight loss story, you get the picture.

The beauty of the party is that you don't have to have a completed project! We want to see the progress you're making so we can encourage you and give you helpful feedback. The last party, which you can view here, was lots of fun! If nothing else, share your ideas and plans with your readers to not only keep yourself accountable with your goals, but also to receive advice and encouragement.

On to the linky love!

~Kelli made my dreams come true with her Chocolate Covered Surprise Cookies.

~Darcy shared her Biggest Blogging Pet Peeves. Are you an "offender?" {wink} You'll find some excellent blogging tips!

~J'adore Amanda's Luggage Tag Tutorial. TrĂ©s cute!

~I was very impressed with Stephanie Lynn's DIY Party Deck. Great space for entertaining!

~Kimmie made some cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Icing. Yuuuum.

~Paula gave us an update on the Walnut Avenue Home.

~T will die of sheer bliss if I give Jenni's Peanut Butter Big Cups a try.

~Beth turned a junky garage potting bench into an Updated Outdoor Buffet.

~Heather's Patio Makeover inspired me and also made me want a pool.
{What's on your agenda this weekend?}

I finished up the book I talked about on Wednesday and now I'm working on the sequel! Girls Night Out excited! We also have an Addition that has exploded with My Little Ponies and Polly Pockets and needs some tlc. Last, but not least, I promised my mom that I'd feed her evil, sadistic cat, Mr. Darcy, while she's in Texas. I guess I must risk losing an arm or leg to fulfill my obligation. Hope I make it back to blog on Monday.

Have a fabulous, weekend!
