::Weekend Bloggy Reading:: Link Up!

Welcome to Weekend Bloggy Reading. I hope you'll link up your best post of the week today, and maybe leave me some comment love!

All kinds of posts are welcome--recipes, crafts, funny stories, home decor, etc.; but please do not link to Etsy shops, businesses, items for sale, etc. (I have a Sponsors section, if you'd like to Advertise with me.)

Here are a few of my faves from this week:

sources listed below

~Becky shared some excellent ways to Involve Your Kids in Decluttering.

~Kate's double post with Cristin covered the important topic of Organizing Kids' Spaces. Great tips!

~The SITS Girls re-ran a fabulous post from Kat noting 10 Blogging Pitfalls You Should Avoid.

~Martha Stewart's site had a neat Vegetable Gardening Guide linked up on Twitter this week.

~Melissa has a Wall 'O Mirrors.

~And me?
I posted the details about the upcoming I {Heart} My Crafty Cutter linky party (starts Tuesday morning!) can join in to win a Starbucks gift card and a custom coffee cozie! I also shared the progress on Styling My Girls' Bunk Beds and Tuesday brought Session #2 in my Commenting 101 blogging series: 8 Reasons to Comment on My Blog (a guest post from Heather at Dollar Store Crafts). I told you about how my Priceless afternoon turned into a Mastercard commercial, and decided it was time to be Bringing a Little Spring Inside.

Time to link up your best post of the week (please take the time to include a link-back or my party button and visit some of the other participants!)

Here's the button code if you'd prefer to use that rather than a link-back:

Party is open until 10 pm (ET) on Sunday night.

Remember that blog parties work best when bloggers participate, so if you have a chance to visit a few of the other links, you might find a new friend or two!

Taking Michaela Byrd to a kids' art activity this morning with some friends while Natalie is in preschool. It's so nice to do special stuff with her when the big sis is not around! I get to head out to a "Relax Night" with some MOPS friends tonight. Our Mentor Moms are putting it on for those of us on the leadership team--complete with facials, mani pedis, the works. I am looking forward to this more than chocolate cake. And that's saying something.

{What are you up to this weekend?}

Back tomorrow with some highlights from Weekend Bloggy Reading!

  10. Hey girl! I'm sitting in the waiting room at Duke while Preston--here for Preston's annual visit with the cardiologist. And they have free internet access! So I was able to get my post up AND link up with you. Let me tell you, waiting rooms are very different when your kids are bigger. Preston brings along his Kindle; I bring my computer. VERY different from when he was the age of your girls!

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! :)
