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!

I'm hosting a Blessings Unlimited Open House this morning, and would like to stop by a yard sale or two on Saturday. Have zero plans for Mother's Day. T will be working. Yay.

What are you up to this weekend?

Hope to be back this weekend with some highlights from Weekend Bloggy Reading!
