::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:
~Need some help with meal planning (don't we all?) Natalie's post on Freezer Meals is full of tips!

~Kate made a lovely Planter out of a wine barrel.

~Gina's Front Porch Makeover will make you think you're in a scene from a Mary Kay Andrews novel. Love the bench!

~Y'all know how much I love white kitchens. Check out this fab Kitchen Makeover from Harbor Breeze.

~Melissa worked on the Shelf above her kitchen sink and had some fabulous results.

~And me? This week featured:

  • A recap of our NC trip and my Nannie's 100th Birthday Party with family
  • An introduction to a new blogging series: Blogging Myths
  • How I Save on Make-Up
  • A great crafty Giveaway for 2 readers from JennyandTeddy! Hope you'll send the link on to your crocheting friends if it's not a talent you possess. (Link to this party with a link back or my party button within your post and you'll get an automatic entry in the Giveaway!)
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!

Not much going on this weekend until Sunday. My friend Christy and I are planning the first summer Moms' Night Out event for our MOPS group. Our local Charming Charlie is hosting an "after hours" social for us with refreshments. We get to shop, play with sparkly jewelry, and get 20% off of their already ridiculously affordable prices. Then we'll head down the sidewalk for dessert at the nearest restaurant. I need this night out!

What are you up to this weekend?

I'll be back tomorrow with some great deals from my sponsors and highlights from Weekend Bloggy Reading!

That porch looks so cozy! I just finished my first MKA book and it was so good...I think I'm heading to the library today to get another. I linked up my post from today with a confession about OCD and an awesome sewing tip:) Have a great weekend Amanda!

Hi Amanda,

So many bright beautiful pics up there and lots of projects I'm about to go look through.

This weekend let's see, probably a farmers market or 2, an art fest, engagement party and then lunch with friends. All fun.

Hope you are well!

Hi, I am a new blogger and just found this link party. I am linking up a post that has links of help for new bloggers. This kind of started with a link to your Commenting 101 series. Thought it would be helpful to have all this info in one place. Hope that is OK. By the way, I though your series was excellent and am looking forward to Blogging Myths.
