::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:

~How sweet is this Vintage School Desk from Crafty Texas Girls?

~Kelli has a whole week of Disney going on. Check out her Personalized Mickey Shirts.

~Sarah found a thrifty way to make Pottery Barn Pillows.

~A Beach House Tour at Julia's had me swooning!

~And Me? This week featured:

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:
Weekend Bloggy Reading

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 am giddy with excitement because some of the girls from my MOPS group are heading out to dinner and a movie tomorrow night. I always look forward to girls' nights out. Such a nice stress reliever. We're just doing sandwiches at Panera, and then heading over to see The Help, which I have been dying to see since I read the book at the beach! Have you seen it?

What are you up to this weekend?

I'll be back tomorrow with some highlights from Weekend Bloggy Reading!

  6. You've had another good week here, Amanda! What am I doing this weekend?? Taking Preston to college, that's what. So I linked up a post I wrote reflecting about the past 18 years. I can't believe how fast it's gone by. Give your little ones a hug for me!
