::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
~Melissa's License Plate Wall.

~Fabulous Glittered Pumpkin Place Card and Candle Holders from Beckie.

~Kelli's Football Windsocks.

~A Honeycomb Nursery Wall Canvas at Amy's house.

~And Me? This week featured:

  • GIVEAWAY for digital design software (make photo books, enhance blog posts, scrapbooks, etc)! Join this party and include a link back to me within your post(s) and you'll get an extra, automatic entry!
  • My Dog is Guilty
  • First Day of School
  • "Pins" to Admire and Inspire
  • **Don't forget that Monday marks the start of Family Friendly Food Week with a link up: bring your best recipes and tips (healthy snacks, comfort food, desserts, meal plans, grocery tips, couponing, you name it)! All I ask is that you link back to my blog within your post(s)!

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 get to hang out with a bunch of other moms tonight at a "Getting to Know You" moms' night out that my friend Christy and I organized for our MOPS group. Lots of good food, some fun ice breakers, and good social time. I love nights like that!

What are you up to this weekend?

I hope to be back tomorrow with some highlights from Weekend Bloggy Reading!

  5. Hi Amanda. Thanks soo much for being the hostess with the mostess! = ) Have an awesome time with the ladies tonight. I have a Dinner Club, ladies only, and love when we meet up. Girls nights are always soo much fun. Pop by and check out my latest fashion post. It may help with that very important question of "what should I wear tonight?"

  6. As always, thanks for hosting the weekend reading link party! I know we all appreciate the hard work you put in to doing it.

    There is a recipe for donuts in the party this week...I should probably thank you for just exposing me to that!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. I love the wall of license plates! Gonna have to pick up some glitter at Micheals today too :)
    Thanks again for hosting this link party. Have a great weekend!

  8. Hey girl! I can just imagine what things have been like at your house this week--I know you're glad for school to have started, but isn't it amazing how school every day just tires a little kid out? I think you were wise to do a half-day kindergarten.

    I'm linking up my post on decorating for fall without spending any money. With both Will and Preston in college, it was definitely a good thing for me not to spend any $$ on new fall decor! :)

    Have a great weekend!

  9. I love your little guilty dog. Those pictures of the girls going off to school are adorable. Have a great weekend and thanks for hosting.

  10. Thanks for hosting again. I linked up a fun crafty canvas art project. Your girls are so cute -- we have two girls also, and have always taken first school day photos.

  11. Thanks for hosting the weekend reading. :) I linked up and tweeted. Love this one.

  12. I love the name of your blog (if I said that yesterday, I'm sorry--I know I thought about it because I must think "serenity now" to myself about 25 times a day....but because of the chaos, I don't remember if I ended up posting or not!) I just wanted to thank you for hosting and allowing me to link to your site.
    Have a great weekend-

  13. Hi Amanda, thanks for this awesome little party:) I just linked up , now I'm headed to check out some of the other linkups! Looks like lots of cool stuff! Have a great weekend!

  16. Hi lovely,

    Your mum's night sounds like a perrrrfect night out!! Have a great time. ;-)


  17. Thanks for hosting Amanda! Your post about your veggie nabbing dog was too cute! :)

  18. Thanks for hosting Amanda!
    I'm looking forward to FFFW!

  19. Thanks for hosting the party. My Saturday morning pleasure is drinking coffee while enjoying clicking through the links.

    I hope that your MOPS event was a fun time.

    I'm pouring wine today for a friend who owns a winery at a festival on the Riverfront and then hoping to do a little cleaning. Six weeks of school has been a disaster for my housekeeping!


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! :)
