::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

~A new link party next Monday! Home for the Holy Days via Imparting Grace (this one focuses on the Reason for the Season, love it!)

~Gingerbread House Decorating Contest via Infarrantly Creative

~Snowman Juiceboxes via Random Thoughts of a SUPERMOM

~Cozy Christmas Kitchen via Sweet Something Designs

~Chic Christmas via Amanda Carol at Home

~Beautiful Use of Greenery via Honey We're Home

~And Me? This week featured:

          Time to link up your best post of the week. Please remember that this party is dedicated to showcasing your best post of the week--we've had some issues with people linking up 10 or more posts each week, and some of them for multiple weeks in a row.

          • Please link back to me within your post. I will not feature your link if you don't link back to me.
          • No items for sale, shops, etc. and please don't link up the same post week after week. 
          • Please visit some of the other links--that's how a good blog party works--participation!

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

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

          What are you up to this weekend? T and I are going on a DATE's a businessy dinner, but I am looking forward to dressing up and going out with my man. Hoping to get the girls to see Santa on Saturday, and I'm taking little miss Natalie on a date Sunday to see a local ballet company's performance of The Nutcracker...she is beside herself with excitement.

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

            LOVE the silhouette ornaments. Pinning those!

          5. Hey girl--I'm sorry I "linked and ran" earlier--I got called away from the computer the minute I finished entering my link. I apologize for that!

            I'm linking up my "inner Martha" post; it's the post I feel best about this week. You, on the other hand, have great posts every day! I loved reading about your trip to New York most of all. I think that's one of the neatest traditions.

            Thank you so much for mentioning my "Home for the Holy Days" party on Monday. I really appreciate your telling your readers about it. I'm so hoping that lots of people will share good ideas for keeping Christ in focus at Christmastime. It means a lot to me that you mentioned it here. Thank you!!

            Have a great weekend!

          6. i thought of your cookie tins last night-we are having an exchange at work today, and i realized i don't have any to put the cookies in! ugh!

          7. Happy to be joining in with two new projects...hope you like them.

            Merry Christmas Amanda!

          17. I always enjoy reading your weekend blogging roundup as sometimes I don't have as much time to check out all the great blog news-

            Linking up to you fun party today- I think it might be my first time

          18. Thanks so much for including my Snowman Juice Boxes:) They were a big hit at Grant's party yesterday!

          19. Thanks for hosting! Have a great Christmas!

          20. I used to enjoy this weekly link up, but you seem to now pick the "bigger" blogs as your favorites and the same ones every week. It would be nice to recognize some of us who don't blog full time.


          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! :)
