Friday Favorites Feature ::Weekend Bloggy Reading::

Happy Friday, friends!

I'm wishing you a happy day because Friday is pretty much the same as any other day around here (except there's no church and nothing good on it sad that I judge a good day by what my DVR will be recording?)

If you're look for some good reading this weekend, here's a list of some of my favorite posts from around Blogland this week:

~I'm in love with this new (to me) site: How Does She? The tagline reads "Uniting Inspirational Women Sharing Inspirational Ideas." Sounds good to me!

~Britt's Prettified solution to plain old office labels

~Looove Morning T's twist on a popular bloggy craft project! (And I love Frappucino!)

~Lindsay reminded us that Real People Don't Live in Magazine Spreads. Boy, can I attest to that!

~Beth's Family Rules Window-- a great take on a popular project. She really made hers unique.

~Tidy Mom's recipe for The Perfect Snickerdoodle...yum! Her photos will have you drooling too.

~If Kate wasn't such a sweetheart, I'd be super jealous of her gorgeous kitchen's new look. Swoon-worthy!

~Rachel from Perfectly Imperfect gave her readers some great tips for using the FlyLady system. I enjoyed reading how Rachel created a housekeeping routine for herself, and if I can get over being called a "flybaby" I might just see if I can tweak some of these ideas for myself.

~Richella shared a wonderful tutorial for anyone who's interested in trying their hand at Upholstered Headboards.

Not much planned on the homefront this weekend. Natalie's little friend A is coming over this morning, and A's mom will stay to have coffee with me. I love playdates like that! I'd love to do a little thrifting on Saturday morning...I am on the hunt for a buffet to make over. Wish me luck!

{What are your plans for the weekend? I hope it's a good one!}

  1. Love the family rules window...I may do that as well!

  2. Great collection of links!! Some I've seen, some I haven' I'm off to check those out!!

    Thanks and have a GREAT weekend!!

  3. I agree Friday is kind of a nothing day, but what I like is I can do whatever I want. I think I will visit some of these blogs. I am already familiar with Morning T, she is a love but the others I have not visited, Have a great Friday and a lovely weekend,Kathysue

  4. I hope you have a fabulous weekend!! Pretty soon the weekends will be gorgeous & warm w. sunshine, I. can't. wait!!

  5. Couldn't agree w/ you more as to how swoon worthy Kate's kitchen is. Hope you have a great weekend. I've been out of commission for the last 2 1/2 weeks so I'll be resting this weekend & hopefully catching up on some Dvr myself :-).

  6. Amanda! Thank you so much for the linky love! I appreciate it so much. I mean, REALLY appreciate it. I really like your feature posts--what catches your eye always turns out to be something that I want to see, too. So for something of mine to be on that list. . . yippee!!

    I got both headboards done and made new coverlets for the foots of the beds. And I still have a good bit of that green fabric left over. I'm afraid I went a little wild at the fabric store--I love this fabric, and I knew it would be GONE really quickly. So now I get to think about what else I can do with it. :)

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. It's another snow day here: DH is painting a room, and then will be clearing the snow. I see an afternoon of making hot chocolate and oatmeal.

    I've tried the Flylady system. It works when I actually stick to it. :)

  8. Thanks for adding us to the list!!!
    I love your 'don't send me $$ to buy weightloss or bust enhancement' in your leave a comment section.
