::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:

~Chris made some Curtains from tablecloths, and they are fabulous!

~Free Autumn Dessert Flags from Amy.

~Homemade Cleaners that will save you some money!

~Ann Marie shared her Repurposed Melissa and Doug Puzzle Trays.

~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 trying to last until Monday, when Natalie starts kindergarten and Michaela Byrd starts preschool. I have run out of fun mom things to do and I am simply surviving until then. I've got a meeting on Saturday that will keep me busy most of the day, and I plan on spending Sunday locked in a closet chanting "Serenity Now" to myself repeatedly. I'm not even sure we'll go to Sunday School because I am not letting the slightest chance of some germ coming and getting my kids sick and spoiling my their chance at enjoying the first day of school. Call me crazy if you must. I'm taking every precaution....

What are you up to this weekend?

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

  3. Hi lovely,

    I so enjoy your blogging series. Thank you for taking the time to post them!

    Now I'm off to check out some other links!

    Thank you for hosting!


  4. The curtains-from-tablecloth post was one of my favorites this week. So darn smart. I've been looking for extra extra long curtains for our living room and I think this is the most affordable way to go.

  5. It has been a crazy week for me so I haven't had much time for blog reading, I love your week recap to catch up!

    Love that crayon wreath!

    Thank you, as always, for setting up the link party. It is always fun.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Love your crayon wreath and Blogging Myths post this week - but then I love everything you do :)

    Thanks for hosting! Looking forward to gettin' my blog reading on!


  7. Thanks for hosting! Love your wreath and your features! Have a great weekend!

  8. I love the crayon wreath. You can't go wrong with all those gorgeous colors. THanks for hosting.

  9. Ahh! That is so funny! The post about tablecloth to curtains - I actually bought the same exact tablecloths (4 of them) about 4+ months ago and turned them into curtains for my house and a shower curtain for the kids bathroom. I love it! I actually posted a picture of the curtain (still in progress) in my post/link up today! How funny! Thanks for hosting!

  10. Wow! Looks like some really great stuff linked up! I need to hurry and get something linked up! Thanks for putting this together, it's so fun going through all the links.

  11. Thanks for hosting! Have a great weekend.

  12. Thanks for hosting the party. (And I have to tell you, I am really enjoying your blogging myth series....)

  13. Amanda, you will get no judgement from me. I was so ready for my boys to go back to school I could practically taste it! I don't remember ever being so ready for them to go back. That will not win me any Mommy of the Year awards but it is the truth. AND we did get sick the 1st week of school....2 days before the first smiffle appeard so best of luck keeping your girls healthy.

  14. Thank you so much for hosting! Have a great weekend!


  15. The crayon wreath is adorable! I have had it saved in pinterest forever. Wonder if it can handle 100+ degree Texas heat? :)

  16. Thanks for hosting, Amanda. I've been MIA lately, but not because I don't like it here. Totally hear you about being ready for school to start. My post is about just that, actually. Good luck with your weekend. I'm sending "stay healthy" prayers your way :).

  17. My boys started this week. My little one is in kindergarten so it was quite an emotional week for me! Thanks for hosting this weekend!

  18. hiya amanda!
    only just found your blog today (thru a blog - thru another blog - you know how it goes!)
    i've linked up a post today - am so excited to find another linky party.
    thanks for much for hosting.
    look forward to looking around the party and your blog!
    have a great weekend.

  19. Amanda, I completely understand about the kids going back to school. You just need a break! But then, in a few days, you'll miss them. Catch 22!

    Linking up again to your wonderful Weekend Party.

  20. Amanda, You're too funny. In a closet chanting!! I'm sure you'll all make to the first day of school. Then you'll be singing happy day. = )

    Great features this week. I love those curtains. Gotta make me some.

    Have a good weekend!

  21. Thanks for hosting again! And YES...fall is in the air here in Nova Scotia too...YESSS!!!

  22. Girl, I hear you! I was so ready for school to start, and completely baffled by the moms saying summer went so fast and they're gonna miss their kids all day, yadda yadda yadda... Really? I say school is awesome and learning is awesomer, and time for mommy's batteries to recharge is pretty awesome too! Don't worry- you'll make it! Make sure to do something super fun and relaxing on your first day back!

  23. Looks like you have some great stuff linked up! I am enjoying checking them out!


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! :)
