::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! Please be sure to read my guidelines before you add a link!

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

~Setting Goals for Your Blog via The Inspired Room

~DIY Photo Backdrop via The DIY Show-Off

~Pinterest "Netiquette" Rules via My 3 Boybarians

~Kids' Cottage Play Kitchen via Remodelaholic

~And Me? This week featured:

Time to link up your best post of the week!

  • 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. 
  • Remember this party is for your best post of the week. Don't link up 10 posts...that's really not in the spirit of this party.
  • Please visit some of the other links--that's how a good blog party works--participation!
*A text link-back (ex- Linking to Serenity Now) is fantastic, but here's the button code if you'd prefer to use that rather than a text link-back:
Weekend Bloggy Reading

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

What are you up to this weekend? Tonight is Moms' Night Out! We're doing movie and a makeover at my friend Michelle's house, and I am so excited. But before I can enjoy myself, I have to take the girls to the pediatrician for their yearly check-ups this afternoon...which generally means much wailing and gnashing of teeth. So please wish us all luck!

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

  1. Our date nights often turn out to be a walk around our neighborhood! We have four busy kiddos so a walk is the alone time we don't get very often!
    Thank you for hosting!

  6. Love that photo backdrop idea! I actually have been looking around to see how bloggers do this. This one looks easy but professional!

  7. The more I see of Pinterest the more I would loved to get sucked in...but there enlies the problem. Ha! What to do? What to do? :)

    Mom's night out sounds p.e.r.f.e.c.t. (especially after a trip to the dentist. Not fun. Fortunately for me, I am blessed with three kids who actually LIKE going. Hallelujah!) Hope your day is as stress-free as possible!

  8. Hey girl! It's been a couple of weeks since I joined the party; I'm glad to be here.

    Thanks so much for hosting this forum for us to add any kind of link. It's nice not to be limited to one particular kind of post, and it's fun to see what posts other bloggers are most proud of.

    Hope you've had a great week!

  9. Hi Amanda - I just linked up to your link party!! Thanks for hosting! Definitely want to try you Nutella PB chocolate croissants!! My boys will love them! Have fun on your Mom's night out!!!

  10. Hi Amanda! I see that my link #51 (DIY Love Votive Candle Set), has a red x mark to the left of the number and description of my link, below the picture...anyone know why this might have happened and what I can do differently next time to prevent this x mark from showing up?

    Thanks for the help!! :)

  12. Yay for Moms night out! I will be staying home. I went to bed last night with a fever and body aches! UGH! Have a great weekend!

  13. Thanks for hosting again, Amanda. BTW, I loved reading your post on the American Girl store. It's right in my backyard but I've never been -- and I don't really have any prospects since I don't have any girls (sniff, sniff). Fun to experience it vicariously!

  14. Your croissants still have me drooling! Good luck at the doctor today...our visits are usually harder when one than one of my boys has to see the doctor! I linked up my Play-Doh Valentines this week! Thanks for hosting, have a great weekend:)
