What’d You Do This Weekend? #12

Welcome to the new week. If you are a regular here thanks for coming back and if this is your first time, welcome! I hope you enjoy the party.

Such a sad and dramatic week last week.  It made me pause to think about those things for which I am truly grateful.  Of course, I am grateful for my friends and I really thought that Ladies Holiday’s contribution to the party came at just the right time.  It was the mid-week feature.


These contributions also lifted my spirits.

Niki’s Sweet Side -Isn’t that beautiful? Almost, too beautiful to eat (almost).

Domestic Superhero  – How cute and the perfect new baby gift.

Thanks so much for sharing these lovely ideas! If you would like to get a featured button you can grab one here.

I am open to everything except promos, political material and Etsy Shops. Recipes, crafts, house and yard projects, sewing, restaurant review or even your weekend road trip ramblings are all welcome links. You’ll note by the title of the site that I like ramblings! Whatever. I like to read and learn new things. I will be having weekly features that I will promote on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest our Monthly Newsletter and anyplace else I can think to share. We just ask that you place our button on your post or on your parties page or link us somewhere.

If you would like to co-host just send us an email and we’ll set it up as soon as possible.

This weekend was time to finish getting the garden set.  I repainted my patio furniture, painted my garden markers (thanks SaltTree), planted the rest of my summertime seeds and vegetables and (whew!) then I rewarded myself with this delicious Grilled Cheese Green Chile Hamburger.

    I added my post on how to set yourself up to have your photo appear on Google when someone is searching. It’s called “Want Your Picture To Show On Google Searches?” Having a photo appear makes the author look like such an expert and should get more clicks, too. ♥
