Unexpected Announcement

Hello all! I know you came here for the party, and I had no intention of not hosting this week, but here I am sitting at my computer wondering if I should be taking a break. 


If you were a follower before my blog party started you would know that I used to post regularly. Recipes, handmade things and my kids were my favorite topics. Then a few years ago I decided to take an unannounced break. Everyone wondered where I went, for a good reason, but I couldn't bring myself to open my blog and explain my absence. 

Then one day I decided I was ready to begin blogging again. The only problem was I was in a totally different place in life and things weren't the same. I haven't had the time or energy to plan regular posts, and my blog party became the only thing keeping me going. The amazing thing about the blog party was that it turned into a big party! With many participants! 

I tried to let everyone who participated in my parties that I really appreciated them taking the time to stop by. Especially since I didn't really have much else to share. I've enjoyed all your wonderful comments, and for the follows on various social media channels. What I didn't like was that there were sooooo many wonderful posts shared, and I didn't have the time to visit each one and to comment that I appreciated them linking up. 

So this is where I am right now. I'm really not sure how long this break will be. If and when I do return, I feel that I may start an entirely new blog. It would be nice to have a fresh start, but only time will tell...

Best wishes to you all :)

NO RULES WEEKEND BLOG PARTY #283!


How are you all doing? This past week was pretty 
uneventful. We had planned to go dress shopping
for my 14 year old's semi formal, but haven't
yet made it there. She knows the exact
 dress she wants, and it's very pretty. It
almost makes me wish that I was 
her age again...ALMOST ;)

This week I'm going to ask a question and if you'd
like to answer leave it in the comments below! 

The question is if you could go back in time
to Middle School/High School would you?

My answer in short is no. Two things that I really do enjoy 
from way back when were the friendships that I still
maintain, and the music. (Hint..big hair and loud
guitars.) Other than that I can do without the
rest. Especially the big hair.

Well enough talk! It's time to get this party started! 
The party has grown so much in the last six months. 
So much fun! And it's all thanks YOU out there,
for all the shares and follows :)

Are you ready to find some new blogs to read? 
And perhaps gain some new followers? Or 
maybe you'd like to grow your social 
networks, or make a sale in 
your Etsy shop?

 Please link up all your wonderful posts below!

The party normally runs from Thursday mornings 
at 6 am US EST until 3 am US EST Monday. 

If you follow me in any way please leave 
me a quick comment and I will follow 
you back as soon as I can :) 

 I'd love if you shared the party on whichever social
media you prefer..Sharing helps direct more 
lovely bloggers here which in turn 
hopefully means more traffic 
for everyone!

NO RULES WEEKEND BLOG PARTY #282!


This past week we had our first dance related activity
for Star..costume check for her dance recital.
Normally Star isn't much into frilly or poofy,
so it was a nice change to see her in the
costumes. Below is my favorite pic that
took of her that day. 


There's still more fun events coming up, so I will have
more to share in the coming weeks.

Now it's time to get this party started!

NO RULES WEEKEND BLOG PARTY #281!


What do you all have going on? Crafting, cooking, 
decorating, gardening? Let me know by 
sharing below!  

This week has me preparing for a dance recital
and all related activities for Star, and for a
middle school graduation along with a
semi-formal dance. 

These are going to be a few very expensive months,
but well worth the memories they will bring. I'm
pretty sure I will have some photos to share
during the next few weeks. I certainly 
don't share photos as much as I'd
like, but I hope to have some
good ones soon.

Now it's time to get this party started!
