Welcome to the 20th week of the Social Media Mixer!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for Week 19 – we had 106 blogs and numerous social media link-ups!

Social Media Mixer-2

The Social Media Mixer is all about networking and making connections. Also, you can gain exposure and increase your social media following! Link up your blog posts and social media accounts and mix it up with some of the other linkers. Each week, the Weekday Mixer will start on Saturday nights at 8:00pm and go on until Wednesday nights at 11:59pm. A blog post will be chosen each week by each of the hosts and guest hosts and featured in the following week’s link-up!

Burlap and Polka Dot Halloween Banner from Shambray Live a Happy Life

Polka Dot Burlap Halloween Banner

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I love the cooler weather and the clothes that is brings (jackets and boots especially), I love the holidays that happen in Fall, and I love the decor. I am so excited to share this tutorial with you today. The other night I had a craft night with my friend. She proclaims to not be crafty. I do not believe it, but that is what she says. So I wanted to see how she did on this craft. I asked my husband after she left and he told me that her banner looked just as good as mine! So there you have it. This craft can be done by the self-proclaimed non-crafty people. I promise!

Confessions of an Imperfect Mom from All Of Life’s Little Adventures


Y’all know I like to keep it real around here, and lately I have been finding myself feeling guilty quite often for a lot of the parenting choices I make. Deep down I know I am a good mom, my child is loved, she is never hungry and has a roof over her head with a warm and cozy bed to sleep in every night, so why do I let the mom guilt come over me? For me, Mom guilt is the hardest part about parenting, I often journal about this topic and I have come to realize that there is a common denominator in all of the guilt, that being social media. Comparisons. Measuring up.

Pecan Cornmeal Pancakes Recipe with Homemade Caramel Sauce from The Gold Lining Girl


It’s easy for me to find inspiration for fall recipes. I think about fall food, and it brings to mind many of my favorite things: pecans, butterscotch, caramel, pumpkin (duh), honeycrisp apples… you get the picture. For me, it also conjures up cornbread. I don’t know why… maybe because cornbread dressing is a Thanksgiving staple? And I definitely associate fall with Thanksgiving? But now I’m getting ahead of myself. It’s only September (but almost October!! Omg).

The Fear Of Relapsing from PPMD News


This week, the fear of relapsing is VERY real for me. I was lucky enough to get a scholarship that allowed me 10 sessions with a therapist that has a lot of experience with postpartum mood disorders. This last Thursday was my last therapy appointment. I had mixed feelings about that day. I was excited because I feel like I am recovered and I know I wont miss the long drive (it was about 2 1/2-3 hours round trip). But I was (and still am) terrified. If I relapse, I can’t work through it with my therapist. I am very lucky that she set us up for success and went above and beyond what she had to do. But that fear is still there.

Mommy and Me Quality Time Challenge from Life’s Little Projects


This is a mommy and me quality time challenge. I am learning to budget my time, prioritize the things that are most important to me and ways my kids and I can spend some real quality time together. I don’t mean every minute of the day just some quality time each day. I want to connect with my kids. I would love for them to grow up and feel like we have a great relationship and they had a great childhood. I don’t think you need to plan every minute of your kids day with fun activities. I do think they need a variety of independent play and quality time with parents. I hope you come along for the ride and join in on the fun.

Striped Pillows from FabiFabu


These were a pair of curtain panels that were used for a short period by a family member, and were given to me for recycling. I put the fabric away for a while, until I decided what to do with it. One of the panels, was missing a piece of fabric, and I could not use it again as a curtain, I decided to make some pillows for the living room`s vintage mid-century sofa. This is an IKEA fabric, sold by the yard.

How To Get A Tattoo – Tattoo Inspiration from The Organizing Boutique


I have a routine for how to get a tattoo. Yep, you read that correctly. 🙂 I’m a professional organizer, and I’m a creature of habit. Once I do something a few times, a pattern emerges, I recognize it and the system gets established. Tattoos are no exception, so here are some of my tattoo inspiration and routine tips. Enjoy and please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions. Okay? Rock on!

A Lesson in Matthew: Enough is Enough from Raising Samuels Homeschool


Today, I am posting at Satisfaction Through Christ. I wanted to start this out with a disclaimer that I am not a psychologist or therapist or an expert on the subject I am discussing below. I am speaking from my heart. If you have an issue happening where someone is physically or emotionally hurting you, reach out to someone who can help you. This can be a trusted friend or family member or someone at your church, and they can direct you to the right resource.

Spice Your Neutral Nails-Book Style from Shambray

Book Page Fingernails

It is known that I love neutral nails. I like them plain, but I also like to spice them up a bit. Since I am a book person I decided to try transferring words from the newspaper to my nails. It is really easy.

The World Around Me {#FTSF} from 100lb Countdown


I open my garage door to a quiet cul-de-sac. I catch a glimpse of a car passing by the adjoining street, but otherwise don’t hear anything. My daughter is screaming out Almost There at the top of her lungs… and since I’m the good SAHM, I’m belting out the lyrics too. I tend to think I have a good voice, but thankfully, there doesn’t seem to be anyone around to let me know that I’m wrong.

Man Boobs from Living in Mommywood


October is upon us and aside from the crisp signs of Autumn, the spotting of beautiful leaves on the trees as they change colors, the great smell of Pumpkin this and that in the air, the sales of huge candy bags for Halloween it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
