Merry Monday Link Party #18

Welcome to the Merry Monday Link Party #18!


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Can you believe August is about over??  Summer will be over soon, too.  I think I'll be ready for that crisp, cool Fall weather since it's been burning hot here in Florida!   My son is getting used to school again but with the return of school brought germs home so my little girl was sick all last week.  Along with caring for her, there's been so much going on with me lately that's keeping me extra busy here on my blog, along with outside writing assignments in other places while working on my personal writing projects ...but that's how I like it!  I will definitely need a vacation soon!  How about you?

I'm hosting the Merry Monday Link Party again this week and hope you will join in the fun!  See guidelines below and happy partying!  Enjoy the Labor Day holiday!

Merry Monday Link Party #17 Announcements:
  • The International Bacon Day Recipe Roundup is posted! *See the link below* Thank you to everyone that contributed a recipe for the roundup :-)

  • I stay busy tackling various creative projects while juggling my life as a mom, wife and friend. Some of my favorite things to do include writing, reading, traveling, photography, baking, cooking, DIY, arts, crafts and spending time with my family as we go on adventures. I am married to my best friend and together, we created two awesome kids, Brody and Brielle, who are the driving force behind this blog.

  • My name is Paris. I love to travel, take photos, drink coffee, scrapbook and make desserts. I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my 4 year old daughter while she learns through play. We are Disney addicts and spend our summer afternoons at the pool.

  • I am a girl who loves to craft and create. I enjoy paper crafts, wood projects, creating home decor, sewing, gardening, you name it, and if I haven't done it before I probably am interested in trying.When I get going on a project it takes up my whole life until it is finished. That can be a good thing and bad thing. I whip out my projects usually pretty quick but leave the disaster of a tornado behind me.

  • This pizza is definitely on my "to try" list. This will be a nice change in flavor that I'm sure the kids will love! Not to mention, it has bacon and that's always a plus :-)

My Feature Picks

Okay, so I made a mistake when I was first picking my feature picks and I was choosing from the wrong Merry Monday party!! So sorry about that but since I already informed these awesome blogs that I chose their posts, I didn't want to remove it from this week's picks.  These first two were not from the last Merry Monday Party but the next two are.  I apologize again... I blame my mommy brains!
