Here are the Featured posts from last week!
Victoria chose How To Not Get Your Feelings Hurt When Blogging from 702 Park Project. "I chose [this post] because this article discusses a topic that I have not seen throughout the web before. As bloggers we will have people say things to us that we do not like and this blog post shows bloggers how to develop a thick layer of skin and not give up blogging because someone has said something about their blog that they do not like."
Ashley chose Gold Studded Plank Wall from Houseologie. "This Gold Studded Plank Wall is absolutely amazing! Not only do the planks add texture but the small gold nail heads give the space the perfect amount of glam. Love it!"
Elie chose Mini S'mores Cheesecakes from Annie's Noms. "Nothing says summer like s'mores and these Mini S'mores Cheesecakes are perfect for any party! Looks delicious!"
Karen chose Hallway Makeover - Final Reveal from Houselogie. "This hallway makeover reveal caught my eye because I couldn't believe the transformation. It looks like a different place entirely. Love the black and white theme. Food for thought!"
Katie also chose this post. "I am absolutely IN LOVE with everything about this bright hallway makeover from Leigh Anne! First of all, it's white (my favorite color). Secondly, all the details are just gorgeous! The planked walls with gold tacks, the big arrow, the gold personalized frames, the hanging planter ... All of it is simply stunning!"
Katy chose Belly Blasting Smoothies from Happy House and Home. "Any post that starts with Belly Blasting is #1 on my list these days. I can't wait to put my Ultimate Ninja to the test with these healthy recipes! I love that they are high in protein and will keep you feeling full until your next meal."
Alycia chose Top 10 Family Activities ~Cheap Family Fun! from A Proverbs 31 Wife. "I chose this one because I am always looking for new and fun (cheap is a bonus) ideas for the family for summer!!! So great to see what other families like to do!!"
Silvie chose Patchwork Skirt Tutorial from Almost Supermom. "I really liked how easy her tutorial is to follow and how beautiful the skirt came out even though it's easy to make."
Rhonda chose Teaching Your Son to Become a Gentleman from A Cowboy's Life. "I applaud this mom for taking responsibility for teaching her son to be a gentleman. I agree chivalry is dying in our society; acknowledging that it starts at home and demonstrating the steps on how to become a gentleman is a step in the right direction."
April chose My Son Found His Passion from Two Teens and Their Mama. "As parents, we strive for our children to be the best... but we also need to remind ourselves, that they need to be the best them, not the best that we want them to be. College is not for everyone and Lana reminds us why and how this is important."
Cathy chose Red, White, & BBQ from Eat, Drink, and be Mary. "These are adorable! I can't wait to make these for our next BBQ!"
Jillian chose Freebie Friday | Daily To Do List Printable from New Mama Diaries. "I chose this post because I think we're all often on the hunt for the best way to keep track of our "to-dos." This printable is gorgeous and is the perfect option for your daily list!"
Jessica chose Mistakes | Learn and Let Go from Cayla & Ashley. "Awesome advice especially coming from 2 beautiful young girls! I don't know where I would be today if I didn't make any mistakes in my life. Their advice is good food for thought for everyone :-)."
Natasha also chose this post. "Letting go and moving forward is my motto for this year. And Cayla & Ashley have beautifully summed this up and have shown us all that mistakes are part of being human. Beautiful post!"
Tara chose Outdoor Makeover Challenge: Big Reveal!!! from Making It In The Mountains. "I just love everything about this outdoor living space! From the gorgeous table to all the little details and accessories, everything really came together and looks amazing!"
Stacey chose Sweet Saturday: Lemon Sugar Cookies from Adventures of a Jayhawk Mommy. "The hubby and I absolutely love lemony desserts, and these look wonderful! I can't wait to try these, for a wonderful summer treat! Thank you so much for sharing!"
