Best of the Weekend!

Best Of Weekend at Little Miss Celebration

Welcome to Best of the Weekend! A whew-it’s-Friday welcome from me, Claire, Lisa and Nichi! Hope everyone had a good week and is as happy as I am that the weekend is here.  Weekends are SO crazy busy for me, though! One thing about working full-time, just about everything has to get crushed into two days. It seems like before I can catch a breath, it’s Monday morning. I really look forward to Friday nights and the chance to spend some time with all of you – your friendship, creativity and inspiration are like an instant energy recharge for me!

When you link up to Best of the Weekend, your posts will be now be seen on all FOUR of our blogs. Our party board on Pinterest keeps growing and we’ll be pinning your fantastic projects and recipes, plus tweeting and sharing as many of your posts as we can on Facebook for lots of added exposure. As always, to my wonderful non-blogging friends – just click on any picture in the link-up and it will take you straight to the blog of the talented person who so generously shared with us!

Each week, Claire, Lisa, Nichi and I will each feature the most clicked link and our favorites, so be sure to stop by all three of our blogs to see if you were featured! Visit Claire here, Lisa here and Nichi here!

Some of our very dear blogging buddies help keep the party going all weekend long – hope you’ll join me at these parties!

How about some applause for our features? Our most clicked link was…Angela’s sweet spring cookies!
