Enjoying the Summer – Best of the Weekend 7/12/19

Welcome to this week’s edition of Best of the Weekend link party!  As always, we are so happy you could join us!  We also hope you are enjoying your summer which seems to be flying by!  How is July almost half over already?  In New Jersey, most schools don’t start until after Labor Day but I am sure many of you are getting your kids ready to go back soon.

Each week, we invite you to link up your creative posts including anything DIY, home decor, recipes, crafts and more!  We are always so inspired by all the talent out there!

Before we begin this week’s party, let’s take a look back at the past week…

Every week, we share the most popular post from the previous week’s party on both of our blogs.  In addition, each hostess picks a few favorites to share.  Be sure to check out each of our blogs to see all the features!

Also, remember to stop by our original Best of the Weekend Pinterest Board  and our newest Best of the Weekend Link Party Features where we pin the features each week!   For now, we will continue to pin the features to both of those boards.

*Each week, I also share the features on my Instagram stories so be sure to follow along!

We always appreciate when we see people promoting our link party so Pin, Tweet and share away on social media!  Be sure to tag us so we can send you a thank you and give you a shout out at the next link party.



As many of you know, I also host a monthly travel link party and this week I shared the travel party highlights…

While we all relax and take our time enjoying the summer, we still have to think about dinner!  No wonder these Easy Crockpot Summer Meals were so popular last week!

  5. Thanks for hosting! This week I am bringing more goodness from the garden. Tuna Salad in a Cantaloupe Bowl with cottage cheese and pineapple kicks off the list. Then a cucumber, tomato and red onion salad for a lite summer lunch. To round off the menu is a simple but delicious Cucumber and Onion side dish! Enjoy!
