You're Gonna Love It~Memorial Day Edition

Although this day is celebrated with BBQ's, pool parties an picnics, I didn't want it to pass without sharing my respect and to honor the men & women that have given their all to protect the freedoms we enjoy everyday. I also take a moment to thank those in my family that proudly served their country. From cousins, to uncles and especially to my father, thank you!
My apologies for getting the party up late last week!  
This little peanut had me wrapped around his fingers all weekend! 
And getting to see my youngest son receive his college diploma was the icing on the best cake ever! Although it was a short trip, we crammed as much as we could into the 4 days and you can bet I cried as we were leaving!

Now how about we get back on track and party hardy!!
It's Time For 
The Features of the Week
We had a tie for most viewed last week!  First up, Lisa from the blog Fresh Eggs Daily
Lisa showed us how to create a flower frog for mason jars. I am so going to be doing this as I love using my mason jars as vases but hate when the flowers flop!

Next up, Jody from Easy Peasy Mom showed us 6 Easy Storage Ideas from the Dollar Store
I am printing her list out and keeping it in my purse for the next time I go to the Dollar Store as I can never remember such great ideas!

As promised, I have two picks this week!  First, I am in love with Patti's upcycle of a leaky birdbath!
I also love the name of her blog, Old Things New! Go give her a visit!

My other pick of the week is a recipe for 30-Minute Jambalaya
Kristi from The Classy Chapter just rocked my world by linking this recipe up last week!  Mr. B loves Jambalaya and I love quick & easy meals!  Winner!

If you have been featured here, or over at my fabulous co-hort Kim's blog, (she has a different Pick of the Week so go check it out...was it you?) make sure to grab an I've Been Featured button here.

Just a reminder: IF you follow me on Facebook you get first notice of this party going live each week.  Plus, I share some pretty funny and awesome stuff on my page over there too!

Now, are you ready to party??
Feel free to link up anything you have created (recipes, decor, crafts, written or photographed). Anything you are so proud of you just gotta share it with others. We do ask that you please DO NOT link up giveaways, Etsy shops or anything for sale. Save those for the first Tuesday of each month when, Anything Goes!  We will reserve the option of deleting any post that we do not feel fits the theme of our blogs.

You can follow Kim and I on social media, but it is not required. (We want you to follow us because you want to, not because you have to.)

We would love it if you would link back in some way so that others come and party with us. Either grab the party button or add my blog link to your post or on your blog party page. But again, it's not required.
