NO RULES Weekend Blog Party #53!

Happy Day

Bloggy Friends!

If you're a regular reader of my little blog you've probably wondered where I been.  This past week has been a rough one.  Without going into details at the moment, I was unable to blog for an entire week.  I've come to miss the friendships I have with you all, and realized that hiding away is not the answer to any problem we encounter.  And I also wouldn't want to miss out on hosting my most popular post of the week ~ my NO RULES Weekend Blog Party!

This fun party has grown so much thanks to all my wonderful bloggy friends!
You're what makes this such a successful party!! 
There are consistently almost 150 linkups each week!

Before I get the party started, I'd like to announce the winner of last week's giveaway which I held to celebrate the one year anniversary of my NO RULES Weekend Blog Party!

The prize up for grabs is a free ad spot for one month here at Sincerely, Paula, along with a guest post opp, and daily Twitter shout-outs to my 3,500+ Twitter followers!

And the Winner is....!!!

Consie P!!

Congrats Consie!! I will be contacting you shortly :))

Now whose ready to PARTY?!  

 This party is awesome because there are NO RULES!, meaning you 
can link up anything you like!  Blogs, G+, Bloglovin', Twitter, 
Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Etsy shops...

 The party will run from now til 3AM US EST Monday :)
 If you follow me in any way GFC, G+, LF, Pinterest, FB, 
Twitter, Instagram etc. and would like a  follow back, 
please leave me a quick comment and I WILL!! 

I truly appreciate all of the linkups and comments.  
do my best to return all comments, but please bear with 
me as this takes quite a bit of time!  I just want to say 
thank you all for your kindness and participation every week :)

 If you'd like to display my blog button on 
your blog after linking up, you can grab my blog button.

  19. I have been popping over the last few days wondering where you were. I've had a pretty shocking week too but hopefully it is onwards and upwards from here on in.

    If you ever want to chat or vent or anything else that might help I'm only an email away. ms.mystery.case@gmail.com

    Thinking of you.


    ps. I can't seem to link up, it is saying the link is now closed but it now looks like last weeks blog hop? Will pop back later because knowing the luck I've had with computers this week, it is probably an issue my end.

  20. Of course it's my end and I'm not even in the right month. lol
