NO RULES WEEKEND BLOG PARTY #221!




How are you all doing this week?

I have to say I am very worn out! Star has 
been taking shorter naps and waking up 
earlier, and she is busy! I just tell myself 
this child is keeping me young! 

Lately we've been attending a couple fun 
activities at the library during the week, 
and then afterwards Star has me trudging 
through the snow in our yard. 

It is all very tiring for me (being a mom in my 
mid-forties and all), but then I think about 
how one day soon she will be in school and 
we will no longer have this time together.

Now before I get all sad, are you ready to find 
some new blogs to read? And perhaps gain 
some new followers? 

Or maybe you'd like to grow your social networks, 
or make a sale or in your Etsy shop? 

Well come join the fun :)

The party normally runs from Thursday mornings 
at 6 am US EST until 3 am US EST Monday. 

If you follow me in any way  please leave 
me a quick comment and I will follow 
you back as soon as I can :) 

If you'd like to display my party button on 
your blog, just click on the "My Buttons"  
tab on the right sidebar to access the code.

 Sharing helps direct more lovely 
bloggers to the party, which in turn means 
a chance of more traffic for all of us!

Let's party!

  2. Momming in the mid-forties is a rough business! I am exhausted...like all of the time! I suppose I will just be tired for the rest of my life! Good luck to you. We are tougher than we even know! Thanks for the link up and have a fab weekend.

    1. Soooo fast! In addition to my 3 year old I have a 13 year old and two older children who are 22 and almost 25 (yikes!!). I cannot believe the time went so quickly with my older two..makes me more appreciative of the time I have with the other two. I don't care how tired I am, I will keep plugging along!!

  8. I can relate, Paula. I was 40 when my last daughter was born. Thank goodness my older kids all helped out (even though 2 were already in college lol). She's a teenager now and I wonder how the time passed so quickly. Thanks for the party this week:).

    1. I so clearly remember my children when they were babies. Looking back it is just crazy how fast the time goes. One of my favorite quotes is "the days are long, but the years are short". Such a true statement. Thank you for stopping by! Happy Weekend to you :)

  19. Awww, don't be sad! Just enjoy the present time. They keep telling me having kids keeps me young too. I'm not sure if I really believe it, but I try to convince myself it's true. ;) Linking up and added your button to my posts. Thanks for not being a rule nazi, by the way! Hope your weekend is treating you well.

    1. You're right that we should live in the moment! And I think kids keep you young because you don't stop moving...ever lol. And I'm certainly not one for rules. I'm a rule breaker!

      Thank you for linking up, adding my button, and for tweeting!!
      Happy Weekend :)
