NO RULES WEEKEND BLOG PARTY #274!


This week we've been enjoying spring-like weather again,
and even made two trips to the ocean. We had so much fun.
On the way home the first day we made a quick stop to a
place where you can see groups of seals sunning on 
rocks. My little one wasn't impressed, but this 
was one time I really wish that I had a better
camera. I just need to be patient while I
continue to save for one.

Here is a screenshot of my bitmoji standing where the 
river meets the ocean, which is where the seals hang out.
Wish I had a better photo to share, but since I don't
my likeness below will have to do :)



Recently I have been feeling the urge to away from NH
but don't think I could leave the ocean behind. Has 
anyone ever moved away from the ocean? Do you 
miss behind able to hop in your car and
go whenever you like? Is there anyone
out there who has never seen the
ocean in person? I may never
leave NH, but life works in
mysterious ways!

Now it's time to get the party started! I know you 
all have something wonderful to share! 

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 in 
your Etsy shop?

 Please link up all your wonderful posts below!

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 :) 

 I'd love if you shared the party on whichever social
media you prefer..Sharing helps direct more 
lovely bloggers here which in turn 
hopefully means more traffic 
for everyone!

Let's party!

  1. Paula, it's funny you asked about the ocean...I grew up in Pennsylvania so we visited the Jersey shore every summer. Now that I am in Upstate NY, I haven't been to the ocean in years. My kids (ages 5 and 7) have never seen the ocean in person. We do go to Lake Ontario often and that is what they know as the "beach" but they have never been to the oceanside. I think I need to make that happen for them soon.

    1. Hi Shelbee! I've never been to the Jersey Shore! I think you should plan a family trip to where you used to go as a child. I think it's so nice to share things you experienced as a child with your own children. Thanks for sharing..hope you have a great weekend :)

    1. Hi Claire! I did hear that there was a snowstorm over your way! Hopefully it melts quick! We still have some snow chances, but I hope it stays all rain. I'm done lol. Thanks for linking up! Happy Snowy Weekend :)

  3. I can't imagine leaving the coast now, but I was actually in fifth grade before I ever saw the ocean. We've been here for over twenty years, and our kids also love the area and want to stick around. If they stick, I'm stickin' too!

    1. Hi Michele! If all my kids were to stay in this area I wouldn't think of leaving, but my daughter is already off to Colorado, and my son talks about going "up north". I have two more to go so I guess it would all depend on where they end up and who needs me most lol. Thanks for sharing with the party! Have a lovely weekend :)

  4. I live on a town that is on the ocean and I wouldn't want to move away. I have lived here all my life and it would be so odd to not be able to see the ocean everyday! Thanks for hosting.

    1. Hi Patrick! That's so nice that your town is on the ocean! I'm less than an hour away, but closer would be nice. Thank you for linking up..Happy Weekend :)

  5. I love the ocean, and live near enough that I can day-trip, which is enough for me. I think the way you feel about the ocean is the way I feel about the mountains. I live right at the base of Mt. Rainier's foothills in Washington State. For one year in college, I moved to another area (ironically, closer to the ocean), and I missed those mountains so much!!

    1. Hi Joy! At least you've been able to visit the ocean. And rarely going makes it more special when you are there. Thank you for linking up! Have a lovely weekend :)

  10. I like your bitmoji. Very nice! 😀 We don't live nearby an ocean but we can do a trip to somewhere close by if we really had the urge. Unfortunately with the weather being so cold, the ocean doesn't seem super appealing right now. Thank you for the link up and happy Thursday!

    1. Hello Maureen! Since the weather's been going back and forth here from winter to spring and back again, I decided to take the spring-like days for my beach days. Otherwise I wouldn't even think about going! Thanks for sharing with the party..Have a terrific weekend :)

  11. Paula, I've lived on both coasts and the Gulf of Mexico and now I live in the desert Southwest. They all have their beauty, but there is something special about the ocean, isn't there?! By the way, I was born in Dover, NH. Thanks for the party!

  16. Hi Paula! One of the posts I shared at today's party is about preparing for snowstorms. We had one yesterday and I think you probably got it - at least the winds - too? I am in Upstate NY. We had that springlike weather last week but "back to reality" here! In addition to my storm prep post I shared a collection of pretty and practical tote bags for busy moms plus my newest favorite low-carb recipe for loaded cheese crisps. They taste great!

    1. Hi Sinea! Thank you for sharing your fantastic posts! We did get the same storm as you, but instead of snow it was lots of rain and wind with extremely high tides at the coast. And they're saying snow again this coming week. Right now I'm trying to ignore that forecast. Hope you're having a great weekend :)

  18. We live about an hour/ hour and half from the coast and I can't imagine moving so far away that I could not make a day trip there. We enjoyed spring like weather the past week too until Friday hit with a huge storm and we lost power for a few days. Let me tell you it was pretty chilly without our regular heating system. Thank goodness for the woodstove and fireplace!

    1. Oh goodness you lost power :( That is always a stressful thing. Especially when it's not just a few hours, but days. Thankfully you have other heating options. Hopefully all is back to normal now! Thank you for sharing with the party :)
