Weekend Links, 10.2.10

Yesterday was my last day at work. That means today is my first official day as a stay-at-home mom and/or work-from-home mom. It really depends on when you ask and how I’m feeling at that given moment.

It doesn’t really matter for now, though, because today is Birthday Party Day. So I’m pretty much consumed with all things Veggie Tales and I’M THIS MANY NOW!!!

While I’m busy twisting streamers and staging mini cupcakes, I’ll leave you with a few of the blogs and posts I’ve been enjoying most lately.

Also, I don’t want you to miss a fun project that some of my favorite blogging ladies are doing this month. The Nester and seven of her friends are spending the entire month of October sharing 31 Days to SOMETHING. From a less messy nest to a better photo, I can’t wait to read this series!

      Thanks, Jenny! (And after a week on vacation, I know what you mean about being so far behind!)
