Welcome back to another week of our Motivational Monday Link Up Party!
I am looking for ‘guest’ bloggers for the dates of June 26, June 30 or July 3. If you’re interested in doing a guest post on my blog on one of those dates, please send me an email or note in the comments. I would need the HTML one week prior to your date. Thank you!
The kids are OUT for the summer and we enjoyed our first week and weekend, homework free! The photo below shows Nathan moving up to 4th grade as he goes to sit with his new teacher and Autumn is moving up to 1st grade to sit with her new teacher!
So, what did we do on this first week/weekend off of school?
We went to the zoo with my parents, made our second dessert (strawberry pudding pie) with our strawberries from Eckerts, Grandma and Pa bought Nathan a tank and supplies for a turtle they are getting him AND we had our first board game night. Nathan got Ticket to Ride for his birthday and we all LOVED it. It is for 8+, but Autumn enjoyed it and did ok playing with our help.

Meet Your Hosts
Ready to share what has been motivating you this past week? Link up a recent post of yours, something that motivates you to create or just be awesome! Our goal is for this link up to focus on craft, DIY, & home posts so please try to remember that when linking up.
- Limit it to three links per week and remember to link directly to your post, not your blog.
- Do not link stores, giveaways, or other link parties.
- Be sure to hop around some of the other posts that have been linked up to share the love and get motivated by what others have been up to…because of course, this is Motivational Monday after all.
Each week, your hosts will choose a few posts to feature from the previous week. If you want a chance at being featured, you must follow all of the hosts. By linking up, you agree to let each host share your photo and link back to your site. Link party goes live Sunday 6pm PST and ends Thursday at 5pm PST.
Feel free to grab a Motivational Monday button in the sidebar to put on your own blog if you want to help spread the love!
Faux Concrete Succulent Planters
Michele from The Scrap Shoppe, created these concrete succulent planters from FOAM balls. I know… brilliant! I also love the gold stripe she added with washi tape to each planter. Better yet, the succulents are fake… no watering or extra care needed!
