Found & Foraged Linky Party #27

So I just have to send a big thank you to you all. This linky party has helped me connect with so many new bloggers and see so many fun projects every week. You have all made this party so incredibly amazing, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. This past week I swear I wanted to feature every single post. You all are so talented. Thank you for sharing your blogs with me. It means so much to me.

This past week I posted my 10 Summer Beach Essentials, shared a super sneak peek into my bedroom makeover, and some fun ideas on Decorating With Pink! Oh and one more fun thing, I was guest posting on Live Laugh Rowe last week and made this super fun printable that is free to download. Go get it! Don’t forget, next Saturday, May 23, I’m taking a little mini vacation from Found & Foraged. We will start back up on May 30…so mark your calendars. So what do you say? You ready to get this linky party started? I know I am!

Found & Foraged Linky Party #25

Hello! Hello! Hello you guys! Happy Found & Foraged linky party night! How’s everyone’s weekend? Mine, not too shabby! I feel like I’m finally catching up. Wahoo! March and April are always whirlwind months for me at work and home which means night time motivation is hard to come by. I apologize for my lack of posts. Lookout May and Spring, I’m back! Speaking of May, seriously, it was like summer outside today! We spent all day outside. Playing with the kids. Got the bubble machine out. The Boy was playing with his new toy…ya, he apparently had to buy himself a drone. *eyeroll with a grin* It has a few grass stains and 2 broken propellers, but he’s having fun with and that’s all that matters.

I’ve also finally finished All The Light We Cannot See for the HOH book club. I’ll have my full review on the blog Monday. If you’ve read it or are in the process of reading it, I’d love to get your take on it on the discussion page. Oh and don’t forget to check out my gift list for Mother’s Day. It’s a good one! Oh and one more thing…last one, I promise. People have asked me about Found & Foraged linky party badges. I can never get the code to come through properly from my Mac, but I have added them to the sidebar ————–>> If you want one, please go ahead and grab one. Oh, I lied ONE MORE THING! If you live in the Chicagoland are or get WGN TV the CW, be sure to tune in tomorrow, Sunday, May 3rd at 11AM. Weekend Workbench will be featuring me on their Home Hack segment! Yep, that’s right, I’m one of their new experts. Wahoo!

Found & Foraged Linky Party #24

Hello! Hello you guys! It’s Saturday night which must mean only one thing…Found & Foraged Linky Party time! I think we need to theme this linky party, “lick the screen” because you guys, the recipes that were lick the screen were out of this world, knock your socks off fantastic! From slow cooker chocolate lava cake to Oreo cookie ice cream cake to chocolate donuts. Man, I think I gained 10 lbs from just reading all of them.

How was your week? Did you guys do anything fantastic? I think I need to live vicariously through you because I didn’t do much really. I managed to accidentally take down my entire website by accident last Wednesday. That was not awesome. There was a lot of tears and swearing. I also made a fun list of 12 Mother’s Day gift ideas and posted My Morning Coffee Ritual. And in case any of you are coffee crazy, you really need to try Lodge Coffee Roasters online shop use promo code HOH. My good friend just started his online shop, so if you wind up placing an order, use the promo code HOH for 15% off. And I’m not getting paid for that, I just like it A LOT! Plus, I went to high school with him.

Found & Foraged Linky Party #23

Welcome to the Found & Foraged Linky Party! How’ve you been? Did you have a good week? For me it was a whirlwind you guys! The Boy was traveling, my parents were in town helping me and Jen Harrison aka @fleamarketfab just arrived from Ohio to help me finish the master bedroom. And let me tell you, we have been shopping up a storm! The room is looking absolutely spectacular.

Because I don’t have enough on my plate, I decided to jump into another room makeover head first. This time it’s my guest bedroom and I’m working with Decorist. Have you heard of them? I’m sharing my entire experience, start to finish, with you. I just posted Part 1 last Thursday of the 2 general mood boards. Can you guess which one I picked? I can’t wait to see the board with all the details. You know, the fun stuff like rugs and vases and artwork and pillows (that I don’t have to match myself).

Found & Foraged Linky Party #22

Happy Saturday you guys! During the last Found & Foraged party, I mentioned that I had kinda fallen behind, but I didn’t fully explain. Not only did I have family in town for the holiday, I had been prepping for some really fun and exciting projects that finally came to fruition last Tuesday. For all my fellow bloggers reading this, you know how every once in a while you have one of those amazing blog days. That day for me was last Tuesday. It doesn’t happen often, so I cherished it!

I published my latest I Make Emily Henderson Cry, and thanks to a little birdy…eh hem, I’m lookin’ at you Gilly =) …the REAL Emily Henderson wrote on my Facebook post. Literally, it was 6AM, and I about to head out to the grocery store. (Because is there a better time to pick up deli meats and avocados?) Anyhoo, I was scrolling through my phone and there she was! My eyes popped out of my head like a cartoon character, and I started to jump up and down like a banshee in the kitchen. The Boy looked at me like I was insane and completely off my rocker. I tried to speak, but the words wouldn’t form. I finally just threw my phone at him and managed to say, “LOOOOOOOOK!!!”

Also that morning, Chairish blogged a little interview about me and the Instagram Sales I’m completely addicted to. Not only am I doling out tips and tricks on how to snag the items you want, but I’m also sharing how I’ve styled the items I’ve purchased. The next one will be hosted by another one of my favorite bloggers, Waiting On Martha. She took Chairish thru the Scott Antique Market to find 25 amazing items that will go up for sale on Instagram Sunday, April 12th 9AM PT.

An to really top Tuesday off, I was filming with WGN TV (Chicago TV station) for a couple home hack segments that will appear soon on Weekend Workbench! Which reminds me, I owe an email to Ashley. Phew! That was everything I think.
