Taking A Timeout Thursday {No.35}

I’m so glad that you could make it to the party!  We had quite a few new “linkers” last week so make sure to check out a few other posts and stop by and say hi :)  You may notice my blog looks a little different.  I did some re-designing over the weekend trying to clean it up a little bit.  What do you think of the social media buttons up in the header (on the right)? Are they visible enough or should I move them back to my sidebar?  I’d love your feedback!

VBS started this week so we have been BUSY!  VBS all morning and then swim classes at night – I sure could use a nap right now :)  We are in Week 2 of the 6 Week Summer Reading Adventure Series that I am co-hosting with Mari from Inspired by Family Magazine.  This week I shared fun crafts and activities for The Rainbow Fish.  You can check that out here.

I also have a giveaway going on foMott’s® Medleys Fruit Flavored Snacks – 4 winners too!  Alrighty!  Enough chit-chat…let the party begin!

Please remember to visit a few other posts while you .  here and leave a comment – everyone loves comments!

Here are this week’s features…
