Weekend Planning Blog Hop

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, then you know the Happy Housers weren't in the Happy House this week. We've been kicking it Chicago style. Carl had to make the trip for work, so Cam and I tagged along. The nicest part about it is that we'll get back just in time for the weekend!

  • drive home from Chicago
  • get unpacked and start laundry
  • start tidying up the house- not sure of the state since we had our awesome dogsitters over
  • meal plan
  • participate in the October Followers Fest

  • work on the pantry project
  • make pancakes for breakfast
  • clean the dining room furniture {part of the Express Cleaning Challenge +}
  • clean the eat in area furniture {part of the Express Cleaning Challenge +}
  • carve our pumpkins

  • grocery shop
  • clean the rest of the dining room {part of the Express Cleaning Challenge +}
  • start doing some work on the next big event for the blog- it's for the holidays :)

Somewhere in There: (It's the same as last weekend. Since they were all red last Monday, I'm trying again!)
  • Bake Something Fallish
  • Make something off Pinterest
  • Paint my toes AND fingernails!

Same as last week, I'm tackling a little bit of the Plus portion of the Express Cleaning Challenge each day. Breaking it up into daily tasks makes it manageable and less daunting!

Now, more importantly, I want to know what YOU are doing this weekend! Let's get moving on to the hopping.

{How to Join}
If you haven't already, blog about your weekend plans. Maybe you have a bunch of projects you are going to tackle. Maybe you are attending party after party. Or perhaps you are laying low. Whatever it is, share it on your blog! Try to include at least one task to accomplish as that is the Happy House way ;) Feel free to use the "Weekend Planning" button in your post, the code is on the bottom right hand side of the blog. Then, come back to this blog and link up your post in the link collection at the bottom of this entry.

{Make it a Blog Hop}
If you want to participate in the hopping part of the Blog Hop, click here, copy the code provided and include it in your Weekend Planning post! The more people that participate, the further your blog will hop! :)

{Bonus for Joining}
As a little extra incentive, the first 3 people to link up their Weekend Planning posts will be featured in the sidebars of both My Happy House and A Life in Progress! Check out the new format of the blog link love. It not only includes the link, but also a thumbnail of your most recent post! Plus- from the remaining link ups after the first 3, I'll pick 2 more at random to add into the sidebar Link Love!

{Small Requirement}
All we ask in return is that you follow the two host blogs, My Happy House and A Life in Progress. Then be sure to comment and let us know if you are a new follower so we can follow you back. And of course, be sure to check out the other blog links! Simple, right?

Let's get to linking and motivating others to having a weekend with purpose!


  1. I'm also trying to bake something fall-ish this weekend. I've seen some amazing looking things on Pinterest - cranberry orange scones, pull-apart cinnamon sugar pumpkin bread. I hope both of our homes smell lovely from our baking this weekend!

  2. I want to bake some Halloween cut-out sugar cookies for hubs to take to work Monday.

    I'm hoping that between the two of us we can get the house cleaned this weekend. I hate not being able to do much, but had a c-section 9 days ago.


Molly gets just a touch happier when you comment!
