BEST OF THE WEEKEND 12.14.18: AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!





Greetings, friends!
Welcome to Best Of The Weekend

I have some major news to share with you.

After almost four years,  
it's time for me to end my run as 
a Best Of The Weekend co-host.
Co-hosting has been a wonderful experience
which has helped me to grow as a blogger, 
and make many new friends. 
I will miss it....... but it's time to move on.  
As you may recall from this post,
I've changed my blog to focus exclusively on travel, 
and I need to concentrate fully on branding myself in that way.
I want to thank all of you who have stopped by each week
to link up your posts, or to browse the thumbnails........
making this party one of the best in blogland!

Thank you! 😘 

As it happens, Ginnie and Paula will be leaving as well, 
but the party is in EXCELLENT hands with co-hosts
Please make a note to link up with them going forward!  
 
Next week will be our final party of the year.
Beginning in January, Liberty, Neena and Shelley 
will push back the start time of Best Of The Weekend 
to 8:00am on Fridays,
instead of 8:00pm, giving you more time to link up!
Please put a reminder on your calendar right now,

so you don't forget! 

And now, it's time to start my penultimate party.

BEST OF THE WEEKEND 12.7.18





Welcome to Best Of The Weekend, friends!
The holiday countdown is on!
Tonight is the sixth night of Hanukkah,

and there's just over 3 1/2 weeks until Christmas!
My mind has already switched gears to New Years Eve,
as we are hosting our annual gathering of friends.
Plus, I have grand plans of painting all of the furniture
 in the guest room to have it ready for New Year's Eve.
BAH-Hah-Hah-Hah-HAH!!!
Somehow, I think that project is going to slide to January! 😉

I'm hoping to find a few recipes and holiday decor ideas
for New Year's Eve at tonight's BOTW party.
How about you? 
Do you need some inspiration for the holiday season?
Well, you've come to the right place.
It's all right here ↓ at BOTW!

We'd appreciate it if you'd follow the BOTW co-hosts.
