Wow!  Sweetwater Style has the honor of being the Featured Blog on the “Lovin’ the Weekend Blog Hop!

My bloggy friends know all about how vital Link Parties and Blog Hops are for growing readership….so I know they will all join in the fun!

But for those of you who are “readers” not “writers”…I hope you take a moment to hop over and take a look at some of the blogs on the HOP!  The information is at the bottom of the post!

I have had a busy week….the most fun was taking my mom to her 65th class reunion!
It was fun driving on all the country road revisiting her memories AND mine!

Here is the farm where my mom grew up and where I lived with her, my brother and grandparents when my dad was in Korea.

Don’t you wonder how many times my mom has walked down this road!

I think I remember that the mailbox was down the road from the lane.

This is the next house my grandparents lived in.  I spent many summer days here….

This is the house where my grandmother taught me how to sew! 

This is the house (hospital) where I was born!

So you can see we had a wonderful time revisiting old times!


On to the party!

Welcome to Lovin’ The Weekend Blog Hops with your co-hosts:
Karen from Tots and Me, Rena from An Ordinary Housewife and Angie from Snack Cups and Smiles.
Thank you to every one who has stopped by, whether this is your first visit or you have been a faithful ongoing participant! 
We would love for you to stop by each of the co-hosts and follow us, then feel free to add your links to any or all of the following linkies.
 We also randomly choose a Featured host each week from the Lovin’ The Readers linky. This week we are featuring Mary at Sweetwater Style.

Sweetwater Style
Here’s what she has to say:
Hi everyone, I am Mary at Sweetwater Style.  I am excited to be participating as the Featured Host on Lovin’ the Weekend Blog Hops.  Sweetwater Style is 2 years old and growing just because of the wonderful people who host and manage Blog Hops and Link Parties. We “newbie bloggers” couldn’t do it without them.  I believe that “Style is the perfection of your point of view”! I blog to share the process of finding that point of view…and to let people know that being creative in a thrifty way is possible for anyone.  Alas, things are hardly ever perfect, but the process is thoroughly enjoyable. I am not a decorator….but I decorate. I am not a florist….but I arrange a mean bouquet. I am not a tailor…but I can refashion clothing. I am not a carpenter….but I can use power tools. I am: a teacher, wife, empty nester, crafter, thrifter, reader, writer, seamstress, gardener and sometimes (not often)cook!  Stop by often to visit and see what I am up to!

Don’t forget to link up to the Lovin’ the Readers Hop if you would like a chance to be a Featured host next week. Please comment with a way to contact you, especially if there is not an obvious way mentioned on your blog. We would love to include a little write up about you and your blog in the next week’s Lovin’ The Weekend Blog Hop post, including a link to your blog. And you will get to include the linky codes on your blog. Sound fun? We’re looking forward to getting to know our readers better.

Here’s how this blog hop works. We would appreciate it if you would follow Tots and Me, An Ordinary Housewife and Snack Cups and Smiles. And please don’t forget to visit our Featured Host. If you no longer have GFC please follow in some other way. After that there are three different linkies you can link to. Whichever one you choose to link to, please grab that button and share it on your blog (the codes are on Tot’s and Me’s sidebar). We’d love it if you could tweet or in some other way share about this blog hop, the more people who know about it, the more potential visitors and new followers of your blog. We’d love to meet some new friends this weekend.  
Some people are more interested in just increasing their numbers, while others really want people who appreciate their blog and want to keep up with their posts. So, there are two separate blog hop linkies. 

The third linky is for you to link up your giveaways.
If you are interested in increasing the number of followers to your blog via GFC, Linky Followers, email, Twitter, Facebook or Google+ link up here. We will follow you back if you follow us (just note which one you are linking to):
Tots and Me
If you are interested in gaining followers to your blog who will read and comment and truly find an interest in your blog, link up here:
Tots and Me
If you have family friendly giveaways to link up, here’s your spot. Please make sure to include an end date for your giveaway.
Tots and Me

We are so glad you stopped by. Please leave a comment if you link up and we will be sure to stop by and follow back.

Have a Great Weekend!

    Congratulations on being featured, Mary. That is a wonderful honor! I love how good all the buildings look where you grew up. Time has been good to them and they have been well taken care of. Our old farmhouse was burned down and the barns taken down. It was hard to go back and see that when my brother died last February. It's wonderful that your old stomping grounds are well maintainted. xo Diana
