Welcome to the fifth week of Our Weekend Happy. The brand new linky that I host with the gorgeous Lisa from Mummascribbles. Thank you to everyone who linked up last week. It was lovely to read your happy weekend posts.
I can’t believe that Lisa and I have been running this linky and the #ourweekendhappy Instagram community for over a month. I really am so pleased that Lisa and I decided to take the plunge and run this linky. The posts we get linking up each week are fabulous.
Our Weekend Happy Linky
Lisa originally created Our Weekend Happy and then I started joining in at the beginning of this year. And it is such a lovely post to write. It is all about capturing memories. And after all, isn’t that why most of us blog?!
Essentially it is a write up of all the lovely moments from the weekend. Time can pass so quickly and often you forget the fun and happiness that can be had from visiting a park or playing games with your kids. Our Weekend Happy is an opportunity to record those happy moments.
We’ve decided to create a linky where we can all share these happy weekends. And we would love you to join us. So please link up any blogs and vlogs about your weekends. You don’t have to call them Our Weekend Happy or follow the same format as Lisa and I. However, if they could be happy and fun posts then that would make me… well… happy!
We want to keep the rules pretty simple but we also want to make sure that every person who links up will benefit from joining the linky. So here we go:
1. Link one post per week
2. You can link up a blog post or a vlog but it has to be about your weekend. And we would love it if it is a happy post.
3. Please comment on both the hosts’ posts and the post directly before yours. Of course, if any other blogs or vlogs take your fancy then please give them some love. Please, can you mark your comments with #ourweekendhappy so we know that you are commenting from this linky.
4. Pop our badge on your post. You can find the HTML for this at the bottom of this post. (We’ve had a few problems with the badge not working. So I’ve changed the code. Hopefully, it will have solved the problems).
Every week, Lisa and I will be commenting on and sharing all blogs and vlogs that link up. Also, please remember to tag us on twitter and we’ll give you an RT.
The linky will be open every Wednesday at 06:00 and will close on Sunday at 23.55. So you have plenty of time to link up your happy weekend blog posts or videos.
#Ourweekendhappy Instagram community
Lisa and I have also created an Instagram community for any photos from your weekend. If you include the hashtag #ourweekendhappy then we will like and comment on all the hashtagged photos. Then at the end of every month, we will produce a roundup of all our favourite photos from the previous month.
As it’s the end of February, it is time to share my favourite photos from the #ourweekendhappy Instagram Community. I’m also planning to reshare them on my Instagram page too. So if you don’t already follow me on Instagram then do pop over to take a look. You can find me at @mrs_hs_fav_things.
#ourweekendhappy Instagram Community – February 2018 Favourites
I thought that I would first share my favourite photos that Lisa and I linked up to #ourweekendhappy during February. So my favourite photo from Lisa is this gorgeous photo of her and her boys. It is such a happy photograph filled with smiles and love. And her boys are super cute.
The favourite photo that I shared on #ourweekendhappy during February was this picture of the children on the beach at Bexhill-on-Sea. We spent one Sunday taking a trip to the seaside. And it was such a perfect day. The sky was blue, the sun shone and everyone was happy. (Although, I do realise that Little Miss H and Little Mister do actually look miserable in this photograph).
#OurWeekendHappy February Favourites
For my February favourites, I’ve chosen four photographs that are filled with cheeky and happy smiles because I think that they sum up #ourweekendhappy perfectly.
The first photo that I’m featuring as a February favourite from Sarah at Toby Goes Bananas (@tobygoesbananas). I really like the picture frame in this photo and the smiling faces peeking out of it.
This photo from Jules at Pondering Parenthood (@ponderingparenthood)is gorgeous. I just love the way the light falls on M’s beautiful face.
This photo is by Amanda a.k.a Mrs Warburton (@mrsawarburton). How can you resist those curls and that face? And I want that cardigan for Little Mister H.
The last of my #ourweekendhappy favourites from February comes from Louise at Tattooed Lady with a Baby (@tattooedmumsy95). I had to include this photograph in my roundup. That smile. That t-shirt. It is a perfect #ourweekendhappy photograph.
We would love you to join us and start using the hashtag #ourweekendhappy. It would also be great if you could give some love to anyone else who uses the hashtag. Hopefully, we can create a lovely community of people sharing happy photos from their weekend.
And that’s it! We can’t wait to read all your happy posts and watch your videos. I’m really looking forward to sharing the happy moments from our weekend with you.
