The Blended Blog Loves - August 11th

August 11, 2017, by My New Happy

Howdy, howdy, and happy Friday!  It's Lana from My New Happy, and I'm so glad the weekend is in sight.  The days after a vacation just seem to drag on, don't they?

The good news is, we made it, and today I'm sharing some favorites from the week.

  • I'm kind of a weather/astronomy geek.  This weekend is the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower, and on August 21st there will be a total solar eclipse.  This graphic from is super cool.  You put in your zip code, and it shows you what the eclipse will look like at your house, and what time to watch.
  • I love this back to school outfit that Deena shared.  I have absolutely no reason to put together anything for back to school, but now I want to.

  • Lisa from Coast To Coast made this delicious looking Corn and Crab Chowder.  The perfect dish for an end of summer party?

  • Thomas goes back to college in ten days.  Where did the summer go?  Everyone says the second year is easier, but so far, I don't agree.  I just read Release my grip. A mother's prayer for college drop off, and it's pretty much perfect.  Bring kleenex.
  • I've got a new blogging friend, and you all should know about her too.  I met Dawn from Party Til Dawn in March at a Seattle blogger event, and we clicked right away. We had lunch on Thursday, and before I knew it, two hours had gone by.  She's sweet, creative, and stylish, and so is her blog!  Go check her out.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!  Be sure to come back on Monday for our Summer Time Fun series - we're sharing our summertime guilty pleasures!
