Welcome to the fifty-fifth weekend of Lovin' the Weekend Blog Hops.
We are officially in the second year!

To celebrate this wonderful occasion, we've decided to add a second permanent co-host! If you are looking to help increase your blog visitors and are committed to helping spread the word please fill out the form below.

Thank you to every one who has stopped by, whether this is your first visit or you have been a faithful ongoing participant!

First things first:
Please don't forget to check out my co-host's blog:
Adventures of the Mommy Homemaker

 We also randomly choose a Featured host each week from the Lovin' The Readers linky. This week we are featuring Summer from  Capturing Memories One Snap at a Time.

Capturing Memories One Snap at a Time

Her blog is quite new and I'm sure she would love some followers. Here's what she has to say:
"I'm still very new to blogging.  I started in late August of this year. At first I started my blog about my family as a way to let other family members keep up with everything going on around the Perdew house. But very quickly I changed and decided I would use it to shares things I enjoy like photos, recipes and ideas. As well as things that make me laugh and have just started thinking of adding reviews and/or comparisons. I enjoy meeting new friends and hearing positive feedback on my posts. It's nice to hear that others enjoy or share the same ideas as I do."

Please take the time to check out her blog, let her know you are visiting from the Lovin' The Weekend Blog Hops. 
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. I would appreciate it if you would follow myself, my co-host and my Featured Host via GFC. If you no longer have GFC please follow in some other way. After that there are three different linkys 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 my sidebar). I'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. I'd love to meet some new friends this weekend.  

I have noticed that 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, I decided to create two separate linkys. 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. I will follow you back if you follow me (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:

If you have family friendly giveaways to link up, here's your spot. Please make sure to include an end date for your giveaway.

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

Sunday Social

1. Favorite childhood book:
 I remember reading and rereading these two books many many times as a child and then reading them to my children because I liked them so much

2 . Favorite Book lately: 
I actually saw the movie before reading the book. I did love the movie and as always both had different parts but I will say I did enjoy the book more.

3. Book you wish you could live in:
Most books I enjoy reading are true crime or horror. I don't think that I would want to live in any of them unless I were someone not involved in the crimes. But if I had to choose one I guess maybe I would choose to live in the book the green mile.

4. If you could be any character from a book who would it be and why?
I would like to be  Clarice Starling  in the Silence of the Lambs because I have always dreamed of being a detective  and she was one tough and intelligent gal.

5. Favorite Book turned Movie?
Again the book has it's differences but I love the movie!!

6. Favorite Magazines:
Wired, Parenting, Entertainment weekly,  Newsweek, EveryDay with Rachael Ray, and cosmopolitan magazine.
