Happy Thursday! It’s time for the I’m Lovin’ It linky party, I host at the end of each week to celebrate things that makes us happy….things we are loving! You’re invited to share what YOU’VE been up to this week. If you are new here, WELCOME!! I’m so excited you’ve take the time to stop by and share some of your great ideas with us!

Can you believe 2014 is now half over! Summer is in full swing, and we’ve been blessed with some incredibly beautiful weather the last few days here in St. Louis.  High’s in the 70’s, when we are used to 90’s+ by this time of year.  I think we managed to bring a little Southern California weather home with us!  The weather was perfect timing since we’ve spent the last 2 days staining our deck.  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my husband’s Deck Staining Dancing 😉

Next week will be a busy week here on TidyMom!  There’s a lot of fun coming your way……. I will kick of the week with one of the BEST salads I’ve made or eaten in a LONG time!  It’s like summer on a fork! Wednesday morning check as I participate in 101+ Birthday Gift Ideas for your Friends with 100 other bloggers! You’ll be amazed at all the diy birthday gift ideas!!  Then we will wrap up the final week of Spark Your Summer and on Thursday I’ll host a Spark Your Summer edition of I’m Lovin’ It.  Be sure to check in that morning for a few summer giveaways, then come back in the evening to link up your summer posts!!  WHEW!! I told you it will be a busy week!
