Whatever Goes Wednesday #191



Welcome to this crazy day of linky love and blog exploration! I love to see what is new out there in blog land. Get started clicking away to view everyone's creations!

Please stick around and click on at few a links before leaving. Don't be a link-and-run blogger!


OUR SPONSOR!

This week's party is brought to you by two sponsors!!



Baby A and Baby B!!

Now, before all of Michelle's close friends freak out, this isn't Michelle's announcement. This is actually Miranda :) I've been debating about when to spill the beans, but I just couldn't wait any longer! We've waited so long to add to our family (our son is 5), so we're absolutely thrilled (and a little freaked out) with the addition of two more. Hopefully we'll be able to find out at our next appointment if we're having boys or girls - or both!

So, any other moms of twins out there with words of encouragement or support or tips and tricks?!? I'm sure I'll need them all over the next couple of months years.

 

MOST VIEWED LINK LAST WEEK!

 

It All Started With Paint made these spooky Halloween decorations! Aren't these Mason Jar Mummies so cute!?


GIVEAWAY DIRECTORY 
Don't forget to check out the Giveaway Directory tomorrow! It amazes me how few people enter giveaways. This is your chance at free stuff! FYI, this link is only open for two days. If you are going to do a giveaway and want to feature it here, make sure you link it up sometime on Thursday or Friday.



CATEGORICALLY CRAFTING


It's official. Fall is here! Bring on the pumpkins and sweaters! Check out the Fall Categorically Crafting Party for some fall inspiration!

There are so many awesome Halloween crafts floating around in Blogland. Come link up your Halloween crafts, d├ęcor, and food ideas at our Halloween Categorically Crafting Party this Friday!




ON TO THE PARTY!
You know what to do. Enter your project (up to 4 links), tip, idea, recipe, whatever. Visit others. Leave comments. PLEASE NO ETSY SHOPS! Come back again in the next few days as more projects are added throughout the week. Let the fun begin! Because blogging is not my full-time job, I will not be able to visit every link. I apologize for that because I know you all work so hard and take the time to link up here and I appreciate it! Also, we'll be highlighting our favorites throughout the week, so be sure to check back periodically! :)

  4. Thanks so much for the fabulous party! And congrats on your twins, Miranda! I have soon-to-be seven-year-old twin boys. You are going to LOVE it!! You'll be extremely sleep-deprived for the first bit, but you are with any baby. There's nothing quite like twins. It was hardest in the beginning because I wasn't sleeping, but it just gets easier and better as times goes on. They always have a playmate, and it's priceless watching them interact, even from a young age. I'm so, so excited for you!! Enjoy your day!

    1. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind words :) I'm definitely expecting the sleep deprivation. It was pretty rough with our first baby, so I'm having a hard time imagining anything less than no sleep for the next two years, lol. But, I guess if other moms of twins can make it through, so can I! *fingers crossed* :)

  10. I'm a twin momma too! My boys are 4. It will change your life more than you could ever imagine! Just prepare yourself. Its going to be REALLY hard at first! Try to recruit as much help as you can. The good news is, the older they get, the easier they get. Now they are older, its really nice for them to have a playmate. They don't need so much of my attention. Also, I recommend joining the forum on twinstuff.com. It was really helpful to have other MOMs to ask questions. Singleton moms just don't understand sometimes.

    1. I'm excited to see them interacting and playing together as they get older. Thanks for the recommendation of twinstuff.com. I'll definitely have to check the forum out. I can use all the help I can get :)

  11. Congrats - that's so exciting! First piece of advice from a fellow twin-mom: TAKE IT EASY during your pregnancy. I didn't listen to this, and ended up on bedrest for 12 weeks - no fun! So allow yourself a lot of rest and relaxing - you won't get much later :D

    1. Thanks, Danielle! :) I'm trying really hard to remember that and take it easy. Bed rest is NOT on my to do list this pregnancy. It is so much harder making two human beings than making one. I worked in a retail store up until the day before I had my son, but there's no way I could do that this time around. I can barely do all of our laundry in one day now!

  14. Big congrats Miranda!!! I have twin boys that are five now. It was a little crazy at first but I love having twins. Just the fact they have a best friend for their whole life is so cool. I'm so happy for you! :)

  15. Congratulations Miranda!! I was blessed (and surprised!) with twins that were born this June. It's amazing, and fun, and exhausting at the same time. There are some wonderful Twin forums & groups out there. Goggle can be your best friend, or your worst enemy that can stress & freak you out ~ neither of which you want to be =) Being a MoM is an experience that will last a lifetime but bring you double the joy and blessings and happiness that WILL get you through the first 2 months, I promise!!!! =) Marcy @ day2day SuperMom

    1. I try to stay away from Google as much as possible when it comes to medical things. I don't need the worry and stress! Thanks for your words of encouragement :)

  16. Thanks for hosting! I linked up some spray painted candy corn wine bottles. Twins! How exciting! I always thought that would be so fun, but they didn't run in our families.
