Much Ado About Monday {no. 86}

Welcome y'all to another 
Much Ado About Monday link party!

Things are finally starting to feel like winter here in Houston, thank goodness. I was getting so tired of wearing our summer clothes and couldn't wait to break out all our cozy sweaters and leggings. Plus, it's really hard to decorate for fall when it's 90 degrees outside, never mind decorating for Christmas. Looks like it cooled down just in time.

But we didn't let the winter weather deter us from hitting up the local Renaissance Festival this weekend. The kids all wore multiple layers under their costumes and stayed toasty warm while having a blast. My son {who wore his dragon Halloween costume} ran around roaring at everybody and all the festival-goers bowed down to my daughter in her queen costume. She ate it up. We saw a ton of shows and had a lot fun.

This week, on the blog, I shared the adorable Gloria dress, a simple and cute dress that I was chosen to pattern test. I'm not gonna lie...I already have several more of the dresses planned for my girls.

Our party last week turned up some amazing projects. Thank you to everyone who linked up! Our top 4 picks this week are:

Jamie's Pick: Rustic Log Card Display via Anything and Everything
Jill's Pick: Bumble Bee Crochet Hat via Jenny and Teddy
Emily's Pick: Reese's Frappuccino via Kleinworth & Co.
Lydia's Pick: Pumpkin French Toast Casserole via Makin' It Mo'Betta

Our most viewed link last week was the 5 Minute No-Sew Infinity Scarf by Viva Veltoro.
