Welcome to a new week of Motivation Monday! Last week, 171 links were shared at Motivation Monday. That’s pretty amazing.

We’ve got all kinds of ideas for you this week including:

  • Chicken Pineapple Kabobs
  • and Mom, Your Wrinkles Matter

Motivation Monday is all about inspirational posts, healthy recipes, crafts, organizing tips, and home decorating ideas. Be sure to check out all the great tips and share your favorites.

Thanks to 8 hosts, your links will be shown to thousands of readers looking for recipes for summer, ways to be a better mom, and fun crafts to do with their kids.

My Favorite Pick of the Party

Your Fall Garden: Make a Hoop House to Extend Your Growing Season

Your Fall Garden: Make a Hoop House to Extend Your Growing Season | The Homesteading Hippy

Did you know you can extend your fall growing season with a hoop house? A hoop house keeps the area around cool weather crops warmer and helps protect them early frosts. Fortunately, it doesn’t cost much to make the hoop house; you could probably put it together in one afternoon.

Thanks for hosting! I’m sharing my light and refreshing allergy-free Frozen Sangria Lemonade and Summer Drinks that beat the Summer heat. I’m also sharing my remarkable discovery about Astaxanthin and how it saved me from a bad sunburn on vacation.

I would LOVE to have a hoop house! I’m hoping to get some kind of a garden in this fall.

Thanks for hosting!

Good luck! I’d love to hear how you do.


Astrid August 18, 2014 at 8:25 am

Just discovered your linky and love it. Unfortunately, my Internet is acting up so I get the inlinkz forwarder and then get a blank page. I will attempt to look at some of these posts.

Finally got over here! I linked up a dessert before I remembered it as supposed to be healthy, so we are going to pretend that oatmeal and peanut butter make it healthy! Followed the co-hosts on G+. Thanks!

LOL I’ll send the link up police after you with a wet noodle! Glad to see you here!


Jennifer Houghton August 18, 2014 at 2:40 pm

Thanks so much for featuring Arugula! Later today I’ll post about Kale. Greens are awesome!

FYI: the links to Katie’s FB and G+ pages listed above actually link to Marie’s pages. I was a bit confused for a minute there.
