Hookin’ Up with HoH #165 THE FINAL PARTY

Shall we start this post out with a little Theory of a Dead Man? I think we shall... "It's the end of the summer. It's the end of it all! Those days are gone, it's over now, we're moving on." This is it. The last Hookin' Up with HoH weekly link party. It's been a fun 165 weeks, but all good things must come to an end. Fortunately for y'all, I'm even more dedicated to the blog than ever so stick around for lots new material - just no more linky parties. I've got a new fixer-upper house, a new lease on life, and a new attitude! I'll admit, part of me is relieved; part of me is crying. … [Read more...]

Hookin Up with HoH #164 (+ good news and bad news)

Good news and Bad news. I'll start with the bad news. Everyone likes getting the good stuff at the end. ;) The Hookin' Up with HoH link party is going kaput. Donzo. Bye-bye. Outta here. This week will be the last weekly Hookin' Up with HoH party House of Hepworths will ever host. Sniff. Next week I'll have one last party (let's end on a good number like 165) to share all the features, but at the end of the features there won't be any party to link to. The good news? You can link up all your awesome posts to the group Pinterest board I created last week to replace the link party. … [Read more...]

Hookin Up with HoH #161

TV confession time! Okay, I probably should never admit this out loud, especially online, but I am totally obsessed with the trashy "reality" show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. My sister got me hooked a few weeks ago after watching reruns on Netflix. I just can't stop watching this train wreck. It's trashy TV at its finest, for sure. So, do tell! What TV shows do you watch that you are too embarrassed to admit to anyone? And guys... let's keep this PG-13 rated. ;) ** So, are you new here? I throw the Hookin' Up with HoH Party every week to give all of you a chance to find other awesome … [Read more...]

Hookin Up with HoH #159

I'm frantically washing loads of laundry and trying to pack for the Haven Blog Conference this weekend. As usual, I wait until the last minute to pack (I loathe packing). Anyone else gonna be at Haven? Also, as usual, I won't be posting about the conference on my blog (too many people get annoyed with blog conference recap posts) so if you are curious about all the Haven happenings you can follow along on my instagram feed here (or just look me up - houseofhepworths). ** So, are you new here? I throw the Hookin' Up with HoH Party every week to give all of you a chance to find other … [Read more...]
