Welcome to the back to school edition of #FoodieFriDIY!

It’s been an emotional week of ups and downs for me.

As you all know, we dropped my son off at college this last weekend. It feels a little strange around the house without him. I get those blue moments when I feel teary eyed that he’s not here. And my younger son had already moved into his brother’s room by the time we got back. Good thing his older brother is pretty mellow about it. When I told him, his reaction was one of surprise…not that his brother had done it, but that he’d done it practically as soon as he left the house. LOL

The younger two went back to school on Monday, and I now have two high schoolers! Where does the time go? At any rate, with sports starting and our weeknights about to start getting really busy, I’ll be getting into speed dinner mode here shortly and hopefully sharing some new fast and easy recipes with you all soon. 

Since I have back to school on my mind, that’s what I focused on for this week’s features. From breakfast, lunch, and dinner to mason jar teacher’s gifts, there are some great recipes and ideas here that you are going to love!

Each of my features is pinned at least 3 different group boards, yummed if a recipe, clipped to Hometalk if a DIY, stumbled, and shared on my Facebook page. I try to share in other ways as well. Whether you are featured or not, I try to share as many of your links as possible, but I like to give a little “special” treatment to my features!

Back to School Edition, #FoodieFriDIY

Ready for the party?

We’re not really a rules-type party. But here’s what we do ask. 

1. Link up your favorite recipes and projects from your own blog. Roundups are fine as long as they include links to the recipes or DIY projects. Please DO NOT link a post without a recipe, project, craft, or tutorial.

2. We’d be truly grateful if you shared our party to other food and DIY blog friends so others can join in the fun! Tweet us. Share us on Facebook (the party should be pinned at the top on my Facebook page for Thursday evening and most of the day Friday, if you’d like to share from there). However you can help us spread the word, we appreciate!

[Tweet “Increase your traffic – come party at #FoodieFriDIY! @dishofdailylife loves to SHARE!”]

3. It’s not a requirement of course, but if you can, try to visit another link or two and leave a thoughtful comment. Give someone a shout out on social media. Use the hashtag #FoodieFriDIY…we’re trying to grow a community for all of us, and it’s always nice to make new friends.

4. We’d love it if you’d follow your party hosts on Pinterest. 

Don’t forget after you get done linking up to drop by my Facebook page and share your favorite recipes or DIY project that you have linked up…I will make sure to show your post some love on some form of social media! Please be sure to share either the link or the number in the link up so it’s easy for me to find it. 

And now for the party!

Hey Michelle! This must be the year for college freshmen. I know so many moms who sent their kids off to college recently. And it didn't matter if it was their first time doing it or the second go 'round, they still got weepy over it. Sigh. I have 10 more years to go with mine. Kudos to your younger son for staking his claim. LOL Thanks for hosting!

I definitely know how your feeling. When my son went to college I cried every day for a week. :( I shared my post about preparing college care packages :) and another one for a quick appetizer recipe. Hugs.
