waiting on...Wednesday {link-up #16}

While I'm Waiting...Waiting on...Wednesday link up
Welcome back to the Waiting on...Wednesday link-up - a place where you can link up what you are waiting on, going through, making, anything - as long as it's family-friendly!  :)  After you link up, please make sure to read a few others - and don't forget to tell them you found them at Waiting on...Wednesday!  

Before we start the link party, I would love for you to visit my summer service challenge - Summer of Service!  A weekly challenge that you can complete on your own or with your kiddos.  This week focuses on the power of our words.

And now to the party!!!  Week in and week out you guys inspire, encourage, and WOW me with your posts!  You guys are awesome!  Lots of returnees (thank you!) and some new faces too.  Welcome!!!  I'm so glad you're here!

Here are this weeks FEATURES!  Be sure to check them out - you won't be disappointed!
Waiting on...Wednesday: week 15 FEATURES
All featured posts are pinned to the link-up party FEATURES board!  Follow along and you'll get a sneak peak of who the features are each week! :)
Follow Holly @ While I'm Waiting...'s board While I'm Waiting - Waiting on...Wednesday link-up party FEATURES! on Pinterest.

If you were featured, don't forget to grab the FEATURE button and show off your awesome post!

Just a few things to remember about the link-up:
*All topics are welcome - as long as they are created or written by you and are family friendly!  Old posts - new posts... it's up to you!  Please link to your specific post URL and not to your blog home page.
*You can link up to three posts/blog.
*Please place a link back to this link-up in either your post or on your party page so that others can link up too.
*It's a party, try to visit at least 2 other posts and show them some love!  This is the fun part!  Be inspired, inspire someone else - don't just link and run!  Leave comments (and tell them you found them on Waiting on...Wednesday!), share and pin their posts - you know, show some love!
*Each week I'll choose a few posts to feature at the next link party.  I'll also pin the featured posts to the While I'm Waiting - Waiting on...Wednesday link-up party FEATURES Pinterest board.
*If you would like to follow me, that would be awesome but it's not required.

While I'm Waiting... can be found on:

What am I waiting on?  I can't wait to see Hope tomorrow!!!  She has been at my parent's house since last Sunday.  That was over 10 days ago!!!  We talk to her multiple times a day on the phone and my mom texts me pictures but it's just not the same!  I'm missing my shadow!!!

I can't wait to have those little arms wrapped around my neck!!!

Special thanks to my parents for treating Hope like a princess while she's been with them! I'm sure their house will be uber quiet once she comes home!  She's a bit of a chatterbox!  :)

I'm so glad you stopped by!

Thanks for linking up!  Have a blessed day!  Gig 'em and God bless!
Holly

  1. I have Hannah all week. Last week I had Eli. The best part of grandparenting is that we can have our babies one-on-one and spoil them. I'm sure Hope missed you all too. Great memories for her for sure.

    1. It's been so much fun for her! She LOVES being "the baby" but I really think she enjoyed being an only child too! :) Lots of undivided attention - actually that's not far off from her being here but at my parents she didn't have to share the attention! ;) I can't wait to see her!!!

  3. I totally get it! My daughters have been at grandma and grandpa's house since last Saturday for a two week stay! It's been nice to have some time to get things done but I really do miss those cuties!

    Thanks for hosting a great party!

  7. I bet your parents are over the moon! I don't get my granddaughter overnight just yet, but we live in the same city so I see her as often as I want :) Hope is gorgeous, just like her mommy and I love your new profile picture. Thanks for hosting, Holly! Enjoy extra cuddle time with Hope when she comes back!

  10. When I read this post, it reminded me of a saying that I've seen a time or two. The most precious jewels we will ever wear are our children's arms around our neck. Glad to link up with you again.

  13. Thanks for hosting the link up. All of the grandparents live far (very far) from us and our little one, so it's definitely something we wish was different! Great pictures too!

    1. You are very welcome! I also know about grandparents living far away. My hubby's parents live in CA and we only see them once a year or so. Makes it tough but you also appreciate the time you have with them just a little more. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great week!
