Mop It Up Mondays #7

Happy {almost} Monday! Posting a bit early since we're flying out on vacation in just a bit...but didn't want to leave without starting the par-tay! ;)

What a FUN time last week! So happy you're here to join the good times this week.

Below are a few things making my to-do list a bit longer. If you were featured, feel free to grab a button.

There's just so much amazingness going on in this nursery. In the post linked up, Nancy, from Owen's Olivia, gives a great run down of THE PALLET WALL. She did some serious work (and nail-pulling from pallets) to get this gorgeous wall. I totally think it was worth it!

Jessi from Steak 'N Potatoes Kinda Gurl shares a delicious looking recipe for CHOCOLATE BOURBON-SPIKED BANANA BREAD. Can't decide if it was the chocolate, bourbon or banana that sucked me into this recipe. I bet her kitchen smelled amazing while this was in the oven!

Peggy over at PJH Designs gives a wonderful tutorial on INSTALLING AN APRON FRONT SINK into stock cabinetry. She even shows how to reinforce your cabinetry when your gorgeous sink weighs  120 pounds (a problem I truly hope to have one day). Two words: sink envy.

These RAINBOW COOKIES from Crazy for Crust are so sweet. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day. Dorothy gives a great tutorial (with some super fabulous tips) on creating these beauties.

Jessica over at Mom 4 Real gives a great tutorial on this adorable CAMERA STRAP COVER. My camera strap is suddenly very jealous. Aren't those ruffles the most delicious things ever? Love it.

Kelley over at Miss Information Blog is a genius I tell you. She used her slow cooker to make these amazing CROCKPOT LOTION BARS. She even experimented with making a few vanilla ones. This looks fabulous!!

These SHAMROCK CUCUMBER TEA SANDWICHES make me want to throw together a proper little St. Patrick's Day tea party with all the bells and whistles. Lyuba over at Will Cook for Smiles posted a great recipe tutorial on how to put these together. 

Becca, from Crumbs & Chaos, created these scrumptious COOKIES AND CREAM DONUTS. Don't they look awesome? They've made me realize I desperately need a doughnut pan. My hips don't. But my mouth does.


So it's time to get this week's links up and at 'em! 

Would love for you to link up your favorite project, recipe, tip or whatever (it's an anything goes linky party)! The more the merrier: link up as many posts as you like. Let's MOP UP SOME FUN!

While you're here for the party, be sure to check out other's links and become a follower of ishouldbemoppingthefloor, if you like.

The only rule is to please link back...either grab a button or link in your own style.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
