Welcome to Week 42 of The Cowgirl Up! Link Party!

Welcome to Week 42
The Cowgirl Up! Link Party!

1 Party, 4 Blogs  
Your Host this week is . . .
This past weekend, we had our family photos taken for our Christmas cards.  I went with a "Super Hero" theme this year.  We did the photos in our backyard and kept things real simple and light.  My kids don't usually do well posing for photos, so this was definitely easier on them.  We had such a great time!

Have you started preparing for the holidays?  They are just around the corner!  This weekend, my design business, High Fire Designs, will be setting up Christmas decor for The Hampton Suites in Mesquite . . . that's right!  I am decorating a HOTEL!  So excited to show you all the photos of all SEVEN of the fabulous tress that we will be decking out.

If you missed my post, . . . Vroom, Vroom Toddler Room . . . be sure to stop by and check it out!

Here what's NEW with Cowgirl UP!

We are moving up our party time by a few hours. Instead of beginning on Monday nights at 8:30 pm, we will now go live at 5 pm.

Starting in December, we’ll select a new to guest host for Cowgirl Up each week.
Now here comes the best part, it could be YOU!
If you are selected, you will be introduced in the Cowgirl Up post for that week, and we'll include a link to your blog. We’ll send you the code for the party ahead of time, so that’s a post you don’t have to write! Lots of fantastic exposure for you, and the post is written for you, how cool is that? 
Are you interested yet? I sure hope so, because we’re going to need 52 guest hosts each year.

On to this week's features!

Now about the party...

You link up on my blog and your link shows up on four blogs.
More exposure, less time.
We are looking for the latest and greatest projects, tutorials, ideas, crafts, recipes, decor, and inspiring stories. Anything that you are proud to show off.
Cowgirl Up! is the link party that saves you time and brings you inspiration. 
What blogs will your link appear on? Check us out below!

Linsey with The Farmhouse Porch
