Saturday Happenings at The Southern Institute.

Hey there everyone!  it’s Saturday… I’m relieved to be having a relaxed day with the family, whereas last Saturday I was at Bloggy Boot Camp cramming my brain with information (totally worth it by the way!).  Nothing beats being with your family though, does it?  As we head into the holidays and things get busier and busier, I just want to enjoy these laid back days together.  I hope you’re enjoying yours!

Today I’m posting over at Together in 10!  Incase you missed my tweets and updates, Together in 10 is a new stye blog for moms, and it’s great!  I know a lot of you are like me.  Maybe you’re a busy mom who feels like you don’t have a lot of time to commit to your appearance each day… we are right there with you!  Come by Together in 10 and subscribe in your reader.  We’ll be posting real life/real easy tips about how you can be your best self in the precious time that you have.  This is fun for me because I’ve kind of missed these types of posts.  If you’ve been reading The Southern Institute for awhile you might remember me linking up with What I Wore Wednesday.  It’s been awhile since I did that.  Taking photos of what I was wearing every day was a bit much for me (and for you to see I’m sure), so this is my new outlet!  Today I’m sharing what I wore for a Girls’ Night Out with my BFF.

I have another bit of exciting news to share with you-blog related.  The Southern Institute has been chosen out of 200,000 other blogs to be one of the featured blogs at’s new DIY channel!  You all have to check this out.  Shareaholic Channels are topic-based collections of content created just for you.

Are you looking for a great recipe?  First come to The Southern Institute, then if you can’t find what you’re looking for go to the Food Channel at Shareaholic and browse around.  See something that looks delicious?  Click over and see that post!  Same with DIY, Fashion and Beauty, and Fitness.  The content is always being updated.  I’m super excited and honored to be included, along with Lisa Leonard, Fireflies and Jellybeans, Crafting Mom, Oopsey Daisy, and several others, in Shareaholics new DIY channel.

Thanks for coming by everyone!  I hope you have a lovely Saturday.  Don’t forget to come back tomorrow night and link up your projects with the Creative Me Linky Party!
