Wake up! Wake up! September has ended and October is here. (I’m referring to the song “Wake Me Up When September Ends“). Seemed like a fitting theme song for this week’s Bloggy Brunch!

Speaking of themes, we’ll be talking about all things organization at this week’s Twitter chat since the first week of October is Get Organized Week. (See you at 2pm EST with the hashtag #bloggybrunch! P.S. I might have something extra special for participants this week!)

As I mentioned above, September is over. That means it’s time to feature our Best of September! We’ll start with the posts that received this award before moving on to the link up for this week!

P.S. I hope we see you at the Twitter chat today! I’ve got a special freebie for everyone who shows up!


I enjoyed this post from Sweetly Sparta. It reminded me that I’m still working on my blog when I’m playing on Pinterest and Twitter from my bed! I recommend checking out her tips of little things you can do all the time to grow your blog!


I’ve been wanting popcorn lately and wine is one of the things this pregnant girl is missing so this post from Sunshine and Elephants grabbed my attention right away! I love the fun pairing guide that she includes in her post along with the fun photos of wine and popcorn together!


Gift giving season is right around the corner, which makes this post from 3 Winks Writes absolutely perfect! She shares a simple way to make great, budget friendly gifts for friends and family! I’ll certainly be using her tip in the future!

There you have it folks – just a few of my top picks for the month of September! If you were chosen, don’t forget to grab your award graphic below to share on social media and your blog!

Don’t forget to link up ONE favorite post this week for your chance to be featured in a future post! And please join us at 2pm on Twitter!
I’ll be sharing the link for this nifty printable at the end of the chat! (I recommend checking the hashtag #bloggybrunch on Sunday to get it!)
