Friday Frivolity - Library Edition

It's time for this week's edition of Friday Frivolity - the blog party for all things fun, funny, hopeful & happy!

Just wait until you see what we dug up for this week's theme...

At last week's partywe traveled to Germany for some Oktoberfest fun.

This week brings us Libraries Day, so we're talking about one of my favorite things: books, books, books!

It's no secret that we love the library around here and I've even shared all sorts of library tips with you, like:

15 Reasons to LOVE the Library!

Library Resources for Preschoolers

I've even extolled the benefits of the library on other blogs, as well:

The Bountiful Benefits of the Library for Preschoolers

You can pretty much find library books all around our house -- our library system allows each card a limit of 50 items which can be checked out at one time and we're always maxed out.

That means we have 150 videos, CDs, picture books, textbooks, research books and books-for-fun scattered throughout the joint. (No wonder it's always a mess around here!)

Not to mention all the books I have on my Nook. (I think that limit is 20...)

So here's my question to you today: how many library items are sitting around your home right now?

Now time for the new stuff!

The featured post for Syncopated Mama this week is........

BBQ Spaghetti by the Bearded Hiker! For the second week in a row, I hung out in Jaxx's kitchen. Not only does this recipe sound fabulous, but I am totally intrigued by the fact that he makes his own backpacking food in his food dehydrator -- why have I never thought of that??

I might just have to dig out my fruit leather tray and try this out for our next trip out in the woods!
