  1. Wow! I'm the first one?! Here goes! :)

    First, I visited A Single Girl in the City: I've been to this blog before & I've always thought it was so cute! Her latest post is so true: we all want more followers. {Isn't that why I'm doing THIS?! Oh yes!}

    Second, I visited The Princess Diaries: Wow, these two blogs have the same background! The nerd in me notices these things :)

  2. I visited Amanda and Don and I loved her blog layout and all of the pictures of her and her hubby! They're adorable!

    I also visited Poodleism and I thought her most recent post was hilarious! Her commentary is so funny and spot on.

  3. Hello from a new follower!

  4. Happy MOnday all! Today I visited...

    - Amanda & Don: honest, funny, great travel stories. Love it! She's great at writing about things that she's working on toughing out, but still is happy/upbeat!

    - Life of Leetid: sexy men + precious, cute furry things = recipe for success in my book! Love the quick-hitting posts, too!

    Have a super week, all!

  5. Hello and happy Monday. Where did the weekend go?!

    First, I'd like to say that I posted about Mingle Monday on my blog here,, so hopefully it brings some more people to the party.

    Second, I'd like to say that I found two awesome new blogs to read and I'm very excited. I visited:

    ~Kimchee Chronicles: I love that her blog is about a bunch of different things; fashion, books, exercise, cooking, etc etc. She writes very well and includes some great pictures in her blogs to spice things up.

    ~Faye'sbook: A girl after my own heart, she doesn't care if she's Shakespeare but will tell you her opinion and her experiences as true as can be. She's fun and I love her blog.

  6. According to The Kimchee Chronicles, the Shake Weight really works, and not just as teh inspiration for a really good SNL spoof.

    Faye's Book's current blog describes why I always pay attention to road signs while driving. Well, usually.

  7. Hey!

    First I visited Amanda and Don. I totally feel for her right now. My brother is stationed in Germany away from all family and friends and it can definitely be difficult. I hope she hangs in there!!

    Second I visited Poodleism. She really makes me laugh. All of her posts have such a great flare to them. I will definitely stop back by.

    I made a comment about your Mingle Monday on my post today...I will be back next week. Thanks!!!
