  1. Hello! I visited two blogs this morning :)

    The first was O. is Me. Her most recent post just grabbed my attention. It's about choosing to celebrate something you would normally do. Don't we all just need to have a different frame of thought-even about the mundane things in life? I think so!

    The second blog I visited was Acting Balanced. I loved her photos of little Liam! He's having a birthday soon and she was reminiscing of how he's grown. I know I do that all the time!

  2. Fate of Amber was great because I enjoy how candid she was about her life. Also the pics of her son were so cute!

    O is Me was especially inspirational because her most recent post was similar to some thoughts I'd been having about Labor Day Weekend. I really enjoyed her take!

  3. I stopped by Acting Balanced, and got a great recipie for stuffed peppers! yay! So excited to try it out!

    Then I went by Today's Gift. Super cute background, just my style. Glad I went over there!


  4. KEEPING UP WITH Courtney: cute blog! I got to enjoy her latest camping adventure and it really inspired me to get out there and become one with nature with my friends. I think it would be a blessing and it seems like the type of memory we were all meant to make. She is cute as a button and I think everyone should stop by and take a gander.

    ACTING BALANCED: First off, the adorable pictures of her son made me giggle. He has the cutest little man face. I really liked the first cupcake pictures. ha ha. He looks like he is quite intelligent too with the way he looks at the camera. I really enjoyed looking over some of the other posts on her page! Go take a peek and see for yourself!!

    All in all, a lovely start to my LABOR DAY Monday. I am off to celebrate a friend's 21st birthday at KETCHUP in LA. Yay for expensive dining!. lol


  5. I love this idea of Mingle Monday, its so great to get out there and read some great blogs. The first blog I stoped at today was...
    Six and Oh... I have to say I love her must have mondays! They are fun reads, and its a creative idea! Her blog is a very fun read. Stop by if you have a chance!

    The second blog I visited today was I dream loudly... This blog is a fun mix of daily life. Lots of random post about the goings on in her life. This is another one not to miss!

  6. I visited THE FATE OF AMBER and loved reading about her fall plans with her and her son (pumpkin picking!) and totally related to not being a "school person" with her.

    I also visited KEEPING UP WITH COURTNEY. Her layout is adorable and loved her most recent post about her BBQ in a canyon!

    Here is the link to my post -

  7. Hello Miss Meg! Posted mingle monday in my blog today! Woohoo!

    I visited I dream loudly and Theresa and enjoyed them both!

    LOVED the page in I dream loudly about her hubs and dog. Adorable :)

    So jealous that Theresa just got a brand new camera because she outgrew her old one! I'm still trying to learn how to use mine!

  8. Well Ms. Meg, kudos on the Mingle Monday idea! It's so overwhelming when you're starting out to find blogs that can inspire you, and this is a great idea on how to whittle them down a little.

    Color Me Neurotic is an honest and frank blog that has enough humour woven throughout to get me hooked right away. It's always about how you handle yourself when the going gets a little tough, and this gal seems to handle her hurdles with thoughtfulness and grace.

    The Fate of Amber seems to have a similar vibe, which works out because that's what I'm looking for! Of course, Amber's a mother, which gives her the added bonus of getting to brag about her cute little son!

    And Meg, your pumpkin cupcakes are going to be the dessert for our Thanksgiving supper - so thanks for that as well!

  9. I visited This Life of Ours and LOVED her blog layout and their cute house! I can't wait to start following their story!

    I also visited Life's Experiences and saw she recently got engaged! I love love love weddings (as you know) and I'm so happy for her! :)

  10. Hi! I visited Luckiest in Love (and Lucky in Love) blog and I love the newlywed, first house and puppy focus. I also loved the wedding blog! So cute.

    I also love This Life of Ours because I am, certifiably, a crazy dog lady myself. Also, such cute posts about travel and life in general.

    Thanks for such a cute Monday idea Meg (also a fab blog! I look forward to reading more!)

  11. Apparently, I use "cute" a lot. Sorry!

  12. I visited: Simple Little Joys and I like the title of her blog and it definitely looks like she had fun in MS.

    I also visited: The Luckiest in Love. She has a fun background and adorable puppy pictures!


  13. Hi everyone! Lovin' Mingle Monday!

    I just checked out Color Me Neurotic and found it to be very entertaining. Seems to be my kind of gal. Definitely liked the Get to Know You Sunday. What a great idea!

    I also just finished up perusing Well, Shut the Door. Shots out to our neighbors to the north! I can relate to Twitter Twatter as I too am enthralled with the amazement that is social networking. You're on your way to a career in writing, Girl!

  15. aaaargh! I'm so late to this. Was so busy yesterday I forgot what day it was.....just off to mingle....back later! If I bring a bottle of wine can my tardiness be forgiven?

  16. So, I think I'm running behind in general this it's a good thing that Mingle Monday runs until Wednesday! :)
    This week I checked out:
    *Life's Experiences: adorable blog with great photos of her new fiance (Congrats!) and life with friends and family.
    *The Amateur Wife: so cute and funny! She had her husband be the guest blogger on her most recent post--great idea!

  17. Happy Tuesday! I hope you (and everyone reading this) had a fantabulous log weekend! Today I checked out...

    -Well, Shut the Front Door : loved, loved the humor. So funny! I agree with all her thoughts on the ludicrousness that is Heidi Montag, Supermarket Sweep and expecially Tyler Perry! Giggles!
    -The Amateur wife: super cute idea to have the husband guest post, definitely a new take on the new wife/homemaker blog. Loved!

    I plugged mingle Monday Here:

  18. Hi there. My friend Lindsey (The Amateur Wife) told me I had to come by and sign up for Mingle Monday. I LOVE IT!! I'm super excited!

    I started by reading The Luckiest in Love (and Lucky in Love). First of all, her pup is super cute! And I love reading about being a newlywed (since I am a newly wed myself!) It is a really cute blog I am looking forward to reading again.

    I also read Northwest Betty. I love to cook and love blogs about cooking, so I was SUPER excited to see the most recent post is how to roast a chicken. Love her blog and love her dog!

  19. i read color me neurotic and loved the layout and hilarious stories!

    i also read poodleism and saw some great halloween pictures!

  20. I read Well, Shut the Front door and Keeping up with Courtney. Both are such CUTE blogs! I love Keeping Up with Courtney's layout...definitely the first thing that hooked me! And Shut the Front door is HILARIOUS! Can't wait to keep reading both of them! Happy Mingling!
