  1. I visited Synfully Delicious and Pink World. Good topic at SD, you should check it out! Also, love Pink's 30 before 30 list!

  2. Yay for Mingle Monday, on Tuesday! I checked out Star's Pink World. Love it! She posted a great recipe for pumpkin spice muffins I think I'll try!

    Also visited Too much to do; So little time. Talk about a cute blog! Love the layout and color scheme!

    Also featured you in my post this week!

  3. I stopped by Star's Pink World and I fell in love before I started reading :) It's pink and black and white and I just squealed from excitement. I love that her blog featured recipes, fun shopping ideas, a weekend wrap up and a ton more!

    I'm not going to be anything for Halloween :( I barely have enough money to get my son a costume let alone think of anything for myself!

    I'll take a peek at a second blog later today!

  4. I also did a post for all the Monday Mingle-ers :)

  5. Oh, I forgot my fun fact: I don't know what I will be for Halloween yet although my daughter wants me to be a ladybug and my husband wants me to be a maid :)

  6. for halloween, I'm thinking Big Bird! I've been checking out all the blogs so far, some of them are already great blogs I've been following! love mingle mondays :)

  7. I visited and loved:
    ♥The Fate of Amber-Super cute blog about her and her son. I am still waiting to find out the story on her TROUBLE undies. I am intrigued!
    ♥A Sorta Fairytale-I adore this blog! I had visited it before and must have forgotten to follow. Mandy's blog is fabulous, and her pup is so cute!!
    Check these out ladies!

  8. I went over to A Sorta Fairytale: She has beautiful pictures!

    I also visited The Fate of Amber. I loved her post of her weekend! It looked like so much fun and they made a delicious looking pie.

    ...and I don't know about that Halloween costume yet. I should probably get on that :)

    Thanks for hosting!

  9. I visited a Juici Life and a sorta fairytale and both blogs were absolutely adorable with their layouts. I loved a sorta fairytale's post about her dog. It'll definitely make you smile :) and a juice life had a post about lazy weekends and needing more caffeine in the bloodstream that I can definitely relate to. I would definitely suggest visiting both for those who have the time.

    As for Halloween costumes, I'm not sure what I'm going to be yet :/ The search continues!

  10. I stopped by:

    Desperately Seeking Starbucks - While reading her most recent posts, I constantly found myself nodding in agreement to everything she said. Plus, great writing! Simple and sleek layout...all the traits of a great blog!

    A Sorta Fairytale - Precious pictures! Can't wait to see more of these photo challenges!

    Blogged about Mingle "Tuesday"!

  11. Hi,

    I stopped by Seeking Starbucks...very cute blog, and great content in her posts.

    I also stopped by Houston her wedding pictures. Cute blog!

  12. I also blogged about Mingle Monday on my post today for a chance to be one of your 3 blogs you pick:

  13. This week I stopped by the following:
    LIFE OF MEG - our host. I love reading Meg’s blog because she lives in my hometown and I sometimes get glimpses of home. :D

    star @ starspinkworld - A twenty-something blogger who is an avid Yankees fan and has some yummy looking recipes posted. I am anxious to try her pumpkin spice muffin recipe. I also see a Twilight Breaking Dawn countdown, so she’s a fan. (shhhh, me, too!!)

    The Fate of Amber - A blog about a 26-year-old mom and her adventures with her son CJ. Who wants to blog, too.

    a sorta fairytale - Cute lifestyle blog with lots of adorable baby (love the eyes!) pictures and her puppy is getting face time. ;)

    Happy Mingling!

  14. Yey, Mingle Monday is back!
    Today I had the chance to visit Fayesbook and found out she is going to Boston for a real vacation (that means not taking her computer with her!).
    Also I visited Inside my Head and found out she is ready to leave on maternity leave and getting her nursery ready.

    For this Halloween I would love to dress as the "Queen of Hearts" in the new Alice in Wonderland movie, but I will be away so I don't think I will get the chance to do it.

  15. I stopped over at Books and Shoes...2 of my favorite things in just the title? Whaaat?! It was love at first sight.

    Keeping up with Courtney: Love this girl's attitude...seems way girly, but still fairly low maintenance. Love it!

  16. Happy Tuesday!

    Today we visited the following two fun sites:
    1. a sorta fairytale ~ too cute! Her photos are wonderful and the layout is beautiful. I also love that she did an entire post dedicated to her dog.

    2. An Ally Abroad ~ her writing style is fun to read and her adventures across the pond are going to be fun to learn more about.

    Also, we dedicated our Monday/Tuesday post to Mingle Mondays regarding how it's free and fabulous fun!

    For me, I think I am going to go as an oven this year for Halloween since I'm six months pregnant. I tried to get my husband to go as a baker, but he's holding out on me...but I'd love to see him in that white puffy hat!

  17. I went and visited life with the edwards. It's still pretty early here in Utah so when I went over to her blog she made me hungry because she had a bowl of yummy pasta. *my fav.*

    She has a way cute blog I can't wait to read more!!

    I don't know what i'm going to be for halloween but James (my boyfriend) told me I should be "Vampire Bella" He has no idea what he is talking about and i'm definitly not going to be a vampire or Bella. haha Maybe i'll be a witch or something. ha

  18. First things first...glad you're ok and that Mingle Monday is here!!

    I checked out Synfully Delicious - she had a great article that really made me think! I enjoyed her layout and pictures as well. Great blog!

    I also checked out Hoiston Hurdles. Her lil sis is getting married and I can relate! She has such an adorable blog and all the nice things about her sister were great to read!

    Check out my blog for a post about Mingle Monday (and Marshmallow Frosting!!)


  19. Oh - and for Halloween, I'm going to be a cupcake...what else would I be?!? lol

  20. Love Mingle Monday! Even if it is on Tuesay!

    I visited Houston Hurdles. Loved her blog!

    I also visited Seeking Starbucks! I can't wait to read more!

  21. Yay another Mingle Monday (ahem...tuesday...) no complaints here.

    I stopped by a Sorta Fairytale and LOVE her style! Beautiful family. I feel like I'm best friends with her little doggy, even via computer (which to me, is enough) :)

    Also visited love like flowers and am trying her recipe! I LOVE finding recipes, especially if they're something someone has actually tried. :)

    Halloween...hmmmmmmmm...never been that creative. One year I was a lumberjack (thank you, college) Another a flapper girl. This year? Trying to convince hubby to be Danny so I can be Sandy (hello poodle skirt!!) we'll see. :)

  22. yeyy, another Mingle Monday~

    First, I visited Poor & Fabulous. What an amazing blog. I love all the things they write about and how friendly and personal their posts feel.

    Second, I visited Stay Calm, Have A Cupcake. She has some amazing cupcake photos, ideas and recipes! I really loved her site.

    This Halloween I probably won't dress up~ -__- I've generally always been a witch loll

  23. PS...Blogged about Mingle Monday! You may or may not get a kick out of my modified title since it's Tuesday:)

  24. Hi Meg... Today I visited Keeping up with Courtney ... she was just featured .. so go on over and give this gal a happy congrats everyone!!! Her corner of blogland is hilariously funny ...

    I also visited the Little King and I ... OMGOsh .. for your dose of cuteness this blog is not to me missed on your visits!!!!

    Happy week everyone... HHL

  25. i visited "love like flowers" where she posted a recipe for thanksgiving in a crock pot. i am SO making it!!

    i also visited "the fate of amber" & she talked about the milestone of now having a kindergartener! both were super cute blogs.

    i am now following your blog too, & will post a "mingle monday" post soon.

    great hop!

  26. Ooops! I forgot ... I haven't decided on Halloween costume, I usually wait until the week of Halloween to decide. :(

  27. Haha looks like we're all forgetting our fun facts! Nothing concrete yet, but seeing as I'm hanging out on my porch and passing out candy, I'm choosing between a granny+rocking chair and sue sylvester of glee.

  28. no dressing up for halloween for me. i'm just not a fan of the holiday, and i am trying not to spend any excess money right now!

    i visited houston hurdles & life with the edwards & creat meaning... loved them all.

  29. Stay Calm, Have A Cupcake has some DELICIOUS recipes...mmm mmmm

    Also, the pumpkin spice muffins at Stars Pink World - I made the same recipe almost a week ago now and they are wonderful! Great minds think alike...

    My halloween costume this year with my husband is contestants on Price is Right - one of us will have a bid 1 dollar over the other!

    Thanks for hosting, nice to stumble upon your blog to follow :)

  30. I visited Create Meaning and I'm pretty sure we are blog soulmates - her posts reminded me so much of mine!

    I also visited HHL in Florida and it looks like she had such a fun weekend :)

    Fun Fact: I have NO IDEA what I'm going as for Halloween! AHH!

    I posted about you!

  31. Visited ...A Good Life and Ben & Carrie Tracks today. Great posts by both. Love the pictures that these guys take. Great job!

    As far as halloween costumes go... if I can find anything that fits this big belly of mine I might consider dressing up, but as for now, this year might be a bust!

  32. I visited a good life, and loved her blog! it was great that the most recent post was all about informing us of some random tidbits about her. She says she isnt photogenic but i think she's super cute!

    I also stopped by Houston Hurdles who, in 6 months, will be going through a life changing experience!

  33. This is my first time participating - such fun!

    I visited Inside My Head - who is expecting a new little bundle of joy very soon! I also checked out Rachel at Simple Little Joys, and I must say, her blog design is SO cute! I love the colors, they totally match her fun personality that exudes from her posts.

    I will definitely be back again next week!

  34. Happy Tuesday!!

    I visited two websites - Stay Calm and Have a Cupcake which I love even just for the title!!! But the blog is gorgeous, and she has marshmallow whip as the feature... EEK. I also visisted Houston Hurdles and I love love LOVE the look of the blog - very stylish with some really classy photos. Thanks for sharing girls!

    I also Mentioned Life of Meg and Mingle Mondays on my blog! So hopefully will recruit some more people too :) The mention is here:

    As for my halloween costume... I've already worn it!! Had a Tim Burton Tea party early cause we couldn't wait any longer, and went as Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas! Photos on my blog

    Have a good week everyone!

  35. I found An Ally Abroad, and Poor and Fabulous. They're great! I love how one of them is a student, like me, and the other is about shopping. Because I love shopping. ;)

    My favorite Halloween costume? Oh... well, this year I'm thinking about dressing up in a poodle skirt. How fun would that be?

  36. I visited Desperately Seeking Starbucks, and I found out she and I have similar diets. :D Definitely will be visiting again!

    I also checked out Stiletto Studio Blog - and I LOVED the pictures of the Tim Burton Tea Party!! I want to have a party now!

  37. Hi, I just visited Such life in the tropics, I loved looking at the cute animal photos and I also loved how passionate she is about cruelty to animals.

    I also looked at Beautiful ride I liked her bucket list and she had lots of interesting things on her blog

    For Halloween I won't be doing anything as we don't tend to cerebrate it in Australia

  38. Just read some great blogs from Mingle Monday! Ally Abroad was really great for me to read, because it brought back memories of the semester I spend in Europe. I also found Stay Calm, Have a Cupcake, which was adorable! I'm so excited to try some of those yummy recipes! As for my Halloween costume, I haven't quite decided!

  39. I visited The Fashionable Wife. Her blog is SO cute! I love the pictures, and the Halloween decorations! I'm so excited for Halloween and her decorations are adorable!

    I also visited Stiletto Studio Blog, and there is obviously so much talent there! I LOVE the idea of a Tim Burton Tea Party! Everything looks so yummy and creative!


  40. I haven't participated in mingle Monday for a while so I'm glad to be back.

    Anyway I visited:

    The Juici Life - really cute little blog, her dog is really adorable (especially as a puppy) and the other posts I looked at were all creative like pumpkin pie Martini.

    This Freckled Lemonade - This is an awesome blog, she does her own doodles which I think is pretty cool and her posts are hilarious I actually laughed out loud.

  41. So Glad Mingle Monday is still going on!
    This week I visited:
    Houston Hurdles: All about Danielle & her officer husband. Adorable blog!
    A Good Life: fun blog with cute posts about her husband and cute baby boy!
    Now following both!

  42. Yay mingle monday! Today I visited a little king and I. SO cute, i adore this blog i'm a follower now. Her little boy is absolutely adorable and I love her posts. Plus her music is excellent

    The second blog that i visited was Amanda and Don. Such a cute blog about someone who is totally in love which is adorable :) and she gets to see her husband for the first time in 4 months! CONGRATS!! that is so exciting and commendable she is capable of doing that.

    This year for halloween I'm going to be a train conductor and I am so so excited :) i've been looking forward to it for months!

  43. WOO HOO Mingle, Tuesday! I missed you like crazy yesterday and was worried the whole time! SO glad you're back :)

    I'm currently reading "Chasing the Extraordinary" and she seems so cool and down to earth. I'm all about bloggers that just write what they WANT to write...and you can tell she is real, fun, and super sweet. She just started blogging, so I think we ALL need to check her out and get her some exposure :)

    Next up is "The Boy Named After a Car"...this title totally intrigued me and pulled me in. Her photography is awesome! I am in love with her photos and her little one. Can't wait to keep reading both of these!

    And girlfriend, I have NO IDEA what I'm going to be for Halloween...any suggestions??? Haha!

  44. First I stopped by This Freckled Lemonade. I love the concept for her blog as well as the original artwork. Next up I headed over to Books 'N Shoes another super cute girly blog. I'll definitely be adding these blogs to my blog reading.


  45. Hello fellow minglers! I just visited Stay Calm, Have a Cupcake and whoa! I think I gained five pounds just by looking at it...everything looks amazing!

    I also visited The Business of Creativity. Great blog...very relatable. I plan on checking both these blogs out on a regular basis.


  46. I visited A Body That Won't Break and loved it! Love meeting other midwest married bloggers and her house looks so cute! (And I think she has the same bedding set as we do!)

    I also visited That's Life and loved all of the pictures of her puppy!

  47. I was scared I missed it, because I have been soo busy lately---I think I am catching it just in time! Yayy Mingle Tuesday!
    I visited "This Life of Ours" and saw Trish's new windows she put in their house, which was built back in 1959. They look great!

    Also went to Stay Calm, Have a Cupcake!
    Ummm....YUMMY! She has some great recipes posted and caused me to drool on my keyboard a little!

    Thanks for hosting again, Meg!

  48. DC DATING DIVAS- one word= HILARIOUS. Oh my word this is a funny blog and funny post. I agree all over the latest post about NAME DROPPER. I can't stand it and I Just love how she summarized it and presented her point of view because it is sooooo true!! Please if you are looking to learn more not only about DC but Dating as well drop by this page and have an informative laugh :).

    Next I scurried on over to...

    THE PRINCESS DIARIES- the theme is cute with all the disney princesses and her post was such a great topic for women. Especially young college students. I believe we are all struggling a tad with school and finances this year particularly and I loved how she was able to find a slamming affordable outfit and stay in budget. SO INSPIRING!!

    Yay for mingle mondays.. glad I found two new blogs this week.. woo woo.. spread the word ladies so we can keep finding new blogs and new friends to connect with. such a blessing :)


  49. I visited Tim Burton Tea Party over at Stiletto Studio. OMG have you seen the cake/cupcakes??? Fantastic! I would have loved to attend that party... it looked phenomenal!

    I also stopped by the Fashionable Wife. OMG she had Santa pictures taken with the pups... I so want to do that. I know I'm that person... LOL

  50. I first said Hello to Houston Hurdles, intrigued because my family lives in Houston. I love her pictures on her site, and can definitely relate to wanting to move out!

    Then I stopped over at A Beautiful Ride. Her bucket list and reading list are great. She posts fun links that make me smile, too!

  51. Happy Wednesday! Today I checked out...
    -a good life: I love her writing, so honest with so much humor. I like hearing other people talking about their eccentricities, especially when I have the same ones!
    -create meaning: funny, funny girl. I also want to go to DISNEY so freaking bad. Super recommendation on Lovely Shoes, too.
    -I posted here:
    -Halloween: I want to be marge simpson but am trying to do it wigless. Might not be possible.

  52. This week, I read some fantastic blogs!! First I went to A Good Life. I can't say enough about this fab blog. Amy is adorable, and her baby Parker is just the cutest thing ever. I LOVE the page where she shows the progression of her baby bump. I can't wait to read more from her.
    Then I went to This Freckled Lemonade. Let me tell you, she has so much talent with her drawings that it is incredible (also gave me a complex).
    And for a bonus (I couldn't pick just two) I went to Houston Hurdles. She is precious. And I am totally fighting the urge to cut my hair short like she has it in her picture...
    Love all three of these blogs and I can't wait to read more from them!!

    As for Halloween, I won't be dressing up, but my dog Buddy will! And I am making his costume, so you'll have to see my DIY project next week.

  53. I love this!! I visited The Boy Named after a car. Oh my goodness what a cute baby. The pictures are unbelievable!!
    I also visited This Life is Ours. As I prepare to move into my first ever actual HOUSE, this was exciting to get ideas on decorating and what it's like to settle in to "our place"

    Unfortunately, for the first time ever...I'm not feeling Halloween this year. But my two favorite costumes, which might get recycled if need be are Madonna and a bumble bee!

  54. Gosh, I think I have about 12 new blogs Im following now! I love coming here, and meeting new people and find new blogs.

    I included a mention on my blog
