  1. I missed you, lovelies!!

    Oh and heck yes, I scored some major Black Friday deals! I rocked Target, GAP and Banana, so know I should be styling!

    I might Cyber Monday it up for some boots - I still haven't found any affordable ones that are cute! :( Boo!

    Super happy you're here!

  2. We don't have Black Friday here in the yUcK but HMV were running a sort of Cyber Monday event and I got all my Christams DVDs and CDs at half price....really pleased about that because if I hadn't been blogging and hopping I'd never have known about Cyber Monday. Thanks for the hop again Meg.

  3. Just been to 'Falling Apples' and gone 'aaahhhh!'. You must visit to see the fab photos of her gorgeous puppy. 'Simple Little Joys' will put you into the festive mood immediately. I would love to spend Christmas at her house. Back later when there are more posts to read. This time difference is difficult-it means I spend most of the night up reading :)

  4. Simple Little Joys featured some great pictures of her house, fully decorated for the holidays! It made me want to pull out my christmas stuff and start decorating! :D

    Falling Apples' blog post today was an ode to her doggie, Winston! Such a cute puppy - they've had him for 1 year now!

    I didn't participate much in Black Friday - but, I did score a coat for my son for 1/2 off from Old Navy! :D

  5. Loved the Thanksgiving and food photos at Snyfully Delicious and Books N Shoes! Looking forward to reading more of their blogs!

    No Black Friday shopping for me because I was on Catalina Island. But maybe I will check out some cyber deals today! :)

  6. Love Classy Career Girl! she offers tips and advice for young professionals and it is SO helpful!! I also looked at falling apples, and her puppy and her girls are SO cute! :)

    No black friday shopping for me! I hate crowds!

  7. I looked at Apples Falling, and it's so adorable! She makes me want to go out and snatch a puppy asap.
    Classy Career Girl is fantastic! It's really difficult to find a relevant resource for a professional in my field, and her advice can apply to anyone.

    No black friday shopping for me, either. I was in Northern Minnesota in the midst of a snowstorm :)

  8. No black Friday shopping for me.. I slept in and loved every minute of it! Turkey Coma for sure!!

    Today I checked out a NEW blog to Mingle Monday - Classy Career Girl - such a great blog with some good advice!

    I also went to back to one of my favorites - Falling Apples. Her puppy is so adorable! I want a pup for xmas - we'll see if the BF comes through for me :)

  9. Happy Monday!

    I visited Stay Calm, Have A Cupcake! What an adorable blog that got my sweet tooth craving some dessert! And her latest post is all about THE cutest holiday sprinkles!

    I also visited A Sorta Fairytale. She takes beautiful photos & I gotta say...I'm jealous of her because of whatever camera she uses :)

    ♥ from Germany!

  10. Welcome Back!
    I visited Simple Little Joys. Her blog is too cute. Her latest post of her Christmas decor was just beautiful.

    I then went over to A Beautiful Ride. I loved that the look of her blog is simple. She has great taste in music.

    I am now a follower of both of these ladies!

    I actually have not bought anything yet. I missed the television deal I was wanting on Friday. Cyber Monday is not ever yet though.

  11. I haven't done my mingling yet, but trust me...I'll be back with reviews!

    In the meantime, I mentioned Mingle Monday on today's blog post.

    Now, I'm off to find some cyber monday deals. I'll report back with my results...and my reviews.

  12. I visited Amanda and Don and love her blog! I've been a follower for about a month. Gotta love fellow military wives

    Belles in Bows was so neat! I love the wreaths she posted about!

  13. I visited Classy Career Girl and The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree. They've got great things going! It was cool to get to discover some other bloggers.

    I got a great deal on a hoodie from American Eagle!

  14. Happy Holiday Season meg! It's officially holiday overdrive time! Yippee! Today I wandered over too:
    - A beautiful ride: So uplifting, cheerful and seriously gave me the warm and fuzzies
    -Classy Career girl: Amen for a girly blog about professional life, it's a refreshing change!
    - I shouted out Mingle Monday here:
    - I didn't do any Black Friday or Cyber Monday shopping. I'm mad at myself, but I'm just not prepared, I don't know what I'm buying for anyone for Christmas and think I've missed the boat...pout.

  15. Husbie tried to Black Friday shop for us in person, but it was a MADHOUSE and he has a funny video to prove it. However, I hopped online and ordered everything he was going to buy. Wish I would have thought about that sooner!

    Thanks for all of the love for my blog and little Winnie. He really is just as cute in person, LOVE him! :)

    This week, I visited:

    One Sassy Vixen - I'm looking forward to her tales as a Labor & Delivery nurse. She also has a very funny story about her anniversary gift!

    Classy Career Girl - Her blog is too cute! I love the 5 tips for Monday's. I'm definitely going to have to try those.

    I added the Mingle Monday button to my sidebar!

  16. I visited {simple.little.joys} and Star's pink world, both have their Christmas decorations up, and they look great!!

    I decided to forgo all the crazy shopping this not interested in all the crowds!

  17. I visited Classy Career Girl and thought her post for today had some great advice!

    I also visited Star's Pink World and loved all of her Christmas decorations! I can't wait to blog about mine tomorrow! :)

    We got some great deals on small house stuff on Black Friday - a safe, a paper shredder, stuff like that. Oh, and I got some jeggings (ha!) from Old Navy for $5 that I love!

  18. No Cyber Monday for me yet! That'd my test task!

    I checked out Desperately Seeking Starbucks and learned about her turkey drama!

    and Synfully Delicious and checked out Sunday shows and Glee! Yay!

  19. Oh no black friday shopping for me! The crowds are just too much. I usually only get out if theres really something in particular i need. Otherwise I like to enjoy my food coma from the Thanksgiving feast :)

    Today I visited Poodleism. SO cute! She posted about otters and it seriously made my heart melt. I am now a follwer :)
    I also visited Star's Pink World which was great. Shes hosting a 25 days of Christmas which looks like so much fun and I think I'm going to do it! You all should too!

    Happy Monday!! I love discovering new blogs through this and hearing from all of you, so much fun :)

  20. Happy holidays! I got the best deals at the Pearl Izumi and Champion outlets for cycling and running gear, can't wait for Christmas!

    I checked out Synfully Delicious, and she had a great post about her Thanksgiving dinner at her in-laws in Northern Minnesota. I only sometimes wish we got snow in Northern California, but not really :)

    I also checked out Classy Career Girl, who had the best tips on dressing for an interview.

  21. Oh and I also mentioned mingle monday on my blog today!

  22. I visited Classy Career Girl and really enjoyed her tips to combating Monday. I'm a new follower.

    I also visited Desperately Seeking Starbucks. She's definitely turkey cursed and I think I may never eat turkey again!

    I bought two Christmas presents yesterday for Cyber Monday!

  23. I visited Amanda and Don. Loved, loved, loved the paper wreaths she posted about; they are now on my "to do" DIY project list.

    I also visited Stay Calm Cupcake. I love unique flavored cupcakes, so will definitely be checking her out often.

    My only Black Friday deals were scored at Loft...40% off everything, which of course, translated into stuff for me, not gifts...oops!

  24. Awww man, I'm loving Mingle Monday this week because there are SO MANY fabulous posts about FAVORITE!

    Let's see...this week I'm checking out Virginia Beach Housewife first, and her first post is about my fav dessert...Oreo Truffle Balls. Ooooh, goodness. She had me at hello! Loving it. Can't wait to keep reading to see what other goodies she has in store!

    Second, I'm currently reading Keeping Up with Courtney, and I am loving her Christmas countdown post. That tree is TOO cute. And of course, I really enjoyed her thankful post, especially around this time of year. I love reading what everyone is thankful for, because it makes me think of how blessed we all are.

    Loooooove me some Mingle Monday, sweet Meg!

  25. Just got around to Mingling!

    I stopped by:

    The Luckiest in Love - great layout and lots of Christmas cheer! Loving it.
