  1. I visited AOC daily which is a nice eclectic blog - movies, music, surveys, live. I like a blog that mixes things up.

    I also visited Love is Home - who has a current a very thought-provoking post on the recent natural disaster.

  2. Hi!!!

    My favorite home cooked meal is pot roast with carrots, potatoes, and onions. YUMMY!

    I stopped by AOG Daily. She has a great blog full of posts of all sorts. Everyone will be able to connect with her in some way.

    I also stopped by Love is Home. I love her blog too. I feel like we have similar tastes when it comes to decorating. She had quite a few pictures posted of ideas for different rooms in her home and I loved every one of them.

  3. I checked out Love is Home, which i loved her post on her reaction to the disaster in Japan. Her bathroom inspiration pics are beautiful in the previous post as well.

    I also checked out cornflake dreams who has an awesome collage of her plans for visiting Portland, OR. She seems to do it for every post, regarding what she's blogging about which is awesome!

    My favorite homecooked meal is my mamaw's spaghetti or her roast beef.

  4. Went to visit cornflake dreams, and totally fell in love. Adorable blog, lots to look at.

    Then I went over to Just the Three of Us. Sweet blog about a little family. Very sweet!

    Fav home cooked meal: My mom's meatloaf. Divine!

  5. I actually just posted today about one of my favorite meals! (It's lasagna)

    I dropped by You Me and Baby Makes Three. I loved her cute DIY frame and shellac nails!

    I also visited Life on a Stick and died laughing about her snoring husband, who is exiled to the couch!

  6. I visited Adrienne at AOG Daily, who filled out a survey about her name {which I love!}. I also visited Cameron at Just the Three of Us, who threw her friend the most adorable baby shower!

    Thanks for hosting again today!


  7. I visited Just the 3 of Us, her DIY frame was too cute! Also visited Love, Julie and she totally inspired me to go out and buy some impromptu party necessities! Cute napkins? Yes please!

    And.... My favorite meal is anything grilled! It's makes me think of summer!

    Thanks for hosting again!!!

  8. I visited Undercover Blonde and Our Neu Life, they were both ADORABLE and the Lasagna on undercover blond looks fantastic!

    Thanks again for this week!

  9. I visited Sweet Tea & a Soundtrack, and Just the 3 of Us. :) they are fabulous. I know I've said it before, but I really like how mingle Monday is growing. It's good!

    My favorite homecooked meal is definitely lasagna. :)

  10. meg, thank you for hosting!
    my favorite home-cooked meal hands down is my moms meatballs. we always have them for birthdays and holidays :)

    i stopped by our neu life, loved the mandate! too cute. i also went to sweet tea and a soundtrack, the recipe for chipotle honey chicken salad sounds AHMAZING! must try.

    xoxo jcd :: cornflake dreams

  11. Hi Meg, thanks again for hosting!

    Today I visited Cameron's You, Me and Baby Makes 3 (her thumbnail photo was too adorable to pass up!). Her recent post shows her craftiness and the little prayer instantly brought me back to my childhood, listening to my Poppa say grace. I'm looking forward to following along on her blog; she seems like such a fun person, and she is quite the gorgeous Georgia Peach! :)

    I also visited VB Housewife. Her recent trip to NOLA and all that fine dining is making me hungry in a bad way. Now I want me some fried donuts!

  12. Happy Mingle Monday!

    This week I stopped by:

    Blonde...Undercover - Her blog is adorbs, her post about Pioneer Woman is very funny and I share a love of the Wakefield Twins as well.

    Love, Julie - Her list for what to keep on hand for an impromptu party was fantastic! I need to pick up these things for nights like last night when husbie surprised me with dinner guests. ;)

    Hmm, my favorite homecooked meal is hard to choose! Probably Thanksgiving dinner. Yumm-o!

  13. This is my first time at Mingle Monday and it really helped ease the stress of the day - thank you Meg :)

    I visited Happy Girl and admired her sparkly ninja shoes. Her thoughts on relaxing also piqued the interest of this equally high-strung control freak.

    I also visited Just Me and wished her luck on her post-baby weight loss journey. It was good to hear from a fellow Canadian who feels the snow pain.

    My favourite home-cooked meal is slow-cooked beef pot roast with gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans and a dinner roll with butter. Mmm...if only I could have some right now without having to cook it myself.

  14. I stopped by The Weekender Project and Life As I Know It.

    Both blogs were cute and funny and I'll definitely be stopping by again!

    My favorite home cooked meal is my mom's beef stroganoff!

  15. Today I stopped by two precious blogs: The Sweet Life and Going the Distance and read all about their weekends. I read all about Jenn's birthday weekend at Going the Distance and all about Stephanie's trip home.

    My favorite home cooked meal is probably my mama's cube steak with mashed potatoes! Yum!

  16. Stopped by Steph's Sweet Life and became a follower :) I'm about to start reading Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin - didn't know they were coming out with a movie!

    Also stopped by Synfully Delicious and followed! We have a lot in common - she's a nurse, I'm a nursing student, we're both full time student, in our 20's and from Minnesota. LOVE IT! :)

    My favorite home-cooked meal is WHITE CHICKEN CHILI. Reminds me of home everytime I make it! Yum!!!

  17. I went to visit Greer's Gossip where she talked about her love of March Madness Brackets! I also went to Life As I Know it, where she talked about her random weekend happenings, some books she was going to read and a little review of the movie Morning Glory.
    My favorite home cooked meal is Pesto Spinach Lasagna! Mmmm

  18. I found two new blogs! Yay! My favorite home cooked meal is my mom's chicken casserole! Yum.

  19. Hey Hey!! Yay Mingle Monday!! I stopped at Jenn's blog (Going the Distance) and realized that we have something in common: a long distance relationship! I also stopped at Michelle's Virginia Beach House and enjoyed seeing her pictures of her awesome family and HOUSE!! *jealous*

    Thanks Meg for another MM!

  20. Hey there! I stopped by Sweet Tea and Soundtracks and Love, Julie. Sweet Tea's recipe looked delicious and Love, Julie seems to share my love for parties.
    Hmmmm...favorite home cooked meal...that's a tough one for me...I guess this is proof we eat out too often

  21. My favorite home cooked meal - that's a tough one for me. Food does not really get me excited, unless it's warm brownies (hot fudge only makes them better). I suppose I like a good casserole.

    Blogs I visited:
    Life as I know It - super cute blog! I love the pictures and her 101 in 1001 list.

    The Sweet Life - I love all of the pictures she posts in her posts.

  22. Yay for another Mingle Monday. I have missed quite a few lately. It's good to be back!
    Today I stopped by 'You Me and Baby Make 3.' What a crafty lady! And to get the things she does done with a baby too. Wow is all I can say.
    I also stopped by Adventures in Amber-land. Apparently the new year is all about the weight loss. She is starting to host Fitness Fridays!

  23. I'm glad you posted later in the day so hopefully i won't be the last one!! Pacific time is a drag)

    So far I stopped over at AOG--she posted pics of her pre- and post-hair and makeup ritual (beautiful both ways!)

    I also stopped at Love, Julie. She had some great ideas for how to be ready to host a party at the drop of a hat!!

  24. I stopped by going the distance & sassy shoe diary! Both were really nice!

    My favorite home cooked meal is Spaghetti!

  25. Happiest girls are the prettiest girls: what a breath of fresh air! I hope if we go the nanny route instead of daycare our nanny is as light-hearted and fashionable as her!

    Adventures of Josh and Britt: umm hello! I had to view this blog because it's my initials! And I'm glad I did...I got some great insight on what new motherhood will be like in about 7 months.

  26. I stopped by greer's gossip, which is always amazing! She posted about the bachelor finale. I was so excited to watch it tonight. I also stopped by going the distance. Her blog is so fun and cute. Happy monday!!

  27. I visted n enjoyed her post on fast girls who end up wid a slow start in life. although the post's subject wasnt very interesting in itself, she did pepped it up wid her style!

    n I also visited ixy at Illusion n throughly enjoyed her post on gyms n its hooligans particularly old women who hv lost all sense of courtesy!

    n my favourite home cooked meal is Pulaw and Raita! Pulow is a type of Indian fried rice, it has a very nice sweet n salty taste n very aromatic smell n also has a lot of cashews n raisins thrown in! n raita is dish made of unsweetened yogurt n other vegetables n spices which kind of gives it a contrast from d pulaw so its like two very strong, delicious n opposite flavours in ur mouth!

    PS: i am a foodie, so it had to be descriptive!

  28. Hello!


    Love, Julie
    she has great taste and i fell in love with her outfit posts & her photo roundups

    The Weekender Project
    the blog has a great layout, and i really like the photography - Ill be sure to go back for some DIY inspiration

    favorite food:
    home made egg noodles & fried chicken

  29. Happy {Tuesday} Monday! I visited Adventure's in Amberland who is doing a new Friday concept called Fitness Friday. Sounds cool. Also Tri-ing to be athletic was super hilarious! I found a couple new blogs to follow so that was awesome!

    Hmmm, my fav meal? So many to choose from, but I just posted a killer mac and cheese recipe on my blog today- check it out for the ultimate in home-made goodness!

    Thanks Meg!

  30. Going the distance-I can really relate because I've been in a serious long distance relationship as well!

    Greer's Gossip-love her blog header and beautiful wedding photos!!!

  31. Love is Home had some great questions answered and I agree that my favorite journey is my marriage too!
