    I'll be back soon to visit a few blogs!


  3. Hi!
    Today I visited Garden of Eden Designs and read her organization post - motivating for sure (especially the use of bright colors)

    and I also visited Synfully Delicious.. dont worry, we all have stressful days/months and I am sure where ever you decide to go on vacation will be awesome!

    and for my jams.... I really like to listen to Panic! At the Disco while working out

  4. I went to visit Harve and Polly, and totally loved it. Super cute site, nice graphics!

    Then I went and read about Jillian Michaels at Going the Distance. I'm kinda glad I haven't umped on that bandwagon yet, but might have to try it too!

    Workout jams? I wish! I am pregnant and laid up with a pelvic disorder, so all I listen to now is calming classical to keep from moving too much! Boo!


  5. thanks for hosting meg :) one of my favorite things to listen to when i work out is the hood internet, they mash up popular songs to a super upbeat and unique tune :) lots of fun and v motivating! xoxo jcd

  6. I first went to Faye's Book where she talked about her amazing weekend! Sounded like tons of fun!

    Then I went to Harve & Polly where she posted a really cool picture. So cool looking!

    5 top work-out jams? Oh gosh... I have been jogging to my Christian rock playlist as of late, so some of the more upbeat things by Third Day, Casting Crowns, etc.

  7. ps im in LOVE with the "think happy be happy" button! thats my google icon for my email :)

  8. I visited a few blogs today...Victoria @ Be One of a Kind gave some great organizational tips and Nikki Jo @ Color Me Neurotic did a sweet little survey {I love surveys!}.

    Thanks for hosting Meg!


  9. I went to Virgina Beach Housewife and she had a post on her Spring Cleaning and Organizing. Now I am in the mood to clean and organize! :) She is also having a giveaway for a $20.00 gift card to Target!

    I am about to go look through some more blogs! :)

  10. I don't have time for the Monday Mingle today (swamped!) but am going to save links to the blogs listed and try to go back and visit soon. Love this idea! Definitely holds those who participate accountable. MUCH needed in the blogging world. I get tired of being "followed" yet knowing nobody ever really reads my posts.

    Love the first commenter workout jams too! Awesome list!

  11. I went to Greer's Gossip! Cute blog!! :)

  12. girlfriend, i love this mingle monday thing you've got goin on! i know i've told you this but it's such a brillant idea! i visited victoria at garden and eden and picked up some staying organized tips and found my new favorite rule "always have coffee on hand" and i visited rachel at simple.little.joys where i got to wish her a happy 23rd birthday!
    hope you have a fabulous monday meg!

  13. OK! Here we go. I haven't done Mingle Monday in a few weeks...

    Synfully Delicious- I vote for you both going to NYC! I've always wanted to go there. :)

    Harve and Polly- LOVE the pictures. ADORABLE.

    And... I don't really work out so I don't have work out jams. Sad... I fail. :(

  14. Thanks for hosting Meg!

    be one of a kind: BEAUTIFUL blog. Loved her pictures and "how to stay organized in your hectic life" list. I needed that today :)

    harve and polly: great posts. love the simplicity!

    I have one of the strangest workout lists of all time, everything from country songs to Lecrae to Britney Spears.

  15. I visited the cleaning Godess in Color Me Neurotic n also drpped by at Synfully Delicious

    I dont workout usually, maybe once in a year before getting a pair of new jeans n in dat case I prefer d typical Bollywood songs!

  16. I stopped by Be One of a Kind where she talked about different ideas for organization--many of which I find super useful already! :)
    Then I went to Harve and Polly where there is a really uniqe glittery looking print that they found!

    As far as workout music, I like anything with a good beat. Diddy, Biggie, Pussycat Dolls, Britney. It all depends on the mood and what kind of working out I'm doing. I absolutely love when Im running and I hit a song that's beat is the same as the pace of my running! Nothing better!

  17. I visited Garden of Eden Design and I love the images and the organization tips!

    Also visited Simple Little Joys! She has a cute blog and just celebrated her birthday!

    Favorite workout jams: So many, but Eminem for sure.

  18. Hi Meg! Happy Monday!

    I visited Virginia Beach Housewife, and read her post about de-cluttering, which is something I desperately need to do myself! Also, she has a Target giveaway going on, and there are few things I love more than Target, so that was a big win!

    I also went over to Love is a Home, and was sorely tempted away from my low-carb diet by her Macaroni Grill bread recipe. Goodness it sounds so delicious.

    Loving Mingle Monday!

  19. I visited Perfectly Flawed and Words by Katie. They are both awesome! I can't wait to hear more.

    My favorite workout jams are Muse and Switchfoot. :)

  20. My bloggy post is a little down today, but I'm still participating!

    I checked out Jesus bring the rain, and kelsie was participating in miscellany monday. Sounds like she and I have a similar educational background. Awesome that she got in to grad school for the fall!

    Also stumbled over to Love Woke Me Up This Morning, who excited me with her 30 day book challenge. Fellow reader here, and I loved the vlog as well as hearing what she likes to read.

    i like to workout to stuff like the upbeat nsync and britany music. :D

  21. I looove mingle monday!

    I visited Garden of Eden Design, she had great organizing tips, and Virgina Beach Housewife and entered her great target giveaway!

    Workout music? Anything with a fast beat!

  22. Aloha, Meg! Happy Monday! Thanks again for hosting.

    Today I visited Embrace the Moment and read about her fabulous and fun weekend, and then dropped by Going the Distance, where I've read yet another positive review of Jillian Michael's workout DVDs. Am I the only person who has yet to break down and purchase these?!

    Ooooh...workout music? There are so many, but one of my personal favorites is Missy Elliot's "Get Ur Freak On". How can you NOT move to this beat?! :)

    Have a beautiful day!

  23. Happy Monday!

    Today I visited I Dream Loudly, who has an amazingly positive attitude, and Living Aloha, who is so inspiring.

    Favorite workout music? Anything by the Black Eyed Pea's. I know, kind of weird, but their songs always get me to MOVE.

    Have a great day =)


  24. I visited several of these blogs- so great!

    First I visited Harve & Polly. LOVE the layout- so clean and easy to read! Also, photo edits are fantastic.

    I also enjoyed all the lovely Hawaii pics on Living Aloha (though the gas prices were unbelievable)!

    Work out music? Madonna, for sure!! Especially Ray of Light. :)

  25. I am not really a work out kind of gal. When I went to the gym I listened to whatever came up on my iPod, and if it was fast or slow I didn't much care. I also liked listening to podcasts because I felt like I was making good use of my exercise time. But, for a fast song to get me moving, I just can't go wrong with Baby Got Back.

    I visited:

    Thoughts (and other useless stuff) - I am so impressed that she's only 16! I wish I had a blog when I was 16. I love all of the pictures she posts.

    Words by Katie - I love her blog and how she just writes about her thoughts and life. And she has good taste in men :).

  26. Hey Meg, thanks once again for hosting MM! My current top workout jams are Meet me Halfway-the BEB, E.T.-Katy Perry, Ghost Town-Shiny Toy Guns, Little Secrets- Passion Pit, No Plan B-Manafest, The Royal We-Silversun Pickups and more :)

    I visited Garden of Eden--she likes to make lists to keep her ever growing things to do in check. She has a really aesthetic blog, and I can't wait to get back in there and really check it out.

    Also checked out Life on a Stick, who posted a miscellany Monday about her daughter's approaching 3rd bday party, and her current pregnancy.

  27. I stopped by The Beginning of Everything and A Love Worth Waiting for. They both had some amazing design posts!

    My go to work out music is Christina Aguilera, in her old days. I also love some Glee. :)

  28. I stopped by Suze Blog and was so happy to see that someone else hates laundry as I do. :)

    I also stopped by Words by Katie I loved her blog colors, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to spend the rest of the day dreaming about her dream job!

  29. I went to Happy Girl and found out she likes MMA like me.

    Then I hopped over to Desperately Seeking Starbucks and found out about Mike Wertz I think his name is and I'd never heard of him before, but apparently I live under a rock.

  30. Hey there.
    I stopped by 25 Before 25 and Love to Laugh. Both were really cute blogs, and I really liked reading both.
    As for workout music, I have slight ADD...I constantly have to have new tunes on my Ipod; otherwise I get bored and slack on my workout!

  31. thanks for hosting (as always) Meg!
    I visited Love to Laugh-that girl has SUCH a cute blog!
    and Life with Laura-she has a fun blog too, with crazy stories!

  32. I have a ton of workout jams, lately it's been anything by Two Door Cinema Club... Anything that's good to run to really! I'll come check out some blogs later!

  33. visited lots today, but loving cornflake dream's style the most!

  34. I visited Simple Little Joys and today is Rachels Birthday! Head over to wish her a happy day! and then I visited The Beginning of Everything and she has some great designs going on at her place and she's learning to play with the DSLR.

    I'm really bad and don't really have work out jams...I like country, Christian, and some Pop.

  35. It's Mingle Monday! Woot woot! I will pretty much work out to anything with a great beat--BUT, i do love 18 Wheeler by P!nk--so awesome.

    Today I visited Nest for all Seasons: she made a clever piece of functional art to hold her glasses, hairbands, etc.. very cool.

    I also stopped by Chasing Extraordinary: I found out that Toms shoes donates a pair of shoes to needy children for each pair that is bought!

  36. I always look forward to Mingle Monday!'s here, but almost over. I stopped by The Beginning of Everything, where she shared an adventure she experienced while visiting Prague. I also stopped by Chasing Extraordinary, where she talked about TOMS. These shoes are amazing!! Check them out if you haven't already. Happy Monday!

  37. I stopped by Happy Girl and Sasta

    Sasta shared a funny picture of a guy dressed up as batman on rollerblades that said "haters gonna hate" I totally laughed out loud

    Happy Girl shared about her busy weekend!

    My favorite workout songs of the moment:
    Look at me now - Chris Brown
    More -Usher
    and lots of B.E.P :)

    Happy Monday!!

  38. I stopped by Love to Laugh, she was in an accident this weekend---but she's okay! And she's funny and I loved her blog!

    Living Aloha shared some very relaxing looking pics from her life in Hawaii, and I must say, it made me drool---what I would do for a beach trip right now!

  39. Thanks for hosting! My favorite workout song is rockstart by n.e.r.d. it always gets me going, even when i feel like i want to quit!

    i visited chasing extraordinary & the adventures of j & b. two very cute blogs with funny posts up!

  40. better late then never right :) stopped by living. laughing. loving playing.. she made a v cute love/dont love list! such a great idea to recap :)
    also stopped by chasing the extraordinary, she wrote about TOMS shoes :) LOVE these shoes.. and it makes me want to bump them to the top of my spring shopping list.

    have a lovely week!! xoxo jcd

  41. A little late...but I found two lovely blogs today!

    The first is New Life! What an absolutely gorgeous blog, so positive and inspiring! Can't wait to read more about life in India!

    The other blog I visited was The Beginning of Everything. Another positively beautiful blog...and a girl after my own heart!

    I love listening to Rhianna when I work out! Her music is so upbeat!

  42. DANG IT! How in the world did I forget to come back and post. Slacking on life...let me cheat this one time?? :)

    Favorite workout jams currently...anything on Britney's new CD. And Rihanna, Adele, or Justin Timberlake. Random, huh? My playlist changes every day.

    I was instantly drawn to "The Beginning of Everything" because of her classic, simple design. Love the look of her blog! And love her writing even more.

    Second I visited the Adventures of Josh and Britt...what a fun, bright blog! Her first post "A Few of the Universe's Great Mysteries" totally cracked me up. Can't wait to keep reading more about her!

    Love your blog, as always. And LOVE YOU!
