Works been a little wild, but I am just now getting around to eating some lunch and updating my little blog - phew! Thanks to all of you who sent e-mails expressing your extreme concern for my overall well-being. I'm completely flattered that you were thinking of little ol' me!

  1. Happy Monday, Meg- hope you had fun at the concert (so jealous!)

    My favorite spring/summer food would have to be frozen yogurt. Heck, its my favorite food always!

  2. I checked out A Nest for All Seasons, and her recent blog discusses the question "what if this was my last post" which is just so profound. It really hit home with me after having a very close friend in a life threatening wreck last week. Really affected me.

    I also visited Sassy Shoe Diary/A Red Heel State of Mind- and her latest blog was about running, and how she isn't able to for the time being! I just started running, and I really enjoy it. I used to hate it, I was never a runner, but now I have found it's a great release. I hate that she has to go through PT and this injury, but I hope she gets to run again soon!!

    My favorite summer food is ice cream, which can really be an any time of year food. But I also enjoy funnel cakes which symbolize summer to me!

  3. Glad to be back on Mingle Monday after a few weeks of going MIA!

    My favorite food these days is anything cold (thank you pregnancy hormones!). I'd kill for a snow cone...hey it's 90 degrees here don't judge!

    1. Going the Distance: she recently posted a super interesting stripe in your birth order affecting your relationships. It was intriguing, however for me, nothing fell true. Ah well better luck next time!

    2. Sassy Shoe Diary: What a great attitude and outlook on life she has after injuring her knee and preventing her from continuing her daily exercise routine...temporarily of course. Wishing her a speedy recovery!

  4. Thanks for hosting Mingle Monday! It's becoming my favorite blog hop! I took a look at A Nest for all seasons, who had some words that really made me think about what would happen to my blog if something were to ever happen to me. I also checked out An Inner Voice, who had a very interesting travel story.

    Hope you have a great Monday, and a great rest of the week!

    my fave summer food is cookout food! pasta salad, corn on the cob, fruit salad, burgers, brats.. bring it on but leave the bake beans at home :) off to check out a few newbies! xoxo jcd

  8. My favorite spring/summer food is grilled chicken! Sadly we just moved into a condo and can't have a grill. I can't wait to have cook outs at other's houses though!

    I checked out A Red Heel State of Mind and loved that she's into running... I feel bad that her injury is causing her to take time off from exercising!

    I also checked out The Beginning of Everything and I love, love, love the new header that she designed! :)

    Happy Monday Everyone!

  9. Happy Monday!
    I visited The Beginning of Everything where she was pondering her next career move--something I often think about as well
    Then I went to Happy Girls are the Prettiest Girls and she just got a new bike and named it Cupcake! Super cute!

    My favorite spring/summer food is FroYo. Mmmm. It's perfect!

  10. I stopped by a Red Heel State of Mind and I love that she is keeping busy and staying positive even with her current injury.

    I also stopped by 25 Before 25 and found another baseball fan!

    My favorite spring food would have to be orange sherbet. Yum!

  11. I stopped by Blonde Undercover Blonde and I loved her artwork! It's a very similar style to mine! ;)

    I also stopped by Happy Girls are the Prettiest Girls and she blogged about her new bike, cupcake!

    My fav summer food is Froyo! Although I love it all year round!

    Happy Monday!

  12. First I went to Virginia Beach Housewife where she posted pictures pre- and post-closet re-organization. Quite an impressive job!!

    Then I went to AOG Daily where she talked about some really cute summer shoes. Makes me want some new sandals really bad...

    My favorite summer/spring food would be either grapes or frozen yogurt/ice cream. Yum!!!

  13. My favorite summer food is fruit. Strawberries, watermelon, etc. Yum!

    I visited:

    Sweet Tea Soundtrack - she's been visiting people in the hospital and related it back to her 101 list - love the connection! And a pat on the back rather than thinking she's not good enough or something.

    Blonde...Undercover Blonde - it looks like she had a nice weekend. And she loves Sweet Valley High, so she has automatic cool points.

  14. I visited Every Mile A Memory who featured a beautiful spring showers photo for her Happy monday photo link up. Loved it!

    Then I went to Our Neu Life who featured a lovely spinach lasagna wraps recipe which I am going to try asap!

    Speaking of food, my favorite summer foods, like Laura, are fresh fruits and all the yummy things I can make with them. :)

  15. I visited Laugh Until Your Cheeks Hurt, & I seriously think Shay had such a good attitude about being compared to Charlie Sheen!

    & I visited 25 before 25, who is not the only one who is stressing about finals!!

  16. ooh I cannot wait for some good barbecue!!

    I'm off to mingle with some new blogs..will report back boss!

  17. Hey there!

    My favorite summer food is strawberries, I'll be posting a picture of the great great fruit that I got at the grocery store soon.

    The Beginning of Everything: it sounds like we might be the exact same person. Trying to figure out what she's doing in the near future :)

    Blonde: sounds like she had a fantastic weekend! I love the nail polish in the picture!

  18. Thanks for hosting and happy Monday!
    I visited A nest for All Seasons. She had a really meaningful post that got me thinking.
    I also visited Synfully Delicious who had an nice anniversary tribute to her husband.

    My favorite summer food is FroYo, although by the time I load up my toppings it's probably not very good for me

  19. I visited The Beginning who blogged about this week's resolution (she has a resolution each week, wow!) and she's struggling with what she wants to do with life. Very cool blog!

    I also visited Going the Distance, who blogged about an article she saw on Yahoo about birth order and how it affects our personality. It was very interesting to read, and it fit me to a tee! :)

  20. I checked out 25 before 25. I always love reading her blog and it is so motivating. I also read Love, Julie. She did a great post on braids. I absolutely adore any and all braids. happy Monday!

  21. I visited The Sweet Life and Going the Distance... both super cute blogs!
    My fav spring food is all the fresh produce!! Thanks for hosting this lovely linkup Meg :)

  22. I love BBQing in the summer so anything you can grill would be my fav summer food!

    Stopped by Suze Blog, she was brave and did a vlog.. I kinda want to do one! Also stopped by Jesus Bring the Rain, she went to Florida.. Lucky!

  23. Visited Not Laughing & 25 before 25! Both were great blogs and awesome pictures :)

  24. stopped by brunch with amber, she posted about workout gear from target which happens to be MY fave place to buy workout clothes too :)
