  1. I think every date with my boyfriend is the best. Sounds so boring I know, but I just love being with him.
    So even of we just buy a bottle of wine and take it home, and watch TV its all great with me.
    I just LOVE the time we spent together.

    Happy Monday!

  2. I loved the Royal Wedding!! It was proper real love with them it seems!! Heartwarming to watch :-) Happy Monday!!!

  3. If I'm being honest, I've never been on a date before. And yes, I am 22 years old. Help a girl out here!
    I visited Cornflake Dreams - awesome blog! I also have a style crush on Zooey Deschanel.
    I also visited Yellow and Gray. Cutest kitties ever!! And Boyce Avenue was playing on the music player - love them!

  4. i really like when h and i are able to take short weekend trips together (we have gone to new orleans and portland-- nyc is next on the list!) i also like more low key stuff we do together like taking walks and cooking dinner together :) thanks for hosting meg! happy monday! xoxo jillian

  5. I stopped by "On the front Porch looking in" and she had some really cute pictures of things with a grey/yellow theme from Etsy.
    I also went to Lu3lu's Crossing and she had a nice quote about rain--gave me a good perspective when there are so many rainy days here lately!

    My favorite date ever was right after my boyfriend and I decided to be "official"...we went to a local sushi restaurant that had a nice, cool and quiet environment. I remember him not letting go of my hand until the food arrived, and then reaching for it again when the food was gone. He still does this today, and it always reminds me of our first date and how giddy we were!

  6. I have yet to be asked out on a date, so no cute date stories for me.

    I visited:

    A Nest for all Seasons - who knew baby chickens are so cute?

    On the front porch looking in - neat pictures from the visit to the farm

    Lu3Lus Crossing - an interesting post about there is no real prince charming

    Going the Distance - sounds like a fun weekend with friends! And a nice thank you to the military and military families.

  7. Thanks for the blog hop; I visited Joelle @ Love is Home, she has a very well designed and interesting blog. My favorite date was the Eiffel Tower at night, on my first trip to Paris with my husband. :-)

  8. p.s. I made a post about Mingle Monday on my blog, just for you, Meg. Thanks for hosting :).

  9. I am so excited for mingle Monday! My favorite dates were visiting Mitchell when he lived in Santa Barbara and I lived in San Diego. We had such a romantic time!!

    I visited Nest for All Seasons and saw her cute little chicks and chicken coop and I Dream Loudly and read about her weekend and getting to see her new little baby!!

    Thanks for hosting!

  10. I forgot to mention who I visited AND didn't see the question! What's up with me today?

    I am now a new follower of High Heeled Life. Also visited, Yellow and Grey and I Dream Loudly (love the scan!).

    Question answer: My favourite was going to a little bar, playing some pool, choosing some jukebox songs and sitting all close :-) Basic but just lovely.

  11. Favorite Date: honestly, not one sticks out to me. Not because they aren't good, but I've loved so many. Our honeymoon was awesome, but a very specific date would be when Josh and I went to a Jack Johnson concert this last summer. When I think of Jack and his songs, I think of our relationship... so that was pretty special.

    Mingle-wise, I checked out Where Nest is Home (I might have to start being a follower), and I'm so jealous of her coup and chickadees!

    I also love a good color palette so I quite enjoyed On the Front Porch Looking In.

    I can't wait to hear how your party went last Friday!

  12. Hi! First I stopped off at Sweet Silver Lining, where she posted a great playlist that will get you out of those Monday blues!

    Then I went to A Nest for All Seasons where she talked about the chicken coop her hubby had built, then showed adorable pics of some chicks! Can we say, "awww?"

  13. Favorite date ever: Horseback riding with my husband. He is so handsome.

    I went to visit Going the Distance and sympathized with finishing out the school year!

    Then I went to On the Front Porch and loved the colors today. Totally gave me some good ideas for baby room!


  14. My favourite date was my first one with my husband - we played pool, went out for dinner and watched a movie. So nothing wild, but that great feeling of clicking with someone is what really makes the date.

    I visited Greer's Gossip and was entertained by her description of the current fashion in teenage prom dresses. Apparently tutus are involved. Gotta get back to my conference meeting, but will be back in a few hours to check out more blogs :) Happy Monday!

  15. I love romantic and sweet dates :) I'm obsessed with The Royal Wedding and I love seeing pictures and articles about it on everyone's blogs!

    Happy Monday!

  16. I've never been on an official date, despite being 22. Sad times :(

    I looked at I Dream Loudly, congratulations on the baby! I hope the chicks let you get some more sleep soon.

    I also checked out Made for Sunny Days and it looks like there will be some interesting blogs to come with their travels. Hope you have a good time :)

  17. My favorite date ever was probably the weekend that dh and I spent in Gatlinburg planning our wedding. It was just the two of us and, though we had no money, we felt like we were splurging just by getting to go.

  18. Good afternoon! Today for Monday Mingle I visited:

    Desperately Seeking Starbucks: Her love of this country gets me all teary-eyed. I feel so full of pride when my fellow Americans appreciate the country they live in. She also opened her blog post with a great quote which I promptly copied down to save for later!

    A Little Bit of This & That: Michelle posted a great first date story of one of her friends. Those are the best to read because it makes you all warm and fuzzy inside. Michelle's blog definitely makes her readers keep coming back for more! Love it!

  19. favorite date ever- summer dates that involve the park and frozen custard are generally my favorite kind of date. :)

    Life with the Edwards: GORGEOUS blog! very pretty colors

    A Litte Bit of This and That: I really liked the design of this blog and enjoyed the guest post. :)

  20. stopped by lu3lus crossing--she has a great list of what she learned since easter. v cute.
    and LOVED on the front porch's post with grey and yellow! such a great color combo.

    xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

  21. favorite date ever has to be when we went to the zoo. I love the zoo!

    I stopped by A Nest for All Seasons and I loved reading about her new chicks!

    I also stopped by I Dream Loudly and I loved her excitement about the sonogram she'd just had.

  22. I'm sorry I uploaded my website twice! I didn't think it went through the first time :(

  23. I have been on some pretty fun dates it's hard to pick just one! A train ride on the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, a visit to the Biltmore House, going to see various plays (Wicked being one of my favorites!), picnics, and pizza/movie nights. No matter what my husband and I do, I just love spending time with my best friend!

    I visited Bless this Nest, A Little Bit of This and That, and Undercover Blonde.... cute blogs!!

  24. I loved the blogs I visited so far today! I have had a chance to visit Desperately Seeking Starbucks, who had a great reflective post, and then lu3lu's crossing, who had a great top ten list on her blog (:

  25. I visited Going the Distance-she went to see Water for Elephants and I can't wait to see that movie! I also visited Lu3lus Crossing-she had a lovely post about random things and I loved it!

    My favorite date was probably my first date with my husband. We went to an amusement park and I'm so glad we did something fun like that and kind of out of the norm. It was on that date that I knew I would marry him!

    Happy Monday dear!

  26. Best date ever...hubby surprised me by taking me on a picnic and then bought me baseball gear and took me to a sold out baseball game where I got my favorite players autograph. Not the most romantic date we've been on, but definitely the most fun!

  27. My favourite date was my first official one with my man. He took me to one of the best restaurant's in the city. We are both pretty cheap with money so this was a BIG deal! Then he took me for coffee and for a walk on the waterfront for our first kiss :)

  28. I stopped by High Heeled Life..loved her post on friendship.
    Also stopped in Going the Distance..she kinda looks like the new princess Kate!

    This is my first time at Mingle Monday and I tweeted about it too @Wanderingheart7.

    I haven't been on a date in awhile, but I love dates where the guy cooks for me. I think it's just so sweet and casual and it's a good time to relax and get to know each other.

  29. I love when Mr. G cooks a wonderful meal and we sit back and relaxing after an exhausting week ... thats our date night.

    Today I stopped by.. Going the Distance ... her blog design welcomes you and she is a Speech Pathologist...

    I also stopped by Sincerely, Jill ...she is sharing an awesome Apple pie recipe...

    Meg, it's been awhile since I participated but I keep your linky party button under Blog Hops tab ...xo HHL

  30. Happy Mingle Monday!

    I love zoo dates. They're my favorite.

    I visited A Little Bit of this and That. She has an absolutely adorable design!

    I also visited Going the Distance.. We both saw Water for Elephants this weekend!

  31. I visited
    I love her 1001 Things to Love! Super cute panda coffee photo.

    Also, I stopped by
    I adore her layout design. And her proposal photo in her Love Story, part 4 is too precious. I think I'll be following here!

    Happy Monday everyone!

  32. AnonymousMay 02, 2011

    I visited summer dreams first - love her pretty and simple blog design!

    Then I visited On the Front Porch Looking in. Great yellow and grey ideas!

  33. Yay Mingle Monday! I visited They Call Her Meghan. She had a great weekend with family. I also went to I Dream Loudly. She recounted her exciting ultrasound appointment :)

    I read Ken or action Man? A post about how our childhood experiences shape us as adults. Finally, I stopped at Love, Julie. She is looking for advice on what to spend money on vs. where to save.

    Favorite date? Off the top of my head I'd say the night the hubby proposed. Aww...

  34. Stopped over at Bring The Rain...She has an amazing blog! And she lives in the same town I lived in for a year in 2010! Too cool!

    Also stopped at Falling off and High-heeled the title of her blog!


  35. I visited Life with Laura and read about the sweet surprise she found from her grandma. It was touching.

    Bring the Rain had a great post about some of the recent current events, and a post last week about living in the South that made me want to pack my bags and drive to Mississippi right now!

    Dance and Dream has pictures of the most amazing invitations that I *need* for my bachelorette party. Seriously, go check them out!

    My favorite date would have to be the first date with my fiance. We went to a rodeo at the county fair, walked hand in hand down the midway, and he introduced me to the wonders of funnel cake :)

    Happy Mingling!
