  1. I will be around checking out more blogs when they fill in, but for now, my plans for the 4th are.....nothing! I would love to go out, but pregnancy is weighing me down, and sitting out on the porch to see the fireworks sounds good enough for me!

  2. I have no plans yet! I suppose I should get on that.

  3. I'm in the UK so it isn't a big celebration here!! Hope everyone has a great weekend whatever they're up to!! Off to Mingle now :-)

  4. Hello, thanks for another edition of Mingle Monday. I don't have any plans for July 4th weekend as I live in the Cayman Islands and it's not even a holiday here, specially cause we are a British Territory.

    Will be back to visit some new blogs!

  5. I just visited "Living with Intention", I really liked her blog and her latest post about compliments!

  6. o a cabin vacation sounds like LOTS of fun! we dont have any plans for the 4th yet! h has to work (booooo!) so i think im going to have lunch w a friend and work on some blog redesigns :) xoxo jillian:: stop by! i'm hosting a jewelry giveaway

  7. I have no plans either, hopefully just grilling out, swimming, and fireworks!

    I'm a new follower of I Dream Loudly and A Sparrow's Flight! I'm trying to leave a comment for Sparrow, but I'm having trouble right now! I want to enter her giveaway! Love the be free hummingbird necklace in her etsy shop.

  8. Love "Seeks Starbucks" blog title- and I found a yummy recipe for Crab Wontons at "Love is Home" that I can't wait to try out! :)

    I'll be hanging out with family and friends for the 4th of July! Can't wait :)

  9. A cabin get away sounds perfect for the 4th! My plan is to have a cookout with family and enjoy a big firework show!

  10. First time linking up for Mingle Monday! Our plans consist of friends and lots of food!

  11. For 4th of July weekend we're just hanging out at home :) My husband has a few extra days off so we'll be enjoying some great family time!

    And I might have to be making the Crab Wonton recipe from "Love is home"!

  12. We go on Friday the 1st for our local BIG fireworks show, then to the local amusement park on Sunday afternoon to float around in the water park. The actual 4th of July, I hope to do nothing but sit my butt in the air conditioner and read! :-)

  13. I read The Goddess Writes- I LOVED the Jane Eyre pics and she did a great review on blogging sites!

    I also read On The Front Porch - CONGRATS ON GETTING ENGAGED!!!!!!!

    My plans for the 4th of July: some friends are going to come visit and I'm going to go with one of them to get her nose pierced! :D

  14. I don't have any plans for the fourth yet. I would be happy to spend the day at home reading a good book.

  15. Hiiii Minglers! :)

    I have a bunch of blogs open in new tabs to visit as I sneak glimpses this afternoon!

    For the weekend, I'm taking Friday off to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday! We are going to a wedding together on Saturday and will probably be recovering from the wedding/driving home/relaxing on Sunday with family. Monday I want to see some fireworks!!

  16. I visited Laugh Until Your Cheeks Hurt--she did a really cool project herself that she saw on Pinterest! I'm inspired to try some of the things I've seen now!
    I also visited Life on a Stick--she has some of the MOST adorable pictures of her newborn twins posted. Seriously, they are presh!

    4th of July plans are still up in the air but might be staying in DC, going to Rehobath with some friends or going to VA Beach to visit my friend since she moved back home. I need to decide soon!!

  17. I visited I dream loudly and Life on a Stick. Great blogs! I love dream loudly such a positive blog and the twins on life on a it! My mom is a twin and my cousin just had twins!

    This is my first time linking up and I accidently didn't add a picture to my link! But my plans for the 4th as of right now are sadly working. :( I work the night shift too so that means no fireworks for me.

    I went to Nothing Rhymes with Rachel and loved her blog. She introduced me to kareoke cab! Love it! Also visited Going the Distance and saw pictures of her and her lovely boyfriend. What a cute couple.

  19. Today, I stopped by Going the Distance and Laugh Until Your Cheeks Hurt. Both super cute blogs! I absolutely loved Jenn's date recap on Going the Distance (and am super jealous of her awesome date weekend) and I think I'll be copying Shalyn's DIY project...and I'm following her on Pinterest.

    I always think about making "exciting" plans for the 4th of July, but I ALWAYS end up driving to my mother's house instead. The Wimbledon final is that Sunday and her birthday is the 5th. We watch together and I make her cook for me. I couldn't imagine a better way to spend it.

  20. I stopped by life on a stick. She talked about her life with her new baby twin boys. So precious!! I also stopped by nothing rhymes with rachel.
    She talked about her busy weekend. I regularly read her blog and love it. Happy Monday!!

    I visited Going the Distance and Words by Katie. Two wonderful blogs, and I love both of their blog headers!

    Oh, and for July 4th I'm off to Ohio to visit my boyfriend. So excited!!

  23. This 4th of July I'll be spending it with family up at the cottage. It's so nice to be home for the summer and getting a breath of "fresh air" from living over seas! Have a wonderful holiday, everyone!!

  24. This year I'll be spending the 4th with my family cooking out, playing with the kiddos, and of course watching the fireworks!

    This week I visited Going the Distance and Nestful of Love. Both great blogs!

  25. I stopped by The Sweet Life. She's recapping the highlights of her fun trip home for Miscellany Monday.
    I also went to Made for Sunny Days. She posted about living for today. She embraced that philosophy by running a marathon!
    Aaaand, I stopped by On the Front Porch who has a little news tidbit: she's engaged!!

    Love Mingle Mondays Meg. So glad you hosted again this week :)

  26. Oh, 4th of July plans: not working :) Maybe meeting up with our friends and their 2 little ones at their place.

  27. I don't have an 4th of July plans just yet but I'm hoping for a fun party or BBQ with friends since my guy will be out of town =(

    Checked out The Sweet Life & Love Woke Me Up

  28. Hi Meg :) I stopped by Nestful of Love; she has the Sweetest sister in law, who made her a cute binder that's full of recipes -just for fun. I admire surprises, and thought that was really cool.
    I also looked at the blog "Life on a Stick," and I would have never guessed how happy I'd feel once I looked - if you haven't looked at her blog, it is a must. Utter happiness is bound to occur.
    4th of July - I thought I was going to be doing what I usually do -and, I'm pretty sure that I will not. So, I have no idea what I"ll be doing!
