Mingle Monday Blog Hop

Hey girl, hey!!
Let me personally welcome you back to the work week - in need of a cocktail yet? Super sorry on my tardy post today, I was visiting my rheumatologist this morning and had meetings until now! No worries, I didn't forget you!

So tell me, how was your weekend? Any juicy tidbits to share? Fun happenings?! I enjoyed the weekend by spending some quality time with lots of different girlfriends!

I stimulated the economy with the purchase of my adorable burnt orange Tyler Rodan handbag, tailgated before the Sporting KC soccer game with Adam and co., and had some quality relaxing time with my main man! (Have I told you lately that BF is such a stud? ...because he totally is.)

{ Alright, enough chatting, let's mingle!! }

    I visited Cornflake Dreams and she has a lovely post about her weekend.

    I also visited Going the Distance and she posted about her love for The Hunger Games. I love to read, so it was nice to read about what she thought of the books. I loved them, too!

  10. I stopped by Life with the Edwards – I could totally relate with her “Don’t let your sister cut your hair” story! Great Post!

    Adventures In Amber-land has a super cute maxi dress profiled – Love it – however those long dresses never look right on me…. Love her blog backdrop!
    This weekend we had our 2nd surf lesson and it rocked – by far my most favorite activity done this weekend!
    Xoxo from Trinidad

  11. I stopped by Sparrow Flight, who just sent her manuscript in to editors this week! Woot woot!

    I also stopped by The Housewife who is contemplating bangs! ahhhh! no to bangs!!

  12. I liked that maxi dress from Amber-land, but I liked the white one on another post even better!
    The best part of my weekend was tubing on the lake at the cottage. Good way to cool off in the heat.

  13. I visited Such Life in the Tropics who has a beautiful blog visually, as well as a wonderful spiritual perspective on her posts, which I love.

  14. I had a pretty busy weekend, but my favorite part was the part where Spencer and I got to just hang around the house!

    I visited Going the Distance. I have never been to her blog so it was exciting! She talked about reading The Hunger Games.

    I also visited Amber-land who is featuring a gorgeous maxi dress.

  15. I had a great weekend and my favorite was probably going to a baseball game with my friends!
    Happy Monday!

    Happy Monday! I visited giving and growing - love the inspirational title and theme, and her heartfelt posts!

  17. Happy Monday Meg. I stopped by Carolina Love...she posted all about her weekend and getting 50 followers...wahoo! We all know how exciting getting new followers can be.
    I also stopped by A Sparrow's Fight. She blogged about her 30 before 30. I follow so many of the blogs that I have discovered from Mingle MOnday...So exciting.

  18. My favorite part of the weekend was giving myself permission to take Sunday off from cleaning out my Grandpa's house and just relax. So wonderful and MUCH needed.

    I visited:

    If it's not ok, then it's not the end...who just enjoyed an awesome time w/old friends. Love that. - Her grandma's in the hospital and she's upset about that. But, I admire her ability to rely on God. She has lots of life lessons in her posts.

    A Carolina Love - it looks like she had lots of good things happen in the last seven days. And she's adorable.

    What a long, strange trip it's been...she loves blogging and even gave shout outs to some of her favorite posts

    Reading Escapes - if you want a book recommendation, this blog has them!

    Faster than Forever - love her! She posted the Jersey Shore trailer which I've yet to see. Gotta watch now...

  19. My favorite thing about this weekend was Saturday night. It was my 30th birthday so my Husband and I went out with our best friends and went out for dinner and went bar hopping! We had a blast!

  20. i work at a furniture/appliance store.. we sold 900 air conditioners in one day! the weekend was hectic, so my favorite part was being off on sunday and relaxing!

  21. happy happy monday pretty lady! hope everything went okay at the drs :)

    my fav thing from the weekend - NO WORK!!

    <3-Cami from First Day of My Life Life

  22. My favorite thing this weekend was spending time at the fair! There's nothing like sweating your butt off while you eat a funnel cake and watch some of the craziest people in the world. Fun times!

    Today I visited 25 before 25. She's got a great love/don't love post, and she got to spend some precious hours with her out-of-town bf this weekend.

    I also visited Nicoolmama, who has linked some posts to make you feel better about things. It was nice to read a few of them - made my day!

    Then I visited Suze Blog, where I found out I'm not the only one who has wasted away my summer doing seemingly insignificant, yet enjoyable things :)

    Happy Monday!

  23. I loved the pinning hair photos at Middle of Nowhere! So pretty and I wish I could do that with my hair!! My favorite activity of the weekend was hanging out with family who were in town and hanging out by the pool! I love Summer!

  24. I visited Tricia at My Fabulous Pursuit of Happiness and she has some great photography talent! I loved reading about her fun camping excursion-it made me want to go camping too!

    I also visited Tri-ing to Spin! I love her illustrations! I can soooo feel her pain! Her blog is a definite must follow!

    My favorite weekend activity was showing CJ that you can run errands on a bike-you don't always have to drive!

  25. Ashlee over at On The Front Porch Looking In is about to come to Texas, and she's excited to try Whataburger (but I think she should go get some fro-yo, 'cuz it's massively hot here).

    Cami at First Day of my Life just got to spend some amazing time at the beach. So jealous!

  26. I visited On the Front Porch. She is off to Texas for the first time and i'm jealous. I love it there!

    I also went to Married in the Middle of Nowhere. She has some very pretty updo ideas for her wedding!

    My fave activity from this weekend was doing absolutely *nothing*. Heaven.

  27. My favorite activity this weekend?
    Like everyone else, it's shopping!!!
    And ofcourse, attending sunday service would top my list :)

  28. My favorite part of my weekend was hiking my favorite mountain.
    (I loved it so much I even wrote a whole post on it!

    Over at Tri-ing to be athletic talks about sweating and dangerous heart rates. Because I mean that sounds like a good time for everyone right?

    Nicoolmamma linked up to other posts from other bloggers that she enjoyed from the week, which I think is such a great idea. We should all try and share reads that we love with our readers more often, because they will probably love it too!

    Over at Nothing Rhymes with Rachel, she sampled lots of beer and baked chicken.But not at the same time. I would read that post too though!

    And over in Amberland Ms. Amber found an adorable maxi dress. Soooo jealous of that girl!

  29. I stopped by a Sparrow'sFlight where she talked about crossing off some of the things on her "List"! Yay for accomplishments!!
    I also went to What a Long Strange Trip It's Been, and she was talking about how amazing blogging is. I couldn't agree more!!

    My favorite activity this weekend was staying inside out of the "Heat Dome" and reading The Hunger Games!! I totally recommend it!!

  30. Hey there everyone! My favorite activity this weekend was going on a 15 mile bike ride with my hubby and friends (through long dark tunnels and gorgeous trees)...

    This week I visited:
    *Tiny Green Elephants: great blog with gorgeous photos that just scream fabulous summertime with the ones that ya love.
    *Going the Distance: Jenn just bought some cute Toms and is a fellow SLP (just like me!).

    Now following both...have a great week everyone!

  31. I visited Someday Sunday...her blog link is called Love and Baseball which means I immediately love her!

    I also visited Tiny Green Elephants...I love her pictures!
