Mingle Monday Blog Hop!

My oh my, my heart is happy today! After such a fabulous weekend full of good company, fun outings, and lots of happiness, I'm in a super great mood today. Despite the chilly cold front that is moving in, I'm happily listening to my mellow Norah Jones pandora station, while wearing my over sized cozy sweater and sipping coffee... Monday perfection.

It's already been a super productive day at work so far, so I needed a quick mental break while I'm in between projects. So, I want to hear from you! How are you feeling today? Is everybody doing okay? Hopefully if you need some cheer, Mingle Monday will be just what you need!

{ Let's mingle! }

Will you do me a favor today, sweet friends? Will you perhaps mention Mingle Monday in a post today or this week? We've had such a great turnout the last few weeks and I love visiting all of these new blogs, and have them visit YOU!

  1. Hi Sweetie! There are so many big things coming up for me that my list of goals have quickly expanded. I guess the big one now is to get my work life squared away before the big move next year.

    xoxo, Nali

  2. What life lessons are you learning OR what goals do you have for yourself right now? - Right now I'm really focusing on balance. Being able to effectively juggle different things in life, and being careful not to put TOO much on my plate.

    I visited It's the Little Things - which is an awesome fashion blog, the most recent post is a to-die-for party outfit.

    I also visited Poodleism who seems to have a really cool blog. Most recent post is on Pan Am, which I have yet to check out on TV yet.

  3. My current goal is to get a slammin' topic for a dissertation. I'm having a rough time with it!

    I visited "It's the {little} things, who had the cutest fashions!

    I checked out Nesheaholic and told her my favorite type of hot chocolate (swirl!). She's doing a neat ABC's of Fall blog theme right now.

    I lastly checked out Poodleism, who is currently in love with PanAm. I don't need yet another TV show, but so many people are raving about it that maybe i should give in...?! :)

    Happy Monday!

  4. I'm happy to be back on Mingle Monday after a couple crazy busy weeks! I love the hot chocolate inspiration over on ABCs of Fall, and also enjoyed saying hi to Poodleism and Starfish. This year has been one long learning experience for me in so many ways, as I learn to focus on what really matters and make time to take care of myself while still pursuing my goals.

  5. I'm hoping to continue on the healthiness and weight loss journey I am on currently. I want to read all of Jillian Michaels "Master Your Metabolism" this week and be dilligent on eating healthy foods and not drinking anything but water for a whole week.

    I visited [Life of Love] and Laugh Until Your Cheeks Hurt.

  6. visited dear monday and love the letter she shared about viewing mondays differently for a more positive outlook to the week.

    also stopped by abcs of fall and enjoyed her post about one of my favorite things - hot chocolate!

    goal of mine right now are patience. but thats a long term and always standing goal. to be more patient with people and not allow them to get me "going" as quickly as they normally would.

  7. My goals these days are mostly fitness related. I have been eating terribly these last few weeks and really need to get back on my "good for my body" eating!

    Not really helping my goal ;), but Greer's Gossip has some delicious food...and Paula Deen! And now I'm hungry :)

  8. I'm constantly wondering how the time flies by so very fast. While I have been spending tons of time with my research projects and triathlon training, the blogosphere backlog is getting huge but I am catching up ....

    Thanks for posting another Mingle Monday, I love to meet new people in the blogosphere!

  9. I have little goals like learn French but also toying with the idea of moving away to work!!One day at a time :-)

    I visited Greers Gossip and heard of her fab weekend!!
    I also went to Laugh Until Your Cheeks Hurt and read all about her good news!!!!

  10. Happy Monday! I'm learning that things have a way of working out wonderfully if you have faith and stop worrying!

    I visited Steph's Sweet Life - she has a fun post of random things for Miscellany Monday!

  11. Hey-o! I haven't mingled in a bit and I'm loving being back! Today I checked out:

    Laugh until your cheeks hurt -- PREGNANT annoucement today! What happy news, also seems like she'll write about the whole thing with grace and humor. Can't wait to read it!

    Nesheaholic -- she's in the middle of discussing all her favorite Fall-isms and I'm such a sucker for seasonal chatter. Great fall ideas/pics!

    What life lessons/goals am I dealing with right now? UGH. IF only I had time to tell you them all. Really though, I'm focused right now on getting my fitness back on track. There's really nothing like slipping into those jeans for the first time of the season and being displeased to get me motivated. Here goes nothin'...

  12. Hi Meg! Funny that's your topic post was all about pushing myself! My current goal is to workout for 30 minutes every day on our big cruise...
    Laugh until your cheeks hurt -- PREGNANT? awesome...
    it's the little things - I want those Louboutins...oh that outfit is can dream!
    xoxo from Trinidad

    Steph's Sweet Lif

  13. I visited Laugh Til Your Cheeks Hurt and Relevant Notes. They both have big and exciting news to share!

    My goals currently focus on eating better and starting to run/get back into shape again!

  14. Happy Mingle Monday!

    Whooo I'm in grad school right now for speech pathology, and I'm learning so much about my field-about myself-about loving others-about patience-about not giving up.

    I visited Cheers, Bethani today and I loved her "states she's visited" map. I went and made one of my own!

    I also visited Laugh Until Your Cheeks Hurt, and she's pregnant! Ah that's so exciting.

  15. Just linked up with Mingle Monday for the first time, along with my running Dear Monday weekly little thing! :) My two biggest goals right now are getting in shape and getting my handmade business back up and running!

    Leslie's post at A Body That Won't Break was some good motivation for not giving up when times get tough on the fitness journey! No quitting!!

  16. I visited Learning Patience because that's the skill I need to work on. Being a military wife living in a place I do not want to be is taking a toll on me. Patience is becoming key.

    I also visited The Sweet Life to read Dear Monday.

  17. i visited jesus, bring the rain and got to see her adorable new kitten and then found out cheers, bethani and i have visited the exact same number of states. i also stopped by greer's gossip and found some yummy looking cake batter cookies to bake next weekend =)

    my biggest goal right now is to buy a house within the next 10 months or so. the hubs and i are positioning ourselves right now so we can make it happen and it's fun, exciting, and nerve-wracking all at the same time.

    happy monday!

  18. Hi Meg, glad you had such a great weekend!

    I went to visit Fumbling Grace, who wrote an open letter to all things and people that will help make her week better. Plus, she's going to Disneyland!

    I also went to Learning Patience. She had an amazing run with her hubby :)

    My biggest goal right now is recovering from injury so I can start running again.
