Mingle Monday Blog Hop BACK!

Welcome back to Mingle Mondays!
Who missed this little blog hop over the last few weeks?! I know I missed it! Well, it's back to stay and will be back to regular weekly hopping!

So, did everyone have a good weekend? I sure did, but don't they just seem to fly right by? Adam was in our good friends' wedding this weekend, so we were busy!

We had the rehearsal dinner on Friday, the Cotton Bowl watch party late Friday night (unfortunately K-state couldn't pull it out, but congrats Arkansas on a great win!), and an all day wedding pallooza on Saturday.

So Sunday felt nice to relax! I slept in, deep cleaned my house from top-to-bottom, put away Christmas, and baked up a storm (Banana Choc Chip Mini Muffins recipe coming this week!

Adam and I went to the evening service at our church last night and I'm loving the "Love, Sex, Marriage" series that we're doing! After that, we went back to my place where I could make BF his favorites... Chicken Pesto Pasta (recipe coming soon!) and Megnificent Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

...and yes, major GF points were earned! The way to his heart is right through his tummy!


{ Alrighty... Let's Mingle! }


Pretty Pretty Please...

If you could find it in your big heart to pass the Mingle word along... I will love you forever and ever and ever.

In all seriousness, I truly appreciate each one of you who take an extra minute to go the extra mile for me. I cannot thank you and your sweet generosity enough!

{ Many thanks! }

    Life, Love, and Pursuits of Katie-I love first that she is a fellow North Carolinian. =) Great blog, great topics, and very easy to browse through!

    Obscure Ponderings: I loved her Dream Crusher post, I can totally relate. I also love how blunt she is. =)

    I also stopped by Whispering Sweet Nothings. She has a fantastic Boho Chic post and I love the Valentine's Day gift ideas she posted!
