Mingle Monday Weekly Link-Up!

It's about time Mingle Monday pops up on your feed, right?
Sorry, I was on a roll this morning! I am super proud of myself for actually getting out of bed to go work out early this morning, enjoyed the awesome super light traffic flow into downtown, and then got caught up with a bunch of work!

A productive morning so far, if I do say so myself! :)

I hope you lovelies had a great weekend! I was pleasantly surprised when my hubby's flight to Washington got delayed until Sunday, so I enjoyed a weekend with that dream boat!

Sunday was lovely (aside from dropping hubs off at the airport), I got to hang with Adam's mom and extended family (love them!) and then went to a cookie exchange with my girlfriends!

A good time was had by all... and I hope your weekend was no exception!

  1. I do enjoy Starbucks and my fave drink is a peppermint mocha. Or, there's a locally owned coffee shop by my job and my favorite drink is the 'Adam Bomb' it's vanilla and cinnamon and everything else yummy all in one drink! :)

  2. Starbucks! Which... I'm pretty sure the whole internet knows this lol. And I like to mix up what drink I get. However, I have been loving the caramel brule latte lately.

  3. I love love love the Starbucks peppermint mocha ;) It's such an awesome holiday drink!

  4. Starbucks is amazing! I just wish I lived closer to one than I do! I love plain vanilla lattes!

  5. Sounds like a nice weekend! Hope you enjoy your brief time as a "single" woman again! :)

  6. Hope you had a great Monday! I love Starbucks probably way too much. My current favorite is the Caramel Brulee latte, but I also like the White Mocha.

  7. This is my first time doing any linky party. I linked my blog, but didn't do the exact link to my post!

    My fave holiday tradition is going to see my family in New Jersey, where I am originally from. I love going back home!

  8. My favorite holiday tradition is simple...EATING. Lol. And I guess it doesn't hurt to see the family ;)

  10. So many holiday traditions! Maybe putting up all of the decorations the day after Thanksgiving would be my favorite! Or going to see the light display in downtown Coeur d'Alene!

  11. Favorite holiday tradition: Waking up early Xmas morn, making a HUGE breakfast before the kiddies get up and trash the place with wrapping paper! :)

  12. I don't actually celebrate any holidays! I am a Pantheist, so I spend some time outside enjoying the universe around the solstice. It's refreshing to sleep more with the shorter days. I'm a hibernating bear in that regard!

  13. Here's my blog, it's mainly for my hand painted signs, I just started it a little while ago so I don't really have many posts.
