Mingle Monday Link-up + Engagiversary

Congrats on surviving your wild weekend plans, you crazy party animals. My wild weekend included skipping Zumba for a donut date, making a fresh blueberry pie, and watching a whole season of Glee.

Crazy, I tell you.

Before we get to mingling, I have to give a shout out to my groom. I can hardly believe he proposed 2 years ago today. It was the perfect proposal under a sea of fireworks and the beginning of our greatest adventure. Happy engagiversary, my love! #sappypost

Now let's mingle!



 ** Only 3 easy rules - that's all I ask! **

1) Link-up your blog below.

2) You must share a link to Mingle Monday on your post or the Mingle Monday photo.
3) Answer the weekly question in the comments section below and have FUN!
** How are you going to be celebrating the 4th? **
(I'm cabin bound on Wednesday, and I can hardly stand it!)


Still proud to say that 100% of advertisement sponsorship proceeds go to my charity of choice, the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge. There are dozens and dozens of Hope Lodges across the country that give cancer patients a free place to stay while out of town for cancer treatment - such a cool place! 

With just $10, you can get a month long ad and know that it is going to help real cancer patients and their families. So please join me in my fundraising effort by becoming a sponsor HERE!

  1. LOVE me some Mingle Monday. I'll be working on the 4th (womp womp) but am going to the lake for a couple of hours on Saturday! Happy engagiverary to you and your honey pie! Love that we share (almost) the same day!!

  2. Love this link up! Such a great way to start out the week! We will be swimming and BBQing for the 3rd & 4th! My little girl turns 1 on the 3rd, so we get a full weekend of fun! Happy Monday!

  3. This fourth of July we will hopefully be at a BBQ and swimming during the day followed by fireworks at night... I love the 4th!

  4. My best friend is getting married on the 5th so I will be rehearsing for it on the 4th! Hopefully I get some sparklers and a hot dog in there :)

    Also, I want to sponsor you this month! What a great idea!!

  5. We will be celebrating by attending our town's annual 4th of July parade and then a huge outdoor BBQ with friends. :)

  6. Oh how sweet! Happy anniversary to you both.

    1. Unfortunately we don't have any such fun on the 4th in the uk, but I will be on a day off and creating some exciting new items for me store. Not quite fireworks I know.

  7. I'm looking forward to a 3-day weekend! We have 2 BBQs planned this weekend. A friend of ours just bought a boat, so we're all headed out on the lake.

  8. I'm headed out of town to my husband's grandparents house for a fish fry!

  9. I'll probably go see fireworks in my old hometown- but beyond that I have no idea! My family is pretty last minute with these things. :)

  10. I'm not totally sure how I'm celebrating yet, but I have a few things up in the air! Have a great day!

  11. Cheering a friend on at the Peachtree Road Race and then fireworks at Centennial Park!

  12. Oh my goodness, engagement pictures just make my heart happy! This year the Fourth is looking like it's gonna be pretty low-key, probably just hanging out with my favorite 3 Independence Day F's: family, food, and fireworks!

  13. Happy Engagaversary!! Such a cute picture and your face is absolutely priceless! This year for the 4th I will be heading to the Jersey Shore for lunch with my family for my grandma's birthday and then perhaps the hubby and I can find some fireworks to go to because man do I love fireworks on the fourth of July!

  14. Yay happy engagement anniversay!

    We'll be celebrating both the 4th and the 5th with friends, family and fireworks.

    Enjoy your cabin!

  15. That engagement photo is pretty darn cute!
    I have yet to decide how I'm spending my 4th :/ #lateplanner

  16. You are so cute!!! I don't have any photo of me and my husband from our engagement but I have many with the decoration he had made in our home for the proposal!!
    I'm from Greece so we don't celebrate 4th!
    Whatever you gonna do to spend 4th I wish you have lot of fun!
    kisses xxx

  17. Sounds like your proposal was exciting and love your reaction. I will be going to our town park/lake to hang out and see the fireworks with the family. Thanks for hosting!

    A Joyful Kind of Life

  18. That picture is perfection! I'm in Canada so we're celebrating Canada Day this weekend, tomorrow we are going to check out some fireworks!

  19. Congrats!!! I will be celebrating with my family in Los Angeles!

  20. As pathetic as this sounds, I don't know yet! I know we are doing fireworks but we have been so busy the rest is still up in the air.

  21. I'm currently in South Korea so we'll be teaching as usual. Maybe we'll go out for dinner!
