Mingle Monday Blog Link-Up!

Anyone else on their 3rd round of caffeine?
It's definitely a Monday, and I'm trying to get myself in work week mode. Please tell me I'm not the only one dragging!

Although it was our Slimdown Challenge weigh-in day, and I've lost 4.2 lbs!  Woop woop! 
Now that's a heck of a great way to start off a Monday morning. Inching closer to healthy everyday and you can join me on the journey via MyFitnessPal!

I just wanted to say I'm glad you're here, I'm glad you're you, and thanks for taking the time to stop by to make Mondays happier! I hope you meet some great new blog friends and find a few extra readers!
Happy Mingling!

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!


Have a spectacular start of the week, sassy ladies (and guys?)!

  1. I will randomly pay for peoples drinks in the starbucks line.

  2. I am always one to open doors for other people, give compliments, or find ways to help people out, but I have never paid for anyone's meal or Starbucks or anything like that. Happy Monday!

  3. I love random acts of kindness!! Our rule whenever we do one is always that we have to leave right away so we can't see their reaction.

  4. I've actually never paid it foward. I've seen friends have it happen to them, but not me. Thanks for the reminder! I think this Friday {hello pay day!} I'll do my 1st!

  5. I love my fitness pal, such a cool app and way to keep track of everything. I've done some acts of kindness but I've always wanted to pay for somebody order in the drive they or something like that.

  6. This is actually something I've always been wanting to do, but unfortunately I have never done it. I most definitely need to pay it forward one of these days. Thanks for hosting!

    A Joyful Kind of Life

  7. Congratulations on losing 4.5 pounds, WOOT! Keep it up, you're on your way to your target goal!

    I have not paid for anyone's meal yet but the most recent one was when I was a recipient and paid it forward as well. It was one weekend morning in a packed Costco parking lot when I was flagged down and was given a spot by someone about to leave and the slot was so near the entrance. That's what I did when I left the lot too, waved at someone to take my spot!

  8. Holy moly, you go girl! That's so awesome!! :)

    26 and Not Counting

  9. I usually try to open doors for people - but I really want to start paying for people in the Starbucks line!

  10. My son and I have started this thing called the white envelope. The last time we did it was Christmas time...we had cash in white envelopes that I gave to my son. We went out in public and he found people to randomly give them to...he had to be discreet though in hopes that they wouldn't be able to "catch" him...we wanted the anonymous factor going on. Very fun!

  11. I've sent random gifts to my friends, just hey I'm thinking of you gifts. Need to do more often!
