Mingle Monday Blog Link-up!

What a lovely, go-with-the-flow weekend.

Although the Ingrid Michaelson concert got cancelled Friday, we still made the best of the gorgeous crisp night. Saturday was kind of a whirlwind since I was on call for work, but the day shaped up as soon as my hubby came home from being out of the country.

Sunday was spent sleeping in, going to see "The Hundred-Foot Journey" (go see it - it's amazing!), and a cozy evening of comfort food and relaxation.

I sure hope yours was fantastic too, and thanks so much for dropping by to link-up your blog. Enjoy a little laid back networking and hopefully you make some new blog friendships. Now get in there!



 ** 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!
** What is one thing you want to check off your bucket list before summer ends? **
(I'm dying to go pick fresh fruit and make a tasty pie!)

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!


Cheers to a good week, my friends!

  1. I am ready for the last big weekend out before my son starts 6th grade...Myrtle Beach! Can't wait...thanks for hosting! Have a beautiful day.

  2. A picnic with my husband :)!

  3. I need a haircut, does that count? I get so busy that I never make the appointment so maybe if I make it a bucket list item ti'll actually get done haha

  4. My big To-Do was to give our kitchen a facelift (paint the walls, paint the cabinets) and this past weekend we completed it! (I posted the pics today actually) CHECK MARK! :)

  5. Ottawa just got a professional football team this summer so I'm hoping to check out a game! Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend!

  6. I really want to complete a craft project before the end of summer! I have a bunch of things waiting to get started and I'd love to make some progress on them!

  7. I really would love to have all of our inside house decorating and renovations done by Labor Day (the official end of summer to me :). We bought a fixer-upper bungalow in December and I'm so ready to be done with fixing it up :) Thanks for hosting!

  8. I want to lay on the lawn at the Nelson Atkins and soak up the sun!! This would be a good fall activity too... ;) Happy Monday!

    26 and Not Counting

  9. I want to go swimming one more time and sleep in! I go back to teaching on Friday so I am soaking up these quiet mornings!

  10. I've been meaning to go to the zoo but I might go on Wednesday! I also would love to see a free movie in one of the parks here in Chicago!

  11. My big thing about this summer was hoping to get engaged, and we did that yesterday!!! :)
    Next on my summer bucket list is getting our tattoos!

  12. I want to take a drive to the ocean. It's not like we live far...we just never seem to take the time, but this Summer is a must!

  13. bummer about the concert -- she sang our first wedding dance song!! but im glad you liked the movie! i have that book on my kindle and im determined to read it soon. xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  14. I definitely just accomplished my favorite thing on my summer bucket list every year... it is going to the Lake with friends. Although I think I also want to start/finish a book series before the summer is over... think I can do it? I do!

  15. This summer zoomed by in the blink! I had big plans...most of which have not yet been accomplished...the summer has still been great though. I'd like to catch an outdoor concert at least once before the weather cools.

  16. I've had a great summer with my little man! We've, surprisingly, accomplished a lot! Getting our home complete is definitely on the top of my list, though! ;)

  17. I bought an online leadership training membership on Groupon back in March. My goal was originally to work on it and finish this summer. Let's be honest. My new goal is to START it by the end of this summer...

  18. I would love to go on our local bike trail with the family. It ends up at Dairy Queen which is an added bonus!

  19. I definitely want to go camping before summer ends, but who know if that will happen, I'll keep optimistic :) Thanks for hosting!

    A Joyful Kind of Life

  20. Well, my summer bucket list included brewing my own kombucha and fermenting some fresh-picked veggies. BOTH of which I actually did! Whoo-hoo! First time in a long time I actually got around to doing something I had planned. :-)

  21. My son's 2nd Birthday Party and my one year anniversary!

  22. A bonfire was the last thing on my summer checklist and we had one this past weekend! :)
