Mingle Monday Blog Link-Up!

You guys.
Last week was hands down the craziest most draining work week of my life. 13 hour days starting becoming the regular, as did fast food, falling asleep in my work clothes, and no time for blogging.

And yet you still decided to drop by today, and that alone makes my heart happy. Despite my very low post frequency the past few weeks while starting my new role, I have so much goodness for you this week!! I am SO excited... back to being me & blogging about what I love. And on that note, thanks for being YOU. Enjoy!



 ** 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.

** How did you celebrate Valentine's Day? **


Hoping your Monday starts off with a delicious latte!

  1. I had a super low key valentine's day with my boyfriend, we did lunch cleaned my car and watched some TV. I hope your work week is a little lighter this week! Thanks for hosting. :)

  2. Ooh, hope you get some rest from work soon. We spent our Valentine's Day day dating. :) It was a blast, considering that after having a baby/little girl, we rarely get to take advantage of that kind of time out. Hope you enjoyed the weekend, Meg!

  3. I celebrated Valentine's Day on Friday night with dinner/drinks with my boyfriend and then Saturday I drove him to the airport because his lucky butt is going to Mexico for the week. Not fair!

  4. I went to Texas to celebrate one of my best friend's at her baby shower. It was so fuN!

    I spent it on Friday and Saturday at the Regency Romance Ball which was a jane austin theme so we all wore 1800's clothing and it was just amazing! :)

    We stayed at home with the kids! Pizza, strawberries & candy, Netflix and of course a fancy alcoholic beverage for mom!

    We celebrated with a Valentine's and Birthday combinations BBQ at my in laws house for my nephew and mother in law's birthdays. It was such a great day considering the weather here has been nothing but beautiful!

  8. It was extremely cold here this weekend, so we just hung out. My hubby made clams over linguine for dinner and bought a cheesecake sampler to enjoy. Sometimes the best thing is just to have some down time!

  9. We celebrated my husbands birthday/valentines day with family

    I spent Valentines day at work, and then we went to the outlets, had dinner and did some shopping! I hate when work takes over my life and I have no time for blogging, I hope you get some much needed rest soon!

  11. We had a rough week--my father-in-law was in a near-fatal motorcycle accident last weekend, two days after my husband started his new job in another town. We cancelled our plans to go to the American Heart Association heart ball so we could all get some rest. But we still had an awesome VDay. I made a "Love Fort" in our tv room by draping long, flowing layers of tulle from ceiling above our chairs, stringing lights and a small fountain along the ledges, sprinkling rose petals everywhere, and lighting tons of crystal-topped chalkboard candle-holders with sweet message inscriptions to my love. We popped champagne, enjoyed healthy but decadent tapas like hummus, dolmas, and roasted pecans, and watched Casablanca. A much-needed connection after quite a week!

    Take care of yourself this week, Meg--remember that a healthy you makes for better work!

  12. yikes! i hope this work-week is better and things slow down. we celebrated valentines day with a realllly tasty brunch date :) xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  13. Your weekend looks awesome. My parents were here for this week. So i and hubby went for a long week in the evening for some quality time. Have a great week ahead !

    I was surprised with a romantic getaway to Kansas City for the weekend. We ate at The Cheesecake Factory and went on a helicopter ride over the city lights at night.

  15. We were flying home with our kids from vacation on Valentines Day. Not too romantic but we were with each other and we survived the journey, so I consider it a success!

  16. All of my grandiose plans of making a romantic meal flew out of the window when my husband and I found out three of our family members (two cousins, my sister) were spending Valentine's Day alone, so we invited them for pizza and gin rummy! Ended up being the perfect night!!!

  17. You have a great excuse for being so busy last week. Congrats on the grand opening and all your hard work!!

    I had to work on Valentine's Day and the husband's in Texas, so no celebration here. Your celebration is my idea of the perfect night tho!

    Can't wait to see you on Sunday!


  18. We celebrated in Brussels with friends....lots of walking, capuccinos & yummy food.

    If you get a moment, I'd love to have you join the link up party at Reasonstodress where I am cohosting this week with the lovely Angie.


  19. We had a super relaxing Valentine's Day - ordered in Indian food, snuggled on the couch, and had a Netflix binge! It was perfect!
