Mingle Monday Blog Link-Up!

Happy Monday, y'all
Please raise your hand if you could have used about 3 more days attached to your weekend. Oh good, I'm not alone. Where did the weekend disappear to?

Last week was hands down the craziest/busiest week/weekend I have had in awhile. Some fun things, but a lot of work things (hurray for being on call...) so it's Monday and I'm already exhausted. This week I am planning to set some boundries, take time to relax, and get my life back in order. I'd rather just hire a maid and personal assistant, by Lord knows I am living the non-profit salary life! ;)

Thank you for stopping by today. That alone helps ease my Monday blues. Looking forward to catching up with you, friends!



 ** 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 do you ease a bad case of the Monday blues? (read: HELP!) **

  1. LOTS of water [with lemon if you can grab it], fun dance party station on pandora, and lots of gratitude for the day. <3

  2. I always try to get some sort of activity in - I feel like it sets the tone for the week! I had so much fun with you yesterday! Thanks again for everything :)

  3. Working out definitely helps and lots of coffee!

    It is hard to find those moments to relax I know. I find I have to totally remove myself from any screens to do it. I hope you have a rejuvenating week and thank you for the link up.


  5. I hope the rest of your week slows down! Its such a bummer when the weekend is so busy and you do not have time to recharge! Good luck :)

  6. Oooo good idea! I just turned on fun music on Spotify and it's helping me get out of my slump! :) Thanks!!

  7. You are so smart! I need to get in some activity today to lift my case of the grumps. Thank YOU for such a fun day and catching up! Hope to see you SOON and have an awesome week!

  8. That's absolutely what I need to do then. I have a massive cup of coffee and maybe I need to get moving to shake up things a bit. Thanks for the tips, Noe! Hope your weekend was great! :)

  9. You're so sweet - you are very welcome for the link-up. Thank YOU for stopping by, Cherie!!

  10. Ahhh Chelsea, thank you! I hope this week is much more laid back with plenty of time for R&R. I need to recharge these batteries of mine! Thank for dropping by!

  11. With kids Monday is actually easier than Fridays! I try to make sure I get up the first time the alarm goes off and have a cup of coffee with some quiet time before I get busy.

  12. I feel ya girl! I instagrammed this quote: "Make today count. You'll never get it back." It's my motivation for the day - to make the most of it even when I don't feel like it. Hope this week slows down for ya!

    You just pray and pray that the week goes fast!! ;)

    If I'm having a horrible Monday, I usually will eat a yummy cookie then go to the mall and look at all those cute things I want and maybe spoil myself a little and that should cure any bad mondays. You can also take a good nap and a really good long bath :)

  15. I re-read portions of my fave book off the moment! (At Home With Madam Chic by Jennifer Scott currently!)

    Getting through the Monday Blues...that's a tough one. I try to keep myself busy so the day passes quicker and I make my coffee extra strong and extra large! I also workout in the morning to get it out of the way and make me feel like I started the week off right! :)

  17. I usually look forward to a TV show that night:) This Monday is a lot easier, because we find out if the baby is a boy or girl this afternoon! I CANNOT WAIT!!!

  18. I love taking 15 minutes to listen to a podcast or watch a motivational video! I normally follow this up by journalling for a bit! Hope you have a great week!
    xo, Laura

  19. I am right there with you, so I'm not sure how much help I am...why can't 3-day weekends be an EVERY weekend thing?! Anyway, I try to survive Mondays by keeping them as open as possible (if I have a choice, scheduling-wise, I try not to schedule meetings/calls/etc on Mondays...if I have a choice). I also try not to worry too much about my to-do list and just ease myself into the work week. Tuesday is when I really start to crack down and get into GSD mode :)
    Hope the rest of your Monday goes better!!

    A cup of coffee, a prayer of thanks and a Bible verse helps my view of the day.

  21. Getting a little workout in, even if its just 10 minutes of yoga, always helps me feel better. And caffeine.

    Coffee, exercise, and time in the Word of God! All three are a must but the last one is non-negotiable!!! :) Thanks so much for hosting!

  23. I try to start my Monday in a positive way, usually food motivates me and having most things done, if the weather is in my favour, that usually does the trick too! :)
