Mingle Monday Blog Link-Up!

Hey y'all!
Welcome back to the week day grind. Everyone doing okay this morning? Aside from freaking out when I found a tiny spider on my robe (nooooo!), the rest of the morning has been unexpectedly pleasant. I woke up looking rested, the morning went smoothly, and all green lights. How lucky can a girl get on a Monday?

It's all about the little things.

Thank you so much for dropping by. It was fun getting a glimpse at your weekends via Instagram. We had a great weekend - lots of fun activities with the fam, slept in like middle schoolers, got some outdoorsy time in, and enjoyed relaxing - you can check out the madness here. 

Thanks for dropping by to Mingle today! Will you help me spread the word? The more the merrier - can't wait to catch up!

    Having a spider in your robe is NO way to start off your week! Ha! It can only go up from here.

  2. I mean, for real!! I was only half way awake when I looked down, and let's just say I was fully alert after that! ;) Thanks for linking up, Jaime!

  3. We haven't done much gardening yet (since our focus has been on updating and re-doing the inside of the house), but I did buy a basil plant, so I'm hoping that takes off! It smells amazing!

    Thank you for your link up Meg. My favorite perennial flowers that come back every year, despite me not having a green thumb, are peonies.

  5. Hi Meg! Glad you had a great weekend! It's a typical Manic Monday here! And I can't grow a thing if my life depended on it!

  6. It seems that African Violets are the only plants I can grow! I have tons of success with them but not much else lol

  7. YES! I have a green thumb. I have a huge yard filled with perennials!

  8. Sounds like a perfect weekend, and it's wonderful to feel refreshed on Monday, rather than tired. But the spider...NOOOO!! That's not cool!
    I wish I had a green thumb, but unfortunately I'm terrible at keeping plants alive. We have two houseplants and my husband took over caring for them--he said if he didn't they'd die :)

  9. No green thumb here, but the Hubby is actually really good at that! I lucked out!

    We usually plant a little garden. The thing I love to plant the most is herbs. I just love using fresh herbs right out of my garden when I cook.

  11. Oh, I am terrible with plants. I kill them every time. But, if I did have a green thumb, I would really love to have a small vegetable and fruit garden. We've grown things in the past, like bell pepper and raspberries. Thanks for the link up!

  12. I'm with you!! I love my succulents. I have a cacti/succulent garden right now and I'm such a geek I've named them :)

    Thanks for the link-up!

  13. I kill EVERYTHING! I can't even grow an ivy.

  14. I love pretty plants and flowers and have the best of intentions but ... let's just say keeping them alive/remembering to water is NOT my strong suit!

    ReplyDelete
  15. You're off to a great start, Jenn! You'll be whipping out pesto and caprese salad before too long! :)

  16. Hey Cherie - thanks for dropping by! I would love to link-up with Shoe and Tell, but I'm afraid that I am not much of a fashionista - I wish I was! And oh my goodness, I'm with you - love love love peonies!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Happy Monday, Laura! I hope your typical Monday turns around really soon! Haha, I hear you on growing plants, although I am really trying this year! I WILL keep them all alive!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love African Violets - so pretty! And hey, if one thing works for you, why divert the game plan, right? Grow violets grow!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh Amy, I am so jealous - teach me your ways! What are your favorite easy to grow flowers/plants! Help! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Definitely not cool! He just creepy crawled down my sleeve and I was not awake for that. Heebie jeebies! Haha, our husbands sound alike! I figure maybe if we tag team it, we can keep SOMETHING alive!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. You got so lucky, lady! I need a hubby gardener! But unfortunately I think we have the same green thumb level... *sigh* :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh Penny, yes! Herb gardens make everything smell amazing and make food that much better! I need to get on top of this herb garden idea - thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh goodness. No I do not have a green thumb and to be honest, I am terrified of spiders...I was walking to a winery last weekend and saw a tarantula and almost cried, so yeah, no green thumb for me out of fear of seeing spiders...

  24. If you can tackle bell peppers and raspberries, you can handle anything!! I'm with you, I would love to grow a luscious veggie and fruit garden with a little section for herbs, but I feel like I need to take a class on how NOT to fry your plants :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. A gal after my own heart! Succulents are the only thing I can keep alive (hurray for not needing to water often!) and they always look so pretty! Love them!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hahaha - this made me crack up! It sounds like you have a "black thumb" like me! Licensed to kill plants in 50 states :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. We are the same person. I really really want to keep my plants alive but I tend to forget to water or put part sun plants in 9+ hours of beaming down sun until they shrivel up. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. A tarantula?!?! No no no no NO!
    I don't know how you even walked in there! Yes, it was just a little tiny thing, but I was flying around like a crazy person the second I saw it.

    We garden all year around in our house and outside. We do the Hydroponics and it's the best for when you have winter just grow them inside your house! :)

  31. I love plants! I like to think I have a green thumb, but not all of the time unfortunately!
    Houseplants are my thing because that last all year around! I love the "Praying Hands" plant! Although, I am proud to say that we just planted a box garden yesterday, cannot wait for the fresh veggies to arrive!

  32. I love growing tomatoes! They are tasty and grow pretty easily. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sadly, I do NOT have a green thumb...lol. I just give my plants to my grandma when they begin to die and she nurses them back every time :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Haha! Thats exactly what I do. The bell peppers and raspberries were actually grown by my sister who has the best green thumb ever. I think all the green thunbness got given to her. : (

  35. Whatever grows naturally in your zone will grow just as well in your yard. Watch what blooms in the wild, and make note. Daylilies, black eyed susans, ferns, and golden rod are some of my favorites. The real trick, is to keep them under control once they take off!

  36. Can't grow anything...tried many times from flowers to gardens. Spend way to much money trying and time wasted. So I support my local farmers! Thanks for hosting! Spiders, oh I would have freaked!
