Monday Mingle #31


    Hello, Everyone! Tomorrow is the 4th of July and I bet everyone is excited about celebrating our independence as well as having the day off for the long weekend! It is always nice to connect with all of you here for Monday Mingle.

ATTENTION:  I have been nominated as one of the Top 25 NYC Moms at Circle of Moms.  I would really appreciate it if you took the time out to vote for Tough Cookie Mommy.  You can vote daily by clicking on the button below.

Simply scroll down until you see the box for Tough Cookie Mommy and cast your vote by clicking on the “vote” button. Thanks so much!

I hope you are all ready for a great week of networking. So please link up and follow each other on Google Friend Connect, Facebook, or Twitter. Monday Mingle will always be easy and fun because nobody wants to follow some boring list of blog hop rules. Here are the rules:


1) Don’t forget to follow my blog on Google Friend Connect since I am the genius who came up with this idea, plus I would really appreciate it!

2) Leave me a comment letting me know that you are following me through Monday Mingle so I can follow you back.

3) Follow as many blogs as you would like from the Linky and make sure that you comment that you found them through Monday Mingle so they can follow you back.

4) Please note that this is a family blog. Any text that is inappropriate or deemed inappropriate by me will be removed. I reserve the right to remove anything that I feel conflicts with the overall theme of my blog.

5) Have fun and Mingle!

6) Feel free to snag the Monday Mingle button below and post it on your own blog to help spread the word.

Have a wonderful and productive week!

    As Monday Mingle we at Monday’s Music Moves Me also have rules.  I do not see any video or link pertaining to music nor do I see our button unless I’m not looking in the right place.  Can you let me know if this was a mistake or maybe I’m not looking in the right place.  If that is the case I shall leave you on our linky if not you shall be DELETED!  Many of our readers go visiting the next day (as I am doing), so I advise you let me know so you won’t miss out on followers.  thanks!

  13. Hi Maria,

  14. Following you from the Sunday Funday Hop!
