Monday Mingle Blog Hop #135

Blog hop

    The time has come for another Monday Mingle. It is always a pleasure to meet those of you who are linking up for the first time and to see those of you back who have been linking up for a long time. It is so exciting to link up with you guys week after week!  It has been a while since I hosted the Mingle here at Tough Cookie Mommy due to the busy holiday season.  No worries, the Mingle will be up every Monday henceforth, I promise. 😉

    There are always exciting things going on here at Tough Cookie Mommy.  We discuss important topics, try out new products, attend great events, travel with the family and conduct exciting giveaways.  Please make sure you don’t miss any Monday Mingles and remember to subscribe via email.

    This blog hop continues to be for everyone with NO RULES. Personally, I hate having to follow a bunch of rules just to connect with all of you so this hop will continue to be RULE FREE!

    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) Please find it in your heart to follow my blog on Facebook , Google+ , TwitterPinterest or subscribe via email or BlogLovin since I am the genius who came up with this idea, plus I would really appreciate it!

2) If you leave me a comment letting me know that you are following me through Monday Mingle, 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 code in the sidebar and post it on your own blog to help spread the word.

Have a great week and a Happy New Year!


C'mon Get Crafty!

  1. Good Monday Morning Maria – I hope you and the family had a wonderful Christmas and will have a blessed and prosperous New Year!

  2. Christine @ Mama Papa Barn says

    Hola Maria. I will keep my resolutions in my heart because as soon as I say them, they are broken 🙁

  3. I don’t really make resolutions but I do stick with the things in life that work like valuing friends, meditation and remaining balanced in life.

  4. Joanna Sormunen says

    I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions because I don’t keep them. But I found about choosing a word for the year, to describe what you are aspiring and what you want to learn from God.
    My word for 2014 is joyfull 🙂

  5. Amberlee Cave says

    I never end up keeping my resolutions. Maybe this year I can.

  6. I am making a resolution NOT to make a resolution this year-I never seen to be able to keep them anyway-so I will just do what I can when I can and MAYBE cut down smoking?

  7. I used to make new years resolutions, but now im like what the heck with it LOL!

  8. I never make resolutions because I can’t stick with something that long LOL. I mean, I already eat right, don’t drink, don’t smoke and I workout, so what else is there hahaha.

  9. Jennifer Williams says

    I stopped making resolutions for some reason I never stuck to those. I changed to goals a few years back and that one little word seems to work – go figure! This years goal is to add strength training to my working out – I hate that part of fitness so we will see how it goes!

  10. JadeLouise Designs says

    My New Year Resolution is to do better with our budget, improve photography skills and declutter our home.

  11. Lawna Young says

    This New Years I am determined to get healthy and that means dieting and lots of excercise. I am getting a gym membership this weekend.

  12. Great kinky! This year I hope to bake a baby full term for once. Lol

  13. My new year’s resolutions are to overcome fear and branch out on my site.

  14. Linda Kinsman says

    I no longer make resolutions- I do however make plans and goals so I will share them: my first goal is to earn more money and my second is to get more active in my community. Happy New Year Maria!

  15. Marielle A. Lord says

    I’m already following you pretty much everywhere lol just now added you on bloglovin! Happy mingle to all! No resolution this year. I never follow them anyways!

  16. I’m fairly new to the blogging world…just following them btw, I don’t think I’d have the time for my own blog…anyway I love all the great stories, reviews, contests, etc-I especially like the fact that I’ve met some new friends! And I think the Monday Mingle Blog Hop is awesome, I’ll be here to check it out again next week for sure! So thanks! Happy New Year!!! 😉

  17. Good question. This year I am trying to get more organized. Although I have done almost everything I set out to do from last year, I could accomplish more if I were a little more organized.

  18. what a lovely way to get people mingling and commenting plus you get to find new and wonderful blogs

  19. I just really want to focus on living a healthier lifestyle when it comes to diet and exercise. No specific goals but just more awareness of what I am putting into my body.

  20. I didn’t make any new year resolutions. To me it’s just one day running into another and I never can remember to keep the ones I made. I do plan on exercising a bit more this year and eating healthier so I guess that could be mine. Happy New Year!

  21. I am more working with goals this year. I’m looking at a certain number of blog review posts per week and sticking to a lifestyle as far as my diet goes. I feel better when I follow the rules, so I have no idea why I break them!

  22. i’m not making resolutions but small goals – do 30 minutes of exercise each day i’m at home.

  23. I didn’t make any goals or resolutions, I don’t ever really. Just strive to take on each day with a positive outlook

  24. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says

    I don’t make resolutions anymore because I’m just not good at keeping them. I just fly by the seat of my pants, I guess!

  25. Courtney Pies says

    I need to stick to my resolution this year – which is losing weight!

  26. Lean Lacaba says

    I gave up on new year’s resolutions years ago, since I never seem to follow through with them!

  27. Anne White says

    I made several resolutions but they are things to finish by next year so nothing I’ve got to do this week…and they are all realistic goals I would’ve set anyways…I know I’ll accomplish them all cause I am determined! 🙂 Good luck to everyone else on theirs as well and here is wishing you all a year ahead filled with health, wealth, and happiness! <3
