Monday Mingle Blog Hop #136

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!

    Many of you have been emailing me and asking me to continue to post the Monday Mingle every week.  I love networking with you all and will make sure I post it every Sunday evening from now on.

    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.

  1. Thanks for hosting! Following you on FB and Pinterest

    [email protected] of the Best Things in Life are Mistakes

  2. Thank you, this is definitely an honor because I enjoy your blog and following along with you and your family fun and nope, I’m not a “hater” just a “motivator”! Have a wonderful week at school.

  3. Lawna Young says

    I love that there are no rules. A lot of hops are so strict, so it’s nice that you aren’t like many of the others.

  4. Jennifer Williams says

    Thank you for hosting the hop. I find a lot of great new blogs this way. My goals for they year just changed and I can not share how just yet. Lets just say my new goals are a lot better and going to bring on a lot of changes!

  5. I’m heading to SC on Wednesday, so I just want to get there & get back and hope that my husband can follow my VERY detailed list of things to do while I am gone. It’s only 2 days, but I hope he can follow his instructions 🙂

  6. Terry My Journey With Candida says

    I hope to get more exercising in for myself. With my Hubs recovering from surgery, I am not keeping up as well as I would like to.

  7. I am going to hopefully, weather permitting, get the last of the year end chores done for one of my clients (the others are finished)-AND I am going to start getting my taxes together, which means I have to go through a lot of unopened mail (most of which is junk) to find the stuff I need!

  8. This monday mingle is such a great idea! 🙂 Well, this week – mostly I just want to be able to follow through to my diet, be able to work out from my own plan and really be more productive and hopefully, not to use too much money so I can save lol!

  9. Melanie S. says

    I was already following you on most things, but I just added you on google and blog lovin! I’ve been sick lately, and now I have a lot of work to catch up on. I hope I can get it all done this week in addition to all the stuff around the house that needs to get done!

  10. Nicole Adkisson says

    I’m hoping to get some more deep cleaning done in the house. I also have a list of craft projects I’d like to make a dent in.

  11. I just need to get the house in order and cleaned. Get the rest of the summer garden planted ( seeds) It’s got to be done all this week !

  12. amanda ripsam says

    oh what a awesome idea. I would love to see the sergon tomorrow which I am doing and get a set date and time to have my sergery. I am wanting it done and over with like yesterday. We been busting butt cleaning and organizing. I have a few basket’s of laundry that I have to put away in my closet and dressers and I would also like to pair down my clothes I have way to many and I like to donate them. I’m stuck inside today minus the few minutes I’m going to let bella go out side for a few minutes but we got a snow day.

  13. I’m hoping to practice piano every day, and make cupcakes for a friend’s baby shower. 🙂

  14. Thanks for the link-up! 🙂 And this week I plan on getting out and walking every day. After all, I DID buy new sneakers last week for that purpose – time to break them in!

  15. Thanks for sharing this link-up. This week I’m planning on working on my twitter. It’s my least favorite social media so I neglect it.

  16. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says

    I have some cooking and baking I’d like to get done early in the week so I can relax at week’s end!

  17. I really need to get back on board with some hops I seem to have neglected them of late.

  18. Thanks for hosting the blog hop! I’m following 🙂

  19. BabsProjects says

    I have a whole list to finish which includes a review and one blog post in this week. I also have to make and add some items for my ETSY shop. Not sure if all of this will be done.

  20. Maria Sinclair says

    Thank you for hosting. I love reading new blogs that I can connect with.

  21. Sharon Pate says

    I actually stopped by from another blog hop, Creative Mondays. I am hoping to update my website this week. It is on my to do list. Great visiting your blog.


  22. I used to participate to so many hops back then but when I started facebook hops, I kind of stop. I might consider joining again.

    Did not accomplish much as I got sick.

  23. Veronica Solomon says

    Oh gosh! This week is a busy week of consultations with new prospects and working on existing projects, plus networking online and face to face. I should look into this blog hop

  24. JadeLouise Designs says

    This week, I have a lot of cleaning to catch up on, some work, and a little packing. Not to mention get some kids over some illness. Lots to do. 🙂

  25. I have a PT Test this week and I’m really hoping to ace it so I don’t have to take another one in 6 months. Wish me luck! 🙂

  26. I am trying to get myself organized this week so that when I go back to the midwest next week I am not pressed for time. I need to catch up on some work for my website also.

  27. Kay Adeola says

  28. i hope this week to get all my reviews done and schedule so i don’t get behind over the weekend

  29. This week is going to be the week I get ahead! I own my site plus I’m editor-in-chief for two others, so I feel like I’m always “just caught up,” as in writing posts tonight that go live tomorrow! I want to get to the point where I’m a week ahead, so this week is about getting there!
