Monday Mingle Blog Hop #137

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!

    I’m sure you all had a wonderful weekend with the Super Bowl this Sunday and the excitement over waiting to see if the groundhog saw his shadow.  Unfortunately, he did see his shadow so they are predicting 6 more weeks of winter.  We are scheduled to see some more snow here in New York City tomorrow so I believe that winter is still sticking around for a while.

    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.

    So happy to be “Mingling” with you again! Thanks for taking the time to make it happen!

  2. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says:

    Sometimes I just give in to the Monday blues and let myself take a good long afternoon nap. That makes Monday go faster!

  3. Now that I am semi-retired I don’t get the Monday Blues that often. Of course it is Mondays that I still have a client-but knowing that I am off Tuesday helps!

  4. Juls Nicholl Stimpson says:

    Hey there, delighted to stumble across your hop! Mine is still live if you’d like to pop on over 🙂

  5. Robin Rue says:

    Haha – I am happy on Mondays. The kids go back to school and my husband is back at work, so I get peace & quiet for 8 hours. What’s not to love?

  6. mena & taty says:

    Yes! Love finding new blog. Thanks for putting this together! Monday blues unfortunately have no cure. Patience until Tuesday rolls around for me

  7. Amanda Love says:

    I actually dread Mondays. It usually means going back to work at 5:30am and I would prefer to sleep in a little longer. Drinking a good cup of Starbucks coffee usually helps though. 🙂

  8. Lawna Young says:

    I hate Mondays and I usually just try to get through the day. One more day is one more day closer to the weekend and more time with my hub.

  9. Kay Adeola says:

    I always feel so much more tired on a monday but a cup of coffee or 2 normally helps lol

  10. JadeLouise Designs says:

    Monday blues….I struggle with this. It’s a good question. I need some help. Usually I succumb to them but I need to be more active on Mondays because it’s my biggest work day.

  11. Mondays are not cool. I am so drained from the weekend, it takes me forever to get back into the swing of things! But as soon as Monday is over, the week definitely seems to perk up a bit lol.

  12. Nicole A. says:

    I’m usually fine with mondays. Today not so much. I’ve got a huge paper due and I have no motivation to get it done.

  13. Wendy Bottrell says:

    Very cool! I don’t find Mondays any different that any other day! Enjoyable!

  14. Thank you so much for another lovely link up I will get my butt in gear one Monday but Monday is like my Sunday as the OH works Saturday then has Sunday – Thursday off lol x

  15. I try to ignore Monday at all costs. It hates me, everything bad happens on Monday

  16. Terry My Journey With Candida says:

    Reminds me of the song,… Rainy Days And Mondays. I don’t usually have the Monday Blues.

  17. I actually like Mondays, but only because they are one of my husband’s off days.

  18. I’m not a fan of Mondays but I try to think it is one day closer to Friday.

  19. Jennifer Williams says:

    I forgot about this and should have linked up earlier. I will put it in my calendar for next week Thank you for hosting.

  20. Such a fantastic idea!

    Mondays – blah. It really depends on my mood and if I was busy during Sundays lol – most of the time – I tend to just sleep it out lol (if I can)

  21. Veronica Solomon says:

    I try not to have the Monday blues. I have chosen to look at Mondays as the beginning of a new week full of potential and productivity

  22. Ashley Wintters says:

    Mondays are always so blech to me. I always let the weekend fly by so fast but Monday ALWAYS drags.

  23. Amanda McMahon says:

    I’m okay with Mondays. We don’t do a lot on weekends and the kids get to go to school 🙂

  24. So we have Sunday blues here, bc that’s when the work day begins. And there is no way to work through the blues.. :((((

  25. Michelle D. Johnson Garrett says:

    I’m that oddball that likes Mondays – a fresh start, rejuvenated, ready to begin the work week and be super awesome.

  26. Lucky for me, I don’t think I suffer from Monday Blues… I like to see it as an opportunity to start the week with a BANG!

  27. Thursdays are my Mondays. I usually try to get up a little earlier and have some time for “me” before starting a day where others need me.

  28. what a great way to meet new bloggers and find wonderful blogs

  29. TouristMeetsTraveler says:

    Ya I am good about Mondays.. but this is a great way to meet people, love it!

  30. I try to keep myself busy on Mondays, so I don’t have time for any blues! 🙂

  31. I don’t have time for the blues on Monday, it’s my busiest work day! I do a ton of scheduling that day. Otherwise, if I feel down, I drink lots of coffee!

  32. On Mondays always trying start new life, exercise and drink lots of liquid.

  33. Marielle A. Lord says:

    Since being a stay at home mom in August of last year, I don’t get Monday blues lol Unless you count the dreaded feeling I get when I have to think up lunch ideas that my son will actually eat! lol

  34. Melanie Roberts says:

    I don’t deal well with Monday blues at all 🙁 I just keep looking forward to fridays!!!

  35. thanks for the hop. some great blogs here.

  36. I don’t actually get the Monday blues but I know a lot of people do. I don’t work outside the home anymore so maybe that’s why. Lol I guess my answer is I fight it by not going into an office. Lol
