Isn't this fun, blog hopping all over the place? I love bumping into blogs I would have never seen otherwise. Of course, then I wind up with Waaaayyyy too many in my feed reader.... LOL!

My party post is up HERE- I hope you'll stop by and say hello! :)

The Not So Perfect Housewife said...

Same to you Molly. Enjoy :)

I'm still hoppin' around one blog to another while watching Kenny Chesney on Oprah!! This is very addicting. Must bring my girl to the dog park soon but will be back later tonight!

Happy blog-hopping ladies ♥

Stopping by from the party! What a great blog.

bigguysmama said...

You have a beautiful site! Sigh... I am sooo NOT a fashionista. I've been wanting to be lately, but it may be a bit late for me! LOL Some people got it, others don't. *grin* I need a LOT of help. Hoping one day someone will take pity on me and teach me all I need to know. LOL

I would've given anything to be on the racetrack like your other post! How awesome.

Thanks so much for stopping by my site Woven by Words.


Sarah Burns said...

Aloha! First, you and your hubby are a gorgeous couple! From Canada to Florida...WOW, quite the move! And my mother in law is Monique too! Love your name. :)

So great to meet you Monique!


Lizzie said...

Hey Monique, thanks for stopping by my vlog. And I don't know why you're not vlogging - you beautiful girl!! You and Hockey boy are too cute. If you ever want vlogging tips just let me know - I've got several vlogs on "how to vlog" on my site as well.

Natalie said...

Thank you so much for stopping by! Isn't this party fun?! :) I agree! Mary kay's concealer is great! I love so many of their products (I guess its a good thing I sell it!). I love your blog! :) I hope you enjoy the party! :)

Monique said...

Hi all! Sorry, I've been busy packing.. I'm moving on Thursday and certainly don't wanna be last minute!

JDaniel, you've done a great job with your blog. I agree, it's fun to connect with people!! Love the 4 R's :) Happy UBP!

Mimi "bigguysmama"... How can you manage 3 blogs with 4 kiddos?! I have a hard time keeping up with my blog plus my pup haha! You have such a lovely family. Sitting at Nascar just so happened to be luck "was there at the right time". Fun! Good job listing all the blogs you've visited on your site!

Sarah, thank you so much for the kind words. Yes, I know from Canada to Florida?! Well, I met my husband when he played hockey in my hometown. One thing led to another and here I am :)
I might make it over to the vlog world one day haha...

Lizzie thank you so much..! It's lack of confidence to get on the vlog world train I guess lol!!! I will certainly check out your vlogging tips!

Natalie, yes... the UBP is awesome.

Cheers and happy blog-partying!!!

Cathy said...

Hi Monique! I am loving this party and meeting so many new people! Thanks for stopping by my blog as well! I am so jealous that you live in Florida(someday, I will, too.) Look forward to visiting your blog again!

Vera said...

Thanks for stopping by, it's great to meet you! Your Shadow is gorgeous!! We had a Shadow dog, who was very dearly loved too.

Monique said...

Cathy, Florida has been simply amazing since we moved here 1 year ago!! Make your way down here and you'll love it ❀

Thanks Vera! Shadow is wonderful and we adore her. Sweet that you had a Shadow as well.

liz said...

Hey Monique,

Thanks for the visit and compliments. I have a good friend whose husband is a coach in the NBA and they move constantly, too. It's definitely a different mindset, but you have to think of each move as a new adventure and life experience.

Hope @ It's a Vivas Thing! said...

Hopping over from UBP 2010! Love your banner! What a beautiful couple you are!

Melissa said...

Hi! Just popping in for the party!
Wow! From Canada to Florida! That's quite a jump! I've been a Northern US'er my whole life... I've only been down south once or twice in all my 29 years.

Thanks for stopping by the fake/virtual party at Tales from the Motherhood and Confessions of a Childhood Actress. Sorry I am late to your party. I am just still recovering from all that wild partying. I grew up with a German Shepherd. What a great breed. Our dog was so sweet. Now I have 3 small kids so just can't handle a dog yet. Too much work for mom.
I think the two tone paint job on your wall really highlights those light switches. Leave it.
Oh yea, and if you like fashion - come by my blog on Saturdays. The fashion tips are off the hook.
