Mingle & Jingle!!!

Stop by and check out/follow Mack’s awesome mingle and jingle, everyone! Leave a link to your blog there too & meet more bloggers! She has some great recipes to share. Her blog has become one of my favorites! Feel free to spread the word! Thank you!

Welcome to my first ever hosted Meet & Greet! Come on in, make yourself at home, and meet some amazing new people 🙂

Simply leave your link to your blog/other social media in the comments, tell us a little about your blog if you want, make some new friends, and reblog only if you wish!

In my last post I asked you all what your favorite type of cookie was- and there was a reason for this!! I did my Christmas baking this weekend and used all your suggestions to try something different from my usuals.

Hence, at this Mingle & Jingle, I have your favorite treats (which quickly became my favorite too!). Thank you for allowing me to expand my horizons this Christmas baking season; I loved the different traditions that I learned about and incorporated. Plus everything was absolutely delicious!!!!

    Oh yes us too…we don’t do drama and stay to our self for most part but every once in awhile even with us staying at home not seeing anyone you know the so called friends want to drop our name into something..we just laugh it off…so drama free for sure is the best …
    Oh yes gurl get a real tree …the smell and so pretty…
    well you busy gurl…now is your time to chill….that is what I am doing too…I was pretty busy today getting bills paid and cards out …just waiting on a late,late dinner since no one was hungry at the normal time for dinner lol…it happens a lot here …lol…better half made homemade chili and smells so good…and still cool here so perfect time…

  3. Hi Sue! Hope you’re alright! Ugh drama sucks! I try to stay away from it as much as possible. I’m finally completely better, just getting ready for Christmas still! Lol. I need one or two more gifts still. I want to buy a real tree but maybe tomorrow. I was busy almost all day! I finally get to chill!

  4. Aww that is wonderful that he is out for Christmas and you guys can spend
    even more time together…
    gurl the ups and downs we all know are normal don’t we lol…I just wanted to make sure that you were happy didn’t mean to imply other wise …We just had family members leave Florida again they didn’t like it …its more of them making up there mind on where they are happy and they can’t since they are not happy with each other…its one of my dads brothers from Vermont and they just got married and oh it is a mess lol..long story..but them together she is taking him for a ride and the whole family sees it but him…anyways…
    That would be nice to have a choice of what home to stay in and a different state …I have an aunt that lives in Florida (ment to say that above) and they love it…
    I agree that would be hard leaving your family but maybe if you do move they can come and visit often for vacations…it is a hard decision for sure…seems life and decisions are getting harder to make..for us anyways lol…
    Yeah our town is pretty relaxing but gurl does it have its drama lol..we stay out of it and some how our names are put in lmao…we stay put at home and even then our name sometimes gets brought up …gotta love lil towns…lol…
    OH SO HAPPY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR COLD AND YOU GETTING BETTER…power of prayers…

  5. Hi Sue! 🙂 Thankfully, he’s out for Christmas break! We’ve been spending time together today and yesterday. We’ve had our ups and downs in almost 4 years but we work through it. It’s hard sometimes but I’m happy with him. He says he wants to stay here but get another home in Florida. I’m down with that. Hell at this point I wouldn’t mind leaving but I have to consider my son and family. Your town sounds sort of relaxing. My cold finally went away! I’m just a little bit stuffy but I feel much better! Talk to you soon, Sue! Hugs! 💖

  7. Hi Sue! We went to a steakhouse last night. It was alright but they didn’t cook my food right! I still ate it because I didn’t want to send it back. Lol. We like all kinds of food! It’s really hard that he’s in school. I’m trying my best to be very patient and supportive though. We’ve had so many ups and downs in our relationship so Idk hopefully it works. He tells me he wants to move to another state after he finishes so idk I guess we’ll see. I just take life one day at a time. Nothing is guaranteed. I’m just thankful for everything I have.

    Yes!!!…very long all one length…omg I used to too have it in a bob…just like you said so much easy…well when our guys start fixing our hair than they can tell us how long or short to have it hahaaha…oh the good ol days of 25.00 for a cut…heck when my hair was not near as long maybe just past my shoulders it was 100.00 so I can’t imagine the price now…we have a friend that does it but she still charges me full price and when she did my bf no charge lol..but now for the last 6-7 years I cut dads and bf they love it and say its better than the shop and cheaper lol..in fact I need to chop the heads off this weekend if I get to it after the tree or before lol…
    I agree that is enough for today lol…pace urself…lol…reminds me I need to wipe down the bathroom…

  9. It’s a Dell. I really like it! Lol he told me to take it that day! Lol. Oh I’m so sorry about your family situation. I have some not so nice family too but I don’t care anymore. They no longer exist to me. Wow, your hair is really long! I have mine like a bob. I love it because it’s easy! I just wash It, dry and that’s it! Lol. It takes like 10 minutes, sometimes even 5! My boyfriend asks for me to grow it but hell no! Lol. I had it down to my shoulders when I met him almost 4 years ago. I had bangs and layers. It was a pain! My haircut is $25. Yea I pretty much finished cleaning. I cleaned my room, the living room and bathroom. Lol. I need to finish with the kitchen and a couple of other things. That’s enough for today. We’re going out to eat later. My bf goes to nursing school so I don’t see him everyday. He had 4 exams so he had to study a lot. He has lots of homework too so when we get back he’ll start doing it.

  10. Kool what kind or brand did he get you???..that was sweet of your bf..and you are using it before Christmas ohhh bad, bad you lol jk..
    Don’t feel bad no decorations up or anything here either lol just a tree lol with no decorations lol…
    We used to play that game when we at moms side of the family that we no longer get along with and have nothing to do with them..they are to hateful and rude and mean and…..the onetime I played it was by numbers and you got to pick a gift out of the gurl pile…well they skipped me and my mom at the time said hey suzette got skipped and she should be next and they just ignored her and mom got up to pick her gift from the female pile and got a bunch of hair clips and bows things for hair but mom had really short hair so she said here suzette take this and before I could my cousin girlfriend took it from mom since you could take one gift away and then the other person gets to go again like mom got too..I do not miss that family for all the hurt and lies and how they used dad and mom…long story but they are just not nice…to put it nicely ..lol..
    Yes it is hard to shop for men..but they both are easy going and I thought of things they really need instead of wanting…I hope to have the funds just for a few things each…I would love a haircut but that is way to much money….since it;s so long..passed my hips…last time I had my bf cut straight across the back and I did the bangs everyone liked it lol ..I usually cut my own hair but now being so long he would have to do it lol…even my bangs are the same length as my back of my waist…but I am not paying over 200.00 for a damn hair cut….but again I think i will have him do the back and I am thinking of bangs again….damn these decision lol…
    Oh good company…just made a fresh batch of hot coco too..♥☻
    Well see you did get work done..now you can rest or take it easy lol…

  11. Yes I have a laptop. My boyfriend got it on Black Friday and gave it to me. It’s my Christmas present 🙂 He got a really good deal on it. I haven’t decorated or done any shopping, only for my son. His birthday is on the 13th. My family does a gift exchange so we buy one gift for the name we got. I just need to get that gift, some other things for my son and something for my boyfriend. Yea it’s hard when there isn’t money. Socks and slippers are great! It’s so freaking hard to shop for a man! LOL. It’s always the same stuff! Enjoy the hot cocoa my friend. I will have some with you 🙂 I don’t feel so bad, I cleaned a little.

    My better half likes to make the sweets and does a amazing job I should have been taking pictures and post on my blog lol but most are gone now into my belly lol…maybe the next thing he makes I will post…but he usually makes several things at once…and some are just from the package and not homemade but other when we have the extra cash are homemade …when dad makes his famous fudge I may post that since it is homemade and so good that our one friend always gets a special box filled with it…
