Monday Mingle Vlog: Foodie Version January 31, 2011

Is it just me, or do the weeks just fly by?! I can’t hardly believe it’s time for another Monday Mingle with Eighty MPH Mom!  That’s right- time to grab your favorite hot beverage and get that camera ready.  Monday Mingle is where bloggers can get together every week and answer three questions through a vlog or blog post about themselves.  Today, we’re talking about food- one of my absolute fave topics!  Here are the questions for this week’s Monday Mingle:

  1. What is one food or drink you cannot live without?
  2. Are you a foodie? Do you like to cook or are you a food blogger?
  3. What is your one easy family friendly recipe, or amazing supersecret recipe that you are known for? Share it here if it isn’t a closely guarded family secret.

Check out my vlog to hear the answers!

I look forward to seeing some of you join us this week whether you feel comfortable vlogging or blogging your answers!  I hope your Monday is off to a fantabulous start!

Monday Mingle Vlog January 24, 2011

Happy Monday everyone!  It’s another day of Monday Mingle with Eighty MPH Mom where bloggers get together and learn about each other through answering three questions about themselves on video.  Last week was my first week and it was a blast connecting with other bloggers through vlogging so here I am again participating in this week’s mingle!  Check out my vlor my below to hear my answers to this week’s questions:

1. If you could “undo” one thing in life, what would it be?
2. For MPH, do you say miles per hour or mile per hour?
3. Do you say potato as po-TAY-to or po-TAH-toh and tomato as to-MAY-to or to-MAH-to? How do you say coupon?

I hope to see some of you join us in the fun! Remember, Monday Mingle is also now open for people to participate with a blog post rather than video post if you’re not comfortable vlogging. You have a wonderful day now!

Monday Mingle- January 17th (vlog)

It’s Monday and I’m joining for the first time with Eighty MPH Mom in her weekly Monday Mingle meme.  It’s basically a meme where bloggers can get together and answer three questions about themselves every week.  I had been meaning to join in for awhile now and get back into vlogging so I figured this would be one of the best ways to go about it!

This weeks questions are:

  1. How do you feel about doing fun challenges for Monday Mingle every once in awhile? Like take a video of yourself trying to blow the shell off of a hardboiled egg (just an example
  2. Who is one of your heroes and why do they inspire you?
  3. What was the best TV sitcom ever?

Check out the vlog to hear my answers to the questions above!

This was fun and a good change of pace! Please join us in getting to know one another!
