Would you like to submit a question for Monday Mingle? I will link to you and your blog when your questions are posted. Please submit your questions/ideas using this form:

Monday Mingle will publish at 3:00 p.m. each Sunday – so you can link up before Monday morning!  Have you missed a few Monday Mingle or two?  You can catch up on previous mingles by clicking the link above.

We had 32 minglers last week – woo hoo!  We were also graced with the presence of TWO bloggers who will be featured in the Hottest Blogger Calendar – congrats Toni and Greg!

This week’s questions were:

1.  Do your kids have chores? Do you pay them to do chores?
2.  Were you in Girl Scouts/Brownies or Boy Scouts? Are your kids? Favorite Girl Scout Cookie?
3. Does your family go camping? If so, do you have a funny/interesting experience?

Next week’s questions submitted by Greg from Telling Dad!:
1. If you were forced to choose between skydiving, base jumping off a skyscaper, or rock climbing, which would you choose?
2. Are you an aggressive or defensive driver?
3. Due to a sour economy the genie can only grant you ONE wish. What would it be?

    Oh my, a tornado through my capsite would be the END of my camping days. SCARY!!!!!

    Happy birthday to your son!! 🙂

    I loved your co-mingler this week.

  2. Your daughter is a beauty like you!

    We should get paid for our chores, Jennifer, we should!

    Unloading the dishwasher is the absolute most despised job in my house. I hate it, hate it, hate it!

  3. JamericanSpice on

    It's great to see you both! Yes she is a doll! Why am I peeking around the camera to see her? 🙂

    Did you enjoy being in girl scouts? and I guess you don't have to answer my cookie question then huh 🙂

    Your hair is up, does that mean your thumb is getting alot better?

    That is scary about fire blowing across the camp with that tornado, but it gives you an interesting tale ja.

    I'd want to camp close to a river if I have to rough it.

    But yes my idea of camping would be a hotel 🙂 …maybe an RV. But if you live in my country in certain areas, it's almost like camping all your life!

    Ahh look at the pretty smiles.

    I was wondering if invisilign really worked. I want to try it.

    Enjoy your week gals!

  4. One Cluttered Brain on

    Happy Birthday–Speedy's girl, right?
    March is a good month for birthdays. (psst. It is my birthday also on March–YEAH!)
    Anyhoo, I love the fact that both you and your daughter mingled this week!
    I'm not a big fan of camping either. I like my showers hot and all. lol.
    My mingle will be up later tonight, K?
    Just had to get my fix in for a little bit. 🙂

    And isn't that WONDERFUL that Toni and Greg won hottest blogger?
    They ROCK!
    Talk to you later via the mingle!

  5. I had plenty of chores, and yup, passed it onto my kids. It's a right of passage.

    Never went camping. Like you, my parents weren't into it. Does sleeping outside in the yard count?

    Did the cubbie scout thing, but dropped out when Boy Scout age rolled around.

  6. Mrs. Fish aka Two Fish on

    I totally agree we don't get paid…SUCKS!! You and Speedy Girl crack me up! I am so sorry I missed last week my brain was GONE. OY

    Yes we LOAD up on the cookies…its an obsession I tell you. LOTS of cookies.

    HA HA on camping. I totally love camping and yes LOUD campers suck. Oh girl we totally rough it…like creek water and whore baths washing the dirty bits and that's it. LOL

    You two crack me up. I love you woman and totally missed commenting last week…sigh. Muwah!!

  7. I was so excited to come back and mingle for my second week that I couldn't wait till tomorrow to get it posted!! Your daughter is such a beauty, just like her momma:) I love camping and can't wait for our first trip that is scheduled for May. Hope you have a great week.

  8. Mellisa Rock on

    Happy Birthday to your son I missed that in my video — WOW a tornado – since I am from OK, we have them almost every year — and they are always terrifying. Glad that you were able to remember some fun things even if you won't be doing it again.

    Happy Monday Mingle. Thanks for moving my button — I am hoping that I get a few more giveaway entries on my MckLinky from that…I have been using your list to list my giveaway's for a few months – it was passed to me from another blogger and I have in turned passed the link to others.

  9. Tammi @ My Organized Chaos on

    Awe, I love your mingling buddy. How perfect since she related to all of the questions.
    OMG, a tornado! That would be awful in a campsite, glad you weren't hurt!
    Camping at a resort, remember that movie Troop Beverly Hills? That came to mind.

    I love listening to the birds in your mingle, ahhhh…relaxing!
    Have a great week, Jen!!

  10. LOL about camping at a resort. I agree with Tammy, that totally made me think of Troop Beverly Hills (didn't they sell girl scout cookies in that movie too?).

    Okay, the tornado story . . . wow!! Scary!

    Your post had Hubby and I cracking up. I always love your mingles . . . have an awesome week!!

  11. I would love to have one of my kiddos participate in the Mingle but the 14 y/o is camera shy and the 8 y/o is just a complete freak. We'll see!

    Ya know, Heather also went camping when a tornado touched down nearby. What is it with not checking out weather reports? 🙂

    Thank you for keeping the mingles going. I'm finding it hard to get the time to visit everyone but they're addicting so I have to do it in chunks. 🙂

    See you next week and I'm still looking to post my "catch up" mingle next week!

  12. Winter Witch on

    LOL @ Girl Scouts My dd is in 11th grade and they have the biggest scout group to graduate. There are like 40 girls in her class and 1/2 are a scout!

  13. ~*~ Melissa ~*~ on

    That camping story sounds not so fun! I guess you have to be a certain kind of person to enjoy camping. I love going, but we are the party type so it's a blast for us!

    Your poor mom and the Girl Scout thing. I could not imagine having a bunch of girls running around my house. Maybe that why I didn't have one??? LOL

  14. Beautiful teeth!
    Scary camping story. We prefer condos with jacuzzis over tents with air mattresses.
    Have a great week!

  15. Amy A.K.A. "The Mrs." on

    Happy birthday to your son! 🙂

    I just love when SG comes to join you. Her comments and stories always crack me up.

    A tornado while camping? Yikes! That would scare me out of camping for a very, very long time.

    Yay for Invisalign! SG looks gorgeous…of course. *It's in her genes*

  16. I love it when Speedy Girl joins you!

    My kids have chores too. Can't wait until they're old enough to tackle some real stuff though.

    Cookies!!!! Never tried the Tagalongs.

    Camping and tornadoes aren't a great mix. Don't blame you for not wanting to do that again. Phew!

  17. Love the Mingle, was very fun to take part. Tornados would definitely end my camping career, and Happy Birthday to your son!!

  18. You guys are TOO CUTE! Happy birthday to your son 🙂 My twin brothers turn 21 on Saturday this week, it's a crazy birthday month!

    I LOVED having 32 minglers I'm just sad that I can't get around to all of them lol I try to visit different ones each week though when I can so I get everyone in sometime!

    I think we should get paid for our chores too! I love that your daughter helps you with chores around the house!

    I was a brownie briefly and quit pretty soon after. I LOVE girl scout cookies especially Samoas. Boy scouts around here sell popcorn they definitely got shafted. I love Thin Mints too – did you know that Walmart has a generic brand of Thin Mints year round! I think they're $2.50.

    I no longer camp, there aren't enough horses that could drag me to a campsite these days LOL I would TOTALLY go RV'ing. We used to camp with group bathrooms but it was in France before they had real toilets and it was *barf*…there are no words to describe it!

  19. TheEclecticElement on

    YAY! Speedy and Lil' Speedy 😀
    Good to see you both!

    I love how your woot coupled simultaneously with her fist pump-A classic choreographed move 😉

    I can see your kids are older so they understand the value of a dollar.

    I agree with Lil' Speedy-It would have been so awesome to be a boy scout(screw all that etiquette crap LOL) 😀

    My family and I are weird-We would be out in that tornado like we were professional storm chasers!!

    Great video-Seriously love all the camping stories!!

    Hope your having a wonderful week ^.^

    I was never a girl scout either, but I adore girl scout cookies too! My faves are frozen Thin Mints.
    I grew up going camping and HATED it as an adult. As I mentioned on Erin's blog, my idea of roughing it is when you have to get OUT of bed to call room service!
    Thank you SO much Speedy Girl for showing me your gorgeous smile. The Invisalign seemed to work beautifully. You are adorable! It was nice to see you mingle with your mom!

  21. Lorie Shewbridge on

    Oh, forgot to wish your baby boy a happy birthday!!! (Sorry)
    He has the same b-day as my hubby.
    Gotta love those Pisces, they are great men.
    Hope he had a great day and all his wishes were filled!
