Friend Makin’ Mondays and Some Other Stuff

It’s Monday again, and you know what that means, right? =) It’s time for Friend Makin’ Mondays!  The last week has been filled with family and fun, and I’m sad to see it end so let’s talk about something fun today.But first, I want to post a quick vlog follow-up because I was in a pretty rough place when I posted the last one.

I don’t think I’ve ever done back to back vlogs, but I’m so thankful for the support that I received. And it’s much more fun to post vlogs when I have something positive to say. And now, back to FMM…

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!


FMM: Ten Random Questions

1) What do you like most about yourself? I don’t quit.

2) List three characteristics that you like to have in your friends. Loyalty, compassion, communication…

3) How often do you brush your teeth? I brush like a maniac..when I wake up, before I sleep and a few times throughout the day.

4) If you could travel anywhere today, where would you go? Cambodia.  My friend, Kent, is there doing amazing work, and I think it would be awesome to be a part of it.

5) Have you ever met anyone from the blog world in person? Yes! At this point, I’ve met loads of people – all of whom have been extraordinary.

6) What is the last show you watched on TV? I am currently listening to “Extreme Couponing” in the background…the last show I actively watched was Suits – my new favorite (with White Collar, of course) on USA.

7) What kind of perfume/cologne do you wear? I have two favorites – Burberry ‘The Beat’ and Marc Jacobs ‘Daisy.’ I typically wear Daisy when I’m feeling flirty and The Beat when I’m in professional mode…

8) How long ago did you complete your last workout? About an hour ago.

9) What will you eat for dinner tonight? I’ll probably eat the other half of what I didn’t eat last night.  I made chicken with onions, peppers and broccoli over rice.  (5p+ if you’re wondering.)

10) Share something fun that you did over the weekend. I spent the weekend with my sister, my niece and lots of other family.  We had a great time, but my favorite parts were at the end of the day when I cuddled up with my niece to watch Toy Story 2.  I’ve seen the first half twice this week, but I haven’t seen the second half yet.  The quiet moments with her are priceless, and I can’t get enough.


Now it’s your turn, and you know what to do…Don’t forget to come back and link up!  Happy Monday!

        I think you may need to have a Tumblr account before you reply, which I hadn’t taken into consideration before linking to it!

        I also have a blog at

        I’ll check the settings on my Tumblr as well, maybe there’s something I can click to welcome comments from new people 🙂

      I do it then need to do it again…sometimes feel strong and sometimes feel regret. It’s all just a big long process of emotions and choices…we just have to keep trying.

      Matt Bomer (Neal in White Collar) is the best reason I’ve ever seen to watch a tv show. I happen to think the show is amazing too. And I feel the same way about Harvey and Suits..

    I have been wanting to participate in FMM for months now but I kept missing it! So glad I finally got the chance. 🙂 🙂 And I am glad you are feeling better Kenlie. I don’t get many opportunities to write or comment on other blogs, but I read yours regularly and your vlog last night made me want to give you a hug! I know you can do this, and you will!!! You are an inspiration to us all!! <3

    Anyway here is my post:
