I love Monday Mingle, which was started by Jen at Eighty MPH Mom. In Monday Mingles, there are 3 questions and we answer them via a Vlog (video blogging). I am sad I haven’t had a chance to do it for about a month or so, but life has been very busy and before I know it, Monday has come and gone. I hope you enjoy my Monday Mingle and I wish everyone a wonderful coming week!

PS…I just realized these were last week’s questions, but since I haven’t done one since October, I figure I’m all good! Β LOL!

THIS WEEK’S QUESTIONS (submitted by Paula fromΒ Thrifty Mommas Tips):
1. What first name would you have chosen for yourself? Why?
2. What city or country have you visited that has the coolest name?
3. If you could wave a magic wand and change one thing about yourself what would it be?

    Great job, Shannon! I totally agree with you…Shannon is/was the perfect name for you! You kinda got your wish with Sam being that you ended up having a Sam!

    Hope you had a good New Year’s. You looked quite sassy in that pretty pink dress!

    A new year will do you good, my dear!

    Oh these are last week’s questions πŸ™‚ Esther isn’t a bad name LOL hmm I can’t picture you as anything other than Shannon though. It’s hard to do! I wouldn’t change my name either.

    Confidence can always use a boost. I hear ya.

    Have a good week! Happy New Year!

  3. you did great Shannon! love your mingles!
    i hope 2011 is super better for you…You deserve it.
    I like it that you mingled even though they were last week’s questions…lol. Of COURSE we forgive nyou.
    Anytime you mingle is a GOOD thing.

    I like your name too!

  4. Yay – I’m so happy Monday Mingle is one of your resolutions! How cool is that?

    It’s nice to see your face again, I have missed you πŸ™

    I think Shannon is a perfect name for you too πŸ™‚

    I hope things in your personal life will go the way you want them and that 2011 will be a FABULOUS year for you. You certainly deserve it. BIG HUGS!

    I haven’t been around in a few months nor have I been vlogging. Sorry to hear everything you are going through. I ended 2009 getting custody of my son and started 2010 dealing with his birth father getting charged with some pretty nasty charges. Here is to hoping 2011 is amazing for both of us.

  6. Shannon definitely fits you more than Esther would I think. I hope your 2011 is a little smoother and calmer for you and your family. One way I help myself and family is by going around the table at dinner and we all give 3 good things about our day – doesn’t matter how big or how small – it’s just a way, especially when it’s been a bad day, to help keep some positive in our days.

    Glad you are back mingling!

    You’re forgiven!! πŸ˜‰

    I hope to keep up with everyone and post a Monday Mingle every day too! Oh you know, you present yourself on your site and in your videos with a great confidence, but if I could wave a magic wand I would want the same thing! I really could use more too! I’m glad to see you participating in Monday Mingle!

    Hey, doll, I know this year will be better ~ sending you lots of love and prayers!
    Ummm, desert ecology? Now that sounds like fun.

    I think I’ve said this before, but you have the best hair!

  9. Stefany T says:

    Sorry to hear about your divorce/custody mess. πŸ™

    I think Shannon is the perfect name for you!

    I wish you much happiness in 2011!!

    Oh my gosh. I am so sorry to hear your year was so hard too. I hope the worst is over. Shannon is a pretty name. I missed my questions last week. So busy with Christmas. You always look nice in your vlog. Mine is terrible this week sadly too dark and I look wiped. Oh well, better year ahead I hope for all of us.


  11. I’m wishing all the best for you for 2011, you deserve it.
    I think your name fits you perfectly also; and I did get the “Esther” joke, I snorted!
    I loved your reference to the ABC car game… that city would be a great game ender… πŸ™‚
