My Gigi, My Love #UseYourWords

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.


My words are: lamp ~ black ~ design ~ toothbrush ~ shag They were submitted by:http://www.southernbellecharm.com
Poem: My Gigi, My Love.
I love spending lazy days with you. I love spending busy days with you. I love watching you turn our lampinto a stage spotlight, while you dance. I love watching you dance circles around your stuffed animal audience, in your black tutu. I love seeing your excitement when I hand you your toothbrush, knowing you're a big girl now. I love watching you draw pictures, showing me yourdesign for your future house. I love that you…

Greatest Love #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to May's Secret Subject Swap. This week twelve awesome bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today, we are all simultaneously divulging our topics, and submitting our posts.



My “Secret Subject” is: Tell us about a song that, every time you hear it, takes you back in time.
It was submitted by: http://Bakinginatornado.com

Well, this subject was not as easy as it may seem. I have a hard time with music questions. Music is such a massive part of my life, and so important to me, that it is hard for me to narrow things down. With this subject, I did have one song pop into my head, but I did not want to go there. Mostly because the back story is not something I really want to discuss at this moment. It really is not bad, but it is personal.
So, I was seeking input from Chad and Andrea from AndieRunsOffCrazy, and they were no help at all. None whatsoever. So, I was about to search songs of the 90's, and…

Sumo Suma #FunnyFriday

Today’s post is April’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project.

Off My Chest #UseYourWords

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are: gravely ~ gratify ~ legit ~ misjudge ~ realign They were submitted by: The Angrivated Mom(Thank you for these awesome words!!)
Helllllloooooo!!! How are you guys doing?! I hope none of you are gravely ill. I am sorry if you opened this today, expecting to see an installment of the Stable Layne story. This read will not gratify your curiosity for more Stable Layne. I do hope you get some enjoyment from it, even if it is just that we connected. 
I had a legit plan on how to use my words, that involved Stable Layne, but once again, the stars did not ali…

April Showers, May Flowers #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to April's Secret Subject Swap. This week fourteen brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.





My “Secret Subject” is:
Are you showering for May?

It was submitted by:http://notthatsarahmichelle.blogspot.com
Confession.... I almost just typed out "Yes." and called it done. That would fulfill the subject. Yes? No? Well, in my head it worked. I would have felt like I took the super easy way out though. Part of me is just so bogged down these days, that the easy way was tempting. I did not join onto the Secret Subject Swap group to go the easy way. I joined to challenge myself, by allowing my fellow bloggers to challenge me, with the subjects they concoct. If you have followed my blog, you know they have certainly challenged me over the years. I like to think I have risen to the challenge, at least most of the time…

Abandoned by Lyz Kelley #BookReview

Okay, I am coming to you today, to tell you my opinion about two books. Yes, two. Not just one amazing book, but two AMAZING books. Do you remember when I told y'all about Blinded by that awesome author named Lyz Kelley? If you missed it, or simply do not remember, then you can read it here. Well, now I am here to tell you about the next two books in that Elkridge Series.
The short of it, is that you need to go get these books and read them. Since Blinded, there have been two more books added to the series... Spurned and Abandoned. After reading Blinded, I was pretty darn sure that Lyz Kelley was an awesome writer, and now two books later, I am completely positive she is. I absolutely cannot wait to read the entire rest of her Elkridge Series. Lucky for all of you, there are three AMAZING books for you to read, and then we will have three more. 
In Blinded, we fell in love with Mara and Joey and the town of Elkridge. We also started on the journey of trying to solve Sam's murder…
