In the name of love March 2017 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to March's Secret Subject Swap. This month twelve brave bloggers submitted 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:
You win a cruise on "The Love Boat"...tell us about your experience

It was submitted by: (Thank you for the fabulous subject, Dawn!!)

So, about this awesome topic, it really made me have deep thoughts for days. Yes, days. I mean I really thought deeply about this. I tried to figure out how deep and personal I wanted to go with it, and I honestly almost decided to go very deep with it. I almost decided to reveal some deeply personal information. In the end, I decided to not go quite so deep, but I am going to give a very honest answer.

Now, as far as cruises and boats go, I am not the biggest fan in the world. I am kinda scared of them. Now, I did not watch the show about the Love Boat, but I am going to go with this being a boat about love/relationships.

That being said... I decided that what I would want, is to be put on a cruise ship, not just any cruise ship, but the most amazing cruise ship, with EVERYONE I love. Many of my loved ones, have gone many years without seeing me. So, I want to spend an entire month with them. 

As for the ship itself, I want it to be the largest, most amazing cruise ship ever. I want the entire top deck to be all about entertainment and relaxation. I want there to be a pool and a water slide, and game areas, and a spa, and some hot tubs. I want there to be plenty of rooms, with plush, comfortable beds. I want there to be large jacuzzi tubs and walk in showers, in every room. I want families to share rooms. There to be bunk beds for the kids. I want the accommodations to be perfect. I want the dining room to be designed so that people can enjoy their meals, and the company of others. 

Since this is a fantasy, I want there to be a stage, and I want there to be live entertainment nightly. I would love to choose the bands and performers that would serenade us (Think Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Adele, The xx, Radiohead, Aaron Lewis, George Strait, Disturbed, Tool, Garth Brooks, Celine Dion, Beyonce, Missy Elliot, Daft Punk, Cee-Lo Green, Kenny Chesney, Little Big Town, etc etc). I would want the ship to be just far enough offshore, that we are secluded, but close enough, that we can easily reach land. 

I would like us to be able to do activities off the boat, such as scuba diving and riding on jet skis and swimming. I want the entire experience to be FUN. I also just want to make rounds, spending time with all the people I love. It also makes me happy that the people I love would get to know Gigi, and Gigi would get to know them. Some of the most important people in my life, have never been able to meet Gigi. So, really this would be the perfect experience.

Yes, my mind immediately went to the romance option, and I did think of a fantastic option for that route, but in the end I think this would be the best way to go. I could literally have everyone I love in one place, for an entire month. It would be AMAZING. I would be beyond happy. I think this would make me so happy, that I would literally be high on happiness for months after wards. Actually, if anyone could make this actually happen... Let me know. I am all for this!! 

What about you?! How would winning a cruise on the Love Boat play out for you?! Do you like the way I spun it?! Would you prefer a romantic spin on it?! Let me know how you would have worked this subject!! 

I hope you all have a fabulous Friday and a lovely weekend!! Today is our last day on vacation. We have spent the last week in Arizona, with Chad's Dad and step mom. It has been a truly wonderful week. I wish we still had a few days left. At the same time, I am ready to be back to normal, and back home. I have fallen in love with Arizona. It is lovely here. I could happily live here. 

Here are links to all the sites featuring this month's Secret Subject Swap posts.  Sit back, grab a cup, and check them all out. See you there:


  1. I love what you came up with Jules!! That is a fantastic idea and so much fun! As much as I love my family, I think I would just want to go and enjoy my love of being single! Do what I want when I want, meet new people and just relax and have fun!

  2. I'm like you I'm not much on cruises either! I wouldn't want to be far from land for sure! Great job!

  3. I can't even imagine being able to spend a good amount of time with all of my favorite people all at once. Love this answer.

  4. I've never wanted wanted to do a cruise. The whole middle of the ocean and having no control over getting off, etc. BUT I'd go on this one with you in a heartbeat! It sounds perfect to me.

  5. Having those I love around me for a month -- I can't even begin to imagine how wonderful that would be. We all live so far apart and I miss them so much. Now, I have something to dream about!

Duke #FunnyFriday

Welcome to this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Minette of Southern Belle Charm.

1. Duke: Just five more minutes!
2. Duke: You want me to walk further?! That will cost you a Milk bone.
3. Duke: Mommmm, whyyyyyyy?! Can we just stop walking now?! Do we really need to walk more?! I mean, we have to be a solid ten feet from the porch. That is enough walking right?!
4. Duke: If you insist on bringing me to the vet, you will have to carry me. I will not aid in this. The last time you took me there, well, we just won't discuss that.
5. Duke: Must take a quick nap. That Thanksgiving feast wore me out. So. Much. Chewing.

New Year, Same Me. #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to January's Blog with Friends post! I once again decided to join in, and give it my best shot. How does it work? A group of bloggers select a topic, and create a blog post based on that topic, and then join their posts together in a round-up. This month, we are all creating posts based on the topic of resolutions. The posts can include any number of things, from crafts and recipes, to informative writing, to fictional writing, and anything in between.

How do you feel about resolutions? Do you make them? Do you keep them? Do you skip them? I tend to make some, and I tend to do a decent job at keeping some of them. I tend to take a more relaxed view on them, and shoot more for goals than resolutions. I also do not let myself stress over them. I feel if it becomes stressful, that defeats the purpose.

Well, for 2018, I have decided to take them a bit more seriously. I have put some thought into it, and come up with some things I really want to accomplish, improve, or change i…

Saved by Angel Payne #BookReview

I recently read Angel Payne's latest release, and let me tell you, it was not a disappointment. I will start by saying, if you are not into BDSM themed books, than you may just want to skip this one. BDSM is woven throughout the story, and it may be hard to ignore.

Now, if you don't mind BDSM, military hotties, romance, suspense, and action... This is definitely a book you want to read right away. The plot is entertaining and well thought out. The characters are interesting and well developed. The ending is steamy hot, and qualified for a HEA status.

This book offers plenty of steaminess, lots of action and suspense, and just enough intrigue to keep you guessing. We work through the characters struggles, both with major events that happen, with their relationship with their inner selves, and with their relationship with each other. This book has something for everyone.

Now, if you maybe don't love BDSM, but you can tolerate it, I would recommend you give this book a try. I…
