Pants on Fire #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to August's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven 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:
Write four things that are true about you and one lie and see if your readers can guess the lie.

It was submitted by: (Thank you for the fabulous prompt, Shannon!)

You guyssssss!!! When I read this prompt, I basically did a happy dance. I was so excited. It is FUN and I was like yayyyyy easy!!!! Then I sat down to write. Ummm... Say what?! Okay.... So four truths about myself. One lie about myself. Plus, I need it to be a bit difficult to pick which is the lie. Okay, maybe not so easy! LOL. I still love it. I had a lot of fun deciding which five things to say!!! 

Good luck!!

1. I am genuinely scared of chickens, especially roosters, and will RUN from them. I try to avoid them at all costs, and when faced with them, I tend to have anxiety attacks.

2. I am obsessed with Matt Damon. I adore him. Truly. He is one of my absolute favorite human beings. I have watched every one of his movies, most of them multiple times. The only one I didn't love, was The Talented Mr. Ripley. In truth, I do really like it. He was just so great at playing a psychotic sociopath, that it irks me. He is just that darn great of an actor. 

3. One of my goals is to become a vegetarian. Well, more like become one again. I have been one a few times, the longest time being almost four years straight.

4. My absolute favorite candy is Jujubes.

5. I was given an IQ test, and scored at genius level. 

So, tell me... Which is the lie? Can you figure it out?! I hope you all have an amazing weekend!! 

Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts.  Sit back, grab a drink, and check them all out. See you there:


  1. the lie has to be either 1 or 4......not sure which! What a great prompt!

  2. #1 is true, but for SPIDERS, so I say this is the lie. No doubt, #2 is true :-)

  3. I bet you don't really like Matt Damon Bwahahahaha! No, honestly I bet you don't like Jujubes! Can't wait to find out the truth! This was a fun prompt!

  4. Ooh, I love this prompt. I don't know what to guess, I believe all of them. Does that make you a good liar? Hmmm.

  5. I'm so happy you loved my prompt! I thought it sounded fun and kinda different from what I usually think of and it's a fun game I've watched my kids play with their friends. I'm pretty sure I've seen you talk about Matt Damon. I would say #3? I tried being a vegetarian/vegan for a whole year, it was torture lol

  6. I'm guessing it's the jujubees. What a fun prompt!

Weather Outside is Frightful #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to February's Blog With Friends round-up!! I have had so much fun joining in, that I decided to tag along for February as well. In case you do not know how it works... A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!

Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

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…
