Stable Layne Pt 8 #UseYourWords

Welcome to March's Use Your Words post. This is how it works: participating bloggers submit four to six words or short phrases for a fellow blogger to use to write a blog post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own unique set of words. All words are assigned randomly and nobody knows which blogger will receive the words they submitted.

My words are: stamp ~ legal ~ suave ~ mercy ~ lost ~ wild
They were submitted by: Jenniy of (Thank you for such awesome words, and I promise to do them justice in my actual Stable Layne installment! I am sorry for the delay!)

The title of this post is false advertising, and I apologize. I knew I was going to have a crazy few weeks, and I had asked Karen for my prompt early, so I could work ahead. I had done very well with working ahead on every post, except for this one. I have been working away on it, but it is not done. I still have three words l…

Mad Mad World #PoetryCollaboration

Welcome to March's Poetry Collaboration!! If you have been a follower of my blog, you know that each month, a group of us bloggers choose a theme, and then write poetry based on the theme. It can be any type of poem, and there are no rules. This month, our chosen theme of March Madness. Not necessarily the basketball March Madness, just madness in general.

After you check out my contribution, make sure you check out the poetry all my friends have created. I think it would be amazing, if you feel inspired, to read any poetry you could may write based on the March Madness theme.

Poem 1 (Mad Mad World):

All around me the world is mad.
People are dying.
People are going hungry.
Politicians are lying.
Schools are unsafe.
Drugs are taking lives daily.
It's a mad, mad world.
Hatred is more aparent daily.
Fear is filling hearts.
Danger lurks everywhere.
Criminals are seemingly fearless.
Some days it is hard to see the good.
Some days I forget that goodness is everywhere.
Some days, I have to remind m…

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

Nosy Flystander #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to March's Secret Subject Swap. This week, seven awesome bloggers and myself, 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:
You can be a fly on the wall in one person’s house while their family eats dinner. Who would you choose to peek in on and why?
It was submitted by: Karen of Baking in a Tornado (Thank you for this awesome subject! You really put my brain to work!)

This subject is not as easy, as one may think it is. Well, at least it was not easy for me. Not because I could not think of an answer, but because I could think of many answers. So, then the problem became to narrow it down to one answer. So, as I often like to do, I have decided to share my thoughts with y'all, as I work to pick a final answer.

My first thought was probably Matt Damon. So, one could say that I should pick him, simply because he…

Misadventures of a College Girl by Lauren Rowe #BookReview

I am back, with my latest book review, and it is the latest release in the Misadventures Series. So, listen, at this point, I have read nearly every book in this series, and I have plans of reading the ones that I have not read yet. I think it is safe to say, that you should just read this entire series. This latest release by Lauren Rowe, does not disappoint.
In Misadventures of a College Girl, we follow Zooey, as she tackles college. It is an entertaining read, and one that I think you will enjoy. It is one of those books, where it is realistic, and you can actually imagine this stuff happening to you, even though it has that fairy tale feeling to it. If you like happy endings, then you will love this book.
Our book boyfriend in this book, is Tyler, and he is such a worthy book boyfriend. He is also a huge reminder to never judge books, or people, by their cover. I think by the time this book ends, you will be adding Tyler to your list of favorite book boyfriends. He is so worthy of y…
