Just For Fun–An Open Letter to My Denver Broncos

  Congratulations! I knew you could do it! Hey guys.  We’re down to the nitty gritty now aren’t we?  Excitement coursing through our veins and nervousness ebbing and flowing–it’s enough to drive us crazy, am I right?  Thinking of loved ones and wanting to do them proud, knowing that we’re on the cusp of something so fulfilling and rewarding has made it hard to sleep, yes?  It’s rare, this incredible moment and I can’t help wanting (no, yearning) for us to come back Champions. You’re probably thinking, “What is this WE stuff, girlfriend?” I mean, I’m certainly not the one…

Just For Fun- The 7-7-7 Challenge

Hello my friends!  I am finally getting to this challenge that was presented to me by the Mom Who Runs! Please check out her blog. I am usually writing and posting things as soon as they are finished, but in an attempt to have fresh material for my book I have withheld longer stories that will only be available there.  I have one that I am particularly happy with and so I will share it with you today.  I do not have 7 pages of writing to use for this challenge so I changed it to the 7th paragraph, 7th…

Just For Fun–Versatile Blogging Award!I

Thank you to Lacie @ See You Starside for nominating me for the Versatile Blogging award.  I have been so busy lately that it has taken me quite a while to sit and write these things down–which is a shame, because I usually LOVE talking about myself!  I am always excited to get nominated for various awards and I hope that you find a little interest in what I shall now reveal about the person that is me… First, the rules (which I have no problem with you altering in whatever way makes you comfortable): First things first, here are the Rules: If…

Just For Fun–Help Me Plan My Totally Awesome Vegas Vacation!

Vegas, baby!  That is where I am heading early Sunday morning with my mom and a very good friend.  We are jumping into my version of the family truckster (my twelve year old Prius) and zooming (okay, fighting for each mile) through the Rocky Mountains on a twelve hour journey to “The City of Lights”, or “The City that Never Sleeps”, or “The City that Makes You Really, Really Fat”–whatever most people call it these days.  I honestly don’t even care what nickname it has–I’m just going to call it “The City that Isn’t Here” and be happy with that!…

Just For Fun–I Made a Blogging Award

Greetings and Salutations to you all! I have been having too much fun with this blogging business with all the different ways my brain is functioning trying to figure out how to be “successful” and getting to know some of my fellow bloggers. Every once in a while I see someone write about being nominated for this award or that award and I find those posts to be very fun and informative.  I find myself hoping to get nominated because I love talking about myself so much.  It feels strange to say that, but would I even be blogging if…

Just For Fun- How Can I Get Any Writing Done When Mindy Kaling is Back On the Air?

Hello my lovely friends! I think I deserve a medal today.  I got up, took a shower, got the dog out for his walk, took the boy to school and then sat down to actually write something for the first time since I got back from my mini-vacation to southern Colorado.  It has been a super struggle to jump back in and join the world with all of my writing friends.  I can’t wait to finish up a couple of new pieces I’m working on and get them out into the world.  But as one problem is solved, another is…

Just For Fun- Tell Me Your Favorite Place to Drive for a Long Weekend

Hello my friends! I am currently on a lovely four day road trip with my family to Mesa Verde National Park and having an absolutely amazing time!  As I am sitting here for a few minutes I thought it would be fun to get some feedback on some of your favorite road trips.  Since I am only away from home for four days, I am going to limit the question to road trips that take four or less days from where you live.  I will fritter this information away and keep all of the suggestions in the back of my mind…

Just For Fun- Sunshine Blogger Award

Thanks to Catherine from Atypical 60 for nominating me for The Sunshine Blogger Award!  I really appreciate being nominated. When I am done asking these questions that were posed to me, I will ask some questions of other bloggers! Then they can decide whether or not to keep the love moving forward. Have fun! What’s your Favorite movie? Why? Well, I actually rotate my top 3 movies many times during the year.  Depends on what kind of mood I’m in when someone asks me!  I would love to say that I go for the artsy-fartsy movies that make me look…

Just For Fun–I Can’t Resist the Temptation

Hello my friends, I am having a lot of fun sharing my latest post with you (read it here) and it got my brain churning.  After a week or so of somber writing and questioning serious things I decided I just wanted to have a little fun today.  I wanted to pose a question to everyone out there: What food or drink item can you not resist, even if you’re extremely full or on a diet? I could probably list 15 different foods, from all food genres, but I have to say that I will always eat a piece of…
