Today's post can be found on my personal blog. I tackled the three wishes head on! Click here to read! ~*~*~ Lindsay's ramblings can be found at and on Twitter or Facebook....more

Complete Frippery

I simply do not know how to answer the prompt for #NaBloPoMo today, so I won't. I'll just come off sounding like a complete twit anyway. How about I just cross-post my Wordless Wednesday photo from Lindsay Blogs?...more

Day 8: I Grew Up Too Soon #NaBloPoMo

The prompt today is a bit more serious than I usually like to write because I tend to not want to remember the bad things in my past much. But, I took the challenge, right? The Prompt: Has anything traumatic ever happened to you? Describe the scenes surrounding a particular event. There have been a few defining moments in my life that I can honestly say have had a huge impact on me. Unfortunately, many of those moments are not good memories that I can look back on in reverie....more
I can relate. Why would a young woman who sees her mother as helpless have any idea that she, ...more

Day 7: Balance? What's that? #NaBloPoMo

I didn't actually skip Day 6, I just happened to do it on my personal blog and wrote about my new sponsor child through Compassion International. I meant to come and post it here, too, but then I didn't because I'm a bum. And now, back to your regularly scheduled programming... The Prompt: Making family time is important to me. How do you balance your children, relationship, and work life? So, I'm not actually that great at this....more

Day 5: No Prompt In Sight #NaBloPoMo

Since we were given no "official" writing prompt for today, you will get complete an total randomness from me....more
@victorias_view Those are good! Thanks!more

Day 4: Paper or Pen? #NaBloPoMo

 So far, I have managed to keep up with NaBloPoMo, but it's only day 4 so I won't get myself too excited. The prompts are pretty fun to answer, so I'm having a good time with it. The Prompt: When you are writing, do you prefer to use a pen or a computer? When I was a kid, I loved sitting down with a pen and paper and just writing my little fool heart out. I can't say why, exactly, just that I loved writing out every thought I had....more
@isthisthemiddle Yep. It's not only the cramping, but I must hold my pen wrong or something ...more

Day 3: Music in Motion #NaBloPoMo

I've decided to use this area of BlogHer for the daily writing prompts, but I will also be posting on my personal blog ( each day during #NaBloPoMo. I just don't always feel like the daily prompt belongs in that space, but it's still fun to write about them! The Prompt: Can you listen to music and write? What song did you hear today? No matter what I'm doing - work, cleaning, walking, driving - I always love having music in the background....more

Day 2: My Last Meal #NaBloPoMo

Since I joined in the #NaBloPoMo a little late, I thought I would take this opportunity to use the BlogHer blogging feature to catch up on the past writing prompts and feel more official about it all. The Prompt: If you knew that whatever you ate next would be your last meal, what would you want it to be? Putting aside the sentimentalities of it all and going strictly on the quality of the food, I would want my last meal to be one of the best things I have ever had the pleasure of eating....more
@isthisthemiddle I actually prefer crab to lobster on most occasions. It seems most people don't ...more

Day 1: Writing Love #NaBloPoMo

Since I joined in the #NaBloPoMo a little late, I thought I would take this opportunity to use the BlogHer blogging feature to catch up on the past writing prompts and feel more official about it all. The Prompt: What is your favourite part about writing? I'll be honest on this one. I don't consider myself a "writer." I have no dreams of landing a book deal or becoming famous for my writing skills....more
@victorias_view I couldn't agree more!more

American Idol Recap

I’ll be honest, past years I have not watched American Idol until they get to the exciting stuff. We’re talking Top 10 and beyond. I find auditions and “Hollywood Week” really boring and pointless since we don’t get to see most of the people actually make a splash on the show. This year was the exception. I have watched every episode of AI (except maybe one or two where I had stuff going on outside the home) and have been paying close attention so that I could have meaningful water cooler conversations with those around me....more
