Well Kiersten White just happens to have this amazing series about Evie...now if you do not know Evie...boy you should! Pink Tazers, Supernatural Creatures, Adventures...
Anyway you have plenty of time to discover Evie's world (download it, read it, borrow it...don't steal it...I am a writer too and well it's frowned upon in all circles.... ;o) ) Right now you need to be counting down to the release of ENDLESSLY. Oh my goodness I cannot tell you how great Evie is..
Listen, go and wander over to Kiersten's blog enter her ARC contest - she has a challenge out for us all on this one (from her blog):I want you to tell me how a supernatural creature would disappoint you in reality. How much fun is that? Batman - hairy pits, Spider Man - VERY CLINGY as a boyfriend...you get the idea.
Without further ado, here is my contest entry:
Soooo today has been pretty interesting. I mean, it has been a really crappy day. First I forgot to shampoo my hair in the shower = greasy blonde mess; then I failed to shave my left leg = one legged pants are NEVER in fashion (no matter what your skeevy little brother tells you - the laughter will ring in my ears for decades!); last but not least I almost crashed my mom's car into the hardware store downtown because this HOT green eyed guy was standing on top of the Dairy Bar. Yeah ON TOP! Well he was up there until he slowed down the car before impact...yeah he flew or something - pretty cool, found out he's like uber strong, magical, save the world kind of guy. Of course I was psyched, thrilled and embarrassed...then he breathed on me. Really, really, REALLY bad halitosis...really bad. Hot eyes though.
Oh and the shiny glitter handprint left on the hood....yeah, my dad will never be seen in this car again.
So, I hope you like it, but more than that I hope you discover Kiersen and all her witty loveliness...she is a doll.
Well, it’s official. My 18 year old niece is now a High
School Graduate. She IS coming into her own and we could not be more proud. We
are preparing again to just be me & the Royal Hubs at home… She does not
leave for college until August, but the mindset of her being adult forces us to
consider how our lives will again change.
How can it simultaneously feel as though it was just the
other month that she came to live with us, yet the couple of years we have
shared make it also seem as though she has always been here?
Life is funny that way. Time does fly, we do seem to be
flitting along this wisp of a life at rapid speed but I also feel like time is
allowing me to cruise a little. I don’t feel my age. I have been told I don’t
look it. I don’t feel tired. I don’t feel rundown. For the first time in a very
long time I feel relaxed, ready, excited for another new chapter. My writing in
the last year has definitely been a backburner, I don’t regret it because the
effort I have been able to put towards The Duchess, my medical “detours”, and
also the Royal Hub is worth it. But I am thrilled beyond anything that I have
already been plotting in my head, that I have been reading more again, that I
have had dreams that make my typing fingers itch and that right now I am typing
a blog entry.
Please don’t think I have completely abandoned visiting the
blogs I love so much. Thank you Google reader, thank you NOOK, APPLE, all the
technology in my life has allowed me to at least see where everyone’s journey
has taken them and I am so excited for all the endeavors I am seeing out there.
God definitely has great timing, it does not always make sense but Faith
teaches me patience and in patience I find so many good things that I would
I want to wish every graduate out there a congrats…whether
it is High School, College, Masters, levels at work, levels in life…moving
forward is something we cannot stop. Change is evidently here to stay and with
it we discover so much and are allowed opportunities to create a positive
change on those around us & within ourselves. Life is an amazing
rollercoaster, we get to so many heights, dip our toes in the lows, feel the
wind whip around us, feelings of fear, excitement, pleasure…what a ride life
is. We are so blessed to get the chance to have our ticket to ride. Don’t waste
it by sitting on the bench and watching everyone else fly by you…
I look forward to summer days…hours by the pool…fingers
tapping on the keys…head bouncing to music…laughter, lots of laughter…warm
nights with mosquitoes…long sun filled afternoons where the sky is painted
orange, purple, blue and yellow…I invite you to not give up on me, to still
check the castle for updates, to laugh every chance you get, to embrace the
changes(whatever they may be) that surround you and to hold on tight – this
castle intends to have a phenomenal summer!
Adopting is awesome. It's a beautiful journey that is filled with every emotion possible. We are just beginning this trip, this adventure towards expanding our family. This journey is also VERY expensive. The cost of adopting is from $25,000 to $40,000.00 just to bring our sweet child home. For us, no monetary amount is unreachable with faith, work and the loving support of the 'village' around us. We will be fundraising like crazy over the next months. There will be fun giveaways, donuts, exciting events and the ongoing production of my Art for Adoption personal projects. The Etsy store I have created (a work in progress itself) is linked above. We also have added the Donation link above - there will be some pretty cool events linked to it coming up. We also will be adding links to some other sites that aid in fundraising for adopting families. As those appear so will more information. For now, we thank you for visiting our Kingdom and for supporting our journey. Your prayers & thoughts are blessings we never expected, are grateful for and excited to share with the child we will bring home to us all.
I am a writer looking to see my name in a bookstore one day! I am cheerful to a fault. People actually think that I am on some sort of medication that makes me perky most of the time, Building my bridges, not ripping them down.
I treasure my friends, they are my family. To me my closest friends are always referred to as Darl'n, Gorgeous, Cutie, or Beautiful. I love to read just about anything and pride myself on a well versed vocabulary. I love shopping & am an impulse shopper: purse,shoes & jewelry. I love my family and strive to forge close relationships with them as often as possible. I have a weakness for animals.
Alabama Football is a religion in my house, that on Saturdays, I faithfully attend every fall.
I love to cook, working during the week limits the experiments but on the weekends watch out!Southern heritage in all forms tends to make me very nostalgic. I have an emotional connection to my surroundings that is astounding to myself sometimes.
Im a Disney fanatic!!! Lived there, love it there, want a house there!! We got married there :) O
