Friday Man Candy!


It's Man Candy Friday! Brought to you on America's Birthday minus banana hammocks, sweaty chests, or anything embarrassing that you can't enjoy with the kids in the room. You're welcome.

So today, I decided to do something unorthodox. Since we're celebrating all things American today (Independence Day) and ultimately the birth of our nation, and it's independence from the British....

I've decided to throw the Brits a bone today.

Today's man candy is British. And a bobble headed, messy hair, clumsy, arty-fartsy kind of way. Yup. Welcome to the blog, Robert Pattinson. Sorry we beat you in the war.

And to my readers: you aaaaaaaaarrrrrre welcome.

Blog challenge day 25!

Here I am on day 25.....can you believe it?

Today's topic is super special. Here it is: what made my day special?

Well, that's easy....It's THE FOURTH OF JULY! In other words, America celebrates Independence Day today!

Now, some people may celebrate all sorts of things today, but I celebrate all things American today. Freedom, justice, community, family, and peace. These are the things I treasure the most about my country. I hope you do, too.

What made your day special?

Know who else celebrates the 4th of July with her family? Lexie, from Baby & Bump. Have you read her story yet? Grab it here.

Blog challenge day 24!

And we've made it through another (almost) week...

Go, me!!!

Today's topic is: my goals for next month.

And well, since it's only three days into the month of July, I'll share my goals for July.

1.) I intend to take my cheerleading team to UCA camp and unify my squad.

2.) I intend to enjoy a lovely family reunion with relatives I haven't seen in years.

3.) I intend to enjoy a high school 20 year reunion and wear a lovely green dress while doing so.

4.) I intend to hit my 140's and start the LOOOOONG process of toning my perpetually squishy tummy, arms, & butt.

What do you intend to do this month?

You know who else has some important goals? Posey, from The Art of Being Indifferent. She wants to get away from Twisted Tree, Washington, and head back to Seattle after graduation. Check out her story by clicking here.

Blog challenge day 23!

Wheeeee! It's day 23!

Today's topic is super easy. It is: my most memorable vacation.

Oh, how I loved this trip. My husband and I took our kids to Disneyland a few years ago, and it was...well, at the risk of sounding totally cliche, it was...magical.

I literally cannot wait to take my kids back again.

Can. Not. Wait.

You know whose kids got to go to Disneyland with their grandma in Then & Now? Candace's kids. Check out her story here!

Blog challenge day 22!

Woo hooooo! It's day 22!

Today's topic is: one thing that most people have done, that I never have.

This is an easy one....I've never learned a foreign language. I wish I had. But attention span in high school was less than desirable, and to this day, I still don't know how to speak Spanish. Despite two years of classes.

I know. I suck.

You know who CAN speak Spanish? Marisol Vargas. Check out her story in APPLES & ORANGES here!

Blog challenge day 21!

I'm still in shock that I've made it to day 21.

Usually I give up on this kind of stuff. But not this time! I'm always looking for good blog topics. I'm not sure what I'll do once I run out of them. I guess I'll go back to blogging about handsome actors and books I like. :)

Today's topic is....someone who inspires me. 

I wasn't really sure how to answer this one. You see, I tend to draw inspiration from new people every day. Some days it's my husband, who is infinitely more intelligent than I am. Other days, it's my mother, who tends to find humor in every situation. Then occasionally I find humor in my fellow authors who write beautiful stories, despite their busy lives. I also like to soak up inspiration from my friends, who always love me and accept me, even when they might feel like being b*tchy or cranky, or when I am b*tchy or cranky towards them.

Those are the people I draw the most inspiration from.

Occasionally, I also draw inspiration from this person's life & ministry, too:

Yeah. I'm kind of a big fan.

Man Candy Friday!

Yayyyyy!!! Man Candy Friday is here once more.

I love man candy Friday. Especially since Brooke Moss man candy comes minus banana hammocks, sweaty chest, or anything gratuitous. It's man candy you can enjoy with the kids in the room. You're welcome.

Today's man candy is.....oh, how I loves me some of this tasty treat. I even based a character (Landon Harlow, in Keeping Secrets in Seattle) on him. It's none other than Mr. David Beckham.
