Resisting Those Wedding Cupcakes OVER AND OVER....

Day 25 of 30-Day Blogging Challenge--If you could meet/have one fictional character fall in love wit
I have to say this is an absurd topic for today, one that I'm struggling with. Fictional characters? I suppose that could be on TV, in movies, or books huh?
Okay--here goes nothing. I have long been enamored with George Clooney, how gorgeo... Read more

Day 22 of 30-Day Blogging Challenge--What Is Your Style?
My Style? My style? Do I have a Style? This, I think is definitely a topic for the younger set.
