Grey Days to Glimmering {Blog Party & Giveaway}

Because I'm definitely feeling uninspired post-wise these days...

1| What's your favorite thing to do when you've been feeling uninspired?  Take a walk and bring the camera along.  Or browse through my Pinterest boards.

2| Tell us about a really great movie/show that you've just discovered.  Ramona and Beezus {rated G} - super, super cute family film based on the books by Beverly Cleary.  I grew up reading those books and I love this film!  Also, for my adult readers, Just Like Heaven {rated PG-13} - laugh out loud hilarious, but also a real tear-jerker.  Totally loved this romantic comedy.  Be advised, some content is definitely inappropriate for my younger readers.

3| What do you like to do to change your mood?  Go for a walk, read my Bible, or talk to my bestie on the phone. :)
4| Your favorite drink is currently...  Chocolate Caramel Enchantment tea with honey in it. Yummy!

5| When you hear the word exuberant, what's the first word that comes to mind?  Fun.

6| What made you smile last?  A voicemail message on my cellphone. :)

7| What five songs would make a playlist to describe your week?  Oh, goodness...questions like this always throw me.  I guess pretty much anything from Point of Grace's early albums - Life, Love, & Other Mysteries, Free to Fly, Steady On, etc.  Just happy, uplifting, Christ honoring, contemporary music.

8| What's at the top of your creative 'To-Do' list?  Patch the sweater my dog chewed on so it is once more wearable.  That was about 5 years ago when she was still a puppy. :)

9| The last thing you crossed off the above list was... More laptop sleeves for my shop.

10| Quickly - the first movie quote from the top of your head, please!  "Badges? We don't got no badges. We don't need no stinkin' badges!" - Treasure of the Sierra Madre...and no, I have not watched that recently.  It just popped into my head.

11| The best thing about January is... Cross country skiing with friends!

12The worst thing about January is... Cabin Fever, also known as The Winter Blahs, at least in our house.

13| What's your #1 resolution for 2013?  I didn't really make any resolutions this year.  But I would very much like to finally finish reading through the Old Testament.  I keep getting stuck. *sheepish smile*

14| And lastly, share a quote or verse that you've found especially inspiring lately.   Because I'm the queen of always sharing more than is asked for, I have two inspiring quotes. ;)

Thanks for organizing a bit of fun during this drab month, Kellie!
Hop over to Kellie's blog to check out the giveaway!

Happy Trails, everyone!


  1. That was a nice read! And funnily enough, my quote is also from a film I have not seen in a long time...
    I guess Winter Blahs are equal to what a certain Czech writer of children's/young adult books called "Christmas mood". Which was an ironic expression, of course.
    Lewis is always inspiring.

  2. Mmmm...that tea sounds yummy! :-D

    Those two quotes are great--they really make you think. The "Happiness" one is a good reminder, whereas the C.S. Lewis one is really sobering. Wow. Thanks for sharing! This was fun!

    God bless,

  3. Perfect, dear;) Love the skiing pic - need to se the rest of those some time!
    And those two quotes? Amazing and timely.

  4. It's always nice to meet another Whovian fan :) Followed over from Kellie's blog party. :) "Just Like Heaven" is one of my fav's and Mark Ruffalo is quite lovely in that flick *sighh :) I love that pic of you and your friends skiing--it's LOVELY and you all look like you had so much fun :) The quote by Lewis--WOW, it is awe-inspiring how he conveyed truth in his writing. I'm saving that one.

    It was fun reading! Happy weekend!

  5. This tag was fun - I did it too because I have been feeling strange lately. Melancholy.

    Great answers - The world is wonderful really. Sometimes it is hard to remember this.

    God Bless!!!


Comments are my one weakness - thanks for taking the time to say hello!
