Scavenger Hunt

I'm participating in the Scavenger Hunt hosted by Mrs. White at Little Homemade Housewife, so keep reading to find out what I've been reading lately!

 Wild: I'd have to choose Morgan at Quite the Blog. She's a little new to the blogging scene, but just like I was, she was homeschooled till college and she married her favorite guy pretty young, too.

A Post that I Could Empathize with: Definitely Life of Bon's How to Trick your Husband because it sounds precisely like the type of brilliant plan I would come with if I had any desire to change my hair color. Instead, I usually apply this type of planning to schemes involving dresses, shoes, and jewelry, but it's really the same thing.

My 'Go To' Blogger: Julie at The Funny Thing of It Is mostly because she's hilarious and I'm prejudiced towards hilarious people.

Funniest Blog Post: Recently, that would have to be Veronica's Wedding Bloopers post--I already think bloopers in general are pretty funny, and her captions to go along with the not-quite-picture perfect shots from the wedding definitely made me giggle!

Blogger that could be my BFF if we ever met: I've mentioned her before, Rachael from Held by His Hand. She's the oldest kid in a big family, just like I am, and she has a heart for God and a sense of humor too!

Recipe: Although I cook, I'm not big on recipes in particular. I like the ideas recipes generate, though. And I thought the Mini Candy Apples at My Biscuits are Burning were a perfect fall treat!

Goofy Picture: I knew I could count on Erin.

Fashion Post: Lindsey's outfit really caught my eye! Probably because of my already well-known love for bright colors...but hey, you have to admit, she looks gorgeous!

Picture of a great blogger smile: Well, Aunie has a pretty good reason to smile, after all, she just got engaged and is planning a wedding!

Post I've read more than once: You see, the thing is...I don't tend to read most things more than once. However, I can watch things more than once, all the time. Especially if they are spoofs of music videos and I get obsessed with them. "Like a Good Boy" by Nigahiga is one of those things I've become strangely obsessed with.
