Writers Workshop

Woo hoo!!! I love me some writers workshop!
MamaKat @ gave us this assignment this week...
I choose number 1 and 2 and 3.
Yes, I'm an over achiever this week.
Lack of sleep has made me nuts.
The Prompts:
1.) Tag! Post and write about the 6th picture from (the 6th folder of?) your Flickr account and then do the same for the 6th picture of the 6th folder on your computer.
2.) Are you still friends with you high school friends? Describe them.
3.) If you had to star in a reality tv show, which one would it be and why?
4.) Describe a time when your pet caused chaos.
Reality Show
It would HAVE to be The Amazing Race. I would win the million, (hey, it's my dream).
The reason is my love of travel.
If my butt isn't on a plane at LEAST twice a year, going on vacation... I am not a happy girl.
On my show... I would be able to pick each destination (again, my show)
and the destinations I would pick are as follows...
Tierra Del Fuego,
and Japan.
I would be agile, 5 ' 10", long, lean and drop dead gorgeous.
I would know how to say key phrases in each language, (it makes me so mad how rude the contestants are to expect other cultures to speak English), and I would be running against
my favorite people...
My Mama
My Papa
My Father in Law
Maya Angelou
Barack Obama
Steve Martin
Julia Roberts
Sandra Bullock
among others I can't think of at this moment.
In between takes, we would all laugh, drink wine and banter with each other, showing such commaraderie it would be ridiculous!
Ahhh dreams...
I am still friends with people I knew in Kindergarten!
Mari is one of a kind. She is kind, generous, hardworking, sympathetic and emotional.
ALWAYS ready to lend a hand, she is the consummate confidant.
She is probably the most easy going person I know.
She puts up with my mood swings, and knows not to take them personally.
She adores my kids, and enjoys them like a cool Auntie.
She is my soul sister... and I love her dearly.
Now for the 6th picture... I don't have a Flickr account... so I can only the 6th from the 6th...
Here goes..
This picture is from our 2006 Pampered Chef Incentive Trip
A 5 day cruise to the Caribbean.
This is on Key West, and Jimmy Buffett bar
We werent' allowed to take pictures inside the bar,
so we took one from the golf cart we rented.


  1. I love your reality show!! You went and got all creative with the production! Can I be on it too??

  3. I want to be on your team for the Amazing Race.... I promise I won't slow you down or yell at you on camera...or cry when I can't finish the roadblock....

  4. Visiting from MamaKat's writing workshop links! Fun post. Love your Amazing Race concept...that is my fave too! Love that your friends with someone from Kindergarten! Want to be in that photo!

  5. Hello...

    we also have three younger children.
    I love your writing workshop idea..can i play?

  6. Too funny. Loved the list of your competitors on The Amazing Race. You should make up a post about being on the show... It's a great idea for a story... we want to hear more.

  7. That was her plate inprinted on my bumper...LOL.. No deneying she hit me!!! I am good. Still have a headache from head hitting window but Im good. Your posts are super cute. Love Margaritaville!!! Have a wonderful Thursday, How dis you make your post say Friday the 5th??

  8. You are a woman with a plan, I like it!

  9. Mommytoalot... Of course everyone can play! click on the Mama's Losin It button on my side bar.

    Carole...I have no idea why it says the 5th.

    Melissa, I don't mind being yelled at... I just yell back.

    Thanks to all!

  10. OH. MY. GOSH!!!! I have been to THAT Margaritaville in Key West!!! On my honeymoon! I just get so excited when I see that people have gone to the same places so far away from home as I have been. I know, Lame...but soooo COOL!!! LOL!

  11. Sounds like my kind of Amazing Race!
    That is so cool to be friends with someone that long! You should post a few pics!

  12. Don't they know you blog!?! You totally should have taken pictures inside...just to spite. But then...I'm spiteful like that.

    Amazing Race is a GOOOOD one!! You'd kill it.

  13. HI! This is my first week on the Writing Assignment, so this is my first time popping over here. I'm so glad I did! LOL! Your Amazing Race would be a top-rated program! And of course you would win? DUH! LOL!

    I hate to admit it, but I had no idea that there really was a bar called Margaritaville. I'm with Mama Kat; I would have had to try and sneak a picture with my phone... giggle! giggle!

    Hope to see you again next week! Better yet, we should get together and compare notes on raising boys. I have 2 grown sons. Aren't they a blast!


  14. I thought I got rid of the sign in thing to comment. What am I doing wrong? How do I make it stop?

  15. Great job with the prompts this week. I didn't have time to play. Boo hoo!

    I can't believe you are still friends with kids from so far back. That is really neat.

  16. Oh! I love your Amazing Race idea. I almost wrote about that prompt. I don't know the first three people on your list since obviously I don't know them, but the last three would bring the lulz and the middle two would bring the cultury stuff. I'd just add some great looking guys for the pretty, and I think you'd be all set! at least for my viewing pleasure. ;)


Comment! Comments! I just loooooove comments!
