Days 13, 14, & 15

I am in desperate need of catching up with nearly everything in my life -- this blog included.  So, lets try and get caught up....

Day 13:  A Fictional Book
Day 14:  A Non-Fictional Book
This is a book that I have that I would like to read...
And Because I am both lazy and tired, this story is *based* on a true story so I think that covers
fiction and non-fiction.  Yes?

Day 15:  A Fanfic
Really, the last time I heard of a fanfic was when I liked the
Backstreet Boys.
Which, was a while ago.
So.....I am going to pass on this one!!

Happy Hump Day!

Day Twelve: Run To Remember (aka whatever tickles your fancy)

Run to Remember

I know I mentioned this in the last posting, but I thought I would give a little bit more attention to this topic, the group Run to Remember was founded to remember the soldiers of fifth brigade that lost their lives during deployment.

To see a background of this story you can visit

These are the ladies of my husbands battalion representing.

Again, they are on Facebook as a group under
Run to Remember.

Never forget.

I've been avoiding this....But here it goes.  Like normal, I can't pick just one...

Animal cruelty.  HORRIBLE.

Day Seven: A Photo That Makes You Happy!

This photo has a funny story, and I will share it.
This is on my birthday back in January.
Notice how the photo is cropped pretty well.
Well, *someone,* not naming names
wore a bright blue bra underneath a black shirt.
Well, with a flash on a camera...
Let's just say the photo needed to be cropped!
My brother is the one pictured with me, he said that I cropped out my "bluebies."
Haha, Taylor.

So I guess it doesn't really make me "happy,"
it just makes me laugh.
But it makes for a story!!!

Day Five: Favorite Quote

Day Five:  Favorite Quote
....Or should I say, quotes?

"And ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation." 
-Kahlil Gibra

You never know how strong you really are until being strong is your only choice.

I thank God for my life. 

For the stars and stripes. 

May freedom forever fly, let it ring. 

Salute the ones who died, And the ones that give their lives, 
So we don’t have to sacrifice, 

All the things we love.

 “Look at an Infantryman's eyes and you can tell how much war he has seen”
--William Henry
