_______________________________________
Lynnette is hosting this "Harvest of Friends Block Party" and has invited us to participate. So, please join us this week, share about you, and hop around through Mr. Linky to learn about others. Be sure to leave comments: it should encourage others to visit your site AND it you link up through Lynnette's site, you are eligible to win prizes! WOW! Thanks, Lynnette! So, here we go! Sssssssssssoooooooooo......in Lynnette's words:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Okay, so it's only been a few months since the last one, but I'm ready for another blog party! How about you?
The last "porch party" was a huge success! I had 119 people link up! I had so much fun visiting EACH and EVERY one of you!
Why another blog party already you might ask. Just because. Is that specific enough?
Well, actually... since we all hop around to visit each other on a regular basis, I personally think it's fun to get to know everyone better, and what better way to do that than at a PARTY! Plus, you never know, there may find a kindred spirit out there that you haven't met yet!
Besides... parties are just plain ole' FUN!
It's not a big formal event like the annual party through Five Minutes for Mom (Oh heavens no! I'm not nearly that organized and I hate formal events!) - it's just another fun - spur of the moment - Lynnette event.
So, here's how we'll do it this time...
1. JUST LINK UP! You don't HAVE to do anything special. (Now is that easy or what?)
2. If you want to (and I hope you will), create a blog post introducing yourself! I'm going to provide 20 questions. You may answer them all or just pick a few (or come up with your own) - it's up to you. They're just off the wall, fun questions that will reveal a little about your personality.
3. Please do your best to hop around and visit other party participants through the week.
4. So that we can get more participants (thus more visitors for you), make sure you let your readers know what you're doing by putting up the Harvest of Friends - Blog Party button on your blog post AND your side bar (just through the week) and tell them to join you in the blog party. *Blog buttons are in this post.
5. Link up to MckLinky (starting on Monday). If you do a blog post for the party, please link up that actual post for us.

SO ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY - LINK UP!!!
I plan (hope), once again, to come by and meet everybody (although if it's a big party, it might take me a little while - but I promise to try to come by!).

20 Weird Questions That Will Give a Little Insight Into Who You Are

2. What is one thing you wouldn't want to live without? My bioidentical hormone creme compounded just for my body!
3. Beach, Mountains or Farm? Where would you live if you had a choice? Love to visit the beach but wouldn't want to live there; love the mountains and changing of seasons and LOVE SNOW...so I would say "mountains"!

17. What's one thing you'd do more often if you had more time? Watercolor paint/scrapbook

19. Who is your favorite character of all time (from a movie or book)? (Can't be real) Eeyore
20. Would you want to be famous? No, don't want that pressure and everything that goes along with "status"; only would want to be famous in God's eyes by being obedient and by caring for the helpless/poor/orphans/widows

Well, I used to have your button up there! I don't know what happened to it. :P But I'll get it back up for you. Weird!

Hello from a fellow participant in the blog party!
I LOVE the sound of music, such a great movie. I pretty much know all the songs.
And you do look a lot like Lynda Carter! I don't look like anyone as far as I know... =)

Hey Lolli,

So nice to meet you. Oh my do you ever look like Wonder Woman!!!

Enjoyed getting to know you♥

Cecily Kate said...

Well hello Wonder Woman! Amazing resemblance! My dad used to say that Lynda Carter was one of the most beautiful woman alive (next to my momma of course!)
You are a very pretty lady - very classy.

I love the Sound of Music. Definitely one of my favorites.

I really think we'd have a blast hangin' out together. You could talk my ear off and I'd talk yours off right back. hee hee

Okay, I'm thinkin' I might actually go to bed early tonight. Kyle's taking me to breakfast tomorrow - Panera. Yum. He makes me go EARLY though - like 6:00! Ugh.

Love you. Have a beautiful Tuesday.
Lynnette
PS I hope your son is getting better.

Oh I definitely see Wonder Woman in you! Definitely!

I, too, am a picky editor and find typos everywhere! Sometimes I have to just stop reading.

Nice to meet you!
