I must be in a baby mood. Okay, now that we've all had some cheese...

Last week, Elizabeth Seckman shared with us her amazing romances Past Due, Healing Summer and Fate Intended, along with two truths and one lie about herself. Those who guessed the lie correctly were entered into a random drawing to win THREE of her amazing eBooks!

Elizabeth's game:

1. Elizabeth failed kindergarten and didn't know how to read until second grade.
2. She was named the Tyler County Fair Cow Queen.
3. She asked, or rather told her husband he was going to marry her. 

And the lie is: 

#2. Elizabeth did actually fail kindergarten *gasp* and she's apparently a bossy woman, but her husband loves that about her because he obeyed.   

Way to guess those of you who got it right! You are officially human lie detectors. And the winner is:

...DRUM ROLL...

Pk Hrezo!!!


Congrats Pk.

  10. I love the pics! I've been in a baby mood too, but just to look at!

    I admire Elizabeth's boldness. If I tried to do that it would come out as "Um, hey, yeah, so, uh...we should get married, probably, maybe, I think." :D

    1. LOL! You know what I did? I totally knew on the second date and tested him and MADE him want me while never giving any signs that he had me. Poor guy. But hey, he survived--and passed. Obviously. =)

  13. The funniest thing I saw today was at work. To explain the class I was subbing would take too long, so suffice it to say they all had work on the computers, and they were allowed to listen to music.

    This one boy was really into his music. He was dancing around in his seat, with his hands in the air, waving them around. Grooving. So, I went over to investigate (enjoying his music is fine, but he had an assignment to complete), but he didn't notice me. The rest of the class, however...

    So, I'm standing there, waiting for him to notice me. The rest of the class was scandalized. Then the boy finally noticed that I was right there.

    1. Because who doesn't want to be kidnapped by deer?

  22. LOL I so wish Elizabeth really had been the Fair Cow Queen. :D

  23. I hate to admit it, but I'm like that kid when it comes to my dessert. But I always steal from my partner--I just can't help myself

  24. Love the memes! I am a meme junkie.

    I have to check out the review thing and that hop.

  31. Pictures of babies with "expressive" expressions can always give me the giggles or the "ooooh, what a cute baby!" thing.

    1. Me too. What are babies so stinkin' cute?

      Delete
  32. Thought nothing was better than Gandalf with a gun until I saw that baby ready to beat it's own reflection. Hilarious Crystal! Plus reindeer kidnappers are the scariest. Especially when they can drive and talk. No need to explain to my disappearing profile. Run!

    1. LOL. I think if that ever happened to me, I'd stand there, staring, trying to comprehend what I was seeing. =0
