Express Yourself - Battle of the Five Armies

Express Yourself  is a weekly meme hosted by myself and Jackie. It's goal is to help our fellow bloggers get to know one another better by being nosey of course.

Each week we will find something different to post about. It will correlate with writing, blogging, and life in general. Then, we hope, you’ll follow suit and post what it is that motivates you.


This weeks question:

Dec. 15-19: In celebration of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies - highlight ONE of your favorite characters from The Hobbit/LOTR film franchise.

Ok, lets be honest, can anyone REALLY pick out just ONE character? Ok, ok, so I know this was one of our questions so I should probably follow the rules... rules are meant to be broken...

Well not actually broken, more like tweaked!

My favorite character is... are... the dwarves. WHAT? I can't just pick one either. Each gruff man brings his own formula for a great character with passion and fight. Some are soulful, some are comedians, some are stubborn to a fault, and all are loyal.



But if we were to look back at LOTR, Legolas is definitely my favorite! And a close second, Aragorn. But by far the arrow wielding elf can cupid my ass any day!


Have a great day fellow bloggers! Who will be making it to the theater this week?

Cover Girls Top Ten... Honorable Mention

At the end of each year I love to look over some of my favorite book covers.
 
My choices are based strictly on the covers alone, since I have not read any of them. However, I plan to cause the covers look that good!
 
Each one has that IT FACTOR which draws me in and holds my attention.
 
This is my Honorable Mention...
I LOVE the way the wintery hawk looks and how it's shrouded in what seems to be frost. It really is appealing.
 
Winter Falls (Twin Willows Trilogy #1)  by
 
Blurb
 
Alessia Jacobs is a typical sixteen-year-old, dying to get out of her small town of Twin Willows, Maine. Things look up when a new family comes to town, but when she falls for the hot, mysterious son, Jonah, her life turns upside down.

Weird visions of transforming into an otherworldly falcon are just the beginning. Soon she learns she’s part of the Benandanti, an ancient cult of warriors with the unique power to separate their souls from their bodies and take on the forms of magnificent animals.

Alessia never would’ve suspected it, but her boring town is the site of an epic struggle between the Benandanti and the Malandanti to control powerful magic in the surrounding forest.

As Alessia is drawn into the Benandanti’s mission, her relationship with Jonah intensifies. When her two worlds collide, Alessia’s forced to weigh choices a sixteen-year-old should never have to make.

Express Yourself - Beverages

Express Yourself  is a weekly meme hosted by myself and Jackie. It's goal is to help our fellow bloggers get to know one another better by being nosey of course.

Each week we will find something different to post about. It will correlate with writing, blogging, and life in general. Then, we hope, you’ll follow suit and post what it is that motivates you.


This weeks question:

Dec. 8-12: Coffee, tea, soda... what's your favorite beverage?


My ultimate drink of choice is Mountain Dew but that starts to taste WAY sugary after a while or I'll switch back and forth from MD to Pepsi, depending on my mood.

But I also love lattes, though they don't usually like me. I frequent the bathroom a-many-a-times after drinking half of a latte.

Alcohol wise, Vodka, I heart me some Vodka and Malibu Rum. Yummy!!




What's your favorite drinks?!

Express Yourself - Favorite Family Recipe

Express Yourself  is a weekly meme hosted by myself and Jackie. It's goal is to help our fellow bloggers get to know one another better by being nosey of course.

Each week we will find something different to post about. It will correlate with writing, blogging, and life in general. Then, we hope, you’ll follow suit and post what it is that motivates you.


This weeks question:

Nov. 24-28: What's your favorite family recipe or meal?


My favorite thing to make for gatherings is Broccoli Casserole.





I use:
3-4 16oz. bags of broccoli florets
1 16oz. cottage cheese
1 block of velvetta cheese
2 tbs flour

Mix all of the ingredients either in a crockpot or mix in a bowl and pour into a crockpot (doesn't matter to me how you do it).

I usually let it cook for about 2+ hours, depending on how tender I want my broccoli. I usually like it a soupy consistency.

Then serve and enjoy. It's good during the cold winter months.
