30 Day Blog Challenge

Day 30 – Something that never fails to make me feel better

Elizabeth – A coke icee. If my world is falling apart, all I have to do is get an icee and it doesn’t seem so bad. Also, new perfume, Dairy Queen ice cream, or being able to scream or cry to a good song always helps too. πŸ™‚

Marie – A smile on either of my baby’s faces, Dairy Queen ice cream, a new pair of flip flops, and music.

Day 29 – Most Precious Possession

Elizabeth – I actually have several.

1. Terri’s grandmother’s wedding rings. I never take them off.
2. An antique white sapphire ring passed down to me from my grandmother’s side of the family.
3. A blue topaz ring of my grandmother’s.
4. A golden pendent with the letter ‘G’ on the front and ‘6’ on the back. Gilda was my grandmother’s name and she married my grandfather on February 6th.

Marie – A couple of my most precious material possessions are my dad’s dog tags from Vietnam and Desert Storm and my mom’s wedding set from when my parent’s first got married. They are both not worth a great deal of money, but are so precious to me.

Day 28 – Inspiration

Elizabeth – I don’t have one specific thing that inspires me. Sometimes it’s music or another work of art. Nature inspires me…most specifically rain. Now that I’m so into our story, the characters inspire me. Is that weird? To be inspired by people who are only real on paper?

Marie – My children are definitely my inspiration. They inspire me to be a better person, to make the best home for them, to be the best mother I can be, and to be the best example for them.

Day 25 – Favorite Seasons

Elizabeth – Fall and winter. Fall because summers in the south are usually hell, and the brisk winds are a very nice reprieve. Another reason I love fall is college football. We are die hard LSU Tiger fans in my family, and our Saturdays are filled with cheering the Bayou Bengals to victory. Lord help if they don’t win….then we mourn for the entire week. πŸ’œπŸ―πŸ’›
I love winter because I adore cold weather. I love dressing in sweaters and boots, and drinking hot chocolate all hours of the day.

Marie – My favorite season is fall. I absolutely love the changing colors of fall and the cool, crisp mornings and evenings.
I also love spring. It’s almost like a new beginning for everything and I love the beautiful colors of the flowers blooming. I love that it’s usually nice outside, not too hot or too cold.
