Blog Game!

Happy Hump Day everyone! I'd like to take a moment here and pat myself on the back. I finally got off my badonkadonk and took a long walk this morning. Exercise was my New Year's resolution and yes I'm a little embarrassed to say, it has taken me this long to get up and really do something about it. Hey, April 21 is not that far from the beginning of the New Year you know! I think I'm off to a good start and I feel great. Now I'll let you know in the morning how I really feel! Now on to my real post, the "Blog Game!"

I was tagged by Jamilyn from Living It At Home who asked me to be part of a game called "6th Photo published on your blog". Well I am lucky that I didn't have to search very far for my 6th pic, because I only started this blogging this past November! Jamilyn posted a picture of her dining room that was decorated for Halloween, which is funny because my 6th picture is of Halloween also!

I'm laughing as I read my first post, because all I did was post pictures. I didn't write a thing. I'm sure all of you who know me are shocked that one who normally rambles was speechless. Well, I had no idea what I was doing. I made the decision to start this blog but that was about it! I had been so good at stalking so many blogs that you would have thought I'd learned something. I was just thrilled I had figured out how to post pictures, writing something didn't even occur to me!

This is a picture of my living room all decorated for Halloween. I had taken this photo at the end of October and did my first post on November 9, 2009. I am know by everyone around here as "The Halloween Queen! It is my absolute favorite holiday and I go all out. I have every room decorated to the hilt. I like to start my decorating on August 20th, for two reasons. The first being it is my birthday and the second is that is usually the 1st day of school and the best birthday present a mother could get!

It seems to take a couple weeks to get it all out and decorated, so it usually stays up until November 1st. I was just a little late getting it packed away!

As I look at this picture I realize that I have rearranged the furniture 4 times since then and I can say I am quite happy with what it is today! Here are a few current pictures of my living room for your viewing pleasure!

Now comes the hard part. I need to tag 10 more bloggers to present their 6th photo. I feel that there are so many of you that deserve to be tagged, but since I can only pick 10, here they are .........

1. Tidbits from the Tremaynes

2. Fabulously French

3. From Here to There

4. Salvage Dior

5. Katrina Chambers

6. Dear Lilly

7. Sawdust and Paper Scraps

8. House of Smith's

9. Imperfectly Beautiful

10. Hope Studios

I can't wait to see some of your first pictures!

See girl? We are sooo meant to be BFF since you are the Halloween queen. I am the West's version of the Halloween queen. We have much in common. And by the way, my living room did not rock like yours did for Halloween. That is utterly awesome.

You only posted pictures? No way! So glad I discovered you after that little misguided phase was over...what would we do without your 'ramblings'?!? Love your living room, especially that sofa table. Great job on Halloween...we don't 'do it' here but it looks a lot of fun.
