The Truth About Letting Go

Tying Up Random Odds and Ends


01, 2013 |

Filed in:


First thing to tie up: Around mid-week I realized that I FORGOT to choose the winner of Leigh Moore’s THE TRUTH ABOUT LETTING GO. So I am rectifying that right now. Random.org has spoken and the winner is:

Carolyn V!

Hurray! *throws confetti* Congratulations! I have e-mailed you, so check your inbox. 🙂

Second, a few of you had some questions about last week’s blog hop. Did I end up with S or X? (If any of you wondered about M . . . he’s my brother, so ewww! Did NOT end up with him).

Darling Husband

The answer to that burning question is neither. I met darling husband a couple of months later, and I’d like to say the drama ended there. Since I can’t, I will say that I am ever so grateful I ended up with who I did. He’s a keeper!

Finally, the last loose end to tie up is my annual April blog break. What with A to Z going on, and some serious revisions on my plate, I am going to disappear for the month (or so). I wish you all happy April, and hope you all the best. I look forward to lots of good news when I return in May.

Happy Blogging!

P.S. Happy April Fool’s Day! May you play some fun jokes on people who appreciate your humor. 😉

Interview with Leigh T. Moore and a Giveaway!


18, 2013 |

Filed in:


So Leigh T. Moore’s book, The Truth About Letting Go has been out
a couple of weeks and is doing awesome! Read all about it HERE.

So what else is there to do but have a
giveaway? Hurray! *throws confetti* One lucky commenter will win a copy of The Truth About Letting Go, just let me know in the comments you’re
interested, and leave me a way to contact you.

Last day to enter is March. 24, and
I’ll post the winner on Monday, March 25th. Best of luck!

In the mean time, since I already interviewed
Leigh HERE, I let my 3-year-old do the honors to give you a fresh perspective
on this amazing author. 🙂

Girlie, take it away!

What is your favorite color? Mine is pink.

Leigh: I’m
imagining us sitting at a little white tea table with a few stuffed animals
joining us. I’m very big, and I’ve got my pink boa and tiara on… 

(sips tea) I like pink, too. When I was
little, purple was my favorite color, though. You can be Pinkalicious and I can
be Purpleicious. Is that OK?

Girlie: Will you sing me a song?
OR Dance with me! I like being a ballerina. How do you like to dance?

Leigh: I don’t dance super well. My dancing
takes special medicine, otherwise I look like Kookoo the Bird Lady from Freaks.

Let’s play magic wands! Mine turns people into stones. What does yours do?

Leigh: Stones! Goodness.
Me: Yup, it’s true! I’ve totally been turned into a stone like 4 times just in the past week. Crazy.
Leigh: Did I mention I
really like this tea? And that’s a lovely dress you’re wearing. Umm… what if
my wand turns people into fairies? That’s fun, huh? 

Me: If I don’t hear from you in a while, I’ll confiscate Girlie’s wand. See if I can figure out the reverse spell! 😉

Girlie: If I’m the princess, what does that
make you?

Leigh: I guess I’d have to be either one of
those little birds that help you get dressed or a mouse… I’m glad I’m not the
step-mom or anything. They’re always bad. 

I like to cut things up and play with glue. What do you like to do?

Leigh: You know what’s fun to do with glue?
Put squiggly shapes on construction paper and then dump a bunch of glitter on
it and shake it around. It’s real, real messy. Ask your mom to show you how to
do this… LOL! 😀
Me: Um, thanks a LOT!

I can write the letter K. What can you write?

Leigh: Now that I’m big, I can write most of
my letters. But you know which one I still can’t write? Cursive Q. That’s hard
for me. Oh, and cursive Z. You’ll probably do those really well. I still have
to make those in print.

Me: Okay, I have to intervene, because
this is my blog after all. Last question:
What would Ashley’s personalized license plate be? Colt’s? Jordan’s? 8 letters
for each. Go!

Leigh: You know I HATE this!!!
Me: Bwah ha ha! I am evil incarnate. 🙂
Leigh: I’m not good
w/personalized plates. Urgh… umm… do they have to be 8 letters?
Me: Okay, okay, you have UP TO 8 letters.
Leigh: OK, here

Ashley would be  REBLREBL (I’m
thinking “Rebel Rebel”–like the David Bowie song… does this look
like Robble Robble?)

Jordan would be HAVEF8TH (That’s not
very good. I know.)

Colt would be L8TRDUDE (OK, his would
be cooler than that, but I actually knew a guy who’s plate was that… LOL!)

Me: Awesome plates! REBLREBL totally came across right. 🙂 Now
aren’t you all wishing you could sit down to a tea party with Leigh, wearing a
pink boa and a tiara? I know I am!!
Thanks for visiting with us, Leigh! And the rest of ya’ll, don’t forget to mention in the comments if you want a chance to win Leigh’s latest.
