First day of snowed. Ah the county I live in! But yesterday was gorgeous and the daffodils are starting to peep their little heads above the soil.

Maybe? Hopefully? Spring will actually be on time this year... 

Fun blogging friend, Melissa Tagg (who had a much cuter post title for her tagged post) tagged me in a post earlier this week and thus provided a last minute blog post for me on a day I overslept and didn't schedule ahead. ;-o

1: Book of movie and why?

Book! Most definitely. We recently lost our antenna TV, so I've had more time to read a book at night and found I don't miss television as much as I thought!

2: Real book or e-book?

This is a harder one, because I love how at-the-tip-of-my-fingers an e-book is, but there are some authors, that I will always have a hard copy of their books. And my library shelves will always have company.

3: Funniest thing you've done in the past 5 years?

Do you know you can't plug your nose and hum at the same time? know you're trying it. ;-)

4: How would your best friend describe you?

I would hope that my BF would say I'm loving, kind and energetic. Eager to listen and fun to be around. Charity? Are you reading this? Do you agree? ;-)

5: How do you put yourself into the books you read/write or the movies you watch?

I look for some way to identify with the character in whatever situation. Not overtly most of the time, but on a minute level, I look for the little things that I could see myself doing, it's those books that seem to stick the longest with me.

6: Favorite car and why?

Volkswagon Bug! Because my nickname as a baby was "Bug". Thus the business, Bug's Beads.

7: Would your choice party be a catered meal or a BBQ out back?

I've always wanted to have at least one catered meal, just to see what it's like. But my down-home roots, say BBQ out back. With alllll my friends. 

8: What's your favorite season and why?

Summer. Because everything is green and growing. Like my allergies, but I'll ignore that. 

9: What specific lesson have you learned - Spiritual, educational, occupational?

Spiritual? That trusting God with my heart's desires is truly the best course of action.
Educational? Don't make things harder than they need to be. It's a lesson I have to apply to life too.
Occupational? Take a deep breath...and laugh. Because when you only have 3 exam rooms and one is full all afternoon and you have a waiting room stacked with people and those waiting outside to get can only shake your head and...laugh. Medicine for the soul! ;-)

10: Besides writing, what's your favorite thing to do when you have extra time?

Read! Oh, that wasn't one of my options? I love to get on the phone and talk with my writing friends. But above all, spend time with my family.

11: What's the one place you can be found at least one time every week?

The clinic? Oh? You were wanting something fun? What makes you think I actually know how to do fun?

You'll find me on Hulu watching Biggest Loser. But I don't eat ice cream while watching. That would be just wrong. Wrong.

Plus there isn't ice cream in the house.

Now I'm supposed to tag 11 other bloggers. I loved Melissa ideas and will tag those who stop by my blog. But no pressure, ladies! Use the post or lose it...hey, you might it some morning when you realize you had a blissful morning of sleep....and then didn't schedule a blog post.

Michelle Tuller...Kara...Susan Anne Mason...Anne Payne...Jessica R. Patch...Christy Janes...Amber Stokes...Keli Gwyn...Renee Chaw...Jodi Janz...Wall-to-Wall Books

Have fun ladies!! ;-)

Join the conversation! What are you doing this Friday?


  1. Cracking me up--eating ice cream while watching Biggest Loser...seems criminal to me. :D And I'm learning that same spiritual lesson...trusting God with the all I desire.
    ~ Wendy

    1. I know...but I hear ((shhh)) that people do it. Don't tell anyone that while I eat my gingersnap and watch snippets of the show. ;)

  2. I did try to hum while plugging my didn't work. Ha! I'd definitely pick a book over a movie any day...unless it was one of my favorite books turned into a movie-that would be fun!

    1. See?? You knew you were trying it! ;-) A good book turned movie is always fun. I recently watched The Shunning based on the book by Beverly Lewis and really liked it!

  3. Fun to get to know you better! And I'm seeing Hunger Games tonight with my hubby and friends. Of course, we're going out to dinner at one of my favorite pizza places first. And we just might have ice cream afterward. Yay!

    And I cannot even imagine having snow in March!!! But then again, I live in

    1. Oooh, fun evening ahead, Lindsay, hope you enjoy yourself!

      And wouldn't be able to imagine my snow, but I can't imagine your heat in the summer. ;)

  4. What a fun post, Casey! I enjoyed learning more about you. So, classic Bug or modern Bug? Convertible or hardtop? And what color?

    Thanks for tagging me.

    1. Oh that I don't know. Probably the modern, because that is what I see driving around town. I'm not a big car buff like my friend Renee. (Renee, don't shoot! ;-)

      You're welcome. :)

  5. That was every bit as adorable as I've come to expect from you, Casey. :D

    What am I doing this afternoon? I'm editing my WIP since I'm coming up fast on my deadline. :D

    1. LOL, thanks Erica. I giggled when I saw you won the Urban writing contest. :)

      Yay! From your fingertips to my eager reader's hands.

  6. So fun learning more about you, Casey! :) was easy for me to have a cute post title name considering my last name. hehehe...makes puns pretty darn easy.

    This Friday I've spent all day in meetings. Just about to hit the road and head out of town to my parents house. They're out of town for the weekend, so I'm dog-sitting and writing my heart out.

    1. Lucky. My last name only leads to people slaughtering it. Mostly sales people. ;)

      Ah! A writer's bliss! I hope you have a great weekend. :D

  7. You're adorable, Case! Thanks SOOOO MUCH for tagging me, very nice :) I'll answer the questions later, today has been a lazy day for me. I'm almost caught up on reviews, but having trouble finding 5 star books lately. Ever go through that? Have a great weekend and thanks again for picking me, you're such a blessing!!!!

    1. Of course!! I love lazy writing/reading days. So blissfully perfect! :) I do go through times where I can't find 5 star reads. I will say, my 2 five star reads this year have been from debut authors Courtney Walsh and Katie Ganshert. Am.Az.Ing books!

  8. Cute! It's always fun to see what you might have in common with other book junkies :) Ditto on the Volkswagen Bug but it needs to be vintage! And just so you know, we're having homemade bbq tomorrow :) Thanks for tagging me. I will save it for a later date. Enjoy your weekend!

    1. junkies. I love it. ;-) Ah, BBQ, can I come?? That sounds sooo good, standing outside with new green grass and the scent of the BBQ. :-))

  9. So, so fun ... My fam likes to watch The Biggest Loser on NetFlix -- but we're watching last season right now. (Don't say anything about this season, 'k?)
    And I did learn something new about you: You're involved in a medical clinic of some sort! I didn't know that!

    1. We just started with Netflix and are really enjoying it. I don't know about this season, Beth. The plays haven't had the greatest of attitudes. I guess I just watch it for the drama. ;-)

      I do! I work as an aid in training, meaning the clinic is training me as I go. Thankfully, I haven't maimed anyone my knowledge. ;)

  10. Here are my answers, Casey :) Thanks again for tagging me, it was fun.


Thank you so much for stopping by, I love to hear from those who traffic my blog! Have a wonderful day. :)
