Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Scavenger Hunt Day 3 questions.

before we begin, please say a prayer for Heather, her family and doctors as she has brain surgery today.

Yesterday, you guys posted a lot of bloggers who need encouragement. I challenge you to look at the posts and choose one and go and encourage. Thanks for all the input. I think that some people are struggling with the 3 questions. we will make this easier today.

1) Look at the list of participants in the hunt. Choose one that you do not read. Find something interesting about them and leave a comment. Let us know who you chose and what you found interesting. You don't need to leave the blog address, just the name listed and the number they are on the list

2)Find another participant that you have not read that participates in a daily meme. This is something like Monday Memories, Ten on Tuesday, Wordless Wednesday, Thursday Thirteen, Fridays Feast or Saturdays Scavenger Hunt. Find one that you find the most creative and tell us why.

3)There are a lot of contests out there in blogger world. Please list one that sounds interesting to you.

Here's a hard one that you don't need to do, as its not for points. Michael went to college. Where did he go to college and find a picture of the mascot. Dont forget to check out
Valtools Box for pictures from last night!!!

Great Idea. I will check these bloggers out throughout the day.

Mercy's Maid said...

1. Interesting Participant-#49 JennClair. I LOVE books and I love reading posts from other people who love books. I'm off to subscribe to this blog.

2. Participant's Meme-#92 (shoshana) http://unsealmylips.blogspot.com/ She participates in lots of the memes that you mentioned. And she incorporates lots of pictures of her family. I love the idea she has about the sand "box". Very cool.

3. Interesting contest. Bloggers Without Makeup!

· I chose number 14 “Goofy Girl Design” Hers is not a huge blog. She is a medical student that during her “free” time (if medical students have any) she spends her time designing blog templates, which she’ll give out for free. Although she also has designs that she sells. It’s interesting to me that we still find people out there that is willing to share a portion of their talents.

2)Find another participant that you have not read that participates in a daily meme. This is something like Monday Memories, Ten on Tuesday, Wordless Wednesday, Thursday Thirteen, Fridays Feast or Saturdays Scavenger Hunt. Find one that you find the most creative and tell us why.

· As time was short I only browsed through a few blogs before I found Caylynn’s Contemplations. She is a Saturday Photo Hunters participant and I know how you need to have a creative mind in order to post a good picture for the theme.

3)There are a lot of contests out there in blogger world. Please list one that sounds interesting to you.

· Only one comes to mind right now. Amy’s Random Thoughts Scavenger Hunt.


Here's a hard one that you don't need to do, as its not for points. Michael went to college. Where did he go to college and find a picture of the mascot. Dont forget to check out Valtools Box for pictures from last night!!!

University of Central Florida, a picture of the mascot can be found here:

Deb on the run

3.Getting Paid to blog sounds great
Help Laughing Muse Blog for a Year

so if the bonus question isnt for points whats the use? ;) I will post my answer on my blog this afternoon.

Samantha Lucas said...

Definitely praying for Heather. My uncle had brain surgery a few years ago, it was horribly nerve wracking for the entire family.

ChupieandJ'smama said...

I'm praying for Heather and her family.
1. #44 Myrna- Myrna did a post about her husbands illness and how even after all they've been through she can find the miracles that God placed before them. I think most people wouldn't have seen them and may have become bitter by what happened to their family.
2. #88 Haggie- Wordless Wednesday- Her pictures are very beautiful therefore she is very creative with her photography. Her kids are adorable :)
3. www.5minutesformom.com- Win a free IPod. Who wouldn't want a free IPod Nano?
Where Michael went to school - University of Central Florida-several mascot pix can be found: http://ucfathletics.cstv.com/view.gal?id=5381&template=player_gallery
Man that was hard.

YoungMommy said...

I got sucked in before it was too late...

1) http://www.wilddaisies-pj.blogspot.com -- I chose PJ to visit today. She has 4 beautiful daughters. I guess I would have to say that is what I found to be most interesting, since I have 4 boys and one more on the way (I do have one daughter, though, too)!

2)http://goofygirl.org -- Goofy Girl participates in Thursday Thirteen. Her TT this week was a list of random things to which questions for her readers were associated. It was fun to answer the questions and learn more about her, a fellow TTer, too!

3)My favorite right now is the Mother’s Day Give Away extravaganza that 5 Minutes for Mom is hosting. There are currently two contests open, with more to come!

Okay, NOW I'm off to schoolwork with my kiddos!!

Heart of Rachel said...

1. Interesting participant - Michelle of Big Blueberry Eyes
A wonderful blog that expresses the essence of unconditional love of parents to a child with Down Syndrome.

2. Participant who participates in memes -
Sparky Duck of Philly Transplant participates in Thursday Thirteen

3. Interesting contest -
Mother's Day Giveaway I find this interesting because it's a lovely tribute to mom bloggers.

Agapetospaidiske said...

1. I checked out 48.Booklogged and left her a comment. I found her post on eye opening moments very interesting and left her a comment on one of my moments.
2. I loved 37.Mercy's maid’s Thursday 13. All dogs should remember these things!
3. A Reader’s Journal will draw a name for a free, signed copy of Rises the Night by Colleen Gleason on May 15th.

Hm, did Michael go to University of Central Florida? If so their mascot is the knight and a picture can be found at: http://www.michaelrhing.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/09/ucf-logo.gif

Lynne said...

1. Visited Robin (#83) - She did an interesting interview. I was also reading about her DD who is having some medical problems.

2. Visited Stephanie (#65) - She has a Thursday 13 about all the reading challenges she's joined. I love to read about other readers!

3. Right now, I like the sound of the Mother's Day contest at 5 Minutes for Mom - the one where you can win an iPod. I haven't entered because I know I don't have a rat's chance of winning, but it's fun to read about anyway.

I see a lot of others have found Michael's school UCF (University of Central Florida) and the Golden Knights. My sister also went there.

Robin said...

1) visted #78 Robin.
Oh my goodness, can you say scrumpalicious! That mom has her hands full but it looks like it's all under control. check out her cutiepies below
http://threebeautifulgirls.blogspot.com/

2) This one was easy.. the first blog I looked at was #3 Michael (your dh) He participates in quite a few Meme's. I like the Friday Feast one. :-)

3) #23 Adventures in Baby Wearing and the No Makeup Contest

Sarah said...

1. 47 Green Tuna, I enjoyed reading this blog, interesting fact: she has a rabbit called Fabio!

2. 13 Teamouse does lots of daily memes, she is very creative and even has a knitted Give-A-Way contest.

3. Tricia is having a travel writing contest over at http://triciagoyer.blogspot.com/2007/03/stories-for-buttons.html

booklogged said...

1. Interesting blog: #25 PJ's blog, Wild Daisies
I enloyed seeing pictures of her as a teen and her mom as a teen. Interesting to compare the hairstyles and clothes of the two different time periods.

2. Daily meme:#56 Simone participates in both Wordless Wednesday and Weight Loss Wednesday.

3. Contest: By the Decade Reading Challenge hosted by 3M.

Chelle said...

#1) Interesting PArticipant would be Green Tuna. I adore the title of the blog, for one thing.

#2) Participant doing a daily meme would be Valtools ToolBox. Male bloggers fascinate me.

#3) Blogging contest would be Adventures in Baby Wearing's Bloggers Without Make-up Contest.

dew said...

1.I picked Karen, because that is my MIL's name,and I love my MIL. An interesting thing about Karen is that she has cats for office mates!
http://overbackyardfence.blogspot.com/

2. I chose Ruth because that's my supervisor's name and my daughter's middle name and my grandmother's name! She participates in Wordless Wednesday. I thought her Wordless Wednesday was creative, because instead of just one photo, she posted a series that told a story.
http://pattonfamilymusings.blogspot.com/

3. I chose Adventures in Baby Wearing, because wearing babies is cool! She is part of a Blogger's Without Makeup contest. I am a blogger who is ALWAYS without makeup, so I thought that was a pretty interesting contest.
http://adventuresinbabywearing.blogspot.com/

I hope Heather's surgery went well today.

dew said...

Oops, I didn't read the other comments til after posting mine, so I hope I won't be disqualified for naming the same contest a few other people named!

TeaMouse said...

I went through the list and saw the name Hootin Anni, after a quick glance at her blog it was easy to see that she too needed some encouragement so I gave her a bit. It seems she's been to the emergency a couple of times with a high heart rate. She hasn't posted since May 30th. I hope she is doing ok. Send her some well wishes.

1. I decided to visit Larry, he is #53 on the list of entrants. I don't read many blogs written by men so I thought I'd try it out. He lives in British Columbia, Canada so I was immediatley intrigued as my Dad and sis both live there. His first article that I read was about gardening naked and it just made me giggle at the thought of anyone doing that. What about the bees? Anyway he mentions this guy named Des Kennedy who apparently gardens in the nude. He's got a very nice blog that I plan to visit again.

2. I was visiting #11, Michelle. She does a Slow Cooker Thursday. I had never heard of it before and I think it's a great idea. I love to use my slowcooker, especially when life gets hectic. It ensures we eat properly even when we are rushed for time. She even had a recipe for Cranberry Baked Apples.....Mmmmmmmmmmmm!

3. Scribbit is doing a writing contest...the prize is some Alaska Wild Berry Products. A good way to hone up your

Amy said...

Heather and her family are definitely in my prayers today. She has been so wonderful through all of it.

1. I chose 55. Joe Cool because I liked the name and then as soon as his blog appeared he had a Mustang at the top! He also loves American Idol and I agree with him on his picks for the top two! I will be back to visit him more often.

2. I chose 76. Young Mommy (a.k.a. Organized Chaos) at random and loved her blog and got caught up reading her archives! She does several memes and today's TT was about her 13 favorite things. Bible was #1 on her list! Now who could go wrong with choosing her? I love the pictures of her kids at the top of her blog. Again, I will be back to visit her.

3. At 5 minutes for mom the girls are always having a contest with GREAT prizes. I haven't entered this one yet, but need to @

I could give the iPod nano to my daughter for a graduation!

2~ Participant's Meme: #16 Homeschool Mommy ~ Menu Plan Monday ... Her's are extra creative because she goes the extra mile and even posts pictures by ever meal! Love that! http://homeschoolmommyfromoklahoma.blogspot.com/

Eye of the Rainbow said...

Brandy said...

1.) I visited TeaMouse (she's #13) because I liked her name. I really liked reading her Thursday 13 list ... the interesting part (to me anyway) was that she likes tea. I LOVE tea. Oh, and that she likes zoning out to The Sims sometimes. I haven't met too many people who share those interests with me lol. I left leave her a comment.

2.)Cindi (she's #91) from Cindi's Corner participates in PhotoHunters. I'm kinda partial to PhotoHunters, since I'm participate in it too, so I know how creative you have to get with the themes given.

3.) The Bloggers Without Makeup contest sounds fun. It's held at Adventures in Babywearing (she's #23 on the list)

and Michael went to University of Central Florida and the official mascot is a male gold-armored black knight named Knightro. The UCF academic logo, however, is a Pegasus.

Sparky Duck said...

SingForHim said...

1. I visited #76, YoungMommy. The pics of her kids were so cute, and it looks like she does all kinds of creative things with them. Esp liked the one with all their faces painted.

2. I did Goofy Girl's Thursday Thirteen list, which was a list of questions with subjects in alphabetical order. Very creative. I wonder if she'll do the second half of the alphabet next week?

3. Contest: The mother's day giveaway at 5 minutes for mom. Only because I gave my husband an ipod for his birthday and I've been coveting it!

Brandy said...

Ooops, just realized I forgot to include the link to the pic of UCF's mascot. Here's where I found one:

JennyMcB said...

1. http://cherishtw.blogspot.com - she tried to put up a TT13 list, but alas her technical skills were just a tad shy of making it work. I left a comment! I found it interesting that she had it all, the code and heading, but no list.


2. Adventures in Babywearing- Wordless Wednesday, http://adventuresinbabywearing.blogspot.com/
What a beautiful simple picture of two toddlers sharing.

1. Participant of the hunt I picked is Amy's husband, Michael. I was browsing on the names and chose Michael coming from my favorite character in a series Michael Scofield. Haha. Not knowing it's Valtool's Box. Anyway, interesting for me are the Flashback Fridays and his answers on Friday's Feast. Haha, yes who would want to own a copy of Gigli.

2. Another participant is Laura from myquotidianmysteries.blogspot.com. She's a participant too in Thursday
Thirteen. Her blog URL alone tells me she's got to be creative. :)
