Fun Facts Friday

Fun Fact: There's only a little over a week left until Easter! I'm going to spend the day with my sweet roomie and some of her family in Portland. Yay!

Fun Fact: Speaking of my roomie, she's engaged as of last Sunday!!! Yay, Adrienne! Here's a super adorable picture I took of her and her betrothed when he proposed by a waterfall. (And yes, those are rose petals on the rock!) They're getting married in August. I'm so excited for them!

Fun Fact: I really appreciate all of you! Thank you to those of you who took the time to answer my poll! I'm glad that, for the most part, my blog is pretty easy to navigate. (If you don't agree with that, though, feel free to leave me some suggestions in the comments section!) If you want to answer another poll question, just check out the sidebar. ;)

Fun Fact: I love reading! (Not sure if you were aware of that or not...) And I'm really looking forward to reading and reviewing a book called Yesterday's Tomorrow by Catherine West soon! Here's a picture of me with the book (which the author kindly agreed to send to me!):

Fun Fact:
I'm also grateful for all of you who shared your opinions with me about some possible future post series! I'm planning on incorporating the series Operation: Let's Get Published!, and I might do some sort of Behind the Scenes feature in regards to publishing/book review programs some time in the future (definitely something to keep in mind!). Also, I'm planning on using something similar to at least one of Vince's ideas (characters interviewing authors) starting with an interview next week with Leanna Sain, author of Gate to Nowhere--thank you, Vince, for the suggestion!

Fun Fact: The month of May means two very exciting things--the beginning of summer vacation and the return of Camp Humility! (For those of you who are new to the blog, Camp Humility is a week-long post series where we all head off to camp! We do games, outdoors activities, and spend our evenings around the campfire. Super fun!)

Fun Fact: I love Bug's Beads! On top of running two awesome blogs (Writing for Christ and Operation Encourage an Author), contributing to The Writers Alley, and writing/reading/etc., my blogging friend Casey has her own jewelry business called Bug's Beads. I've bought several pieces from her for family and friends and one necklace of my very own. She's a pleasure to do business with! Here's a picture of me wearing my lovely necklace:

And although I hesitate to mention a pig right under my the words of Porky Pig from Looney Tunes: "Th-th-that's all folks!" ;) Happy Friday!

LOL -- Wow, you're about bubbling right out of this blog! I think you must have a touch of spring fever along with the knowledge that you're almost finished with school for another year. Yeehawwwww!

Casey said...

Oh GREAT pictures!!! Both of you and the won you took of your roomie. TELL HER CONGRATULATIONS FOR ME!!!!

I so need to meet you in person, your personality is just "sparkling" this morning and I'm smiling wide, cause of it. :D

Okay so tell your roomie congrats from me too!!!!!! That is SO exciting! Holy cow : ) Grinning for her, they look so sweet together!

Camp Humility *sigh* brings back memories like it was just yesterday....; ) I can't wait!! I believe there were some memories made during that week baha, no?

AND CASEY I CALL HER FIRST :P We've got big plans on the East Coast! And we're taking a road trip to Rhode Island YAYAYAY and then down to Georgia (I think? right, Amber?) if Amber agrees, YAYAYAYAYAY!!! Not to mention our late night conversations I'm sure we'll be having, movie watching, book recommendations a-flying!

LINDSAY TOLD ME!!!!!! Eeeeek, how exciting! (And I can't believe Lindsay got to play violin for the proposal!!!) Ahhhhhhh!

Amber S. said...


Hahaha, I guess you're right! ;) I just had so much I wanted to say that it seemed best to just do a random "Fun Facts" post!

I am definitely excited about summer!!! Only two more weeks of classes and one week of finals left!!! Yeehawwwww is right! ;D


Amber S. said...


Thank you so much! The whole proposal plan was so sweet, and I was so blessed to be there to take pictures and help set up. :D It was awesome!

And I'm glad the pictures of me turned out alright! I'm not really that great at taking pictures of myself... ;)

I really want to meet you in person, too!! And what a compliment to say I have a "sparkling" personality! :) Thank you!


Amber S. said...


Awww! :)

Well, I wrote this post last night, so I guess I had a happy pill then?? I DID get to go to a carnival and a brother/sister hall pizza party last night, so I guess I did have a lot of energy LOL!

Camp Humility certainly does bring back a lot of happy memories! :) I can't wait to set it up again!!

And you know I would love to do a road trip with you and Amanda and Ashley! :D


Amber S. said...


I know--isn't it so exciting?! It was super romantic having Lindsay and one of the guys play violin while Adrienne and Evan had a picnic by the waterfall... *sigh* :)


Amanda said...

Awwwww, congratulations to your roomie on her engagement!! So sweet and what an incredible place to be proposed to! Praying the Lord will bless them with a lifetime of joy, happiness, and growing closer to Him and each other :) Ahhh, nothing says the new beginnings of Spring like a wedding proposal!

I enjoyed all your fun facts, my friend, and I'm looking forward to what you have in store!! I don't think I got to attend Camp Humility first time round so I'm really looking forward to all the fun!

And, LOL, I see we're planning an East Coast road trip! :D I love that Sunny picked RI to head to first! ;) I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE to meet you wonderful ladies, and Lord willing it will happen someday soon!! I am so blessed by your friendship, dear Amber, and that of the others here. Its amazing how the Lord brings people together! God is so good and I thank Him for introducing me to all of you :)

Casey's jewelry is so cute and it look so pretty on you! And knowing they were made with such love by a dear friend makes them all the more special :)

And you look so pretty in all your pics, girl! It's hard taking pics of yourself but you did a great job! And your room is so cute :)


Amber S. said...


I know--what a great way to ring in the spring season, with a super sweet marriage proposal! And my dear roomie asked me to be one of the bridesmaids, so I'm super stoked! ;)

Aw, I'd love to have you join in Camp Humility this year! I had so much fun putting together the posts last year. I loved that we not only had daytime activities, but also "campfire" time! :)

You know I'd love to meet ya'll, too!!! I've definitely been blessed by your friendships, and I'm so glad God allowed us all to meet each other. :)

And thank you for your sweet compliment! Casey's jewelry is quite lovely, and she has a lot of great designs!

Glad you like my room, too. ;) My roomie and I are both "neat freaks," so to speak, and my mom likes to send me holiday decorations, so we're pretty organized with some cute Easter stuff. ;)
