Jamie’s BLOG – DAY 159 :: beauty quest

8 Jun

Today I decided to go look for beauty. It’s a bit like a walk in the park I suppose. I wasn’t sure what I would find but I knew it would be an adventure. So I begged Justin to come along and off we went.

Random Adventure + Beauty Mission = Beauty Quest.

Here’s what happened on my first Beauty Quest (more than I could have imagined!).

We found flowers…

And trees….

And the inside of trees…

And red roses….

And ducks kissing…

And baby geese learning to ruffle their feathers…

An ugly duckling that didn’t fit in… (But we know the end of that story!)

And a kind soul who gave us some bread so we could feed the birds too!

It was beautiful. A surprise. And a really quick, fast, easy way to add beauty to the end of the weekend.

Beauty Quest it.
I highly recommend it.

(Sometimes free is the best kind of fun.)

More tomorrow.

BLOG – GIFT DAY 320 a month of inspiration: free fun!

16 Nov

Today, in my month-long nod to inspiration, I share free fun. 
I love fun.

And I really love FREE fun.

So tonight, in honor of the season, I share some fun and FREE inspiration:

31 Days of Free Winter Fun

This one’s from Redbook and worth the read.

From Hot Cocoa (which I am literally making right now — after I started popping popcorn and forgot to put the kernels in the machine as it whirred and whirred in the kitchen) to creating the best  snowman ever, these ideas have something to please everyone.


More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless!}

Day 217: f*ing friday :: free fun

5 Aug

Today continues the weekly series, F*ing Fridays, which will coincidentally occur on Friday. I mentioned some of my favorite F words back on Day 5, including: Fearless, Fabulous, Fine, Fun, Faith, Freedom, Forgiveness, to name a Few.

Last week I dove into the word Family.

Today’s F*ing Friday is dedicated to the word(s):
Free Fun

As in, words with friends.

If you haven’t shared Words With Friends lately, then you might want to check this out.

There’s something FUN about playing games, and there is certainly something FABULOUS about playing for FREE too.  Put the two together and you get FREE FUN: the magic formula where total enjoyment + a cost-free price tag = something greater than the sum of its parts.

Life’s best moments find me in Free Fun:
Walks on the beach.
Picnics in the park.
Reading a book borrowed from a friend.
Holding hands.
Laughing until my sides hurt.
Crying until I laugh.

Tonight, I have five Words With Friends games going at the same time with friends and family.  It’s certainly free, and it’s definitely fun.  It’s like Scrabble from a distance.  On my cell phone.  With me at all times.

And, as I sit here typing this post, I am toggling between my computer and my phone (I just played the word “SINK” – 20 points! You’re up Justin! Watch out Pam, Andy, Ellen and Brian!).  This game has me addicted, staying up late trying to find words to make out of my collection of vowels (while trying to keep my eyelids open and my brain awake).

I can tell you this:  “hotney” is not a word, nor is “rase” — I tried both.

If you could play the words Free Fun in Scrabble you would get a base of 13 points.

But, having the ability to play free games with people you love from far, far, away, well, that gets more points in my book than a triple word score, any day.

It’s good for my head, and my heart.
It’s free.
And, it’s fun.

Your turn.
What’s on your Free Fun list?
