Top 10 Vacations I Want To Take-Writers Workshop

Top 10 Vacations I Want To Take

This week I wanted to write about ten vacations I want to take for the writer’s workshop.  Now when I say that there are places on this list that I don’t know if I will ever make it too because the thought of flying makes me super nervous.  Let’s get on to the list of places I would love to visit.

  1. New York City, New York-The first place I would like to explore is New York City.  I am sure after a few hours I would be overwhelmed by all the people, but I do think it is something that everyone to experience at least once in their life.
  2. Ireland-Six or so years ago I got into Celtic Thunder and because of that, I have wanted to go and explore Ireland.
  3. Yellowstone– I have been to Yellowstone so many times, and it is still one my favorite places to go on vacation.  I can’t get enough of it, and I hope that in the next few years I will be able to go back.  Even though I have been there so much, it changes so each time you go so even though I went a few years back I know will be totally different.
  4. Australia- I do have family that lives in Australia, and it is a place that I hope one day I can go and explore the entire country.
  5. England- I want to explore all of the historical sites and things like that.  There is so much history in Europe, and I hope that I can explore it all one day.
  6. Orlando, Florida-Last week I wrote that I want to go to Orlando so that I can go to all of the amusement parks that they have there.
  7. California- I want to go here because I want to visit all the amusement parks that they have.  I also would love to go to the San Diego zoo again because when we went there when I was younger it was raining so we didn’t get to see much because of the rain.
  8. Hawaii- I have always wanted to go to some place like Hawaii because I would love to live in a tropical environment because it seems nicer than Utah’s weather and I would love to live in a place where it doesn’t snow.
  9. Scotland- The reason I want to go here is the same reason I had for going to Ireland & England.  Europe is full of history and has tons of places I want to explore.
  10. Michigan- Back in 2003 my Grandma and I took a two-week vacation in Michigan and ever since then I have always wanted to go back and see what else I can find and see.  I can’t say enough good things about Michigan.  Everything about that state was amazing, and I hope I can go back one day soon.

Those are the ten places I would love to visit.  I have written a post like this before, and as I was looking back at that post, I realized that the places I wanted to haven’t changed in years.  If you want to check out that post, you can click here to read that post.  Where is one place you could love to visit?

St. Patricks Day 2016

St Patrick's Day 2016

This week for the writer’s workshop I am going to talk about what I will be doing today for St Patrick’s Day.  Not that I ever do anything special for it because since I don’t drink there really isn’t much to do.

One thing that I know, I will listen to one of my favorite musical groups Celtic Thunder. I found them a few years ago, and I have been hooked on watching and listening to their music for years. I also have gotten my grandparents and nephew into them.  On a side note, my nephew turned two this past November and one of the first things he said was Ireland, which always makes me laugh. Now whenever he hears their music or sees one of the DVD’s that I have he always says Ireland.

Since St Patrick’s day is during the week this year I am sure I won’t be doing anything other than working because most days it is all I  can do to get through work and I have no energy left to do anything after work.  If you are looking for something funny to watch you should watch this music video because it still makes me laugh.

I hope that you all have a great and safe St Patrick’s day this year!

Do you have any fun plans for St Patrick’s Day this year?


Here are all the prompts in case you want to join in.

  1. ThrowbackThursday: Choose a photo from a previous March and write a poem or a blog post.
    2. A time you were tricked.
    3. I wish I could…
    4. Write a blog post inspired by the word: Fishy.
    5. What is on your Spring Break “to do” list?
    6. Share how you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

My 5 Favorite Movies

5 Favorite Movies

I have finally slowed down with book reviews so I can now get back to posting about things other than only reviews.  I do love posting reviews on books but it does get old quickly.  Anyway today I am going to talk about my top 5 favorite movies.  This was hard for me to decided because I love so many movies but I did manage to get the list down to just 5.

  1.  Apollo 13-I have loved this movie since the first time that I saw it and I honestly don’t think that I will ever not watch this movie.  I am pretty sure that I could quote every line in this movie because I have watched it that many times.apollo
  2. Liar Liar-I still find myself quoting this movie all the time and it is one movie that I know will always have a place in my movie collection.Liar Liar
  3. Heritage by Celtic Thunder-I just randomly picked one of the Celtic Thunder DVD’s that I have and this one was the one.  I love all of their DVD’s and I hope that one day I will be able to see them live because I love their music & their DVD’s of the shows.Celtic-Thunder-Heritage-CD-Cover-celtic-thunder-17862030-300-300
  4. Short Circuit-This is a classic movie in my opinion and one that I am so glad I was able to find on DVD awhile back because it always makes me smile and it such a great movie for all ages to watch.Short-Circuit-Movie-Poster
  5. Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire-This Harry Potter movie was my favorite book and I also loved the movie. I like all of the Harry Potter movies & books but this one stands out among all of them for me.harry-potter-and-the-goblet-of-fire-cast-and-actors-in-this-movie-u2

Those are my top 5 movies.  There are hundreds more that I love as well but I wanted to just stick to the top 5 ones that I would chose to watch over and over again.

What movies do you love or do you want to recommend me to check out?

Currently. . .


This week I chose to write about number 2 which is: “Currently” a simple list of things you’re currently feeling as seen at Sometimes Sweet.

Reading: Right now I am reading a few different books to review.  Here is a list of a few of the ones I am reading: “The Letters” by Suzanne Woods Fisher, “Defending Wellton” by Kelli Kretzchmar, “Scarred Love” by M.S. Brannon.  I also have reviews coming up for some great books I have read the past few weeks.
Listening to: Right now I am listening to Country music mainly but I also am still loving Celtic Thunder and have been for the past few years.
Thinking about: I am thinking about a lot of crazy things that are going on in my life because I am not sure what is going on and what is going to happen in the next few months.  I wish I could write about the big thing but for now I can’t in respect for the others involved in the situation.
Watching: I am not really watching anything right now because I am not a huge TV fan.  I do love watching Lockup on MSNBC on Saturday nights but the past two weeks it hasn’t been on due to different things going on in the this country.  I also have been loving Dead Files on the Travel Channel.
Bummed out on: Watching people in my life struggling because of choices they made but it still hurts to watch them go through things I went through because they thought it wouldn’t happen to them.
Loving: I have been loving having this bunny is our backyard for the past few days.  We did catch him yesterday but I loved looking out into the background and seeing him there and also watching Sylvia stare at the shed in the backyard waiting to see it because she is interested in it and yet scared to death of it at the same time.
