ha! Your handwriting looks like that of a very fun and bouncy character! Not that I know anything about this, but that's the impression I got :o)

Yay, another Autumn fan! I look forward to movie nights with the family, right now, Calli doesn't have the attention span to enjoy them :)

My wife and I have movie night nearly every Friday and Saturday night. We've been doing it for years--ever since our kids still lived at home. These are my favorite nights of the week. NetFlix has made it even more convenient.

Wow we have very similar handwriting! No wonder I love your blog and you love mine LOL. Thanks for the awards. You may have noticed I cleared all mine off my blog to make it easier & faster for viewers to load. My new objective is to take the awards and immediately pass them on rather than collect them. Let's see how well I do!
Jingle said…
what a kind gesture...


appreciate you.
Jules said…
Okay FREAKY, last time I was in NC I wanted a shirt that read, "I survived the Dismal Swamp." :) That place fascinated me.

Thanks for the award, now I have some catching up to do :D

Carrie Burtt said…
Congratulations Ellie on your fun award...you deserve it...i have so enjoyed your whole blog!
:-)
Hart Johnson said…
Love your likes... I adore the name Dismal Swamp. It is so 'series of unfortunate events'. Congrats on the awards and new awardees!
LTM said…
Hey! Congrats and thanks to you! :o) And you are never ever ever going to believe I've been singing that same song all week! :D INSANE! Have you noticed everyone hates writing Q, X, & Z???

P.S.
I think I'd like fall in NC, too~
Ellie said…
Hart-I know what a great novel or idea to write about. Supposedly there is a certain kind of wood that has a luminous quality. People think there is a ghost in the swamp. In reality it is some kind of decaying wood...what do you believe?! I haven't been in the swamp at night...so I don't know~

Carrie-Thank you so much; I am behind, but will stop by and visit!

Jules-I want one, too! I now going to keep my eye out for one. If I find them, I'll let you know. I could send you one; We'll discuss when I find them. Actually I live in it..sort of kind of..it is out in my back yard! If you are down this way again, let me know! It would be fun to meet! (I'm going to check out the visitor's center, next time I go) That is freaky~

Jingle-I appreciate you;I may take you up on your offer! Hard to narrow it down... ;-D

Karen G-Wow, I do love your blog...I am just behind the 8 ball! I will be by,more often :-D
Weird-I was thinking the same thing! I am taking
a couple of online classes and thought about cleaning up my blog and listing them. I swear I was thinking this today~ I am behind even listing the awards. Neat that we share similar handwriting!!! You give me hope~

Lee-I love movie night; We do the same at our house! Thank you Netflix~ I enjoy going to the movies and watching them at home! I think it is a cozy, comfortable way to share a flick and you can control the intermission!!!

Will-If you are a 7 fan...it fits you would love autumn. Do you know there is a book dedicated to the #7! I haven't read it yet, but bought it for hubby! Once Calli reaches a certain age, YOU all will have a blast watching Disney or Pixar flicks together!
I so enjoyed that age, so much fun!!!


Jessica-You strike me as a fun, bouncy character... ;-D I can be, but it probably has a lot to do with how I was raised. My father use to BBQ in the winter on our porch, opening all the windows. He would do all kinds of crazy things! I am recruiting neighbors to do the Ghostwalk with me next month! It is an event held in the closest city, shrouded with the mystery of Nell Cropsey! The last
neighborhood party, I TP'd my neighbors vehicle, but they started it ;-D
Congratulations on the award Ellie, and thank you for passing it on to me with the other nine.
It is heart warming to recieve an award and I will show it with pride,

Yvonne.
Ellie said…
Leigh-No way...now, this is FREAKY~ I also have been playing, Who Want To Live Forever...us artist types want to leave our mark, somehow! Write, paint, poems,music, etc....

Ellie said…
Chrissy-oops, I did forget to add that detail...

Rayna-It is interesting to see others handwriting,after all the typing! ;-D

Lisa-You have a blessed week; I look forward to seeing you post again!

Alex-Yes, Fall will be extra special for you, this year! ;-D
Shellbelle said…
I like that you received the Happy 101 award (love what you did with it).

You're so sweet (as a cupcake) to pass it on to me. I'm on a break for the rest of the month as I get ready for my move to Jacksonville, so I hope you won't mind if I put off playing until I get settled in.

btw, I mix up printing and cursive also! I wonder what a handwriting analyst would say about that, lol.

Enjoy the cooler weather, I'm loving the lower temps in the morning for now and can't wait for some nice afternoons.
RaShelle said…
Ellie - Thanks. I've been wanting to play the handwriting game. Your handwriting is so nice. I'm excited. Congrats on your award and I love milk chocolate and like white too. =D
Wanda said…

Ellie said…
Kolleen-I look forward to seeing everyone's style!
Thanks, I do understand what you mean, but I tend to be the one that can't sit still...make the popcorn, get the drinks, etc. I am the concession stand, tee,hee! Loves to you, too~
Ciss B said…
Oh, my! Meant to come by sooner but was caught in a mess with this lovely computer...again.

I too like fall better, this year we had an almost Florida summer here in West Michigan - 70 degree dew points with 90 degree and above temps for almost every day since June it seemed.

This "tag you're it!" looks fun, but you will not see my writing left and right since my stupid scanner is on the fritz at the moment. Thanks for including me! :-)
