I was recently tagged by Donna K. Weaver (she's wonderful; if you're not following her already, what are you waiting for?) and with the move and everything, it took me a while to find time to do this.

I get to answer some questions and tag some others. :D

1. Do you think you're hot?
I just moved back to Tennessee. Do you know how humid it can get here?

2. Upload a picture or wallpaper you are using at the moment.


I've posted both of these pictures before--these are the four main characters from the two Rising books I'm working on, drawn by my talented friend Holly.

3.When was the last time you ate chicken?
Yesterday, grilled.

4. The song/songs you listened to recently.
Oh, I listen to music all the time. Let's's one I've been listening to a lot recently. Owl City (I LOVE Owl City!), "To The Sky":

5. What were you thinking while doing this?
-I'm so behind on my blogging.
-Coffee at 8PM might not be the best idea ever, but it sure tastes delicious.
-So. Much. Editing to do before July.
-Have to get the kids ready for bed soon.
-Other random stuff.

6. Do you have nicknames? What are they?
A lot of other things over the years, from Laurie to Liz. (Liz was my sister's nickname for me, because my initials before I was married were L.Z.)

  1. Love learning this about you. And I love the video. Owl City rocks.

  2. You stinker!! Thanks :D

    And I love Owl City, too!!! I really like Fireflies.

    Hope you're getting settled as much as possible and that Tennessee has welcomed you with wide open arms (and an ice chest, lol)! Coffee at 8PM = PRODUCTIVITY!!! Good work!

    I'm behind on blogging, too...with moving. Ugh. Talk soon!

  3. thanks, laura! you are so sweet!

  4. Thanks for tagging me :-)
    I also LOVE Owl City!

  5. Almost everyone has mentioned heat and humidity for this tag - I see a trend!

  6. Nice to see I'm not the only Owl City fan! Such sparkling music; I love it.

    We could use some heat/humidity here - this was the first weekend in months where we didn't get rain on at least one of the days. It's been a long time since we've been complaining about heat!

  7. I love the wallpaper pics. They're great. Holly is very talented indeed.

  8. Loved learning more about you! I'm off to visit your links.

  9. It's amazing how interesting random little details about people can be :) Also, I've given you an award on my blog (, which you can come and claim if you'd like to.
