Fun Monday #37: you pick it!

Hi y'all. In a fit of bravery (or total stupidity), I have volunteered to be your hostess with the mostest for Fun Monday, the October 15 edition. And as is the custom, I will attempt to keep this post on top through the week.

I am pretty new to the blogworld and totally new to Fun Monday, though I really really enjoyed my first foray.

Anyway, I'm kind of a Nervous Nelly about this so I am asking for your kindness and assistance with picking next week's topic. (I am also a virgin on the poll thing, so if this doesn't work right ... well, that would kinda be typical!)


Here are some choices. I really did like the book one that has been kicking around for a couple weeks, so I am leaving that one as an option. I totally think that one is still viable. Eventually, it will be picked as the topic du jour!

Option 2: Describe your meeting with your spouse/significant other. I do understand that one blogger has an ongoing serial happening (I see you, Willowtree!) on a similar topic, but he could complete it as a Fun Monday grand finale! Anyway, I am really looking for "meet cute" stories. I have one that I am anxious to tell about how I met the Wonderhubby. Perhaps you have one, too. And it doesn't have to be your actual current sig/other. Perhaps the "meet cute" story is a former boy/girlfriend... or even a best friend. (I have a story for that too!)

Option 3: Weird pet behavior. We all love our pets, of course. But some of them are a little ... ahem ... weird. They drool, they take over your favorite chair, they sleep in poses that, er, show no shame. So, does your cat use the toilet? Do your fish swim upside down? Does your dog suck on stuffed animal noses and march her front feet up and down all freakin' night????? (Sorry, forgot myself there for a second. Yes, I have a story for THAT one too!) Write about it and document with photos, of course!


So there are some choices. What rocks your world? A decision will be made by Wednesday night to give you plenty of time to get yourself together for next Monday. And be kind. I told you I'm new at this! Also, you can start leaving your "I'm in" comments on this post. (You're in, right?)

What should the October 15 Fun Monday topic be?
The first book that impressed me or that I remember from childhood
How did you and your spouse or significant other meet?
My wonderful -- but TOTALLY WEIRD -- pet free polls

So, now that you have voted, see below for my Fun Monday: the view from my porch edition (finally!).

You are already a wonderful hostess. Just volunteering to put up with all of us is fabulous.
...and, as far as the topic, I love being a part of the voting process...then I on rare occasion, post something random that has nothing to do with the topic.

I definitely voted for How you Met Your Hubby!

I just wanted to let you know about a free giveaway I'm hosting at my site. It's for all-natural bath and body products made in Texas. Come check it out - and help spread the word! I will continue to hold more giveaways over the next few weeks as well!
