So now, I am introducing…..

*drumroll please*

The Summer Bored Games

Ever had one of those days… or weeks.. maybe even entire SUMMERS, where you just felt like you wasted eternities of time sitting around because you had NOTHING to do? Well, no more! We have the Summer Bored Games now! A fun and creative way to not only bust your own boredom, but to make others around you smile as well! Full of thoughtful challenges and crazy activities, the Summer Bored Games will give you a summer full of memories, fun, and so much more! The more challenges you complete, the more points you get. And on top of shooing boredom out the door, having fun, and making others’ days, you can even win an amazing prize by earning enough points!

Clara // Clara & Co.

K.A. // Cuddly Critters Blog

Allison // A Farm Girl’s Life


We four hosts (Megan, K.A., Allison, and I) will take turns posting a challenge post, one a week, for the month of July.

Each post will have 35 challenges, ranging from 1-4 points each – the harder the challenge, the more points you earn! Super hard or courageous challenges earn you Mega Points, which means 10 points instead of 1-4.

Participants collect points by successfully completing challenges. You don’t have to do the challenges in the order we list them, and you obviously don’t have to do them all (but then you won’t get as many points). However, you must complete any weekly challenges within the week that they are posted for those points to count. If you miss a week, feel free to do the challenges just for fun, but they won’t earn you any points toward the giveaway.
Also, please understand that honesty is always the best choice. Do not say you did a challenge when you really did not. No one wants that. I trust every one of you to follow the rules and not do that. Please don’t make me lose that trust.

In each of the challenge posts, a survey will be provided that participants can use to send their points from the completed challenges to a (only one) host blogger for a chance to win a prize (host bloggers are not eligible for the prize). However, if a participant would rather conquer the challenges just for fun and not win a prize, then they can simply complete the challenges however they wish and not worry about keeping track of points.

Prizes come in a three-tier winner system. Participants are entered for a chance to win the prize corresponding to their point range.

If, at the end of the challenge, you have 0-50 points, you are not eligible to win a prize. If you are in the lowest prize tier, which is for participants with 51-250 points, you have a chance of winning a $5 Amazon gift card. If you are in the middle prize tier, which is for participants with 251-400 points, you have a chance of winning a $10 Amazon gift card. If you are in the top prize tier, which is for participants with 401+ points, you have a chance of winning a $15 Amazon gift card.

At the end of the challenge, we’ll tally up each participant’s total points, fit them into the proper point tier, and random-generate the winners. If you work hard, you can earn yourself more of a chance for more of a prize!

Introducing…Meow!(+photo shoot)

Hey guys! I know it’s been FOREVER since I last did a post on this blog that I actually wrote! Crazy, right? I used to do one almost every day! πŸ˜‰ Or sometimes twice a day! Anyways, here I am!

So, as the title simply states, I am here to introduce to you a very very special member of the blog! MEOW!!!! Now, if you can’t tell, Meow is a cat. He is actually not very little, I just haven’t really made time to tell all of you about him! He is SO sweet and cute! I will do a quick little “Profile” about him, and then I will move onto the fantastic photo shoot of him! Which I think you guys will really love, as he is the most photogenic animal I have ever come in contact with! πŸ™‚ So first:



Meow is a sweet, gentle cat. His hobbies include being a good barn cat, taking naps, and watching mice. (as to how many he actually catches… I’m not sure. ;)) He also loves drinking bits of cow milk that are given to him. But his favorite thing to do is to play with his owner (aka the one in the family that loves him the most, me) and snuggle into her arms.

Gender: Boy
Breed: Uh..barn cat
Color: Tabby
Nicknames: Mow (pronounced ow (pain) with m), Mew… etc
Owner: Meeeee
Companions:… me? and he likes the chickens..and sometimes the milk cows

Okay, now that you know a bit about this handsome little fuzzball (who, did I mention is extremely lazy), I will move on to the adorable pictures of him! Hold on tight, because some of these are TOO cute for bearings!


Isn’t it neat how the light through the trees almost looks like a spotlight?

Yes, his neck is slightly longer and taller in the second one! XD The vacuum in the house started going at that moment, and he heard it and was trying to decide whether to stick around for some more modeling, or to run for his life. Thankfully he stuck with choice A. But I like to look at both of them, because in the first he’s just chilling there, and the next it’s a life or death choice on his mind. DSCN9759.JPG




HOW IS THIS CAT SO PHOTOGENIC?????? None of my other animals hold still enough for me to use the close-up setting!!! I LOVE YOU MEOW!



Is this not just super cute? He looks shocked. XD


This is one of my favorites! Just because of the lighting, clarity, and how the picture is centered!


This one is for sure my favorite. Look at those amazing eyes. I love this guy so much!


Anyways, there is the end of the photo shoot and introduction of MEOW!!!

Goodbye, and have a fantastic day! Also, please drop me a comment on which was your favorite pic, and how you’ve been lately! Miss you guys, and stay tuned, for an EXCITING post tomorrow that you will NOT want to miss!!!!
