Cocked & Loaded, Shootin’ Stars, & Blasting Giveaway Hop


First and foremost I want to say thank you to all those men and women in the military that fight for our freedom. I appreciate everything you do for us!


Happy Independence Day everybody! Thanks to Queen Tutt's World of Escapism and Close Encounters with the Night Kind for hosting this blog hop!

I don't really have much to say this time, other than what I opened with, just thanks to our troops. That and, God I love a man in uniform! To celebrate the 4th of July and participate in this hop, I want to give away an ebook of your choice to one lucky winner. This is open to US/INT since it's digital, so just fill out the Rafflecopter below and you're entered!

Don't forget to hop along to the other blogs. Most importantly, don't ever take the liberties you enjoy every day for granted and show support for those that risk their lives for yours!

  6. this year independence day was a little strange, we moved across the country 4 months ago so we had no idea where celebrations would be happening at and to top it off I fell 2 weeks ago and broke both my feet. Yup I managed to do both of them so I stayed home with ice on my swollen bruised feet and read.

  11. First let me say thank you for being apart of this hop and Happy late 4th of July.

    I had a wonderful 4th as I spent it with my kids and grandkids. We BBQ and popped fireworks at my place since I live out in the country and we had a blast. My 3yr old grandson likes the big ones - LOL

    1. Thanks for stopping by and for hosting the hop!

      Your celebration sounds a lot like mine. Went over to the inlaws, brother-in-law brought his fiance and stepson-to-be, and we cooked out and shot a few fireworks from the driveway. Except for the ridiculous heat, it was great!
