Writer's Workshop-She that leaves no stone unturned



You all know how much I love a good writing prompt, right? Mama Kat never disappoints. If you haven't participated yet, now is your chance!


This week I chose to write about "she that leaves no stone unturned".


She's a beauty, I know. But that's beside the point.


"She that leaves no stone unturned" is a bit of a perfectionist. Although she wouldn't agree.


She alphabetizes her movies AND spices AND her closets are as clean as the rest of her house.


She's a bit like me, if I do say so myself, except I don't alphabetize my spices and my pantry doesn't always look perfect.


Who am I kidding? I don't hold a candle to this chicks methodology.


After I flunked out of a rigid exercise program after 4 sessions she decided to give it a try. And she completed the WHOLE program, turning her already tiny frame into a lean muscle machine.


When I was moving I called her up specifically because I needed her to make sure my grandma's china didn't get damaged in the move. She didn't disappoint. Isn't she lucky to have someone that always thinks of her?


When she puts her mind to something, she does it perfectly, and that's why she's "she who leaves no stone unturned".

I'm lucky enough to call her my "sister in law". Sometimes her name gets really long and tiresome. I wonder if it gets long and tiresome to her too?

*"She that leaves no stone unturned" is on the right, and "she that looks like a super model and has the best common and directional sense around (and is a GOOD person)" is on the left. I'll write about her sometime too, if the writing prompt prompts me! :)

Hi Angie, Really enjoyed reading you blog. Take care Sarah

Darla said...

They both look like super models. I'm jealous 'cause I wish I could be a bit more organized and have a house that I could brag about being clean, let alone closets! I guess, we can't all be gifted in that department but I think that's what I wish for the most: more time to clean and organize! (and work on the super model status!) :)

Lacey in the Sky said...

Sheesh- she is gorgeous! Some girls just have it all!

Susie said...

Darla is right-they BOTH look like supermodels and I too am jealous. I always thought that if you had the model looks, then at least your closets had to be unkempt.
I guess 'she who leaves no stone unturned' really does have it all!

You are lucky to have such a neat friend, and she's lucky to have YOU in her life. Glad the china survived the move!

Stu Pidasso said...

Good friends are hard to find, but a good in-law is just plain lucky!! And the supermodel look?? I learned a long time ago that people are like Xmas presents, you never really know what your getting until you get past the wrapping. My "best gift" ever was in plain old brown paper!! GB!

Shannon said...

You just described me, lol. My spices are alphabetized and my drawers, and closets are organized, BUT I hate to clean. Weird huh?

Liz said...

What a great post - you are blessed to have her in your life - and she is blessed to have a sister in law that appreciates her wonderful unique qualities.

Shannon said...

I wish I could be one who leaves no stone unturned but alas...that is not what God made me to be. If you can't be it yourself, it's awfully nice to have one nearby!

Melissa said...

Wow, they are both beautiful! And able to find their way out of a paper bag and pack china?

These girls have it all...and you for family! Who could ask for more.

Weeksie50 said...

She is absolutely beautiful...
and it seems like you have a great relationship with her.. You are blessed to have such a great extended family...

Jen said...

everyone needs to have a person like that in there life. She is beautiful.

Casey's trio said...

Lucky you to have such a great friend/SIL. I bet she will love reading this post!

Katy Lin :) said...

beautiful :) isn't it great to have friens like this who just happen to be stuck with us because they're family, too! :)

Heather said...

You have a great s-i-l. Loved reading your story this week.

les_mason_curt said...

They both are beautiful, you SIL looks like a super model. She is so pretty. I wish I was organized like her... I could only wish for my closets to be as clean as the rest of my house.... But if they were where the heck would I throw all of my junk when company came over with no notice... HA!

mannequin said...

It's wonderful to have such a friend but to have one that is a family member tis a far better thing!
I mean, you can ALWAYS call on family!

Jaime Ann said...

Loved your story this week. A good sister in law is hard to find.

Amy said...

"she that leaves no stone unturned" looks just like Cameron Diaz...I'm jealous. And because her house is THAT clean and organized :D

Melissa said...

I wish I could be that organized... How does she find the time?? So nice that you have her around to help with things like that!!

Michelle said...

Kacey Randolph said...

Does she give lessons? Or free pep talks? Ha! Ha! I loved reading this post. It was beautifully written (as usual) and a really fun read. Your SIL sounds fabulous and both she & your friend are gorgeous!

marina said...

Sam_I_am said...

I need someone like her in my life. I'm "She who walks right by the stones and never notices them to turn them over." :-)

Amy McMean a.k.a McSunshine said...

Lucky you. My almost sister-in-law just talks alot. But I like her anyway ;)

Rachel said...

Both of you are just gorgeous!

YOu are lucky to have such a good relationship with your sis-in-law. I keep trying for that, but it doesn't seem to stick.

Lucky for me I am proud to have a really fantastic sister who is super-model pretty too.

Lula! said...

You, and those who surround you, are beautiful.

We cannot be friends. I do not measure up. Sigh...

Kidding!

les_mason_curt said...

PS- I have something for you @ my blog! Have a great day!

Ashley said...

Your description of the two people in the photographer had me LOLing.

Sometimes Sophia said...

Great post. I also know someone who alphabetizes her spices, and she's such a nice lady. Isn't it great that being anal and being nice aren't mututally exclusive?

Sam_I_am said...

answering your question from my post, yeah, that story is completely 100%, except they wanted to make my camp name "Smokey" but I chose "Sparkle" instead.

Mama's Losin' It said...

Wow! They're both gorgeous!! She sounds like a gem.

Momma Trish said...

Your previous commenters are correct. They both look like supermodels. Gorgeous girls, with great gifts. (Accidental alliteration ... must stop now ...)

Nicole said...

I just got a sister in law and she has yet to figure out her wife/mother duties. My brother does all of the cooking and cleaning while she sleeps in. Granted she is pregnant but boy when that baby comes she is in for a world of lifestyle shock. I wish I were as organized as you and your SIL!!!

Cecily R said...

She's beautiful (they both are) and it sounds like she is just as beautiful on the inside!!

Jessica said...

Love reading your writer's workshops. She is beautiful!! Sounds like she is an awesome person!

Deb said...

very well written and nice interpretation of the prompt. A+ for you, little lady! alas, the in-law situation is one thing you and i DO NOT have in common.

Debbie said...

ANGIE!! You are toast...how dare you out me about the spices! :) I was extremely flattered by your kind words. I have to set the record straight though, your house is always cleaner than mine. Just so your readers know the truth. I miss you guys so much!!!
Love - Chuck

Veggie Mom said...

Awwwwww...I love my SIL, too! It's nice when everyone can be friendly. I've got some friends who aren't really on good terms with their in-laws. Can you say "Awkward"?

Gunnisac Sandersons said...

Please tell me what the exercise routine was that you tried. I am up for a challenge! Your sis-in-law is gorgouse! Is that how you spell that word? Anyway, it is always great to know someone who is super organized, and a tad of a perfectionist!

Gwen said...

After reading I wish she was my sister in law too. She's extremely lucky to have someone that loves her so much also. :) Great post.

Aubrey said...

Awww, such a sweet post. I would say she is pretty lucky herself!

BTW, there should be a law against someone being that beautiful and that organized. LOL

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

Beautifully written! And beautiful pic too :)

And I was just sitting here looking at your slide show, I LOVE all of the pictures, so sweet and cute and all completely frameable!!

Tash said...

where is her blog?? I need a few lessons in spice alphabetization. She is gorgeous. How lucky you are.
thanks for your nice comments about beach photos.
And thanks for letting me know there are people in this world like your sister in law...so it is possible??
Show me the way!! to her teachings!!!

Becky said...

Anyone would be blessed to know someone like her. P.S. I think yuo are both hot ;-)

Laura said...

She is beautiful and she sounds really wonderful! I think you are pretty amazing too!

Connie said...

Great post...you guys are lucky to have such a close relationship!!

* TONYA * said...

Ha, I really love your descriptions of them. Yes those names must get very long and tiresome after a while :)

girlytwins said...
