It’s our 14th Birthday Today!

 

It’s Friday, the 13th, and it’s your LUCKY Day!

 

We’re celebrating our 14th birthday today.  Yee-haw!  And the fillies have a FUN acrostic word game for you because, well, we love words!

Even better, you can win if you play.  The more you play, the more chances you have to WIN!

 

14 Winners!   $14 Amazon Gift Cards!

 

Here’s the scoop for our version of an acrostic:

Choose one – or more – of the 14 western-themed words below.  (Remember, each acrostic will count as one entry.)

 

We’ll keep the word game easy, and no acrostic will be rejected, but we’d love it if you can use one letter of each word to describe what you love about western romance.  Or Petticoats & Pistols.  Or cowboys.  Get it?

 

 

Easy, right? 

Fun?  Definitely!  

Let’s get creative!

Please make each acrostic a separate comment to make it easier for us to count your entry.

Winners will be announced on Sunday.

 

Ready?  Set?  Go!
