In order to help me be a more regular blogger, I would like to start doing some 'regular' features other than BESTeam features.  But not sure where to start?!?!  I have had heard ideas about things like "Wordless Wednesday" or "Fantastic Find Fridays" but not sure what my features should be.  Any thoughts or suggestions I would love to hear from you!  Please leave a comment if you have any ideas!

And what about Mondays??  What about "Monday Meanderings" or "Miscellaneous Mondays"??  After looking up the definition of meander....I think I kind of like the idea of 'Monday Meaderings'.  It leaves room for so many things.  I have highlighted the parts of the definition that I particularly like :-)
