Big Word Wednesday

Thanks Apple for the idea...I had to participate this week. This word came out of my mouth more often this weekend than ever in my life. I'm not sure how it started, but once I said it, my husband didn't think it was a "real" word. So, I had to be right. And then I had to say it about 500 times to prove a point. Uh-huh. I did.


en*sconce
–verb (used with object), -sconced, -sconc·ing.
1.
to settle securely or snugly: I found her in the library, ensconced in an armchair.
2.

I'd like to ensconce myself in the recliner with a good book and a large diet coke...but I don't see it happening!

*I didn't post my word this week...first crazy week back in the school. That's my excuse.

i can attest to the fact that you said it at least 250 times ;o)
