A Bird in the tree #FunnyFriday October 2015

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Someone Else’s Genius (

1. What are you looking at? Ugh! I knew I should have bought those new privacy shades!
2. That's right little worm. Keep coming closer. Just a little bit closer.
3. Maybe I should have chosen the Mulberry Bush! The view was so much better!
4. Maybe if I sit really still, the cat will just keep moving passed. I really do not want to have to beat him up again. I don't know when he will learn to leave me alone.
5. Are you sure you are getting my good side? …

Spooktacular Poetry.


Did I scare you?! 

Probably not. In my house, boo is heard quite a bit lately. Gigi is obsessed with trying to scare us. She actually succeeds more often than I would like to admit. She is a cutie patootie. We just did a photoshoot with her. I cannot wait to share this pics, once we have them! I think you all will love them! 

My friends and I decided to join together and share some spooky poetry with all of you! Here is my contribution! I hope you enjoy it! 

Poem 1:

Black cats.
Orange pumpkins.
Owls going hoo hoo.

Bats and witches in the sky.
Old trees leaving spooky shadows in the sky.
Ornery trick or treaters, playing more tricks than treats.

Boo boo boo.

Poem 2:

As the darkness settles on the world,
she takes her search out into the streets.
Searching and looking,
constantly alert as she wanders around,
trying to find that which must be found.

She looks here and she looks there.
She looks all over.
She looks everywhere. 

She looks in the streets,
and in the alleys too.
She looks in the bars,
and st…

Warm and Fuzzy #UseYourWords October 2015

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked between four and six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are:
play dough ~ toilet ~ fuzzy ~ frantic ~ driving
They were submitted by: (Thank you for such randomly awesome words!!!! For the record, fuzzy is my absolute most favorite word. True story. I am not really sure why. I just love it! Z is my favorite letter, so it probably helps that there are two in the word!)

On a side note... I will not even tell you guys the things Chad said, when I told him the words I was assigned this month! One of the things I love about Chad is that he is always interested in my subjects …

Smell My Feet #SecretSubjectSwap October 2015

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week fifteen brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Trick or treat? It was submitted by: you so much for such a simple yet complex subject!!)
Trick. Treat. Trick or treat. Such a broad subject. Wow. The first thing that comes to mind is Gigi in her owl costume last year. She was the cutest thing ever. I may be biased, but she was pretty dang cute. This year she will be Minnie Mouse. What will your children be?! I am already thinking about next year. I know, weird. I am seriously going to confess something...
I have never really celebrated Halloween. As I have said before, my dad was not one for really celebrating holidays. I have never really dressed up. I have mostly used a few accessories, but never any amazing costumes. Well, one of m…
