C is for Coffee and Candy #FunnyFriday February 2016

Today’s post is February’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 five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they have come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

Funny Friday  150 X 150.jpg
Here’s today’s incredible picture. It was submitted by the genius at The Bergham Chronicles.
Okay, yeah, me. I submitted this pic. :)

25 - The Bergham's Life Chronicles - Feb 2016.jpg

1. Gigi: When Mom has coffee, she's happy. When mom is happy, I get candy. I'll just be putting this right here. Now, where is the candy aisle?!

2. Gigi: I'm not even 2 1/2 and they have me doing the shopping. At this rate, I'll be doing the laundry by my next birthday. Is it too late to be adopted?!

3. Me: Gigi, don't put things in the cart! Oh. Coffee?! Carry on.
Me to Chad: Definitely my kid.

4. Chad: Did you tell her to put that in the cart?!
Me: Nope.
Chad: If cookies end up in the cart, it wasn't me.
Me: Sureee.

5. She comes by it honestly. I started drinking coffee at five. We did not prompt her to put the coffee in the cart. It was a very proud moment though. As for the aforementioned cookies, we left with two types of mysteriously acquired cookies. Oh, and Gigi did leave with organic jelly beans.

  1. Like Mama, like daughter, such a proud moment.
    I loved this picture, Jules, so cute!

    1. Thank you!! It will forever be a favorite memory of mine!!

  2. Four!! Now if you can teach her to MAKE you a cup, you're in business!

    1. She can!! With the Keurig. She just kinda did it one day. We don't let her, because it is dangerous for her, now that we've moved the Keurig. She amazes me none the less.

  3. They should pay you for loading up the cart!

  4. LOL! Husbands never grow up either. Love the pic!

    1. No, no they don't. LOL. Thank you!!

  5. Hey you gotta teach them young, shopping, laundry, dishes, That's the age when they actually want to help, when they get older it's like pulling teeth just to get them to pick up their shoe. Great job this week!

    1. She's so good right now. She loves helping with all kinds of chores. The one thing she refuses to do?! Pick up her own toys. It baffles me.

  6. All in all a very successful groceries run, LOL!

  7. This is funny. I once watched a little girl who, from the story she told me, got bored of her mom talking to someone she ran into at the store and decided to load up on brownie box mixes. I think she put two or three in the cart. :) When mom got home and found the mixes, she was a bit surprised. ;)

    But hey! At least Gigi put coffee in the cart rather than something for herself (unless it was actually her putting the cookies in the cart). I love that she thinks by her next birthday she'll be doing the laundry! You should her to that! ;)

    1. LOL. She actually does help with laundry. She also does dishes, vacuums, cleans... She is basically willing to help in every way, except for picking up her own toys. LOL

Touched for the Very First Time March 2017 #UseYourWords

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to 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 is the challenge, here is 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: Tetris ~ Rollerblades ~ Big Hair ~ Rubik’s Cube~ Like A Virgin ~ Neon They were submitted by: Tamara of Confessions of a part-time working mom(Thank you for the awesome words, Tamara. I kinda hate you though. I had two solid plans for this month's words (I NEVER have plans, and this month I had TWO plans), and neither could be applied to these words, so I had to strugggggllllleeeeee..... It's okay, after reconsidering our friendship, I decided I still love you!)
So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…

The Game of Life Jan 2017 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a the first Secret Subject Swap of 2017. This week twelve brave bloggers submitted a secret subject for someone else to use, and were assigned a secret subject prompt of their own. Each blogger gets to use their Secret Subject prompt, to write any blog of their choice. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Video games give a chance to escape sort of like reading a book or watching a movie but you, the player, is in control of the story or the actions needed to complete it. As technology advances so have games giving people vast open worlds to play in and characters who are more and more customizability. If you could turn any book, TV show, or movie world into a game what would it be? Lead us on an exploration of what it might be like playing this game (feel free to make up your own world if books, TV, or movies fail to give you a suitable choice).

Best Served Cold #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven 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: Tell us a revenge story, truth or fiction. It was submitted by: Jenniy of (Thank you for such an awesome topic!!)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. That is how it goes, right? They also say revenge is sweet. Cold and sweet. Sounds like sorbet or ice cream. Sounds yummy and sticky. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of one story. It is really all I ever think of, when I think of revenge. 

This really isn't my story to tell, but I know my friend won't mind me telling y'all, because I have asked permission many times over the years, and she always tells me I can. The she I am talking about, is my friend Opie. She is this amazing woman, who is one of m…
