Snap, Crackle, Sizzle July 2016 #PoetryCollaboration

Welcome to this month's poetry collaboration! For this month, we chose the theme Sizzle. Hopefully you enjoy my contribution! Don't forget to check out all the other contributions!! 

When I first heard sizzle, I thought of a grill, and then fireworks. It is such a good word. I especially love it that it contains two Zs. Z is my favorite letter. I hope you enjoy...

Poem 1 (BBQ): 

Steaks, burgers, and chicken breasts.
Iced tea and lemonade. 
Zesty marinades, onions, and peppers.
Zealous laughter. 
Lazing around on lawn chairs. 
Eating, laughing, talking, making memories. 

Poem 2:

I miss the nights we spent together. 
I miss our talks and debates. 
I miss the kisses and caresses. 
I miss the steamy intimacy. 
I miss the feel of your body against mine. 
I thought you were so hot. 
I thought you were so intelligent and thoughtful. 
I thought I'd explode from the ecstasy you evoked within me. 
I thought nothing could match the intense passion between us. 
I thought our nights together would never end. 
I felt like together we could conquer the world. 
I felt like I genuinely mattered to you. 
I felt like one day I'd hear a sizzle when I touched you. 
I felt like our passion could set the world on fire. 
I felt like we belonged to each other. 
I wish I had been right about our future. 
I wish I had given you more of my time, and made more memories. 
I wish I didn't miss you so much. 
I wish I had told you about how I truly felt. 
I wish your body were pressed against mine right now. 
I hope you are happy. 
I hope you are loved. 
I hope your dreams come true. 
I hope the music still guides you. 
I  hope you miss me, at least a little. 

Poem 3:

  1. Trying to pick a favorite but having a very hard time. The last one sure did make me laugh, though.

  2. Wow, such different poems. Love how you created three around one theme. I agree with Karen about the last one, too cute. I think I like the first the best. Totally makes me think of summer. Great job ! :)

  3. Well now...#2!
    But I laughed at 3! That's my favorite :)

  4. The first said 'Summer' to me. The second was so touching. And the third? Well, I needed the laugh! You are so talented! Well done!

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!

Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Boredom, Boredom Go AWAY! #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to July's Blog with Friends Round-up!! Each month, a group of bloggers join Karen from Baking in a Tornado, and pick a theme for the month. Then each blogger creates a post, based on that theme. Posts can include anything the blogger wants. You may find poetry, recipes, short stories, DIY projects, crafts, informative posts, and anything else a blogger may choose. It is just a fun way, for us to all give our own take on a given theme.

This month's theme is Anti-Boredom Month. Did you know that July is National Anti-Boredom Month? I did not know this, until we were researching themes for our BWF posts. I think it is an excellent idea for Summer. I know when I was growing up, the most boredom I encountered, was usually in the Summer. The rest of the year, I would be so busy with school and activities, I did not have time to be bored. Then Summer would hit, and after the excitement wore off, the boredom would come visit regularly. 

I decided to compile a lists of activities…
