Fashion Diva October 2016 #FunnyFriday

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 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.

Here is today’s picture. It was submitted by Candice of Measurements of Merriment

1. The moment when Dad fully understood why mom highlighted "Do not let her dress herself, without parental input", on the list of While Mom is Away instructions.
2. Daughter: Why are you looking at me like that? It's the shoes, isn't it? I knew I should have worn my Princess Elsa flats. Mom: Yeah, sure, it's the shoes.
3. Daughter: Mom, why doesn't this swimsuit fit me? I wanted to wear it for my fashion show, but it just isn't cooperating. Mom: …

Boo #TopTenThursday

Welcome to this week's #TopTenThursday. This is a fun writing challenge, that is hosted by Tamara of Confessions of a part-time working mom. Her, myself, and other bloggers, come together and post weekly Top Ten lists, which we create based on a chosen topic. I hope you enjoy reading my list, as much as I loved creating it.

As many of you have probably noticed, I've missed the last few Top Ten Thursday posts. I have not been feeling well. I have the corresponding lists for those weeks, and I plan on sharing them. I just need to write the posts. I'm still not feeling great, but I'm determined to share this week's list. We are sharing our top ten Loves/hates of Halloween. 
1. (love) All the costumes. Getting to see everyone dressed up. I especially love dressing Gigi up. This year, she is going to be a shark. Chad and I are going to be pirates.
2. (love) Giving out candy. I love you seeing the joy on kid's faces, when I give them candy. Sadly, in our current house, …

Stable Layne Pt 3 Oct 2016 #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:  dessert ~ weight ~ scary ~ domesticate ~ husband They were submitted by: http://www. thediaryofanalzheimerscaregive you so much for such great words!!)
If you would like to catch up on the Stable Layne tale, you can read part 1 here and part 2 here

Layne was starting to feel the burn in her calf muscles and abs. Well, she assumed it was her abs. Did she have abs? She was sure did somewhere under her tummy flab. She had never really had any problems with her weight, but she was not one to ever turn down dessert, so sh…

Falling Into You Oct 2016 #PoetryCollaboration

Every month (for a year now), some fellow bloggers and I have been writing poetry every month, based on a chosen theme. This month, we chose "Fall" as our theme! I hope you enjoy what I have created to share with y'all!! Do not forget to go check out the poetry my fellow bloggers created for you!!

Poem 1:

Falling leaves.
Apple picking.
Leaves changing color.
Laughing around the bonfire.

Poem 2:

I miss lazy nights, laying in bed, with you.
I miss staring into the sunset with you.
I miss walking through the orchard, enjoying the Fall leaves, with you.
I miss lazy mornings, reading the paper over coffee and bagels, with you.
I miss simply being with you.
I miss the days we spent falling in love.
I miss planning our future together.
I miss you reading your poetry to me.
I miss reading my rough drafts to you.
I miss so much.
Do you?

Poem 3:

I love the way your voice caresses my eardrums.
I love the way your fingers caress my palms.
I love the way your tongue dances with mine.
I cannot stop falling…

Happiness is This Oct 2016 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to this month's Secret Subject Swap. This week twelve 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: Take us on a journey to the happiest minute of your life.
It was submitted by:  (Thank you for this fabulous subject!!!! With all the craziness in the world, it was awesome to think back to my happiest minutes, even if the road to them was a bit insane!!!)
So, when I read this subject, I immediately knew what the happiest minute of my life. I really did not even have to think about it, or try to figure out which one I would pick. As I sat down to write this out, I realized I do have a second happiest minute, and it is pretty much equally as happy, and happened one a few minutes after the first I thought of. Then, I realized I really have a third one as well. All eq…
