Green Bay For Life... December 2014 Funny Friday

Today’s post is December’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’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 Stacy Sews and Schools (

1. Trust me, I do not need to brush my hair. With abs this great, nobody will be focusing on my hair.
2. I'll be trading in these jammies for an actual Green Bay uniform in a few years.
3. The Incredible Hulk has nothing on me. This shirt didn't stand a chance.
4. I may not have the best taste in hair styles, but my taste in football teams is impeccable. 
5. Why did you have to wake me up? I was just about to catch the winning touchdown pass!

I hop…

Shoo fly, shoo!!! December Fly on the Wall

Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. It's a monthly blogging collaboration. Today 14 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.

Weewee has entered into the copycat phase. She will copycat the things we say or do. It blows my mind, to think she will be 18 months old in a few short days. 
One night I had returned to the living room after my shower, and sat down. Chad reached over and squeezed my boob and made a honking noise. Weewee then started grabbing her own chest and honking. 
All the wrong things << What Chad is teaching Weewee.
Me (Trying desperately to open the lid on a new container of animal crackers): Arghhhhh! Chad: Seriously? You can't open them?
Me: No, I am just pretending to struggle. Chad (taking the container and opening it easily): Here you go. Me grumpily: Thanks. Chad: Obviously you loosened it. Me: Damn right I did! I totally just pretended to be a d…

Nothing is forever.... December 2014 Use Your Words

Today’s post is a writing challenge, that I participate in monthly. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a blog 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’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are: blue vase ~ washer ~ broom ~ chicken ~ butterfly ~ pumpkin They were submitted by:http://spatulasonparade.blogspot.
Thank you for these challenging, wonderful words!

As I stand here with the broom, sweeping by the washer and dryer, a chard of blue glass comes out from beneath the washer.
I am instantly brought back to that day.
The day we ate curry chicken and pumpkin pie in the kitchen.
The day you told me you loved me for the first time and gave me a bouquet of sunflowers in a blue vase.
It was a beautiful vase.

MPD1F4L December 2014 Secret Subject Swap

Welcome to December's Secret Subject Swap. The last one of 2014. That is so amazing to me. It feels like we were just posting the first one of 2014, and now we are soon to be posting the first one for 2015. It has been a great year of blog challenges. I hope you have enjoyed reading them all, as much as I have enjoyed writing them. This week, 12 brave bloggers submitted a secret subject for someone else to write about and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and publishing our posts.

My fabulous “Secret Subject” is: Your celebrity crush sent you a Christmas/Hanukkah gift. What did he/she send you? How do you react? Do you return the favor? It was submitted by: <<Thank you for submitting such a great subject!!>>

I am not one to have celebrity crushes. I haven't had a genuine crush on a celebrity in years. I find certain celebrities to be attractive. I just don't h…
