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

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:…

A Yakk a Dozen #UseYourWords February 2016

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 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’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are: love bug ~ romance ~ flowers ~ hearts ~ friends ~ candy They were submitted by:

We started out as friends.
Hanging out. Listening to music.
Debating on important topics.
No candy and flowers.
No signs of romance.
Just two friends enjoying each other's company.
Then the love bug bit.
Our hearts became involved.
Love blossomed and passion ignited.
Somehow we made some wrong turns.
Ended up in the wrong place.
No longer lovers.
No longer friends.
Just a sad ending to an epic tale.
A stack of should haves and co…

Love, Lovely Love #LovePoetry February 2016.

As we have done in the past, a group of us got together to share poetry with you all. This month we decided on the theme of love! Very appropriate, since Valentine's Days is right around the corner. Valentine's Days is my favorite holiday, followed closely by St. Patrick's Day! Without further delay, here is my contribution to this month's poetry collaboration!! 

Poem 1: 
Lilies and lilacs and roses too. Only you on my mind.
Visions of our future in my dreams.
Eternity our goal.

Poem 2: 

You always told me you would love me endlessly.
Yet, your love ended.
You always told me you would be there for me.
Yet, you are long gone.
You always told me you would be mine forever.
Yet, you belong to someone else now.

Poem 3: 

I love you for the way you make me feel.
I love you for the way you kiss me deeply.
I love you for the way you give me bliss.
I love you for the poetry you share with me.
I love you for the way you test my limits.
I love you for the way you stretch my mind.
I love you for the w…

Music of my Heart #SecretSubjectSwap February 2016

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 14 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: Everyone has a favorite song.  Except...
It was submitted by:My Brain on Kids
Music is such an amazing part of my life. Genuinely a favorite thing for me. When I was younger, I often said that I could NEVER live without music. Now, it more like I could NEVER live with my child. I'd hate to live without music, but I could survive.   So, as for having a favorite song, I'd say I'm definitely an exception. Around the time I was twenty years old, I developed a Top Ten list. It has changed over the years, but for the most part, it's my go to list. I decided some time ago, when asked my favorite song, to give my number one on the list, as the answer. It has never changed. Others have, but number one hasn&#…
