EYM - A Song For A Lifetime

Express Yourself is a weekly meme. It's goal is to help our fellow bloggers get to know one another better, to help motivate one another, laugh (or cry) together, in other words – stalk.



Sept. 26-30: You have to listen to ONE song for the rest of your life, what would it be?

This one is so hard cause my music changes with my moods and I can be "moody" when it comes to my music.

But I think I would either choose:

Sail - AWOLNATION
or
If I Had A Heart - Fever Ray


Hope everyone is having a great Autumn so far and is as excited as I am about October!!

Sept. 19-23: You're stuck in an elevator with 1 friend, 2 celebrities, 3 items, and NO way out, however, help is on the way. List those 6 items/people to pass the time with.

1 Friend: Jackie
2 Celebrities: Leonardo DiCaprio & Angelina Jolie
3 Items: Cell (to read/play games), Bottled Water, Trail mix (I get snacky)

EYM - To Lose, Or Not To Lose, A Sense

Express Yourself is a weekly meme. It's goal is to help our fellow bloggers get to know one another better, to help motivate one another, laugh (or cry) together, in other words – stalk.
 
 
 
Sept. 12-16: IF you had to lose one of your senses, which one would it be and why?

 
I would have to say Taste?

I was going to go with Hearing but then I would miss out on hearing my children's voices, or hear someone sneaking up on me.

So I'm going with Taste. I'm hoping with the loss of my taste buds, I would grow to hate food and maybe even lose a couple of lbs. Haha

 

Next week: You're stuck in an elevator with 1 friend, 2 celebrities, 3 items, and NO way out, however, help is on the way. List those 6 items/people to pass the time with.

WE ARE BAAAAACK!!

Sorry, we needed a break this summer. The hot summer months brought more with it than normal this year.

Jackie and I each had a son who graduated high school, which means we each had parties to prep for. And not did we have our own sons graduating, but we also had several other family and friends kids graduating. Plus vacations, lake parties, etc.

With that being said, we are super happy to be back and get at it!


Sept. 5-9: What/Who is your spirit cartoon character(s)?

Mabel - Gravity Falls
Buttercup - Powerpuff Girls
Peppermint Patty - Peanuts



Next week:
IF you had to lose one of your senses, which one would it be and why?


Hope everyone had a relaxing Labor Day!!
