#MirthMusicMon – I Recognize that look!

28 Nov

Monday snuck up on us again.

Someone should start a petition or something. πŸ˜‰

For this Mirth and Music Monday I did a little digging and found a cute scene fragment from one of The Thin Man movies.

Hehe, I earn that look from my husband at least once a week. πŸ˜€

For a bit of fun:

#MirthMusicMon – Your Post Baby Groove

18 Apr

For this Mirth and Music Monday I found something that struck a chord and gave me a chuckle.

How much of this baby-tastic house do you recognize (or remember being) in your own house? lol

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53Dp6EBQ-pA

It’s a difficult thing at times to find your inner sexiness after you’ve been mauled by a baby for a year. But, find it we should. You don’t always have to flaunt it, but you need to know it’s still there.

Here’s to our post baby bodies. πŸ˜€

And the hope that one of these days I’ll work up the guts to leave my toddling nursling at someone’s house and have dinner out with just my husband.

We’ll see how soon that actually happens. She’s showing symptoms of another cold. (groan)

.

And just for good measure, here’s a father showing his kid he’s still got it:

#MirthMusicMon – Geeking Out Over Nerds

7 Aug

It is Mirth and Music Monday and I have a confession to make.

I am a fan girl.

Star Trek

Star Wars (Original 3, only, thank you very much!)

Dr. Who

Iron Man

X-Men

Thus:

.

Yes, I am a part of most of these fandoms. (I royally stink at most games, though. 😦  )

Not that I actually have the time (or $) to stay up to date on episodes or go see all the movies. But I love the characters and worlds; the stories.

One of these days I may even work up the nerve to try fish fingers and custard. ( πŸ˜€ Hi, Emily!)

#MirthMusicMon – Dancing Strawhats

25 May

Today’s Mirth and Music Monday has music, dancing, and they make both my daughter and me laugh every time.

Let’s see what you think.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZiUYWJKCanQ

I’m not sure why it makes me laugh, but it does. Slapstick normally turns me off. Perhaps it’s the fact that you can tell they’re too far apart for anyone to really have been smacked? Dunno.

This one is by the same crew, but it has some…bleeps in place of a few words.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KUnXpwmrqQ

This group certainly has some moves. I love it. πŸ™‚

.

That’s it for me this week, folks.

Have a Great week!Β  πŸ˜€

#MirthMusicMon – Funny Mom Parodies

27 Jul

This has been an interesting day.

We woke up to a power blip that somehow knocked out internet out. We managed to get it fixed just in time for me to start work on Mirth and Music Monday. Whew!

Also, this has not been a good day, uh, morning sickness wise. On the up side, I don’t think my abs have ever been this solid. πŸ™‚

Enough about me, it’s time for the fun stuff.

.

This first one is a mom parody of Let It Go (like you aren’t all more than a little tired of that tune), but it’s a good one. Honest.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqqlylre2BU

.

The next one is a mom parody of Footloose (the song, not the entire movie).

MMM… Shirley Temple

14 Apr

This has been an interesting week of home improvement, planting part of the garden and sticking to my diet like a good girl (it’s not usually difficult, but this past week had some serious temptations).

Let’s celebrate the fact that we survived another whirlwind week, and weekend, with some fun.

These are both clips from the movie Captain January. The first movie I can remember crying to. It’s alright, though. It has singing, dancing, humor and, most importantly, a happy ending, like all feel-good movies should.Β  πŸ™‚

If you liked this sample of Mirth and Music Monday go ahead and check out ReGi McClain’s blog. She’s the creator of this meme and host of the linky where you can find out who else is playing along this week.

MMM… Car Songs!

16 Feb

Usually I have to spend hours on YouTube trying to find something for Mirth and Music Monday. This week, however, I had two songs pop into my head.

They even match!Β  πŸ˜€Β 

(I’ve had a third song actually playing around and around in my head, but since it’s called ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry’ I think I’ll give that one a pass. lolΒ Β  It’s a lovely, lazy waltz, though, and has been really making me want to go dancing again. Which is odd, since my feet have just stopped complaining about 3 hours of dancing on Valentines night.) (Yes, my husband is awesome.Β  πŸ™‚Β  )

On with the fun!

.

.

.

That’s it for me today. If you would like more Mirth and Music Monday posts head on over to ReGi McClain’s post. She is the creator of this lovely meme and hosts the linky where you can find all the links to other Mirth and Music Monday posts.

If you would like to join us, all you would need to do is put together a post that has both music and humor, then go to ReGi’s post and put your link on the list in the linky. (It’s so easy even I can figure it out.Β  πŸ˜‰Β  )

There is one difference for this week and the next. ReGi is on an actual vacation for the next week or so. Therefor if you have any questions about linking up, or need a further definition on what this Mirth and Music Monday thing is, I’m the one to ask. Cause, you know, she left me in charge for two Mondays.

I know. Scary.

Happy Monday!Β  πŸ˜€

Two Nights Of Dancing? Yes, Please!

28 Sep

Tonight was a lot of fun. I went to the Senior Center dance and danced my feet off.

Poor Lonnie was stuck at home dealing with some plumbing issues. They’re not totally resolved yet, but that’s because there aren’t any 24 hour plumbing outfits around here. Suffice it to say, we have running water again, but a few things didn’t handle the no-water-then-actual-water-pressure situation very well. We’re not reaching for water wings and swim fins, but there was a leak.

(I’m just glad I married someone who can deal with this sort of stuff, because I have no clue.)

So, the dance drew a lot of new people from around the area. Unfortunately there were more women than men.Β  That meant that every man there was kept dancing just about the entire time. The husbands were doing a wonderful job of making sure that no single lady sat for too long, and the wives did a lovely job of making sure the other ladies knew they were comfortable with it.

We had 3 fiddle players taking turns and duets through the evening, and even a harmonica player for one song. The regular band was in fine form, and absorbed the guest musicians with wonderful grace and harmony.

The only complaint I had about the evening was that I really should start bringing some food with protein in it for the intermission meal. I am thinking that everyone got together and made Friday night their cheat day, because we have cookies, cakes and gelatin desserts coming out our ears. Everyone else really enjoys the yummy sugar, but I really need to watch it with that kind of stuff, especially when I’m doing a physical activity. Believe it or not, waltzing and the Texas two-step are a lot of exercise. Especially when you’re only getting to sit down for one dance in four.

I need the exercise, so I’m not going to complain.Β  πŸ™‚

.

Tomorrow night (by the time you’re reading this it will be tonight) I am joining in the festivities of a bachelorette party.

We’re going to meet up at a friend’s house, play a couple games, goof around, then head off to dinner. After dinner we’re going to go back to her house, change into our late night clothes, and go clubbing. What I really like about the club they’ve chosen is that they have great staff. Their security is on top of everything, they card pretty much everyone (does wonders for the ego πŸ˜‰ ), and the bathrooms are uber clean.

We’re not going out really to drink, though. Mostly for dancing. I’m not going to be drinking at all. The last thing I need is to have a blood-sugar crisis when we’re all supposed to be having blast.

It should be a lot of fun.Β  πŸ˜€

.

Yeah, so on another note. I wrote a sad, sappy, happy ending lyrics for a song this afternoon. I’m thinking it would work better on the Country market, but could work in the rock or techno ballad sound. One of my sisters is good at coming up with tunes. Perhaps she can give it a melody.

Writing a song was definitely not on the agenda when I sat down at my computer, but that’s what came out.

I tried to write something else afterward, but was too drained to do anything beyond simply stare blankly at an equally blank new document.

Tomorrow is already a wash for getting any writing done. I have a couple errands I’ll have to run before getting my stuff together for that night, then getting picked up mid-afternoon.

.

Dude! What am I going to wear???

.

Don’t forget, next Friday I’ll be hosting a guest blog from the lovely ReGi McClain.

(Which is just fine. It turns out I’ll be gone that weekend, so she can have the run of the place. lolΒ  πŸ˜€ )

Happy Saturday!
