Music Monday – 5/21/18

Rules from Lauren:
Every Monday share one or two of songs you’ve been enjoying lately.  It doesn’t have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites – just something you’d like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

If you would like to participate in Music Monday, please join the link up by sharing your post’s url over at this week’s post on Always Me.

I found this post over on Kristi’s blog and thought it would be fun to participate. Check her out!

This week, I’m featuring a song I think everyone can relate to – My Old Man by Zac Brown Band.

This song is about a father and son, but I feel it can certainly translate to girls as well. Everyone wants their dad’s approval and love. I dare you not to tear up during this song.

Now I’m a giant
Got a son of my own
He’s always trying
To go everywhere I go
Do the best I can to raise him up the right way
Hoping that he someday wants to be
Like his old man

I hope you like this song as much as I do. My 19-year old son actually introduced me to it and I honestly tear up every time I hear it.

Happy Monday!

Need your input – to Facebook or not to Facebook (for my blog page)

I have social media accounts for my blog on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. The one I’m the least active on is Facebook.

So my question is this – do you use Facebook to promote your blog? If so, how do you go about doing so and is it worth it? I definitely feel that I have found more book bloggers on Twitter, but I did get a nice comment from an author whose book I read on Facebook.

Anyway, I would love your thoughts.

Have a wonderful weekend.

This week, I’m featuring a song I love – American Saturday Night by Brad Paisley.

This is such a fun song – it’s about Saturday night! What’s better than Saturday night? Below is my favorite verse from the song:

You know everywhere has somethin’ they’re known for
Although usually it washes up on our shores
Little Italy, Chinatown, sittin’ there side by side
Live from New York, It’s Saturday Night!

I’m attaching the YouTube video below so you can check out this fun, catchy tune. Happy Monday!

Happy Monday!

TV Show Tag

THE TV SHOWS TAG!

I saw this on another blog (sorry, I don’t remember which one) and since I’m obsessed with TV, I figured I would do it!

First TV show you ever watched.

Image result for sesame street gif

 

I’m 46 and honestly have no clue, so I’m guessing Sesame Street.

All time favorite TV show.

Image result for the office gif

If you have read my blog, you know The Office is my all time favorite show. I just love it.

Your character crush

.Image result for jim halpert gif

Image result for jim halpert gif

Jim Halpert from the Office. I love Jim. I’m a bit of a prankster myself so I can relate to him.

Favorite OTP.

Image result for jim and pam gif

So yes, another office pairing. My favorite trope is friends to lovers, and watching Jim and Pam go from ftl was beautiful, because they were always meant to be together.

Most disappointing ending or cancellation.

Image result for how i met your mother gif

The worst ending to a series EVER was How I Met Your Mother. I am still angry about how it ended and I went on a huge rant and complained online everywhere and anywhere. The ending invalidated the entire show and I refuse to even watch it in reruns.  The gif above shows how I felt after the finale.

 

A show you’d like to be on.

Image result for modern family gif

Modern Family. It’s a show about a close family that is incredibly funny.

A character you’d love to take out on a date.

Image result for nick miller gif

Nick Miller from New Girl. I think I would laugh a lot and we’re both from Chicago.

A popular TV show you can’t stand.

Image result for family guy gif

Family Guy. I’m sorry, I really don’t get the big deal with this show, but my kids love it. there’s your answer.

A scene that made you cry like a baby.

Image result for randall ducks this is us gif

 

The episode where William dies in Season 1 of This is Us. I cried the whole episode, but the scene with the ducks, forget it.

A character with a killer wardrobe.

Image result for alexis rose gif

 

Alexis Rose from Schitt’s Creek. The whole Rose family are really great dressers!

. . .

And that’s the end of the tag! Hope everyone enjoyed it, I thought it was really fun and if you liked it, then I am officially tagging you.

If you’re binge watching something right now, I’d love to hear it. I’m looking for something new to watch.

Happy weekend.

Pet Tag – Wynnie

I found this tag on Mischenko’s page at ReadRantRock&Roll and thought it would be fun to do. Check out her page and learn about her dog Cynder.

I have two dogs, but I’m going to focus on my older dog.

1. What is your pets name?

Her name is Wynnie.

Image may contain: dog and outdoor

2. What kind of pet is it and what breed?

She’s a border collie / sheltie mix. Above, she is with our now deceased Golden named Taffy.

3. How long have you had your pet friend?

We adopted Wynnie on January 27, 2007. It was after my niece’s 5th birthday party, which makes it easy to remember. Below, she’s with our other adopted dog, Abby.

Image may contain: dog and outdoor

4. How did you get your pet?

Friends of my parents were selling their house and moving into a condo in the city. They couldn’t take their dogs and we agreed to come look at their other dog, who was older. When we walked into their house, their other dog randomly bit my son (who was 2 at the time) and peed on my leg. While this was happening, my husband was bonding with Wynnie and we left with her:)

5. How old is your pet?

We don’t really know, but we’ve had her 11 years, previous owners had her 1 1/2 years so I’d say close to 14.

No automatic alt text available.

6. What are some quirky things about your pets personality?

Wynnie is insanely smart. I call her Wynnie the Wandering dog because if her battery dies on her invisible fence collar, she is gone! She loves going on adventures around the neighborhood, but she always comes back (and she’s chipped if she doesn’t).

She’ll bark to distract Abby, our other dog, so she can get all the attention.

She loves to snuggle but can’t sit still.

She’s become pretty anti-social in her old age.

Wynnie is incredibly quiet in the car. We have actually forgotten her a few times (not for long, don’t worry), but she’s always very loving when we do! My son adores her and I love watching their interactions.

She also loves to sit in the front yard and “guard” the driveway. She knows my car from the corner, which I love, and she gets excited when I’m driving down the street.

No automatic alt text available.

7. What does your relationship with your pet mean to you?

Wynnie is just the sweetest dog. She will look you in the eye all the time, which is a sign of love. She can tell when you’re upset and will give you love. She’s the greatest.

8. What are some of your favorite past times with your pet?

She doesn’t like to play catch or anything, so my favorite times are when I’m laying on the couch for a nap and she comes and lays on me. She is the only one of my dogs to ever do it and I LOVE it. Whenever I lay down on the couch, I call for her.

No automatic alt text available.

 

9. What are nicknames that you call your pet?

I call her Wynnie Binny and Winniford. Wynnie girl is another one. We’re kind of lame that way. Here she’s with my son (around 5 years ago). My son adores animals, especially Wynnie.
