Don’t know about you, but dancing makes me happy and to find music that makes you dance without even thinking about it is THE BEST!

Justin Timberlake shows you in “Can’t Stop the Feeling”

Meghan Trainor tells you about it exactly in “Better When I’m Dancin'” 🙂

One more quote I found and just have to share:

Fun, Questions

What’s Your Creative Style?

I found a Creativity Test and this was the result after 8 questions that I could have said “none of the above” to a few, and amazingly this fits me!

Creativity is a release

For you, creativity is first and foremost a form of expression: it creates a special link between the internal and external worlds. It allows you to get a grasp of your powerful emotions, by moulding them into a physical form. In fact, the most important thing for you is to be able to release your emotions. You need to be able to touch them or look at them in concrete form, and to do that you have to find a way to make them come alive. This is how your desires and anxieties take shape. Keeping things bottled up creates a tension that can only be resolved once you have expressed how you feel. This means you have to be strong enough not to let yourself get swept away by chaotic impulses; if you turn your creative urges on everyday life — making a picnic, singing to the baby, choosing what to wear — you can express yourself while staying rooted in reality. Creativity is principally cathartic. It relieves a deep need, an almost primal, archaic impulse. For you, being creative is about having the power to give form to something you feel, to those deep personal issues that are often raw and disorganised. For these reasons you are usually attracted to art that demands physicality, that allows you to express what’s inside, and that unites spontaneity, strength, freedom, power and movement.

Challenge, Opposites Attract

Opposites attract: 4/25 by The Haunted Wordsmith

Today’s word: pretty

Antonyms: disagreeable, pleasureless, unpalatable, unpleasant, unwelcome

*********************************************************************

I really thought she was pretty when I first saw her.  Then, coming face to face with her, I found out how unpleasantly disagreeable she is and how unwelcoming to others she behaves.  I have a whole new opinion on the matter.

Fun, Short story, Tell The Story

Tell the Story

img_2612Kristian included me in the Tell the Story prompt and I haven’t had the wherewithal to sit down and respond until now.  So sorry Kristian! (*Hands over face*)

******************************************************************************

I looked around as we went down this long drive lined by trees with a questioning look on my face.

“Well you always wanted to be a princess in a renaissance castle.  So now you are.” Maggie said as we came to a stop.

I was wondering why they had me dress in this renaissance garb and head-dress.  We had reached a castle and as they guided me inside, I saw my friends were all standing around talking.  When we walked through the grand doors our presence was announced.  I could feel my cheeks flush and we continued to proceed to the long table prepared in front of us and in front of all.  They had me sit in the middle beside my best friend and our other friends sat on either side of us.  We were the royalty for the night.

We danced and had our fill of food and drink.  I was the happiest girl in the world!

I continue this Tell the Story challenge by nominating the following bloggers to post any type of response at all to the picture below:

Name Three Things

cube-1655118__480

Saw this on The Haunted Wordsmith blog that A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip posted originally.  Thought it looked fun so here goes….

Name three things –

That you cannot under any circumstances live without ?  Water, food, sleep

That you write about every week?  Life issues, poems, fun prompts

That you wouldn’t recommend doing whilst holding one foot in the air?  Walking, dancing, standing for any amount of time

That you say to people every day?  Thank you, Have a great day, May I help you?

To do with your street?  Traffic, houses, trees

That you can eat with brown sauce? If meaning brown gravy, then…mashed potatoes, biscuits, ground steak

You like about your favourite bloggers? The fun they have, the comments they make, the support I feel

That you don’t eat every week? Sweets/candy, bread, pastries/baked goods

That you wished you could eat every day? Pies, bread, steak

About your favourite pair of shoes that you like? Broke in, cute, go with everything

That annoyingly always arrive in three? Deaths, bad news, good news (like pregnancies)

About books you really don’t like?  That I don’t have enough, they are mainly ebooks now, that I don’t have enough 😉

White Elephant Party

IMG_5758

Every day The Haunted Wordsmith (Teresa) will be hosting a white elephant party. If you are unfamiliar with what a white elephant party is, it can be summed as as a party where people exchange gifts that are meant to be funny (some are serious though, its up to the gift giver).” She lists 3 fellow bloggers and the gift she gives them.  Then at the end of the day she will share the funniest gifts shared.

I am so excited to be included in today’s Party!! 🙂

So, here are my gifts I choose to give.  I do not know many as of yet, but those that have touched me by comments and sense of community, I give these to you:

To Paula Light

Halloween Favorites

IMG_5040

My Halloween Favorites:

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year.  So, I decided I would share some of my favorites things about Halloween with you and hope that you might share some too!

My Halloween favorite movies come in a variety. There are the cute fun ones like Hocus Pocus and Twitches. There are then the slightly disturbing ones like Witches of Eastwick.  Then my all time favorite one is Practical Magic.  And of course, we can’t forget It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and Harry Potter has to be in there too!  The closest to scary I like are the vampire movies like Underworld and Blade.

My favorite shows that could be considered “Halloween like” would be Charmed (LOVED this show and now they have a new one coming out!) and Good Witch (Just started watching and am hooked). Then there are the old favorites like Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel!

My favorite candy for Halloween….Oh there are so many! Caramels, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Sweet Tarts, Peanut Butter candies and Laffy Taffy 🙂

My favorite Halloween costumes, well there are so many!  Vampires, Cats, Cat Woman, Gypsy, Harley Quinn, Cheerleader, Hippie…ohhh so many fun ones!

And of course, with Halloween falling right here in the Autumn/Fall season, pumpkin spice and cinnamon is the flavor of choice for many things….coffee, candles, scents and goodies.

It’s a blast to decorate for the trick or treaters and hand out candy too!

So that’s my favorites. It you have any favorites, please share! I love reading what everyone else likes about this season and their favorites too!
