Friend Makin' Monday - Getting Lyrical

Happy Monday!  I can't believe the dance recital is over, so the dance season is slowing down a bit (we still have Nationals next month).  The recital was excellent!  Of course I am biased, but Miss Angela was spectacular in all her dances - it can't be easy doing 10 dances and multiple costume quick changes. 

Randy has swag!

I know I'm not the only one who was ticked that they started the finale dance too quick and all the older girls who were in the last dance missed about half of it.  They didn't know it was even starting! I felt sorry for one little girl who was missing her partner - it was just the 2 of them doing a part and she was out there by herself!  Luckily she is experienced doing solos, so after a quick look on each side of the stage - she went on with that section of the dance.  It looks really good for the highest level of comp girls to come running out at random during a dance!

There was an "after party" at the studio when the recital was over - they supplied pizza & snacks and it was BYOB!  I learned that Bud Light's Straw-Beer-Ritas have twice the alcohol content of regular beer - so I downed the equivalent to 4 beers in about an hour.  Needless to say - Randy drove home.  It was amazing to me that even after the craziness of the recital, those kids grabbed the CD and went into one of the studios and proceeded to dance to each other's songs!  Angel finally wandered up close to midnight and said she was ready to go home. 

It was also pretty interesting the my Ex drove in (for the 3rd year in a row) from Nebraska to see the recital and this year brought his girlfriend with him!  It was actually quite painless, we all went out to lunch Saturday and they came over to our house and visited for a couple hours afterward.  She was pretty nice.  

This week’s FMM has a slight twist to it, thanks to Tyra at Random Acts Of Snark for this idea.

If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to read and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

So only 6 questions this week, each of them you need to answer using lyrics from a song, feel free to post the you tube link to the song also.

1. What’s your life goal?  - Tim McGraw's  Live Like You Were Dying.
"And I loved deeper,
And I spoke sweeter,
And I gave forgiveness I've been denying,
And he said someday I hope you get the chance,
To live like you were dyin'.
He said I was finally the husband,
That most the time I wasn't.
And I became a friend a friend would like to have."

2. What’s your favorite food?  Jimmy Buffet's Cheeseburger in Paradise.

3. What do you like to do on weekends?  Def Leppard's Photograph.  I love going out taking pictures!

4. What do you want to do today?  Motley Crue's Home Sweet Home.  I didn't sleep well last night and really didn't want to get up for work!

5. What would you say to the man/woman of your dreams?  Gary Allan's The One.  This was our first dance and it has a lot of meaning to us. 

Second choice is a bit more risque...  Poison's I Want Action. 

6. What’s your favorite dessert?  Don McLean's American Pie - since I couldn't find any songs about cheesecake!!

Have a great week!


  1. Love your choices, and apart from American Pie, the other songs were all songs I had never heard of :)

    1. The Def Leppard (my favorite band since high school), Poison & Motley Crue songs are all from the 80s. Then Tim McGraw & Gary Allan are somewhat more recent country songs. We have a restaurant near my house called Cheeseburger in Paradise that is owned by Jimmy Buffett and they play that song outside of it!!


Leave a note - they make me feel loved!
