Five Photo & Story Challenge:  Raaaawwwwrrrrr! – Photo & Story #5

My buddy, Rob of The V-Pub invited me to a 5 day challenge to join the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”. 

I’m on the final day of the challenge and enjoyed it a great deal!  I love the idea behind finding random photos and assigning it a story or anything that comes to mind.  I appreciate Rob’s invitation as well as my great blogger buddies that have participated! 

This is one of my favorite pictures of all time.  She-ra has quite a personality and it was evident even as a toddler! That gummy grin always got me. 🙂  But her looking like she was making her war call on Thanksgiving Day is hysterical to me!  I feel like I should make a meme out of it at some point! 

Feel free to let me know what you’d put on it if you were to make a meme!

Happy Friday, y’all!

Today I nominate the incredibly talented, self taught lady of the kitchen, Gen, of Eat, Play, Clove.  Her recipes and humor are equally fabulous!  Check her out!

Colors.  Blue sky.  Peace. Tranquility. Clouds. Sparkling water.  Brightness.  

A wonderful reminder as to why I live in South Florida.  

Get lost in the ocean with me!

I now nominate my newly minted blonde girlfriend of “Becoming Me.” She is constantly impressing me with her strength during her separation and dedication to her children. Check her out!

Five Photos & Stories Challenge: Gyno Visit – Photo/Story #3

My buddy, Rob of The V-Pub invited me to a 5 day challenge to join the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.

Yesterday my post was a bit depressing so today I will be silly.
 
I had to go to the gynecologist yesterday for my annual Pap smear/visit.  In which they shared that because I am now 35, I am recommended to get a mammogram. 

Don’t get me wrong, I understand the importance but WHO THE HELL WANTS TO GET THEIR BREASTS PRESSED LIKE A PANINI?! is what my brain screamed at me.  I smiled and took the prescription and cursed my paper outfit and the bright fluorescent lights above.

I love my doctor.  Like, love love love him.  But I’ll be damned if going to the Gyno is not one of the most awkward and uncomfortable experiences ever.

Enjoy my toes that desperately need a pedicure and the rest of the torture tools you see carefully placed around the room taunting me. 

And, yes, because it’s Miami, the doctor has an advertisement in the corner for Colombian style girdles that keep you sucked and tucked without surgery… Sigh.  

Go get your check ups, ladies!

Today I nominate a beautiful human being that is humble, strong and incredibly talented. Go see Anne of The Main Focus. Check her stories and poetry out!

My father passed away in 2007.  After he was cremated, my uncles, siblings and I all scattered his ashes in the bay where it was done for his parents when they died.  As kids they would all hang out and go fishing in this area.  We tossed white roses in the water and this particular lonely one stood out.

I certainly don’t mean to be a Debbie Downer with this story but this photo feels like it appropriately captured the feeling of the moment.  My father and I were very close and the loss was a big one for our family.  I know he’s resting in peace and protecting us from above. 🙂

Here’s where I now nominate someone to do it.  I nominate the super hilarious and wise Gratuitous Rex!  No offense taken if you don’t do it, buddy, but would love to hear what you got!
