Ask Away Friday: Love and Marriage Edition

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles

Ask Away Friday: Discussing Love, Valentine's Day and Marriage

This week for Ask Away Friday, love is in the air!  Valentine's Day will be here soon and for all the lovebirds out there, it's an exciting time, at least I think so!  Also, my 8th wedding anniversary is coming up next week so for this swap, we're celebrating and discussing love, marriage and Valentine's Day.  I'm swapping with the lovely Bobbie who blogs at Living in Retrospect.  She blogs about ways to save money, blogging, DIY, creative writing and more!  She has a lot of cool things to look through on her site so be sure to head over there to check it out! She and her husband just celebrated their own wedding anniversary in December so I think love and marriage is a perfect topic for us to share this week.

Funny Kids' Quotes from 2014

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles

Kid Logic

Children have impressionable minds and how they take in information and transform it to make sense in their heads is interesting to hear.  As I continue this parenting journey with  my three and six-year-old, I am still amazed on how they interpret and analyze information.  It seems like at least a couple times a day, my children will say something that brings a smile to my face or makes me question how they came up with a certain conclusion or will have me laughing hysterically.  Kids say the darndest things, don't they?  I wish I could remember them all so that's why awhile back I wrote down several things my son said when he was younger in this previous post. 

Now, with 2014 over, I managed to remember a few things my kids said that I think are worth repeating from last year, too, along with some new funny things they've said this year.  After all, laughter is the best medicine, right?

Ask Away Friday with Stacey at This Momma's Ramblings

It's Friday and I'm happy that I'm getting back into Ask Away Friday after not swapping for awhile. What is Ask Away Friday?  It's when two bloggers swap ten questions with one another and answer the questions on their own blogs.  It's a fun way to get to know each other and connect with other bloggers.  It was started by Penny from the Real Housewife of Caroline County and Amber from Bold Fit Mom.  This week's Ask Away Friday theme is all about books, movies and TV!  I'm swapping with the awesome Stacey who blogs at This Momma's Ramblings.
