You are thinking what I'm thinking, right? Gorgeous bedrooms! The kind that make you want to curl up and stay in bed all day and never leave! The kind with beautiful bedding, wonderful architectural features, and a warm, cozy, comfy feeling! That's what you were thinking, right?
I was just looking at my friend's face book page and saw this, I loved it so much I had to post it! Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars is one of my favorite songs. I was turned on to it by my then 2 year old grand daughter, Kailyn, who is now a big girl of 3. It and All about That Bass by Megan Trainor which by the way, is one of the cutest videos ever, are her favorites! We have on demand on our TV and can watch popular music videos when ever we want. When the songs were over, she would demand, again and again and.......! She'd dance fast and furious till she would
fall to the floor in a dizzy heap! Watching her trying to shake her
booty and do the splits like they do in Megan's video, it's a hoot!
My "sassy" little dancer!
I thought I hadn't seen anything better then her dancing, but this video comes pretty close! Someone had the genius idea of mixing some of the greatest dancers from Hollywood's golden age to the song, Uptown Funk. If you're a tad bit older like me, I'm sure you'll recognize a lot of them. For those of you "young things" out there who may not have had the privilege of seeing them in some of these fabulous movies, here are some of their names :
Fed Astaire and Ginger Rogers
Gene Kelly and the " mouse"
Abbot and Costello
Just click on the links and they will take you to the videos,
make sure you have your volume turned on!
Fred and Ginger
I have loved Fred for as long as I can remember, think he's the greatest dancer
of all times and watch his movies every chance I get!
I'm also posting links to the original Uptown Funk and All About That Bass
because they are Kailyn's and my favorites!
(she also loves to dance to Taylor Swift's Shake It Up video but
that's another story)!
The Holidays are over, hope you all had a wonderful time! Mine was not as good as it could be, I got back from CA two weeks before Christmas on Saturday, and by Monday I was sicker then a dog! Someone on that plane wa a BAD germ! Been that way for the last 4 weeks but am finally feeling a lot better! Enough of that, on to other things! Since I've been feeling better, I've managed to get the Christmas stuff put away and caught up on all my chores. Now, I'm ready to relax a bit and enjoy! I haven't blogged over the Holidays, do to the above and trying to get Christmas together so I'm reposting a post I did way back when I first started blogging.
This is my idea o f the "Perfect Day".
I'm going to get up in the morning and drink this
(not all of them, silly)!
Lay on this
Cover up with this
In front of this
(don't think about the calories)!
After all that, I'll be ready for this
How about you, is this anywhere close to your perfect day?
I haven't done any Christmas posts because I've been in California since the 23rd of November to spend Thanksgiving and help my sister during her 2nd knee replacement surgery which she had on December 2nd. She had the other knee done this time last year, I was out here then too. What that means for me is that I have a lot of Christmas decorating and shopping to do when I get home! I do have my tree up but not decorated and my garland is also up. That's all I was able to get done before I left. I'm flying home on Saturday, the 12th. Now, I'm going to tell you about my latest Christmas obsession! One of my BFs, Marsha, friends since the 7th grade, showed me the dancing elves video she made using her family members. I had seen one a few years ago but had forgotten all about them. I loved it so much, I couldn't make just one, I had to make 3! It seems I can never stop at just one of anything, do I need therapy? When Marsha was visiting, we had that very discussion about our collecting habits. Could I have just 1 puppy planter, no.....and I'm not telling how many I have! Same with my ironstone collection etc. What does that mean.....well, I think I'm normal.... I'll leave that for you to decide!
To get you started, here's a photo of my favorite vintage elves that are from our Christmas's starting back in the 60's
In January, if you don't buy them, they disappear. My plan was to
buy them but I forgot and now they've gone! I'm very sad, but then again,
there's always next year!
Each video is pretty short, so it won't take that long to
watch all three. The videos according to the web site
will stay up till January 1st unless you purchase them
for $1.99 each.
(Be sure to turn up your volume a little for the music and click on the link)
This is the last one, promise!
It's for all you cat lover's out there.
It also has special meaning for me, Kate and her family have moved into their new home
where she is now able to have pets and is taking her cat Jenny to live with them!
Once I get home, I may not be able to post again till after Christmas
depending on how much time it takes me to get ready for the big day.
I'm really going to try and not to get stressed, just get done what I want,
not worry about the rest and just enjoy the holiday with these 2 cuties!
Kailyn, 3 and Sarah who turned 1 on December 8th!
Is time going flying by or is it just me?
