To Find Ms. Kind

It started out a day just like any other day
Blue skies, pleasant temperatures, typical L.A.
But this Friday was special as I was psyched to be
Meeting soon at Starbucks, a group of bloggers 3.

For a wholesome day of fun, coffee, gossip, laughter
With Erika Kind, Corinneonline, Carolina at Yesterday After
All the women were so sweet starting off you see
But I don’t remember much after sipping my coffee…

And the next thing you know, well, the scene was quite outrageous
My head was pounding as I woke in a hotel in Vegas
Corinne was sprawled out on the couch and starting to come round
Carolina on the floor, Ms. Kind was nowhere found

Strange clothing strewn across the floor, emptied bottles of booze
A gap where I once had a tooth, Corinne had new tattoos
And in the other rooms we found a tiger and a baby
Plus little Wayne, Wayne Newton and of course, Wayne Brady

But as for Erika,we’d no idea what we should do
‘Til looking out the window, we came cross our fist clue
For what did we see flying high as we were sitting there
Hanging from a monument, Erika’s underwear

And then we all did realize it was our mission then to find
Erika in time to get her back to Lichtenstein
And we would do all that we thought we could do in our power
To get her on that flight which was to leave in just 10 hours

Our mission was before us, and it was do or die
We pondered perhaps she was kidnapped by some Asian guy
But despite our best efforts there was no way to retrieve her
So we asked Mike Tyson but he hadn’t seen her either

Time was getting closer and still we had no luck
We’d have to call her family and say disaster struck
And just as we were bout to put the phone up to our ears
We heard Erika’s voice she said “Hello ladies I’m here”

We looked in disbelief sure her image holographic
But she said “It’s really me, I just got caught in L.A. traffic!”
And we said “Oh gosh you drove here? well you really are insane
At 6PM on Friday you should have just got on a plane!”

And so it seemed that Erika would safely make it home
And the rest revealed itself inside Corinne’s iPhone
With pictures so embarrassing we all squirmed in our seat
And with no time to spare we all just quickly hit delete

And no one will find out what went on, that we all did swear
Or what the heck was up with Erika’s flying underwear
And the only picture that we all agreed to show
Is the one that I am posting right here down below

Just four normal bloggers who you see are looking awfully
Happy when they thought that they should all meet one day for coffee

Blogger Girls

Now I hope that you all still laughing and had fun reading and travelling through Marissa creativity!
So if you want to have more fun and great reading please go to visit her Blog!

 

Have a great week!

A Two Weeks Review Of Gratitude And Blessings

Read about our beautiful Meeting in California and the personal experience of Erika 2 weeks in USA… ❤

Share Your Light

I heard sceptic voices regarding meeting bloggers in person because of a possible disappointment. My own experience was nothing like that at all. I did not have any expectations about the wonderful people I was going to meet. They already captured my heart for months and I dare to say that we did know each other by heart. That is why it was not necessary that any ice needed to be broken. There simply was no ice. We all embraced each other with arms wide open! We laughed and joked about all the things we were posting about. It truly were meetings between old friends! I am already thinking about my next trip. I will make it an effort that at least once in my life I want to embrace the people I call my friends, brothers, and sisters!

While sipping a delicious Peppermint Mocha one of my favorite, we enjoyed our great time together talking a lot, and laughing a lot like friends that know each other from years and years, it was amazing how we all felt the same beautiful way!
Erika is a wonderful soul and I am so happy that I had the opportunity to meet her in person since she live in Europe!

I got a Blog Review from Opinionated Man! :-)

Weekly Blog Reviews #3

YesterdayAfterhttps://yesterdayafter.com/

Generally women can be fire breathing dragons, but this woman has always been kind and sweet to me. I have really enjoyed her uplifting comments over the course of our WordPress bloggership. I am making up words. She is a craft blogger and shares jewelry that she sells on her site as well as artwork that she creates. She is doing it all and is always a responsive commenter so give her website a visit!

OM – Weekly Blog Reviews #3

Wow! Jason “OM” has been very kind to me and my Blog!
I am so grateful for the time he took on doing this review. I truly appreciate his encouraging words since he is someone that speak truly what he feel and very well-known here on WP Community and Blogosphere having an audience of 55.539 followers. He is very generous with his space and kind with new Bloggers. I truly like his Blog and what he is doing. My weekly “Meet and Greet” was inspired by his Meet and Greet Sessions. At the beginning of my Blog journeys, I left my link there, and that’s when I meet many of my dearest friends here. During the time that OM was not blogging I felt that something in the community was missed and I started my weekly Friday event is almost 30 weeks now, it became successful, something to look forward every week, also because I like to Feature on Saturday and support Bloggers that I believe in.

Now if you haven’t give a visit to Mr. OM

See you all tomorrow with a new FEATURED Blog of the week!
