So, with the first week of Ashley’s and my nostalgic blog linkup Remember the Time When We Did the Things behind us, I think we can safely say that it was a good idea to get y’all to write stuff for us. Even though we launched it on a day when most Americans were busier launching firecrackers and singeing their eyebrows than blogging, a few select troopers wrote some fantastic posts about their summer vacations back in the day. Per the Independence Day metaphors, y’all were da bombs bursting in air.
My cohestess Ashley of Zebra Garden wrote about the summer when her twin baby sisters almost made her family fall to their deaths in a seaside ravine. Her mom’s ninja skills saved them all, and for that I’m thankful.
Cameron (AKA Besfrinn) (AKA Krug the Thinker) shared some pretty sexy pictures of us both when we dyed our hair in high school and tried to hit on boys while conducting “independent surveys”.
Lily wrote about scaring small neighbor children and drinking all their lemonade when she was a kid. Good times, good times…..
Dawn from Tales From the Motherland shared memories from the summer when she got in good with the bad kids.
Ethel from Ethel and Everett Go RVing told us how a dead frog has a funny way of ruining your camping trip.
And last but not least, Emily at The Okayest Mom shared a story from her childhood about feeding her poor little brother milk mixed with garlic powder in a eat-off when they were kids. Sounds pretty good to me? ;D
Thanks to all these ladies for participating and kicking off Remember That Time with a bang. And thank God the Fourth of July comes only once a year, thus cutting down on my opportunities to make explosion puns.
But now. For this week…
Remember that time you had a sleepover? Maybe you had a slumber party memory that you’ve just got to get off your chest. Maybe you got invited to stay over at the weird kid’s house in grade school. Maybe you have a juicy tale about making the walk of shame in college. Maybe.
We want to hear about it! Write your post and then stop by here or Zebra Garden Thursday and Friday to link up! We’ll see you then!
