Remember That Time…you spent the night?

rememberthetime_zps58158eefSo, 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!


  1. I didn’t get a chance to write a post about it, but we were camping once on the 4th and left our camp ground to go see the fireworks. We can back to find our dog was scared of firework and had completely destroyed our tent. Vacation over. We went home. Good times.

    1. Thus proving once again that no matter how much control we think we exert over our lives, it’s actually our pets and kids who hold the reins.

      1. Indeed. Control is nothing but an illusion.

  2. I’d say we had an excellent collection of posts this time around. And, personally, I think the 4th of July should come around more often because your explosion puns are fantastic.

    1. I agree! Explosion puns forever!

      1. Wahooooo! {Imagine me with a Ted Nuggent-esque smile on my face as I say that.}

    2. You make my heart go boom boom, Ash. So kind.

  3. That was really fun! I’m excited for this next one!

    1. Me too! I hope we can convince Tim to eventually linkup with us. This prompt seems right up his alley.

      1. True! I’m sure he had some traumatizing sleepovers.

  4. Great idea, and hopefully I can get more involved in it this week. I do have a few stories that might fit this one!

    1. Yay! It was be beyond amazing if you could write a little something ;D

  5. This week, I’m in. I’ve been wanting to do a post about sleepovers… And the time is now.

    1. YAY! Sleepover bring out some crazily awesome stories, and I can’t wait to hear yours!

  6. Are we allowed to use old entries for this? My only sleepover was already written about and it involves nudity. Or do I have to sleep over someone new’s place then write about it?

    1. You certainly are allowed to use gently-used posts. Because you’re awesome.

      1. I feel like that would be cheating so I’ll do a new one and summarize the one I wrote about and put a link in there to the old post and blah blah blah it’s better than making an exception because then you’ll have to start making exceptions for other people. I had enough other sleepovers to write about anyway. I have to post it by Thursday or Friday?

    I love this idea! I will definitely contribute when my blogging schedule is a little less hectic. Can;t wait to check out this weeks posts, sleepovers were the best!


  8. I did it too! My sleepover consisted of diapers and baby bottles.

Now you can hold the magic talking stick.
