Parties. LOTS of Parties….

Monday, July 14, 2014

Happy Monday!!!  I hope you're having a great one.  It's one party after another around here.  We had one family birthday party last week, two this week, plus our nephew is getting married in New Orleans very, very soon.

I'm also participating in two rather large blog parties, Where Bloggers Create and the Mad Tea Party.

Please Join Vanessa @ a fanciful twist and Karen @ My Desert Cottage and check out all the other lovely parties!

Since I've had partying on the brain, I've been thinking about two videos that certainly embody the party spirit, although they are odd parties.  So for today's Musical Monday, please sit back and enjoy some weirdness from two Georgia bands, REM and the B-52's.

Happy Musical Monday!

B-52's Love Shack

R.E.M.'s Imitation of Life

Don't both parties look oddly fun!!!

I hope you're having fun this summer.  We are!!!  I'll be busy the rest of this week visiting all the parties, so if you didn't participate in them, I might not make it to your blog this week.

I'll be back on Friday for my Literary Friday post.

Until next time…

  1. Isn't it funny how if you have one party to go to, it seems you have a ton of parties to go to? It's like one invitation reproduces and becomes many. lol Enjoy the parties, enjoy the Summer!

  2. So glad you are having a great summer RJ. Party on girl!!!!!

  3. Finally I think our parties are over but we are still so busy. Summer is going way too fast. Enjoy the wedding and b-days.

  4. I love parties and summer is the perfect opportunity to host something outdoors. Sounds like a fun wedding ahead in New Orleans! xxleslie

  5. Parties are like funerals they come in groups.............

  6. All these parties sound like fun...I stopped linking up to them a while ago because I just couldn't keep up. I do miss them! Sounds like your summer is going great...enjoy!

  7. Oh..those songs really took me back. I feel like I'm missing the whole summer. Wish I had some parties like that to go to.

  8. I love REM. You are so funny with your songs - love your blog, RJ. Have a great week!
