TAG

The Holiday Drinks Book Tag

Good Morning All,

Today we are doing The Holiday Drinks Book Tag.  I was tagged by the wonderful Consu @ The Paper Eyed Girl. If you have not checked her out I really urge you to do so.

1. Hot Chocolate: Marshmallows and chocolate and whipped cream, oh my! Recommend a book that’s sweet through and through.

A Holiday by Gaslight

I really loved this book.

2. Peppermint Mocha: The flavor of peppermint is strong and distinct. Recommend a book with a lot of strong emotions.

Eye of the World

3. Apple Cider: It’s so good it can’t be good for you, but it’s from apples—that means it’s healthy, right? Recommend a book full of characters with questionable morals.

And I Darken

4. Eggnog: It’s creamy and smooth, with a little spice, and some people even add alcohol to it. Recommend a book that’s mostly fun, with just a hint of danger.

The strange case of the Alchemists daughter

5. Gingerbread Latte: A drink with a veritable explosion of spices. Recommend a book with a lot of action.

The Final Empire UK

So I may have stretched a little on some of these. But I am sticking to them!

3 Day Lyrical Challenge Christmas Edition – Day 3

I was tagged by the amazing Brittney @ Perfectly Tolerable to do the 3 Day Lyrical Challenge. Since I have done this before I am going to put a Christmas twist on this one and find Christmas songs.  This was more of a challenge than you would think because I usually only listen to instrumental Christmas music.

I wanted to end this on a fun note. My dad loved Jeff Foxworthy when I was growing up so this was something that I have heard over and over again.

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  • Nominate three other bloggers each day.

Song: Redneck 12 Days Of Christmas -Jeff Foxworthy

And some parts to a Mustang GT

Man these ain’t normal Christmas Presents

Nah there redneck gifts

Redneck gifts?

Yeah you know like if you buy your wife
Earring that double as fishing hooks or if you can burp the entire chorus of Jingle Bells
Perhaps you think the Nutcracker is something you did off the high dive
Or if you’ve ever misspelled something in Christmas lights, or if you leave cold beer
And pickled eggs for Santa Claus

Song: Carol of the Bells – Celtic Woman

Hark how the bells,
Sweet silver bells,
All seem to say,
Throw cares away

Christmas is here,
Bringing good cheer,
To young and old,
Meek and the bold,

Oh how they pound,
Raising the sound,
O’er hill and dale,
Telling their tale,

Gaily they ring
While people sing
Songs of good cheer,
Christmas is here,

Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas,
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas,
On on they send,
On without end,
Their joyful tone to every home
Dong Ding dong ding, dong Bong

I am going to Tag anyone that wants to do this and put a holiday twist to it.

3 Day Lyrical Challenge Christmas Edition – Day 1

I was tagged by the amazing Brittney @ Perfectly Tolerable to do the 3 Day Lyrical Challenge. Since I have done this before I am going to put a Christmas twist on this one and find Christmas songs.  This was more of a challenge than you would think because I usually only listen to instrumental Christmas music.

Song: Hallelujah – Pentatonix

I’d heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well, it goes like this
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to the kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips, she drew the Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well baby, I’ve been here before
I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew ya
And I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
And it’s not a cry that you hear at night
It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I am going to Tag anyone that wants to do this and put a holiday twist to it.
