When life's kicking your butt, how about a theme song? Sunshine and Reese's Pieces

Two huge things happened this summer. Okay, just one, I tried Reese's Pieces for the first time. Oh my goodness, they rock! I love them. I wish I could go back in time and watch E.T. for the first time and at least appreciate the Reese's aspect of the movie instead of want to beat the movie into the ground for making me cry my eyes out in front of everyone. It has been a kid/pool/sunshine/travel summer. In other words, busy as heck. Through it, one song popped into my head and out my mouth. Just so you know, I have terrible music memory so I only sing small bits. That means my family has had to hear "I've got sunshine on a cloudy day..." over and over again with flair but with not much else. I hope you all had a wonderful summer. I'm not quite ready for the school year to start, but I'll just sing my way there. Any Reese's Pieces lovers out there? And how much of a song do you sing when it won't stop running through your head?

Have a bad ass September!

My Girl by The Temptations

p.s. I have to give credit to my youngest for sharing his candy with me and broadening my horizons. That was real sweet of him. Ha! Sweet.

  1. I.Just...I can't...I can't believe you'd never had Reese's Pieces before this summer. OMG! Your candy education was lacking in a serious way! *haha* I'm glad you enjoyed them though. ;) I think my kids told me that they wanted to use M&M's in ET but weren't allowed to or were asked to pay too much money or they made Reese's Pieces famous instead.
    I love My Girl. I do! But you didn't sing any snippets of it to me. ;) Honestly, it's been a Hamilton summer for me. Yep. My kids are obsessed with the musical and we listen to it OFTEN. I wake up with Hamilton music in my head and go around singing it all day. So there. That's my musical summer. And I don't think I sang any to you either.
    I'm so very happy that part of your travel summer included a visit to me. That rocked! And I can't wait for another visit...even though I know I have to.
    Happy September to you, chickie!! <3 <3 <3
