There Will Always Be Music At My Party! - 8th Annual Ultimate Blog Party

I've been to quite a few parties and there were no music! Maybe this is how Americans do it, but in my country, wherever there is a party, you'll know! Because there will be music! And with music, you stay and dance even when the food is all gone!

Welcome to the party and come on and dance with me!

Ultimate Blog Party 2014
My name is Colette. Call me Callie if you desire. I have many names :) Even "Mommy." And because I haven't gotten used to talking about myself as yet, I'll just share 7 things about me. See? quick and easy.
1. I love to dance. I dance alone. With my kids. And if my husband would allow it, I'd fall in love with him even more :)

2. I love music. I get MUSICK drunk when I begin to listen to the tunes. You can see me sharing on our music meme every Monday. Come on join us if you wish.

3. I love my children. They are indeed blessings and have shown me a glimpse of love and forgiveness. I would also love to  have 5 children.

4. I stay up too late at nights. Sometimes until 3am or 4am and then have to rise again at 6am to get kids fed and off to school on time. But hey, why not enjoy youth that is so fleeting.

5. I wish my mother could see me being a mother.

6. I love to read. I think I read fast, but I know I read slow. I take my time to enjoy a book. The book I'm reading right now is from a favorite author of mine: Betrayed: Days of the Rogue by Nicky Charles. She is a great writer and her books are free. All she ask is that if you wish to donate, then give to a charity. Isn't that awesome?! You can learn more and find the rest of her books here.
I should say I'm re-reading this one so I can do a review and have fun being part of her street team.  She has a new book coming out in May which would be book #2 to this one and that will be the first book she'll be selling. I can't wait for #2!

7. I am a journeying Christian and I'm trying my best to live out loud.
You can learn more about me and my blog here.

I hang out all over the place:

  1. What a fun video!

    I love the pic of your children. They're gorgeous, Colette. And you're right, kids are huge huge huge huge blessings. :)

    My daughter is a dancer like you. She even synchronizes dances here w/her little brother. Quite the show the two of 'em put on, let me tell you. :)

    That's a fun fact about the author. I've never heard of anyone doing that in writing before.

    1. Thank you Rosey!
      I should update that photo too. They've grown much! But I love this photo! They are indeed huge blessings :)

      You should video your daughter and son dancing. Those are precious memories :)

      Aloha :)

    2. We've got about 9bazillion videos. They video themselves together too. Hilarious and very sweet. :)

  2. Love the video, great song:) I love to dance to, especially with my children, that really is fun! This is my first time joining this party, it seems to be a great event!

  5. Hey Baby Girl, wanted to wish you a wonderful weekend, and look what I find. Are you booging without me! LOL Love the video, and love to dance. My back was feeling so much better until I ran out of medicine. So I'm checking in on buying it from Canada because it's much cheaper from there. Wow, this song really makes you feel like dancing. Hey a party is not a party without music, and without DANCING! I totally agree. So LET'S BOOGIE!!! JUST YOU & ME! WE'D RIP UP THE FLOOR WOULDN'T WE??/ hehehehehe HUGS

    1. Dolly I know you are awesome fun and would light up any party, so of course we'd be burning heel on the floor!

      Thanks for visiting.

      I really hope your back feels better soon and that meds come sooner!


  6. Hello Callie, your party sounds like my kind of party! My family hails from Mexico and the parties are louder, longer and with more food than you can stuff in. I am happy to be your newest follower via the UBP14

  8. Hi Callie - so lovely to find some music at the party! I'm off to have an explore of your site, hopefully you'll stop by my place for a visit too:

  9. Hi Callie! I have music at my party too. ;) I agree, it is not a party without music. I love the video/music you chose. Your children are absolutely adorable. I am glad you came to UBP14 where I was able to get to meet you.

  10. Hi Callie! I joined the UBP14 and found your blog. Just read the post Dancing on Race and was very moved by it. I look forward to reading more of your posts. I hope you will visit my blog “the most - - of every moment” some time, and say hello!

  11. Hi, Callie! I'm visiting for the UBP. YOu have a lovely blog and those two kids of your are just absolutely adorable!

  12. Collette, great to "meet you" through #UBP14 -- I am a night owl, too. :)

  13. You are so right = every party needs music!
    I have not been blogging recently because I have been doing more book reviews and have joined some street teams. While fun, it can take a lot of time.

  14. I like that they are bringing in different performers into the video. How fun, and funny!

  15. You just can't have a party without music, can you? I love music! That's a fun video, and it's a great song to start the week off on 4M. Keep on dancin' the week away! ;)

  16. Greetings Collette,

    I wholeheartedly dig you on numbers 1, 2 and 3. Thank you for the invite and fun welcome.

  17. Stopping by from #UBP14! You are so right that a party needs music!! My little one and I enjoyed listening while I read your post. Nice to meet you Callie. :)

  18. I love this. It is so nice to get to know you better. These kinds of posts are my favourite. I love music and dancing as well...I think most people from the Caribbean do. :)


I appreciate your thoughts - Colette
