Soo cute!! “Meghan Trainor “All About That Bass” Parody – “I Just Need Some Space”

I was up a bit way too late last night looking for adorable videos to share with you and found this gem! It’s super adorable… And so many precious and relatable moments! Like when she sings “…you know I can’t read that book for the 50 millionth time…” and how she looks at her husband and sings “…because I just need some space, need some space…”

I know you’ll love this, too! And see why it got over 4M views on You Tube.

Thanks so very much Deva for letting me share your precious video! So excited to see and share more from your blog MyLifeSuckers.

Happy December!

Why Can’t He Stay Little Forever?

Ohmygoodness! This is just soo sweet and touching. Four-year old Sadie doesn’t want her brand new baby brother to grow up. Through big tears, she says, “Oh, you are so cute…  I love your cute little smiles!  OHMYGOSH, I want him to stay little.”

She’s also feeling the fear and confusion of growing old and not living forever; and explaining it oh so well through her raw emotions, as she doesn’t have the understanding or language yet to wrap around the concept of mortality.

You’ll melt and see why this video got over 29M views.

What Us Moms Won’t Do For Our Kids

Okay, I’m in love with this video! I’ve seen it like 6 times already. And I smile (big) every time!

When 15 year old Sam’s mom walked up to the stage while Michael Bublé was in the middle of his concert, I bet he didn’t except what was coming next! This proud mom asks Michael if her son Sam could sing with him. After chatting a bit, he asks her (my favorite part of their conversation!) “…but you’re asking me. Are you telling me or are you asking me?” and she responds “I’m a mom”.

Love it! Her gut response speaks volumes…  And wait till you hear her son sing!  I’m guessing you’ll get goose bumps, too!  Soo sweet….

Love this! This mommy and daughter duet to Frozen’s “Love Is An Open Door” is soo precious… And I love how expressive they both are!

I had to include Aubrey’s (the mom) adorable caption when she first posted it on YouTube: “Mother daughter duet to “open doors” Frozen. I always have to be the boy;( lol”

Everything about this video is ADORABLE!

3.7 million views later, Aubrey and her daughter Teigan’s interview on Ellen.

Be sure to watch the whole interview.  Sooo sweet!  I was crying at the end!  And, I so agree with Ellen. This could be the cutest version of “Love Is An Open Door” on YouTube!  Hope you enjoy it too!

Photobombed My Fate! ♡

November 15, 2014


Do you believe in fate? Well, this precious couple does! When the newlyweds looked through their grandparent’s treasured photo albums, they found more than just happy memories. The couple discovered a photo taken long before their wedding day. The groom was building a boat in the sand with his sister and cousins in Mousehole, Cornwall, where the bride grew up – and she’s in the back of the picture playing at the beach with her family. The groom is originally from Kent, about 300 miles away from this spot and was there on a family vacation.

The two eventually and officially met in college and got married at the Gulval Church, just steps away from where the original photo was taken, two decades earlier.


Souls destined to meet? The picture speaks volumes ♡
