#SongLyricSunday ♫ “Ashes” – Celine Dion


Hi all, don’t forget to stop by Helen’s blog, This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time to join in the fun or check out all of the other song picks for today! I know I just included this in my “Top 12 Things I Learned From Watching Deadpool 2” post last week, but the song is too fitting for today’s theme, so I had to share it again.

This week’s theme is: Soul

Everyone knows who Celine Dion is and this song is no less of an inspirational masterpiece than the rest of her tracks – BUT, for those who don’t already know, it is the theme song for Deadpool 2 – which is why the video is both beautifully moving and quite humorous. It’s a good combination to kick off your Sunday, right? 😀 (p.s. you won’t understand the high heels unless you’ve seen the movie, but trust me, it’s funny.) Enjoy!

What’s left to say?
These prayers aren’t working anymore
Every word shot down in flames

What’s left to do with these broken pieces on the floor?
I’m losing my voice calling on you

‘Cause I’ve been shaking
I’ve been bending backwards till I’m broke
Watching all these dreams go up in smoke

Let beauty come out of ashes
Let beauty come out of ashes
And when I pray to God all I ask is
Can beauty come out of ashes?

Can you use these tears to put out the fires in my soul?
‘Cause I need you here, woah

‘Cause I’ve been shaking
I’ve been bending backwards till I’m broke
Watching all these dreams go up in smoke

Let beauty come out of ashes
Let beauty come out of ashes
And when I pray to God all I ask is
Can beauty come out of ashes?

Can beauty come out of ashes?

So true, but… the wonderful Karissa over at Sexy Romance Novels has tagged me for these 15 Weird Questions on her blog (Go check out her answers) which sounded like fun, so I’m going to fill you in on things you probably never wanted to know about me! 🙂

Freebie: Alice in Wonderland is my favorite childhood story – especially since it opened the way for games like Alice: Return to Madness. my 🎮

Weird Q&A

#1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you?


#2. What’s a weird habit of yours?

I always make sure there is nothing liquid anywhere near my laptop if I have to walk away from it for any reason – yet while I’m using it, my coffee cup is always within reach!

#3. Do you have any weird phobias?

Yes, I’m afraid of open heights, but not enclosed ones.

#4. What’s a song you secretly LOVE to blast & belt out when you’re alone?

“Lover Girl” by Teena Marie 😀

#5. What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?

People who have nothing better to do than preach at and/or condemn others, especially when they only do it online because they would never have the guts to say it to someone’s face. (And they’re usually hypocrites, to boot.)

#6. What’s one of your nervous habits?

When I’m extremely nervous about being in a public place (introvert anxiety) I have the habit of making myself come across as completely unapproachable.

#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?

Whichever’s closest to the door.

#8. What was your first stuffed animal & what was its name?



This brown dog I didn’t get to name, because it came with a name tag already sewn onto it. Her name is Henrietta.  Apparently a popular item in the 70’s (or maybe that was only in Germany?) Picture shown is not mine – but, I do still have her!


#9. What’s the drink you ALWAYS order at Starbucks?

Caramel Macchiato.

#10. What’s the beauty rule you preach… but never ACTUALLY practice?

I don’t preach any, but there are plenty I don’t practice that I wish I did!

#11. Which way do you face in the shower?

Away from the water for the most part.

#12. Do you have any ‘weird’ body ‘skills’?

I can stand with my feet facing opposite directions beside one another – I think it’s a leftover byproduct of childhood ballet lessons.

#13. What’s your favorite ‘comfort food’ / food that’s ‘bad’ but you love to eat it anyway?

Potato chips.  Love potato chips!

#14. What’s a phrase or exclamation you always say?

Your face! (My youngest son is always trying to trip me up by making me say “your mom” back to him, so I burn myself… so far, I’ve been fairly good at not falling for it!) 😀

#15. Time to sleep – what are you ACTUALLY wearing?

T-shirt and sweats/leggings, or just a t-shirt/tank-top if it’s really hot.
