Zoiks!!

The day is almost over and so is the A-Z Challenge.  This month went by so quickly.
For this, the very last and one of my most loved letters, I am going to share a few of my favorite Z's.

Zeppo, the odd man whose lack of oddness is what makes him not fit in to this bunch.  He was less kooky and a bit more suave.



Zeppelin, led or otherwise.  


Zelda, especially the Ocarina of Time.  Great memories of my kids playing this game, they absolutely loved it.  Nostalgia!  Love the music from it too.


Zooey, not only do I enjoy seeing her in movies, but I also love her voice.


Zumba, a super fun way to get your abs and tush in shape.  The only catch, you actually have to do it for it to work.


And last, but definitely not least, my daughter Zara.
Looking forward to seeing her and spending time with her, it's been too long.

Happy Z day and the end of this alphabetical challenge.


Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace, like thoughts inside a dream 
Heed the path that led me to that place, yellow desert stream 
My Shangri-La beneath the summer moon, I will return again 
Sure as the dust that floats high in June, when movin' through Kashmir. 
~Led Zeppelin

  4. So very nice to meet you! I came by the other day and was unable to leave a comment. I am looking forward to getting to know you and being your latest follower.
    This was an interesting challenge and your writing is very good.
    Love the name of your daughter and what a beautiful young lady she is. I know how it is to miss them.
    Thank you for all the kind words you left me on my site and for entering my chocolate giveaway. It ends tonight at midnight and I use the number generator to pick my winner. I just wish everyone that entered could win. Good luck to you
    Love
    Maggie

  6. Oh, I bet if you put Zeppo next to a bunch of normal people, he'd look like the oddball. Compared to his brothers, "a bit more suave" basically means he doesn't insult women or honk a horn at them... but it's still an accurate description.

    Excellent other choices, too (even if I'd rather get into shape with Ocarina of Time than Zumba). And congrats on making it through the Challenge in one piece!

  8. Tara, you are so bright and cheery, like a ray of sunshine, it's been great to get to know you through this challenge. And nope, I haven't seen that movie yet, but I think we have it on our netflix que.

    Thanks Noemi, it definitely got a bit more challenging, especially towards the end. The letters and the constant blogging kind of wore me out, haha! Who knew blogging could be so exhausting. But soo happy to have met you, I've really enjoyed getting to know you. Thanks, the weekend has been great.

    Talei, thank you! I've enjoyed the aspect of meeting everyone, but blogging everyday was getting a bit overwhelming. It was an awesome challenge though, so glad I did it! Great to meet you!

    Hi Maggie, I am truly happy to meet you too! You are so fun and I love your blog and all of your lovely family, nostalgic pictures. I look forward to getting to know you better too! Thanks for visiting me too!

    Li, thanks! Yes, I love their music too, it's so awesome and takes me back.

    Hi Nate, haha, you make me laugh!! The way you think is truly unique and funny. I love Harpo and his honking, so darn funny! I should Zumba, but instead spent the evening playing Donkey Kong and eating chips & dip, I don't think that will help.

    Elizabeth, thanks so much! It's great to have made it through, I feel accomplished!

  9. Ooh, I'm a fan of Zooey too! I loved watching her in Elf.

    I can't believe the A to Z Challenge is over already. Time flew by!

    So glad I got to "meet" a lot of great people during the challenge. Looking forward to more of your posts!
