Blue Magnolia and a little Bon Jovi

Gotcha! Bet you thought I was going to write about a blue magnolia flower, didn't you?!!

Not so. This is Magnolia, aka Noli, when she was just a tiny thing.

 Yep, turned blue as the Bluebonnets that bloom here in Texas.

We didn't know what to make of it.

But then, both mommy and daddy are as blue as Smurfs!

Wait! What's that?!! Is her lip starting to curl just a bit?

Elvis Noli!!

OK.... I'll fess up
She's blue through the magic of photo editing.
(but I bet you already guessed that!)

Mommy and daddy, in their quirky way, changed their little Magnolia to blue!

And now for our musical interlude  ------ Jon Bon Jovi  ------

Bon Jovi performs at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Friday, March 1, 2013.

This is a singer who has only gotten better over the years....

"We Weren't Born to Follow" 2009

This is an excellent song and video, especially in light of all the destruction that's been recently suffered from tornadoes, fires and explosions. Jon Bon Jovi said that this song was about "working people picking themselves up by their boot straps in hard times." I think it works for these people too -- you've just got to go on, no matter how hard.

and because I just have to include this one....
"You Give Love a Bad Name"

Early Bon Jovi from 1986

Sharing Blue Magnolia and Bon Jovi over at Miss Jenny's for Alphabe-Thursday where we are studying the letter B.
and on Friendship Friday which has music as a theme
and on Blue Monday, since Noli is about as blue as you can get!
and on GRAND Social at Grandma's Briefs which is a new-to-me meme for grandparents!!

What gorgeous eyes she had even back then! Too funny about the blue.

were they always blue, or is that a recent occurrence? Never listened to Bon Jovi, but I (of course) recognize his name... {:-D

Pondside said...

Clever, you! Blue Magnolia is gorgeous.

Baby Noli is so cute! Have a wonderful weekend! :)

Esther Joy said...

Blue babies are scary for those of us who have been or are in the medical field! I'm glad it was just the photo editing that caused the blue!

Rose said...

Noli was too cute as a baby! Look at those lips!

SmilingSally said...

LOL Although blue is my favorite color, I am glad that Noli isn't permanently blue.

Happy Blue Monday, Sarah.

Love the Smurf-y looking family... and Bon Jovi, too. Thank you so much for joining the GRAND Social! It's a pleasure to meet you and your blue-tinged family.

She is a little beauty, blue and all.

I love her name, Elvis Noli... One day she will be more famous than Bon Jovi!

Brilliant post for the letter B.
