Giggles & Contagious Laughter

I hope your weekend is off to a good start.  I enjoyed a nice 20 minute run outside.  I took this picture yesterday before the rain moved in.  It’s much more dreary and rainy today.  Ugh.

I stopped to smell the roses the Bird of Paradise

I came inside and made a Biggie Microwave Banana Oat Cake

I shared half with Skylar

And we had a few Mounds Balls, too

And then Skylar danced around and got the giggles.   Must be the Mounds Balls.  Or anything, really. She just gets the giggles, randomly.

Last night for dinner I heated up some Vegan Sloppy “Lentil & Bean” Joes for dinner and paired it with a salad.

I dressed the salad with Cheezy Hemp Salad Dressing

If you don’t have Hemp Oil, you can use EVOO or even coconut oil.  The nooch is where it’s at for me, anyway.

From my last post on my Wish List – Part 2, thanks for sharing what your wish list items are.  Lots of you agreed with the Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer and personal masseuse.  We can dream and wish.

And thanks for letting me know about some Reader’s Requests topics you’d like to see more of.

Dessert:  Raw Vegan Gingerbread Cookie Dough Balls

As I said yesterday when I posted my no-bake pumpkin pie dessert suggestion, it may not necessarily be pumpkin or gingerbread season, but I’ve never known blog readers to pass up a pumpkin or gingerbread.  Especially in the form of Starbucks seasonal lattes. No lattes here, just balls.


1. Best thing you’ve ate or done so far this weekend?

Watching Skylar laugh and laugh was highly entertaining and the best thing so far.

2. Did you ever just get the giggles as a kid?  Or do you get them now?

I remember spontaneously just laughing and laughing as a child and not being able to stop!  What sweet memories to just be that happy for no special reason.

I think I outgrew the spontaneous giggles by junior high or so.  I even remember getting in trouble from teachers while having my own little gigglefest going.

3. Do you think laughter is contagious?

I do!  I think we’ve all been in situations where one person starts laughing and then just watching them laugh is so funny.  And another person starts laughing at the person laughing.  And it multiplies and spreads.  And pretty soon the whole room is busting out with laughter, for no special reason.  And no one even knows why they’re laughing!  Seeing friends laugh and laugh just makes me laugh even more.

Spontaneous, contagious laughter for sure.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Thanks very much for your flawless post;this is the stuff that keeps me going through my day. I have been searching around for this site after I heard about them from a buddy and was pleased when I found it after searching for awhile. Being a avid blogger, I’m happy to see others taking initivative and contributing to the community. Just wanted to comment to show my approval for your article as it is very energizing, and many bloggers do not get credit they deserve. I am sure I’ll drop by again and will spread the word to my friends.

  2. Best thing on Saturday: visited the Big Sky Ranch Animal Sanctuary. What a great job they are doing!

    Occasionally I laugh and can’t stop. My stomach & lungs hurt. My brothers call this “breaking Beth”.

    Laughter is absolutely contagious. Thankfully!

    Skylar looks like she is having such fun.

  3. I went to a Catholic school so we went to church (which was next to the school) with class twice a month. My bestie and I always seemed to get hit with uncontollable giggles mid mass and always heard about it afterwards. We just seemed to set eachother off!! And I think certain laughter is contagious. I have a few friends with GREAT belly laughs and I always end up laughing with them. Forced laughter isn’t contagious, IMO, though….

  4. I definitely still get the giggles from time to time and I LOVE when that happens!

  5. Oddly the weather here has been gogeous for the weekend despite the dreary weather reports. A little chilly, but I’ll take it!

    Yum, I’ve gotta try the Raw Vegan Gingerbread Cookie Dough Balls.

    1. Movie and dinner out with hubby.
    2. As a kid sure, never as an adult though.
    3. It can be, but not as contagious as yawning unfortunately.

  6. Such a beautiful child, she looks great when laughing pray to God make her every time.
