Monday Listicles

Back again, with a list of ten.

That kind of rhymed, ha? Never mind. Last week I spend glued to your lists, there were so many great interpretations. It amazed me how most of us moms were missing similar things. And how happy we all are.

Kim chose Yin Yang and I was so excited. Because who doesn’t like a challenge. OK, so I had to google it first to make sure I know what Yin Yang is, but I am happy to report I knew all along. I did end up asking my Husband to help out and my son too. I asked my dog as well, while I was laying under him trying to shave of his mats, although he did not contribute. But it gave me an idea. So this weeks list is a family effort.

Guess who is choosing a topic for our lists next week? She is from the South of Italy, writes awesome lists and just went on a great date. Yes, Sara!
In case you are new: your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find her blog among the link ups and see what she would like us to write the list about next time. Sorpresa!

Lets get started.

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!

      Thank you Alison. I was going to be all deep and cleverly write something meaningful. But guess what, not me…

          Thank you. I did use some deep tones in a few photo edits 🙂 You always make me laugh!

  1. Stasha, this post ROCKS!!! I love how you took this topic and made it something all of your own! Your little boy won’t be the small one for so long, and it is so cute how they are the same height right now. #4 cracked me up! I think we all need to see a photo of you giving your dog a trim sometime 🙂 I think my favorite is #1, because it’s just really sweet and true. I love how your mind works! I’m excited to see next week’s topic. Thank you again for letting me choose this week’s topic.

      Thank you Kim. I love a good challenge. Great topic!! I wanted to make a meaningful story out of it, but I was left empty. Must be the cold 🙂
      I was laying under my dog for an hour last night, shaving of his mats. And you cannot even tell. Until I had my dog I never knew that much hair can grow on such small footage. I am excited too. And Sara usually links up GMT so it will not be until tomorrow we see what we are writing. You must choose the topic again soon!!

    Very creative, Stasha! I love seeing pictures of you 🙂 Chocolate with peppers? Can this be true? I think I need more details before I try that combination 😉

      It is 70 %dark chocolate with chilli. A bit spicy, very tasty. I also love dark with sea salt. Chilli one was from Lindt but I have not seen it in our stores around here. Hope they have it in yours!
      And thank you for the compliment. It is not because I am shy, just always the one taking the pictures.

      Yep, match made in heaven. Just like you and your Yin. And mini Yin off course.

      Honest, it is yummy. Think Mayans put a bit of chili in hot chocolate too. But then again they are a lost civilisation. Maybe too much of a good thing…
      Love your list too!

    great topic…and a challenge! I’m happy that it’s only barely Monday in the states, so I feel like I have some extra hours to figure it out. Your photos have inspired me so I’m going to walk around with my camera today (HELLO TOURIST LADY) and see what happens. Probably the lens will steam up. I’d love for you to write a camera tips post – maybe my lens is dirty or something, but the colors in my pix are never as saturated as yours. Of course, maybe that’s just where you live…all those deep greens and blues. Luverly!

  4. I’ve been reading everyone’s Yin Yang lists, and I’m glad I am not the only one who found it so hard! I’m sorry if I chose a brain cruncher for the topic 🙂 I so often just jump on an idea without thinking it through too much. And after this brain exercise of yin yang, I’m really struggling to do the scavenger hunt! How do you find the photos you take each week for it? I’m so glad next week’s topic will be a bit easier, more enjoyable 🙂

      Everybody followed the topic so everybody loved your challenge! It is nice to get out of our comfort zones, that is what prompts are all about.
      I am excited about next weeks topic too. Hope I don’t just write MY BED ten times 🙂
      As for the hunt, i do think about it, but often I end up seeing them as I go. Or I just click photos of things I like and noticed they contain the prompt anyway!! Have fun, cannot wait to see it Kim!

      Thank you Jacqui! I played back in England. Great fun and other team members are always handsome 🙂 I love your list! You have been promoted to an adopted aunt to my son!

          Goes without saying. Dog and kid are like Laurel and Hardy. They always come in package!

      Silly you. Your writing rocks. I say so and so does everyone else. I just wanted others to get to know your blog, it is so worth visiting! One day…

      Do join us next week! Would love for everybody to meet your blog! The theme is 10 places you love as chosen by Sara. How about you take photos of ten places you love or just post some from your archives?

    This is great. I love the “comic book” layouts. 🙂 I will hopefully be back next week. Aug has been ridiculous. As if the illness wasn’t enough, now I’m prepping for a hurricane. At least the earthquake wasn’t too bad. LOL FUN!

      I hope your colds are all gone. We have just started turning for the better. This is a very strange virus indeed.
      Cannot wait to have you back. Whenever. Be safe, this hurricane too shall pass.
