Monday Listicles

Happy Monday!

I am in total shock that it is end of May already. Are you all looking forward to summer? I know Jen is!

Last week you all warmed my heart. Even my husband was amazed that no bashing occurred in your lists about 10 things that husbands should. I just hope all the men out here understood that this does not mean we will quit nagging; but only cause we love you.

Before I call the next weeks topic I just wanted to say thank you. For being my friends, inspiring writers and great list makers. I am so excited to have you join me each week with your wonderful stories and fun comments. So naturally next weeks topic…has nothing to do with all this. I say make: LIST OF 10 SUMMER MEMORIES.

First thing is first though. Here comes this week’s listicle. Home edition.

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




1. Happy

2. Messy

3. Cozy

4. Sunny

5. Neighborly

6. Appelized ( revised to appleized )

7. Loving

8. Warm

9. Sustainable

10. Ours

    Great list! It took me a minute to realize what Appelized meant… :) Your home sounds like a great place to be.

      I married a window. And as much as I wowed not to change the man I sure have changed all the gadgets. Long live apples 😉

        Now I’m really confused. You married a window? :-)!

    Your home sounds perfect! I am a little confused about the appelized. Do you have an apple theme, or have you made it appealing? Am I dense? :-)

    • Iza Trapani May 28, 2012 at 06:04 #

      Or is it apple computers?

        All the gadgets in my house are Apple. If they start making stoves I will probably be the first one to buy it :)

      Do you think the word is catchy though? I am determined to have it in the dictionary one day :)

      • Iza Trapani May 28, 2012 at 12:06 #

        Totally catchy! But I think the spelling should be appleized. I love my apple products too :)

    Great words! I should have put happy on mine. I did choose “ours” as my last word for our house, too. I bet your house would be a fun place to visit!

    Appelized – love it! If I’d had to guess for you, my first thought would’ve been “happy” so glad I see it on your list. I think of the phrase “the good life” often, too, and like that you spend so much of your time here sharing what’s great about your life and family. It’s inspiring me to do more of that and less venting on my own blog. Thank you!

    …as a diehard list maker all I can say is
    “What an awesome idea!” I will be back next week with:
    1. a blog post
    2. a list
    3. a photo or two to accompany my list
    4. a virtual pen to cross things off my list!
    5. a kudo for Stasha for this brilliant ‘meme’

    And you made me pause then snort over Appelized. Ellen

      It took me years and all my spending money to turn our Windows into Apples… It is my one major contribution to decorating this house. That and IKEA furniture 😉
      And you bet it is messy. My kid just made me pretend pizza. Not sure why he has to use so many real tools and toys to make a pretend dish?!?!!!

    I don’t know what Appelized means. Also? I can’t seem to link up; having all kinds of technical difficulties.

    I think 3 of your words are on my list too.

      Sorry Jen. It looks like the linky tools are not allowing the images to be fetched from the site. But I see you are up there with the generic thumbnail. Later tonight I will see if I can put your buttons there. It is the day we celebrate my husband so I am neglecting Listicles until tonight a bit.
