Monday Listicles

We are back. Test Listicling.

Let me start by giving Ellen and Erin, The Sensible moms, a big shout out for choosing a smashing topic that was so much fun to write a list for last week. As you can tell I am avoiding writing the title, because I think I finally stopped humming that silly tune. Yes, that one. You are welcome. Thanks again ladies.

I am so very excited about next week. My dear neat and orderly friend Kim is going to call the topic for us. Your mission, should you choose to except it, is to find Kim’s blog among the linked bellow, find out what she chose and write it. Easy peasy. In case you do not know the super funny Kim Pugliano, remember G is Silent.

Right here, right now, show me what $1000 will buy you!

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





1. Gas up.

2. Drive down to Mount St. Helens.

3. Spend the night at the campsite. Or two. Or three.

4. Take a helicopter tour and fly over the lava dome.

5. Stop in IKEA and buy the stuffed carrot toy.

6. Stop in Seattle and have sushi in Japonessa.

7. Go to Pike Place Market and get half dozen donuts with sprinkles.

8. Stop at the delicatessen and stock up on Slovenian dark chocolate with sea salt.

7. Sit down at a coffee shop and watch the world go by.

8. Cheesecake.

9. Stop at a LEGO store on our way home and blow the rest of the money.

10. One more latte and scone for the road.

Apparently I should have said $10.000…

    Sushi sounds wonderful! And at the prices it’s going for, $1000 would be great!

    That sounds like a fun weekend! What a fun topic – $1000 to burn – no guilt, I assume? Awesome!

    $1000 isn’t nearly enough!! But I do love that you would take a road trip and make a stop at Ikea to buy a stuffed carrot toy. But of course!

    Ack! I’m sorry I haven’t linked up to your wonderful meme or visited your site in a while. I loved today’s!! And I love that our lists are similar in many ways.

    $1000 can really far, if you want it too. :)

    OH my, I`ll come. Sounds like so much fun. I`m up for sushi, scones and lattes any day!

    $1000 would be good too!

    Jealous! Must meet when relatives are gone to get the scoop. Will bribe you with scones or rice cakes whichever is allowed on your diet that day!

  16. Posted June 18, 2012 at 03:05 by Mark | Permalink

    Yep, if someone handed me $1000.00, I’d break down and buy the stuffed carrot toy too!

    $1000 was a tad limiting however sprinkled donuts sound just fabulous this morning! Loved the list topic. It was harder than I thought!

    Yes, that does sound more like a 10,000 dollar excursion. Wonderful way to spend $10,000. It would be no problem for my son to spend $1,000 in the LEGO store alone. In 30 minutes.

    Let’s go camping!! I would skip the helicopter ride (because they freak me out), but I’ll hold down the campsite while you take it in!

    And that Slovenian chocolate is divine!

    I am SO in for the helicopter ride. Do you mean to tell me you can actually go into IKEA and come out with just the one item??? You ARE amazing!

    Love your list! D

    I should have remembered cheesecake on my list! And yes, you should have given us $10,000. Can you find some kind of sponsor for this who will give all the participants real money? :)

    Oh my gosh, I love your list so much – it made me homesick :) Pike Place market is my all time favorite stop in Seattle, the flowers, the food, the coffee shops, all wonderful! I like how your list is full of small but awesome moments and treasures. I’ve been off my game with writing, I’m sorry I missed linking up but will be back soon :)
