Monday Listicles

You have landed to the page that is home to a fantasticle listicle.

Yup. Welcome. Hope you are holding a beverage and have time to read a whole lotta great blog posts. Just like all the wonderful lists everyone joined in with last week. I know some might think listing things we would miss when we are gone is rather morbid. But after writing mine and reading all of yours I felt overwhelmed with gratitude and pumped all week to grab life by the horns! Thank you my friends.

Now I called for list of 10 thanks for today. Frankly I had no idea until this morning what to write or what I meant by that. So I am curious to see what this meant to you!

Before you rush off, big surprise! Guess who is picking the topic for next week? It’s Robbie from Fractured Family Tales. She always writes a great list, has me in stitches and gets double, triple extra points for visiting all your lists too. I am so excited to see what she choses for all of us to write about next Monday!

Right now, list 10 THANKS. Cannot wait to see where this takes you!

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



1. Thanks to island living I have no idea what being stuck in traffic is like.

2. Thanks to our dog and horse my son is incredibly comfortable around animals.

3. Thanks to watching Fawlty Towers I learned English effortlessly.

4. Thanks to Instagram I waste what little me time I have.

5. Thanks to no self control I outgrew all my jeans.

6. Thanks to my wonderful husband I have a new vacuum cleaner and no excuses to avoid housework left.

7. Thanks to my grandpa I grew up striving every day to be an honorable person.

8. Thanks to Nikon I am always broke.

9. Thanks to my son I know love beyond words.

“Mommy I love more then anyone and anything and more then all the mess in my room.”

– Little J yesterday morning.

10. Thanks to your fun lists Monday is my favorite blogging day!

      I really do sound a lot like John Cleese. So I assume you sound a bit like Ed o’Neill? 🙂

    I saw your Instagram so I know you got the vacuum because you weren’t paying attention (giggle). I would jump up and down with thrill and I have a good one! I LOVE Little J’s quote. He rules.

    And Robbie? She’s so amazing. Always retweeting blog notifications. Can’t wait to see what she suggestion.

      OH my gosh, I opened the vacuum today and it is one of those cordless posh things. Apparently ideal for vacuuming cars, stairs and all the hard to reach places. It is like the man does not know me at all!!! I would never, ever clean the car without a bribe or death threat!

      My husband sometimes reads my blog. He meant well. I felt compelled 😉

      he really has a way with words doesn’t he? he will talk his way into your heart and out of anything 😉

  2. I’m glad I’m not the only one who gets excited over a new vacuum cleaner. Seriously, it would make my day!

    No traffic?! Grrrrr. :/. I suppose I should be thankful I’m not battling NY traffic or that of California. But stil….

    Love J’s declaration! Lil Duck has come up with some really good ones that manage to knock my knees out and fill my heart to overflowing.

    Here is a listicle idea – the Brewsters Millions challenge – how would you spend $30 million in 30 days without having an assets at the end?

      I like it. But you mean we cannot go into Tiffany’s at all?! Not sure girls will agree with that 🙂

    Thanks for writing a lighthearted list of thanks and giving me another way to approach this type of list (which I’ve written a few other times on my blog). So much fun! And I can relate to the no-self-control part!

      I am sitting here reading your blog and eating ice cream. That would be a no right?

  7. Oh wow, I am so glad I found your site! What a beautiful idea. I got here from Yeah Write (Erica). Every Tuesday my blog post is called “gratituesday” – things to be grateful for, on Tuesday. 🙂 Thank you!!
