Monday Listicles

Slightly confused here!!!

I remember calling for fall must haves list, making one and reading yours. Yet as another sunny, warm and all around summer like day comes to an end I cannot help but wonder if it was a tad premature. Honestly the weather in Pacific Northwest has been so amazing I feel like I have to be sarcastic just to counteract the effects of pure bliss.

That is why, even though I had grand visions of writing a list of lovely compliments to you, I reverted to my good old ways and made fun of my favorite subject- me. Because we Washingtonians are famous for being grumpy and rained on and I have been promoting this lovely state all wrong… Not to mention I only gave myself 10 minutes to write this because we received the most spectacular package in the mail and I have a whole LEGO city to build, so I really must dash. THANK YOU DIANE, G, J2 and RILEY!

Soooooo, I am counting on you to write awesome lists of 10 COMPLIMENTS.

Next week is going to be a great one. Christine suggested a wonderful topic and I believe it is as thoughtful as her blog and you will love! Your mission, should you choose to except it, is to find Random Reflectionz among the linked blogs this week and see what Christine would like for us to write about next Monday.


Here are my ten compliments. Kind of.
Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!



1. You are an amazing cook. More than once my dog walked away from the dinner I made.

2. You should be on a cover of a magazine. Unless they were talking about ‘Frazzled moms monthly’.

3. You sing wonderfully. No proof required, just trust me on that one.

4. Your home is beautiful. More like delightful or loved, which is code for messy.

5. You are so good with money. Unless they meant good at spending it.

6. I love your craft projects. Unless they are talking about the ones I pinned. Or planned on pinning.

7. You have the firmest six pack I have ever seen. What six pack? I don’t even drink beer.

8. You are so poetic. Ya’ll read this blog right?

9. I love your hair like this. Pony tail? Why yes, it took me ages to pull it back like that.

10. You are so good at spelling. Well I have left a comment or two on your blog, so no need to elaborate.

    Haha, we’re total twins! I’d never get ANY of these compliments either. I rely on my spam, as you’ll see ;)

    There’s no accounting for the taste of dogs. Honestly, ours would find a dead frog, roll in for half an hour, than eat it. then puke….well, you got the picture. I am sure you cook much better than dead, rolled on, repeating frog. :)

    #5 – that’s totally what “good with money” means.

    I don’t care if you can cook, or draw, or sing or keep house…you simply rock my friend! You make everyone’s week start off right.

    Well, I’d like to second Rorybore’s compliment and say you are the best listmaster and make waking up on Monday morning much easier!!! Oh, and you take awesome photographs. You can buy the dog a bag of food at the store!!! :)

    I probably wouldn’t get any of those either, especially about my house… LOL great take on the topic!

  6. Posted October 7, 2012 at 19:20 by Brandee | Permalink

    Hahaha! I love it! I also have a delightful house, as I mentioned a few weeks ago. I will never get complimented on my crafts either. What a fantastic list.

    I, too, will never be complimented on my crafting skills. I don’t even tease myself by pinning them. Me? No craft talent whatsoever. I like your take on the list!

    Well. Ima gonna tell ya that spelling is overrated and you are one fine lady!

    Now I’m disturbed that “gonna” does not rate a red squiggly line. Really?? Ellen

    Frazzled Mom’s Monthly sounds like a great magazine. You should start that – you know in your spare time.

    When you are an amazing photographer you don’t have to be good at anything else :p

    10. Spelling. You mean like how you wrote then instead of than in number 1?

    Don’t be angry. I have issues.

    Since you can’t compliment yourself properly (heh), I’ll do it for you.

    You’re an amazing photographer, a great mom (and dog owner). You are kind and down-to-earth and genuine.

    This list was too cute. Here are some compliments for you: You are an amazing photographe and a great blogger. You are a funny and smart woman! And the list could go on and on! ;)

  17. Posted October 8, 2012 at 00:29 by Diane | Permalink

    Soooooo…can I copy & paste your list??? You pretty much covered all my ummmm “unreceived compliments”. Haahaaa!

    BTW…thanks for the mention. :D

    I’m completely with you on number three and it is the one lacking talent I’ve always wished I’d been blessed with. Sigh…doesn’t stop me from belting it out in the car though!

    I’ll bet you could make an even longer list of compliments you do receive though! Your photography, for one, is breathtaking. Just sayin’. ;) :

    You are so funny! The weather is starting to freak me out. But I think the rain is returning by Friday, so we can return to our normal selves soon. ;-)

      I checked the weather report before I jinx it :) We are in the clear for another week but to be honest I will not mind the rain when it comes…

  26. Posted October 8, 2012 at 09:21 by Jessica | Permalink


    At least you will always be complimented on your beautiful photography.

    Haha–I can really relate to #6. “Your home is adorable” or “charming”!! Never clean, hip, up to date, or uncluttered. Oh well!!

    Frazzled, pinless and hair held up by a fraying rubber band. That’s me too. (You probably have cute ribbons to tie up your ponytail.)

    Seriously, I think you are underselling yourself! Those head shots you took of yourself w/your camera were totally cover girl worthy!

    • Posted October 9, 2012 at 10:19 by Stasha | Permalink

      I will practice excepting a compliment gracefully and say thank you. I will not mention at all the fact that I wore lots of makeup and indeed have photoshop at my disposal ;)

  31. Posted October 8, 2012 at 19:37 by Clarinda @ Enjoying | Permalink

    I’m linking up so late in the day! Your list was hilarious as usual.

    Legos more legos where? You do have a lovely house it looks lived in and comfortable.

    Stasha – love your take on the compliments list – there are tons of compliments I’ll never receive (including many of yours), but I know for sure I’d not have stated them so cleverly! I love love love your listicles! What a great way to get to know another! Thank you…

  34. Posted October 9, 2012 at 02:03 by Dominique | Permalink

    I too will never receive any complements about the (messy) house. Love your listicles:P
