Monday Listicles

Hello December!

Can you believe it? It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! This song has been stuck in my head for a week now so I am passing on the cheer. You’re welcome…

Last week we shared some phone photos and list of baby names. I am still reading the lists! Thank you Jessica for suggesting not one but two great topics!

This week’s list had me in panic, I am not one to talk about how amazing I am. I do like a challenge, thank you very much Mrs.M from The Bonny Bard, so I was eager to face it. Funny enough, I was surprised how easy it was for me to write it and a good reminder to pat ourselves on the back and celebrate the greatness that is us! I am curious to see your 10 REASONS I AM GREAT.

Next week we have an easy peasy task, suggested by Bridget :

Anything food she says? You’re on girl!

Now let’s celebrate the magic of us, list makers.

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




1. I rarely complain.

2. Even my kid thinks I am funny. So I must be.

3. I always try my best.

4. I can wear the highest of heels very gracefully.

5. I am a problem solver.

6. I am honest.

7. I have some undeniable talents.

8. I am aware of my shortcomings.

9. I have a very nice ‘matako’.

10. I genuinely care.

    What a nice, feel-good list! I can’t tell you how jealous I am of the ability to wear heels – I used to be self-conscious about my height, so I never got any practice, and of course now I never have any occasion.

    I heard that song today and have been singing it ever since! I too, admire that you can wear high heels gracefully – the word ‘graceful’ is not often used to describe me, even in flats. :)

    Damn you and your heels! Maeve has discovered my only pair of super high ones, and I swear at nearly 3 she can walk better than I ever have!

    Matako huh? I gotta look that up. My fave on your list is that you care. I have never met you but I would definitely guess that about you.

    You ARE great. It’s hard to write a list like this, isn’t it? I kinda copped out. But in all fairness, I did write a list of things I’m good at a while back. So I had to put a new spin on the topic.

    I am jealous that you can wear heels and do it well. I don’t do it well at all.
    I am trying to get back into the game as far as blogging and so I am linking up after a long hiatus. Working full time out of the home for the first time since 2007 has knocked me on my butt. But I’m back.

    I think you’re funny too! And I so envy you the heels thing, the most I can say is that I can wear heels for very short periods of time without falling over…

    I am so very impressed that you rarely complain AND that you wear heels. I am a big complainer (at least on my blog, perhaps more than in real life?) and at 5’11 I never wear heels, so when I do it is a disaster. Great list!

    Umm big chest and high heels on a short body are never a good combination.. I too have a great sense of humor and my kids are well trained at quick wit and comebacks lol..

    That whole heels with grace thing is so important! If I manage to not trip or roll an ankle I end up walking as though I’ve recently been impaled with a fence post. Some women just shouldn’t….I’m probably one of them.

    Rarely complain? What does that even mean????? LOL I have never really worn high heels. Since I stand 5’10”, I’ve just never felt the need. I wonder if I would have had I watched Wendy WIlliams back in the way day? :) I just prefer bare foot, flip flops or tennis shoes. I can’t get comfy in heels. I had to ask the lovelies to tell why I’m great. It was fun!

    Good for you, for rarely complaining. A day doesn’t go by that I don’t ;). And what is matako? NM, I googled it. Haha. Good you like yours!

      I have been told it is my best feature. I used to be upset about it back in my twenties, now I wish to hear that more often. Luckily my husband still thinks it is great. That and my sense of humor. But I think by that he means the fact I laugh at his jokes 😉

    I read your posts and rarely comment – not sure why? I really enjoy your Monday Listicles and hope to get on the ball enough to participate one of these days. Your list of what makes you great is perfection – a great mix of confidence and humility! Well done!

      I don’t comment on most of the posts I read everyday. Most I subscribe by email, read and enjoy. So I can relate to this very much.
      Will be great to have you join in and meet others Mary!!!

    okay. I am hopeless in high heels. Won’t even buy them anymore. And I had to google the world matako. So I learned that today.

    Oh Stasha, you are definitely talented, funny, and caring. And clearly a rarity in that you can wear heels! At 5’0″, I wore heels a lot as a teenager, but no more! It’s all about comfort now!

    […] This week’s entry in Monday Listicles is “10 Reasons I’m Great.” Honestly, I think this is something that not just moms, but women in general, often lose track of. Certainly there are plenty of conceited women out there–I have had my moments, I know–but all too often, we downplay our accomplishments and contributions. So what’s so great about me? […]
