Monday Listicles

Have you heard of places with no internet and no cell reception?

Seriously, they exist. We went on a skiing vacation in one of the best resorts our beautiful state has to offer this week. Amazing time, amazing place, great skiing. But NO twitter, facebook, Instagram, blogging! I could not google things and we called from a landline every morning to check the snow conditions on the mountain. In case you are unsure what house phone looks like:

Because it was the first time ever for my 5 year old son to see me use it!

Anyhow I taught Little J how to ski and play chess without an app and Big M found a bear without google maps. My husband did not irritate me in the least and we actually had a great time. So for this week’s listicle, chosen by The Bonny Bard I decided to narrow down 10 ways my partner’s awesome to just this past week. Cause you all already know my husband is sexy and kind and a great dad and writes my listicles for me and… So let me tell you some of the great things he did while on leave. And what makes your partner awesome?

Also due to no internet situation I am a little behind on reading your lists of 10 fantastic smells Kerry called for last week. I will catch up, promise. Thank you Kerry for a great suggestion.

Next week, how about a list of 10 things spring.

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



1. He grows a great beard.

2. He walks our dog in pouring rain.

3. He does most of the cooking.

4. He let me have extra alone skiing time.

5. He cleaned out the garage.

6. He did not talk about work at all.

7. He says cool old school stuff like: Listen to your mother son!

8. He chopped wood and made a fire just for me.

9. He said my hair looks great a few times this week.

10. He really stepped up yesterday morning when I double booked myself by mistake.

    A landline? What’s a landline? The cooking thing would win major awards in my book too. Your husband sounds pretty darn awesome!

    Wait, places where there’s no internet or cell phone? I don’t believe you! It must have just been broken or something, right? 😉

    Funny that you list beard-growing as number one! My hubs is good at that too. Maybe a little too good… he’s starting to look a little Grizzly-Adams-meets-hipster these days…

      Yep! You know it. Keeping your ears warm is not conducive with great hair. Specially if like me you forget the hairbrush at home…

    A tech-free getaway sounds lovely!

    How’s this for an idea- 10 books we could read again and again. (Has it been done?? Sorry, I’ve only been linking up since the new year, so I never what’s been done.)

    That is a great list and I life how you narrowed it down to a specific week. I love beards. Since my husband is now retired from the Marine Corps he’s grown one out and I absolutely love it.

    Awww. Such sweetness. I had a similar weekend backpacking on the Appalachian Trail. I love how you focused the list and that you appreciate the old school stuff he says. Erin

    that’s exactly why I like camping. it really forces you to unplug.
    also, the beard thing. scruffy is sexy sometimes.

    My linky is a picture of my stairs. Oops. I was laughing because I grew up and live in a town with population about 400 and we were the last place to get cable television when I was younger. Some people still don’t get good cell phone reception because we are on a mountain. Also, my two daughters’ grandfather lives in an area with no internet or cell phone reception. Sometimes I like the peace and quiet time. Your list was great. ‘cool things like ‘son listen to your mother’ made me laugh.

    Sounds like it was a fun vacation. Nice to unplug sometimes. And that was cute Little J and his first time with a landline phone!

    Nothing like being away from all the buzz. No internet, no cell phone? Sounds like heaven – at least for a shorter period. And it’s good for the younger generation to learn a little about basic life. Great list, by the way.
