Monday Listicles

Allow me to vent a little.

So because of Linky tools or something scheduled posts don’t get published automatically?! And I cannot figure out how to embed pins. Or am I just so old and inflexible that I cannot figure out how to be a cool, organized, awesome blogger anymore? Or is it just because I have an epic cold and I might be unreasonably grumpy?

Because it is Monday afternoon and I realized that Listicles didn’t post last night and that the photos of my favorite 10 pins are not showing up not to mention that I haven’t actually pinned anything for ages. Clearly Pinterest is not my thing, possibly because it always makes me hungry and feel like a horrible, unorganized housekeeper. Also it sucks hours of my time and we all know I can kill a day without being productive one bit with just my iPhone in my hand so Pinterest must be avoided at all cost.

The nice barista at our local Starbucks did tell me and my friend Lily the other week that she loves our outfits and we are totally pinterestable. It’s been a long time since somebody wanted to pin me down or noticed I put some effort into matching my socks in the morning so that is officially the sweetest compliment of 2014. She probably just meant Lilyand I fell under it by default but hey, I’ll take it.

So I am now cornered to come up with something new for my list of top ten pins so I must improvise. So excited to see yours!

Next week:


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



1. Crafty projects- cause I will never attempt them.

2. Recipes – it’s not like I ever cook.

3. Cute outfits – cute clothes and slobbery dogs don’t match.

4. Make up ideas – why bother?

5. Cleaning ideas – why bother?

6. Wedding dresses – obviously.

7. Baby stuff – obviously.

8. Dieting tips – that’s just depressing.

9. Sylvester Stallone.

10. Bikinis. Seriously!

Monday Listicles

Hi there!

Sorry I am running a little late. Last week was one of the best ones yet-ever! My dear friend Lily Rose stopped by on her world travels and we had so much fun 24 hours in the day just weren’t enough. If you ever feel like having your morning coffee with a side of awesome you should visit her blog. I don’t think she has been in one spot for long in years and she makes traveling look like so much fun. Also my boys adore her. SO clearly she is good people!

I could not decide on just 10 favorite things about Autumn because I love it so I wrote first ten that came to mind. Let’s see what you got!

Next week:

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

Monday Listicles

You all are awesome!

Thanks for coming back to the listicles after the summer break. It was so much fun reading your hashtags, I was laughing on the floor in my closet one evening and I haven’t done that in ages. Feels good to be back to blogging!

Little J lost his first tooth on Friday and what a project this was. I will sit down and tell you all about it soon, it might turn into quite a novel! That kid I tell you, one in a million…
Since he started first grade and is in school for hours I have had a lot of alone time and I am really baffled by how little is on my mind. I used to think that I don’t get any thoughts to myself since I was always with Julian but it turns out my mind is preoccupied with the most irrelevant stuff ever that serves no purpose whatsoever but to keep me busy. And before you ask, it’s not sex. I wish! It’s things like: I wonder what that seagull is thinking and if he can see my roots from up there, maybe I should make an appointment soon but I bet Leslie is fully booked, oh I loved her wedding photos, wish more brides would get married in the fall and how come I always get booked for summer weddings when the sun is strongest and the natural light sucks, oh let me check what time is the sunset so I can confirm the times for my Saturday photo session, wait wheres my phone? Oh, other pocket, don’t panic. Oh look, someone like my Facebook post. Oh, it’s Lola. I haven’t seen her since 8th grade. Now her hair looks great! Wait what she has three kids now? Must be why her hair is so full bodied. Speaking of full bodied, I haven’t eaten anything since breakfast…

In other news apparently summer bid it’s farewell and Pumpkin spice latte is back so I guess we just have to do this next week:


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