Monday Listicles

Confession time: I am unreasonably grumpy.

To be honest I totally did it to myself. Last night I binged out on Criminal Minds and after three back to back episodes of gruesome murder and awful people that I hope don’t exist in real life I attempted to go to sleep waaaaaay past my bedtime. Obviously that didn’t come easily so today I am tired and kinda annoyed with everything and everyone except chocolate and cute puppies. The good news is that I am now convinced I am very wise not to be running much this year because most murders and abductions on TV happen to women jogging around. Have you ever seen a dreadful attack on a chubby middle-aged lady sipping tea in her comfy chair with her 5 cats reading a book under a cozy blanket? Exactly! All I am missing is cats for protection…

Not sure why but I have been thinking about my grandpa a lot lately and missing him terribly, so I decided to write my listicles about him and the special times we shared together. Wonder what your moments are?

Next week:


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



1. Fishing by the lake in silence for hours.

2. Playing chess.

3. Sitting in his lap, “helping” him with his cross puzzles.

4. Hiking in the woods.

5. Picking chestnuts.

6. Biking around town with him.

7. Sledding on the high slopes and him pulling me all the way up the hill.

8. Dancing into New Years 1983 in our apartment living room.

9. Walking our dog Kir.

10. Saying good bye to him the last time and telling him everything’s going to be alright. And yet he past away straight after.

Hey there, how are you?

That is probably the first thing I ask anyone I ever bump into. And I actually look forward to hearing all about how you are. What is your go to one liner?

Anyways leave me a comment telling me how you are and how your week went? In the mean time let me tell you all about mine. We had a ball to attend this weekend and I wore an amazing gown and felt like million dollars and my husband was so handsome and lovely and fun that I fell in love with him all over again by early Sunday morning. Amazing how good a night out does for the soul. I am determined to brush my hair more often from now on…

So let’s talk about things we say this week and next week:


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



1. Awesome
not sure if LEGO movie is to blame but I catch myself saying awesome a few times a day. Seriously how awesome are random, everyday things?

2. Fantastic
as if awesome wasn’t annoying and over the top enough…

3. Chop Chop
and hurry up and hustle and anything else that I hope will get my 1st grader to school on time.

4. Oh no
cause I am always forgetting something.

5. Mmm-hm
sometimes I just tune people out and clearly I am not great at covering it up.

6. Sorry
I am a notorious apologizer. If somebody tells me I need to stop saying sorry my response will be: Sorry!

7. Oh bother.
let’s face it most things tend to be a big bother sometimes.

8. Banana
not sure why but whenever my son asks me to guess something I will always try banana first. Not that banana is ever an answer…

9. Rubbish
if you ever met me you would know that word is so me.

10. OK
it’s the most universal thing to say. And my go to answer for everything. Mostly meaning I have no idea what you just asked me but OK.

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:

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!
