Miscellany Monday

I have decided to jump in and join Carissa in Miscellany Monday.



1. As many of you know, our house is on the market, and we have been having tons of showings which is great, but I am running out of things to do during the hour we have to be out of the house. Usually we go to the park but last time it was pouring rain, so me and Bella went to a store to kill some time. Too bad killing time cost me $100 in unnecessary items.

2.I think I have a disease. I swear every time I eat a super unhealthy meal, followed by a dessert that probably contains 2000 calories, I lose weight. Ever since I had my daughter my body seems to be working backwards. I lost 4lbs this weekend. Don't hate me - remember I probably have a disease. I bet if I ate nothing but salad I'd gain 10lbs.

3. I am obsessed with vacuuming. I hated it when I lived with my parents and now I just have to vacuum. Like everyday. I LOVE having a clean house. It makes me feel so much better.

4. My husband discovered a British sit com a few months ago, and now he's got me hooked too! It's called The IT Crowd. Hilarious. Watch it.

5. I heard the song Kokomo by the Beach Boys a while ago and I felt like I was in kindergarten again. It was my all time favorite song. That's saying a lot for a 5 year old.
Pin It!

Hi Stephanie! Nice to meet you :-) Thanks for stopping by Windy Poplars to say hello today.~ I know what you mean about eating badly and loosing weight - I always expect to come back from vacation 5 lbs heavier, but that is rarely the case. But everyday living and I gain? What's up with that??! I like to vacuum a lot too (not necessarily the activity, but the result). It brings me peace to see clean floors.- Look forward to getting to know you more! ~Kristin from Windy Poplars

Omgoddness...Kindergarten!! I was in Junior High when I heard that song..I.feel.old.

Jill said...

Kindergarten - for real??? I feel old... And, I do think I'm gonna have to dislike you a little for losing weight when you eat too much. That would be my dream. Sigh...

Mandy said...

Great post~ and I'm totally jealous of your 'disease'. my husband has the same one: he could live on ding-dongs and fruity pebbles and lose weight, and I eat salad and hardly lose at all. I can also totally identify with your vacuuming obsession- I clean every day and can't stand it otherwise. Have a great day!

I lost quite a bit of weight after Averie, too. Unfortunately, it came from places I couldn't afford to lose it, ha ha!

Alexis said...

It cracks me up that you mentioned the song Kokomo because when I was in, maybe the 1st grade, I heard that song for the first time while I was up in my room. I "taped" it and totally wore it out. You just brought back a really old memory.

Rachel said...

Aruba, Jamaica, OOOooo I want to take ya...

Love Kokomo. Love it. Brings back memories.

And, lol, I love to vacuum as well. It's kind of a mini obsession. I like seeing all the stuff that I pick up that's no longer on my floor.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Yours is wonderful....!

Love your randoms! So crazy that you can lose weight eating junk food... hopefully the same will happen to me when little boy joins the world :)
