miscellany monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1. Each week I think I'm going to spell miscellany wrong. I usually go back a few times to make sure that it's right.

2. I have a few have to's in life...I have to wash my hands after removing nail polish (because my mama said so) or if I have something sticky on my hands, I have to drink a Coke with pizza, I have to sleep with a fan, I have to have a glass of water on my nightstand before bed... Do you have any have to's?

3. My mother has always told me that cheaper is not always better. Cheaper sauce (I talked about that here), taco season, polish remover...not better. I will stick with Ragu, Old El Paso and Cutex.

4. This weekend when my cousin's best friend saw Caleb she said "Caleb, you are so cute" and Caleb said "I know." We might need to have a lesson on being humble.

5. When traveling through blogland you can always tell what foods are in season...first, there were tons of posts about strawberries (I even did one here), now I see that zucchini and cucumbers are ripe (check out what Darby posted here...and don't blame me if you also fall in love with her blog), and soon we'll be reading all about apples (and I can't wait for that!).

We sleep with a fan too...I think my mom taught me that! Plus it makes it easier for babies to sleep too:) I am so with you on the cheaper is not always better thing! Some times store brand stuff is okay, but alot of times I have to have the name brand!

Have to's: sleep with the fan, have air moving across my face in the car, have things put in rainbow order (don't ask).

Caleb made me laugh! Lil once looked at me and said,"Everybody loves me because I'm so cute!" Let me know how those humble lessons work for ya, we're still trying...

Carrie said...

I agree cheaper is not always the way to go...especially with toilet paper, I think ;)

Mmmm...I love the thought of apple season too! I hope I can get to some of that apple crisp THIS time! haha!

Caleb is cute...it's okay to be confident, haha! Emily used to say that too...I think she may still think she is, LOL!

Have a great week!

Rachel said...

Totally agree about the cheaper. Another one? Cereal. Target Cheerios are NOT the real Cheerios.

Love the Miscellany. (and I check the spelling several times as well.)

Have a great Monday!

Have to: sleep with a fan, have only Jif peanut butter on sandwiches, and have to have air moving across my face too while in a car.
Cheaper is definitely not better in all cases. Real Rice Krispies are vastly better than store brand, especially in rice krispie treats.
I think humility comes with age. At Caleb's age, he's simply repeating what everyone tells him--he's cute!

Sarah Ann said...

That's so cute that Caleb said "I know" - It may be a little proud, but what if he's just being honest? ;)
And I always am trying to convince my husband that cheaper is not always better...

Joanna said...

I have a few have to's. I have to sleep with a fan on high, no matter what time of year it is...and nope cheaper is def not always better. There are several things I have issues with, oh and salsa is def one of those.

My parents have to sleep with a fan too. I agree...cheaper is not always better. I have to buy Oscar Mayer Beef hot dogs and Kraft singles cheese...hubs request. Also it has to be Doritos...no substitutes will do.
I can't wait to read about apples and pumpkins either.

Liz @ Sugarplum Creations said...

LOL about being humble! :) I, too, have to sleep with water by my bed. I just have to. My mom cannot sleep without a fan, and she passed that right on down to me ;)

Great thoughts this week. I love what Caleb said, he sounds like such a cute kiddo.
I totally agree about the cheaper is not always better, I usually buy the walmart brand of everything but I will not go cheap on soda, lunchmeat, taco seasoning or popcorn.
Have a fabulous day!

DORCAS said...

Ha! Funny about Caleb's response! Loved your randomness.

I have to blay a little Bejweled every night before I go to sleep. It relaxes me! I have to check my alarm clock 2 or 3 times to make sure it's set every night. I have to have my popcorn every night as my snack.

I refuse to buy cheap toilet paper. Nuff said.

Have a great week!

Krissy said...

Ha! I have to have coke with pizza too :)

I love Caleb's response! Out of the mouths of babes...

Caleb is beautiful. I have to have water with me at all times. I do read Darby, but I have wondered if I need to quit. I end up being jealous of her perfect life. Remember when we were in small group together and I would always talk about being envious of people..well, I still haven't conquered that one!
