Our Five Ring Circus: Not Me! Monday

Not Me! Monday

Another Monday has come around, and today I am on the edge of my seat, trying to pass time, as I wait for the news that my best friend has delivered her second baby! A Not Me! Monday, hosted by MckMama, seems like the perfect way to pass the time!

I did not finish Angels & Demons in 48 hours. I do not think it is one of THE best books I have ever read!

I did not steal fistfuls of cotton candy out of the bags that my mom bought for the kids. I did not justify it by thinking that it was good for their health that I was eating most of it. Hehehe.

I am not madly in love with doing laundry. A post about that is not coming soon.

I was not beyond thrilled to win Carebear's 100th post giveaway! I never win anything, so it was a pleasant surprise!

I did not let Lexie wear her "rina" (ballerina) nightgown for 48 hours straight this week, just because she loved it so much.

Speaking of clothes, my fashion conscious son did not dress himself in khaki shorts, a button down dress shirt, and a tie, and tell me it was because he wanted to be handsome.

My hubby did not drive crazy speeds to get us to The Ordination of Deacons on time, on Saturday. I did not find myself near tears several times during said mass, just from the absolute beauty of it. My hubby did not fear that he would burst into flames if he shook the bishop's hand. You're not that bad, honey!

Dylan did not hit my face with a baseball today, leaving a bruise. The force behind his hits is NOT incredible. I'm not secretly thinking he could probably hit better than some of the players on the Pittsburgh Pirates. Ha!

I was not ECSTATIC when the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup. I am not thrilled that we were the Super Bowl Champs and the Stanley Cup winners this year! Go PITTSBURGH!

Oh-and I am not incredibly anxious about Baby Braden's arrival!!! Come on, baby! I want to meet you!

  1. love doing laundry??! now this is crazy talk...I will definitely be staying tuned for this one!!!!!

  2. Well, I will certainly be back to learn your secret of how to love doing laundry. And I am anxious for my new little one to get here too - I simply cannot wait to meet her. And as for the Penguins - well I guess we can be friends until the season starts. We rooted for the Pens to win because they beat the Capitals (who knocked out or Rangers) but we are true blue Rangers fans. :)

  3. That is too cute about looking handsome! I hope you have a wonderful week!

  7. I think Dylan does a fine job of looking handsome, but it sounds like he's got style, too. Bonus!

    Also, laundry is the only chore I actually look forward to doing. Enjoy!

    and Happy Monday!

  8. First time i've been to your blog, love the name lexie (my middle girl is alexandra too shortened to lexie and we call her lexie loo too!) Loved the not me, i'd never eath the cotton candy (candy floss here in Scotland) too.

  9. It's now after 1:30 in the afternoon here, and Reagan is still in her favorite nightgown. She's already told me that she isn't taking it off at all today... little does she know we have family coming over for dinner so she WILL be changing clothes in the very near future!

    And do I need to call a doctor for you? Are you running a fever? Are you having uncontrollable fits? Do you see spots or feel itchy all over? Seriously, something has to be wrong with you for you to be IN LOVE with doing laundry! Please, somebody call 911!

  10. Angels and Demons is an awesome book! Did you see the movie ... it was good, but nothing close to the book!

    Can't wait to read the laundry post!
