Puffed Up Listicles

It's Monday and time to join Stasha over at The Good Life for Monday Listicles! Each week Stasha gives us a theme for our lists. This week, our topic is 10 Things You're Proud Of. 

Now, every single one of you know that I am proud of the lovelies and of being their mom. So, I'm not going to go that way for this listicle. 

Next week's list will be 10 Fantastic Smells.

All you have to do to join in with this week's list is click on the button!

TEN Things I'm Darn Proud Of (Other Than The Lovelies):
  1. I'm proud that I hold the household record in Wii Bowling. Thaaat's riiight. I'm still beating all the men in the family. Ha!
  2. I'm proud of my ridiculously HUGE (and somewhat obnoxious) competitive nature.
  3. I'm proud that I have never run around outside naked (this does not include the beach...or the mountains...or swimming). 
  4. I'm proud that I did not totally freak out when I saw the ghost called Slender man. Yep, I've seen him and so has Birdie. And he's a total creepster. DO NOT make the mistake I did and Google him or you'll be sleeping with your light on the rest of your lives too. Maybe this is 'delayed freak out'...LOL
  5. I'm proud of the fact that I totally avoid things that I'm afraid of--snakes, heights, horror movies, bad love stories...maybe, in lieu of #4, I should add Google to this list.
  6. I'm proud that I am a stubborn, opinionated, cynical (or, as I like to call it- being realistic) type personality. 
  7. I'm proud that I've never smacked the crap out of someone who doesn't stay inside the white lines when they park. Trust me, this is quite a restraint on my part. Ditto with bad drivers and women who stop in the middle of the aisle of any store that requires the use of a shopping cart to chat or look at something so that no one can get past them. 
  8. I'm embarrassingly proud of the fact that I enjoy watching Karma at work. 
  9. I'm proud that I am skeptic. I question everything. I want PROOF. I'm not taking one person's word for it people. No how, no way. 
  10. I'm proud of the fact that I did, indeed, see Santa's sleigh flying through the sky when I was a kid no matter what my parents maintain.
See? I can make a 'proud of' list without putting the lovelies in the mix. Though I couldn't have done it without announcing the fact that I'm going to leave them out on purpose. Sheesh.

Ok, let's see your Puffed Up List!


  1. You win!! Haaa awesome list. I love it!

  2. I love this idea and love your list as well! I especially iike number 10!

  3. Pam you are hilarious! I love how you are, it reminds me of someone....oh wait, it's me! haha
    I am a true skeptic too, ask my hubby.

  4. You know what that did to us, Pam. So here is this great dilemma: do I Google Slender man or not? I WANT TO. but I won't, cuz I won't even watch 'What Lies Beneath,' even when Kevin's home - because at some point he will be gone overnight and then I would spend the whole night with visions of Slender man. So no takers there.

  5. haha this is great. You have seen the Slender Man??? How scary, I will have to tell the kids. He totally freaks them out too.
    It is true about sleeping with the light on too. They got so freaked out by him. I haven't seen him and I don't want too. I had to laugh at your grocery shopping, it is fast becoming a pet peeve. People just stand there and don't move. I can't figure it out.
    Have a great Monday!

  6. Ducky- Thanks! I figure we all need a being Monday and all. :)

    Betty- Thanks! You should definitely join in...except don't stop your lovely Monday flowers!

    Betty- Thanks! I know girl- we MUST be sistahs!

    Judy- Do. Not. Google. Slender. Man. Repeat: Do. NOT. Google. Slender. Man. Ok? :)

    Kim- He's terrible. I saw him about 22 or 23 years ago. Birdie just saw him a few months ago. I know, are they just being rude or are they truly that stupid?

  7. Love this list :) Had me smiling!

  8. Plum- Thanks! I had a good time with it! So glad it gave you a smile!

  9. Oh, my. I couldn't get past the title of your post without a guffaw. For some reason when I saw it - without reading on - I had such a different picture in my mind. It involved a painful affliction for gents. I know...cruel to laugh.

    However, I want to say that I so agree with you on number 7. Many's the time I wish I was driving a tank...I would not hesitate. I have seen folks actually drive sideways into a slot on purpose! Usually they are driving something that they value more than they value me and mine. If a car is skewed in the space no one bangs their doors on the beautiful vehicle. Tank. Yes.

  10. Stephanie- Hahaha! You're so funny! Wait, was that cruel? :) I park way out and far away from the store and STILL some jerk will come park beside me. Idiots.

  11. you are really nuts, do you know that?!!
    ha, it's brave of me to say that, having read #7! But, I'm with you on that, and even more so, those little old ladies who drive so slow, till they come to an orange light, then pedal to the metal and they fly through leaving me behind, wishing I drove a tank (lol Stephanie!).
    Oops, I got carried away there. Loved #10 too!I saw it too!

  12. I love number 3. That pretty much means you've never run around naked in your neighborhood... yay you. Bwahahahahahaha.

  13. Heather is the queen of Wii Bowling in our house too.

  14. Way to be puffy. Don't get me started on white line offenders. Or even worse, people that drive out of their spot through the other spot. Urggg


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
