Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
Hmmm, Ken and I did NOT have an audience as we successfully (for once in our whole relationship) navigated the grocery store without spending $120 or arguing about what we can or cannot buy. Ken + food shopping = $120 a week with more cookies, chips, soda and ice cream than meals. While I can manage 7 meals, a few snacks, 7 lunches, soda, and all necessities for about $50 to $60. IF this had happened, I wouldn't have found it heart warming that an older couple stopped us to say that we were so cute to watch, because THEY still had not mastered grocery shopping together. Plus, we would NEVER play rock-paper-scissor to find out which bank account the food came out of. I WON!!!!
What kind of wife is overjoyed to be away for a week on business while her husband tries to quit smoking? NOT ME ok ok..YES.....ME....ME.....He is is pure evil when trying to do this and I seem to be far more supportive from 300 miles away. As I told him, I'll love him no matter what, but he is much more likable from this distance right now.
I did NOT buy the cutest summer top at Walmart yesterday, nope NOT ME, because I am a loyal Target shopper and have a laundry list of reasons why I don't go to Walmart ( 30 people in line and only three checkout lanes open......the fact that they low ball there distributors in order to have low low prices..........dirty store........parents who allow their children to run and scream as they are Wild things....... So, all I can say is there "might" be a small chink in my anti-Walmart campaign. That George stuff is kind of cute! What can I say....we received a Walmart gift card for a wedding gift and it was about to expire soon.
I did NOT get so caught up in baby fever that I began a wish list at babies'R'us. Nope, NOT ME. Not preggers yet, but its all in God's hands. But, shhhhhh........... under my rules, Ken and I are not telling any one until we are pregnant and beyond that early miscarriage zone. But, not like I'm telling any one really. You guys are more like observers of my internal thoughts, really.
So what have you NOT done this week?

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This wonderful form of self theropy was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
So here I am again MANY Mondays after my last post. And boy have I done and NOT done a heck of a lot. So here are just a few:
I would NEVER have an indoor water fight with Ken, which would NEVER have started with my smart mouth (Who me? I'm quiet and demure!) and Ken did NOT have the nerve to throw a dirty sock at my head. IF that all had happened the Big Dog wouldn't have gotten upset enough to try bringing us a toy to "make sure" we were just play fighting and we wouldn't have had water all over the hardwood, carpet, bed, stairs, each other, and the bathroom walls. Besides, as adults we would never laugh about it until our sides hurt all the way through clean up.
What kind of gardener would have more weeds than veggies in her garden and then have to spend a whole Saturday "fixing" the problem? NOT ME
I am NOT still surprised at the way God has been working to help my dreams come true. Nope..........business cards and marketing martials, two fabulous caterers, and two more weddings to plan did NOT simply fall into my lap without my having to do much of anything.
What kind of wife bakes fresh blueberry muffins for her hubby and then eats all of a 24 muffin batch in a matter of a week's time? NOT ME I would NEVER do that since blueberry is his favorite.
We did NOT join a bowling league where I of course am carrying our whole team into first place with my 100 average Ken is bowling 300 games and I am jealous as all get out that when it comes to sports he rocks and I simply ok the ever supportive wife.
