The Slacker's Sunday Six

My friends mock me because when I give reasons for why I am or am not doing something, I list them as A, B, and C. But, it's perfectly normal to me to give your explanations in an outline form. And, as one of my English teachers always told me, when you're making an outline, you must always have a B to go with your A, and better yet, a C.

So, here goes ...

Reasons Why I'm Using the Word "Slacker" in This Post:
A. It's not Sunday.
B. I don't post on Sunday.
C. I really like this idea and want to use it despite it's criteria for being done on Sunday

And, the creator (my friend, Jodie), gave me permission to do so. I think she's started something here. I simply love her and her blog always makes my heart feel all warm and fuzzy.

There's really no rhyme or reason to this. It's just 6 things. Any 6 things you love. That's it. Easy. I like easy because A. I don't have to think much about it, B. It saves me time., and C. Who likes doing things the hard way anyway?


On we go ...

one
Deep soul-searching.
And, I'm not too happy with what I'm finding in there.

two
Hats.
Not just any hat. These little French berets are my favorite. I so wish I could wear them without looking like I just stepped out of the shower and left my cap on (because I always wear a shower cap in the shower ... not). I want to wear this beret as I sit outside a French bistro and eat pastries in France, of course ... not really. I'm not a fan of France, so maybe, Canada.

three
Fall.
The apples. The pumpkins. The weather. Come on, fall!

four
Pearls.
Nothing classier.

five
Open Cardigans.
The best piece of clothing invented for anyone who wants to hide anything (a.k.a. baby bellies that are there after 10 years, wider hips, muffin tops, saddle bags, etc.). I have a few of these lovelies ... black, cream, multi-colored, which reminds me that I need another one.

six
Newly sharpened pencils.
So many possibilities.

This is something Jodie does every week and as soon as she figures out how to put Mr. Linky up, the sooner you all can participate. Fun and easy. Go on over. I'm sure she has an awesome post for today too. She never fails me.

I wish I looked good in hats. They are such a classy accessory.

My go-to-outfit involves a cream cardigan. I adore it!

YOU are my favorite thing for saying all those nice things about me. You got me smilin' all over my face! :)

I'm glad you did this - it was so much fun to read. Fun, fun, fun!

I'm totally with you on the cardigans and the pencils. My word at the pencils... isn't a fresh pencil just intoxicating? And the smell of the shavings! Don't even get me started... I wish someone would make THAT candle scent. I'd be all over it.

Last thing - I guess if you wanted, you could call yours the Monday six, since it at least rhymes with Sunday. :)
