Random Tuesday Thoughts


Random 1. This year I joined in Domestic Dork's Valentine's Day Blog Exchange. Today I received my lovely gift from my swap partner, Christina at Consider the Coffee. All I told her was that my favorite color is purple. She had no idea that I sort of collect things with the word "Love" on them. See, John calls me Love almost exclusively. He buys me things that say "Love", like earrings, home decor, etc., and when we see something that says "love", we joke that it has my name on it. So this necklace is totally perfect! I wish I had a better picture than this cell phone shot, but it will have to do for now.

Isn't it beautiful?? I LOVE it!
You should check out Christina's Etsy shop, Coffee and Cream, and see all of her beautiful creations.

Random 2. My best friend had weight loss surgery yesterday, and is doing well. I'm so happy, proud of her, and excited for her!

Random 3. John butt-dialed me this morning. He was getting in the car to take the kids to school and sort of sat on his phone. I couldn't understand much of what was said, but I did hear him singing "Your Body is Underpants" to the tune of John Mayer's "Your Body is a Wonderland". Awesome - I have my own personal Weird Al!

Random 4. I have discovered the most delicious snack - if you like dill pickles. Dill Pickle Sunflower Seeds! They are yummmmy!

Random 5. Also? Butter.Pecan.CAKE. I made this for our church's Superbowl Party and Oh Em Gee. Deliciousness!

Random 6. The Bachelor? What's your take? I was surprised that Ali chose to leave. Does anyone know what her job was? I never heard, and I figured it must be something good, to choose that over staying on the show. I'm sure she wouldn't have left to go back and waitress at the IHOP...right? Anyhoo, now I'm Team Tenley. BUT - my bets are on him actually choosing Vienna.

Random 7. Did you notice that a real life person linked up with my Weekend WrapUp post yesterday? I was so excited!!

Random 8. I'm leaving you with a random Facebook conversation involving me, my niece, and a couple of friends:

Me: My phone hasnt let me get on fb since last night - can you say withdrawal?? glad to be back!
Friend 1: welcome back to the mobile web!
Friend 2: we need an INTERVENTION....that is definitely NOT good
Me: What? im not addicted, i can quit anytime i want! *twitch*
My niece Heather: Cyndy, I am here because I love you and I miss my aunt... I remember when you used to call me a stupid brat... now all you do is tweet and play on FB and blog. If you do not accept this help we are offering I will no longer respond to your texts! :-D Whadda say?
Me: My name is Cyndy. C.Y.N.D.Y. wait, this is a documentary, right??
Niece: your addiction has affected me negatively in the following ways...


We crack ourselves up! Have a Happy Tuesday, folks.........and visit The Unmom for more Random Tuesday Thoughts!

I get a lot of butt dials where I work as a 911 dispatcher. Funny what people say when they think no one is listening! Happy RTT.

The whole time I was watching the Bachelor and that Ali section, I just kept feeling as if she was faking the crying. I used to think she was into him, but it sorta felt forced last night. I could be totally wrong.

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

The necklace is pretty.

I have my own personal weird al also. hahaha

hey my phone wouldn't let me get on facebook the other day either....what was up with that?

Momo Fali said...

That is so funny! My husband butt dials me all the time, but I never had a name for it!

Tara R. said...

Your necklace is lovely! Sounds like it was the perfect fit.

I don't think I've ever been butt-dialed. The mishmashed lyrics are hilarious!

Mama Wheaton said...

THe whole butt dialing sing a long sonds like something my DH would do.... too funny.

The ManDork and I call each other Love too! So when I was pregnant we called our baby "Lovey." :)

Thanks for participating in the exchange!

Keely said...

Underwear. Heh.

CaJoh said...

Stopping by from the Un-Mom…

I must admit that I call myself a "Radio Head" since I am always taking songs from the radio and adding my own lyrics to them.

When you mentioned Dill Pickles, all I could think of was pickles and bologna.

Thank you for your randomness,

shortmama said...

The singing butt dialer---hilarious!

Shelly said...

Pickle sunflower seed? Eww.

I don't do the Bachelor.

Love the necklace.

Happy RTT

You're so lucky! I never get butt dialed.

I have a friend who used to butt dial me all the time. Once or twice is cute but when it happens half a dozen times in less than an hour...it gets annoying! :-) Enjoyed your post.

Just Breathe said...

Love the necklace. It is really beautiful. Glad your friend is doing well. Butter Pecan is my favorite ice cream, I bet the cake was awesome. Don't watch the Bachelor.
