"Not Me Monday"

Good morning Monday!! That is not usually what most of you are thinking on this gosh-awful Monday morning,'s Monday :( But hopefully my new "Not Me Monday" posts will help make this dreadful day much better. I cannot take credit for this idea. I found it on an awesome blog called The idea was a creative and lighthearted way of clearing the air that none of us are perfect by confessing (sarcastically) all of the things we DID NOT do this past week. So here it goes..."Being brutally honest and living to tell about it"...

This week, I DID NOT finally bake the Pillsbury Cinnamon Twists that have been staring me down in the fridge for a month. I definitely DID NOT eat all but 3 of the 8 warm, ooey-gooey, cinnamon twists all by myself throughout the day. Nope, not me.

I DID NOT, absolutely, in no way, use a Christmas themed dish rag with a snowman on it for Avery's burp cloth. Why would I do that when I have nearly 10-12 burp cloths with her initials all over it. They definitely were NOT all dirty when I DIDN'T use that Christmas dish rag. No way!

While changing Avery on the changing table, she DID NOT spew regurgitated breastmilk back into my hair or on my face. There's NO WAY she could have projected it that far. Nope, that's because that DID NOT happen.

Sunday night, I DID NOT leave Avery sleeping in her car seat, placed on the kitchen table, for 2 hours because I didn't want to wake her up. Not me!

This week, I DID NOT accept a dinner invitation three nights in a row just to skip mine and Michael's P90X workouts. That would be absurd to eat dinner out instead of torturing my body working out. No, that did not happen.

And finally, I DID NOT travel unprepared to a friend's house with a 'ready-to-go' bottle of formula and a nipple that didn't fit. No way! I NEVER would just ask the friend's mother to hold the nipple in place so tightly that her knuckles would turn white while feeding Avery. Avery DID NOT get half the bottle of formula all over her cute Baby Gap onesie. And for sure, in NO WAY possible, did I forget to bring another outfit. NOT ME!

PHEWWW!! I feel much better that I now told you all of the thing that I DID NOT do this week. On another note, here are some pictures from a shower we all went to for some good friends getting married. Enjoy!

Family picture!
Rob Tate and Leslie Bruner...soon to be newlyweds.  They love Avery!
The beautiful Miss Avery Anna.

Funniest picture of the night. This was the beginning of a total meltdown!


  1. Paige! Too funny!! I saw your comment on my post and just had to come read that we both have our "under-the-table" not so official copies of p90x =)
    And I have NEVER used a santa dish rag to burp libbi...or let her sit in her carseat (soaked in sweat) just to keep on napping! =)nope, not me!

  2. I really enjoyed your Not Me Monday post! I found your blog from Mckmama's blog hop. I about fell out of my chair when your pic popped up! Guess what? I am from G-ville and I know your mama from working with her in the past and we are friends on FB. My son, Brad, was in Jacob's class. Small world! I have 2 blogs. Check them out sometime. or Happy blogging! Kathy
