My First Miscellany Monday

I’m a random kind of girl, just ask my husband, so I’ve decided to link up to my very first miscellany monday.  For those of you who don’t know what it is, it’s pure random, for your reading and viewing pleasure.

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

So here goes…

(1) My husband and I had figurines of ourselves on our wedding day made in Taiwan.  I’ll show you the pictures later, and yes, we’re THAT vain.

(2) The element pictured below was found in my backyard.  We don’t know what it is.  I think there was a meteor shower back in 1970 when our house was built and this piece just happened to land in our backyard.

(3) I eat two gummy vitamins each day because that is the suggested dosage.  One time I ate four.

(4) I’ve been looking all over for a nude pair of pumps. Because they are such a neutral color, I feel like they would match with ANYTHING, browns, blacks, whites, colors… I mean your skin matches with all of these colors right?

I’ve narrowed my search down to these two shoes…. but I have a dilemma.  The Target Mossimo Virginia Pumps (left) are only $29.99 but I can’t find them anywhere in size 7.5.  The Christian Louboutin Simple 70s Leather Pump (right) I can find in my size, but they are $595.  Here’s where you come in…. if you can find me the Target shoes in size 7.5 and are willing to ship them to me, I will pay you back and throw in a little surprise present for you.  Or if anyone can hand over $595, that would be wonderful as well.  I’m not kidding about the Target shoes.

(5) My husband has had his Toyota Corolla for 15 years.  It’s in good condition and only has approximately 100,000 miles on it.  We’re ready to sell it, I’m taking bids now, let’s start it at $25,000, hey we’ve got bills to pay too!

(6) I miss my adorable nephew Evan, A LOT.  He lives in Los Angeles, but he has some country in him as well, he must get it from me.  Pictures taken by my amazing photographer sister-in-law!

(7) In 2010, I’ve spent 105 days in Missouri, 18 days in Ohio, 8 days in Minnesota, 5 days in California, 4 days in Michigan and 4 days in Nevada.  I’m currently in Cleveland, Ohio and will be in Columbus, Ohio later this week for my brother-in-law’s wedding!  By next Monday, make that 25 days in Ohio.  Why do I keep finding myself in Ohio?  And why is there a pizza joint on every block?  Didn’t know Ohio was known for their pizza.

(8) I tend to use electronic sarcasm a lot, just so you know.

Hope you have a wonderful week, we have a holiday weekend to look forward to, yay!

    That rock is cool, I’d get it to home if I’d find it in my backyard 🙂

    I prefer the second ones (shoes) but I don’t think I’d pay that much for a pair of shoes! I don’t even like the nude color.

    I wish I could count so many days outside my city! You’re so lucky for that. I LOVE to travel but I don’t have the chance to do it frecuently.

    The element almost looks like a big gummy 🙂
    I totally agree with the notion that nude pumps would go with everything, although I can’t imagine spending that much on them! Target is on my list for this week though to get different baby sandals, so I will take a look around….

    I have to say I truly enjoyed this post! You are one funny gal!!!

  4. May 24, 2010 / 7:29 am

    lol! love your randomness girl! i can’t believe your hubby has had his car for 15 years and it only has 100,000 miles on it? that’s great! also, i think i need to read your number #7 again. i got a little confused or maybe i’m just slow. : )

  5. May 24, 2010 / 7:34 am

    Lovely boy’s pics!! Funny post!

  6. May 24, 2010 / 8:08 am

    Sandy, LOVED reading this.
    1) Those shoes are killer…will look out for you;)
    2 Evan is scrumptious!
    3) I grew up in Ohio! Lots of family still lives there. I am a huge OSU Buckeye fan.

    Happy monday!

  7. May 24, 2010 / 8:32 am

    you are so funny – you know i’m a big fan of sarcasm :)! and yes, for some reason ohio has TONS of pizza joints. just don’t ask me why!

  8. May 24, 2010 / 9:04 am

    Love the random post! Your nephew is super cute! I’ve been thinking about some nude pumps lately as well, they really do match everything and if you get a tone close enough to your skin they make your legs look longer! Who doesn’t want that, right?

  9. May 24, 2010 / 9:06 am

    Omg your nephew is so freakin’ cute!
    That meteor thing is too cool!
    And I eat gummy vitamins too!

  10. May 24, 2010 / 9:26 am

    Hey girl hey!!! I have been looking for a decent priced pair of nude heels for the longesttttt time! I was just in Target and didn’t see those! AH! I’ll have to go back this week and look…and if I find your size I will let you know 🙂

    And hanging out in Ohio a lot lately huh??? Cmon you you LOVE it! Come join me and Anna (In honor of design)! Go Buckeyes!!!


  11. May 24, 2010 / 10:20 am

    I’ve been drooling over those Loubs forever too! Your nephew is beyond cute!

  12. May 24, 2010 / 10:38 am

    funny. Can’t wait to see the figurines of you guys…

  13. May 24, 2010 / 12:49 pm

    i love your miscellany mondays!! so funny and interesting! those gummy vits are good. i got them for mia, but catch myself stealing some! will be on the lookout for those nude pumps for you! Evan is the cutest lil guy ever. I agree that your SIL is an amazing photographer! 😉

  14. May 24, 2010 / 12:59 pm

    i am seeing this miscellaneous monday everywhere! it looks fun. ^_^

    your nephew is SO CUTE. ohmygosh, i would miss him a lot too! and i looove the gummy vitamin bears!! i forget, is the suggested dose for kids? they’re just so yummy, we need an excuse to eat more!

    haha, yes. and about taking tripod pictures…so much more dorkier. but, ok, it’s kind of more fun?! hahaha.

    ok, i loveee your blog. <3

  15. May 24, 2010 / 12:59 pm

    I love my gummy vitamins. 😀

  16. May 24, 2010 / 1:08 pm

    what a fun post to read 🙂 i’m planning to visit Target today, and I will venture into the shoe dept. for you.

  17. May 24, 2010 / 1:25 pm

    LOL to the gummy vitamins. You do realize the recommended dosage is for a kid right? You should be eating about 4-6 a day I believe (but check the label to make sure!) I used to eat about 6 a day… and I went through those puppies too fast.

    I’ll look out for the shoes for you. I’ll be back in MI in 2 weeks! Yay for Target!

    Ugh Ohio. Especially since we’re Michiganders at heart. 🙂

  18. May 24, 2010 / 1:58 pm

    Glad to know I’m not the only one who eats yummy gummy vitamins.

    Love Minnesota. That’s cause I live there.

    Go for the Target shoes.

    And,lol, I love electronic sarcasm as well.

    Found you via the Miscellany Monday link up.

    finding joy

  19. May 24, 2010 / 2:17 pm

    this made me grin and giggle!!! i love your miscellany. thanks so much for joining in!! it’s so great to have you!

    evan is too adorable – i’d miss him too! that corolla sounds like a miracle car – are you sure you want to get rid of it’s reliability?! i think 25k is a great deal. ; )

    that boulder in your back yard is super cool. i think that makes you famous or something!

    you are presh! happy monday!

  20. May 24, 2010 / 6:58 pm

    hmmm…nude shoes? yes please!

  21. May 24, 2010 / 7:22 pm

    awww~ evan misses you even more!!! he’s a country mouse at heart just like you, hehe. omg, i feel so bad/sad~ there were a pair of nude pumps that fell in love with. i loved them so much i wanted to get you a pair but it was the last one. =( you can wear them whenever you’re here. that’s the prob with living so far away~ we can’t share our closets!! i love this post and your randomness! we had an awesome time with mom for her birthday~ wish you could’ve been here too. miss you!! =)

  23. May 24, 2010 / 8:27 pm

    sandy, you are SO cute! love the new series. so fun. love the pics of your nephew. i’ll def check for your shoes the next time i’m at target!!

  25. May 24, 2010 / 8:53 pm

    i loved this post. i would’ve paid $595 for Marv’s car and you could’ve gotten a pair of shoes out of the deal. and i don’t know why u keep coming back to ohio, but i’m grateful for it, so i don’t question it =)

  26. May 24, 2010 / 9:45 pm

    NUDE PUMPS! I need a pair, too! You just reminded me of what to add to my birthday wishlist!!

    Lol about the gummy bears. Tums are similar in that way… They are SO yummy, I could eat 5.

  27. May 25, 2010 / 12:35 am

    Ahhh Sandy! Way to make me laugh!!!!!!!

  28. May 25, 2010 / 12:39 am

    I love this! If Target were open this late I’d head over and buy some gummy vitamins and look for your shoes..and a pair for me,too! Cute! 🙂

  29. May 25, 2010 / 3:23 am

    that “element” is too funny!! can’t believe you found that in your backyard! its totally from outer space! haha!!

    You are too cute. My 3 years old son makes sure my husband and I will take our gummy vitamins each day. If I see those pumps at target…will definitely let you know.

  31. May 25, 2010 / 5:35 pm

    What a wonderful miscellany monday post 🙂 I love the randomness! I can relate to the traveling part. I love to travel and I love to visit different places 🙂 I hope you are enjoying your trips.

    Have an amazing week,

    Oh and btw. 谢谢 for leaving the wonderful comment on my blog.

  32. May 26, 2010 / 8:52 am

    ha, i’ve been wondering about those gummy vitamins too actually. and…i’ve also been looking for nude pumps, but haven’t found the right ones. 1 thing: i once got patent leather pumps at target and they TORE UP my feet, no amount of dr. scholl’s padding or anything could help, so hopefully if you get them they will be more flexible 😉

  33. May 26, 2010 / 11:30 pm

    Brilliant idea for a Monday! I can’t wait to see the figurines. And sometimes, I buy gummy vitamins and completely ignore the proper dosage (they’re just so good).

    ..I have crush for nude shoes as well know – those Lanvin making me crazy..I want those heels soooo much but they are so expensive ..why they do that to us : )

    hope you having a great summer : )
