Not Me Monday!


I did not make my family drive 1 hour and 15 minutes out of town so that I could go see the campsite where my troop will be visiting next weekend. I did not do that because that would make me a totally control freak to need to see where I am going before I get there!

I did not take a camera with me to the newly opened Target just so that I would have pictures to use on my blog. What blogger in her right mind would blog about her love of a STORE?? Not me.

I did not discover that taking pictures in Tar-jay would totally embarrass my teenager and then turn the post about my love for Tar-jay into how to embarrass your teenager! Oh no, that would totally irratate my teen and I would never do such a thing!

I did not let my teenager stand in the bathroom yelling for a towel for 10 minutes because I was totally annoyed and too lazy to get off the couch. That would make a sometimes tired and cranky mom looked bad and I would never want that!

I did not take the entire day off from my computer on Saturday to spend part of the day watching the girls soccer games and then the rest of the day hanging with horses at the ranch. No, not me.....that would have been way too much fun.

I was not proud of how my teen played in her soccer game! No not me, that would make me a bragging parent and I am totally above all of that.

I didn't get totally bummed when I realized that Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs came to town without calling me. No, not me......I'm no stalker!

Great Not Me's.... I sooo "did not" bring my camera to Target either, just so I could take a picture of the new cart escalator.

I don't think I'd ever move either.....where you live sounds perfect, and really, you'll never find better weather. :)

Loved this edition of "not me Monday"!

I do not wish that they would build a Tar-Jay closer to my house so that I could be a crazy picture taking lady. I have one nearby, but I have to fight way too much traffic to get there! Oh and I love me some Mike Rowe. That man is pure sexyness! Is that a word?

Shannon said...

WHAT?!??!??! Mike Rowe was in your town??!!?! And you didn't go stalk, er I mean see, him?!??!

Dude, I'm still trying to think of a dirty job that he could come do at my house... mmmm, how I love me some Mike Rowe.

Shanna said...

LOL I love these!

Miss Anne said...

A new TARGET is definately picture taking worthy... (and blog worthy)... it's kind of like a mini holiday in itself right??

glad i'm not the only one who thinks so!

:)

I have something for you on my blog!

christie said...

What a cute post. And you have horses???

Jo-Jo said...

My hubby would totally not have wanted to meet Mile Rowe either!

Jennifer said...

I had to go back and look for those Target pics! That is hilarious! I can't wait to embarass mine when they are teens! LOL

Liz said...

I love Target - that's too funny that you took your camera - does the new store have the fun plastic shopping carts? (the new store here has those)

How dare Mike Rowe not call you - if he ever comes here I'll yell at him (b/c you know he better call me!!)

Thanks for the tip about cooking pics - whenever I try to take a pic of what I am making it just looks vile!!

Pam said...

It's a good thing you didn't do any of those things! I never find ways to embarrass my teens either... that would just be wrong!!

I DIDN'T decide to read NOT ME MONDAY posts instead of deal with my messy house... nope that would be irresponsible... NOT ME!!

This is SUCH a fun little feature. Too funny! The things we moms do--if only the kids understood that the only ones we're embarrassing is ourselves!

Mamarazzi said...

I love this NO Not me concept. It reminds me of when I was a kid, I always said that.

Marla @ Stolen Bon Bons said...

I am still cracking up over the target trip!

Enjoy your award you deserve it!

Elaine said...

Very cute, I love Tar-Jay too...

Sugar Mommy said...

Just wanted to say "thanks" for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! You are one of the first outside my personal blogger friends to do so! :)

Your list is hilarious! Especially the "Tar-jay" ones...the ones that didn't happen. :)
