The one with spelling and coconut oil and other such nonsense

There are no words in the English language to express my chagrin and distress over my spelling quandary on this post.  I knew that the word I was using was wrong. way wrong. and I just didn't care.  And it's not even an English word.  (I have no idea why that matters but I feel it does.)  I had frankly forgotten all about it until my firstborn tweeted me the correct word.  I'm trying not to notice her delight in "helping" me.  whatever.  My sincere apologies for not remembering that "wa-la" (hehe) is of course "voila!"  It's going to take me a few days or years to get over this one people.  I would appreciate your support as I likely mention it a few thousand times during the recovery process.

In other news, I am pleased and thrilled and happy to report that I had sweet potato fries for dinner last night.  It is a testament to how much I love me some SPF that I actually do all that chopping and hacking and sawing of the hardest vegetable in the universe, and that's all I'm going to say about that at this time because this is supposed to be a grateful-toned blog and I'm thinking that going on and on. and on. about such triviality would be decidedly un-grateful.

I can't even believe it's Friday again.  The speed with which life is passing by is beginning to creep me out just a little bit.

I purchased a Christmas present this week!  I do believe this could be a first for me.  I'm a Last-Minute Sally if there ever was one.  and there was.  because it was me

It's a Christmas shopping miracle for sure. 

I am out of coconut oil.  Who would have thought that I could get so hooked on something I'd never even heard of a year or so ago?  Thanks Meg!  Your coconut oil information changed my life.  In a completely superficial way, of course.  Anyhoo, it is some seriously yummy stuff.  And if I might add...sweet potato fries are much, much tastier with it than with boring olive oil.  Just so you know.

And finally, I have discovered I now have far more random posts than any other kind.  I have yet to decide exactly what this means.  I'm learning oh-so-much about myself as I go through this bloggyventure...A lot of it is kind've embarrassing and disturbing and vexing. 

(I just really wanted to work in the word vexing, and never fear... it's spelled correctly.  I checked :)

Happy Friday Y'all!

I love your random posts because they always make me giggle :) And I'm so glad I'm not the only one who loves coconut oil! :)

I personally believe that the value of a good giggle is grossly underrated these days, so I'm happy if my scatteredness is helpful :)

I'm not even kidding about the coconut oil love. I finally broke down the other day & put it in my oatmeal, and whaddya was great! (I know you've said you love it that way, but I have definite feelings about my oatmeal! I am curious to know how you use it in smoothies, though; that seems a little - out of place? I'm game for anything, though :)

Meg said...

It is kind of funny to put it in a smoothie because it solidifies in the cold :) But it adds a slight coconut flavor and random texture when you get a bite of it so we like it. I mainly started adding at as a healthy benefit and a way to get my family to eat more of it since it is so good for you :) We just throw in a couple of spoonfuls and chop it up with the fruit.
