Yeah, no...

So I'm just getting back into the whole blogity thing and theres just sooooooo much to do. One thing I want to do is give my blogs link list a catchy name, so I want to run a few of them by you, and you guys can help me decide!! One that I thought of was "Lovely Ladies that I Like to Look at" ...... hmmmm, I'm not sure if that really captures the essence of what I'm going for. Or what about "Wonderful Women Who I Peep"?? Yeah, again , not really feeling it... What about "L A's Looksee List"??? Wow, this is hader than I thought...I really stink at the whole name thing, once when I was pregnant I wanted to name our baby after a dog we had just lost... I mentioned it to the fam, the older three looked like they had just swallowed pipeing hot chocolate and lil P ran, screaming from the room, "clementineeee,whyyyy did you have to go, I misss you so much"... In hindsight I guess maybe that wasn't such a good idea, but I loved that name, it just seemed to me at the time like it had been wasted. Another time when I was pg with my twins I wanted to name them Rajeena and Rajina (strong I)My husband was fine with it until over heard me telling his mom on the phone, "it sounds like a female body part" he yelled at me as he is wrestling the phone away from me... Huhhhh I guess it did. I also stink at remembering names and Im always wanting to refer to people by their first and middle names, which is very difficult when you can't remember them, so I just call everyone their first name and then Marie as their middle name. Some just smile and go about their buisness, some unfortunately try and get me to remember their middle names, I dont even attempt to, I know my short commings, so after awhile they just realize that its futile and move on...If you were my friend I would lovingly refer to you as _____- marie too. I'm also horrible about correcting someone who calls me by the wrong name. The longer it go's on the more and more afraid I become. We all know that once you get past like the 1st, mayyyybe the 2nd time, its just impossibe to tell them, unless its close to your name like Lisa, or Leslie, but if its say Mary, I'd rather just answer to it. Once big A overheard a lady say to me" Marcy can you please show this lady where the adult classes are " and I just plain got up and escorted her to the class, then later that lady introduced me to her entire family and any passers by, I just plain left the church.... Also, if I've know you for awhile and I forget your first name,instead of asking I'll just refer to you as "hey girl" , or sugar, doll, ect... And most of the time I get away with it, except for when someone I know walks up and I'm obligated to intruduce the two I will just say to the one I know," Oh kelly, this...... and then I will act like I have a fone call or that someone has called my name and off I go...But I would'nt ever do that to you. Ok, back to my list... What about "friends whom I'm friends with becuase we blog and I really like their blog or they like mine so we are friends"? Hmm, that ones not bad.. Ok, I'm fresh out of ideas, so any help would be truly appreaciated.. Well, Im gonnna go check out your blogs that I like to look at as I peep because we are friends... Hope your all having a great weekend!! L A

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Thanks my girls are little stinkers but keep me laughing!

I love the name of your blog right now - I used to be a HUGE Days fan but then realized a few months how stupid some of the stories are so I stopped watching it at nap time and now watch Little House on the Prairie! Stop by again anytime!

Debbie said...

I also like your current name - I'm not a fan of that soap but "These are the days of our lives......" so I like it. I've added you to my list of blogs I read soooo "I'll be back"! Have a great weekend!

Leslie said...

You are so funny. I am glad you are back blogging again :) I'm Leslie D'Ann....but you can call me Lisa Marie if you want - I answer to about anything too. But I do correct people when they get my kids names wrong - hmmm, wonder why I care more about that then my own name.

And I struggle with names too. We were debating names on the way to the hospital to have Paige. We still didn't have a boy name picked out - thankfully we didn't end up needing it!

ali said...

Nicole said...

I love this post!
I'm sure you'll think of a good name.

Shanda said...

I tried to think of a couple of names to offer up...I really did...but all that I could come up with was: "Girlfriends Worth Knowing" Don't worry, I won't be offended if you don't use it! :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Glad my "prayer story" blessed you!

Sweet Blessings,
Shanda "Marie" (not really, but I won't mind!)

Hey,

This is Robyn Marie..........LOL
I love the name of your blog right now, and I'm sure if you want to change it, it should have Marie in it somewhere.
I Love you Leah.

Several people call me Lisa Marie (and that's not my name)!

The problem with calling your blog list "Lovely ladies" or "wonderful women" is that you might want to add a guy to your list someday! "Matt, Liz, and Madeline" is written by a guy, and it's one of my favorite blogs. Very heartfelt (although not the greatest language).

Thanks for stopping by and showing love! I'm ok, my husband is out of town and I miss him. I know it sounds high school, but he's my life. I am useless without him. And I haven't been able to blog about it (cause you never know who the stalkers are, LOL!). Luckily, he's on his way home as we speak!

OK, random stranger, sorry to completely unleash on you! Hope to see you again soon!

Jennifer said...

I'm no good at picking names for stuff (except kids...LOL!) But I'm glad you stopped by my blog..I don't know how you found me, but I'm glad you did, because when I clicked on your blog and so McCain I knew you were a keeper!! I'm shocked that no one talks about the election on here...because frankly..it is sooo scary to me for Obama to win! I think all Christians should see it that way as well and I'm scared..not for me, but for those who don't believe or have God in their lives, because I have a gut feeling that this world is about to get ugly!!! Email me if you want to chat about it sometime, NO ONE wants to bring it up on their blogs!!! Take care and God bless...
my email is jls_wss2003 at yahoo dot com

Love, Jennifer

Caitlin said...

Hahaha! Your blog cracks me up. I am terrible about correcting people when they say my name wrong. There is a whole side of my family who, for some strange reason, call me Katie, even though I have NEVER EVER EVER gone by that. So apparently my parents are bad at correcting people too....

feather k said...

My name is rarely said correctly by people I just meet...for a couple times...The middle name I always use for girls is Sue and for boys James...go figure...thanks for stopping by and feel free to come back anytime!

JanaBanana said...

Hi :) Its nice to meet you. I hope Im added to your list when you do decide a clever name.

Bre said...

Thanks for popping by my blog. http://chantillygrace.blogspot.com/

I totally enjoyed reading yours - hilarious, cheery and upbeat ...... but I'm glad you didn't name your twins Rajeena and Rajina LOL
I really like the name already. It also reminds of the song by Keith Urban "These Are The Days To Remember"

......great to see another christian lady !

Cheers,
Bre

Thank you so much for stopping by, your blog is lovely!
Maria... easy name to remember...

Kameron said...

So what do you do if their first name is Marie?? :o) Sorry, had to play the devil's advocate just a little. Glad your husband put his foot down with the RajIna name, he was sooo right and the poor girl would have been the butt (no pun intended) of jokes her whole life.
