After a brief potluck vacation, I am glad to announce…
to all 12 of you…
that POTLUCK is back and better than ever*.
*this claim is unsubstantiated.
Whoo hoo for the pro-potluck agenda.
What brought readers to the Nirvana this week?
–“any which wall”
–“adult silly bandz”
Really? You need ADULT themed silly bands?
Let’s find out who won comment of the week!
It was really fun to read all the reasons why y’all didn’t want to go to the store. There were some REALLY compelling reasons! Here was my favorite:
“OMG, I so don't want to go to the store, but REALLY have to because we are down to less than half a roll of toilet paper. And I have 4 children. I have specifically told the boys they aren't allowed to poop today. Or at least not at home.
I will go tomorrow, I promise!!!!” — Desiree
Oh how I may have said this exact same thing in the past…
Desiree is the lucky recipient of a PRIZE!
*insert prize music here*
*Announcer voice* Desiree has won a six pack of Little Debbie Petites courtesy of our unofficial potluck sponsor Little Debbie Snackcakes! AND the good news is that they will be delivered to her door so that she won’t have to leave the house.
And now for a little feature I will be calling, “Lessons Holly Learned the Hard Way so You Don’t Have To“.
See the cup above?
It is the $12.99 refillable cup I purchased at Six Flags over Texas last week with the justification that I would take it back all season for $1 refills.
To rid it of its sticky-ness I put it in the dishwasher to prepare for a return trip to the park.
It now won’t stand on its own, it has a liquid capacity of about 1/2 the intended volume and it is pretty much ruined.
I am going to be SO excited to purchase ANOTHER 13 buck cup on my next visit.
And now for another installment of Holly gives Advice to Companies who say ‘who is Holly?’
I believe that ANY business could benefit from a drive thru.
I would be much more likely to go to a business if it had one.
I know you are thinking…of course! My local bakery should add one or if only that grocery store on the corner would deliver milk to my car, but I am talking even BIGGER.
Shoes! Accessories! Home goods! Pet Stores! Hardware Stores! Electronics!
Yep. I expect to be contacted by a national thinktank within the hour...
It is time for The Word I am Working into Conversation this Week…
My boys are killing me with the lawyering and the debating and the moving the line a little here and making it squiggly there.
This week I am putting the kibash on MAYBE and just declaring a simple…NO!
I might say it nice and not in capital letters.
Alrighty! If you are playing alo ng with your own POTLUCK this week, please link below. (If you are playing something else, please don’t link below.)
Let’s see What is in Holly’s Fruit Bowl!
The copy of 101 Optimal Life Foods I received on Friday when hanging out with the author, David Grotto, Lea Anne, Dwan and the California Strawberries. I realize that having ACTUAL fruit in the fruit bowl would be better…but it is a step in the right direction.
May your Monday be dishwasher-safe.
