Six On Sunday, Version 14

1. Pockets Still Amazing!

2. PBJ.  Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are fantastic! I spent much of my childhood hating them, and I cannot figure out WHY because they are delicious.  We do have a bit of a disagreement at our house about the jelly part though. I am firmly Team Strawberry, while my husband is Team Grape. We served PBJs at my daughter’s birthday party over the weekend, and it was the adults elbowing each other to get at the tray instead of the kids! We used strawberry jam (Team Strawberry all the way!) and squishy white bread. Oh, and we used cookie cutters to make cute shapes and get rid of the crusts.  The sandwiches were declared to be as good as the Uncrustable frozen sandwiches. (Uncrustables are peanut butter and jelly sandwiches without the crust that are frozen. To me, this is the BIGGEST RACKET EVER as they are expensive. I am so mad I did not think to do it and trademark it.)

3. Overzealous Ushers. At church today, the ushers sat us in a row that was already crowded. Now, the Catholics like their personal space. No one ever wants to move over, so people tend to move as little as they can possibly get away with.  The lady already in our pew was not thrilled at the sight of a family.  None of us were thrilled when another family of four was escorted to our pew. We ended up standing sideways because that was they only way we would fit. It was worse than Christmas Mass, and really challenged me to have kind, Christian thoughts about said usher.

4. Home grown Tomatoes. Are amazing. My sweet husband does his best to keep me in tomatoes all summer long. He staggers the plants, so we have them as early as possible in the spring and as late into the fall. However, this year a combination of extreme heat, no rain, and a busy flying schedule have made it impossible for him to keep up with demand. I ate my last one this evening, and I am very upset about it!

5. Great girlfriends. I have the best. Everyone needs girlfriends that are honest about everything, from career advice to advising on highlights.  When the chips are down, you need to have people in your life who will be brutally honest. I mean, who else will tell that your highlights are, in fact, brassy? Most ‘friends’ acquaintances are too polite and too sensitive to your feelings to give the brutal honesty we all need.

6. Trader Joe’s Hummus. It’s the best, the freshest, and the most addictive. Hands down.


  1. Found you through the Coast to Coast directory! Looking forward to following a fellow Georgian!

  2. The hummus recommendation makes me wish we had Trader Joes here.

  4. We are getting a Trader Joe’s in Texas soon and I CANNOT WAIT. I’ve never tried their hummus though. I don’t think I ate hummus back when I actually lived next a Trader Joe’s! I’ll be sure to try some (I am kind of in love with the hummus from Central Market, so if it’s comparable and less expensive it will be a huge WIN for me).

  6. Well, I didn’t get the pocket thing at first. I was looking for an actual accessory thing, like a necklace or something. Took awhile before I realized, ‘Oh! Pockets!’ And then I realized yet another way of how men and women live diffrent lives. Everytime women wear dresses and stuff, they don’t get pockets — where would you put your stuff? Weird. Glad you found some dresses with pockets. :-) PS Got here on the wednesday wandering blog thing at PMP!

  9. I am so jealous of your homegrown tomatoes. I have been saying I was going to plant tomatoes for about…oh…20 years. But alas, I never seem to make it happen. And honestly, pretty much everything from Trader Joe’s is excellent.


  1. [...] Birthday Candles (or the Parental FAIL continues). If you remember, I lost the birthday candles for Emma’s birthday cake last week at her party.  I found the candle (it was so cute- a [...]
