So What Wednesdays....


Shannon has been doing a weekly segment of so what Wednesday's for the past few weeks and I thought i would join in the fun!

So what......

  • if every morning when i get in the car i hope to turn to a radio station in hopes of hearing Christmas Carols [typically 93.3 in Columbus goes to 24/7 Xmas carols as of November 1st- apparently not this year!]
  • if I keep 2 stations on my programed radio stations year round because they play 24/7 christmas music one and half months out of the year ... i just avoid pressing their preset buttons the other ten and a half months
  • if I was trying to make mashed potatoes last night [luckily for tonight's dinner] by boiling the entire potato whole - luckily Justin came up and asked why i didn't cut them up, and i said the recipe didn't call for it - so what if i re-read the recipe and it did call for me to cut up the potatoes...
  • if this isn't the first time that i have ruined mashed potatoes in my lifetime - the first time it looked more like potato cereal than soup... a may have added a little too much milk!
  • if i stocked up/bought a ton of salt and lime popcorn yesterday at the grocery... it's normally $3.49 a box - it was on sale for $1.99 and if you bought 10 participating items in the sale you $5 off your total purchase - which brought each box of popcorn down to $1.49

  • if I found this post thru this blog and during the same trip to the grocery store bought a box of popcorn and a can of wasabi peas - delish!
  • if i'm already looking forward to next week, when my friend Courtney is coming over with her daughter Skylar for dinner on Monday, I get to see my friend Traci to help her build a diaper cake on Tuesday night, and I get to see my adorable Goddaughter and her family Thursday night!
  • if i'm excited to get uVerse cable - not for the mere fact that I will be saving $35 a month on my cable and internet but for the perks that also came with it! $100 visa gift card AND a $75 iTunes card... better believe that i will be buying some christmas songs off iTunes!

What are your thoughts today? Head on over to Shannon's blog and link up!

Okay, so I didn't make it to the grocery store last night... but tonight for sure! I'm on a mission to find salt & lime popcorn!! And I too can NOT wait for Christmas music to start up! Last night "This Christmas" by Chris Brown came on itunes and I DID NOT shuffle through! :-D I think I'm going to wait until November 15th to move the Christmas playlist onto the iPod. Love it!

I can't wait for Christmas Music to start playing! LOVE IT!! (Just minus one song - ahem - Mariah Carey!)

I may have to join in on this blog hop/so what thing!!! Thanks!

I'm very intrigued by this lime popcorn. I usually go for the salty and sweet....but this could be good. I'll have to looke for it!

New follower by the way....and fellow Buckeye. :)

Caroline said...

I love Christmas music! It's the best. And I am going to try this popcorn. It sounds amazing! And don't make mashed potatoes, just buy the premade kind. That's what I do. The real thing sounds too hard!

Miss Chelsea said...

Ok well uh I'm gonna have to track down some lime popcorn now that I'm craving something I've never even tasted. Thanks a lot!

Tiffany said...

Oh my gosh, I am SO with you on the Christmas carol thing! I LOVE, love Christmas music. I listened to Josh Groban's rendition of Little Drummer boy about 2 months ago just because I needed it. Hope your stations get on the ball soon! :)

Lol I totally do stuff like that with the potatoes. I cooked mine for like an hour once and when I went to check on them all the potatoes had exploded and I was left with starchy water.

Mama Dew said...

You know I am hitting up Kroger Friday and I may just buy 10 of those for the $5 off! AMEN!

Lauren said...

That is a lot of popcorn lady!! :) I wish we could get uVerse - how most of Atlanta can't get uVerse, yet AT&T is based here is beyond me!

OMMYGOSH I love 93.3!!!! I stream it online every single day! I've been waiting for those christmas tunes, too - i almost emailed them about it this morning! LOL... Glad i'm not alone!!!

Brittany said...

SALT AND LIME POPCORN?! I think I'm in love!!! Never had it but going to go out and buy some!

Steph S. said...

OH MY GOSH! 93.3 switched over to Christmas music at 8am this morning... I was listening! The first song was "most wonderful time of the year" and i instantly thought of you, girlfriend! WOOHOOO!!!!

I cant even imagine what salt and lime popcorn tastes like?

You have me addicted to the salt & lime popcorn - thanks! :)
