Wednesday Hodgepodge!

Wednesday, January 8, 2014


Happy Wednesday Friends! I know its the first of the year but its time for another Wednesday Hodgepodge with Joyce from over at From This Side of the Pond ....this is always such a fun linkup.. join in anytime! Hope you enjoy


1. Every January 1st since 1976 Lake Superior University has published a list of words they'd like to see banished from the Queen's English.  Words may be banished due to misuse, overuse or just general uselessness (go here to read more about how the words were chosen).  Here are the words/phrases they'd like to see banished in 2014-

selfie, twerk/twerking, hashtag, Twittersphere, Mr. Mom, T-bone, ____on steroids, the suffixes-ageddon, and -pocalypse added to anything and everything, from the world of politics the words-intellectually/morally bankrupt and Obamacare, and from the world of sports the words-adversity and fan base

Which of these words/phrases would you most like to see banished from everyday speech and why? Is there a word not on the list you'd like to add?


I really don't care about any of those words. If I had to pick one I think morally bankrupt would be good to remove. WTF does that mean??? Your just a bad person because you don't have any morals. I sure wouldn't want to meet that person! 

2. What one unfinished project nags at you begging to be completed in this new year?


Its hard to narrow it down to one thing. I have a ton of unfinished blog projects and computer work to do.I am working on a kitchen organization series on my housewife youtube channel that I started before Christmas. I have 2 or 3 left to do and I hope to get them done by the end of January...fingers crossed!

3. When did you last have a bowl of soup? What kind? Homemade or from a can? What's your favorite soup?

I had a lot of soup when I had my dental surgery right before Christmas but not so much since. I was loving tomato basil.. potato.. and broccoli & cheese! Check out this delicious recipe for my crockpot broccoli and cheese soup if you want to make a really good winter dinner for your family.. I promise..the kids will even eat this soup! :)

4. Snowed in, snowed under, snow job...which one most applies to your life in recent days, figuratively speaking.

I would have to say snowed under. Since Christmas I have been playing catch up with everything.. including the bills and filing, housework, animal care, kid care, husband time, and I honestly feel defeated most days before I even really get started. I feel like I manage my time pretty well.. but I really think I need more hours in the day. 

5. What's the funniest movie you've ever seen, or at least one of the funniest?

I would say it would have to be the first couple Arthur movies. I am not talking about the one with Russell Brand. The first set of Arthur movies with Dudley Moore made me laugh and laugh.  And it still does. Another more recent movie The first Hangover gave me a TON of laughs!

Yep... I sure am. I am always finding bruises on myself that I have no idea where they came from then I remember the wall that got in the way or the door that popped up on me in the middle of the night. I am always tripping over the cats and dog.. kid toys, husbys shoes, and tripping over my own feet going up and down the stairs. Its never ending! 

7. Elvis Presley was born on Hodgepodge Day (January 8th) back in 1935.  Are you an Elvis fan?  What's your favorite Elvis tune? If that's too hard, which Elvis tune do you dislike the least?  Click here for a list of his songs.

No not a fan. I'm 38 and just didn't grow up with Elvis. I looked over the list and didn't see one song that I really knew so yea.. before my time! 

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I hope you all are staying warm and cozy on these very cold winter days. Its been really cold here with a low of 13 last night but we had a warm house and cozy comfy bedding that I am oh so grateful for. I am not a huge fan of winter but I have been staying in for the most part and making the most of my time indoors. However Super Cooper loves this kind of weather!


Happy Wednesday.. stay warm!
