Not Me! Monday - No Gravy for You!

Being Brutally Honest, and Living to Tell About It

I really don't think I need to go any further, do I? Did you NOT read my post on how to NOT make gravy? It was embarassing enough to last an entire century. Or two. Go read it.

If you really need more not me's, then I'll throw you a couple bones:

I did NOT spend a kajillion dollars on new Christmas lights for my house today. I also did NOT really REALLY enjoy them, because they are all LED and did you know you can string FORTY THREE strands together instead of SIX?? DID YOU KNOW THAT?? Well, I did not either. And, I guess I don't have to say how (not) excited that I am.

I also did NOT skip church today. We are home this long SIX day weekend having a stay-cation and I would never intentionally miss church because we are just so danged wiped out from NOT making gravy. Hurry up and read it already - you can leave your comments over there too... no need to waste anyone elses time seeing how humiliated I can be for any longer than necessary.

For more public humiliation, head on over to MckMama's place.

Alexis, I personally LOVE your recipe for gravy and I think I may have to write your recipe down for NEXT year! ROFL!!!

I hope your week, back to normal, is AMAZING!

I think I need to buy a christmas tree today for downstairs

Melanie said...

Oooh.. I love stay-cations.

Love your new look!

Katie said...

You are one funny chick!

When I said I used the jar method I really ment I use a jar to mix the gravy not that go buy the stuff in a jar....just thought I would clear that up.


Livy said...

Hahahaha @ Katie's comment about mixing the gravy 'in' a jar, not buying a jar of gravy.


Misty said...

what good is a holiday without humiliating memories???

Miriam said...

Okay. Gravy in a jar and we still can't have any? Sheesh.

Also, the skipping church thing? I have NEVER. It was NOT ME either.

Stay-cations are the best! Happy Monday!

It wasn't me that walked out of a fine eating establishment over the weekend and, trying to engage my husband into a belching contest, proceeded to unleash the most ungodly sound ever from my digestive tract... not knowing there was someone sitting in the car next to ours.
That's all I have to say on my latest humiliation.
