MSM


Some days we decide to stay in our pajamas and watch SuperWhy and Dinosaur Train.
Some days we run too fast, yawn too much, and eat left-over tomato soup for lunch.
But some days, we get brave for no good reason.
We believe that we can do that thing, even if it involves an empty bobbin.

I'm feeling kind of Superwomany now. Be warned.

Okay. You don't love Money Shot Monday. I get it. Maybe it's the name? All I can say is that it came to me in the shower, and I've learned to never doubt shower wisdom. So the bad news is, MSM is sticking around, and here's why: I like it. I strangely liked knowing that today was Monday so I needed to track down my goodness and look it square in the mug. I enjoyed exercising my ability to be succinct. (And am ever thankful there are 6 more days in the week...)

But there's more! (insert infomercial voice)

Starting next week, I'm linking up, pups. My first-ever link-up. (I still can't bring myself to say "linky".) (told ya)

So be ready. You've got 6 days to prepare thine hearts. Fancy cameras not required, because it's not about the photo. Just find that sweet spot and prepare to share.

I think it might be fun.

    1. You MUST be in the shower at this exact moment! That's definitely shower wisdom.

  2. Ooh, fun (and much needed). I did 1000 gifts on Mondays until I reached 1000 and then I quit posting gifts regularly (feeling guilty admitting that -sorry Ann Voskamp). Maybe MSM is just what I need to get my gratitude up and running again.

    1. YES! Gratitude. That's exactly the point.

      (Also, I can't answer for AV, but I get the feeling that she's not the grudge-holding type.)

    2. I don't know Ann either but I know with a name like hers, full of grace, she would join in too!

    1. You're having trouble because I'm involved. (sigh)

      A Money Shot is the one single shot that captures the essence of your day. Maybe it's a really pretty photo or maybe it's a crappy one but it connects you with something awesome. No matter. It's one moment in time where you stopped to notice and capture.

      (Also, have you ever heard someone say, "That's so money?" No? Well, it's old, strange slang meaning that it's awesome. So there's a bit of that mixed in, too.(I really enjoy alliteration.))

      And now we're all even more confused.

      :)

  8. I love MSM and I have to tell you that I so dig your sense of humour. You crack me up. ;)

  9. I love your MSM. I think you've given me an idea for those vintage sheets in my closet that were my grandmother's and I can't part with for anything in the world.

  10. ooh! Are you making a bunting? someone referred to the square one in my kitchen the other day as a "shaman" garland. Oh brother! As for "linkies," they baffle me. I may need a tutorial.

  11. Love your non-"linky" linky idea. And can I just say, that even at 38 with a home-ec class under my belt (years ago), I still find that my sewing machine is one of the most intimidating pieces of equipment?! Something about that bobbin winding makes me scratch my head and wonder how something so complicated was ever invented for common use, because I feel the need for an engineering degree just to operate the darn thing. But I did make pillow covers recently, and it felt really good. :)

  12. You never cease to amaze me and personally like the "money" shot and you!

  13. I love MSM, too. You know I can't party after dark, so does it need to be a shot from Monday? Can it be Money Shot Sunday delivered on Monday?

    I also have no idea how to link-up (and am so relieved we're not linky-ing!) but I'm sure you'll tutor us because you're just that money, baby, and you don't even know it.

  14. The bunting is from a kit that I won a while back in a giveaway. All I had to do was pin and stitch!

    You can find kits and other cool stuff here:

    (As you can see, it takes very little to make me feel Superwomany.)

  15. what I do love MSM, really I love anything you put up on this here blog, it's where I come when I'm feeling down, just caught up and pinned/saved everything you recommended from your weekend :)

  16. Wtf?

    I DO LOVE MSM and I'm being honest!

    Keep on bringing it!

    I'm also currently an at home nurse and part time physical therapist for Brad. Very. Tired.

    I've also eaten WAY too much sugar in the past day and red velvet cupcakes.

    The more you know...

    xxoo

  17. I'm confused. There are folks out there who don't like your money shots?! Insanity. Do they have something against mango?

    What makes me grin is the fact that not only are you not stopping MSM, you are inviting others to join on in. And join I shall.

  22. My mom is an avid reader, but does not know how to comment... She has scoured an embarrassing number of grocery stores in the area looking for those muffins but to no avail. She would like to know where you found them and if you bought all of the inventory!

    1. Ha! I bought them at Meijer (it's a Midwestern place...) They were hiding on an endcap in the frozen food section. ??? Good luck!

  23. i had a brilliant amazing idea today in the bathtub. it was so amazing that i sent out a text from the bathtub to four different people just because i was so excited that i couldn't keep it to myself.

  24. Ha! No, NEVER doubt the Shower Wisdom!

    It just seems to wash down the drain and I can rarely take it out into the world with me!

    Is it too late to link up for this Monday's MSM? I've got 14 minutes left...
