The Fabulous Post

Hubs thinks I use the word "fabulous" too often.

Me, I like to think of it as being able to find the fabulous in the every day.

So, here we go...a sample of things I would call fabulous.

My hair used to be fabulous. It's obnoxiously thick and long. Before it got damaged all to hell with color, highlights, and a 400 degree flat iron every day, it was fabulous.

I'm on a mission to have fabulous hair again. It's going to involve scissors and my fabulous sil's fabulous skills.

Pink Truck wine is fabulous. It's cheap and pink and super yummy. I highly recommend it, unless you are a wine connoisseur, because then you might not agree with my assessment.

I make the most fabulous sweet potato casserole ever. But, it's not fabulous for my waistline. It's all the fabulous butter.

An early bedtime for my boys is a fabulous end to my night. If it's 7pm and one of them is still awake, that is NOT fabulous. Go to bed, little fabulous ones, it's past your bedtime.

Just Dance for the Wii is fabulous fun. Especially if you don't take yourself too seriously. If I ever find some friends down here who aren't motherbitches, I'm totally having a fabulous dance party.

Your responses when I write about motherbitches are fabulous. Probaby because you are all fabulous.

Hope in a Jar is the most fabulous moisturizer ever.

Hubs has told Monkey that he is not allowed to say "fabulous" as it is a word "for girls and for boys who want to be girls." I laugh fabulously hard when he says this and especially when Monkey whispers in my ear, "I still like that word, Mommy, it's fabulous!"

Had enough of my random fabulous-ness?

Now that I've pointed out my overuse of "fabulous," no fair pointing it out to me when I overuse it on here or on the comments that I make on your blogs- because you are fabulous!

In fact, feel free to post one of these fabulous sayings on your blog because I say that you are that fabulous.

And you too are fabulous! The fact that your son uses the word fabulous is fabulous and I am so checking out Pink Truck wine because it sounds fabulous!!!!

I over use the the italics option when i post. Someone once said in comments that maybe it's because I'm Italian and the italics is me talking with my hands on my blog. lol.

I also have been using the word gorgeous in comments but in ALL fairness- there was a lot of gorgeousness in blogland last month - what with all the gorgeousl Christmas decorations, gorgeously wrapped presents...

And I think you are fabulous too. You forgot the Grinch- "Somebody's looking FABulousssss".

Blogger Eternal Lizdom said...

Sometimes, I get tired of fabulous having so many syllables and I get lazy and just go with "fabu." "That's just so fabu!"

Like Danita, I am also addicted to exclamation points. And I love using dashes and dots to make my post read the way I am thinking...

Pink Truck Wine, huh? I'll have to try it! My issue is that I use way too much Italic on my blog, probably in real life too, but my husband just doesn't see it :)

While I can't say I use the wod fabulous a whole lot, I read this post and had Billy Crystal's voice reading every fabulous. So, pretty much I read this post with an accent. "Fab-yoo-luss".

What a fabulous post on such a fabulous blog! That's how I always end my SITS post. (Hope everyone has a fabulous day!) Every time I use the word fabulous my husband laughs at me and says that it's a word my son doesn't need to pick up because the boys at school will beat him up for wanting to be a girl... So funny that your husband thinks the same thing!

I'm a fabulous abuser also...its so much more fabulous than awesome...add in a sacrastic tint and Fabulous takes on a whole new meaning.

It is SO versatile!

Ok, this is a fabulous post! You use the word fabulous like I use the word awesome!

By the way, 7pm bedtimes are definitely fabulous... and my hubby tells our oldest that he can't say certain things too. Last night Camron came home saying, "Hey booooy!" (My sister babysat yesterday and she's always saying, "Heeey Giiiirl!" I'm sure he got it from her.)

Jonathan's favorite word is "awesome." I love that he says it. And just hearing him say something is awesome kind of makes me walk a little lighter than the moment before.

You are fabulous, Shell! Shoot me off that casserole recipe because I need to get in on that fabulousness. But I'm going to rule against you on the pink wine...I've tried...I can't do it anymore. I'm a red girl now. But I must say back in the day in college I thought nothing was more fabulous than my pink wine with the twist off top. Not so fab in the morning though.
