@breadwinningmom suggested this weeks list – words that make you smile? Maybe it’s the way they sound or the meaning

Mommy…just hearing that words…I’m a mom after all those years and disappointments. I will always and forever cherish that word

decadent – knowing something feels, tastes, or smells decadent rocks. It could be chocolate, mac and cheese, stuffing, smell of pumpkin pie, a dark, rich color on a wall, or the feeling of a cozy and fluffy scarf.

employment – when you don’t have a job and you want one…this word means everything. It means you can survive, even if it’s paycheck to paycheck.

faith – without this I would be lost, while I choose what and how to be a good Catholic, I know God is there for me and guiding me through life. He is there for my son and helping us see the good things around us, even when times are tough.

supercalifragilisticexpialidocious – love this word…all those wonderful syllables…when teaching high school students to break words into syllables in order to read or spell this word is fun to use.

foncy f-on-cee a word I use when something is beyond fancy and exquisite.

DIVA – a word I use to describe a confident and beautiful woman who wants others to feel just as good as she does. I think the word DIVA has taken on a negative tone when used to compare singing sensations or actresses. It should be positive, should be used to describe the woman who exudes confidence not because of her looks, but because of how she treats others.

confidence – just having it is a wondrous and beautiful thing and can make your own world a better place…and hopefully pass it on to others.

pleasurable – this word is just so much fun to say…either fast, slow, or accentuating each syllable.

home – it’s more than just a building, a place, a house/apt…it’s a santcuary, hideaway, peace, relaxation from the world.

  1. How fun! I love “foncy”. I might have to use that one now!! And I don’t use “decadent” nearly enough. It’s a GREAT word! –Lisa

  2. Oh yeah…you cannot help but to feel happy when you say ‘supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ – that is such a smile-inducing word. I like the way ‘decadent’ sounds too.

    Happy Monday Listicles!

  3. OMG! I loved this post! You are so right though. I wonder if I did a post like this if I used the same words like 5 years from now to see if how I feel about the word has changed since the last time I wrote about it. My friend had the idea from pinterest to ask your kids a certain few questions at each birthday starting at like 3 to see how their answers change. Made me thing of that! I hope you have a wonderful week! Thanks so much for sharing this awesome post and linking up with the Mommy Monday hop. <3

    • I did that blog post for his 4th birthday and it was fun, but I do want to add it to a photo…gotta love pic monkey for that, right? So glad I did join up with you ladies, plan on joining up next Monday. Yeah, If I remember, I’d love to see if I like the same words.

  4. Excellent list! My kiddos never called me ‘mommy’ though, until they were older when they were being funny. I was Mama when they were little. Any shape or form it takes, it is a precious word!

    • yes, I agree and form of mom is golden. I actually wanted Dino to call me mama…something so cool about that. A guy can get away with Mama when he’s a teen, but not mommy.

Would love to read your thoughts
