Blog Steal

I completely appropriated this art journaling blog post from my friend Kathryn Antyr's blog. Kathryn wrote about "Things I Say" and listed expressions she frequently uses. Here are some of mine: Go to her blog (link above) to see what Kathryn says. Below are some things I say:

What you do actually does define you.

Awesome. Really.

Sometimes no action IS an action.

Oh. My. God.



Let's chat

Write a new script for your life.


And here is some Brooklyn graffiti with something someone else had to say:

This is a great idea and very thought provoking. Love that graffiti too. penny

I say, "Seriously" quite a lot. A lot of things like Awesome, Good Job, etc. to the kids at school.

I say to my children, "Dude, not a dude. I am your mother."

They have been getting out of the habit.

I work around a lot of African American children, I say "off the chain," which means misbehavin'

I caught myself saying that and laughed b/c it is funny how people's slang sneak into your vocabulary.

Interesting to think of things that we say often. I say "Aye Chihuahua" and lately George and I have been saying "Well for heaven)s sake" (in a tone like your mother might have used if she said it to you) and the word "gagutz"=don't think that's spelled right, but it means cabbage head and we have lots of made up words that we use all the time.

I say dude all the time as well, especially to certain friends. I find I have certain phrases I say more around certain people and that I pick up on their phrases quite often!
Also, I wanted to say thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!

Good idea...I'm still ruminating over what my childhood memories are from your last post, tho. (Reading Secret Garden while sitting on our backyard swingset stands out.) I hear myself saying "I'm tellin' ya" a lot...I worked with a lady decades ago who said that and it must have stuck. xoxo

Oh The Secret Garden -- what a lovely thought. It was an enchanted world, wasn't it? And just being young, carefree and on a swing? that's a winner right there.

It turns out I say "that's all" quite a lot. I didn't realize it until Beau started ending most of his sentences with "that's all." Wondering where he picked it up, I started paying attention to how I formed my sentences and realized I was the original "that's all" person. Funny the things we learn about ourselves from others.

5o true!

Thauna said...

I say "seriously?" all the time. And "oh man"....the grandbaby has picked up both. "Oh Man" was probably one of her first phrases.

Holli said...

I love this!! I say:


Oh. MY. God.

That's so cool

I love that!!

BE in your life.

You didn't list my favorite saying of yours, Teri!

"Don't feed the dragon and it will go away."
