silly phrases

Since marrying Chris, it has been brought to my attention that I frequently mis-say phrases.

For instance, instead of saying "Holy Cannoli!"
I say "Holy Commoli!"

Instead of saying "Nip it in the bud,"
I say "Nip it in the butt!"

Instead of saying "John Jacob Jingle-Heimer Schmidt"
I say "John Jacob Jingle-Heimer Smith."

Instead of saying "See ya! Wouldn't wanna be ya!"
I say "See ya! Don't wanna be ya!"

"Instead of saying "Absence makes the heart grow fonder, "
I say "Distance makes the heart grow fonder."

And my favorite that has no proper phrase "De-stress and de-gress."
Chris just informed me yesterday that de-gress is not in fact a word.

Why did it take 23+ years for this to be brought to my attention?
I'm not sure.

In other thoughts, can you believe there are just 7 days to Thanksgiving and 37 to Christmas? Amazing! However, this means that Chris and I need a photo to send out in Christmas cards, like the photo from last year taken on the hill of our backyard (photo above). Which also means that we need to do something clever and quick. Real quick!

What do you do for Christmas cards?

p.s. I picked out my daughter's name today. But I won't tell you because then you might steal it. (It's that good!)

My favorite thing that people say wrong is, "What comes around, goes around," when it's actually, "What goes around, comes around."

I tried to explain this to a co-worker years back, after hearing her say it wrong for the millionth time, and she still had no clue how I was saying it differently than she was.

I pretty sure I say it the wrong way too. There's another one to add to the list...

Devin does this a lot too! It's pretty grandpa always says, "people who say things only one way have no imagination!" :)This coming from a man who mispronounces everything!
