Nicole's : slang

Favorite expressions...hmmm...I have to admit, I love a good cliche , if there is such a thing, but I have a tendency to pick up slang and use it far after its trendiness has gone. Want an example? How about phrases like 'coolio' or 'cool beans'? Even I am inwardly rolling my eyes when these slip out, but I swear I can't help it! It's just typical of me. I am always ahead,or more like behind, in these matters. A lot of my favorite catch phrases come from my friend Jaime, much to my hubby's chagrin, because then our kids usually pick it up too. Oopsie doodle! There I go again! Well, at least it's better than swearing...

LOL at your journalling - I can relate. Have recently traded my "cool beans" for 'cool bananas'!

Great clean LO with striking accents. Nice job Nicole!
