Words I Simply Can NOT Spell

I pride myself on spelling.  I mean, I'm not like "spelling bee" material, but I hardly ever have to use spell check at work or here on the ol' blog.  I always made high A's in spelling.  I even judged a spelling bee once {thankyouverymuch!}!  

Now, my daughter?  That's a different story!  She gets her spelling skills from her daddy and for the record, he has none.  We can work all week on spelling words, she'll make an A on the Friday test, and won't be able to spell the same words come the following Monday!  WHA!?

So here are some words that I am known to {ahem!} commonly misspelled {but I would like to point out that they are spelled correctly here}:

definitely - I NEVER get this one right!







calendar - Another word/thorn in my side!


vacuum - Sometimes I just stick 2 c's and 2 u's in it and move on!

So what do you do when you can't spell a word?  I'll be honest.  I google it.  Or if my illegally blonde self remembers, I'll click on the spell check button.

What words do you have a hard time remembering to spell?  How would you grade yourself in the subject of Spelling?

I'm linking up with these blogs today: Home of Malones & Penny's Passion.

          Thoughts for Thursday                                            X-tremely V


  1. Hi! Stopping by from Thinking Out Loud Thursday! I definitely struggle with DEFINITELY! Every single time! I use spell check like crazy because I am one who corrects grammar and spelling in my head ALL the time! Glad to know I'm in good company! Have a great day!

    1. Hi Stephanie! I think we have a mutual acquaintance? Another word I should have added to the list! Ha! I just love your sister, Jennifer! I follow her on IG and she is a hoot! Thanks for stopping by today and leaving a comment!

  2. Spelling comes naturally to me but sometimes I'll have to stop and think of "i before e" and "u always with a q" and double check my words but its all fun and games.

    Stopping by from the link up :)

  3. I thought about doing a post on this! But I can't really remember all my spelling hardships until they pop up. I Google or if I'm typing somewhere where it'll do the red squiggly spell-check line, I wait for that, right click and choose the right option!

  4. Definitely! I never get it right...NEVER! And the kicker is I use the word quite a bit, you would think by now I would have it figured out ;)

  5. I used to be so good at spelling when we actually had to write things down! lol! Now that everthing is done on the computer I think I count on spellcheck or google to help me out way too often!

  6. Oh my goodness!! Love this post! I will never, ever, as long as I live be able to spell restaurant. I am not sure why, but I always get it wrong!! So glad I found you blog via Thinking Out Loud!

    1. Thanks so much Katie! I have to think about the word restaurant, too. But for me, it's like spelling February and Wednesday. I have to sound it out in my head so I won't forget the silent letters! Hope you're having a great weekend!

  7. Must be the accountant in us! Spelling is NOT my strong suit either and I am always having to google just to be sure. My biggest pet peeve though is that I know how to spell color and favorite here in Texas and autocorrect is always changing to read colour and favourite...STOP!

    1. Eeewwww! That would SO tick me off, too!! I think they spell those words like that in England/Europe. It's just not right!!
