–Why do songs and commercials insist on having sirens?!? I mean my heart legit stops for a minute and I begin panicking immediately. It never fails. Then I am like….stupid song!!!

–I forgot to mention two weeks ago when we went to the Black Jacket Symphony concert, I was carded to make sure I was 21 to get in. Chris was all like, “Ummm why did they card her?” His dad was like “Because they think she is a kid.” YES!!!!!!!!!!

–Sometimes you gotta go off roading to avoid traffic. Or, at least that is what I did yesterday. I drove through a muddy/grassy median after realizing that I-59 was completely stopped. I felt like a bad-ass rebel, too! Take that traffic!!!!!

–Speaking of commuting, I will sacrifice my safety to spare an extra 10 minutes. You know that moment in your commute when you are driving around a super sketchy part and you hit the lock button on your doors and hope that no one walking the streets heard it? Yup, that is me every afternoon on my way home. BUT I get home TEN minutes earlier going that way. Ain’t nobody got time to be safe.

–The other day a co-worker asked me to witness a document. I haven’t signed my name to anything in…months? I had to pause and focus to sign my name correctly. Wow.

–I am way more excited than any 30 year old should be about Mario Kart 8 coming out. Chris and I have been counting down for months. MONTHS. We are probably going to go to the midnight release..and have Mario Kart party at our house that weekend. Let me know if you want to join!

Fair warning:

And now…some confessions in ecards:

    LOL “get well because your cough is disgusting”. True statement, e-card.

    I don’t ever get “dangerous” to shave time off my commute BUT I will be a complete jerk on purpose by cutting into a lane or taking a different offramp. Well, the different offramp is really just crafty on my part!

    !!!!! There is this Jason Aldean song out on the middle of the radio and in the middle of the song they have one siren. Scares me to death every stinkin’ time!

  • Reply Rachelle May 21, 2014 at 12:50 pm

    “Aint nobody got time to me safe” is the best line ever! In Houston, I’ll do anything to avoid traffic and get there sooner, so I feel ya on that one! haha

    About getting carded though – I was carded at the Dave Matthews Band concert last Friday, but I didn’t have my ID on me. It went from “how cute, they think I’m young” to “oh hell no, I’m 31, give me that glass of wine!” LOL

    Those siren commercials. I hate them so much. Isn’t that considered a traffic hazard or something?? Love all the ecards!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph May 21, 2014 at 1:07 pm

    I always do the subtle lock and pray no one heard it or saw the movement. Like I don’t want to make the bad people feel crappy or something. hahaha

    When I was a commuter I always took the ghetto way home, screw going around that shiz I want to sit on my couch and take my bra off!

  • Reply Girl Brooks May 21, 2014 at 1:21 pm

    I can’t stand it when songs have sirens in them! By far the worst decision that producer ever made.

    When Mario Kart 8 comes out.. It’s going to be a crazy weekend.. Sometimes it’s nice to be carded.. even when they think you are from the ABC board..

  • Reply Kateri Von Steal May 21, 2014 at 2:16 pm

    More so than the siren in songs/commercials.. WHAT ABOUT THE ONES THAT SOUND LIKE YOUR ENGINE BREAKING? OH MAN.. That one gets me SO SCARED!

    I’m 29… but, I look like I’m 18 still… This is very problematic when I have my son with me.. I get the.. WHAT DID YOU HAVE HIM WHEN YOU WERE 10 GLARESTARE!
    But, it is SO nice to be carded.. SO SO NICE.

    And I’m with you. I feel like I’m still in my young 20’s until I hang out with my younger friends.. and then… I just feel SUPER old.

    I love your confessions!
    Stop by and see mine:


    Have a wonderful week.

It is super embarrassing when it happens, but in theory I like the idea! Isn’t it great to look young lol! And my bf gets carded too. He’s 31. So weird!! Great post Nadine!!


  • Reply Krystal May 21, 2014 at 2:23 pm

    people younger than me look older than me alllll the time and yes its awesome! As for those wretched sirens on the radio, I legit almost pulled over on the freeway the other day thinking a police car needed to pass. So annoying.

  • Reply chelsea May 21, 2014 at 3:04 pm

    Sirens in songs…WHY. I have approximately three and a half heart attacks every time I drive because of this.

  • Reply Jules May 21, 2014 at 3:34 pm

    ummm YES to the music with the sirens!! WHO OKAYED THAT?!

    LOLed at the safety to save 10 minutes. I remember my dad and I used to get lost allll the time coming home from Yankee Stadium in the Bronx because he “knew a way” and there were drug dealers and car with no tires on them and my dad would just be like “act like you you belong” OK DAD. I’m a 10 year old white girl in the Bronx – I do not belong. Next time lets take the highway and avoid your “shortcuts” to get home.

  • Reply brittney May 21, 2014 at 3:44 pm

    bahahaha I will fuck you up in some mario kart TOO FUNNY! That game is the shit!!!!
    Hell yeah if I could find a quicker way home Id take it even if it meant swerving to miss hookers and crack needles aint nobody got time for 5:00 traffic!

  • Reply Lauren May 21, 2014 at 4:09 pm

    A radio station here has the siren in their morning traffic music and I violently hate it. It gets me every time! You ARE a badass for offroading – I’m always too scared!

  • Reply Kerry May 21, 2014 at 4:57 pm

    I thought the same thing about myself when I had walking pneumonia, coughing is gross and annoying. When I was younger there was this one ghetto I would also shortcut through but of course I checked to make sure it was locked because you would legit get car jacked.

    Yaaaas girl I fantasize about driving over the median but I’ve never had the guts to do it!

  • Reply brooke lyn May 21, 2014 at 5:12 pm

    why does every rap song start with sirens!

  • Reply Joey May 21, 2014 at 5:25 pm

    Yeah–I think I feel a lot younger than I am–and then I started taking a zumba class on campus full of 18 year olds. It was then I realized I’m totally ancient haha!!! I hate the stupid siren in songs thing. That should totally be illegal.

  • Reply Em May 21, 2014 at 5:37 pm

    TOTALLY agree with songs that have sirens. Life wtf?! I can’t ruin my good underwear. And ummmm Mario Kart 8?!?! I just ruined my good underwear…

  • Reply Kate May 21, 2014 at 5:57 pm

    Totally agree about sirens in songs- why must music have something that stresses people out?!

  • Reply Kels @ Blonder Side of LIfe May 21, 2014 at 9:25 pm

    Pie and lattes I’d be down for that lol. And I never played mario kart but mario party was my jam back in the day!

  • Reply Jana @ The Townhouse Pioneer May 21, 2014 at 9:27 pm

    I am seriously doubled over laughing from this entire post. The sirens? Are the worst!!! And I spent many years working in the ghetto so it intimidates me way less than it should.

    I feel like I could have written this post because YES! To everything.

  • Reply Stephanie May 22, 2014 at 3:17 pm

    I’ve never actually played Mario Kart. Eeek!!!
