–When your legs start shaking DURING your leg day work out, there really is no hope for tomorrow, is there???

–This past weekend our side yard needed cut. I used the excuse that it was supposed to rain Sunday to skip out on it. It didn’t rain until like 7PM Sunday and now our side yard looks like a fucking jungle and mocks me when I pull into the drive way every night. I need to look in to some goats…

–Last night I had a dog handling class at the humane society and we walked through the puppy block. I really REALLY just wanted to take them all home with me. Gracie and Mac could use some more siblings, right???

–I have been raging lately at all the comments that have been thrown around about pregnant people and babies. I have several friends that are expecting right now, and a few of them have been bothered by the fact that people have told them they look way too small to be this far along and that they need to be eating more. Or that they can’t believe how much they are showing at this stage and jokingly say..are you sure that isn’t twins. Some random stranger told one of my friends that she is going to forget all about her dog when the kid comes. Or that the way they plan on doing something is the wrong way.

Whoa whoa whoa. Who in the hell do these people think they are to say these things and pass judgement?? There is no right or wrong way to do anything. As long as you are healthy and your kid is healthy, what does it matter if you dress your little girl up in bows and glitter? Or you son wears a shirt that says “handsome like my daddy”. Or that you plan on having your kid sleep in a crib from day one, or you want to co-sleep. It all goes back to, if you don’t have anything nice to say…then don’t say anything at all. There is more than one way to play the game of life.

–Clearly I had some pent up ranting and wrote a novel up there.

    I’ve seen that miley cyrus ecard before but it makes me laugh out loud every time! And as for the whole pregnancy comments thing…I’m with you.

    There is more than one way to play the game of life has got to be my new favorite saying ever. I’m totally stealing it from you. And yes — I think we need to raid the humane society and get all those puppies. Gracie and Mac definitely need about 7 more siblings. 🙂

    I literally LOL’d at the swimsuit ecard. That’s me every single year. HAHA!

    Happy Wednesday!

    when I was younger I used to say to people ‘are you sure it’s not twins?!’ because i thought i was funny. now i know what a bitch i was!! lol. i never say anything now, even if i think it, i keep my mouth shut except to say ‘you look fabulous!’ because who gives a damn. like you said, as long as you and the baby are healthy, it doesn’t matter. even when you’re eating mcdonalds every day and haven’t had a sing;e piece of fruit your entire pregnancy and then you give your 2 month old baby real coke, well i won’t say a damn thing because it’s not my place 😉

    1) The courtesy cards – YES must buy – like NOW.

    2) I rage about peoples pregnancy and parenting OPINIONS all the time – like seriously, enough stress surrounds both of those things – people do not need to add to it with their own bologna.

    3) Miley Cyrus Home Deport Meme – DYING!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph May 20, 2015 at 10:55 am

    I never say a thing to a pregnant lady except how are you feeling and you look great. Unless I saw them smoking crack or something…then I’d probably say something.

  • Reply Julia @ Grace Makes New May 20, 2015 at 10:58 am

    HAHAHA that Miley Cyrus card! And the two second dog one, SO accurate! I am terrified to drop anything when I’m handling something like grapes or chocolate or other things that are bad for them because they are always right there and I know if I drop a grape they are going to be all over it!

  • Reply Jenn @ Business, Life & Design May 20, 2015 at 10:59 am

    I love the courtesy card! I mean, useful and well designed? Win win! There is nothing like pregnancy and children to make everyone jump all over you with their judgementalness. I’m like you, I don’t even have a kid and it bothers me when I see this stuff happen to my friends. And I’m sure that’s just a small portion of what they’ve actually dealt with.

  • Reply Kasey May 20, 2015 at 11:10 am

    I don’t understand why people think it’s cool to say some of the things they do to pregnant women. also the way that people think it’s okay to touch a pregnant woman’s belly. that freaks me out. I would probably punch someone if they touched my stomach.

    ALSO the ecard about Miley + wasted at home depot. I literally laughed so loud I fell out of my chair.

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer May 20, 2015 at 11:25 am

    I’m with you on being pissed at things people say- not just to pregnant women but everyone! Have you ever heard of minding your own business?! I get a lot of “you need to smile.” You have no idea what’s going on with me! That is so rude I think. And that last card- I NEED it for a coworker. He talks dirty to his wife on the phone during work hours!!

  • Reply Mia @ MakeMeUpMia May 20, 2015 at 11:31 am

    Girl, your rant on the pregnancy comments, I feel 100% the same way! I feel like when I’m pregnant I’m going to have to stay home and off social media. I know comments will come and I already have an issue with them so when they’re directed at me, I will probably SNAP…

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis May 20, 2015 at 11:38 am

    I agree about the pregnancy talk and dont understand why people think they need to give their two cents on someone else’s life especially if it’s critical.

  • Reply Erin LFF May 20, 2015 at 11:43 am

    People are seriously crazy- the judgy things they say and do when its comes to children/pregnancy blows my mind!

  • Reply Katie May 20, 2015 at 11:56 am

    LOL at the popular table at the mental institute!!! And arghhh on the pregnancy judgement. People can be so freaking rude, they say things to me about my body that they would NEVER say to me if I wasn’t pregnant. There is no “right” way to be pregnant or raise a child, let everyone be!

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo May 20, 2015 at 12:15 pm

    Hahahaha the Miley Cyrus/Home Depot ecard is great – and the “popular people on the internet” one. LOL

  • Reply Rebecca Jo May 20, 2015 at 12:24 pm

    Oh mercy… that sounds like my legs. They were shaking as soon as I started working out. I was like, this is bad.

    I can’t even go near a humane society… take home ALL the dogs!

  • Reply Chris May 20, 2015 at 1:14 pm

    Pregnancy comments: Yes, people always have something to say, even my Doctor, lol. It’s a shame that so many people feel the need to say things that are completely NOT their business. And touching my belly, ALL THE TIME. When I was pregnant with the boys random women would just come up and touch my belly, “Oh, I’m sorry! How far along are you? What are you having”, and I am still a little shocked because they are still TOUCHING ME!

  • Reply Biana Perez May 20, 2015 at 1:30 pm

    If some stranger asked me if I was having twins – I’m pretty sure I’d go crazy on them lol! That miley cyrus card is too funny!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    OMG the miley meme I DIE!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHH

    oh girl when people get pregnant/become parents, it’s judgement all the live long day. don’t you know that once you become a mother, you’re suddenly the walking bible of perfect parenting and that everyone else is doing it wrong?!? *insert eye roll here*. it’s why i never hung out in mommy groups because i’d legit have to tell them to STFU.

  • Reply Deborah May 20, 2015 at 2:36 pm

    I literally LAUGHED OUT LOUD at the goats comment!!! You’re hilarious! Oh… and that Home Depot ecard… On point! lol

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista May 20, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    I’m always amazed at people who think they need to give their input on someone else’s health or pregnancy. Pregnant women are emotional enough without people telling them they’re not doing something right or they’ll forget about their dog. Seriously who does that?!

    And LOL at needing a goat, I’m stealing that 😉

  • Reply Mree May 20, 2015 at 5:09 pm

    Unless someone tells me that they are pregnant, I say nothing. Once someone said something to this lady and umm she wasn’t pregnant. It was so awkward. It’s like burned in my head, don’t say anything unless that person has told you. I also knew a girl who lost her baby right at eight months but still looked pregnant. So sad.

    It wasn’t a good leg day if you an walk the next day! Haha! OMG I need the courtesy card, so many loud talkers! I so don’t think people should say anything about a woman and her body when pregnant, unless they ask you, it is their body to do with it what they want.

  • Reply B @ The Sequin Notebook May 21, 2015 at 8:21 am

    First of all, those “courtesy cards” are fantastic – and I know several people who could use them 😉 Some of my friends have had those same rude comments directed towards them when they were pregnant…it’s amazing how many people think they are entitled to pass judgment!

  • Reply Runwright May 21, 2015 at 12:01 pm

    I found you in the hashtag linkup and… oh I love those cards… and your sense of humor. I’m going to follow your blog before I even read another post. You should totally do the same

  • Reply alyssa May 21, 2015 at 1:13 pm

    It honestly astounds me every damn day how few people know when to just shut. the. hell. up! No, I did NOT ask for your opinion about my body, or if I look like a runner, or for you to guess my damn weight. And it is SO inappropriate to make ANY comment to ANY woman about her pregnancy or weight gain during or after. It makes me irate. I never, EVER hear anyone go up to a man and tell him to eat a cheeseburger or suggest he order a salad instead, or ask if he’s carrying some “baby weight.” Just STFU and keep your unwelcome comments about other people’s bodies to yourself!

  • Reply Lindsay T. May 21, 2015 at 8:40 pm

    but really what the HELL IS WRONG WITH EVERYONE! I can’t STAND how people talk to my pregnant friends -“are you sure you should eat that” “are you actually still running? You know that’s not good for the baby” “You should just have a few drinks it really doesn’t matter just drink” OMG LET MY FRIENDS LIVE

  • Reply Kay R. May 24, 2015 at 7:58 pm

    Im with you on the leg hurting during a workout – thats when you know you will be hobbling around for a week. Also as for the pregnancy comments – people are just way too free to express their opinions on other peoples lives these days!
