–Getting back in the swing of things after vacation is hard. Really hard. #reality

–Stupid people make me rage lately. While scrolling through my news feed (you already know this is going to be ridiculous) some girl posted that she was so distraught about the divorce of Bennifer. Like seriously? That is what you have to be sad about? What about the shit storm that is going on over in Greece? Or the homeless veterans you pass on your way to work every morning? Or China’s economy. Let’s put down the US Weekly folks. #getalife

–Speaking of rage, I can’t believe how offended people are getting about EVERYTHING these days. You can’t say or do anything anymore. #noteverythingisaboutyou

–It hurts that Gracie ignored me when I picked them up from boarding on Monday. Mac was so excited to see me! He went nuts and jumped in to my arms. My little Gracie? She walked straight past me to the door and out to the car. I didn’t get so much as a tail wag. The woman who was standing next to me waiting for her dog to come out was like “Oh wow, she is mad!!!” Sigh. The pug in her shows more often than not. Usually she is beside herself when she sees me and starts whimpering out of excitement and can’t run to me fast enough. #justloveme

–I decided I would rather have water than an adult beverage that I don’t love. #beersnob

Beer snob

–When I met up with my sister the other day, I made a comment about how I tanned while at the beach. Tracy looks at me, laughs and says “That’s a tan?”  #rude #irishskin #pastyisthenewsexy

–For the first time in my adult life, I have a library card! I joined my local library on Monday when I had off. #thingswedowithafreeweekday #iwanttoreadallthebooks

Confessions in ecard


This is so me ! I always do this !

funny ecards

I'm sure you'll think I'm talking about you, like with the jealousy quotes. Funny thing was none of them were directed at you, but since the shoe seems to fit so well, feel free to rock it :-)

    Coming back from vacation is the worst. And I’m with you- no Bud or Miller Lite for me! If you’re going to drink water, it might as well be calorie-free. Your ecard about the neighbors is us exactly! And the Bennifer thing I’ve seen, too. Like I wish that was my biggest worry!

  • Reply Laura July 8, 2015 at 8:24 am

    I think you and I would offend all of America with our conversations. 🙂 Ooops. Also, yes to the neighbors e-card — B is all over the being neighborly, but I’d rather hide inside with my Netflix. Gracie will come around — she just has to let you know how mad she is first.

  • Reply Julia @ Grace Makes New July 8, 2015 at 8:46 am

    Ugh yes about everyone getting offended about everything! Plus if they are going to get offended why can’t they get offended and keep it to themselves once in a while?? I mean I get offended/annoyed at things all the time and you know what? I don’t have to post on social media about it! 😉 Aww that’s so sad about Gracie, I hate when my dogs act like they are mad at me, I feel awful!

  • Reply Andrea Nine July 8, 2015 at 8:52 am

    That ecard is so true about the neighbors! Why do I do that? They’re nice but sometimes I just do not want to chat, I want to let my dog out and pull weeds in peace. Lol. Sorry about the rudeness. People should learn not to mess with Nadine!!! And I bet you are glowing with that shores suntan!!! Any bit of vitamin D is awesome!! I hope your Wednesday is wonderful, stress free and full of respectful people!!! 🙂

  • Reply Michael July 8, 2015 at 9:05 am

    Ugh, yes to ALL of the above!!

  • Reply Kristen July 8, 2015 at 9:21 am

    yes to stupid people. who cares about shit like that when there are more important things to worry about?
    um, what is wrong with bud light? we can’t be friends anymore 😛

  • Reply Biana Perez July 8, 2015 at 9:32 am

    I feel like you really can’t say or do anything anymore because someone will be offended and i blame a little bit of that on the media for literally showing us everything that they think we need to know! Haha people don’t understand the plight of those of us who just can’t tan!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  • Reply Joey July 8, 2015 at 10:01 am

    YAYYYYY for the library card! And yeah…I popped on FB the other day to snag some of my wedding photos and I came to the conclusion that FB is literally the saddest and most infuriating place on the planet.

  • Reply Jenn @ Optimization Actually July 8, 2015 at 10:28 am

    I was at the beach yesterday and my friend’s daughter said, “I don’t tan; I just get paler.” Lol! She’s only 8, but she knows how this works. I finally found a good purpose for Bud Light! We were at a BBQ and they were playing flip cup. Being the boring adult I am now, I wasn’t really too excited about it (don’t want to get buzzed too quickly), but because we were using Bud Light it wasn’t a problem at all. We didn’t get super full, no one got drunk, but you still got to feel like the game was legit because you weren’t playing with actual water (just something sort of like it).

  • Reply Kelli July 8, 2015 at 11:13 am

    Ooooohhh yayy for your library card. I love mine recently, I use to buy all my books but it’s so much cheaper to borrow.

  • Reply marie July 8, 2015 at 11:31 am

    Congrats on getting your library card!! You will get so much use out of it. Ok, I’m so tired of everyone always getting offended, it’s so crazy. I just want to be like get over yourself.

  • Reply blake July 8, 2015 at 12:18 pm

    I am a complete #beersnob too! Some of my friends just don’t get it.. I like craft beer. Yes, I will pay $8 for a beer compared to your $2 gross beer that should be called pissed water. haha

    I also think people are taking things way too seriously nowadays. It seems like every one is fighting about stupid things. I doubt this will ever go away.

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says July 8, 2015 at 12:30 pm

    Holy hell, that gif is too funny! Also, the ecard about going outside but seeing neighbors? Story of my life.

    I have outrage fatigue. There is nothing that happens that doesn’t cause a flurry of anger and outrage. Except, of course, for the things that actually matter. I don’t know if that made any sense. But I think you get what I’m attempting to say.

  • Reply Katie July 8, 2015 at 12:31 pm

    Oh god, yes, everyone is getting so offensive lately. My entire stupid facebook feed is mostly people sharing articles about people being offended. Can I be offended by all the offensive comments going on without adding to the excessive offensiveness overtaking our world?! Awe poor Gracie, you know she loves you.

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph July 8, 2015 at 1:29 pm

    It’s a sad day when real life crashes into vacation.

    I’m sad about anyone’s divorce unless they were bad for each other. I don’t think we can only be sad about big things. She might’ve been being dramatic too. Isn’t that what facebook is for? Fun and histrionics? Life observations? I can’t use it to be serious all the time.

  • Reply Mattie July 8, 2015 at 1:31 pm

    Oh my goshhhh I finally got a library card a few weeks ago and it is a game changer! Except a bunch of the books on my summer reading challenge list said there were tons of holds on them so I put a hold on them so I could actually get them in the summer…and then like four of them said, “Your hold is available!” It’s stressing me out. I have to decide which ones to get and which ones to wait and put on hold again… But how are there like 38 holds on 5 copies and they’re like “okay your hold is ready!”?! Sorry about the rant, #libraryproblems.

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista July 8, 2015 at 3:03 pm

    YES to the 8th day of the week, and I hear ya about Facebook. I hardly look at it anymore because it just makes my head hurt 😛

  • Reply kathy at real talk July 8, 2015 at 3:44 pm

    yay to the library card! now get ready to rage hard at the ridiculous wait times for new books but when your books do come in, it’s like rainbows and sunshine as you skip to the library to pick your shizz up 😀

  • Reply alyssa July 8, 2015 at 4:00 pm

    Hahahha omg that neighbors ecard is too true. I was heading out for a run the other day and I could hear the two most annoying neighbors in my building who ALWAYS want to chit chat, even when I have headphones in and am heading out for or coming back from a run, out on the porch. So yep, I totally sat and waited for them to come inside because I just was not in the mood!

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth July 8, 2015 at 4:01 pm

    Tell me about it. I was on CNN today and then I had to stop. What is going in the world right now?!?!?! Awwww she definitely told you who was boss. You’re like just love me sorry!!! Yes if here has to be human interaction I’d rather stay inside as well 😉

  • Reply Pamela July 8, 2015 at 4:55 pm

    OMG coming back from vacation is the worst. I was only gone 4 days and Im having the worst time getting back into work mode. Yes to that cheese dip ecard. That is my life every day. No joke.

  • Reply Robin July 8, 2015 at 6:36 pm

    I can definitely relate to the neighbors e-card…I hide. Living in a townhouse with a shared porch was very awkward for me!

  • Reply Amber July 8, 2015 at 7:24 pm

    I love my library card! I hope you enjoy yours.

    I actually prefer Diet Coke to most adult beverages. And it’s cheaper. I’m cheap.

  • Reply Kerry July 8, 2015 at 8:33 pm

    GEtting a library card was the first thing I got when I moved. It’s a must!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis July 8, 2015 at 9:28 pm

    Awww I’m sorry Gracie gave you the cold shoulder. It’s so funny how our fur babies have different personalities – just like us humans. I was honestly expecting the same thing from Lola when we returned from vacation but she wasn’t pissed at us thankfully. lol

  • Reply Jess July 9, 2015 at 1:18 am

    Speaking of people getting offended by everything, I read this post on reddit the other day complaining that people were mocking perfect vaginas. Ummmm what? TMI, but here you go in case you want to be weirded out: I don’t think this is a thing. When do people make fun of that??

  • Reply Heather July 9, 2015 at 4:54 pm

    OMG that cheese eCard!!! Oh, pugs. My grandma had one and he always ate my crayons if i left them on the floor, we weren’t the best of friends but I miss him. Also all the offense, can’t we all just have opinions and not freak out! Yay for the library card!! This just makes me all smiley!

  • Reply Duckie July 14, 2015 at 7:14 am

    Yes to caring about more than celebrity drama! And I agree, some people need to gtf over themselves! This is what happens when we spoil our kids to much and praise them too much for accomplishing nothing. Lmfao and agreeing with all of your ecard confessions as well!

  • Reply Stephanie July 14, 2015 at 11:53 am

    I could use a saturday two right about now, that’s for sure!
    I agree about everyone getting all worked up about everything. Today, it’s that Kylie Jenner put her hair in cornrows and that’s an omg racial thing and she can’t do that. For the love of god people, STFU.
