–I have become that person. That person that uses a sharpie to hide a grey hair. #hagstatus #itsnotweirdifitiworks

–We are doing some work in Michigan this week and several places have roads named 21 Mile Road, 33 Mile Road. I can’t help but think of Eminem and 8 Mile and feel all gangsta and bust out in rap in my head whilst working. #8Mile #Rabbit

–Does anyone else miss AIM chats? I mean, they were the coolest. And you had to have a super fun bio and cryptic away messages. What was your screenname? Obviously it was something totally cool. #AIMFOREVER #A/S/L

–Monday morning I was so tired that I used face wash instead of shampoo in my hair.  #caffeineneeded #sendhelp

–I don’t understand why people have to be rude in comments. I have to assume they are either a horrible person or they are an internet troll and their sole purpose is to bring others down. I have seen a few rude comments when I go to leave my comment on others blogs and I feel myself get all defensive for the person whose blog it is. Here is a free tip for you – If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all. Disagreeing with something is fine, but there is no reason to be outright rude. #igotyourback #bitchesbecray #thatswack

–I have two unread emails in my blog comment email account and I can’t find them. It drives me insane because I am one of those people that likes to clear out all their messages so the notification thing goes away. It wont go away because of two said emails and I seriously have searched 50 pages back and cant find it. This is a huge problem for my OCD self!! #OCD #sorryifitwasyourcomment #whereiswaldo

Confessions in ecard:

so grateful.:






I know it's not talking about this, but I mirror people's expressions when they talk without even realizing it. Makes me very self-conscious.:

    I have no time for rudeness or rude people. In the blogging room, there is no space for them. #goawayrudepeople
    I didn’t do aim chat. I’m old and uncool. I did have msn messenger.

    I need to try this Sharpie trick! I have two grey hairs and I swear they’re from the day I had to drive from Charleston to Kentucky. They weren’t there before that day!

  • Reply Kelli April 6, 2016 at 8:12 am

    I don’t think there is a sharpie to match my hair color but I should let my sister know this trick.

    Who is mean in blog comments and why? That’s nuts.

  • Reply laura April 6, 2016 at 8:37 am

    My screenname was AUSthrngal. FOR FREAKIN REAL. Loved me some IM. Also that ecard about the reasons why you hate work is probably the most accurate thing I have ever seen. I still can’t believe that comment you showed me yesterday — I mean. just no.

    Oh gosh I had AIM when it was almost not cool to have AIM anymore haha!! But I do miss chatting – I don’t have gchat at work and I miss that so much!! There are 100% not enough days in the weekend! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    I’ve been working out solid for a week so naturally I need to see results right now……oh it doesn’t work that way? Yes girl to the aim. I’m trying to think of my name, I’m pretty sure it involved a lot of numbers though lol

  • Reply April 6, 2016 at 9:35 am

    my little sis and i were JUST talking about AIm and how it was our JAM! my old screen name is my password on some things so i won’t say it. let’s just say it was very 2000s and very embarrassing.

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph April 6, 2016 at 9:35 am

    Been on that sharpie kick for years ( . It works! Did it this morning. LOL

  • Reply mandie April 6, 2016 at 9:36 am

    Oh girl, you used face wash instead of shampoo…you clearly were in desperate need of some caffeine. Ouch.

    I totally agree with you on the “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all”. I really do get upset with all the mean & rude comments people will leave. One CAN respectfully disagree, it can be done.

  • Reply Amy April 6, 2016 at 9:47 am

    Hahaha… I grew up off of 5 Mile just down the road from Eminem but not in a trailer park… not that there’s anything wrong with that. Sharpie??? I might need to try this as it will be in my unemployed hair color budget!

    The other day I was making pizza for Erica and her BFF. I tried to put the cardboard box in the oven and the pizza back in the freezer. Fortunately no fire started.

    I so want to call out those rude trolls!! It’s like how dare you, this sweet blogger is putting her heart out there, leave her be!! Sharpies are magic, use them on my shoes and earrings, lol. Hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday!!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo April 6, 2016 at 11:00 am

    I had the same thing happen with my inbox the other day – I cant remember how I found where the 2 things were… but it was like it was mocking me saying I had 2 unread emails. DROVE ME NUTS!

    Sharpie trick – you may be onto something 🙂

    I dont people that feel like mean comments accomplish ANYTHING but make them look like an a-hole

  • Reply lisacng @ April 6, 2016 at 11:01 am

    Kathy must still be on vacation ’cause she didn’t link to her own link-up, haha! Oh yes, I remember AOL. I remember when the chat could read your messages to you in different voices. My roommate and I would message each other in the same room with the scary voice on. Oh, the days! Isn’t it crazy that that wasn’t even “instant” since you had to be logged-on at a computer???? I have washed my hair with face wash many a time.

  • Reply Dani April 6, 2016 at 11:19 am

    The sharpie idea is genius! Luckily I don’t have too many yet, but I’ll definitely keep this in mind. My AIM sn was Lightria. I have no idea how I came up with it, but when asked I’d say it was the goddess of lightning- some people believed me! And YESSS to that bridesmaid e-card! I don’t understand why or how they do it!

  • Reply Erin LFF April 6, 2016 at 11:55 am

    I’m going to keep that sharpie idea in mind haha- never heard of that before! I have only seen a few stray grays here and there but I just pull those out… or pretend they are blonde 😉 I had a bunch of AIM names, but I remember one was “Tigger” something with a bunch of numbers, and also one called HoopGirlE when I was in my basketball glory days 😉 lol

  • Reply Monica April 6, 2016 at 12:59 pm

    I love the 20 bridesmaids ecard. I definitely do not like enough people to have that many! I’ve never heard of anyone using a sharpie, thats smart!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders April 6, 2016 at 1:42 pm

    Oh my goodness, I seriously can’t stand that little red bubble with a number in it on my iPhone, so I totally feel your pain! And AIM was awesome! Some friends of ours started dating in high school, and they started talking on AIM. They think it’s embarrassing, but I think it’s cute and just shows the time we grew up in. And ugh to Internet trolls! I don’t understand why they feel the need to be like that either! If you couldn’t say something to somebody’s face then you shouldn’t write it on the internet!

  • Reply Cara April 6, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    People who leave rude comments are seriously ridiculous! I completely agree with the sentiment that if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say it. Also, I definitely miss AIM- it was my fave!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista April 6, 2016 at 2:42 pm

    Girl rock that sharpie! I’m sorry you’ve been getting rude comments, first of all I can’t fathom why and secondly I don’t understand what is wrong with some people. Awwww I miss AIM, google chat at work has nothing on AIM and our super cool away messages. Now people use Facebook as their away messages, but nobody cares that you are at the gym or just baked this and that 😛

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family April 6, 2016 at 3:26 pm

    Oh, AOL chat. Good days! My username was DingHaiLe which is my Chinese name (it means Ocean of Joy) so not terribly creative. But I did love that people had such fun names. Christopher’s was kiwisurferboy. Which is hilarious because he wasn’t Australian and had never surfed before. Ah, I love his quirkiness.

    And yes, I’m with you on the rude comments. Clearly they don’t remember the lesson from Kindergarten: If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. Shame, shame.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis April 6, 2016 at 3:28 pm

    Ha! I remember my AOL name….but too embarrassing to share! What about ICQ? Those were the days!

  • Reply Lily April 6, 2016 at 3:56 pm

    I need to try the sharpie trick, LOL!
    I COMPLETELY agree with you on the mean comments, I also get defensive for the blogger/vlogger, it’s just so mean and unnecessary!
    I’m SO OCD when it comes to my emails too…I feel ya…
    Laughed at all of the funny e-cards!

    Hahaha at the Sharpie! I do the bad thing and pull mine… I hate when people leave rude comments, too. Like is your life that pathetic? We have an AIM messenger like thing at our office and I LOVE it, except my boss told us all we couldn’t leave statuses anymore. That really hurt.

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots April 6, 2016 at 7:16 pm

    Bahaha, that 20 bridesmaids ecard! Yes! My aim user names were Omelin2 (I participated in Odyssey of the Mind aka OM in elementary school and my friend and I called ourselves Omelins, kind of like gremlins lol!) and lilblondie06.. That was my user name until aim was no longer popular *cringe*

  • Reply kristen April 7, 2016 at 8:10 am

    bahahahaha at the sharpie. i have never done that. i see my grey hairs, i just don’t care. now if there was a sharpie to cover wrinkles….. and omg yes we do work in michigan and one of my projects is actually on 8 mile road haha. the eating healthy ecard thingy is fabulous and so true. and you know how i feel about rude comments so i’ll just leave it there haha
