Confessions and Scooby Snacks

–Sooooo I have finally come to terms with the fact that I am just really awkward. Like really REALLY awkward. I admitted this out loud in the car to Chris on our way to a get together at some guys house that we met at a bar a few weeks back. Totally normal. I told him that I was sort of not into going to said get together because I am just really awkward around people that I don’t know. Ok. I am awkward around people that I know very well too, but at least it is a comfortable awkward. For me, anyways. My family probably just thinks I am crazy.

Let me give you an example of this. The hallway in our office is really long. When someone else is walking down it, I smile nervously at them and then start messing               with my arms or investigating empty offices. I mean…what else do you do. Please. Tell me what you do with your hands?!?!?!?!



–After the link up yesterday, I realized this was true. It is so true. And ummmm……ouch. I can’t be the only one who thinks the 90’s was the last decade, can I?

–My co-worker randomly asked me this morning how old I was. When he realized we were the same age he says “Do you remember LFO?” I was like “Do you like girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch?” He was like “Yesssssss!!!!! Have you ever really listened to the lyrics of the song? They talk about Scooby Snacks in the Girls on TV song.” I almost said, “You should see my blog post today about back in my day.” Luckily I stopped myself before I realized the horrific error I almost made. Almost.

–Also, while on the subject of LFO….mad props to Lauren and Jess for getting my tweet yesterday afternoon!

–I have one finger nail that is longer than all the others. It is driving me crazy. How did I miss it?

–While driving I find myself calling the person their car. “Come on Mazda. Just a little faster there. Let’s pass that car! We can do it, Mazda!” or something like “I know that you want to drive off a cliff Mini Van because you hate your life but there is no need to drive like an idiot.”

–I laughed harder than I should have for that….

–While shopping, I constantly find myself saying things like “This would have been really cute if they didn’t have this on it.” Or this would be so cute in this color.” “This would have been perfect if they actually made it on a correct size scale and not 5 times smaller than it should be.” Like seriously!!!! I really want to open my own boutique for women who are in their 20’s-50’s that want to dress a little on the trendy side, but still keep it classy yet fun. And carry good quality stuff that is flattering on all body types. Why can’t I just have unlimited funds to do this?!

–I have been going to be between 10pm and 11pm every night so far this week and let me tell you…..it is kicking my ass!!!! It’s settled, my grandma ass has to be in bed BEFORE 10pm in order to function properly the next day. I mean, I wake up at 4:25am to work out so give me a break! I was really tempted to do this yesterday afternoon….



And now, some more confessions in ecards


Linking up for the hump day confessions with either Kathy or Stephanie…whoever has their shit together this morning. Just kidding. Poor Kathy has been having issues with her blog going down. Silly internet. Also linking up with my girl Liz for the hump day blog hop!

    HA that damn song will be in my head ALL DAY now! So funny about the blog thing. I was referencing Mean Girls with a coworker yesterday (who used to blog but doesn’t know I know that… and we are IG friends so she probably knows about my blog…) and I wanted to be like “Yeah I just rewatched it bc my blog friends all love it” but I stopped myself too. And I love the ecard about not thinking before speaking!

    haha thank you so much for sharing! i do the exact same thing when i shop – i would buy so many more things if they just made them the way i wanted. lol. i have no idea who LFO is but I’m Aussie, so I blame it on that. 90s absolutely is only a decade away, because I can’t be that old. Haha

    Oh I love this post! I can be so awkward so I can relate. I am right there with you calling cars by their names, the whole not knowing what to do with your hands sometimes, and the early bedtime. xo

    im the same way when i shop! i’d buy a certain something if it didn’t have lace, frills, longer length so my vagina doesn’t hang out..that sort of thing. i wish i knew how to make my own clothes!

    thanks for linking up! here’s hoping my blog doesn’t turn into an asshole again and shut down.

    I think the same things when shopping. Oh if it didn’t have that…I wish it was this color. On and on.

    I will have that LFO song in my head for an eternity now. I still like it!

    What about the awkward conversations people like to try and have when you pass in the hallway…
    JEEEEZ… I just smile meekly and stare at my feet…. praying they don’t talk to me. hahahaha

    You are not the only one who thinks the 90’s is the last decade I always think that … followed by damn Im old!

  • Reply Em April 23, 2014 at 3:00 pm

    OMG 90’s music for the win!!! It seriously brightens my day every single time without fail. And I sing the crap out of each lyric like it’s my job. Spice Girls? Nsync? You know it!! Have a great day girl!

  • Reply Bri @ My Life As April 23, 2014 at 3:11 pm

    I loved LFO!! I never know what to do with my hands either…or where to look when I’m walking towards people.

  • Reply Laura April 23, 2014 at 3:31 pm

    Girl, your grandma time of 1030 is still an hour later than mine!! Who’s the grandma now?? 🙂

    Chinese food makes me sick…

  • Reply brooke lyn April 23, 2014 at 4:29 pm

    we have a long hallway at our office too and it gets so awkward!!! the worst is to get to the bathroom we have to walk by other businesses so i pass people i don’t know and then it is even more awkward, especially if they try to avoid all eye contact. just smile and say hello please!

  • Reply Lindsay | Broke and Bougie April 23, 2014 at 4:42 pm

    OMGGG love EVERYTHING about this post!! From a fellow awkward-city person, I hate when I walk in the door behind someone at my office and we do the awkward door-holding-dance and end up going all the way to the same floor (4 doors). ALSO have you seen these videos “Kids React” that are kids trying to figure out how to even turn ON a walkman? ahhhh

  • Reply Kerry April 23, 2014 at 4:45 pm

    I totally remember LFO and they are from Massachusetts! What, what?! Not sure why I am proud of that, huh?! That milkshake one made me laugh a little too hard. I stay up late to finish a book and now i want to nap on my desk! Ugh.

  • Reply Meighan April 23, 2014 at 5:27 pm

    honestly, the person under their desk is my life. daily. and it was literally my life during the snowstorm fiasco.

    There aren’t any Walmarts in my area but I get major road rage at Costco. I want to pummel everyone in front of me.

  • Reply Amanda April 23, 2014 at 10:40 pm

    I call people by their cars, too!!!!!!! hahahaha Sometimes I call them “fucking idiot” too though.

  • Reply Heidi April 24, 2014 at 12:11 am

    I am so totally awkward and find myself running my hands through my hair OCDs style when I’m nervous! Maybe always carry something when you walk down the hall?!
    It’s not the 90’s anymore? Haha I totally feel like 1999 was yesterday. And I have major road rage…glad I’m not the only one yelling at other cars!

  • Reply Jessi April 24, 2014 at 12:46 am

    Haha I feel like life got easier once I came to terms with owning my awkward.

  • Reply Jules April 24, 2014 at 5:46 pm

    Ugh, girl if you need a boutique partner let me know. I have been looking for the SIMPLEST necklace all week and can’t find anything!
