–The internet at my office kept going in and out yesterday and I felt like I was a citizen of a third world country. It reminded me of the old dial up days. It also reminded me that I have zero patience for technology. #firstworldproblems
–Revenge is over. We watched the last episode on Monday night and I am not sure what will happen to my Monday now?! I feel sad that we will no longer have Nolan in our lives. I hate to admit it, but it was time for that show to end. I mean, where else were they going to go with it? Still, I always feel a loss when a great show ends. I am also sad that The Mindy Project was cancelled. #theyarefictionalletthemgo
–I saw someone tweet that they were so excited about the Bachelor or Bachelorette starting back up and I wanted to respond to them with “LAME!!!” Because really….I can’t stand those shows. I know I am in the minority. #whocares
–Speaking of not caring for shows, you won’t see any tears shed here about the demise of American Idol. It ran it’s course a long time ago. Does anyone even watch it still? #byefelicia #yourenotthenextamericanidol
–Sometimes when I hear a song for the first time, I think it is awful and it annoys the shit out of me when I hear it. Then….out of no where…I start liking it. Does this happen to anyone else? Uptown Funk comes to mind here. #butitscatchy #girlhityourhallelujah
–I have the hardest time finding the will to paint my nails. Why do they have to take so long to dry? Committing to an hour of not doing anything with my hands is too much for me. #patience
–Bloglovin is getting a big fuck you from me. All this week it hasn’t been giving me new updated posts from everyone and I have to “mark as read” myself on the posts it does give me. I started transferring stuff over to Feedly but it is taking some time. Sorry if I missed any of your posts this week. #fuckbloglovin
–The roads in our neighborhood are so bad that a small child could get lost in the pot holes. That is not an exaggeration. But what concerns me most, besides the whole value of our house thing, is that every morning when I have my drink in the car…I have to hold it a certain way so it doesn’t splash out. And every morning I curse the city and the damn liar of a mayor who told us this shit was going to be fixed. Don’t spill my drink damnit! #rage
–When I earn a gift card from Swagbucks or MyPoints…I agonize over how to spend it. It’s free money and I want to get the most bang for my buck. #indecisive #ridiculous
–I didn’t work out on Tuesday. At all. Not even a little. I felt like death and my breathing was so bad that walking across a room had me winded. In fact, I basically looked liked this all day. #exhausted
–A certain fitness badass that we all know and love asked me to be friends on MyFitnessPal yesterday. I was like…
I haven’t logged food on that thing since like February and now I am going to have to be on that shit. I will be thinking twice about any bad food I shove in my face hole knowing that she can see it too!!! This is a good thing. A very good thing. #accountability #fitbitches
–My mother is the easiest person on the planet to buy gifts for. She literally loves everything. It’s so easy in fact….that I can’t make up my mind on what to get her because I have a zillion ideas and therefore have nothing yet. #thehorror #indecisive
–I am not going to include any spoilers because I hate spoilers…but I cried like a freaking baby watching Grey’s Anatomy last week. Like big alligator tears and some mini sobs. Chris laughed at me and was like, it’s just TV this isn’t real. That’s not the point!!! #alloftheemotions
–Speaking of being ridiculous while watching TV, I squealed when the “devil” came through the door in This is the End. Again, Chris was like…this is supposed to be a funny movie not a scary one. But but that was a scary part! Clearly I get way too involved while watching TV. Also it was scary looking…see…#scary
–Every time I see someone post a beach picture I want to slap them. Because I am a jealous whore. It has been too long! Come on July!!! #needavacationyesterday
–I might have gotten a little too excited when I heard about the free update for Mario Kart 8 that includes a 200cc class!!! I can’t wait to try it out this weekend! #gamingnerd
–I went to happy hour last night with some friends and did not have a single drop of alcohol or any food. I was just there to socialize. You in fact can socialize without consuming calories. Who knew? #Progress
–Speaking of which, can I just say how amazing this community is? I had so many people encouraging and in believing in me yesterday and that felt great. Some of you even said you were in the same place. I just love how we can all come together and relate to each other. #Love love love.
I haven’t done a confession post the last two weeks and I missed it. I hope you did too? Either way, it’s baaaccckkkk! (read that in a creepy/stalker tone, obviously)
–You guys. You guys. For the love! Why is it that Roden and Fields has taken over Facebook??? I have a few Facebook “friends” that are distributors and that is great and all. Congrats in fact! But here is the thing, you aren’t fooling anyone with the comments on your posts about how awesome that shit is. Every person that comments is another Roden and Fields distributor as well. I might have been interested in trying it out, you know, before you posted about it eleventy bazillion times and bothered the ever living shit out of me. Just no. But love you, mean it. I can handle maybe a post or two a week about it, but more than that? #justno
–I keep seeing this quote everywhere I turn. Do you think it is trying to tell me something? #voodoo
–Oh life lessons. I believe in either middle school or high school I learned the hard way that those who gossip to you will gossip about you. Sadly, that story is still true well into adulthood. If people want to believe that a shit-stirrers gossip is true, then I don’t need them in my life. #peoplesuck
–I have two nephews graduating preschool/daycare this week and heading to kindergarten. How has it been 5 years already??? Not to mention my oldest niece went to her first prom last weekend. She’s just a freshmen, but still…when my sister sent me a picture of her and the bf before they left…just wow! #wheredidthetimego
—Erin wrote a post yesterday asking “What happened to blogging?” It was basically like she wrote exactly what I have said to a few people recently. When did blogging become this cut throat competition of pin-worthy content, fancy pictures and a bunch of rules about what you should and shouldn’t do? I have been writing in this space for 3 years and sometimes it makes me sad to see how much things have changed. I come here and write what I write because I want to. Because I love connecting with you. Because I need a creative outlet.
I never pressure myself to see how many page views I get in a day or sell myself out because I am trying to make this blog a full time business. I have seen so many great bloggers get burned out and quit because they were trying too hard to be perfect. Perfect is boring folks. Write because you want to. Do what you want. What feels good.
–Everyone has been posting about how excited they are for the Lily collection to hit Target. Confession? I never really cared for LP and actually made fun of people for paying ridiculous amounts of money for a dress that looks like the wallpaper of a 85 year old’s bathroom…until I saw the collection for Target. Some of the stuff is actually really cute! #cheaperismoreappealing
–I park towards the back of parking lot’s most days not because I necessarily try to get more steps in, but because I have no patience for the stupid and lazy that block up the entire aisle waiting so that they don’t have to walk an extra five feet. #nopatienceforstupid
–Am I the only one who is sick of seeing blogging rules posts? I get tips and stuff, but rules? Last time I checked this was my blog and I do what I want. If you don’t like it, then don’t read it! #IDoWhatIWant
–I got all warm and fuzzy yesterday when so many of you said that you were proud of me for getting further in my runs and/or being able to cut the entire yard in one session. Seriously, thanks for all the encouragement! It will go a long way on days that I am down. #bloglove
–I don’t get how some people get so excited over April Fool’s day? Like, I like the beginning of each new month and all but the pranks?! Maybe because I am an honest person and a terrible liar…but I just hate all the lame ass pranks that people try to pull. Oh you put salt in the sugar container? Congrats on ruining everyone’s coffee in the break room. #aprilfoolsisforfools
–Is it sad that I am actually going to make it a goal to take more baths? We have a beautiful garden tub in our master bathroom that is rarely ever used. I have scented epsom salts and face masks that I can use on top of the relaxation factor so why not?!
