1. Surprisingly it’s not that most pants are capris on me. At least not this time. I am 6′ tall and the fact that these skinny cargos are more like super-crops or capris on me is okay for the summer. I’m also not complaining that they were on mega sale, either. Originally $89.50, when I snatched these off the sales rack, the tag said $16.99. Booyah!…except for me, they were $20. Bugs. You see, Chris and I use our Gap credit card to pay a lot of our bills and to purchase big ticket items. We pay it all off right away and still reap the Gap rewards–being $10 to Gap/BR/Old Navy for every $1000 you put on your Gap card. Every month we get our reward gift cards in the mail and that takes care of any clothing we want/need….want. What bugs is although these pants were $16.99, I had to fork over my entire $20 gift voucher–or spend more money. They wouldn’t give me change or let me take the extra $3 to Gap and get a hat for Greta or some socks for Chris. So, I cut my losses (because what is $3 at BR?!) and chalked it up to saving $70—but still. Bugs.
2. Last night after Greta went to bed and we were cleaning up the kitchen and dreaming of new cabinets and appliances and a new layout (we have BIG plans for the kitchen), we noticed that our dishwasher wasn’t draining. Ironically, it was right after we decided to save our pennies to buy a luxe new french door fridge with Chris’s upcoming bonus. Bummer, the dishwasher is still full of water, even after my “don’t break on us now, baby” pep talk.
3. Chevron stripes in home decor. Eeeeks. I know I just offended a handful of people. Sorry. It’s not that I think it looks bad–because I have seen it look super chic–It’s more that it is so. over. done. They are everywhere right now, and sadly, I think people are putting them places just to be on trend. I’m over it. They officially bug now.
4. How people get so excited to be the first to comment on facebook and blog threads–their comment is “first!” That’s what you had to say? It’s so awesome when the first five people write it (or variations i.e. 1st! number 1! I’m first! Winner!) as well and then they all look so….pathetic. Why? Why do you feel the need to proclaim that you are the first to comment? We all see that you are first. And you don’t get a prize. If you are going to comment, make it relevant and thought out…even if it makes you second.
5. I still compare almost every action/thinker movie to Inception, which makes movie night not so enjoyable. I think I should probably get a grip and come to terms with the fact that not every movie has to have such a deep plot. But when I watch movies like “The Tourist” on Tuesday night and walk away thinking, “Wow, lame” it’s really just because it only had 2 storylines instead of 5 and the twist at the end was expected and it didn’t blow my mind like Inception. How can I get over this? Netflix better movies I guess. (For instance, we watched Catfish a couple weeks ago and we still talk about it.)
6. Date night tonight at Pizzeria 712 and then browsing countertops and a movie and snuggling. Oh wait, that’s the thing that definitely doesn’t bug. Happy Friday.
