Stuff A Lot Of People Do, But I Don't

--Wear sweaters tied loosely around my neck. I seriously thought only Hollywood did this in movies to show who the rich prick was. But no, it's a real life thing.




--Co-sleep. I have enough issues with sharing the bed with my husband.



--Make bento lunches. If regular non-shaped sandwiches were good enough for me, they're good for my children too. Oh, and they eat white bread, not wheat.



--Hide vegetables in the dinners that I make. Look, I'd be livid if someone shoved zucchini in my spaghetti when I wasn't looking. If I serve a vegetable with a meal, it's visible.



--Wear my pajama pants in public. I just can't.



--Make squash spaghetti or use that wheat noodle crap that tastes like wet cardboard. I make real spaghetti. I was once chastised for this when I announced the fact on Facebook. Look, I like what I like, okay?



--Use the world selfie when sharing a photo of myself. I wonder if people realize that you can share a photo of yourself without calling it a selfie. It's a terrible word and I wish it would go away.



--Get turned on by Magic Mike. I just found the entire thing hilarious. When men gyrate their funny looking appendage at me, I giggle.

  2. I watched Magic Mike and hated it. It was so stupid.

  3. I don't have kids but have enough issues sharing a bed with adults. No thanks.

    I love spaghetti and will never give it up. I also like some healthier versions in certain things, but you will always find the real deal in my pantry.

    Never saw Magic Mike, not planning to.

  4. I feel the same on cosleeping - it wasn't for us!!
    And, I don't even own pajama pants - I can't imagine wearing them out in public and thinking it is OK!!! (I see it plenty but...)
    I've never seen Magic Mike and probably won't.

  5. i've worn pj pants in public to walk ym dog, but in my defense, it was 6am. ;)

  7. My husband (YES! MY HUSBAND) saw that Magic Mike was available for download on our tv-so he downloaded it for me figuring I'd like to watch it sometime. It sat there for like...4 months before the DVR ate it. I couldn't find the time (or desire) to watch--I mean...not that I have a problem with hunky men or anything--I'm just a busy girl haha! I also cannot and will not wear pajama pants in public--not even to run through a drive thru. I mean, yoga pants, sure. Pajama pants with prints? Don't be a lazy ass. ;)

  8. Sneaking vegetables is wrong and it doesn't get you anywhere. I want my kids to know they are eating vegetables so they can learn to like eating vegetables. Hiding them defeats that purpose. Also, Bento lunches drive me crazy. What do you do with all the left over pieces? Eat them for breakfast at 6 am? Throw them away and waste them? I cut my kids' sandwiches into squares or triangles. That's as creative as I usually get.

  9. I absolutely can not wear sweatpants or pajama pants in public either. Yoga pants though? Okay with me.

  10. agree with you on EVERYTHING...except sneaking veggies.. my kid wont try anything ANYTHING fruit or vegetable. Oh and well channing tatum...MHMMMMMM!

  11. People need to relax. Eat what you want to eat. If it's important to you to eat wheat pasta, then eat wheat pasta... it has no relevance to anyone else's choices. Everyone is so self-riotous these days. Live your life, and let others live theirs.

  12. The co-sleep thing gets me every time. It just seems odd to me. My kids have their own beds, their own rooms and thankfully, their independence from me. :)

  13. I was all about wearing sweat pants in public until my husband asked me if I was going to turn into "one of those women" hahaha...and asked me what was so hard about putting on jeans. In my defense, I said we shop at WalMart, what difference does it make?! We co-slept but only because when we tried the CIO method Stella would cry so hard and have a gag reflex that made her vomit everywhere within 5 seconds. I was not for cleaning up that mess every night when I was already so tired. And yea, no thanks Magic Mike. Haven't watched it and have absolutely no desire to! :)

  14. Amen I did not get turned on by that movie I literally laughed the whole time....it was pure entertainment of the comical kind. Ugh who can seriously wear sweaters around their shoulders??? That would drive me nuts!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't know what co-sleeping is, but I am sure I don't want to do it.

    ReplyDelete
  16. It's amazing how different people are. I did co-sleep with all my babies. I didn't even bother putting the crib up with my last two. Bento lunches are just a waste of my time. Food that's cute doesn't make it taste better. It's a SP not a selfie, hate the word selfie.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Bento lunches a no-go for me too. Who has the time and creativity. I can hardly come up with more interesting options than a sandwich, chips and a fruit. I do "hide" vegetables but only limited-ly. I made that word up :). And I only wear PJ pants if I'm just taking the dogs to pee. Never to the supermarket. Those people are weird. And those people that wear sweatpants and Uggs. And ohmygosh never spaghetti squash. Never.

  18. I'm right there with you on every topic! Have a wonderful weekend!

  19. I co-slept but didn't ram it down anyone's throat who didn't. To each there own. I do make what I think are cute lunches but nothing like the ones I've seen on pinterest. Two seconds to use a cookie cutter. For those who think it's a waste of food, it's the ends my daughter doesn't eat anyway. I usually save them for bread crumbs or we feed the birds.

  20. Don't you worry, friend... I wear my pjs in public enough for the BOTH of us. Because that's what friends do. You're welcome. :)

  21. This is the first time I've read your blog. I think I'm going to continue :) I agree with you on everything and I can't stand those "perfect" judgmental Mommies that criticise everyone who doesn't do it their way. What the heck is a Bento Lunch though? And I only watched Magic Mike to see Channing shake it haha :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yep, pajama pants in public are just never a good look.....That's the look you go for when you're trying to say something like, "I'm homeless" or "I don't own a mirror"

  23. The fancy lunches just confuse me. Do their kids actually eat them? If so, are they older than four? My daughter would laugh at me and then not eat that day. I just know it.
    I'm with you on many of these!

    ReplyDelete
  24. uh-oh! now, you know men can't take laughter at the mighty sword! LOL
    I can't watch it either -- even if I could get sidetracked by the tight abs. it's just too silly.

    the sweater around the neck thing - I wonder if in real life it's also to reveal who the prick is? cuz really, who would do that? You have to really think you're all that.

  25. The one time I went to the store in PJs (it was very early on a Sunday morning and I needed milk, I thought no one would be around) and the store was packed! I was so embarrassed, I don't even put the trash out in PJs anymore!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I agree with most of these! I don't hide vegetables in my food for my kids because I want them growing up knowing what they are eating and what the actual vegetable tastes like! But I use spaghetti squash in place of noodles when making spaghetti...lol. i'm a bit of an annoying health nut.

  27. Pajama pants in public make me nutty...what, putting on a pair of pants with a zipper and a button is just too time consuming?

    I'm with you sister!

  28. Found your site from the #sitssharefest!
    Great list! And, I can't stand pajamas in public either. I just imagine the bottoms of them dragging on the ground, getting dirty, and then hopping back in the bed! Yikes!

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is great!! I wish selfies would go away, too.. And I feel like people are using it wrong, too. I thought a selfie was a picture you took of yourself - not just a picture of yourself.

    Annoying.

    Love this! :)

  30. Hey, that sweater look was high fashion in the '80s! :) I love that you are so real.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I hate to admit it, but I did try the sweater thing back in the 8o's...it doesn't work well. It keeps falling off and I like to be able to see my food, too!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. lmfao! Not only don't you do these things...you admit it!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh em gee! I agree 110% with you on ALL of these! Are we sisters from another mother?!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I kept reading to see if I'd disagree with anything. Nope! Although I didn't see Magic Mike...

  36. I wear sweatpants in public, but I draw the line with flannel or bunnies :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yes, yes, uh-huh, right, agree, agree...

    I have a vintage lifestyle blog so I am all about making sure one is appropriately dressed all of the time, not just when they are in public.

    And don't even get me started on the Magic Mike thing. I mean, seriously?? I've never understood the hollering and whooping it up by sensible women the moment a male stripper starts doing a routine. Do these ladies think the men are really interested in them (See Matt Bomer, for example)? /rant

  38. I always tied my jumper around my waist when I was a kid, never my neck.

    I NEVER wear pjs in public but have seen women wear nighties as tops.

    Selfies existed before phone cameras, we called them photos taken with cameras.

    As for men, their jiggly bits need to stay tucked away!

  39. This is brilliant!!!!! I share the bed with the hubby but for the love of all that is holy do NOT put your leg all over me..... I am 5 foot he is 6 foot 2" I would be smooshed...

  40. That wheat pasta stuff is NASTY!

    ReplyDelete
  41. What? It is a real thing to tie sweaters around your neck? Why? I would never "hide" vegetables either...would I make an entire dinner out of vegetables YES because I love them immensely.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I don't get the wearing of PJ's out in public, unless you are going to a sleep over - that goes for adults and kids!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thank you, yes. I would only add the selfie w/ duck face. For the love of all that's holy, why?!

    ReplyDelete
