#icant + #iknowican

#icant believe the week is over already.  I feel like it went by too fast and I missed it.  T.G.I.F. though!

#icant get over how truly offensive 'SELF' magazine was to publish the photo mocking a cancer survivor's marathon tutu outfit!  Holy frikken hell!  I'm no marathon runner, but my BBFF is and she looks damn cute in her marathon outfits!  I'm sure the runners who wear outfits know it doesn't make them run any faster - it's just about motivation and fun.  Shame on SELF for making such rude comments and lowering the self-esteem of women!  Bullies.

#icant stand reading generic comments and emails.  Copy&paste shit doesn't fly around here.  While it may give you flocks of new followers, it still doesn't mean you're a good blogger.  How many of those "followers" actually read your blog?  I'd rather have 2 genuine comments from people who actually take the time to read my post than 1,000 comments saying "Great photos!  Let's follow each other?"  Especially when it is an all-text, image-less post!

#icant help but feel uninspired lately.  I want to do/make/craft something...but I don't know what yet.  I've been on Pinterest all week, but my light bulb is still burnt out.

#icant stop stressing out about everything going on this weekend.  I'm still at work, there's a game tonight, we're having a garage sale tomorrow and I still haven't gone through stuff yet, the annual Merizo Crab Festival is this weekend, and Joey's birthday is on Sunday!  I feel like I won't have any time to relax all weekend.  Just thinking about it is making me exhausted.

#iknowican put together some kind of post schedule.  I feel like I need more structure around here so I've been looking into planning a vague post calendar each month - just so I have something to look forward to and work towards.

#iknowican do something about my hair this weekend!  It is wayyyyy too long for my liking and I'm fed up with it already.  Anyone got any tips on how to maintain and style long hair?  It has to be something VERY easy because I have zero patience when it comes to hair.  That just ain't my thang.  I still want to go purple though.

 #iknowican re-organize and de-clutter my closet this weekend with our garage sale!  I've been slowly getting rid of things through Poshmark, but it's just a tiring process to sell one item!  Thankfully, Joey's sister had the idea to have a garage sale at my house to try to get rid of everything once and for all!  She's got a lot of stuff to get rid of too (including home goods and furniture) so hopefully it'll draw some attention...and MONEY!

#iknowican get back on track with my workouts.  I've been sleeping early and waking up late but I still feel super drained all the time.  I think March has just stressed me the fuck out.  At least it'll be April soon.

 #iknowican finish a few of the things on my "home improvement" list this weekend.  Last weekend was fantastic because we got our washer working so I had fun washing clothes and giving the laundry a kick in the ass.  This weekend I'm hoping to do some light gardening, add to the gallery wall, paint, and fix up the living room and rearranging my bedroom.  Maybe I'll even have the girls cut some wax paper circles so we can do this project for their room:


  1. posting on a schedule is what saves me and what allows me to post. the only time official blogging day off i have is thursday and friday is optional.

    oh and those follow me and i'll follow you? DELETE. don't have time for those biatches.

    happy friday!

  2. Agreed with Kathy on the follow me biatches. None of that!
    Purple hair would be awesome, dooooo it!

  3. I so agree with you on the generic comments that really are only intended to hopefully gain more followers. ANNOYING to the max. That crab festival sounds so awesome! I totally hear ya on the whole not being able to relax all weekend thing. Since I'm so busy at work during the week, wedding planning is mainly done on the weekends...SOOO zero days off for this one. And you should totally dye your hair that purple so I can live vicariously through you! :)

  4. How many of those "followers" actually read your blog? I'd rather have 2 genuine comments from people who actually take the time to read my post than 1,000 comments saying "Great photos! Let's follow each other?" YES TIMES A BAZILLION TRILLION GAJILLION! There's a HUGE difference between followers and readers.

  5. I had no idea that SELF magazine did that to that cancer patient. That is fucked up big time.
    I usually just like to do my hair in a messy top bun. I watched Zoella's video on youtube, and it's actually pretty easy to do!
