Hot Mess Confessions

This is the second month in a row I have had a Wanderlust post scheduled but never got around during the ENTIRE month to put the pictures in the post. get another round of confessions and at some point I'll start talking about traveling, lol.

This is kind of a hot mess, so hold on tight.

I thought about putting my blog on a hiatus for two reasons...I had a deadline get moved up THREE weeks, which luckily I'm taking a 24 hour road trip moving my sister back so I'll have some time to get the bulk of it done. The other reason is I've really wanted to re-design my blog and I thought if I gave myself a date to get both of those things done it might actually happen, BUT I couldn't imagine not posting.

Last night S and I were talking about Man Buns, and we were saying some funny stuff. I told her this is what podcasts and Youtube channels are made of and she ended up recording the quality isn't all that great but she sent me the file to play with and see if I can get something good out of it.

Apparently with these man buns, which I find attractive on SOME men, have started sprouting double man buns. Just, no.

A very small piece on my phone case broke so I took it off and while the rational side of me wants another one, the other side is liking being able to see the pretty gold so I'm tempted not to replace it. I mean I have the apple plan so I could get a new one if this one breaks for not a bad price.

We're flying Allegiant up to Omaha to move my sister down and tickets are cheap! We only paid $86 a piece, one-way. Yes, you have to check a bag or pay for a "carry on" if you're traveling solo but we're all using one suitcase and each get to take a personal item on. I have two bags that are the right size for the personal item and I love traveling with the leather Twilight one, lol.

The worker at Starbucks this morning tried to ask me for .60 more cents and I was like...what did you charge me for? I had plenty to cover my drink on my card which I always get the same thing so I know how much it costs. He sprouts off a bacon gouda sandwich and I don't dabble in the cheeses so I was like "what the hell is a bacon gouda sandwich?" Do you ever catch yourself coming off as rude and then repeat yourself all damn day to see how you could have sounded a little nicer.
Lesson: Don't catch me off guard and try to throw an expensive breakfast sandwich into my morning order. It just isn't going to be pretty.

I know I shared that awesome meme about Pumpkin Spice flavored things coming...and I think it's awesome because I'm a fangirl about other things BUT I think I'm one of the few people that doesn't like PSL. I love how people get excited for it, but it just doesn't lend itself to my palate. Now, peppermint mocha on the other hand...I buy that any time of the year at Starbucks, lol.

I was going to start talking about the good, the bad and the business of box swaps but I think I'm saving it for an ENTIRE post.

Why do I find the need to capitalize ENTIRE every time?! Lolol

Ohhh! I have started saying LOLOL and am surprised nobody had called me on it so I Google'd it. It means LOTS of LOL, awesome!!

Did I tell ya'll that I'm going to end up with my sisters cat? My dad is allergic and if we move in together after my lease is up I'll have to live with it anyway. #tobehonest I'm NOT a cat person and never really have been. They're cute sometimes, but I can admire them from afar...just like babies.

Speaking of animals, I was at Petsmart looking for a dog toy for Boomer and they had the Halloween ones on sale BOGO 50% off, aren't these all so cute? Boomer loves his stuffed animals.

I get on these confessions and I get on a roll!

I'm still doing the Neti Pot a couple times a week...trying to make sure I don't end up with anymore sickness. I'm still not 100% but I'm like 98.9%, holla!

I pin all these posts like When to Post to Instagram and How to Increase Your Blog Followers and I'm all like...screw it. I'm going to talk about ME! I wanna talk about I! #namethatsong #namethatartist

Peace out.


  1. You are a riot! Hard to pick a confession I didn't like - but the $86 flight is amazing! xo, biana -BlovedBoston

  2. I want to talk about me, want to talk about I. My number one is mine, me, my. What I think what I like..l wanna talk about me by Toby Keith. It was actually written by Blake Shelton.

  3. I looooooove man buns!!!! LOVE!
    The good thing about cats is that they like to be on their own too a lot! lol

  4. I don't care how to increase my numbers anywhere. I don't even pin them anymore.

    I've used LOLOL for a while. I rarely just LOL.

  5. I do the same thing at Starbucks. I get the same thing every day and know how much it costs and if it is a penny more than (the already super expensive $4.08) you are going to catch a major attitude, lol!

  6. I love toy shopping for my dogs :)
    LOLOL is what I'll use now too.
    You're not alone. I'm not a fan of PSL .. give me chai tea with pumpkin added in that.

  7. Hahaha the man bun. The single is ok on some but the double is just a no for me. A hell no. And um bacon gouda sandwiches are awesome, just FYI. He was doing you a favor! I have used lololol for awhile. It's awesome. I think Gracie and Mac need some Halloween love!

  8. i had no idea LOLOL meant lots of laughs, i always think 'laughing out loud out loud out loud' hahaha.
    um that is ridiculous about the starbucks sandwich! i always get a hot chocolate, or a 'mocha cream frap' which means no coffee, and sometimes they charge me for coffee even though i specifically say no coffee and they get all huffy 'why'd you order a frap' and i'm like OMG is it so god damn hard to not put coffee in my drink!

  9. I love pumpkin flavored deserts but not lattes - they are gross! Now starbucks pumpkin muffins with cream cheese...that's the goods! That is the only time I go to Starbucks is for those. I walk in to see if they have any and if not I walk out the door!

  10. Haha I would have been the same way at Starbucks, like wut?? I know exactly how much my order should be because I get the same thing every time! Aww cute dog toys! We can't get those soft toys for our dogs because they destroy them in about 5 minutes, LOLOLOL! ;)

  11. Ugh I hate man buns! BLEH! Can't wait to hear what you guys said about them, haha.

  12. Not a fan of the man-bun! And I definitely agree with you on the PSL... I didn't have a single one last year, in fact I was hooked on their chai-tea latte last fall - YUM! And I can definitely come off the wrong way when I'm caught off-guard... whoops!

    Good luck with your project, and have fun on your trip moving your sister down :-D

  13. Don't feel bad-- I just posted a travel post I've wanted to post since the end of May! haha And I am not a fan of the pumpkin spice lattes either-- or pumpkin anything for that matter!

  14. I like the man-bun. Can't help myself. I also liked it when Jared Leto had the Jesus look. I've never been one to find the uber-convential guy attractive. My husband is probably the most "normal" looking guy I've ever dated! Your "peace out" pic is adorable!

  15. haha the man bun is cute tho just admit it. Also I used to pin posts about growing the blog and all that and then I just got angry with those "experts" and decided to just blog about whatever the heck I want to blog about.

  16. I would have been cranky at the Starbucks employee, too. You have a right to pay for what you want and not be charged for anything else.

  17. I have been thinking about a hiatus too but i would miss everyone. You gotta do what you gotta do though. If you like man buns you have to check out BrockOHurn on Instagram, he has the best one ever! I am not a fan of PSL either so I would rather not see it everywhere just yet.
