Why I Don't Wear Lingerie


A quick story on how non-observant my husband is. It all started Friday evening as we were preparing to go out with a group of friends for a birthday party [see photo above..I am a firm believer that nobody should have to enter any building // home // etc on their birthday without some sort of awesome thing smacking them in the face prior] so long story short, I put on the dress that you see above. As I was garnishing our counter top with wine, vodka, rum, and all other necessity's for our guests arrival, Shawn says "your midriff is showing!" Quickly I reply with some sort of loving comment like "no kidding idiot, I wore this to dinner with you in California and you took several photos of me in it for my blog." Another long story short, he still had no idea that the dress ever had any cut-outs in it when I wore it the first time around. And now you know why I never wear lingerie. So much for bringing sexy back. 

Additional photos and details of our weekend to come. I'm off to go dance around our house naked and see if anybody notices.

  15. on a scale from 1 to 10, homemade mac n cheese is a 10 because I will eat that stuff even though I should not eat anything with dairy products. I will not endure the consequences of mac n cheese in my body for stovetop or microwave mac n cheese only the oven-baked mac n cheese.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  26. ummm 11? Mac n cheese is like my favorite thing ever, I regularly discuss its wonder on my blog. And I am a big fan of making it in about a million different variations, simply because of its amazingness.

    ReplyDelete
  27. LOL...Macaroni and Cheese would get a 10 in my book.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I feel like I'm the only one that's not going to give it a 10+. Haha. I love homemade mac & cheese so so much, but boxed mac & cheese-- i have three kids... we've eaten a lot of mac & cheese over the years so it's just not as much of a love as it used to be.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I do not like macaroni and cheese unfortunately!

    ReplyDelete
  30. That is hysterical - how did he not notice! And about mac and cheese - I think it is about an 8 but there is a local place that has a crab mac and cheese that is definitely an 11!

    1. Oh I didn't see I had to put a number, I don't think it's a ten. I'd rather better food like chicken piccata over ziti lol but it's about a 7/8.

  49. 10. But if I am trying to cut calories I try to lie to myself and say things like ew Mac and Cheese: I'd rather lick the sidewalk. Typically these lies fail.

    ReplyDelete
  54. 6 maybe a 7! Like, but trying to avoid it for the sake of my waistline!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm going to say a 1. I know!!!!!!! What is wrong with me?! I'm a terrible person. It is just not my favorite thing. I love cheese and pasta but ick to mac and cheese. Maybe because my Mom shoved the box powder stuff down my throat as a kid. I need help.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Homemade mac n cheese 10
    store bought 1

    ReplyDelete
  57. i try to stay away, but i love it! 10 for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Depends on the type. Usually about an 8.

    ReplyDelete
  59. 10 if it's homemade, a 7 if it's boxed.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Depends. I don't have to have it. like a 6, maybe?

    ReplyDelete
  61. This just means your husband prefers you naked! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Mac N Cheese is always a 10. 1-0. T-E-N. D-I-E-Z. D-I-E-C-I <---- And now you've had your Italian lesson for the day. Also, I think tonight's dinner has been chosen for me...with a side of red wine of course...oh, to be an adult ;)

    ReplyDelete
  63. I totally understand about the lingerie. I dyed my hair a couple weeks ago and it took my husband about half the day to notice it and his actual comment was "did you do something different to your hair?".

    8 on most day. 10 if I just ate clean for more than 14 days in a row.

    ReplyDelete
  64. 10! It's what I fed the kids and myself for dinner tonight

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'd give it a 9. Technically, it could get an 11, but the cottage cheese it gives my thighs makes me deduct a few points.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I LOVE it. Actually, it might be for dinner this week. 10!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Mac and cheese is a 10 for sure! especially because it is an easy go to for the kiddos.... and is delicious of course ;)

    ReplyDelete
  68. a 10 if it's homemade…yummmm!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Mac-n-cheese is always a 10, and sometimes an 11 :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. On a scale of 1-10 I give it a 10! I LOVE mac & cheese.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Pretty sure mac and cheese is more than a 10...but on a scale of 1-10 it's totally a 10.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I'm weird - I only like the Kraft Mac & Cheese in the blue box. I know, I know

    ReplyDelete
  73. Men are non-observant (is that a word?) You could probably do the monkey whilst eating mac & cheese and he wouldn't notice. I don't know what the "monkey" is, but like...ya know...dancing like a monkey?!

  74. On a Scale of 1-10 can I say 100? I actually just posted about my new mac n cheese recipe here:http://lacymeeker.blogspot.com/2014/04/new-recipe-its-my-favorite-mac-n-cheese.html 2 days before this post was put up…I LOVE MAC N CHEESE

    ReplyDelete

  79. 9. I love mac and cheese! It's even better when it's in shapes! :P

    ReplyDelete

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
