Things That Aren't Black & White To Me [Unlike This Outfit]


When sitting here drinking my 4 o'clock coffee thinking about if most spouses make out and cuddle or not, I started thinking about other things that aren't clear to me. My mind tends to work in mysterious ways. Why might I be thinking about such a thing right now? Don't ask. Okay fine, you asked. You see - sometimes when I try to go in for the kill Shawn tells me that my body is too hot. Like not hot looking but temperature hot. Apparently I radiate heat like no other and it drives him crazy. I feel like I'm constantly reminding him that "THIS GIRL IS ON FIIIIIIIIIIRE" but he doesn't see it as a redeeming quality. All of this to say it got me thinking about things that aren't always black and white. Coincidentally enough, I stumbled upon these photos from my Dropbox folder circa June 2016 and well, this whole blog post came together full circle. Let's get started. 



- Does every single person have THE HARDEST TIME coming up with an Instagram caption or is that just me? It clearly makes or breaks the photos. Do you stick with just emojis? Write something witty? Write a novel that has some deep meaning? Or do you say "screw it! not posting this!" 

- Are you always expected to wash your hands after peeing? Like what if you know without a shadow of a doubt that pee didn't get on your hands? 

- Is hiding a credit card bill from your husband considered lying or is it considered saving ones life?

- If one has cellulite on their legs and notices it in their photos, should one use the wrinkle remover feature on PicMonkey to hide that fact just a little bit or leave it untouched? Not saying I've ever done that [today] but you know, hypothetical question. 


- Are you a terrible human being for sometimes wishing you could witness a person on stilts hit the deck? 

- Those people who eat healthy 24/7, do they feel fulfilled in life? Like I get that they look good and don't have to worry about that whole cellulite editing feature but is shoving a dry piece of spinach with a side of kale chips really make them feel like they are winning at life? Because last time I checked McDonald's fries are freaking amazing. 

- Speaking of spinach, does not telling somebody that they have something in their teeth make you a bad friend or are you a bad friend for saying something and embarrassing them? 


- If you accidentally have two margaritas instead of one and you accidentally get a little tipsy, is it your fault or the margaritas fault?

Time out. I need a margarita.

- If you don't work at the dentist office are you still expected to floss your teeth? Certainly not right?

- Are robes supposed to be washed more than once a month or what is the general rule of thumb on that one?

- Is not doing anything considered doing something?

outfit deets // top [found it to be true to size, wearing a small], similar shorts [these came from stitch fix], wedges [currently 33% off making them less than $60 - holllllller]

And that concludes today's not so black and white thoughts and questions. Any of these same things considered a grey area in your world?

  1. Got me thinking some deep thoughts about the cellulite thing. For one, aren't we as women supposed to embrace reality and owning our bodies for what they are, and frowning upon the perfect, photoshopped media that's out there? ... But on the other hand, is it different when it's our own body in our own picture, and damn if we don't want to look as great as possible if not in real-life, then on the Internet?

    We all would want you to keep it real, because integrity and honest is always best .. but if I were in your shoes, hmmm tough call! I think you're gorgeous either way :)

  2. Your random thoughts make me LOL, because some of them are so valid. What is the rule of thumb on a robe? I was doing a sniff test on mine today to see if I should wash it haha. I also wonder if people who eat healthy are fulfilled because I've been eating salads everyday this week, and I'm still hungry and not fulfilled when finished.

  7. I have problems with Instagram captions too! And a recent discovery that I have cellulite - I was horrified but glad to hear I'm not alone. (I think I kept telling my husband: I'M TOO YOUNG FOR THIS!) I'm a firm believer in hand washing- so my response would be e'ry time. I usually remember to floss at inopportune flossing moments - in addition to "Crap I forgot to wear my retainer for the last year..." If anyone gives you the answer to robe washing, I need to know. I think I do every two weeks...but there is no consistent schedule.

  13. Uhh... I can't remember the last time I washed my robe (although I don't really ever wear it either). I do floss religiously. You win some you loss some.

  14. haha! i can't do mcdonalds fries anymore but yeah, life is about balance. like, i demolished a huge plate of nachos a few days ago and i could have just eaten a salad, but YOLO...

  15. Ok for real... do couples really make out and cuddle? This could be a blog post all of its own. I mean, yeah you do in the beginning and then at what point does it wear off and you no longer want to cuddle and make out? and does that make you a bad person? are you sucking at the relationship? Like I don't have time to make out anymore - I need to mow the yard, take out the trash, do 3 loads of laundry, AND I'm still supposed to find time to work out. We cannot make out.

    Or is that just me?

  16. I literally laughed out loud reading this post because I feel like I have a lot of these exact same thoughts. Too hot to be cuddled, I often feel confused on why I need to wash my hands after peeing, and I feel certain that people who constantly eat healthy are unsatisfied with life. Fries are worth big thighs?! And don't get me started on Instagram captions...I get so flustered and especially if my husband is watching over my shoulder.

  17. it's absolutely the margarita's fault.

  19. Again, this is one of the biggest reasons why I love your blog :) made me giggle out loud. Word on the washing hands every time especially when I KNOW I didn't get pee on em' Oh and Mickey D's fries are everything!

  20. What do you do about a bra with a top like this? Adorable, but I hate strapless bras and hate going bra-less oven more!

    If your hand even comes close to touching the toilet (lifting the lid, flushing) then yes, you must wash your hands. Sorry :)

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 :)
