Things I {don't} Love Thursday- Linky Party!

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

A couple of weeks ago I started doing Things I {don't} Love Thursdays. A few people commented saying they would like it if this were a linky party, so that's exactly what I've decided to do! 

It's pretty simple: all you have to do is make a blog post about things you don't love, or things you currently don't like. It could be anything. You know how everyone does Things I Love Thursday? Just do that but think of things you hate. Easy peasy, right? It could be a pop culture trend, a beauty item, a fashion trend, a hairstyle, a restaurant, a book, a movie, a person (keep it clean people!), a song, a store, etc, etc, etc. You can do just one thing you don't like or you can do 20. Got it? Good. Make sure to follow me via GFC {under my picture in the left column}, add the button below to your blog or blog post {or link to this blog}, and then link up your Things I {don't} Love Thursday post! Make sure to follow me via Twitter as well so we can tweet each other about our mutual dislikes! :) 

Soooooooo, here's what I'm currently not loving:

1. Mid Season Finales 
Really AMC? How could you do this to me after it was getting so good? Yes, it's true...this Sunday {Dec 6th} is the mid season finale for season 3. That means we won't see Rick, The Governor, or that crazy one armed guy again until sometime in February, 2013. Lame! Merry Christmas to you too AMC.

2. Two ingredient Pinterest recipes
You've seen those on Pinterest, right? You know, the ones the say "Awesome! Only 2 ingredients! Super easy & soooooo yummy!!! Must try!" I have to admit that I was skeptical, so I decided to try one out around Thanksgiving. The one pictured above is supposed to be pumpkin spice cookies, made with only a box of spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin. Mix together, drop onto cookie sheet, bake for X amount of time, then devour. Mine went like this: Mix together, almost break your wrist trying to stir this thick ass "cookie" dough, drop clumpy spoonfuls onto cookie sheet, bake, take a bite, spit out in trash, dump entire tray of cookies into garbage, spoon leftover dough into garbage, and finally sit and be pissy that you were duped into thinking these things would be edible.

3. Target trying to be all fancy
Now don't get me wrong...I love me some Target. It's like one of the happiest places on earth for me, along with Hobby Lobby and Barnes & Noble. However, I'm kind of getting annoyed with some of these "fancy" high end changes Target has been making. I went to pick up a few kitchen items like a new dish rack, some oven mitts, and a couple of dish towels. I was shocked at the prices of the kitchen linens there! They only had 2 designer brands...that was it! There was no cheaper option or anything. I was not about to pay $5.99 for 1 dish towel so I had to go elsewhere. Boo Target! I love you but I can't afford most of your stuff now :(

  1. Love the idea of this post. We don't get Target here in the UK so I can't comment on that but I do know what you mean about the pinterest recipes haha

  2. Mid-season finales are ridiculous. Walking Dead and Revolution are two of my fave shows...and both are on midseason break. I think Revolution doesn't come back until

  3. Spot on with the pinterest two ingredient recipe malarkey.

    I've also noticed a rise in Target's prices.

  4. Target- you fancy? I hate that they are getting so mainstream with their prices. Like, you are just a fancy Walmart, not at Anthropologie lol.

    And yes, sometimes I really don't like the "easy" recipes/crafts on Pinterest. :(

    Walkind Dead. UGH! They are gonna make me have a heart attack.

  5. Hi there lovely Melissa, thanks for participating the Friday Chaos Blog Hop. I am following you right back and become your fan ;) lovely to meet you.


  6. girl - these crack me up, every single time because i know you are writing what everybody is thinking!

  7. First comment...
    I tried the "two ingredient" recipe too, but added a couple more things to make it edible - 1 egg and a dash of milk. I made mine in a bundt pan so it was more like a cake, but I've made it twice and it's been a hit both times.

    ...and yes! seriously?! to Target.

  8. LOL! Okay, I am loving this link up! But - I encourage you to try out the pumpkin cookies again! My mom and I made them as cupcakes as well and they were freaking DELICIOUS, especially with cream cheese frosting. Oh goodness, now I'm craving them.

    Stop by and say hi sometime --

  9. But wasn't The Walking Dead so good?! C'mon February!!!


I love hearing what you have to say! Comments make me happy.
