Things I {don't} Love Thursday

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

I've been having a lot of fun doing Things I {don't} Love, so I made it a linky!

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. Older celebrities getting really bad plastic surgery. It seems like I've been seeing so much of this lately! One of my friends even commented on it on Facebook yesterday. I saw Bette Midler in a commercial for this new movie she's in and her eyes were super squinty looking and her face looked majorly tucked & pulled pretty tight.
 Then I saw Olivia Newton John on Ellen. Oh dear. I loved her in Grease! She was aging pretty nicely I thought...until now.
{don't get me started on John Travolta's fake hair}

2. People over-spending on Christmas. I'm not saying it's bad to spoil your kids once in a while. But don't go broke doing it! I've heard of so many people who are barely making ends meet and they stress themselves out so much this this time of year about money and about getting their kid everything he/she wants for Christmas. There's nothing wrong with scaling back if you need to. You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars on toys and junk that are just going to end up broken, or that the kids will get bored with in about a week or two.
{this will not be me this year!}

3. Sons of Anarchy being over until next season. I'm so bummed! One of my favorite shows. The season finale was last night...I won't spoil it for anyone, but this picture is from one of my favorite parts that had me fist pumping & cheering for Jax Teller!

So, what are you currently not loving? Link up below and let us know!

  1. I watched that Ellen last night and OMG...both of them just look so different and EW. The clip of them in Grease just made me sad. They were both so pretty and hot and now they are just blehhh. Bette isn't nearly as bad as them.

    Also completely agree on the going broke thing. I think we maybe spent $150 on the kids, but I was smart and did it over time, so we didn't kill ourselves trying to get them. I started in August. I can't imagine spending hundreds on them like tons of people do. It's ridiculous.

  2. i too am obsessed with sons of anarchy! bahaha john travoltas hair. xo annalizbeth

  3. Love that you changed it to things you don't love--all of which made me laugh!!

    Don't forget, the giveaway going on at Cotton's Pickins ends at midnight!

  4. Personally, I don't get plastic surgery.. most of the time it doesn't make someone looks younger, it makes them look the same age, but with plastic surgery haha.
    And I am so with you on not over spending on kids! I don't have any kids, but I know family members who do it.. and It's just not worth putting yourself in financial hardship for.

  5. i hear you about the over-spending. it's probably easy to do with kids and wanting to give them everything.
    but i would be happy as a clam to eat and rink with my family!

  6. I wrote about SOA too!!

    And yes. People going broke over Christmas? Worry about your bills people! Your kids do NOT NEED toys. They NEED bath water and food. Idiots.

  7. I need to write this link up down for next Thursday.

    John Travolta's hair is flipping insane, and Olivia NJ is scary looking.

  8. I am not a fan of the blatant plastic surgery either. I hate that our society puts all this pressure on celebrities to be perfect, as well as on the average citizen. Then average citizens feel the need to look like celebrities and we just have this really nasty cycle going that is terrible! Let's just age gracefully, together?

  9. I am so bummed about Sons of Anarchy being over for the season, too! We love the show and are trying to figure out what will happen with Tara! And isn't Jackson just the cutest thing ever? I love him!

  11. I agree 100%!! Especially about the older celebs with bad plastic surgery. I liked Bette just the way she was.. it gave her character but now she looks like her face is so tight it hurts! I prefer how celebs like Diane Keaton own their age and the character lines that they've acquired over the years. :)

  12. I agree about the way people spend money at Christmas. I think it is better lesson for the kids if they have to have a "tight" Christmas at least one year.


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