Things I {don't} Love Thursday

Thursday, December 20, 2012

It's Thursday, which means it's time to link up with me & spend a few minutes venting on Things I {don't} Love Thursday.
I should point out that this isn't meant to be a super negative post. It's just a kind of fun way to rant & make light of the little dumb things that annoy the crap out of us! You can not-love could be a TV show, a pop culture event, a work thing, a person, a place, etc. If you've got something you're currently not loving, this is the place to link up!

So what am I currently not loving?

1. Not being able to find a cute jacket in December. Oh, cuz you know, if you're looking for a winter jacket in the winter you're much too late. You snooze you lose! Everyone's shopping for bikinis in December, right? It's so annoying! Everywhere I went the jackets were completely clearanced out. I couldn't find anything except an abundance of 3XL sizes. I guess I'll buy my winter jacket in July like everyone else in 2013.

2. Not being able to stay awake to read. I'm slacking on my GoodReads 2012 reading goal. I've been trying to catch up and read every night but my eyes just won't stay open. Sure, I can stay awake and watch hours of Bravo & Teen Mom, but the second I start reading I'm suddenly losing consciousness. I wish I could spend as much time reading as I do wasting time staring at the TV.

3. Copycats. Seriously? If you're a blogger and you have to steal someone else's material you are really pathetic. Not just stealing someone's general idea, or jumping on a trend or something that "everyone" is doing...but blatantly ripping off people's hard work & creativity? I would expect more out of a self proclaimed "super mom." Tsk tsk.

So have fun, be social, & link up! 

Also, don't forget about this giveaway!!!


  1. Did you check Macy's? My Macy's still has a full coat section out!

  2. lady - EXACTLY on the reading and the television. bravo literally forces me to stay awake till 2AM.

  3. Great post and definitely not negative :) I have the same problem falling asleep reading! I may have to admit defeat on my 2012 goal and focus on next years plan :D


  4. I have been awful with reading the past month and a half. I just started The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D. last night, and it's reeled me in, so I'm hoping that kicks off a renewed reading bonanza.

  5. I'm fairly new at this, but what do you mean by stealing? Do people just straight up copy and paste other people's posts or just steal ideas without giving credit?

  6. I'm looking forward to spending time with my extended family!

  7. I'm slacking on my reading goal too! I'm chalking it up to my idea of reading gigantic books this year! Plus watching countless hours of bad tv after work always seems more appealing.

  8. I'm looking forward to being done with finals and going back home to Alaska.

  9. Ohhh, I love this link up! I will have to remember to join in on the fun next Thursday. BTW, I found your blog through the Secret Santa link up and I must say, I'm a little jealous about the cookies that you got! Just looking at them was making me hungry this morning! Mmm! And by the way, you are absolutely gorgeous lady! :)

    Happy Holidays!

  10. New follower, from blog hop I love my post.

  11. New follower from the “I love my post” blog hop. This is such a cute idea for a link up! I'm loving your list of things you don't love. :) I went to Target tonight and they seriously do have bathing suits out already. It's crazy!
    And of course you can stay awake for Teen Mom & Bravo shows. There's too much fast moving drama to fall asleep. :)

  12. Hi! I found you on the blog hop and am your newest follower. I was kinda sorta maybe hopin' that you'd pop on by my blog and follow me back!



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