Vodka and Soda

I don't even know what to do with myself, blogging for the third day in a row (even though the past two days I was using prompts) I'm pretty proud of myself.

I confess...

...I kinda feel weird about posting gym/workout related selfies on instagram, like I feel that people are judging me. But then I also think "I really don't give a shit" and I post anyway. Some people probably think that I'm just doing it for attention, and in a way, I am. I mean, isn't everyone that posts anything on instagram just looking for some likes and cool comments? If you say you're not then you're a lying liar that lies. So what if people get annoyed by it because...

...I can't stand when people make up their own hashtags and they're the only one to use them (i.e. for their child, dog, etc). It doesn't bother me when people do it for weddings because that's basically what a hashtag is for... to be able to see what other people are posting with the same tag. But whatever.

...I got some REALLY FREAKING AWESOME news at work yesterday except I'm not allowed to talk about it because nothing is "official" yet and I'm supposed to keep everything "confidential" until it is such. So really this isn't a confession, more of a tease, but I'm freaking bursting at the seams here.

...I keep thinking Derek is going to propose literally any second... and then he doesn't. I really am trying hard not to be annoying about it but when you say certain things and drop certain hints, it kind of gets a girl's heart strings all twisted and hopeful.

...Sometimes I ignore phone calls from friends that I know are going to talk a long time on the phone when I'm  having a lazy day at home. Even if it's been a long time since we talked and even if I do want to talk to them. If I'm laying on the couch watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban for the eight hundredth time, you can bet you'll get forwarded to voicemail. Sorry, not sorry.

...I really (really really) want a kitten. So bad I can almost taste it. But then I remember that I have a cat (and dog) that are currently living with my mom and I feel guilty because it would be like replacing them. But I really really want a sweet baby kitty.

...I am counting the minutes until Friday afternoon when I get to go visit my parents and my Aunt/Uncle who are in town and I haven't seen in over a year! This will be the first time Derek meets them and I can honestly say I'm really looking forward to it.

Got any confessions? Link up with Kath, from Vodka and Soda!

Girl, your newest selfie is freaking awesome. There's no way you shouldn't show that off! As for the not there proposals, I went through the same thing with Nick. It was so frustrating!

Cece said...

I started following a lot of body builders because I've started lifting and they are obsessed with their bodies because they are freaking buff and hot (I would be too) and they spend so much time creating it so there are lots of selfies. I always feel really self conscious about it to so I haven't but maybe I'll start!! I feel bad but I don't pick up the phone sometimes too for that very reason. Talking on the phone takes up so much time!!!

Even though your after gym selfies make me feel really lazy and kind of bad for not being more active, I think you should definitely keep posting them because you've put in tons of hard work and deserve to show off the your results! Sometimes I ignore phone calls too. Talking can be hard.

Kristine said...

I ignore phone calls all.the.time. The only person I really talk to on the phone are my parents and my other half. And even with those folks I don't care to talk on the phone. Because I'm rude like that.

The Rachael Way said...

I do the same things with phone calls. Like, sometimes I don't want to talk. lol

Helene in Between said...

post those gym selfies!! i wish i posted them, but i never go. bahaha jk. kinda. that proposal thing is HARD. just try not to think about it, it's fun when it's a surprise!

Alexandra Stacey said...

I have been doing the phone thing too! I'm glad I'm not the only one! :)

And I totally feel you on the proposal thing. My boyfriend had to go "shopping" the other day and I almost died.

the Florkens said...

I'm totally with you on the phone call thing. I do that too. Sometimes, especially if I just got done with a workout and I'm tired, I'll just let it ring and then I'll text them immediately and be like, sorry I can't talk right now... Held up at work or some crap like that. A TOTAL lie, but I don't care. I like to be lazy.


Kathy @ Vodka and Soda said...

i'm a serial (phone) screener because 1) i hate talking 2) if it were really important, text me and 3) i hate talking.

thanks for linking up!

don't ever give a shit about whether people judge your for your gym photos. They don't know shit about shit anyway!

Kayla MKOY said...

I'm with you on the hashtags. I understand one or maybe even two, but I know a girl who will post a picture of her child with like NINETEEN hashtags after the actual caption. #noonecaresaboutyourhashtaggirlfriend ;)

I hope you get a pretty diamond soon ;)

Waiting for my husband to propose to me was the most stressful time ever. I was on edge for the longest time.


Chasing Elephants said...

I love your gym selfies + they always make me feel motivated! :)

Sarah's Spiel said...

I ignore phone calls too... the worst part is when I think "oh I'm busy (also read: to lazy/tired) to talk so I'll call them back later.... and forget to call them back. oops.

Brittney, Breaking Free said...

OMG im the same way with my bf like he will say or do something out of the ordinary and I think this is it...and then its not :(

Kenzie Smith said...

That is really awesome about your confidential exciting news! Yay! Kittens are too freaking cute for their own good. I've been wanting one, but our dogs don't like cats. Boo. Also, don't ever call me while I am watching Harry Potter. My friends know better than that ;D

Brittany said...

the wait for the proposal is miserable. I'm there with ya. I wish they would just do it already.

I'm guilty of making my own hashtags up!! My niece was just born and I am so excited everything I do I am hashtagging lol
