Day Sixteen

We are halfway to the end guys!! Woooo!!!! So today is something or someone you could definitely live without. Not this is an easy one. I could definitely live without Pintrest. (If you have never heard of this site or been on this site do not, I repeat DO NOT click on that link. You will be sucked in you will NEVER. LEAVE.

Reasons why I could do without Pintrest:

It’s addicting. Like seriously. It’s like someone injected meth into you every time you looked at the site so now you feel weird and incomplete without it. It’s like you find no color or happiness in the world without Pintrest. It’s craziness. Plus it has some amazing projects on there that look so fun. And money saving tips. And yummy food.

The projects and recipes. You will never, and I mean never, be able to recreate the beautiful masterpieces that you see. It’s impossible. My recipes just turn into unflattering masses of food. They may be delicious but the plate does not look near as good as those professional,edited pictures. The projects on the other hand. They just go horrible wrong. It’s depressing.

The amount of time wasted. I spend hours, HOURS on Pintrest. That time could be better spent thinking up fun things for you guys, or watching Supernatural, or reading a book. There are just so many other things I could be doing instead of looking at work out regimens hat make me tired just thinking about them, delicious looking food that will never turn out that way, and entirely too expensive clothes that I will never wear or be able to buy.

So. I could definitely do without Pintrest. It does nothing but depress me by causing unreal expectations when it comes to fashion, cooking, looking skinny, make up, and “ingenious” projects. Will I make the decision to beat my addiction? No, probably not. It’s just too amazing!!

Now, this is designed to make you and the people who read it learn some pretty interesting things about you. So let’s jump right in, shall we?

Day Numero Uno:

Something I hate about my self… Hmmm. Well, I’m obviously going to say the things most women say. My size. I weigh the same amount I did the day my youngest son was born. (No, I won’t tell you! Don’t you know it’s impolite to ask a lady her weight?! Gosh…) I cannot get over that fact. My husband, as great as a man as he is, doesn’t see why I’m so uncomfortable. But when I go into a local thrift store (that only buys name brand clothes that normally sell for like $70. For a shirt) and try on clothes one of three things happens: one, doesn’t fit my boobs (sorry, I’m not a B cup and I can’t flaunt my cleavage at my office…); two, if it’s a dress, it’s too short (again, sorry about my amazing cleavage that takes up so much material, and sorry about my not so awesome butt that takes up just as much material); three, it’s one of those awkward half shirts that ends like at the top of my belly button.. (Sorry, my kids didn’t think I needed to wear cute shirts like that ever again.)

So. Who is up for this awesome challenge?!
