a little more about me | 5 things that drive me angry

it's no secret. i'm a pretty particular person. i get irritated relatively quickly but usually try to shrug it off with a snarky comment and a smile. it comes across bi*chy.

you should have seen me when i was pregnant.

nobody was safe.

all you had to do was ask me, "how are you feeling?" and you could count yourself off my friend-list.

super gracious. i definitely glowed.

and by glowed i mean i had a little raincloud over my head for nine months. a real treat to be around.

so i was saying…i'm pretty particular. so i thought it might be fun to bring you my five top pet-peeves (as of late).

but first i wanted to remind you of two things -
1. you still have a chance to get in on the may action for the group giveaway. just click on my advertise page and choose your ad space. enter code 5 FRIDAY for 30% off…because i love you 5 on friday-ers.

2. last saturday was my first installment of guest saturday confessionals with September FARM. it was brought to you by katie from yellow mango life. check it!

if you would like to submit a saturday confessional guest post just shoot me an e-mail and we'll get you scheduled!

okay…now for my 5 pet-peeves:

1. people who saunter across a crosswalk. or people who casually walk in front of your car in general…say in front of a supermarket. this ALWAYS happens to me at target. no please…walk more slowly. i wasn't going anywhere. in fact, i like to sit in an idling car.

move your ass.

2. keeping with the traffic theme…anyone who drives under the speed limit. ain't nobody got time for that.

move your ass.
3. using "your" when it should be "you're." "your" is possessive. "you're" means "you are." these are two totally different things. same goes for "their," "they're," "there."

get with the program and stop being grammatically lazy.

in the same breath…please don't judge me for my lack of capitalization or typos or grammatical errors or my overuse of the dot dot dots…which i'm sure are plenty.

4. people on sidewalks or running paths that walk two or three people wide. they see me coming the opposite direction, yet they don't stack up to make room.

no problem ladies. let me steer my forty pound jogging stroller into these bushes here so you can keep chatting. and it's always ladies. never have i had a man run me off a running path.

5. smokers in public. i get especially perplexed when it's 90+ degrees out and i see someone outside sweating their balls off…and what do they do? light up. huh? this seems like a total oxymoron to me.

mmmm…so hot outside. must put a burning stick in my face.

i don't get it, clearly. and i also don't get why my health has to be jeopardized. but above that, why KAYE'S health has to be jeopardized. she doesn't know to hold her breath when we walk by a smoker. guh. this is most definitely something that will never be solved.

but guess what…it's friday. and fridays deserve to be left on a positive note.

our sweet farm house is under attack by mice…again. i spent the better part of 30 minutes standing on the arm of my couch while my farmer declared his war. pray for us… #farmproblems

go get your link on!


  1. NUMBER ONE. Oh man, it's so annoying. Especially when you stop to let someone cross when you don't even have to and they just freaking saunter slowly without even so much as a nod.

  2. I cannot do mice....girl, get someone out there and fix that problem stat! However, I do relate, growing up on the farm and all.

    And grammatical errors - totally annoying. I'm no English major and you know I love me some "..." but come on. Just take quick moment to think before you type. I mean your just sitting on that they're couch, ain't you?

    Anything car/ driving related - total rant mode for me. Slow drivers in the left lane, slow walkers...and I count my running paths as traffic - so you better agree I will stay on course for as long as I can before I have to swerve BECAUSE THEY JUST WON'T MOVE! It does scare them a bit and for that I definitely feel a bit better.

  3. OMG those people dragging ass across cross walks literally KILL ME. I got into instant b*tch mode - like please walk slower, it's not like I was going anywhere! You would especially love where I work (college campus) where lovely teenagers just step out into traffic like they deserve to walk wherever and we cars just need to stop for them. ERGGG

  4. hahahah YES. MOVE YOUR ASS!

  5. OMG you crack me up! I totally agree that people should move their asses!! AND one of my pet peeves is when I'm walking down the street off my neighborhood road with my golden retreiver and a double jogging stroller for my son and the little girl I babysit for and a car sees me, but does not slow down OR move over so they don't clip us. If it wouldn't hurt me I would so kick their car. Don't be a jerk people!!!

  6. My best friend was the same way while pregnant. I had to stop her from defacing some high schooler's car with lipstick and penises after they stole her parking spot she had been waiting for. She was entertaining though.

  7. all of them! haha. the smoking perplexes and grosses me out. the driving slowly? i swear i screamed so loudly at the car in front of me this morning and she heard me, and moved. your fault for doing 25 in a 45, bitch. ok, calm down. lol.
    also, i totally look down on people when they use the incorrect your / you're etc, but then the same as you 'please dont judge for all the other things' haha. i rarely use caps when commenting, and im sure there are typos galore. at least i've got my your's right! haha.
    have a great weekend lovely! Kristen @

  8. ha ha. I am right there with you on the slow movers!! I myself was not a pleasant person to be around while pregnant. ;-)

  9. Okay so you are absolutely hilarious. I am definitely following you now, because I think that this blog is the comic relief that I so desperately need! Haha! :)

    Have a great weekend!

    You need a cat. No more mice!

  12. I think we might be the same person...all of these things make me C.R.A.Z.Y too! Haha. I dedicate entire blog posts to proper grammar! Lol.

  13. You know what drives me insane, websites with links that don't open in a new browser, aghhhh, I don't want to go to another page, I just want to open it at the same time :P


  14. I also HATE when people walk so slowly in the parking lot. My cousin sent me one of those pictures once that said "Knees to Chest Bitch, Knees to Chest!" So now I think of that every time and silently yell it at them.

  15. Pedestrians, watch out around this lady! ;)

  16. Some days I read your posts and I think we are seriously the same person! I agree 100% on all of YOUR pet peeves ;)
    I see this girl that works across the street from me go out and smoke at least every 30 minutes. Rain, snow, freezing ice, 90* days, etc. I just don't get it! And I can't take the smell! UGH!
    I just had a similar problem at the grocery store where I couldn't get by a family that thought they should be walking three wide in the aisle! Mom was on one side, dad on the other, and their poor 8 year old kid was pushing the cart. Of course I was stuck on every flippin' aisle with them. I said excuse me so many times in that trip...and they never did move!

  17. I was an English major, so I might be a member of the grammar police. Oops. I can't stand the mix-ups of those words! Happy Friday! xo

  18. I had to laugh at this post, I agree with the driving situations. As you said, move your ass!!

  19. I have to agree on almost all of these!

  20. You and I have the snarky comment thing in common, people just don't understand our humor I suppose. :) We live out in the boonies and have had our share of mice, they are no fun, good luck!

  21. #4 YES. and people with their umbrellas walking down the middle of the sidewalk who don't bother with the "slight umbrella courtesy lift". oy.

  22. I swear I'm about to run people over who run in the middle of the street! *points* I make it a POINT to run on sidewalks or if I'm in the street and a car comes, I get over! I can't STAND that! Also, I promise I just started using their, there and they're correctly ohhhh 3 years ago... whoops!

  23. and now with the e-cigs its just obnoxious!! I wish restaurants and stores would ban them like they did real cigs!

  24. My current annoyance is dressing rooms that only have 1 little teeny hook. Look, stores, if I'm there trying on clothes it's because I have left my child at home with his dad and I am on FREE TIME, so I'm not trying on one dang tank top. I grabbed about 700 things and I need 10 hooks for all the ones I don't like... and 1 hook for the one dang tank top that looks good, okay???
