You may not know...

Wednesday, October 9, 2013


1. I loathe chevron. Yeah, yeah. You were cute with your stripey goodness for about five minutes, but really? Why do you want something in your house that everyone and their Pinterest-poppin' mother has?  If I see one more set of mustard-colored chevron curtains, I will lose my marbles. I just don't understand the obsession. 

2. I really like lists, which you might have gathered from the format of this blog post. I may be checking you off later, so check yourself before my pink highlighter wrecks yourself.

3. I don't like dogs. If you've been around the ol' blog, you probably already know this. I get it, kinda. For the most part, they're cute and cuddly. But where is the return value, my friends? They shed. They poop. They bark. They need attention. Grahm could argue that I do all of these things as well, I suppose... but yes. I will be one of those stone cold mothers who deprives her children of any puppies.

4. My favorite movie of all time is Forest Gump. Seriously. It makes me laugh; it makes me cry; it makes me want to eat a box of chocolates. Last year for Halloween, Grahm and I went as Lieutenant Dan and Forest. It was sorta epic. Try to top that with this big ol' preggo belly is gonna be a tough one, folks. Suggestions welcome.

I don't get chevron either. It's JUST a freaking pattern people. Like stripes, or polka dots or anything else!!!!

I LOVE puppies, but 1. I'm allergic and 2. I'm lazy and don't know if I actually want to clean up after one.

OH MY GOSH your costumes were brilliant! I bet yall come up with something great for you and your belly... there are so many possibilities!

Ashley said...

Best costumes ever? Also, I don't like dogs either, and everyone always makes me feel like such a jerk when I admit it. Glad to know I'm not alone :)

Sarah said...

I like chevron, just like I like stripes, or polka dots. I'm gonna call this an appropriate likeness of patterns in general.

Rachel said...

OMG that costume is amazing!!

Yeeeah I definitely don't get the chevron thing either. Especially on clothing. Blahhh it's just SO overdone and I don't know. Not a fan. Ummmm what I AM a fan of, though, is that halloween costume from last year. haha you guys definitely nailed it!! Hmm a good preggo costume is always Juno? Although it's kind of already done multiple times and stuff, so you know. :/

xo

Those costumes are amazing! I'm excited to see what you come up with this year. I'm trying to convince my husband to do a couples costume with me this year, but it's hard finding something we both want.

Chevron was cute for the first week it came out and now I am so tired of it too! Give it a rest!

Erin said...

Holy guacamole that seriously is an epic outfit. There are some really creative ones to do with a belly though, I'm sure you'll think of something.

But now I'm off to boycott you about the dog one.

Heather @ From Here to There said...

That is the GREATEST Halloween costume I think I've ever seen! I do enjoy the chevron pattern, but I also don't think I've taken it out of control. I don't have it all over my house or my blog or my clothes, I enjoy it occasionally.

Jay T said...

I love chevron, sorry.

And I agree about the dogs. Fur drool poop smelly inconvenient...all the bad words.

YOU HAD THE BEST HALLOWEEN COSTUME I HAVE EVER SEEN.

Nicole said...

OH.MY.GOSH...BEST Halloween costumes ever!!! That is priceless!

The Lady Okie said...

Um, how do you get your legs to bend like that?

Emily said...

I could not agree more about dogs. And since the last of my siblings moved away from home my mother has replaced us all with dogs. That she goes ga-ga over. Why dogs?!

Holly said...

OMG HAHAHA those costumes are awesome!!!!!!!!! That is the best movie of all time!!! And btw, chevron pattern isn't fun anymore when EVERYONE has it, right?!

Kayla Peveler said...

I don't get the chevron obsession either, I know girls who have it on EVERYTHING. Yeah, I own a BLANKET but that's it...I'm not covering my home in it!! ;) glad we are on the same page. Bahah

That is the most EPIC COSTUME EVER!!!!!

Becky said...

I don't know what's the obsession with chevron either!

Hmm I'm one of those totally obsessed with my dogs person so ill just skip over #3 :P

Holly said...

Forrest Gump is BY FAR my favorite movie--my family quotes it pretty much every day. And that Halloween costume is EPIC!!! I'm sure you'll think of something epic-er for this year :)

Rachel said...

I own nothing that chevron, purposely. I always boycott things that are popular. Including dogs. I'm not a pet girl.

A Life Less Traveled said...

I love that halloween costume photo. I love Forrest Gump and can watch it over and over.

Thanks for commenting on my blog!

I don't know how people don't like the movie Forest Gump, it's a GREAT movie! It never ever gets old and that halloween costume is awesome. Also, do you not like pets in general or are you more of a cat person? I get being a cat person because they are like 100% more dependant than dogs. However, I am a totally crazy dog person. I don't like their poop at all, though. I'll agree with ya there!

Audrey @ An Aud Blog said...

That Forest Gump costume is amazing! I also absolutely love that movie (have since I was a little kid. But, why was my mom letting me watch Forest Gump almost daily?) I also always called Lieutenant Dan "Lieutenant Damn".

Pamela said...

OMG! Yalls costumes!!! hahah! LOVE!

Emilie Bordeleau-Laroche said...

Bahahaha!!! Best costumes ever!!

Jenna said...

lol I have two dogs and I could honestly say that I think I was crazy the day I thought it would be a good idea to a puppy let alone two!!! I am reminded daily a I vacuum the part of the house they are allowed. That's right I vacuum 1/2 my house every single day or the hair gets out of control.

Katie said...

oh my gosh. that Halloween costume is the best. I like chevron but it annoys me lol
