10 things

10 Things that I Hate(Strong Word) Don't Like

If you do any of these things, I'm not trying to insult you, just saying that I don't like them for my self. 

1. Men who wear wedding bands before they are married. You're not wedded yet, therefore you should not wear a WEDDING band.

2. People who make everything about their lives public on Facebook. T.M.I.

3. People who constantly write Facebook posts about how much they love their significant other "I love (insert name here) so much! He/She is the best (husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend/fiance/neighbor/cousin) ever! No one else has as good of a (blank) as I do! I'm so lucky!"
So happy for you. By the way, do you ever tell them this to their face? I'm not saying that I'm not guilty of this, but there are times when it's okay(birthday, anniversary, etc) but when it's everyday...stop. now.

4. That my husband hasn't taken our TV off retail store mode yet. We've had it for over a year. I know nothing about TV's, but I know that every time it turns on, it says "Your TV is in retail store mode." I don't actually hate this that much, because I don't even know the difference. The message is just annoying.

5. How crabby I get when I'm stressed. I have a final due tomorrow, we're going out of town on Friday so I have to do all of my weekend homework now, and I have a test tomorrow that I haven't studied for. Oh, and I'm just coming off "that time of the month," so I've been a real pleasure to be around lately. Sorry husband.

6. I'm starting to really like country music lately. My whole life, I have been anti-country with the exception of Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood. Lately, I'm so tired of all the "popular," songs sounding the same and the radio stations here sucking, so I've resorted to country. And I like it. Who am I??

7. My scale. Enough said.

8. Everything I cook/bake lately isn't turning out. Part of it is for a grade, so when it doesn't turn out, I get more stressed(see #5). My final tomorrow is for my Confectionery class, and I have to turn in a bunch of candies. In the last 24 hours, I have made candied orange peels, chocolate almond cups, marzipan roses, nougat, chocolate filligree(see #7), Hawaiian chicken, and rice(not for the final).

9.My kitchen looks like this:

So excited to clean it. 

10. I am on a soccer team and we had our first game last night. I haven't touched a soccer ball for 2 years(no joke), and I am all kinds of sore today, especially in my abs and back. I choked earlier and started coughing. It felt great.

Erika, BREATH! It'll all be okay :) P.S. country music is wonderful, I never really got into it until I met Clayton, now I like it more than he does!

Words that may be comforting:

I still think you're an amazing cook, even if some of your attempts don't work out.

My kitchen looks like that every other day.

A lot of country music actually talks about life, and is semi-indistinguishable from pop sometimes. I just listen to a song and decide if I like it. Genres are immaterial.

Stress is icky! Pray to perform your best and to not stress, and then work hard and do your best. =) You'll get there.

Sore muscles mean you're getting in shape =)

Hope at least one of those made you smile. Oh, and if you hate people gushing about their kids and hubbies, you might want to unsubscribe from my updates. My kids and hubby are the best part of my days/life, so I gush a lot =P =)

LUVS, Erika!

Truth-my kitchen looks like that most days too haha. Thank you for the good advice :) I am taking it to heart! And I've never felt like you gush about your kids and hubby. Maybe it only bothers me with certain people?

Breathing! Country music is totally growing on me. It speaks to my heart! Haha!

You are hilarious! Maybe I'll see you this weekend, since Ben's graduating too!
