Humpday Confessions.... That time I got confused....

Vodka and Soda

The other day I was scrolling thru IG and I came across this picture of this person and I was blown away. The eyes were just like mine. Then I realized it was my daughter's IG... duh they are essentially my eyes. My teenage daughter took a pic of her sister floating in the pool with her face out of the water. It totally freaked me out.

I was recently in a meeting with a "person" who said, and I quote... "I have never met anyone as smart as I am in my 57 years." And was dead serious.  I wanted to throat punch said person. 

I finally made one of the appointments that I have been putting off... with my cardiologist... stupid BP issues. I'm going today. I love this doc but I am afraid he is going to give me hell  for staying away so long. And not losing any weight since the last time I was there. Ugh. He won't but I am afraid he will. Irrational. I have two more appointments I still need to make to get all caught up on health stuff. I am always afraid that I will go in there feeling basically fine and they will tell me all sorts of things are horribly wrong with me. So I put off going. Dumb.

You don't realize how much noise one human can make and/or generate by their very presence until they take a vacation for a week and the office is virtually silent. And heavenly peaceful.

If I went to the Emmy's I like to think I would be this... 100% perfection

And not this.... head to toe FAIL

These people have stylists to dress them. What in the actual fuck happened here. The funny thing is it is the same concept... a statement skirt paired with a simple white top. Yet still so horrifically different. 

I haven't exercised in like a week and I feel insanely bad about it. Especially scrolling thru my Insta feed and seeing  shit like this. Some of the Fitness accounts are really starting to irritate. I mean I'm not a Navy Seal. 

And speaking of the Emmy's I didn't watch the VMA's either but I loved Katy Perry and Riff Raff (one of my faves) spoofing Brittney and Justin from way back. Sadly I am sure many viewers are too young to even remember that Brit and JT were once even a thing. But really who could forget this?

My birthday is 2 weeks away and I am seriously considering starting the month long celebration of my birth next Monday, the 1st of September. Because I can't pack in all the things I want to do to celebrate another year of survival in one day.

One of my fave Top Chef alums has a very well reviewed restaurant here in Atlanta and it is on my birthday to do for me list... Gunshow. But it ain't cheap.

He makes something with pork belly on the menu every night for God's sake. 

And he looks like Yukon Cornelius. Who I secretly kinda dig... a bearded, ginger who loves bacon. 

Happy Humpday Fools:)

Linking up with Kathy!


  1. hahaah i kinda laughed at everything in this post.

    Those eyes! Holy crap.

    That womans stylist needs to be fired.

    I love the spoof! I dont think a lot of people got that right away.

  2. oh thats embarrassing that people might not get the brit and jt throwback.. hopefully they didnt think they dressed like that for fun!
    oh what gorgeous eyes! jealous of you both lol.
    um both of those emmys outfits though - that one girl 'fail' like what was she thinking?!

  3. Your eyes are gorgeous, so are your daughter's!

    I love the denim duos. So awful they're awesome.

    I celebrate my birthday all month every year. It never occurs to me to do it differently.

  4. Is it weird that there is a HUGE part of me that wants JT and Brit to get back together? I mean, come on! They were the king and queen on my childhood! HA! Also, your eyes are beautiful! Wow!


  5. We visited my SIL in Atlanta last summer and went to Gunshow and it was freaking awesome. Kevin (we call him Beardy in my house, like he's an old friend) is my favorite too. It's such a cool concept. My FIL paid and we ordered nearly everything on the menu to split between the three of us and that considered, I didn't think it was too bad (though it could have gone up since then). His previous restaurant was amazing too! I'm super bummed that my SIL moved so now I have no reason to visit again anytime soon :(

  6. Beautiful eyes just like mom :) I loved him on Top Chef and really isn't everything better with bacon.

  7. Uh - I'm a firm believer in Birthmonths, not just Birthdays... so you should start the celebration as early as you want!

  8. i had no idea the emmys and VMAs were on! do the birth month celebration!!

    thanks for linking up!

  9. Ummmm seriously though that picture! Gorgeous!

    Oh I mean who could forget Brit and JT and that coordinated outfit for real?

  10. I haven't worked out in a few days either and I can't barelystand to look at my Instagram feed. Is EVERYONE at the gym or posting inspirational quotes?? Seriously.
