Why Is It?

Why is it - that as soon as you cut bangs, you don't want them anymore? (no, I did not cut bangs....I've just learned this lesson the hard way...many times)
makes me miss bangs... 

Why is it - That scary movies are allowed to advertise on prime time TV? Dude - Silent House!!!! How many more days am I going to have to put my hands over my ears and hum Jesus Loves Me?
 
I picked the foreign poster because I dont even want to know what it says 

Why is it - that rubberbands only come in packs of 500 or 3,000. However, you will still somehow find yourself with one rubberband hanging on by a thread that  you will guard with your life until you can buy a new pack of 3000. 
 

Why is it - That all the workout women on Pinterest look so toned and slightly shimmery when in real life you look like a sloth after a workout.....or this just me?

Why is it - That the Victoria Secret swimsuits never look the same on as they do in the catalog?
 
I'm thinking it's the pose but really....who does this on the beach?!

Why is it - That Starbucks can fit 700 calories in a 12 oz cup of liquid?
i want a starbucks in my town! 


Why is it that when you throw your hair up at night it looks AMAZING....but when you try to recreate it the next day, it looks like crapola?

What is it that's got you wondering today friends?!  


On another note -I have to wish my god-sister Angel a Very Happy Birthday! 
Love you!
 


MUUUUAAAHHHH!
XO, A

Haha, love it!

why is it that as soon as I wash my car, it rains?

So funny!
I'm always losing my hair ties and looking like a hot mess after the gym. And don't even get me started on the Victoria's Secret junk!!!

Faith said...

Hahaha too funny! I think the same about scary movie previews/commercials! I always have to turn away or leave the room!

Natalie said...

Hilarious. I share every single one of those thoughts. I'm pretty sure the VS swimsuits are actually painted on to look like the bathing suits they are selling.

I'm wearing a hairband that is barely a hairband b/c it's my last one... Afraid to sneeze today.

Why is it that a letter of recognition from my customers came in 15 minutes after my bonus amount was requested at work??

Katie said...

i love this and will probably come back and read them again today. i also wonder why the woman on pinterest only have to do an easy 20 minute workout to have a perfect body. and shoot i want bangs.

Whitney @ Everything Happens For a Reason said...

I totally feel you on the bangs. In the past when I got them,I liked them for like a week. After that, I never got them trimmed and just let them grow out. I'm always losing hair ties too. I keep one of my wrist at all times.

Seashells and Southern Belles said...

I am pretty sure I buy ponytail holders quite often but I legit use the same two all the time, bc the others are MIA, and yes, guard them with my life. and sooo weird you mention the hair thing bc last night after I got done walking (and listening to old school slow country while doing so) when I took my hair out of my ponytail it looks 10 times better than it did at work yesterday. Explain that... it was flat and no longer flipped out. I was going to tweet this, but the fact that my hair looked better after exercising just sounds weird. ha

Seashells and Southern Belles said...

oh and I meant to comment on the size of that girl's pearls in that bottom picture with the blonde ponytail. Wowsers. They are like golf balls in her ears yet I of course don't think they are too much, ha

Amy G. said...

I couldn't agree more with pretty much all of those statements. Definitely the scary movie one though! Ugh I can't stand them...even the previews. Talk about nightmares! Oh and I just finished running. Let's just say my face is red, hair is nappy and body is sticky :) Not cute at all! haha

Jen said...

love everything about this post. and the hair elastics... seriously, where do they even go?

the scary movie commercials drive me completely insane. I don't watch the movies for a reason (I live alone and am way too paranoid) so it's not cool when I'm just trying to watch tv and they play the commercials for them and I'm forced into being scared for the rest of the night. grr.

Erin said...

Wow, I was totally nodding along with each of these! I kinda' like that I look like a sweaty, red-faced mess after a work out. It's like my badge of honor-- YES I JUST KICKED SOME BUTT & BURNT LOTS OF CALORIES! ;)

Ps- My hair ALWAYS looks good when I'm "not trying".... the mornings, horrible flat mess.

Delilahgirl said...

Agreed on the scary movies comments... Limits my TV watching to cooking or travel channel :)
Completely panic when when pony tail holders stretch out or new ones snap!?! Seems like it happens a lot more often now. Kinda makes me wanna go back to the trusted scrunchie days???

Shannon said...

Oh hell yeah to the rubber bands. You buy a pack and you think you're set for like 2 years. Three weeks later you are completely out again.

Of course, I have two cats who eat them, so I have SOME excuse. :)

shay said...

oooh i feel ya on the first one. i always do that with bangs. i'm going for a haircut tonight, and thought about chopping it to shoulder length but feel like im going to regret it tomorrow!

Angel said...

these are all SO true. especially the scary movie one - there was a commercial for that amanda seyfried horror movie when i went to see a movie a few months ago and i was FREAKED out.
and my hair decides to look perfect at night.. every night.
thank you for the happy birthdays - i love you!!!!

Katie said...

Hilarious!


Why is it that the day you swear off junk food, there's a birthday party/some sort of junk food infused party at work?! seriously. killing me.

Sarah Elizabeth said...

I'm pretty sure we have the same thought process..because I can relate to 99% of these things!

Alex said...

Ugh don't get me started on the bangs. I decided to grow mine out, but now I want them back. When I do get them, I know I'll want them to go away. It's an endless battle!!

Courtney said...

All of this are SO true. Bangs=death. And I can make the cutest messy ponytail to wash my face at night only for it to look like a dead rat if i were to try the next day/

Alyssa said...

Oh my gosh, I can relate to so many of these! Especially the hair one and that stupid Silent House movie! Sometimes I'm scared to stay up and watch TV because they are so terrifying!

MessyDirtyHair said...

haahahahahahhahahaha i love this post!! the rubber band one, VS bathing suits & the pony tail at night i SO agree with haha! so freaking funny!!

Sami said...

Haha this cracks me up! I hate when they show previews for scary movies, ahem The Devil Inside Me, I almost peed my pants every time it came on!

Tabitha Mahoney said...

Oh my so true on the ponytail hair and the hair tie numbers. I currently only have the one and it's almost dead :(.

Happy almost Friday

Punctuation Mark said...

i can't do bangs at all... my hair is to wild for them!

allthatsgoldglitters.blogspot.com said...

These are so true! Every time that commercial comes on I turn my head the other way, but since I can still hear it, nightmares may still prevail.

Britt said...

I can agree with all of these!

Shayla Y.F.F. said...

Loves!

Why is it that the day I wear the "uncomfortable but totally cute" shoes to work ends up being the day that for some reason I have to stand or walk more than any other day?

Valerie Griffin said...

FUN post!

threadsandbuttons said...

Haha! I agree with you on so many of these points, especially the hair tie and throwing your hair up ones. I hate that I have to try SO hard to get that messy look during the day when I can do it in two seconds before bed.

Sara Louise said...

I always like my bangs for about five minutes and then I end up pinning them back, then they grow out, then I see Zooey Deschenal and decide I need bangs again. Repeat cycle.
I'm promising to break it this time. Must. Not. Cut. Bangs.

Raven said...

I freaking LOVE YOU HAHAHA to every one of these!!!! The bangs thing, oh have I learned that lesson the hard way like one million times. I ALWAYS tell my hairdresser that no matter what, if I beg for bangs, DONT GIVE THEM TO ME, because I always end up hating them one week later!

and the scary movie/covered ears/Jesus loves me thing CRACKED me up :)

Amanda said...

So I just found your blog through Julie's blog and I cracking up at your photo comments. Love your blog!

Sarah said...

It should be a crime that Starbucks can have that many calories. Cry me a river.... :(

And you're definitely NOT alone with looking bleeeh after working out. I'm a hot mess....but not in the 'oh she's hot' hot mess....hahaha if that even makes sense...

Jenni Austria Germany said...

i have tried to grow my bangs out 100 times..but i just can't do it. i have too much separation anxiety without them. normal, right?
