I Confess....The things I don't understand edition

I confess sessions typically happen when I've had a particularly interesting weekend or I'm hard up for content...I'll let you guess what motivated today's post. 

I confess....I don't understand how people sell used  Lululemon clothes on ebay for like 90 bones. Let me introduce you to something called reality eBay sellers. I don't care if it is a discontinued item - it's a freaking workout top - I'll sprint over to the Target and buy their LuLu knockoffs before I spend that much on used, sweaty clothes. Gross! 

I confess....I don't understand how some bloggers take weeks off from blogging and then come back. I get so nervous ya'll won't be here anymore if I ever did that and you'd be all like "Ashley who? Oh...she's been exiled from the blogger community." And man, I would miss you all. 

I confess...I don't understand why people only text back "ha." Like, was my comment not funny enough for that extra ha to make a full-rounded "haha?"

I confess...I don't understand the "my boyfriend/husband is awesome and I'm so thankful for you baby" posts on Facebook. I'm talking excessive posts here....I get it every once in awhile but, like, can you not look to your left and just tell him to his face?
(and before I get nasty "anonymous" comments calling me names that should only be followed by a bar of soap....this post is meant to be humorous.Roll with it)

I confess...I don't understand how people cook entire dinners in a single night. If it's anything outside of grilling fish or chicken, it's a multi-night ordeal for me. Dinner that was started on Monday might eventually be consumed on Wednesday. Now that is wife material right there.  

I confess...I don't understand how I can be so dissatisfied with my hair color and then the day I make a hair appointment, it looks amazing. It's definitely a hair conspiracy. 

I confess....I don't understand how after grinding with a nearly-naked-Miley Cyrus, grabbing a 21-year-old's-bedonk and having rumors of an open marriage, that Rob Thicke and Paula Patton are getting a divorce.

Just kidding...I totally understand that one.

Ahhh Confessions are good for the soul

I'll never understand why people pay $90 for a shirt. No one is going to know or care it is lululemon. I'm thrifty and a budget girl, so I do most of my shopping at the clearance racks at Target and Walmart and shop at Goodwill. I don't buy workout clothes. Haha.

We cook full meals at home. Most of my recipes take less than 30 minutes to cook and with the prep; 45 minutes top.

LOVE this post! I was looking for colored work out pants this week on ebay and couldn't believe how much used clothes were! no thank you! and the mushy posts - seriously? just tell them yourself!

Shannon said...

when you dropped off my feed for a few weeks, I thought you were gone forever and went looking for you.

luckily, it was just a bloglovin glitch.

i'm glad you don't leave us...

The Pink Growl said...

yes on the workout clothes, yes on the facebook stuff! I'm cracking up over here!

P!nky said...

Girl I feel you on all of these!!!


Brooke said...

lulu is my love but it's too expensive. and i'm probably guilty of the facebook posts, but I'm just in love: ) and who are these people who cook a dinner in a night? they are crazy.

BLovedBoston said...

I wouldn't buy a lulu top, pants or anything for that's just to darn expensive and I'm sorry the CEO is sort of obnoxious when he said our pants were made for skinny people!! the ecard is spot on...I obsess over things I have 0 control of...ahh the joys of being a woman!! Funny as usual doll!

Katie said...

Love!!! And who sells used workout clothes anyways?? WHO BUYS USED WORKOUT CLOTHES? Crazy people.

Also, super shocking that someone with an open marriage ends up breaking up. Super shocking. Never would have predicted it!

Whitney said...

my absolute favorite fb posts are "my #mancrushmonday #mcm goes out to my amazing fiance because he is the best" (same goes for #wcw) FIRST OFF!! of course that is your #mcm/#wcw, thats why youre marrying/dating/cohabitating with them and SECOND!! you told us last week, and the week before, and the week before that. no need for an excuse to post a picture of you two on insta anymore, just post the dang picture!

Maggie said...

This makes me laugh! I am totally with you on the lululemon clothes. i don't get spending that money.

I am absolutely guilty of the not blogging for weeks though thing. I think about it and then just don't do it. I should probably work on that :)

Navia said...

I agree with the workout clothes deal. I do not understand for the life of me why someone would pay like $145 for a pair of pants you're going to get sweaty and nasty in. Oh, and I'm totally that blogger you talking about who goes MIA (not like anyone notices anyway.

Young and Fabulous said...

hahahah omg the workout clothes!! GROSS!!

i took some time off and i worried THE EXACT SAME THING!!! hahah hopefully they'll still come back :-)

the Facebook thing. YES. the cooking thing. YES. heated dinners is where it's at some nights!



Sarah said...

Used Lulu? Are those people serious?

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

I just don't get Lululemon in general. I love nice things, but I just can't bring myself to spending that kind of $$ on workout clothes. Target and ON have me covered for much less. And used work out clothes? "Ewww" - in my best Summer Roberts voice.

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

bahahaaha! the whole robin thick ordeal...not surprised at all.

and i used to think that about full meals. part of it has to do with trying to find the easiest but tastiest recipes! i'll share them with you if you'd like. ;)

Alex said...

1) As a blogger who does take weeks or months off from blogging, I have indeed lost most readers. Cest la vie!
2) ha is totally condescending to me. Not that hard to type an extra ha!
3) Excessive bf/husband posts on Facebook make me want to vomit. It has caused me to hide people from my newsfeed!
4) Robin Thicke and Paula Patton's split was the least shocking thing ever. He's soooo slimy!

Sara Louise said...

I confess that I agree with every single one of your confessions (except the cooking one, cooking is my jam) like 100 million%
