a little bit loco


We all like to appear as though we've got our lives together. (Thanks, Instagram).

But by this point in my life, I'm fully convinced that none of us really knows what we're doing. We're all just on this weird journey together, and we're all a little bit crazy. Some of us are just better than others at hiding the crazy.

I am all for sharing my positive moments and highlight reels on social media. It's fun to look back at all the good memories. 

But every once and awhile it's nice to see that others are human, they're not as pulled together as they might look, and they have some straight up weird behaviors.

Let me just pull back the curtain for a moment and give you a peek into my crazy. Maybe it will make you feel a little better about your life.

1. I put WAY too much creamer in my coffee. It's like our whole culture is making this gigantic shift where we're all like, "Whole foods, natural is better, less ingredients, NATURE!" And I'm totally on board with it. I even try to make my own bread sometimes. But my one weakness when it comes to chemicals and processed food, the last frontier, is flavored coffee creamer. I. Just. Love it.


2. I just don't care about cars. At all. Like what even is a "hip" car? Are we still using cars to show status? I don't get it.

3. I only dust when company is coming over. Sorry, Mom.

4. I have to trick myself into eating vegetables. They just taste like nature, ok?
green smoothies are my main strategy for sneaking in some veggies
5. I need to go into the library with a game plan. I need a list, and I sometimes worry that I'm reading too much non-fiction, and not enough fiction. Why? Who can say?

6. Monthly budgets are my Everest. I have tried for 4 years to "balance my checkbook" and record every purchase. I'm convinced it can't be done. And why should I? We don't really even spend money besides groceries and toiletries, for which we use the cash system.

7. Ice cream every night in summer.

8. I don't really believe in germs that much. I mean, I know they exist, it's just that I don't care.

9. There is never not dog hair in my home or on my outfit.

Well, now that it sounds like my life is a mess, I hope you feel a bit better about yours ;)
