Rants+ Raves

Hey you! How was your weekend? Mine was so busy--I'm exhausted typing this and it's only 7pm! I hope you enjoy this week's Rants + Raves:


  • This week's Glee episode--for some reason, there was a narrator who announced everything that was happening, leaving me not being able to catch most of the dialogue. Belle said maybe it was for the vision impaired? It was so distracting. I just wanted to watch the ep and sob, and couldn't. This didn't seem to happen for anyone else. Oh, and the same channel is currently announcing NFL in Spanish. Hm.
  • I had a lot of friends in town this weekend, and fell off the eating well and no Diet Coke wagon. You know how some people drink or smoke socially? Me, I'm a social DC drinker. I'll be back to eating right and drinking more water tomorrow.
  • Being a slacker when it comes to blogging--this isn't like me at all!
  • UGA lost. Here's to next week!
  • It seems like all of my new followers lately on Instagram are selling wraps, skin stuff, shakeology, jewelry, their closet, whatever the latest "thing" is...I understand we're all trying to make money, but where are the real people? ;) 
  • Seeing a bunch of friends I've not seen in ages for a pre-bday celebration--so much fun. I'm so tired! 
  • Having a couple of unexpected days off--yay!
  • Having an extremely clean house--it just feels better
  • Getting my hair done--I swear that can make a bad day better.
  • Feeling completely at peace with myself and the way I look...for one day. I get so dang self-conscious posting pictures of myself, especially on Instagram, but for that one day, I wasn't. It was great!

What are your Rants+Raves of the week?


  1. Don't be too hard on yourself... I feel off the eating well wagon this weekend too and I didn't even have any friends in town! ;P Are you sure the narrating isn't a TV setting that got accidentally selected?

  2. Yay on all your raves. And as for that Glee thing, u probably figured this out, but this happened to me one time on one channel, and it was because of the TV setting. I did have CC on:O

  3. I'm getting back on the eating well and drinking more water wagon tomorrow too. I've been awful! I hope I can stick with it.


  4. If it makes you feel better, I didn't love the Glee episode that much as it was (I think my expectations were too high). But maybe you can watch it online so that the commentary is off? Oh, and a clean house always makes me feel better, too! :)

  5. I was literally sobbing during the entire episode of Glee :( It was such an amazing tribute, I really hope you get to watch it properly soon!

  6. Have to agree having a nice clean house makes you feel better mentally:)

  7. Nothing better than a really clean house! As to eating clean: I also always eat horribly 'socially'. Any tips for avoiding that?


  8. Seeing good friends for a pre-b-day celebration + unexpected days off--sounds fab!!! Enjoy!!! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  9. All your raves are amazing doll! Nothing better than a clean house and some oldie but goodie friends <3



  10. Getting my hair done makes me feel SO good too! Definitely the world's best pick-me-up.

  11. omg im TOTALLY a social DC drinker too... i only get it when im at a restaurant with other ppl. ah well, happy monday elle and enjoy those days off! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  12. I wish I could only be a social Diet Coke drinker!!! I drink way too much of that stuff...

  13. I hear ya about Instagram! Time to unfollow some.
    I'm ranting about my daughters being sick this past week. Waiting for the doctor to call us back w/options.
    I'll rave about.... cleaning the clutter off my dresser. I can see the wood again!

  14. We're all allowed a slip up, but I'm glad you're choosing to stay away from Diet Coke. That stuff is so bad for you!!

  15. Getting your hair down is one of the best pick me ups!


  16. Raves I am a paper book girl but lately I've been loving my nook!

  17. getting pampered (hair, nails, massage etc) always brightens my day!

    Vodka and Soda

  18. I'm a social dessert eater! I eat "clean" until I'm around friends and then bam, bring on the chocolate and anything that's bad for me.

    I get aggravated with all of the sales pitches, too. I think there's a fine line between working to make extra income, and just annoying people because you're a walking advertisement.

  19. i hear ya on a clean house...it makes EVERYTHING ok :)

  20. Uh oh, I'm the guilty "sell my closet" instagrammer ;) Oh and I so need to get a haircut, I need to book that this week! It does make life so much nicer!
