***Own It***

Yesterday, lovely Elise posted a list of things that she 'owns' about herself. I found it empowering, intriguing and a lot of fun to read. So today, I'm linking up with here and sharing my list of things to 'OWN'!

[source]

... Sometimes, I don't shower after I work out because I'm too tired. I just shower in the morning and change my sheets.

... No matter how hard I work, I will never be as in shape as my two sisters.

... I can hold a grudge with the best of em.

... I am quite often, extremely too competitive.

... Confrontation is not my jam, but I'll get buck when I need to defend myself.

... I have a huge case of road rage. Trust me, I'm not a nice person on the road.

... I wish I had more patience.

... I hate grammar and botch it 95% of the time.

... Nine times out of ten, I'm caught talking too loudly. 

... Going out and drinking to get drunk is sooooo not on my list of fun things to do anymore. A glass or two of vino and maybe a lil dancing is quite enough for this gal, and I don't apologize for it.

... Nick & Jessica: The Newlyweds is still my favorite reality tv show.

... I talk in emoji more than a 30+ year old should.

... My body frustrates the hell out of me, but I continue to do aka eat the same things instead of changing my ways.

... There is no drive for me at work, so I just do what I need to, while watching videos and blogging. I know I should be doing more, but I really just don't care.

What do you own/confess?!!?

I'm so with you on Nick and Jessica - I like to pretend they are still married lol!! I have problems!! Also, same way about going out these days - it's just not all it's cracked up to be!! I actually feel like I have a staring problem and Gary always tells me on the train - "you're staring at people again" haha!

I'm about 60 days from terminal leave to get out of the military and I have no more fucks to give. Every Weds has become blog day. The entire time I'm at work, I'm reading confessions. I don't even care. I'll do required work if it pops up, but I save all the projects that are going to take longer than 10 minutes for another day. Not even sorry.

Loved your list- emoji conversations are just better. And I know that Nick and Jessica both have remarried and had babies, and I'm happy for them, but I still don't want to accept it and I will NEVER throw out my Newlyweds dvd sets…. just saying. ;)

Elle Sees said...

gotta admit, i love some grammar. not like diagramming sentences or anything like that, just writing/speaking correctly. i came from a redneck family in south GA, and if i can speak correctly, anyone can! ;)

Lara @ Cookies Cardio and Clothes said...

So funny, I was just looking for Newlyweds on Netflix the other day! At my last job I gave 0 fucks and now that I'm at a new one, it's becoming increasingly difficult to hide my blogging. Mainly because people keep wanting things from me. lol

Amanda {Kids and Cabernet} said...

I loved Nick & Jessica too! I still have the series and will watch it every once in a while! I'm the same with going out - getting drunk is just not fun, especially how you feel after - blah! And I posted the same about confrontation - hate it!

Kathy @ Vodka and Soda said...

going out all night long? nope, i can't handle that. by 9pm, i'm ready to call it a night!

I love this list! And I'm with you on so many of these. I still love Newlyweds too, even though it just doesn't feel real anymore to watch since they broke up.

Katie @ The Macarthurs Lately said...

I confess I love your blog! I was reading through your list and I'm like I'm pretty sure we were separated at birth! Until I got to the grammar one.. I'm a grammar nut! Haha! Oh and don't ever switch to Android, those phones don't have emojis.. I learned the hard way. (Insert sobbing emoji) Anyways, I love your blog so I've nominated you for a Liebster Award! Check it out: http://macarthurlately.blogspot.com/2014/07/liebster-award-nominations.html

Kristen said...

Illegally Blonde said...

I too blog and watch videos at work because I just don't care!

Allison @ Texas Mrs. said...

I used to pray for patience (because I am not typically a patient person),but then I realized God would test me. Haha! I love this post so much. OWN IT, GURL!

Mree said...

I too wish I had more patience and I do get bad road rage. To be honest, I stopped driving for a bit because my road rage was getting so bad.

Best, Mree

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

I wish I had more patience too... I'm literally the most impatient person I know and I hate it. I always try to change that but it just doesn't work. And girl, I feel you on the road rage thing!

<3, Pamela

I feel your pain, no matter how you hard I work, I am never teeny tiny like other people! Ahh!

Natalia { All the Things, etc } said...

I love this feature! I'm with you on the not always showering deal... it's just so. much. work!

Heather (My Little HEA) said...

Road rage for the win! Oh yeah, showering after working out in the evening is no bueno.

Nats ~Coral Tinted Perceptions said...

Oh I loved Nick and Jessica!!! I would definitely own that I am competitive, when I was younger I used to shy away from competition but now I just own it.

Kate said...

I am still in love with Nick and Jessica!! I can't part with my Newlywed DVDs just yet!! Stopping by from Elise's linkup :)

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

Guilty of the no shower and pass out.....I mean it would be so much less work if we just showered in the first place right?

Kenzie Smith said...

I love love love this post idea! My body hates me for what I eat, but I just can't stop. Ugh.

Katie Elizabeth said...

I feel like everyone has been talking about Newlyweds lately.. I wonder if you can watch it online/Netflix or anywhere?! I've been terrible at work lately, too. Especially with moving coming up and I'll be quitting = NO motivation!

Antoinette Musik said...

My goodness this post was hilarious!!

Elise @ Cheers Yall said...

I, too, have the series DVD set of newlyweds and refuse to part with it. Ever!!! That's good stuff right there. You rock! Your words are so inspiring, love!!! xx

Now if only I could add some emojis to this comment...;)

Angie said...

I agree, Nick & Jessica's show was the best :)

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

I'm the worst grudge holder too- its bad!!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

I looooove Newlyweds! I swear to you I was crushed when they called it quits! haha

Brenda @ Chatting Over Chocolate said...

Swinging by from the link up! Talking too loudly made my list too... I hear ya, girl! ;) Fun post! (:

Janna Renee said...

I totally changed my sheets instead of showering the other day. I confess: I have no clue how to use emojis. I downloaded and emoji app, and couldn't figure out how to get the emojis to the messages, lol. I gave up.
