You Like Leggings?

Someday I will write a full post about blogging and how grateful I am at all the things I've gained as a blogger.  The very top thing is the people that I've met.  One of my favorites is the lady behind http://www.venustrappedinmars.com.

I remember seeing her blog early this year and I had actually learned about comments.  Day after day, she writes about things that demand my reaction.  She has kind of BLOWN UP in the last few months because she's hilarious and gives girls some great advice about the world of sports and many other things that are important in life.

She has the best tutorials in all of blog land, the post that made me want to light all of the candles in my house just to fit in with those Lululemon girls (see my favorite post ever) and the drinking game that my husband and I might play every time we need something to do and we turn on baseball - baseball drinking game.  I'm sure you all know her, but I hope you love her like I do.

P.S. You like leggings?  Duh, we are best friends forever.

Hello classy readers, I'm Sarah from Venus Trapped in Mars. These introductions on guest posts are always so awkward. How rude would it be in real life to not say hello, and not introduce yourself to a room full of new people? I get super uncomfortable when I'm in a group with someone I've never met, they've never met me, and no one is introducing us. Instead of paying attention to what anyone is saying I sit there and plan my attack on this new person.

It usually goes something like....

Friend: So my dog has to have surgery and he will be under the knife for several hours they are worried he may not ma-------
Sarah (while interrupting friend that is speaking about her poor dog): HI MY NAME IS SARAH I HAVE NOT MET YOU YET. WHEW GLAD WE GOT THAT OUT OF THE WAY. I CAN'T CONTROL THE VOLUME OF MY VOICE WHEN I GET ANXIOUS. SORRY FOR YELLING.

So anyways, hello. I'm Sarah. WHEW GLAD WE GOT THAT OUT OF THE WAY.

So miss classy pants Steph has been one of my blogging friends since the day I started. She is so kind, funny and without a doubt a cool kid. I'm confident we would be best real life buds if we lived in the same city. As you know, Steph hosts a weekly linkup all about gratitude. So I want to come play and talk about 5 things I am grateful for.

1. Giraffes: Well, Steph seems to think that I have an obsession attraction to Giraffes, and her assumption is totally accurate. They are miraculous creatures full of love and lettuce. God really outdid himself with this creature,  and for that I am eternally grateful.

2. Pinterest: What things I have learned from Pinterest? All the things. I have learned all the things from Pinterest.
3. Read Receipt on iPhone: I love you read receipt people. But really, do you knowingly have read receipt turned on? Were you just hitting OK, over and over and over again during the setup process without actually reading what it was asking you? I can't fathom why you would leave that turned on, when the rest of the population turns it off for the sole purpose of pretending like their iPhone wasn't in their hands all night long. "Oh no, I didn't get that text about helping your great grandmother's dog move into his new dog house. I must not have had my phone on me for the past 76 hours."

4. Microwaves: Otherwise, I'd starve to death. On a related note, special shout out to string cheese and individual bags of baked lays. Thanks for aiding in my laziness on the daily.

5.  Leggings: How did women get so lucky? I have sweatpants that aren't as comfortable as the leggings I wear to work. Billowy tunics, leggings and tall boots with no heel at all are considered fashionable. I love how put together and stylish we can look in the fall and winter months, yet not feel an ounce of discomfort. You go Fashion coco.

Case in point. So come visit my blog! I'll be the one wearing leggings, petting the giraffe, microwaving something I saw on Pinterest and judging you for having read receipt turned on.   

Dear Venus,

You like leggings?  Duh, we are best friends forever.  

Love,
Your classy friend

  3. I love/hate read receipts. I like them when I want to know if someone read my text. I hate them because then you know if you're being ignored! Mine are always OFF.

  4. I love leggings as long as they are not worn as pants. No one needs to exhibit all their lady parts in the office without a long sweater/dress/tunic over them.

  6. The read receipt was the worse idea ever. On par with the Facebook function that tells people if you've seen a private message. Ughhh.
