friday favorites: being an adult is not my favorite

It's really hard for my brain to comprehend that it's almost June. Like really hard. Like when I try to comprehend it I want to hyperventilate because I realize that by next Thursday it'll be 2050 and I'll be sixty-one. TIME SLOW DOWN. 

In other-but-still-related news, let's look at...

Milkshakes. That's all I've been wanting lately. A plain, ol' chocolate milkshake. It seems so easy. Go get a freaking milkshake already, Emily! 

Here's one reason why adulting is the worst: because you overthink milkshakes. Milkshakes, of all things! You overthink, second guess, and talk yourself out of them because calories, milk, bloatedness, and the fact that it's already hard enough to work out when you've been eating Brussels sprouts, so it'll definitely be hard to work out when you drink milkshakes. 

Screw you, milkshakes.

I went to the orthodontist this week and found out a whole slew of things wrong with my mouth. Did you know I have a narrow arch? I know, how embarrassing, right? My sister got the wavy hair, and I got the...narrow arch? Anyways, being an adult means deciding between if the extra money goes to new retainers, or it is goes to a trip this summer.

Sigh. If that whole paragraph isn't the perfect example of #firstworldproblems then slap my bleep and call me Sally!

Ricky worked really late one night this week, and I found myself standing in the middle of the kitchen thinking, "Wait, didn't I get married just so I never had to feed myself again? How did I get here?" So I roasted vegetables. All by myself! I'm doing work in the kitchen equivalent to what the MasterChef Junior kids do before they can talk so... 

Freddie thinks I can cook now so we need to SHUT THIS DOWN, people. Pretend you didn't even read this paragraph.

Let's be real here, you don't always want to shower. Sometimes you want to hit snooze. Sometimes you want to have an extra glass of wine at night and not have to go to bed with wet hair. Sometimes you think that baby wipes might just do the trick for the time being.

And you know what, you do you. You wipe yourself down with a baby wipe and call it a day. Because being an adult and making yourself shower might be hard some days, but on the opposite side of that it's pretty great being an adult and getting to make your own decision not to shower sometimes. 

Oh, I'm sorry. Not everyone is as gross as I am? Cool, moving on.

I have six other tabs open on my internet browser right now, and they all have to do with deep cleaning my kitchen. 

'Nuff said. 

Happy Friday!
Linking up with Karli and Amanda

baby wipes ARE just fine (*especially* when you're adulting during show week and you get home and standing in a shower just isn't going to happen) <3

Kids on master chef junior just blow my mind. How the heck did they learn that AND learn to like that kind of food!?!?1

The reason I got married was so that I didn't have to cook either! When Chris used to travel for work I had to fend for myself a lot, but now that he's home more (and working from home), he usually does most of the cooking which I love! It really does suck to have to take showers all the time! I have to admit if we don't have any huge plans, I'll see if I can go the whole weekend without washing my hair and putting on makeup. It's really awesome!

Mattie @ Northwest Native said...

Uh I got married so I wouldn't have to cook either, and I've been having to cook dinner every single week night for like five months now because Michael got on a schedule where he's not off until 7. It's horrible...and our dinners are super repetitive and boring because of it. Ha!

And I so miss being a kid and like rolling around in dirt but somehow not having to take a bath for three days. When I was little I saw 'old people' (aka adults) sweat through their shirts and I was like fascinated and really wanted to do that. And now I'm like, "Please take me back to childhood when I didn't have sweat glands."

I'm so totally guilty of skipping shower some mornings haha- I mean, who do I need to impress at work?! NO ONE!

P!nky said...

Girl, I'm so with you on the milkshakes and overthinking and the missing a shower....or two haha.

My fav alternative to a milkshake is a diet frosted lemonade from Chick-fil-a since it uses the diet lemonade instead of milk, which cuts out a bunch of calories, etc. And yes, sometimes a baby wipe does the trick.haha

BTW, I co-host a Friday linkup called High Five for Friday and I'd love it if you'd join us this Friday coming up! It goes lives at 8 am eastern time.

I totally stretch that no shower thing....tooooo far. When I'm with my family, my mom thinks she can still tell me that I have to shower. Uhm, no, mom, I'm an adult now, I don't HAVE to shower!

Also, milkshakes. I am somehwere right now where there is ice cream. I could have it. But I'll overthink it, because of what you said. Why oh why do we have to think about these things? should totally get a milkshake!

The Lady Okie said...

Milkshakes! I do totally overthink them. Darn it! I need more chocolatey goodness in my life.

The Girl who Loved to Write said...

Haha! This is so true, especially overthinking milkshakes!!

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...
