all about alliteration

I always feel like I have to write a post about fun things, favorite things, or five things on Fridays. 

Or fried things. Or funny things (well, I mean, that's all my posts. Insert smirk 'moji). Or finicky things. Or financial things. Or filibuster things. Or...you get the idea. 

Basically I feel like I'm not real blogger status until all my weekly posts contain some kind of alliteration. On that note...

Five Favorite, Funny, fThoughts fI've fBeen fThinking fLately fBecause fIt's Friday

1) Who else has the iPhone update? Who else has spent countless hours sending messages in invisible ink or with confetti bursting on the screen? But most important question of all, who else still swipes to unlock the home screen? Let's say since I updated the phone two weeks ago I've unlocked my phone 173 times. Let's also say that that means there have been 173 times during which I swiped my phone, it didn't unlock, it took me to the news, I started pressing buttons, I made it a mess, I didn't unlock my phone, and I swore I'd remember to double press the button the next time. Update: I wrote this post last night, and in these past 12 hours I have yet to successfully remember to double tap the button to unlock my phone. Once a failure, always a failure. 

2) I rearranged and cleaned our storage room guest bedroom yesterday, and I literally feel like I cleansed my soul. <<not really sure what that even feels like, but it sounds properly dramatic for how I feel/felt after rearranging. I told this to Ricky when he got home so he excitedly went to look in the guest bedroom. Aaaaaand then asked what was different. My soul, Ricky, my soul is different!

3) Thank the Netflix gods that season 6 of The Walking Dead was put on because now Freddie and I can continue our healthy marriage routine of binge watching shows every night instead of talking to each other. I use the term "watching" very loosely because the end of season 6 TWD is terrifying, and I find I have to stare at my phone, my nails, the dog, the blanket, the spec of dust under the shelves, and/or the print across the room and then act surprised that my eyesight is so horrible that I can't read it all before I can actually just watch the TV screen. 

4) Whenever people say they love Halloween I always think they are dramatically pausing before finishing that sentence with the word candy. It bewilders me when people say, "I love Halloween." instead of, "I love Halloween candy." 

^^This sentence is brought to you by my sticky-eating-ghost-gummies-fingers. 

5) Ricky and I did this thing this month where we tracked our spending by listing every single item we purchased. According to Rick we spent an ungodly amount on wine. Apparently our apartment complex has a wine robber because what else is the explanation to where all this wine is going? On a similar note, he did suggest we celebrate our figuring out how much money we spent on wine by going to Trader Joe's and buying some more wine so... is admission the first step of acceptance? Admission is the first step, and celebration is the second. 

fHappy Fabulous Friday!
May your day be filled with all things alliteration.

Lol! Halloween candy. I totally agree. Halloween is fine, but it's not my favorite. But Halloween candy I am totally on board with! :)

My favorite about the iPhone update is that it predicts emojis to use instead of words when you're texting, and the gif keyboard when you're texting! Hahaha. The unlocking part is tough, but even worse is that the alarm is the same way! Every morning I swipe to turn it off and...that doesn't work. So I'm all stressing out because I can't get it to turn off and I get up 45 minutes before Michael so I'm just wanting to turn it off so I don't ruin his sleep... SO STRESSFUL.

Love that photo of Galveston! The story about the wine cracks me up. Well if it keeps going missing, just means you need more. ;)

It was the "household supplies" like toilet paper/paper toweling/cleaning supplies that surprised Ross and I when we first started budgeting, didn't feel like it would add up to as much as it did! Wine sounds way more fun though...

I laughed so hard reading all of this. Tell him buying wine is WAY cheaper than drinking wine at a restaurant, so really, you're SAVING money...LOGIC.

This is awesome! I enjoy Halloween and dressing up but seriously- the MAIN reason to LOVE it is the candy. I love me some candy and any holiday that helps me indulge in it even more (looking at you, Easter!) I'm on board with. Jared and I looked at how much we spent on fast food the 2 months after Tyler was born..... and I wanted to die. Eye opening fo' sho!

I always love a good alliteration post too! I think that we must have a wine robber near us too because I know that we buy all the wine but I have no idea where it goes! And hooray for the next season of TWD being on Netflix! I swear this show just gets better and better, especially after the season on the farm, and I can't wait for October to get here so I can watch the new season.. and thank goodness it is here!
