do the creep

Hello Everyone,

Bear with me as I try and make it through this Wednesday, that feels like a Thursday. Man that is really the worst feeling, isn't it? I just feel like an extra day got tacked on and it is killing me. (Also going to start these confessions right off the bat, and confess that I just had to google whether or not you use the word bear or bare when you use the term bear with me. Turns out I was correct with the bear ....unless that is you want people to undress with you, then it would be bare. Heyyyyyo)... Ok, I am getting off topic. Reel it in, Brooke.

But no really, let's link up with Kathy today and share some Humpday Confessions, shall we?

::I confess I felt really awkward taking photos at the farmers market the other day for yesterday's blog post. I still don't know how fashion bloggers do it on the regular. Especially those in busy places like the streets of NYC and what not. People kept walking by and I would stop posing and get really weird and Brad would laugh at me and it was a struggle. Not that you should be surprised that I was a struggle. Don't ever be surprised by that. 

::This is more my kind of outfit post. Showing off my wrinkled clothes (because I don't believe in ironing) and my poor attempt at a french braid on my dirty hair. #ratchet 


::I confess I have been craving dumplings. All of the dumplings. Comfort chicken and dumplings. Asian dumplings. Pot stickers. You name it., I want it. Want. Want. Want.

::I confess ever since Instagram changed up their popular page to feature more pictures based on things I have liked and whatnot there have been less random high school cheerleaders with millions of followers on my feed for me to stalk and it secretly makes me sad. That also makes me a creep. Eew.



::I confess I was mad at Brad for sending me the link to the Kate Spade 75% off sale yesterday, because I am a broke joke....Then I got to thinking how did Bradley even know about this sale before me? Either way I ended up at the site playing pretend. You're welcome for sharing it. It's the last day. 

::I confess I laughed out loud when I heard on the radio this morning that there is a Black Bear in NE Portland and people are losing their minds over it. The streets are closed down and they are telling people to stay in their homes as they try and wrangle it up. Don't worry you can now follow the bear on twitter. I wonder if it has a name? 


That is all I have for today's confessions. I know you are sad because you love all my confessions...But let's be honest, I should probably stop while I am ahead behind, since I already confessed to you that I stalk tween girls on instagram. 

Vodka and Soda
Cheers!

Id freak about a bear too, but I live in Texas and well bears live in zoos, now coyotes, snakes, mountain lions, all native and roam out streets. get a dumpling.

Melissa Suggitt said...

uhm... are bears like not a thing in portland? theres bears everywhere here. i mean not IN the city. but right outside it. I've seen lots of bears.

also i played pretend with the kate spade sale too. i wish it wasn't pretend...

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

I had to immediately delete the Kate Spade E-mails to resist buying anything. Sooo tempting though!

JumpingJE said...

LOL You got BEAR with me right, but REAL me in is incorrect. It's Reel, like when fishing. Comment #1

JumpingJE said...

Do you think that the black bear got more media coverage or the school shooting :( comment #2

P!nky said...

Awwwwwwww, I like your french braid it looks cute!

Go get a dumpling girlfriend!

I totally bought stuff at KS! I think it's awesome your bf sent you the link. Next time it should be, I BOUGHT YOU THIS! xoxo

Helene in Between said...

YES! I am secretly (and now not so secretly) sad that I see no cheerleaders or such. what the heck? also ironing, hell no.

Tami said...

The Jim Halpert gif makes my life. Heading to Kate Spade now byeeeee

MakeMeUpMia said...

Haha wrinkles are a staple on my clothes, I refuse to iron. I haven't in YEARS, it kills my mom. I'm bummed about the Kate Spade sale too, I'm on a no buy this month!

Kasey Lynne said...

That's probably one of my favorite lines ever from The Office. I love Jim so much. I need to go out with a bang and play pranks on my coworkers.

How in the HECK did Brad know about the KS sale?? I'm a little worried for your relationship.

Meg Henning said...

i think i don't do outfit posts because it is too awkward to see me twirling around, posing and if anyone looks at me while i'm getting my photo taken then i loose my mojo

Laura {happily ever} Parker said...

Totally not an outfit post blogger or an iron lover. In fact I hate the iron, David says I pretend to suck at it so I don't have to do it! I have to laugh at your google to use bear or bare. Don't think I am a dick but when you said real it in - it should be reel it in. Like a fishing pole. Now I am a Heather Dubrow asshole. But since you cared about bear/bare I thought you would wanna know! xoxo

Lauren said...

I appreciate you googling for the right bear/bare so I think you might appreciate me for correcting your real it in to reel it in. Grammar nerd for life.

Seriously, how do high schoolers have so many followers? Do their mothers know about this? And that gif is the best. I miss Jim pranks.

Fairy Princess Jord said...

Okay but you could actually be a fashion blogger because your pictures looked so natural and gorgeous! But I agree I always feel so ridiculous when trying to pose in outfits on the street...

Jess said...

A bear in Portland, never! Why would someone give it a twitter? geeze.

Allison @ Texas Mrs. said...

Sometimes it's a little odd of myself, but I will pretend shop online A LOT. I add things to my cart as if I'm rich, and it temporarily makes me feel fancy =) I may do that with Kate Spade's site!

Lisa said...

Hahaha my kind of outfit post lol!! Love the wrinkles lol!! And I am always so pleasantly surprised when my bf frwd's me some sale! I'm like oOoOOoo hahah!!! And I always find it funny when these random animals get twitter accounts like that snake some years back haha!!
(Love that creep song)

Lisa,xo

Dumplings?!?! Why did you have to say dumplings? That sounds freaking amazing right now. Oh comfort food, I need you!

Also, how do I NEVER know there is a Kate Spade sale going on?? I always ALWAYS miss it :( Get your shit together Nadine!

Meagan said...

Loved both your versions of fashion blogging! :) I'd feel the exact same way though if I were to ever try posing outside around busy (or non-busy) areas.. You nailed it though!

Brittney, Breaking Free said...

I would feel awkward taking photos in public for my blog too..and Im totally rocking wrinkled pants today.

Chasing Elephants said...

You had me at pot stickers. You know who as the best ones? Cheesecake Factory. They will blow your mind away.

alyssa said...

Wrinkled or not, that skirt is to die for. If I ever manage an outfit post it's usually a grainy iPhone shot that's been run through 100 filters and adjustments before it makes it to instagram #ootd. I should just probably not pollute the internet with those shots anyway, to be honest.

Kenzie Smith said...

I can't do a side braid to save my life. Ugh.
Aren't there quite a few bears down that way? I know we have a lot up here.. but we've never had to deal with them coming into town. So that's nice.

Kathy @ Vodka and Soda said...

i have never ironed anything of mine ever. so i wear wrinkled shirts and pants all the time. they're going to get wrinkled anyway, so the initial ironing is a waste of time.

thanks for linking up!

Taking pictures in public for outfit posts is so awkward, I agree! You looked great in the pictures though. I think you should do more outfit posts!

Someone sent me a link to the Kate Spade sale yesterday, too! I cannot even begin to tell you how tempted I was to get myself a purse.

Kalyn V said...

Here's a confession: I've never purchased anything Kate Spade. Please don't take my girl card.

MacKensie said...

I don't believe in ironing either--that's what Downey Wrinkle Release spray is for. I love that you confessed to stalking tween girls. You are my favorite.

Chelsea @ Delipsch said...

This post is great in so many ways, thanks for a good laugh and making me hungry for dumplings at 6AM Cheers!

Tori G said...

oh man I just went to the site and purchased way more than i should have....thanks!! lol

Em said...

GRRR that Kate Spade sale!!!! Eff my broke effing life. And Josh would never ever send me a link to that in fear that I would actually buy all the things hahaha. The struggle...oh the struggle...

Kelli @She Crab Soup said...

I never understand why people make Twitter accounts for things like bears or Pharrell;s hat.

Sarah said...

Yes to the million follower cheerleader! I was always so baffled by that. I think the new popular page is downright creepy.
