Picky Pants

I think we all have our certain quirks. Weird things that just make us..well, us!

I happened to notice a few of them lately, and they just made me laugh. Just for your own humor, I thought I would share these quirks. Maybe you do the same things?? Or it’s quite possible that I am just a weirdo.

1. I will only buy ONE brand of hair spray. & only once TYPE of hairspray from that brand.

Tresemme Extra Firm Control. Yep, the ONLY kind I will buy. I have tried all different kinds, from the expensive stuff (around $20) to the super cheap stuff. (Like Suave) But, nope I keep coming back to this brand. I love it; it doesn’t leave my hair weighed down..and it does not make it all chunky. & the best part is it’s only $4.

2. I have an excuse for every.single.day of the week as to why I need to go to Starbucks for my coffee.
Monday: Well, I’m sure we can all figure this one out. Mondays SUCK. Plain & simple. Pretty good excuse, if I do say so myself. 😉
Tuesday: Ew. Tuesday. What a boring day. Nothing happens on a Tuesday, it’s not like a Wednesday, since Wednesday’s mean I’m half way through the week. I need something to cheer me up.
Wednesday: YAY! It’s hump day. But, oh wait…that means that I still have HALF of the week left. Yikes. Better get some caffeine to power me through this day.
Thursday: I love Thursday! Some of my favorite shows come on Thursday nights. Better get Starbucks to make sure I stay awake for those shows. (mind you I’m drinking this coffee at 8am, how in the WORLD is it going to help me at 8pm?!)
Friday: WOOOHOO! It’s Friday. I made it through the week. I deserve a treat. (treat = coffee) And don’t a MILLION people out there celebrate Friday with a Starbuck’s coffee?! I can’t be left out, I have to get mine too.
Saturday: believe it or not, Saturday is the LEAST likely day that I will get Starbucks. I am always up way before Craig, so I just typically make a cup of coffee in the Keurig (& it’s usually a Starbucks K-cup) while I wait for him to get up. BUT, if I do happen to head to Starbucks, I totally have a reason 😉  –> It’s the WEEKEND!!! That in itself is a good reason!
Sunday: Sunday is the day that I get Starbucks for Craig & I. He loves his special ‘Sunday coffee.’ I think I secretly started going to Starbucks every Sunday so that I could get coffee.

Umm, I think I have an addiction. But I can guarantee you that I have an excuse for my addiction 😉

3. I like adding the word ‘pants’ to the end of names (people, pets, whoever) & to adjectives. (hence the title of this blog) Examples include: picky pants (most used), pretty pants (& I don’t mean when I’m describing actual pants 🙂 ), Holly Pants (not referring to my own self though), and many others…but you have probably had enough of all of this pants talking.

4. I realize this is such a typical girl thing. But I love shoes. I have way too many pairs. & I can’t stop buying them. I love all of the new colors for the upcoming season. All of the cute pastels & bright colors.
Prime example:

The good thing about my shoe addiction is that most of them only cost between $15- $45. I’m not big into buying a bunch of designer shoes. (well, unless you think Jessica Simpson is designer. Her shoes are my favorite)

5. I like my water EXTRA cold. I always have to have a TON of ice in it. I feel like the colder it is, the more I drink. I’m sure it’s all mental 😉
ice-water-6 ice ice baaaaaaaby!

6. I’m a picker. I pick at everything. Scabs, pimples, nail polish, etc. Any of that. It’s kind of gross, but I can’t help it. Lucky for you, the one thing I don’t pick is my nose 😉

7. Speaking of picking…I’m OCD about cleaning my face & moisturizing. I asked ‘Santa’ (aka Craig) for a Clarisonic Mia for Christmas.

I adore this thing. I HIGHLY recommend one. I have noticed a HUGE difference in my face. Less breakouts (if any), fewer blackheads (gross!) & just overall much more soft.
Well, I use this at least twice a day..and then I moisturize at night. Wanna know what I use for moisturizer? (& I swear by it!)

Yep, good ol’ fashioned Vaseline. It’s the best! Wanna see fine lines disappear?? Try this!!!! (& it’s SUPER cheap. Way better than paying like $70 for some name brand stuff!)

8. I get really annoyed when people don’t replace the last roll of toilet paper or paper towels. Drives me nuts! (& it happens all of the time at work. Grr!)

9. I’m not a big flower person, but I LOVE sunflowers. Like really love. So I guess that kind of makes me a flower person..?

Heard enough of my strange ways?! 😉
Please tell me you can relate to at least one of them.

  1. I love your Starbucks “excuses” – they all sound perfectly reasonable to me ; ) My current “excuses” to go to Starbucks – I have a gift card and I’m only a few stars away from earning my Gold card!

  2. I most definitely justify Starbucks, too! For example, I was early before work yesterday in the city so I obviously had to get a coffee before heading to the office! 🙂

  3. FUN! I like this post!!

  4. I love your justifications for Starbucks. I do the same type of thing! I used to get Starbucks a lot more a couple of years ago than I do now. My work provides us with free coffee/tea so I usually stick with that. 🙂 I love that picture from your wedding! It’s beautiful!

  5. I love your justification with coffee because I am the same way with my gas station coffee (minus I gave it up for lent!). Anyways-I am with you on hair products as well. There are only certain types I’ll use ever…

  6. I love all of your Starbucks excuses :). Perhaps I will have to use one today haha. I never thought of using vaseline on my face! Do you use it at night? And it doesn’t make you break out??

  7. I like that brand of hair spray, too! But I don’t like my water super cold … unless it’s super hot out!

  8. I love Jessica Simpson shoes too!!!! 🙂

  9. Hahaha I love these. I pick at everything too! I can’t help it!

  10. You are too funny! We all have our quirks I totally agree. I might have to try that hair stray since I have such fine hair!

  11. where are the hot pink patent leather pumps from?!?!

  12. Vaseline on your face! OMG. I have this image that it’s probably really greasy but I bet it makes your skin feel amazing! I use this old fashioned British cream called Astral. It’s super cheap and really greasy so it’s only for night time use but amke my skin feel lovely. It’s one of those products, like Vaseline, that you hear a lot of older ladies with amazing skin say they’ve used all their lives. Love the shoes BTW 🙂

  13. I wish I had a Starbucks more conveniently located to me! I’d probably go every day too. ‘Til then I just go every now and then when I’m at work, when there’s one in walking distance (iced coffee & petite vanilla bean scones make the perfect Friday snack).

    I dream of the day I quit running so my feet can handle wear pretty shoes. I can’t wear heels ever since I started doing marathons!
