This weekend should be interesting. On Saturday it’s Ashley’s (my best friend) daughter’s birthday and on Sunday it’s my sister-in-law’s baby shower. I want to look good for both events. Perhaps a new outfit or two?

I like spending time with Ashley. She’s one of the few people who had a kid young and didn’t let her body or her life end up in ruins. (She had a pretty wild ride, but that’s another entry.) She looks fantastic and she’s always so well dressed. I’m not competing with her or anything, but I like being around people who like to look good. It just brings out the best in me. I’m so fugly at work that I look for any opportunity to put on make-up.

When I spend time with Jen, however, I don’t care enough to even shower. It’s weird how my environment can affect me like that, but it does. Unlike Ashley, my sister-in-law is lazy as fuck. The main reason I never look remotely decent at her place is because it’s filthy and smells like smoke. My hair needs to be washed as soon as I leave. This group, however, I want to compete with. I have issues with my husband’s family… This whole baby shower is also a fucking joke. It’s her second child from another man. The baby daddy already has 2 kids and I’m sorry, but I don’t think people should get showers for getting knocked up. Did you know it’s considered bad etiquette for a married couple to have a baby shower for each child, but if it’s a different daddy or mommy it’s not? Huh?

  1. Yeah, I usually give a haaaaaarrrd, side eye to people having a baby shower for each child lol. Also, I dislike couples who have a registry for their wedding after living together, in a home, for 8+ years. Knocks my socks all.the.way.off!

    I compleeeeetely agree. We’ve only been living together for 18 months, but still. 18 months is more than enough time to get the basics so 99% of what I registered for was under $25. My biggest request was a fancy decanter, lol.

  3. I have been reading your entries and love them…This one had me laughing because I couldn’t agree with you more
