Things I Don't Get

Things I don't get:

-People who dress their kids predominantly in monogrammed and personalized clothing. Every now and then and for special occasions sure but some people seem to only dress their kids in items that are personalized. My question, what do you do with it once they outgrow it? You can't sell, giveaway or even use them for future kids. Seems wasteful.

-Decorating for "Fall". Fall is not a holiday. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas I can understand. But decorating for "Fall"? And how come people don't decorate for Winter? Winter is like the unwanted step-child of the four seasons.

-Posting political rants on Facebook or Twitter in the hopes of changing someones opinion. Hint- you will NOT change anyones already set political opinion.

-Why traffic is always, inevitably worse when I either a- really need to be somewhere or b- really need to pee.

-Why anyone would spend $145 on a baby cashmere sweater that they will either puke on immediately or outgrow in 2.5 seconds. Seems like you could put your abundance of money to better use.

-Certain outfits that various "fashion bloggers" wear. Look, I know I'm not the most trendy, fashionable person but seriously, some of the outfits I see on these people I'm just like "dude that's hideous" and not only that but they then get 100 comments saying how cute the outfit is. WTF? Am I missing something here?

-Why the Kardashians are rich and famous. Not sure how I would feel about myself as a human being if I was rich and famous because my sibling made a sextape that went viral.

What are some things that you don't get?
*If you do one of the things listed above, or if you are a Kardashian, please don't take offense. I'm feeling a bit snarky today.*

Nothing wrong with a little snark every now and then ;) But I feel that way only because I agree with every statement you just said LOL

I don't get the monogram thing either. I think it is weird. I mean, when the kid is a toddler everyone will know their name. And how easy would it be for a stranger to say "Hey so-and-so" and the kids like, "He knows my name I'll go with him". It freaks me out.

You already know my feelings on over personalizing from last weeks confessions. No thanks!

I am guilty for decorating for fall though. I have a few things that stay up through both october and november that aren't really halloween or thanksgiving. Just fall.

I don't understand the monogrammed outfits either.

And ditto on the political rants. Nobody ever said "thanks for your political postings on Facebook, you switched my vote!"

I loved this. The monogrammed and "smocking" items kills me. Maybe it's because I am from CA and I just never heard/saw any of it before Twitter and Blogs. But it seems so weird, old fashion, and as you said - pointless.

We go all out for Halloween decor. But not in the fancy and artsy way people on IG and Twitter seem to. Think zombies and scaring neighbors, that's our house. We decorate for holidays, not seasons.

And politics, don't get me started:-)

I don't understand a lot of the 'fashion' outfits either. Maybe I'm just too basic to think outside of the box, but so many of them are just not nice.
$145 on a sweater is crazy. I'll barely spend $10 on one for Chloe.

haha I love the snarkiness!! ;)

Some people dress their kids in Monogramed / personalized clothing all the time?!? That would definitely get pricy! And that much money for a baby sweater?? Crazy!!

I can't handle reading the fashion blogs. I would feel like an absolute fool if I tried to wear any of those mis-matched, frumpy outfits.

PS- did you know you're a no-reply commenter? Just wanted to be sure you knew.

I'm on the monogrammed, name thing for special occasions only. Not every day.

And Fall decorating...I don't get that either. Halloween in my house!
