Every month, I see other bloggers posting about their “Favorite Things”, “Favourite Things” (from my UK gals) or “Currently Crushing On…” and I’m just like…. “Bitch, don’t you just loathe SOMETHING? ANYTHING?”
I see, taste, and do things on the reg that absolutely have me saying “OMG, that is awesome!” But, I am not gonna lie. I also experience some things that just down right make me wanna hurl or roll my eyes. Let’s be honest. Not everything is amazzzzzziiiiinnnnnnngah. So here it goes…
Although it is humid AF right now in Georgia, I LOVE being surrounded by beautiful shades of green and quenched wild mushrooms growing around mi casa. With such gorgeous surroundings, there is a bit of uncomfortable sweating that happens. I’m not talking about a light perspiration (as most women should experience), I’m talking about full-on sweat!
I LOATHE boob sweat. And stay calm, these are not my boobs. You would know they were mine if they resembled two 18th Century leather gunpowder sacks hanging from an old nail in your great great great grandpa’s shed. As fabulous as this looks, it is not my favorite thing to deal with. I avoid it at all costs. I don’t exercise. I don’t go to the lake with friends. I don’t even like walking into Walmart on a Sunday because of that “swamp cooler/lake sweat” odor billowing off of everyone around me. Yes, I LOATHE summer. So, dear Autumn, please get here quickly?! Thanks.
Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia Non-Dairy Ice Cream…can I just take a moment to express my love for it? I LOVE it so much that I bend my spoon every time I go into it way too hard. It is the closest thing to real ice cream, in my opinion. Who doesn’t love cherries and chunks of dark chocolate mixed in with frozen almond milk? I am addicted, ya’ll. With the amount of money I have spent on pint after pint after pint of this delicious sorcery, I could have bought myself a more sturdy set of silverware. I LOATHE my cheap ass silverware…but, you know, I gotta pick my battles. And, ice cream wins every time.
I LOVE this installation by artist Lucy Sparrow! An entire convenient store full of your favorite treats and snacks are all handmade felt products. I have got to get a can of Spam! You can find her Sew Your Soul shop here.
I LOATHE removing wallpaper. I have only had to do it twice in my life and that is fucking enough! Having endured this hideous Ivy print on my kitchen walls for over five years, I have always thought it ranked right up there with country blue hearts and roosters. It finally had to go but, I am pretty sure my damn patience left as well. Your battles, Ruthie…your battles….
So, until I figure out how to get paid to LOVE products and blog about them, I might as well share everything I genuinely LOVE and LOATHE. I am all about YIN and YANG, Ebb and Flow, errrrrr whatever….
