Don't Hate Me But...

I'm on a horse! Cool shades Kayne. Dumb purchase 101 called, they want their sunglasses back.

1. Don't hate me but, I hate chevron.
It just is too cutesy for my taste. I feel like I need a bow in my hair too. Did I own chevron at one point, absolutely. We all did. Chevron had its time, and I think it needs to rest in peace now.

2. Don't hate me but, I think Monograms are dumb.
I know my name. It is Sarah. Why do I need to brand my neck, my wrist, my notebooks, my polos, my backpacks, my shoes, my forehead with my monogram?

3. Don't hate me but, I wouldn't shop at JCrew.
It just seems too easy. I like a challenge. One billion items and two hours to sort through the heaping amount of clothing adorned on the racks at Forever 21 and H and M just to find the perfect blend of hippie, casual, trendy sophistication. Challenge accepted. I win at shopping.

4. Don't hate me but, I hated the show friends.
I just didn't get it. I tried to watch a few episodes but it was just blah to me. I know it was the greatest thing in this history of television and all but it wasn't (to me).

5. Don't hate me but, I hate designer grocery stores.
$12 for an organic chia seed? (p.s. I had to ask my friend Lisa to point out something she would buy at Earth Fare, Whole Foods, Fresh Market etc. what the heck is a chia seed?) I'll just take my preservatives and call it a day.

6. Don't hate me but, I hate fireball
It is good while it goes down, but holy hangover. I just can't.

7. Don't hate me but, I hate glitter
Glitter is for life, not just Christmas. Just seeing if you are actually reading

8. Don't hate me but, I don't understand babies
Never held one. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to pet it or poke at it or play fetch. What do you want me to do with that thing? They all look alike, too.

9. Don't hate me but, Coach wristlets grind my gears
I don't know why. I don't need a reason since this is my blog, right? I just can't stand them.

10. Don't hate me but, why the heck are you watching Honey Boo Boo and family?
I tried to watch 5 seconds and wanted to stab myself in the eye with a fork. Please someone, explain!

11. Don't hate be but, I've never seen the goonies
Everyone seems so personally insulted when I say this.

12. Don't hate me but, I hate reading
I never have time to just sit down and read a book. It isn't fun for me. I like blogs because my tiny little brain can only handle so much in one sitting. I couldn't even get all the way through 50 Shades of Grey. Bore Snore.


What do you hate?

  2. I am so glad I'm not the only one who hates Chevron. The stripe in everyone's home... ick.

  3. Drama filled reality shows, Real Housewives of Anything is on that list.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I've never seen Goonies, either. Hmmm. Oh, and I've never watched any Real Housewives or Honey Boo Boo.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I was ok until I got to the one about Friends but that's ok, I won't hold it against you since I don't get coach wristlets either. And I've never shopped at JCrew either.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I knew I liked you. I pretty much hate everything on your list..except Friends and reading oh and babies.

    I hate pretty much everything that defines the South. Monograms, jcrew, pastels, pearls. WOOF!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hahahah loved this!!! Except for the goonies part but I don't have much room to talk since I have never seen ET all the way through. Designer grocery stores are for the birds...I shopped at whole foods once and it cost us 98 bucks for one meal, we could have eaten out for less.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I don't hate you for these things. I do hate you for being on a beautiful horse. just kidding! :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. THANK YOU. I will never shop in JCrew. Can you get more boring???

    No offense to my lovely ladies who shop there, but I hate that store.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Holy Moly Honey Boo Boo makes me throw up a little in my mouth. That show is ridiculous. I can't even handle it. I've never seen the goonies either!

    ReplyDelete
  11. YES. My love for you just doubled. I too hate all (most?) of these things. Except reading--I just picked up Tina Fey's Bossypants and it's like a blog in book form. Seriously, you'd love it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ummm yeah about J. Crew, is that like fashion if the future where we all look alike and dress the same. I feel it's like a Stepford Wives type of thing. I don't get chevron either. It's just zig zags. Ummm??? And you almost threw me off with the glitter. But you didn't. ;) Glitter forever!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I HATE organic grocery stores, too. We have these crazy awesome discount grocers in Germany and I ridicule anyone who doesn't shop there because they're just wasting money.

    BUT Chia Seeds are awesome. Only because I'm trying not to eat carbs and they are my dessert treat every day - you soak them in milk and they turn into a pudding type thing that I mix with cinnamon and stevia.

    ReplyDelete
  14. designer grocery stores are the worst. like cool, go get the same spinach at krogs (that's kroger) for half the price. I'm with you on all of it, but we knew that already.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Honey Boo Boo makes me want to throw my tv out the window. And I don't shop J. Crew because I'm not paying $250 for a sweater... I'll take my target $19 sweater any day.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I agree with almost all of these. with the exception of Friends and reading. never saw Goonies, hate fireball, Honey Boo Boo disgusts me, I never understood chevron or monograms.. you get the point.

    ReplyDelete
  17. i agree with you on the designer grocery stores...it's why i will only buy my beauty products at whole foods because i don't need to be spending $8 for a pint of berries when the same thing costs $3 at my other regular grocery store.

  18. *sigh* Goonies. I just love that movie a lot. Everything else I can live with you blogger rebel.

    ReplyDelete
  19. HAHA, I actually did cock my head in confusion when I first read that you hate glitter. I agree with a lot of this. I'm not really the cutesy, chevron, JCrew type of girl either. I've actually never tried Fireball-- I worked in bars long enough to know that cheap liquor is never worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm a polka dot girl through and through, but I just don't get how people become obsessed with a pattern in general. It's sig-zaggy stripes, people!?

    Also- I don't even know what the goonies is/are?

    1. ERIN.

      I'm on board with patterns (look, stripes of any kind look weird on me, so just no) but, but, but... Goonies?

      *sigh*

      Delete
  21. I can get on board with almost all of these BUT #4. Really, no Friends? I can't grasp that. Can't. And you really threw me with the glitter comment. I was like WHAAAA?

    ReplyDelete
  22. lol I agree with number 4 and 11.

  23. Goonies..and fireball...oh my..I feel like I need to come find you and change all of this!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hahaha glitter made me do a total double take, I was like wait what? I'm with you on Friends. I don't think it's all that funny either. Also, Fireball. Woof.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I hate chevron too - but looking at pinterest and just about every blog ever I was starting to think I was the only one!

  26. I just wrote a post about the Goonies and how I don't get it. And J. Crew is expensive - they have the same stuff pretty much anywhere else.

    ReplyDelete
  27. You hate monograms?! We can't be friends. (I forgive you, though, because life is boring without glitter.)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Honey Boo Boo, just no. And I was never that into Friends! I've seen a ton of episodes, because other people forced me to watch them, but if I'm on my own, I will never choose to watch Friends. Sorryyyy!

    ReplyDelete
  29. The Goonies is good, watch it. I love Honey Boo Boo. I cannot help myself. I really do.

    ReplyDelete
  30. You've never seen The Goonies and you hate Friends?!? I'm pretty sure we can't be friends now.

    Kidding...you're entitled, of course :) And I agree with about 90% of that, for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hold the phone....


    Seriously...


    Never watched the Goonies?! :( Watch it. now.

    Also, you're supposed to pay fetch with babies. That's what I've heard at least.

    ReplyDelete
  32. eek I certainly could never hate you but most of this post is just wrong! except 1,2,8, and 10. I support your choices on those matters, nothing else though pal.

    ReplyDelete
  33. #8 is me all the way. While other people are cooing at babies, I'm busy running away.

  34. No Goonies? Count me among those who take it as a personal affront.

    I'm always devastated when people don't like reading too, like it's my fault or I can make it better or something.

    I've never owned chevron anything and I hate it with the fire of a thousand suns.

    I've never drank fireball and never will. The cinnamon liquor does not compute in my genetic makeup.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Don't hate me if I love Goonies and reading... and I shop at J. Crew.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ok, I love monograms, Friends, and I am a huge reader.

    I hate the Vino2Go (which you know already!), Erin Condren planners, Real Housewives of anything, and the words selfie, sunnies, champs, and presh.

    AND Instagram giveaways.

    ReplyDelete
  37. So sad you're not on the Friends bandwagon -- but I'll let it slide :)

    This is such a cute post. I'm filing it away for future reference when I'm in need of inspiration.

  38. This post definitely made me chuckle! I still like chevron, I can't help myself.. but I love ruffles more. Oh lord do I go crazy for ruffles. Ruffles and lace. Ruffles, lace, and burlap! Perfection.
    I just about had a hart attack when you sad glitter, glad you were joking!
    I also love reading ha ha :D
    I don't understand fireball, I'm not crazy about cinnamon, and I will never watch Honey Boo Boo. That show makes you lose brain cells ha ha.
    But, I do hate when people mix and match prints.. I'll never understand fashion. I also hate when the word like is used like too much, ha ha.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I hate that you hate fireball, friends, and the goonies.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I thought we were best friends. I thought I knew you. I thought I was gonna visit you once a month when my brother moves to South Lake. I am so sadded by your disdain of coach wristlets (despite my collection of large purses, all I carry is a coach wristlet for the most part). J Crew is my fave- I like it when they're easy. You threw me with the glitter one; whew! Crisis averted. I thought we needed an intervention. And all of a sudden, a few months away from 35, we have decided to try to get pregnant.

    I guess we could be growing apart, though I fully agree with you on everything else. I guess we can just reestablish our relationship with new commonalities. :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I almost got mad at the glitter. You tricked me. Glitter is for EVERY DAY LIFE! I've also never shopped at JCrew or seen the Goonies. And Honey Boo Boo is dumbbbb.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wow! We are so different! I still love Chevron, wear the Hell out of a monogram! Oh, and I shop at J Crew like there's no tomorrow. What I hate is the smell of cigarette smoke and smoking in general. Nasty!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh Man, I thought of another one...Any post that starts with, "I'm sorry I've been MIA lately, but life just got in the way." I hate when people apologize for not posting. It's a blog for goodness sake. No one cares if someone doesn't post for a few days!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm with you on all but two of these. The babies one cracked me up! I would feel the same way if anyone I knew was procreating.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Glitter for life! LOL... that was funny.

    I am not insulted that you didn't see the Goonies, just surprised you never caught it on when it plays on TV for all these years.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I have to say, I do love chevron, but I don't see the OBSESSION with it, all I own is a blanket that has it on there! I do have a few monogrammed things that I love, BUT its not on everything. Cannot stand Honey Boo Boo and her overweight family! Gahh.

    Yes, glitter for life.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Not gonna lie, I mostly thought this post was funny because I love everything on this list. Except Chevron. I don't LOVE it but it DID recently find its way into my bedroom even though I'm a few years too late.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I have never owned anything Chevron and JCrew, just NO!! What can you fit in a Coach wristlet - not your iPhone that what?! Honey Boo came on the tv at the gym and I had to move to another machine that was just too much! I knew I like you for a reason! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  49. You are FREAKING hilarious! I hate colorblocking, so thank you for letting me get that off of my chest. YOU are great and glitter is for everyday, but I prefer sparkle!

  50. LOOVEEEE this post. Also your caption underneath the horse picture - uh-mazing. LOVE it.
    Also - love your new blog design!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. yes to all of these but 3, 8, and 12 (and your sneaky glitter reference). I love me some reading and JCrew. And staring at babies (not holding because I'm afraid that I'll drop it)

    ReplyDelete
  52. BAHAHAHAHAHAHA...how do you live in Texas...went to school in TN...and can't get down with monograms. Are you sure???? I've never had fireball...and every time I read a post like this from you I can't wait to get my hiney down to Dallas to visit my cousin and arrange a blate.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Living in NC I definitely have developed my dislike for monograms. They annoy me and are everywhere! There is a whole store dedicate. But I really hate those pictures on the back that tells you how many kids and dogs you have. -_- I don't care how big your family is! lol

  56. Well I sure am glad that you don't hate me.....because basically I love everything on your list especially my monogram!!!! I have it allover my house-bedding, towels, throw pillows, jewelry....it's my jam! And we both know that JCrew is my idea of heaven!!! Just saying, somehow we are friends, despite my loving everything on your list :) xoxo

  57. i know you're lying about the whole glitter thing. and i love it too, but it is totally the herpes of the craft world.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Man...the Goonies is great. Anyways, I live in a college town, and it seems the current trend among college girls is those Nike running shorts (in hot weather) or black leggings (in cold weather) paired with faded tshirts that are 3 sizes too big. No lie...one of the kids that works for my husband said that the girls who should be wearing mediums wear 2XL in those tshirts. they.look.like.clones. & it drives me insane.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I am so over chevron as well and I am so happy I chose not to incorporate into our wedding day. But GOONIES!! GASP!! GO WATCH IT!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I hate sushi and I'm not sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  61. All of that, except 4 and 12. Also I hate the Bachelor/Bachelorette

    ReplyDelete
  62. There was a half a minute there where I kind of loved chevron, and then it was freaking everywhere and I was all, "nope, over I'm it".

    ReplyDelete
  63. you scared me for a sec with the glitter one! i think i might hate j crew too. i tried to shop there over the weekend and everything looked like poop on me. i think my biggest thing would be running. i have finally unabashedly admitted that i hate running after i tried to do it for the longest time.

  64. You are coming over, I am making you a Fireball and eggnog..and we are watching the Goonies!!! I don't Fireball straight either..but mixed with holiday eggnog?? holy holiday in your mouth!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I never watched friends so I don't even know what the fuss is about, I won't pay extra for organic food, I don't really get monograms either. I don't own anything Chevron but I kind of want to! I hate lots of things but I just can't think of anything right now!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I don't know if I can continue reading the blog of someone who doesn't love Friends...

    But, okay, fine I'll make an exception just this once.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm right there with you with everything except The Goonies.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I don't ever want to see anything about or related to honey boo boo ever again, after seeing a few minutes of it. Yuck, trash, boo is right. !!!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Here I am way down at number 72 that is one thing I hate being low on the comment list, I also hate people who smell and want to hug me.........go use deodorant you stinky person.......ok I love you but you stink..............

    I also hate people who think it is rude for me to stand what them have a big ass fight in the driveway, if you want to fight in the drive way people like me want to stand and watch you...........deal........

    ReplyDelete
  70. I've never seen The Goonies either! My boyfriend doesn't understand why. I hate that movie and I've never even seen it. Why is it such a "classic" that "everyone's seen?" I don't get it.

    ReplyDelete
  71. The glitter one was evil! I seriously grasped and said it can't be!!

    I hate bad drivers, people that don't use their blinker, and vegetarians (they make sure a huge deal about them being a vegetarian).

    ReplyDelete
  72. I'm with you on the Honey Boo Boo & Coach wristlets buuuut I totally love everything else! Especially my monograms, "designer" grocery stores, and reading. Don't worry, I still love ya!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'm with you on 2, 3, 4, and 6. And 7! Glitter for life! I know your brain isn't too small for books (and I know you're kidding, but really, you are one clever chick). Maybe you just haven't found the right kind of books that you enjoy enough to read? Or maybe you get bored cuz it can take too long? Ask a librarian for some suggestions! ;) Or ask me! lol

    ReplyDelete
  74. umm yes, glitter rocks.

    Jcrew and Friends are two of my fav things. How dare you!!!! I HATE sorting through racks and racks of clothes to find something. but i LOVE having a friend that loves to do so.

    DESIGNER GROCERY stores...YES. what the hell people. Get over yourself, ugh. I love driving up in my tahoe and parking next to the electric cars and going in without my hand knit bags while ppl hate on me for it.

    Honey Boo Boo...WHY do people encourage this. Have never seen it, refuse to participate in the madness.

    Goonies...no, never seen it.

    THANK YOU for being one to admit you don't love reading. I try. I really do. All I can make it through is teen drama (hello twilight and hunger games) and blog posts. That's my attention span

    PS LOVING your new blog design!

  75. Whats your address I'm sending you the goonies on DVD I actually have 3 copies of it on DVD and I will part with one in order for you to see it.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I loved reading this and then got sad...
    I love chevron, and i asked you to incorporate into my blog design, haha don't hate me i just want a little nothing over board with it.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I'm with you on monograms and gourmet grocery stores. But girl, you DO need to see The Goonies. It's like misfit paradise.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I've never seen the goonies either. We can form a club.

    ReplyDelete
  79. FINALLY!! SOMEONE WHO HATES FRIENDS TOO!!! I thought I was alone!

    I also have never seen Goonies. Apparently I've been robbed of a childhood.

    ReplyDelete
  80. so, i love friends and glitter and monograms... but i do hate j crew and i've never seen the goonies! and i love this post and may have to do one of my own this week.

  83. I had to copy! http://www.mymunozfamily.com/2013/08/dont-hate-me-but.html That was a fun post!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I hate you. HA! J/K doll! I love JCrew and Friends. But I have to agree with you on some of these, especially Honey BooBoo...ugh. And the smell of Fireball makes me nauseous. And you ALMOST got me on the glitter one...HA!

    I hate not buying things on sale. I hate the Goonies movie. I'm sure there is more but I can't think of them right now ;-)
