I'll Put Your Face on That Book

Outfit: Skirt: Handmade, Belt: Thrifted, Blazer: Yesstyle, Blouse: TJ Maxx, Shoes: Thrifted (Naughty Monkey)

Can you guys believe these shoes? Aren't they just the coolest things you've ever seen. I saw them and they were shouting, "Sarah pick us up, take us home, match us with all things teal and mustard." and once again I personify inanimate objects, that's how cool these shoes are.

Can I just go on a quick list making rant for a second. Don't get me wrong, there are some awesome things about facebook....but lets just talk for a sec about all the things that drive me absolutely nuts.

1. Farmville Requests: What the heck is Farmville and why is someone asking me to give them digital corn. I just don't understand.
2. Tagging Photos: Why must I always be tagged in the absolute worst looking photos of myself.
 3. Ads: For the last time, I do not want to buy that shirt that says "I used to be schizophrenic but we're okay now."
 4. Poking: This was fun for negative five seconds. Why the heck do you keep poking me.
 5. Birthday Presents: Thank you for the digital balloon....will it float into cyberspace if I let it go?
 6. Notes: Guess what, I didn't want to know about your campaign to save the Lobsters by dressing in red for the month of May and I also don't want to be notified every time someone agrees with you. Please stop this insanity.
7. Dramatic status: I really really don't want to see another status that says, "If only he knew how much I cared." or "Why can't I just learn from my mistake". We all know that you're trying to draw people in with this open ended craziness.
8. Relationship Drama: OMG OMG she just changed from in a relationship to its complicated. Let's all put a million sad faces on her page.
9. Messages that are intended to leave people in the dark: "I cannot believe that that happened, do you really think he meant it." For goodness sake write a private message if you're trying to keep us from figuring out what heck your talking about. Better yet call each other so we don't have to read any more statuses from you.
 10. Overusing your status: Please please stop, I do not want to know what your doing every minute of every day. Whether you decided to drop a class, get your tires rotated or just got your nails done...just stop the madness.
11. Pop culture status: If I see another status about, "I have a feeling that tonights gonna be a good night" or asking "Do you believe that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars" I might die. I get it, we all listen to music and know lyrics.

Alright alright whewwwww..... that felt good. I'm better now, and I'd love to hear your frustrations with Facebook. Spill it people. I promise you'll feel much better.


  1. I love those shoes!

    Can't believe you thrifted them!

  2. Oh, facebook.....

    That's a love/hate for me! I have to seriously limit my minutes on there, unlike blogging :))

    Great shoes!

  3. I think everything in your post would end almost all communications on facebook. Except for the birthday/holiday wishes. I like those though. I think updating once a day is more than acceptable. I probably update my status once every week. I'm pretty comfortable with it.

  4. I heart those shoes. So very awesome.
    Yes, I hate drama filled updates and the nine-million event requests I get to attend things in towns nowhere near me.

  5. love the shoes, and you did a splendid job at pairing them with your outfit! amazing!

  6. Ha, this made me smile. I also don't want to know about everyone I knew in school's babies bodily functions. Thank you for the free birth control guys. The shoes are dreamy! (:

  7. GREAT shoes! And your skirt is amazing.
    Can I add one to your facebook list? How about the Way-TMI-Post, as in "I'm six centimeters dilated and 50% effaced." "Now I'm seven centimeters." "Now I'm ten centimeters and getting ready to push. Here we go!"
    Ew. Just ew. I don't want to know. I am really excited you're having a baby and all, but I don't need the play-by-play.

  8. You are a funny lady... I was already smiling when I read your profile description and then I went through this list of things you hate about facebook. I'm not having a particuarly stellar morning but your sense of humour really brightened it :) Not to mention that this look is fabulous, especially those shoes and the fact that you manage to make green, yellow, brown, black and white look so... obvious! I just have to follow you, you're fabulous :)

  9. love the shoes, and i adore the colors of this outfit! so bright!

  10. I also hate it when people use song lyrics as their status, ESPECIALLY when they don't use "quotes". like hello! you didn't come up with those lyrics so stop stealing them! Grrr.

  11. Your facebook comments made me laught, mostly because I feel the exact same way!

    Those shoes are awesome! I am glad to know I am not the only one that can hear the shoes talking...

  12. I'm not really a fan of facebook anymore-I feel like it's definitely added a lot of needless stuff and I recently deleted a ton of my "friends" because I couldn't stand their status updates! I completely understand where you're coming from.

    Um.....I want those shoes. Please. Haha.

  13. Love the shoes and the outfit!
    The top 3 things I hate about facebook....
    1) status arguments....call each other an fuss on the phone instead
    2) Random friend request... we share one mutual friend and I don't know you.
    3) Being tagged to a note, random picture or a video about nothing!

    Now I feel better...Lol

  14. love the outfit, mustard and teal = awesome! couldn't agree with you more on the facebook stuff...mostly i end up 'hiding' those type of status updaters:)

  15. Re: Facebook, AMEN. Re: Those Shoes, why don't they have a sister-pair in MY closet? SO. CUTE.

  16. People and their love dovey sickness. With statuses like: I love him so much, he's my everything. Your the best babe.... blah blah blah. I swear they probably don't even do it for their spouse they just do it to show off. AHHH I HATE IT SO MUCH!!!

  17. Oh yes, thrift store shoes. I want them! Hehe, I'm loving your blog! :]

  18. LOVED this rant & rave about facebook. status updates are my biggest pet peeve. never i my life have i updated my status.

  19. Okay seriously, I can think of several people that do all of those things you mention.

    And um...I might have done one or two. Maybe. Maybe not.

    Those shoes are AWESOME!!! I love them. So much.
