what would you do if...?

This must be the week that the universe of moral compasses is out to get me...or something. earlier, I posted about movie theater etiquette and asked for your thoughts...more on that here.

yesterday, I was taking Judy on her 4th walk of the day--yes, she's spoiled--and I watched as two boys who couldn't have been more than 12 years old open each and every mailbox on our street and rifle through the mail, occasionally switching out letters into boxes. I kept thinking to myself "what the heck is going on?!" I wasn't close enough to see their faces, so I kept my distance.

as soon as they reached mine, rifled through my bills (and presumably saw nothing worth keeping), I had had enough. cracking open mailboxes that aren't yours is a federal offense and not something to be taken lightly, I don't care who you are, so I picked up speed and tracked them down.

I stopped them right outside their home and asked them why they opened my mailbox and if they were looking for something. I knew full well they weren't looking for anything, but I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Them: BLANK STARE.

So I shrugged my shoulder and said "Well?"

And then one of the kids said: "Well nothing, sorry lady."

Sorry lady?!

Okay, so now is where I need your input. What would you have done in this situation?

By that way, have a happy weekend! I'm still seething over here. if you're going to root through my mail, at least take a bill and pay it! yeesh!

2 months down, a lifetime to go

it is just downright crazy to me that Dane and I have already been married for two months. it seems like yesterday I was walking down the aisle, all while it seems like we've been married forever. is that a thing?!


dane,
I am the luckiest girl in the world to be on this adventure of life with you. you're the craftsman to my HGTV obsession, mozzarella to my basil & balsamic and the best darn breakfast-in-bed-maker that a girl could ever want. I can't imagine doing this thing without you by my side. cheers to two months and many, many more.

ya know what is really annoying...?

today I'm linking up with Helene and Taylor for my first ever blog every day in October challenge. better late than never, right?
Helene in Between Blogtober

today's prompt for the blogtober challenge is pet peeves. ironically, I had no idea what the prompt was today, but so many things have become annoying to me recently it just kind of fits perfectly, so let's get started!

1. if I can hear you chewing, you're doing it wrong. cereal, chips, pretzels (really anything that makes a loud crunch) -- I won't even be able to sit in the same room as you. ask Dane how I really feel about this...

2. movie theater etiquette. If you missed Monday's post, check it out.

3. the lady across the street who screams into her cell phone, at her husband and kids and to anyone who will listen at all hours of the day. she's also younger than me with 5 children and asks me at least once per week if I have a husband.

4. saying you will do something and then not doing it. if you're unable, why not just say "hey, that's not going to work for me. sorry about that!" ?!?!?!

5. wind blowing my hair into fresh lipgloss. yes, it's vain, but have you seen the price of lipgloss recently?

6. people who try too hard and/or act like they're better than you... for no apparent reason.

7. going to the gym each and every day. yep, I said it. I despise getting up, moving from my comfy house and working out. I love how it makes me feel, but actually going? GTFO.

8. losing followers on social media channels--again, vain. I don't care.

and while there are plenty more, I think that should do it for today!

what are your pet peeves?
