Let's get real.

On this lovely Monday morning (said no one ever), I've decided that I feel like stealing a blog post idea from one of my favorite blogs, Oddly Lovely. I'm all about being honest - with my friends, my boyfriend, my family, myself. And now, I get to be honest with my [few] readers. Except I'll be renaming it Let's Get Real, because let's get real, how many times have you seen me use that phrase in a post?

Let's get real - I love looking at engagement rings. Mostly via Pinterest. I have a whole board, right here. Ryan and I aren't planning on getting engaged any time soon, so I really don't know why I'm all about them as of late. I don't like that I'm that type of girl that lusts over a diamond because again, "let's get real," that money going to a diamond could also go to a down payment on a house or it could take us on a trip to Europe. I've also been raised to think that way. At the end of the day, I know the significance of an engagement ring matters much more than the aesthetics. Having said that, I like to look at sparkly things, thus I will continue to pin sparkly things.

Let's get real - I have zero desire to read the 50 Shades of Grey books. I tried once. I really tried. I even tried to skip to the "good parts" to see what all the fuss was about. I just couldn't get past the atrocious writing style. I get why people read them, it just isn't for me. I just desperately hope no one who has read those books has ever referred to them as "good," as in good writing. You can say they're entertaining, but for the love of god, please do not say they're well written.

Let's get real - I am absolutely awful about setting budgets for myself. I'm great at putting away money. I make a point to do it every month. But setting a limit on how much to spend on clothes/going out to eat/makeup per month? Errrmmm, nerp. If I wants it, I'll haz it. I'm also trying to get better at figuring out whether something is an impulse buy. For example, there's a $13 necklace at Target that I almost bought one day. And then I told myself if I'm still thinking about it in three days, I'll go back and buy it. It's been three months; I still think about it, and I still haven't gotten it. And then yesterday I impulsively bought a $30 dress at Target, so it's clearly a work in progress.

Let's get real - I Instagram way too hard. I stalk everyone, and I do it often. I stalk my friends, I stalk friends of friends. I can't stand going more than a few hours without seeing what the world is doing without me in that little square box. I am also OCD about making sure my pictures are straight. The alignment tool has been my best friend for the last few months, and there's no turning back now. It's embarrassing. Much like my Target buys, it's a work in progress.

Side note...let's get real, Florida really has the best beaches. This was my view yesterday afternoon. No complaints here, friends.

Any confessions to start off your Monday morning?
