Internet Pet Peeves

Ahh the internet. One of the greatest inventions out there. Sadly, not all people who use the internet are the brightest crayons in the box. The things said, done, and the ever-growing list of misspelled words on the internet truly make me cringe. 

For your enjoyment, a few of my biggest internet pet peeves…

1. “Follow for follow”
I absolutely LOATHE when someone gets on an instagram picture of mine and proceeds to comment “follow for follow?” GO. AWAY! You people are SO annoying. I don’t follow people on ANY social media to get “follows back”. I follow people because I genuinely like what they post, in this case, pictures. So NO, I will not “follow for follow”, get a life. 

2. Grown adults who don’t know how to spell
This goes without saying. I truly believe this annoys everyone out there (besides the people who are the culprits) I can understand an error here or there, or when big words might be hard, but there are simple words that should NOT be written the wrong way. You as an adult should KNOW the different between KNOW and NO. That’s all there is to it. 

3. The irrelevant hashtagger 
Over-hashtagging (is that a word?) and irrelevant hashtagging are two separate things. I hashtag a lot. Like a lot a lot. BUT! The types of people who hashtag the most irrelevant things on their pictures REALLY irk me. For instance, a picture of a sunset…. #america #china #shopping #makeup #arizona #twitter #cheeseburger #blanket #california #newyork #bestdayever #coffee #couple #ilovefall 

4. The unfollower/refollower 
Have you ever had someone follow you? Then unfollow you? Then follow you again? About 10 times? 
In the matter of 3 days? 

5. People who alert you that they are unfollowing you 
“Ugh, you are so annoying, i’m unfollowing you”
………………do you want an award? A cookie perhaps? Why is it necessary to TELL someone who are unfollowing them?! So irrelevant. So so so so so irrelevant. 

6. Play by plays of your ENITRE day
I get it, you want to keep up to date with your family on Facebook. But if you have a novel for a status and it includes EVERY SINGLE THING you did today, just stop. Pick up a phone, give whoever cares to hear that much a call, and tell them. Because trust me, your 500+ Facebook friends MOST LIKELY don’t care too much about what you had for breakfast, and lunch, and dinner, and snack, and what you did on your break at work, and the drink of water you just had, and the pee you took an hour ago. 

7. “So and so has sent you a request to play Candy Crush Saga”
This one needs no explaining.

Ginny Bakes: Review

{I was sent this product for review however all opinions are my own. Thank you Moms Meet and ginnybakes for this opportunity!}

I am by no means gluten-free, but I am wanting to attempt a 30 day “wheat free” diet. We’ll see how that goes. Nonetheless, my thoughts on gluten free food has always been the same. Boring, tasteless, weird textured foods. But alas, I have found something delicious!

I was sent this amazing box of treats. Yes, ALL of this. Four for you, ginnybakes. (And four for YOU if you get that reference)

Honestly, I wasn’t expecting things to taste that great. Haha. I know, I know, I’m a terrible human being. BUT I’m a sweets lover. I have high expectations. DON’T JUDGE ME.
My favorite thing so far as been the Coconut Oatmeal Cookies. And don’t tell anyone, but I think my husband even likes them too! 

I also made up a batch of the brownies. MMMM! MMM! So delicious. 

I was shocked at how much FLAVOR was in these bad boys! 

If you’re in the market for gluten free options, I would check out this company. 
Are any of you gluten free? How long have you been eating gluten free? What changes in your body have you seen?! 20 Q’s for my readers. My apologies. 😉 

Let me know if you’ve ever tried a ginnybakes treat before or if you try it out! 
I hope each one of you are doing well!

Reception – A Bombshell Wedding

Okay, I know it’s been over 6 months since we got married, but I still want to blog about a few other things from the wedding. If not for your entertainment, at least for mine. 

The reception was everything I could have hoped for and more. The venue was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the party was more than I could have hoped for. 

We had our reception at the same place as our ceremony, Trilogy Golf Club at Power Ranch. I thought the place was beautiful and I loved that there was a bar inside the venue space. 

We had our cake done by a friend of mine, Whitney, and we were SO in love with it. It wasn’t your “traditional wedding cake” but I just loved the way it looked with all the other decorations! Our music was done by M’s awesome cousin Mitchell, and our pictures done by the AMAZING Holly! Thank you ALL so much for all the effort you put into our special day. It truly meant the world to us. 

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the reception. Thank you to EVERYONE who came and celebrated with us. It meant so so much to us!
