5 Things I'm Horrible At

I love borrowing things. Just ask my sister--I think I still have some clothes in my closet that originally belonged to her way back in the day (sorry Ash). In my book, borrowing clothes is pretty much the best form of flattery.....like 'heeeyyy I love that {insert appropriate clothing item here} so much I'd love to wear it for {insert appropriate event here}'. 

And the equivalent of borrowing clothes in the blogging world is borrowing posts. Insert today's post. It is brought to you by the genius minds that are Amanda and Chelsea and I've totally been meaning to suggest that it should be a linkup. But since I'm like month late from when they posted theirs, I guess I'll just have to go with borrowing and giving credit where credit is due. Soooo let us begin, shall we?


1. Posing for Pictures. 

There I am sitting all pretty--mentally checking off my how-to-be-photogenic checklist. Chin forward and down. Take a breath and suck that tummy pooch in. Will my arm look huge in the picture like this? (it does) Ok, half smile . Don't make me laugh or this whole half-smolder/grimace thing I got going on here will vanish. Aw geez I feel like a ninny. When all else fails go for the wide cheezy grin!!! 


What can I say? Some people have it.....and some people look like Chandler Bing when he's getting pictures taken. 

2. Sauces

I've told you guys this already but I pretty much suck at making sauces. Which is super sad because I love my sauces--a meal is kind of incomplete without them. I think I'm ever so slowly getting better......thank you Signorino Alfredo and Monsieur Lemon-Butter Sauce for finally cooperating with me and being edible......but the resident saucier I am not. 

3. Keeping the house clean.

This was actually one of Chelsea's and I was soooo incredibly happy when I saw it because seriously I'm the worst at this. No, really--when I asked the hubs for ideas for this post--this was pretty much the first thing out of his mouth. Truth be told, I'm pretty darn messy and so is Zach so things just tend to roam from one room in the house to the other.  It's sad really because I love the smell of a spotlessly clean home but I'm not one of those people who can keep the spotless going for more than like a day before everything gets messy again. So it turns out that all those years of practicing the Samantha nose twitch were indeed apparently for nothing. Sadness.


4. Hair/Makeup

My mom was a cosmetologist...as a kid anything I wanted done to my hair in the way of styling or curls or updos, she could do. Me? I can barely manage throwing my hair in a messy bun and slapping some foundation + eyeliner on. And that wonderful amazing took-me-four-hours-to-do look for the ball the other week? Yeeeaaahh I'm never going to be able to recreate that again...like ever. I might be a 'girly-girl' in a lot of things but hair and makeup are just NOT my thing. 

5. Talking on the Phone

I am one of those people that texting was made for because I absolutely detest talking to people on the phone. I am one of those people who will let a call go to voicemail and then text you back saying I'm in the shower and then make up around 10 other excuses so I don't have to call you back. The only exceptions to my no-phone-call policy are Zach (duh) and my sister....everybody else kind of gets the short end of the stick as far as phone calls go. Text or Bust!! 

Oh and another funny thing about me and phone calls--I absolutely have to be doing something if I talk on the phone. Putting away dishes, cleaning up the bathroom sink, anything. It irks me to no end when someone gets a phone call and stops dead in their tracks to talk for 20 minutes in the middle of the grocery store. Yeeaaahh I'm not a phone person. See, y'all learn new things about me all the time! 

WHAT ARE SOME THINGS YOU'RE HORRIBLE AT?
