Fun or NOT Fun

The other day on the radio they were talking about things that are supposed to be fun, but really aren't.
You know things that movies make look like they are the best activity ever or that you have always thought would be magical.
The top 5 things that are supposed to be fun, but in reality really aren't that great are as follows:
  1. A Picnic
  2. Fireworks
  3. A Parade
  4. The Zoo
  5. Family Reunions
I get what they are saying, but sometimes the fabulous version in your head is worth just keeping stored away.
Since I have been wearing my red Old Navy skinnies so much, before Spring Break I sprang for a pair of their skinnies in green. 
They were even on sale.
Husband has been giving me a hard time about my obsession collection of bright colored pants.
I like the multi-colored plaid with the green skinnies, but threw the pale pink cropped cardi on to tone down the brightness a bit.

So do agree with the things that are supposed to be fun, but really aren't?
What would you add to the list or take away?

Brett, I swear I am taking it easy. I did my bedroom on a good day...lol. Anyway, love the layering and colors in your outfit and I could not agree more with the top 5 list. They forgot baby and wedding showers...oops! dawn suitcase vignettes xo

I love these green skinnies, and plaid is always a good thing in my book :)

I definitely agree with your list, particularly picnics. I always have this grand vision of a beautiful picnic filled with wine and fine cheeses, butterflies fluttering by... when really I just get bit by mosquitoes with a Subway sandwich.

Weddings (hand in hand with family reunions)

Love your obsession with colored pants. I've been bitten with that bug too. Today I'm wearing apricot or salmon. Not sure what color they are but I love them.

xo,

I love the pants! Great outfit!

OMG Brett, I LOVE this outfit! It's perfect. And I've never met anyone who can rock the colored skinnies like you can, so keep 'em coming!

I agree with the list. Especially fireworks and parades. And sometimes, depending on the guest list, bonfires. I love my s'mores, but last time we had a fire, some kid almost poked my eye out with his marshmallow skewer.

Totally agree with this list - but the weird part is that we KEEP doing them thinking it will be better next time. Every time I go to the zoo w/ the kids I end up hot, tired & cranky!

I like your obsession for the dark coloured pants and think it is quite a break from the ever existing jeans and black pants.A dash of colour does a bundle of good to the mind.

Love, love, love this outfit! When my hubby and I were dating, we used to grab dinner and bring it to the beach at night. It was nice until you had to use the bathroom. All the public restrooms were closed, so your only options were to go in the ocean (at night), hold it, or leave early!

Corinne said...

the list is COMPLETELY the truth, which is why i'm laughing so hard at it hahaha. you seriously look amazing! i wish you could give my madre some tips, she's stuck in that awkward in between phase at the moment!
