This is How I Feel, Volume 36

this is how I feel

If you’re new here (hello!), This is How I Feel happens on Fridays, reflecting my deep, deep love of GIFs and dumb captions.


Canceling my Amazon Subscribe + Save subscription for diapers because Minnie is now potty trained. (Celebratory clip here.)

This is How I Feel, Volume 36


When I’m at a party and a few friends who have had too much wine start telling stories from our youth.
No really think about it cause your boss is here.

This is How I Feel, Volume 36


When a server asks me if I’d like to see the dessert menu.

This is How I Feel, Volume 36


When I immediately regret saying whatever it is I just said.

This is How I Feel, Volume 36


When another blogger links to something I’ve written.

    Hoooooold up. Minnie is potty trained???? What sort of witchcraft did you use?

    • Reply Roo December 13, 2013 at 11:25 am

      I had to sacrifice an animal, but it was worth it.

      All three girls trained freakishly early – between 19 and 21 months.

        I second that emotion. I need your spellbook, stat.

  • Reply Kat December 13, 2013 at 11:24 am

    Oh my gosh, when you immediately regret something you just said to someone…that’s the worst!! I do it way too often. Shocking, I know.

  • Reply julie December 13, 2013 at 11:27 am

    the fox one is soooo funny =)

  • Reply Nikki December 13, 2013 at 11:53 am

    Oprah made me snort laugh. Nice work!

  • Reply Jacqueline December 13, 2013 at 12:04 pm

    Bahahah the Dessert and the regretful words!!! Congrats on the potty training moment ;)

  • Reply Julia December 13, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    You beat yourself every week. This is a super lol

  • Reply Amanda December 13, 2013 at 12:28 pm

    My coworker (who I referred to your site a couple of months ago – she’s hooked haha) and I agree this is your best one. The Oprah one, my goodness, her face says a thousand words lol. (What was really going on in that clip anyway?)

    I second the request for whatever spell/witchcraft you used to train your girls so early. I have no kids of my own yet, but since my husband has informed me that he plans to avoid changing diapers at all costs, I need to know how to end that dirty labor at the earliest age possible.

    You also mentioned a while ago on instagram that you keep your wardrobe pretty simple – any chance on showing info on that? The state of my closet is pretty embarassing, and I don’t look nearly as good on you. Just sayin.

    I <3 Fridays at NeonFresh.com! Also just yesterday, I was all, "What happened to the CUTE STUFF SALE?!?" We should do it again, I know tons of Etsy Shops that are amazing now that my Christmas Shopping is D-O-N-E!

    Also sorry for starting the harassment for a CSS!!!

  • Reply Catherine December 13, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    Love.it.all. Seriously, thanks for the laugh!

  • Reply Tara December 13, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    Yes. Just yes to them all!!

    I heart you roo :)

  • Reply Kristin B. December 13, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    I love these! Oprah and the Simpson one is so me. <3

  • Reply Katherine December 13, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    I saved this one for last on my feedly reading today. Did not disappoint.

    What is this world without diapers that you speak of…?

  • Reply Lisa S December 13, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    This might be the best one yet!! Oprah…..can’t even handle it. I laughed out loud!

  • Reply Sissy December 13, 2013 at 6:03 pm

    I (for serious) LIGHT UP when I see this pop up on my FB feed – I think I never remember what day it is and when I realize there’s a new TIHIF I get sooooooo happy. Thank you. I love the potty-training one.

  • Reply PEARLSPEAK December 13, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    the dessert one!!! so true, hahahah

    can I tell you that your Simpsons gif is appropriate to how I felt after emailing you my very first and last time?

    You had just returned from your World Vision trip in Guatemala, I asked something about your This is How I Feel segment and prefaced my question with this “Your blog’s great. Really great. Super great. You’re great. Like, I’m a huge fan of you.” bit that I can only imagine came off as super inauthentic, perhaps even self-serving, but I was authentic, I was juST SO NERVOUS TO WRITE TO YOU! *rolls away in shame* lol

  • Reply Gretchen December 18, 2013 at 12:29 pm

    Talk to me about Amazon Subscribe and Save versus Prime. I want to get diapers from Amazon for the convenience and cheaper rate…is Subscribe and Save cheaper for that than Prime would be??


    • Reply Andrea December 19, 2013 at 10:08 pm

      I just looked it up because I’ve never heard of it before: It looks better than simply ordering things with Prime! Here’s a link with the info (below), and if you click the button on the right (“Shop Subscribe & Save Products Now”), then “baby and child care”, it will show you both the Prime price and the Subscribe & Save price, including the Price-per-count. I even see that some of the items offered have coupons available (it says so under the item in smaller text). :) Hope this helps!


    • Reply Andrea December 19, 2013 at 10:11 pm

      ALSO, if you have Prime, you can sign up for free for “Amazon Mom”, which will give you additional savings on stuff for your babe and you. ;)

    As always these are the best and so true! And thanks for taking a clip of one of my top 10 movies, Fantastic Mr. Fox <33
