This is How I Feel, Volume 56

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.


When someone asks me about being a WAHM… “So you just hang out at home all day in your pajamas?” :|

This is How I Feel, Volume 56


Upon the discovery that I can order pizza online.



When my friends ask me if I’m ready to hit the dance floor.

This is How I Feel, Volume 56


When the new West Elm catalog arrives.

This is How I Feel, Volume 56


When I take a shower and come out and see five new text messages.

    I’ll never stop loving that baby throwing money out of the window. It’s appropriate for so much of my life.

      Real talk. If GIFs were enabled on Facebook, I think I’d use them in lieu of comments – this one most of all.

    That Ken GIF is everything.

    • Reply Roo May 23, 2014 at 11:15 am

      I want to screen grab it, print it out, and put it on my wall.

    First, I love the resized giffy awesomeness (and using non-sensical words). Second as a WAHM blogger I stand by my yoga/work pants when I say that because I work at home Fridays don’t “feel” like Fridays until I see THIFF come up in my Facebook feed. That’s when I know it’s Friday so thanks for that :)

      Hahaha yes! I know, sometimes Mondays and Fridays are one and the same. :)

    That baby one is so cute! That’s like me at Target. Or the grocery store, how does my family eat so much??

    The resizing of the the ‘ol giffers works great! Also, YES, on the West Elm catalog! I flip through it quickly, laughing manically at how far away I am from ever buying anything from there that isn’t 75% off.

    The different-sized gifs always sort of bothered me. I am now at greater peace with them being all matchy and stuff.

    […] you want, you can visit me on my personal blog, Neon Fresh, where I do GIF posts called “This is How I Feel” every […]

    Dude, you can order Jimmy Johns online too. Not that I ever do that, for lunch, or anything…..
    The baby. All the time.

      God bless whoever decided that ordering food on line should be a thing…it’s fabulous. You can also order Chili’s online. And Noodle & Co. And Cafe Rio. Yes, I realize I’m making us sound like recluses that just have delivery every day. Lol (Jimmy Johns is our fav though, faster than driving there, hands down)

    YES TO THE WEST ELM ONE. Can’t stop laughing. Please don’t ever stop making THIF posts ever.

    This is seriously the highlight of my week. You’ve seen this right? http://i.imgur.com/TUndeBu.gif?1 It’s my new favorite gif.

    I cannot stop laughing over that baby one! So true. True also of the ‘Target trance’. ha ha haha.

    I am both greatly amused by your use of the Ken clip…and very *very* saddened that I know exactly the show and scene it came from. :::sigh:::

  • Reply Jessica May 23, 2014 at 9:00 pm

    Resizing those GIFs has made my OCD very happy. Thank you!

  • Reply Kelly May 24, 2014 at 5:51 am

    ACK! So I quite literally woke up in the middle of the night w the realization that the Ken gif was from Toy Story 3 and not the horrid Barbie webisodes on Netflix my kids have been watching ad nauseum. Sooo… you can scratch my last comment, but leave intact my dismay at being familiar primarily w only the children’s media screenshots. =(

    This saves you a lot of time if you’re a frequent traveler, as it prevents you from
    having to remove your backpack every time you go through security.
    In that case you’ll probably pack your bag with lunch and various handy necessities.
    Backpacks come in a variety of designs, forms, shapes and colors.
