Loving and Loathing / A Grammar Lesson

1// Cute office accessories (even though I have no office). I'm obsessed with looking at offices on Pinterest. There's really no logic to it other than the fact that I wan't what I don't have. Because I'm sure as soon as I had to sit in one all day I'd be wishing to head back to the park to run after the little guy in the sprinklers. Anywho, I'm not one for planners but if I was I'd choose this Day Designer from Whitney English because it's just so stinkin' fabulous.

2// The arrival of fall and all of the clothing it brings with it. If I could wear one single thing all season long it would probably look a little like this outfit. Except my bag would obviously be a Longchamp and my boots would be knee high. My short stubs don't pull off the bootie look that well.

3// A tablescape as perfect and as pretty as this one. I'm not sure why "professional table decorator" isn't my job title but I need to make it happen. And stat. Because I really would love to recreate all of the lovelies I just stumbled upon on this tumblr. P.S. I don't get tumblr.

4// Everything about this cake. I realize my birthday is, oh, about eleven months away so please remind me when the time comes that this is what I want. The Etsy shop owner seems to be on a bit of an extended vacation though so I might have to just make due with this unicorn one to top my cake instead.

5// Black and white and everything striped. Unfortunately this skirt (that I want oh so very badly because I seem to want everything black and white and striped) (hello #1) is also sold out. But the site has some pretty cute stuff that's offered daily as a deal. Vintage-inspired bows, monogrammed car decals, cardigans, other maxi skirts, you name it they've got it. And for cheap!

This was hard for me today because I really haven't been loathing anything lately. Grab ahold of yourself while I pinch you to prove you're not dreaming because I'm just as shocked as you are. Erin? Not complaining about anything? Whaaaaaat? Tis true though my friends, I just don't have too many random annoyances clogging up my membrane today. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I'm currently housing an entire box of brown rice and red bean Triscuits (so damn good) or maybe the fact that I had a Chipotle and Riesling picnic in Central Park last night? Wait hold the phone, I found one. I found something I absolutely loathe...

When people don't know how to pronounce Chipotle. 

Holy tator irk, I die every damn time it happens but yesterday I heard the worst of the worst. I was standing on the street with my bag of Chipotle waiting for someone when a chick walks up to me and goes "Hey excuse me, where'd you get the Chee-puh-tall-ay? I sat there for a brief moment in utter bewilderment thinking "Excuse me, wha? Did I just get smacked upside the head with a burrito? What is this bitch saying?" And then I realized she was pointing at the bag. And then I realized the world was going to hell. I don't care if you live in Uncle Tom's cabin on a deserted island, I will make it my civic duty to teach everyone how to pronounce my favorite place to house a pound of rice and beans and chicken and corn salsa and lettuce and sour cream. 

CHI (like the first part of chin) POTE (like how you'd carry a tote) LAY (like what happens on hump day). 

See how easy that was? It might be Chee-pote-lay if you're really into your spanish speaking but it's not Chi-pole-tay (notice the T comes before the L you numb nuts). Oh and it's definitely 100% not Chi-pot-uhl just like it's not guac-a-mole instead of the correct guac-uh-moe-lay. Capeesh? Capeesh. And that concludes the newest addition of Loving and Loathing which of course turned into the latest grammar lesson with Two Thirds Hazel. Excuse me while I go stick my head in a dictionary burrito bowl.


Today I have Miss Meghan from "From Meghan, With Love" on le blog. She likes crappy reality tv shows, doggies, and sour patch watermelons. So basically that sums up everything needed to be my life twin. And that just means that you should probably get to know her!

1. If you had to be stuck in one season for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
Senior year of college. Hands down the best time of my life. I wish I could relive it over and over again. All I had to worry about were my easy senior classes, hitting up dollar beer night, and having my already graduated boyfriend be my sugar daddy haha. This whole being an adult thing is hard!

2. What was your favorite cartoon growing up?
Rugrats, obviously. I thought I was a perfect mix of Angelica and Tommy. Sassy and smart. Best of both worlds.

3. If you could hop on a plane tomorrow and go anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Nashville to smooch on my baby nieces. I'm going crazy seeing their fat little legs take over Instagram in their baby bikinis. Ahhh dying. I love those babes.
