frugal feathers: is it bad?





shirt ~ thrifted
shorts ~ F21, thrifted
sunglasses ~ thrifted

earrings ~ hand-me-down
shoes ~ Target

~ is it bad that on sunday night i thought we were having a potluck appetizer dinner at my parents', so i ate my weight in apps, only to find that my mom had already made dinner?
~ is it bad that i felt bad that my mom had already made dinner, so i ate again out of guilt? (not that it wasn't delicious – and worth it – after all, i always have room for tacos.)
~ is it bad that after the two dinners, we decided to go for a walk to try to get nora's baby moving along...wait, i'm not done yet....and four of the six of us brought a glass of wine?
~ is it bad that halfway through the walk we heard glass shatter and realized our mom had dropped her wine glass?
~ is it bad that immediately after the shattered glass incident, we heard sirens and laughed that the cops were coming after her?
~ is it bad that chris went out of town for the weekend and came home to a completely redecorated home (new furniture and all)?
~ is it bad that my kids can be the biggest jerks around, but the minute they are either out of my sight or sleeping, i feel like they can do no wrong?
~ is it bad that i am scared i won't have enough funny stories for you guys once nora actually has this baby and i am relegated to doing blog posts every day?
~ is it bad that i am being lazy and doing an "is it bad?" post?
~ is it bad that i plan on doing more "is it bad?" posts?

happy tuesday, all!! i hope it's not bad!
xo,
megan bird

  6. I love the 'is it bad' post! I think you've got the funny post thing down pat, no worries. And you surprising your husband with a re-decorated house is intriguing - how exactly did you manage that?? :)

  10. That always happens with my kids - they could be driving me completely crazy, and I'm so ready to put them to bed. And then they fall asleep and I want to wake them up and play with them again.:)

    Love those shorts - I really need to learn how to thrift!

  11. Haha, I loved this post so no, it's not bad! Running out of stories/ideas for blog posts is a fear of mine too. Sometimes it takes me forever to think of something to write about!

  20. I don't think that you will have any trouble being funny, and I like the shorts!

    ReplyDelete
  21. No -

    It was funny. Instead of the usual tale / form of telling events, you made it more interesting because I wasn't sure were you were going with the next explanation. hahahaha.

    Baby -- now!!! come on baby -- now.

  24. I love these "is it bad" or "hey its ok" posts, they remind us that we're all real people with real life issues. LOVE your shorts and yes, there is always room for tacos! :)

  25. What?! Its like puns, none of it's bad; it's all good. Like this outfit. You look lovely.

  26. Is it bad that we eat a ton of food and think that a stroll down the street (or in my case, the mall) actually burned some of the 4000 calories we just consumed?... Probably... But we do it anyway because it eases our conscience... Sounds like you had a great time with your family!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Is it bad that I would have done all of those things? Love your thrifted shorts! Fun!

  38. Your shorts are so cute! I need to find some pattern shorts before summer is over. I really like them, but I can't seem to find any that are not too short for me.
