We had dinner at our parents last night to celebrate my brother-in-law's (Nora's hubbie) birthday. While we were sitting around chatting, Nora asked one of our other brother-in laws what happened with his Facebook account. She had tried posting something to his wall the other day and couldn't see him.

It turns out he unfriended all of us. Even our sister, his wife. He claims he is going "off-grid", but really I think he is sick of our stupid Facebook posts and jokes. We threatened that we were going to post his full name on the blog and ask you all to friend request him, but that would just prove to him that he's right and our Facebook jokes really aren't that funny. But maybe I'll ask him to be friends again, just to see how he truly feels.

xo,

  1. i've unfriended ppl but that was due to political rants and one girl who complained about her job every.single.post. i also was off FB for 4 years. i just started it for the blog last year.

  2. That's pretty funny...you SHOULD friend request him again... I'm terrible about "cleaning up" my FB account, I have people on there I don't even really know. I need to do something about that. Although I do unfriend people who keep asking me to play some game over and over again. Love both of your looks too!

  3. I had three Facebook pages that I decided to combine last week. Little did I know that I would lose all of my friends and ability to see them in the process. Now I just have one page but it is a "page" and I can't follow anyone. Ah well. I was wasting too much time on there anyhow. LOL

  4. That's actually pretty funny AND sounds like something my husband would do. He hates FB and rarely uses it. He doesn't even like my business page! I wish I had the guts to unfriend more people - I always feel so badly. I just 'hide' the people I don't want to see.

  5. Haha, that is a pretty good story... I have FB, but am not very active on it. Even though I probably should. :) Love your outfits!

  6. That totally sounds like something my husband would do too. He hates pretty much all social media, lol. I'm like Cate, I tend to hide the people I don't want to see, it feels so final to pull the unfriend trigger, lol.

    LOVE your outfits, I am thisclose to getting a pair of pants like that Nora - I've seen them on a lot of people and I think I want to pull the trigger!

  7. 1. Love those outfits and I enjoy seeing how you 2 interpret the inspiration!
    2. I think that having everyone friend him is hilarious, he seems just like my BIL who doesn't even have a facebook, probably for all of the reasons that your BIL unfriended everyone :)

  10. Oh dear! That would catch me off guard also!! It's crazy how emotional and defensive that we can get when this kind of thing goes on in the social media world. For the record, I never get sick of your jokes, etc on Facebook! Maybe he's just stressed out. I love both of your inspirational looks! Happy birthday to Nora's husband!

  12. Oh my gosh! That is so funny. I've hidden people before, but never unfriended. I hid the last person because she checked in every single place she went. I did not need to know she was an Office Depot.

  13. I think I heard of un friending before, a strange bit of cyberspace .

  15. Sienna Miller is my inspiration every day. I always say I am deleting Facebook, but I never can seem to do it. Going off the grid sounds great but I am too addicted to Instagram! Haha
