Sunday Social 8/26 and funny stuffs

Sunday Social

1. What is the first website you log into each day?
I usually check Gmail the second I wake up in the morning.  The alarm goes off, I scrounge around for the remote to turn the t.v. on (so I don't fall back asleep), and I pull the iPad off the nightstand to check and see if my husband sent me any emails while I was sleeping.  #sadarmywifelife
And then I usually hit up Facebook for a good laugh/frustrated sigh.  (After all, how will I start my day without knowing how your morning commute went?)

2. Give us some funny websites that you visit that we need to know about.

TextfromDog will make you cry.

And this post from Running off the Reeses' had me in tears on Tuesday morning.  

Though the tears could maybe have been partly blamed on the fact that I was up early getting ready for work.

Oh, and these are some great GIFs. 

3. Pinterest or Facebook? Why?
Both are necessary in their own way.
Facebook is something I shoot through once or twice a day, just to see what's going on.  There are only a couple of people I truly use it to communicate with.  I don't visit profiles.  I don't look at all your pictures.  I don't care what your relationship status is because I'm not 19 years old.  I just scroll through the newsfeed as fast as my fingers will take me to make sure I'm not missing something major.  Heaven forbid, I don't feel the earthquake that every one else did.  Or see the snow/rain/sunshine everyone won't stop reporting.

Pinterest is something I hit up last.  It's at the bottom of my list.  Once I've gotten through emails, the stupid newsfeed, Twitter, and my must-read blogs for the day, I'll go to Pinterest and surf around a bit.  I'm not on there everyday, but I do enjoy the time Pinterest and I spend together.

(Was that explanation long enough?)

4. Twitter or Instagram? Why?
Don't these kinda go hand in hand?  The sad, sad part is that I've had Instagram (kedarhower is the name) since last September and had no idea people were following me until about 6 weeks ago.  #loseralert.  
Twitter's fun for talking to blog friends.  I like my blog friends.  

5. Biggest online pet peeve?
1. I hate to harp on this, but for real:  Please spell my name right.  It's in the blog title.  
2. When people comment without paying attention to something the post said.  Read for comprehension, folks.  It's a basic skill.    
3.  People who tweet the same thing over and over again, just re-stating the words.  I saw it the first time.
4. Also, please don't make me follow you to enter your giveaway.  I love to see my GFC number grow as much as the next blogger, but I try not to care because I wonder how many of those people really read my blog.  I don't follow blogs I don't want to read.  And if you don't want to read my blog, please don't think you have to follow me.  But if you read me, I love you whether you follow or not!
As the puppy-stealing reverend says... 
6. Favorite YouTube video. Post it!
Antoine Dodson (rap version).  I'd like to meet him.

funny stuffs.
  • A guy drove his car down the ramp, straight into the harbor in Whittier, Alaska the other day.  I've been to Whittier.  If you ever take me back there, I'll drive my car into the harbor too.
  • Continuing with the zombie theme I have going here...
  • I don't even like Harry Potter.  But I'll still use it to bash Bella's lack of character.


  1. I hate when people spell my name wrong on the blog's RIGHT there!

  2. your number 2 pet peeve! It drives me NUTS when someone comments on my blog like "hey saw your blog....come check mine out!"...uhmm no. lol

  3. First thing I do in the morning is pick up my phone & check my email & twitter. The husband says I'm addicted, I think he may be right. Maybe.

    I've always thought twitter & instagram went hand in hand too. Looks like we both have the same pet peeves. I'm all for having following your blog be an option but don't make it a mandatory entry. Most of the time I'll just move on to another giveaway...yep, that's the sad truth.

  4. I go to bed with my iPad and the poor thing gets rolled over or dumped off the bed by the morning. I wake up and do my social media check first thing too. I need to get a life ;/

    It took me a while to figure out I had Instagram followers too. Not sure how I missed that one??

  5. I always know how to spell your name because my middle name is Kristin.

    But it's pronounced "Christine".

    I bet you know how many times I've had to spell that out and correct people.

    I don't think I'll ever forgive my mom for that!

  6. Oh my gosh! How have I never heard of TextfromDog website!? So funny! I just spent like 10 minutes reading and laughing - THANK YOU for posting it :) And I totally agree with your pet peeves - I really hate it when you can tell someone didn't even bother to read the post - just comments something random and unrelated.

  7. AHAHA, I love me some Antwon Dodson!

  8. definitely agree with pet peeve number 2!

  9. Your explanation about facebook and Pinterest sounds exactly like me! I love Pinterest, but I also acknowledge that it can take up a significant amount of my time, which I am not always willing to spend. I go through all my other internet sites and then, if I'm in the mood. I visit Pinterest. :)

  10. It took me forever to finish this entry! I started reading and then noticed all of the great links! Instead of waiting until I finished reading, I clicked the links and got sucked in. The great news is I did finish! The first website I check is, ugh, and then Facebook! I feel like there's always someone who comments, "Great post! Please follow me back!"

    Between you and Katharine, I can't stop looking for Game of Thrones videos, blogs, and memes. March seems so far away! Have you read the books?

  11. AHHH that Text From Dog is hi-freaking-larious!!!! And that Reese's post?! I'm dying. Cannot even handle it!

  12. Oh my goodness, texts from Dog crack me up! So many of them could absolutely be written by my dog, haha!

  13. I love the Antoine video too, that was almost my pick. Hide yo kids hide yo wife!

  14. I agree with the commenting thing -- sometimes I get a comment think, "Did they accidentally comment on the wrong post?!" And the texts from dogs? Too much. Love it!

  15. People always spell my name wrong :( That's what I get for having a mom who picked "Cari" instead of "Carrie"... :)

    Thank you for visiting my blog Kristin.

  16. You just gained a new follower from this post right here. Not only do I understand the #sadarmywife point of view, your favorite video, pet peeves, and funnies all had me rolling (even though I have a crazy love for Twilight I still laughed LOL)

  17. Bahaha that video is SO funny! Daniel and I were just watching it the other day. It never gets old.

  18. I love that video! And people spell my name wrong constantly!

  19. Aw, your first little bit about checking for an email from your husband is definitely something I can identify with. During BMT, I would rush home from work and run to the mailbox like a child every Wednesday to check for a letter. Sad in retrospect. Haha.

  20. I find that I only check Pinterest when I'm looking for clever photos for my blog. Lame.

  21. I love these, I have seen texts from Dog on Pinterest but now I need to save that website, so funny.

  22. That news story reminds me of this quote: "In the end life and business are about human connections and computers are about trying to murder you in a lake." :)


Comments make my day!
