IMUO vol. 2

Waaay back in September 2016 I wrote a post about my unpopular opinions. I stand by everything I wrote except I now occasionally use “live your best life” jokingly and I watch basketball (the Cavs) with my husband. Anyway, I’m back again with more.

I don’t like The Avengers.
It’s not that I don’t like them as much as I just don’t have time to watch it all. I love Guardians of the Galaxy and X-Men, but I’ve only seen Iron Man and Captain America as far as “avengers” go. After this last movie am I going to be totally lost when the next X-Men or GotG movie comes out?! Why do we have to combine them all?? It just seems like a lot to keep on top of…

I hate the term “Girl Boss.”
I’m totally ok with making things more feminine if that’s your style (pink jerseys, lace on tool belts, etc.). It’s not my style, but all kinds of kinds, right? However, if you’re a female in a management role or a female business owner then you’re just a BOSS. It’s not a man’s phrase because it’s not a man’s world. It’s your world and you’re running it. Be a BOSS.
(Turns out Nadine mentioned hating this phrase in the comments of my last IMUO post!)

I don’t understand the Cardi B craze.
This might not be unpopular. She may not be a hit with people over the age of 25. I don’t know. Either way, I can’t get into her. I’m not a big rap fan anyway so I think this is pretty normal for me. She just seems like the next big thing and I’m a little clueless and uninterested.

I love Instagram Stories.
Man… I waste SO much time with IG stories. I love seeing pictures or watching people talk about their day or an experience. I don’t mind boomerangs or food pics or videos. Two things I don’t like: videos of concerts and videos of super loud noises. Other than that, I’m entertained for hours by these clips.

I live for rainy days.
You know how some people wait and wait for the sun to come out and make comments like, “What’s that thing?” whenever it finally does? That’s how I feel about rain and overcast days. There’s just something extra cozy about a dreary day. In the same breath…

I STILL hate summer.
I know we’ve been waiting 17 years for the snow to stop and the sun to show herself, but I’m over it now. I opened my windows for a hot second and I shed my coat for a few days. I’m ready for the leaves to change & the temperature to drop. Sorry not sorry, guys. I just looove fall & winter.

I’ll relent just a bit. There are parts of warm weather that I enjoy- evening walks with the dogs, driving with the windows down, ice cream shops being open… but after about a month of all that I’m ready for fall 😉

What are some of your unpopular opinions? I won’t judge you 😉

My Favorites!

Next week I will be on a much needed vacation from real life. I still have posts scheduled here, but I might be a little slower at replying and catching up on other blogs. I promise I will still reply to every single comment and I plan on reading through my usually blogs. This is just a heads up 🙂 I’m actually pretty excited about next week’s posts! Leave me some comments to read on our loooong drives!

Also, I know I’m a little late, but I hope my Muslim friends had a happy Eid celebration! I know things are violent and crazy in the Middle East for people of all religions. Please know I’m thinking of you & your families and praying for you ❤︎

Today I just wanted to share some of my favorite blog posts from the last week or so!

I am still laughing like an idiot about Steph’s post concerning concert go-ers!

Carolann looks for the good in stressful situations- it’s a great reminder from a strong lady.

Amber is giving a pep talk every day this month. Follow her Instagram for your daily dose!

Lindsay’s life reminders- especially this one about things not going as planned– are so refreshing and honest!

Emma is the travel guru! I’ll take her packing advice any day!

. . .

I’ve got one more day of hard work (read: wedding planner duties) before I wind down and relaaaax for the week. Follow along on Instagram or Snap Chat (audie_lou) to see what I’m up to! 😀 Have a fabulous weekend friends!
