Mr. Rogers and unrealistic size charts

Bring on the weekend! It’s been a week of late nights working with the hubster and I’m looking forward to no work for either one of us. Well, hopefully. He’s a bit of a workaholic. Sliding into Friday with Oh, Hey Friday, High Five for Friday (add’l links below) and Friday Favorites!

 

Favorite Song This Week

 

Edge of the Dark by Armon Jay. Did I discover it because it was playing during the closing scenes on one of my favorite shows? Maybe. Still a beautiful, haunting, song.

Let’s be real. Everything you ever need to know was taught to you by this man.

Favorite Funny This Week

 

Because this is a JOKE, right? Uh, no. This is one of the actual size charts from Trottin Trendy, LLC. I ended up there following a pair of pants on another blog. Initially I thought that a size 7 being a XXX-Large was the most offensive. But no. No, it’s the idea that a size 0 is a Medium. WHAT??? Because shopping and sizing wasn’t hard enough, let’s call girls that are a size 4 “extra large.” F*k that. Seriously. F*k that.

Favorite Moment This Week

 

My second Stitch Fix arrived!!! (Remember how excited I was for my first Stitch Fix?) Keep your eyes peeled for the full review next week. And you should go get your Stitch Fix on, too – here’s a Stitch Fix Referral link.

Favorite “Home” Spot This Week

 

Next to the fireplace, with our first fire this year. There’s something so cozy about snuggling up by a fireplace!

    WTF is up with that sizing chart! I would choke on that fine wine your drinking if I read that. Im a size 10 after my recent pregnancy… and Id die if I was like a 5XL or whatever that website would call me. Happy Friday!

      Stephanie, LOL – exactly! Perhaps it’s obvious, but I did NOT purchase the pants I’d been tracking, and I won’t be visiting their site again. More wine!

    Hey, so I found your blog on one of the link-ups I do and I love it. 🙂 And according to your Bloglovin’, you have less than 200 followers. So I nominated you for a Liebster Award. 🙂

    That size chart is crazy! That’s a shame! I love being cozy next to the fire place. Thank you for linking up to H54F!
