10 Best // Ways to Avoid People


1. netflix.  i don't even want to admit how close i am to finishing gilmore girls, considering i just started it a month ago...  anyway, next up is finishing the killing and starting the 100.  what are you watching?  i'm loving this what to watch next map.

2. learn. the age when kids can finally understand most of what i say.  no wonder i don't like them, they're no fun until junior high.

3. spend some quality time with your pets.  there's so many fun apps out there.  if you haven't already, download walk for a dog.  every time you track your walk with your pet and hit 1 mile, they donate to the local rescue organization of your choice.  and it's free.  oh, and you don't even have to have a dog to use it.  so exercise fiends out there, start tracking your runs!


4. shop online.  thinking up christmas gift ideas?  this shirt says everything these 'avoid people' blog posts stand for.  i want it.  also, this is a good list for where to find unique gifts.

5. prep for thanksgiving.  i don't cook for it, but i can certainly appreciate 21 big batch cocktails to get your family drunk.

6. then prep for the coming black friday.  can't believe it's already been a year since i wrote about the 6 life lessons you can learn from black friday.  also, scroll down to kathy's comment on that post, it's a gem.

7. laugh.  so i turned 30.  i may have only been 30 for one day, but i know this post couldn't be more true.  down to the onesies.


i'm not entirely sure i'm ready for the responsibility of a blanket scarf yet, but i'll think about it.

8. win.  a fun christmas gift you can personalize.  i've made two for john, they always end up so cute!

9. cook.  crock pot mashed potatoes.  make your thanksgiving a breeze.

10. vote for hawkeye, if you haven't already.  or, ya know, vote again, from another browser/computer.  we're from chicago, that's how we roll - vote early, vote often!

and if all that fails, i suppose you could venture out this weekend.


happy friday!

  2. Ooh, that dog walking app sounds awesome! My favorite way to avoid people is to just spend time with my pets. I'm sorry, but my dog and cats are better company than most people. Oh, and I am cooking for our family for Thanksgiving (yikes!) and I pinned that big batch cocktails link too. It's better if everyone is a little drunk before we eat.

  8. I may be a bad parent but I laugh at some of the crazy things Emmy comes home with like.."We almost lost our party day because some kids were calling other kids Narwhals. Apparently a dolphin/unicorn hybrid thing is the ultimate put down. I am loving the app. Anything to raise money for animals.

  15. I'm also watching Gilmore Girls and can't get enough!! Before that, I binge watched The Mindy Project. Love that map! And that t-shirt is priceless and pretty much sums up how I feel most days. I often find myself talking to pets instead of their owners haha Happy Friday!

  16. Omgosh I love the crap outta the Gilmore Girls, I'm way overdue for a rerun....mostly because I've been spending my time rewatching Hart of Dixie instead....bring on Jan 9, I can't believe they've made us wait for so long!

  17. Sometimes I think I should go out and socialize, but then I just get in bed and watch Netflix instead and I'm totally ok with it.

  18. Hmm I'm not sure if I'm getting your feeds - need to check! Black Friday reminds me of that movie, The Purge - complete anarchy and violence are acceptable for ONE DAY! People just forget their entire moral compass for an ITEM. It's ridiculous - I don't like to shop that way but I do enjoy walking around to watch others fighting and miserably standing in line. Not I - I always opt for online shopping or only go for small things if needed. My bf plans to go to Micro Center with his dad but not sure if he is still doing so. We'll see - there's really nothing that we need worth all that effort. Thank you for sharing my article love, love the support!! It's Monday and it's a 3-day work week so I'm happy!!! Have a great one Stephanie! -Iva

  20. Happy belated birthday!!!

    My Gilmore Girls marathon has slowed because I've been busy, but I'm still watching. I'm in the middle of season 3. I forgot how long they drag things out. Rory isn't with Jess yet. Luke hasn't professed his love yet. HURRY UP! Ha!
